“Modern Hotel Close to Transportation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

My husband and I spent two weeks in Europe, and this hotel was my favorite from our entire trip. The rooms are laid out well, the bed was incredibly comfortable, and they provided great customer service. It would have been nice to be closer to Amsterdam in some ways, but on the other hand this hotel would have been a lot more expensive. It is located right by a train station, and it took maybe 10 minutes to get into the city. It provided a nice quiet oasis for us. Plus, all day train tickets are very affordable (I think only 6 Euro) so we often came back to our room to rest.

I especially appreciated the infused water in the lobby. I'd fill up my water bottle with the mint water and it was a nice treat all day.

Dear valued guest,

It was a pleasure to read your Tripadvisor review in which you mention our hotel to be the favourite one you stayed in during your trip to Europe. It is a compliment to know that our customer service contributed to that.

Great as well to read that you positively experienced our quiet location outside the busy city centre, also thanks to the very efficient public transport options that are situated close by the hotel.

We hope to welcome you back again at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South when you visit Amsterdam again and thank you again for your kind words.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen

This hotel is conveniently located if you need to go to Amsterdam by car (right off the highway).
Connection by public transport (tram, Metro) to the city center is quick and easy, you have to walk for 5-10 minutes to the nearest stop.
The hotel is located in a very trendy business area, the buildings there are quite interesting to look at, not your average office buildings.
The hotel itself was surprisingly design and trendy with an interesting architecture, I had expected it to be more of an average business hotel. The rooms are pleasantly decorated in modern design but still have a cosy feel, definitely very nice room to stay in. The (standard) rooms are rather spacious and absolutely calm. Personally I liked the little extras you get for free, I loved the pillow spray and fragrant roller pen for better sleep, nice idea! Staff was friendly. The only minus points are the overpriced breakfast (20€) and overnight parking fee (around 40€, probably this is normal in Amsterdam?), the room price we paid for a double room was very reasonable (120€).

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor about our hotel – we are happy that you found the time to share your experiences with us.

It was a pleasure to read that you enjoyed the location of the hotel and the area around it. Did you know that it is possible to experience the “Zuidas” and its daring architecture during an architecture walk?

Great as well that you enjoyed our rooms and facilities. As a hotel should ideally be your home away from home it is important for us to know that you felt comfortable staying in one of our rooms.

Thank you as well for your feedback about the parking and the breakfast. Due to the high traffic pressure in Amsterdam, the prices of the public parking spaces are kept very high. Please be aware that there are options around the hotel where parking is possible against a lower rate.

Regarding the breakfast I can inform you that we offer the possibility to enjoy a smaller and therefore less expensive breakfast in the bar of the hotel as of 8 am. You might consider this upon your next stay with us.

We do hope to welcome you again in our hotel in the near future and thank you again for your review.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen
General Manager.

Me and my husband have just come back from a long weekend trip to Amsterdam and we couldn't have made a better choice with regards to accomodation!

Though we were a bit concerned when we booked, thinking we would be a bit too far from the city, we realised the hotel is only 10-15 minutes away from the city centre (tram), in a very quiet and clean area which was a relief to come back to in the evening, as the city is too crowded (and dirty, especially in the centre). Very helpful and professional staff, very well equipped room, we would definitely stay there again when we go back to Amsterdam!

We very highly recommend it!

It was a pleasure as well to read that your previous concerns about the location of the hotel disappeared once experiencing the ease of reaching the city centre using one of the many public transportation options at the Amsterdam- Zuid station.

Thank you once more for recommending us and our team would be more than happy to welcome you back as our guest when your travelling plans bring you back to Amsterdam.

Just back from 4 night here, 3 mins walk from Amsterdam Zuid station (also known as WTC), there you can get to Schiphol in 8 mins or down town in 15 mins, you have a choice of train.bus, metro or Tram. Hotel itself is almost brand new, rooms are clean and very large for Amsterdam . welcome by check in staff was prompt and friendly , room facilities included an espresso, flat screen TV with more than enough English channels , super comfy bed and blackout curtains that do just that. Would recommend this hotel anyone, have stayed in center before and without ear plugs you struggle to sleep, in this hotel you get no such problems

Dear valued guest,

Thank you so much for writing on Tripadvisor about your stay at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South. We were happy to read in your review that the hotel, its facilities and the staff members were up to your satisfaction.

Great as well that you would recommend our location for a good night’s sleep. Not only is the hotel situated in a peaceful and quiet area but on top of that Crowne Plaza also features the Sleep Advantage Program including Quiet Zones (our fifth floor), plump soft pillows, luxurious duvets, deeply indulgent mattress toppers, sleeping tips and aroma therapy. Hopefully you were able to benefit from this program as well.

Thank you again for your review and we hope to welcome you back as our guest in the near future.

We initially chose the Crowne Plaza South in large part due to its proximity to the RAI convention center. It was such a great experience, however, that we would happily stay again if visiting the city for vacation. It's nearly effortless to reach the hotel from the airport via train: simply disembark at the first stop (Amsterdam Zuid), exit the station on the south (Mahlerplein) side, and walk two short blocks. The hotel lobby was airy and inviting; a nice welcoming touch was the trio of water pitchers flavored with fresh mint or lime or lemon from which to pour oneself a cool drink. The staff were friendly and efficient.

The hotel is ideally situated for accessing multiple tram lines as well as the subway and bus. We enjoyed taking different lines in order to see a wide variety of Dutch neighborhoods. As many have already pointed out, the hotel is not in the city center but we appreciated being able to return at the end of a long day to peaceful surroundings. In addition, the hotel is close to the huge Amsterdamse Bos green area to the west and the beautiful Amstelpark to the east with a windmill at its southern tip. There was a small mall, including a grocery store, just a couple blocks south of the hotel.

The hotel room was clean and spacious, with a modern, chic design, and had a safe, a small refrigerator, an electric hot water pot for coffee or tea, a lounge chair and ottoman, a small desk and work chair, and a flat panel TV. For travelers requiring a dark sleep environment, there are very effective black-out curtains on the windows and a well-placed curtain in the room to pull out if one wanted to block even the small amount of light coming in from under the hallway door. The impeccably clean bathroom had feature walls tiled in a deep plum color, a nice contrast to the rest of the area in sparkling white, black, and chrome.

We noticed the day we checked out that they also rent bikes, which would be perfect for exploring some of the parks in the area. There is a daily charge for wifi it but it might be waived if you're one of their Priority Club members. The only less-than-glowing comment was that, at least during our stay, the TV interface to the hotel and local information could be really slow at times.

One tip: for a splurge meal, try out the restaurant Bolenius around the corner from the hotel.

Room Tip: Room on a higher floor was extremely quiet.

Dear valued guest,

We are very grateful that you took the time to write such an elaborate review on Tripadvisor following your recent stay at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South. It was especially great to read that you consider the hotel a suitable location for both business as leisure purposes.

Business guests indeed select the hotel due to its location in the Amsterdam- Zuid business district and the proximity to the RAI convention centre and Schiphol International Airport.

Leisure guests on the other hand should absolutely not be put off by our quiet location outside the city centre. The public transportation options from Station Amsterdam Zuid enable you to be in downtown Amsterdam within 20 minutes to enjoy the sights, shops and the diverse cultural offer.

If you want to feel like a true Amsterdam inhabitant, rent one of our hotel bikes and explore the city on two wheels. Over 400 km of bicycle path combined with its narrow streets make Amsterdam the perfect city to explore by bike.

After a long day of impressions and excitement, the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South and its natural surrounding area is a peaceful haven to unwind and relax.

We are very happy that you enjoyed the hotel and its environment and we do hope to be your hotel of choice upon your next visit to Amsterdam.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen

I had stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and 4 days for business. What we really appreciated was the early check in on the day of our arrival. The rooms are of good size and so are the meeting rooms. The bar and the restaurant serve a nice selection of food and drinks and it isn't very pricey. However, it is far from the city center though walking distance from a metro station. Somehow breakfast wasn't part of the room and was average. Would recommend this hotel if you plan on going for business.

This is a brand-new hotel. the rooms are comfy large and well designed. the staff is nice and friendly and the location is very convinient if you work at the WTC in A'dam. Within 15 minutes metro ride from the city center, you can even enjoy the nightlife of the capital holland. If you are not a business trip, do not stay here

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience with the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South on Tripadvisor. All feedback we receive is highly appreciated as we always strive to improve our service and product.

We are happy that you were positive about our rooms and staff members. Due to our location in the heart of the Zuidas area, mostly business guests know how to find us. However the area has quite some nice lunch, dining and shopping options to offer and is rapidly being developed to become an international top location for living, working and recreation. Our Front Desk team will be more than happy to inform you about things to do and see in the surrounding area of the hotel and of course in downtown Amsterdam.

With kind regards,
