“New and comfortable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

With a limited choice on the Zuidas of Amsterdam between the "sleeping factories" of Holiday Inn and Novotel, the Crowne Plaza, next to Amsterdam Zuid station is a welcome addition. A good and comfortable business hotel with clean well designed rooms. The only thing that is disappointing is the breakfast offering.

Crowne Plaza South is a fantastic hotel - we stopped here for 2 nights with 3 children. On arrival the service was exceptional. Charlotte and Henrick the reception staff are brilliant. They advise perfectly about sight seeing/ trams etc. The rooms were exactly as requested when booking - interconnecting with an extra bed. The beds are fantastically comfortable. The hotel is very well located, nearby to several trams stops and only 15 mins to to centre of Amsterdam. The parking can be expensive at the hotel but one of the top tips is that parking on the road is free at weekends. On leaving, Henrick even looked into our travel route to advise of any issues. Fantastic hotel and would definitely recommend.

I attended an international conference at this hotel recently and was very impressed with this hotel and its staff. From Schiphol Airport, the hotel is only one-stop away via the train, then a short three-block walk to the hotel. It is located in a cluster of high-rise modern office buildings, so the sidewalks are wide and smooth (easy to roll your suitcase). The staff was very helpful, with immediate, personal attention to make sure my computer could successfully connect to their free Internet connection--important but rare excellence on this point!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the central atrium are quieter.

New hotel in a suburb but with very easy links from the airport and into the centre of Amsterdam. The train from the airport is only one stop. Trams and metro into the centre are very frequent and take about 20 minutes.
There are a few restaurants nearby but I would venture into town for a better selection.

The customer service in the hotel is excellent. I couldn't fault them.
The bar is reasonably priced with a good selection.
Breakfast is overpriced at €22.50 and there isn't a great selection.
Rooms are fairly spacious and comfortable with everything you would expect from a Crowne Plaza. My room was on the 10th floor and was very quiet.
I would certainly recommend this hotel for those who don't mind being away from the hassle and bustle of Amsterdam central.

I had to spend a night in Amsterdam and decided last minute to use my Priority Club points in order to book an hotel.
It was short but perfect. I immediately got an upgrade and a room on the last floor. Also got a complementary drink, as well as internet, thanks to my status on the PC program. Personnel was VERY friendly and smiling.
Room was very nice, bathroom also, and above all very clean.
I travel a lot and see a many hotels, but I had to write something positive about this one.

I always say the service can always cover up lots of negativities and if everything is wonderful than it can be a cherry on top. The moment I arrived and till I checked out I can't pick on anything sighh lol. Just the small lil things and their patience with me made it all the more pleasant. My room was beautiful and had evrything in it. Breakfast had both hot and cold food also the chef at the counter was wonderful. Was a superb stay.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I will refer your kind words to our breakfast chef; he will be delighted to receive your feedback.

I am also happy to hear our service was the “cherry on top” of your experience rather then a cover up.

Hoping to welcome you back in the future.

I was initially apprehensive when I approached this hotel as it is situated in the business district and I was on holiday with my partner but had a brilliant stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone. From a friendly greating at the reception desk and little touches like a call to check we were happy with the room to the comfortable bed and spacious room on the 11th floor with a good view I was delighted with our stay. Considering that it was a little way from the town centre using the tram it was not inconvenient and great staying away from the hussle and bussle. Admittedly we didn't go for the breakfast as 22 euros each did seem excessive and instead tried different places on our journey into town which was more fun and most likely better value. I booked on-line and the site I used told me of the pay on departure city tax that seems common to the hotels in Amsterdam. Overall one of the best stays in a hotel I have had with very helpful and friendly staff. I suggest getting a unlimited travel pass from Central Zuid station as this saved us money on the trams.

Room Tip: I took the top floor corner room as it was the most spacious.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for your kind words. It particularly pleases me to hear that you have experienced our service as friendly, helpful and personal.

We fully understand that a hotel in the business district of Amsterdam might at first create some reservations when staying for leisure purposes. To read these reservations were overcome with the comfort, calm and personal service is great praise for our hotel. Thank you!

I am also happy to inform you that during your next stay you also may purchase an ""I Amsterdam"" card in our hotel. This card gives free access to several museums, public transport and a free canal cruise. It may make your stay even more convenient.
