“Aboslutely Best Stay In Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This Hotel was by far the best for customer service in any of the hotels we stayed in across Europe.Big thanks goes to Karen from the front, who made our stay the best ever.Our room which we booked as a club room was on the 7th floor and had some nice views of the city around us.We chose to stay here based on the great reviews on trip advisor and the people arnt wrong here.Although a bit far from the centre of town, its still very easy by public transport or the staff are more than willing to call a taxi which takes around less than 5 mins to arrive and about 10 euro into town.The whole front desk, breakfast staff and Manhattan bar staff were amazing.Thanks for a Wonderfull Time during our very short stay.

Room Tip: book the club rooms.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I recently traveled for business and stayed at this hotel (staying a grand total of 13 nights). My experience with Amsterdam hotels in the past had been very hit and miss. Some are great for location but you have to put up with noise (particularly the city center hotels) Others are good hotels but the internet sucks (and is expensive to boot). The picky traveler usually has something to say about the hotel experience in Amsterdam and as much negative as positive feedback is in my experience the norm.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The management run a tight ship - the hotel was spotless, the staff courteous and the meal options surprisingly varied and high quality. The rooms (at least my room) was smallish, but well appointed (iron and ironing board and all the other expectations of a US customer were addressed). Room was quiet - internet was good.

The great aspect of the hotel was that it is a couple of minutes brisk walk away from the second biggest rail terminal in Amsterdam, Amsterdam Zuid, which is a great way to visit the central city (a few minutes away on Metro 51) as well as train options to the airport (10 mins away) and to destinations near and far.

Given the concentration of offices nearby, it is clearly setup for the business traveler but would make a great destination for people on vacation, with all of the comfort and privacy of a hotel outside of the city center, but with great connections to explore Amsterdam at your leisure.

Highly recommended. I'll be using it exclusively for future business trips to Amsterdam.

Dear valued guest,

It gives me great pleasure that you have found in us your hotel of preference in Amsterdam. To earn your loyalty by consistently meeting your expectations is the greatest compliment a hotel may receive.

I agree that a lot of credit goes to our convenient location, in the heart of the business district. However, to receive your praise on cleanliness, service of staff and quality of meals over a thirteen stay experience is the icing on the cake!

Upon your next stay I look very much forward to welcome you back in person and I would like to thank you very much for this review.


Kind regards,

Close to Zuid station, close to great bars and restaurants, walking distance to the World Trade Centre at Zuid, comfortable and quiet rooms, great breakfast and great running at the Amsterdam Bos which is 10 mins away. Reason enough to max out my Priority Club card.

Room Tip: Room 1011 was my favourite.....no rooms on either side.

We stayed there for 3 nights in February 2013 and really enjoyed this time. Very relaxing hotel, comfortable, nice rooms. In addition the staffs are more than sympathic
A bit far from the city centre, but easy access. You just need to take the Metro 51 from Centraal Station, and stop at Station Zuid. Some 20 mins metro drive.
The area the hotel is located is surronding by nice building and a lot of consulting firms are located over there.
Highly recommended

Room Tip: Choose room facing the lake side

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for reviewing the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South following your recent stay with us. It is a pleasure to know that you had a positive experience with the hotel and its staff members and that you would recommend us to other travellers.

As you mentioned already the hotel is located outside the city centre of Amsterdam in an area named Zuidas. This area is the new urban centre devoted to international commerce and knowledge development and is strategically located between Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport, the RAI Convention Center and the city centre of Amsterdam. To get to know the Zuidas we recommend the architecture walk during which you can learn a lot about the exciting and daring architecture and attention to public space and art in the area.

Thank you again for reviewing and recommending us. We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back soon.

Kind regards,

one person-business-2 days.
It is hard to find as new (as of Feb 2013) so not on all gps maps...and not directly on the street-it is in between a canal and another building.

Check in staff speaks great English. i think most are here for business.
Hotel is about 10k south of AMS city centre. Very close to main train station on South side of city, with excellent connections to everywhere.

It is very new and modernist style. The rooms are not big, but very nice. The style seems asian, very much like the hotels i stay at in Shanghai and Hong kong.

The bathrooms are grey and glass. not big, but nice. no bathtub or bidet. shower has overhead water + outlet on flexible metal hose.

bedding is very comfortable and inviting. much better than average. tv coverage is good with channels from many countries and languages. No dedicated movie channels. lot of lighting and big windows.

Room Tip: a canal view is the better view.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your opinion about your stay with the travel community through Tripadvisor.

I am sorry to hear you had difficulty finding the hotel. It is indeed challenging to find our location on navigation equipment produced before 2011. Our Reception staff is happy to provide directions, or an alternative navigation location.

It has been a pleasure for us to learn that you enjoyed the quality of our bedding, as a Crowne Plaza we strive through our Sleep Advantage program to excel in our sleep experience.

Thank you for taking the time to write an extensive review, we sincerely hope to welcome you back in the very near future.

Stayed here with family for three nights during February 2013. Visiting Amsterdam for a weekend break mainly to see the sights and when we were travelling to the hotel from the airport I was a little concerned that it was going to be a bit out of the way. It is out of the city but the location is not an issue. It is a five minute walk to both the tram and metro which will take you in to Amsterdam city centre in a little under fifteen minutes. Very good public transport network in Amsterdam. Back to the hotel itself. Basically, excellent sums it up! Very nice rooms, well appointed, spacious, modern and clean. Amenities very good, mini bar, safe and other room facilities. The staff here are excellent, very courteous, accommodating and knowledgable. Also, they are not interested in selling you things, they are obviously interested in giving you the bet information possible. This is something which I find very positive. Overall, I can't recommend this place enough, excellent staff and great stay - keep it up!

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your positive and rewarding feedback, following your stay at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South, with the travel community.

It is great that you confirm that our location in the business district of Amsterdam and slightly removed from the historic city centre, is absolutely no reason to not consider us for a leisure stay. The proximity of station Amsterdam- Zuid ensures you a short train-, tram- or metro connection to both the city centre as well as Schiphol Airport.

It is an absolute pleasure that the facilities of the hotel combined with the staff service made your journey a success and worth recommending the hotel to other travellers.

Thank you again for your review and we hope to see you back soon.

Kind regards,

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable. Everything was spotless. The bathroom was spacious and the bath was nice and big so you could really relax. The experience was fantastic. We wouls love to return to this hotel. The hotel is slightly far out from all the main attractions but it is worth it. The room service was lovely.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for rating your stay at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South. It has been a pleasure to read your kind and rewarding words about our hotel and service.

The greatest compliment for a hotel is to hear that guests had a great and relaxing stay and would love to return. It has been our pleasure to contribute to that.

It is great that you do not consider the hotel’s location as a drawback for a leisure stay. As you probably experienced the railway station Amsterdam- Zuid is situated only minutes walking away from the hotel. Here you will find tram-, metro- and train connections into the city centre and to Schiphol- Airport.

Hopefully we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon when your travel plans bring you back to Amsterdam.

With kind regards,

Tara Meulenbeld
