“Great place to stay for RAI shows”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

Very nice hotel in the southern area of Amsterdam. Close to the airport and the RAI convention center.

The hotel is very clean and has a very friendly staff. The king size bed I had gave my wife and I one of the best sleeps either of us have in a long time. The bathroom has a huge bathtub but the way the shower door is setup on the tub makes it feel weird when taking a shower.

Had the breakfast buffet for 23 euros per person. All the food was good except the scrambled eggs. They tasted a little bit like flavorless foam.

They also have a nice bar to unwind in at the end of the day. Good selection of mixed drinks to choose from. Food is also available.

It's a short walk to a main tram station and a stop. Very easy to go down town and then hop on tram 5 all the way back.

Dear valued guest,

It was a pleasure to receive your review through Tripadvisor and to read that you enjoyed a good stay at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South.

While staying away from home it can be challenging to enjoy a good night’s sleep. It was great to learn that this was not the case for you. We know how important sleep is. Sleep is the fuel that powers your day. At Crowne Plaza, we've thought of elements to help you relax and ensure you enjoy a great night’s sleep such as luxurious bedding, aromatherapy, Quiet Zones and guaranteed wake-up calls.

Thank you as well for your feedback about the scrambled eggs. It is very valuable for us to know what exactly can be improved on our product and service. With regards to your remark about the shower I would like to inform you that we have both rooms with walk-in shower as bathtubs so upon your next stay with us please indicate at check-in which option you prefer. We are always happy to consider and grant any guest requests upon availability.

We hope to welcome you back as our guest again in the future and thank you once again for taking the time to write a review.

With kind regards,

I've been to Amsterdam many times in the past and I hadn't really found a good business hotel yet. Too bad I had't found this sooner! Only negative is that it is far from the city center, but I would definitley return!

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor.

It is great that our facilities and service are connecting to what is important for you in a business hotel.

Our location, despite slightly remote from downtown Amsterdam, is unique as Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport and the RAI Convention Center are only a few minutes away by public transport. On walking distance of the hotel you will find station Amsterdam- Zuid with fast metro and tram connections into town.

We definitely hope to welcome you back soon and assist you again in making your journey a success.

Kind regards,

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.

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.

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.
