Just finished a 7 day stay at this fine hotel, conveniently located near the RAI convention center, where I was attending a large conference. It is a pleasant 20 minute walk to the RAI, either along the street or through the park that borders the RAI. The staff at the hotel are young, very friendly and professional. My room was nice, quiet and large by European standards. The breakfast buffet is overpriced, as are all breakfast buffets, with hot & cold dishes and someone who will make you an omelet. I had all my meals in the bar, although there is a nice restaurant as well. The meals I had in the bar were good, with the pepper steak special being the best (probably one of the better pieces of meat I've had in Europe). The two young men staffing the bar were very friendly and took their cocktails seriously. Overall, you can tell that the staff is trying to make your stay a top notch experience and they succeeded in my case. This area is a business/financial district with little of the character of old Amsterdam. However, the metro/tram/bus station is 2 blocks away and the very nice mass transit system will get you where you want to go in short time. There are a few good restaurants in the area,but I think most people would find themselves going elsewhere for an evening out.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for staying at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South and for taking the time to share your feedback with us on Tripadvisor. It’s great to read that our staff service has contributed to making your stay memorable.
It was a pleasure to learn that the location of the hotel worked well for the purpose of your elaborate trip and you enjoyed the walk to the Rai Convention Centre, which is indeed only a short walk from the hotel. On top of that it is great that you were so positive about our spacious rooms, which are equipped with soundproof doors that keep away any distraction from outside so nothing stands in the way of a great night’s sleep.
We sincerely appreciate your feedback about the breakfast. We understand that the price of the buffet is high for guests who eat a small breakfast. To also meet their needs we offer the option to compose your own small breakfast with products like yoghurt and croissants combined with juice or coffee in our bar against a more affordable price.
Thank you for complimenting our Manhattan Bar staff in particular for the assistance in making your experience memorable. Positive guest feedback is a great motivation for all of us to continue to strive to deliver excellent service. It is great to know that you experienced the sincere passion of our staff members to assist our guests into making their journey into a success. In addition it is great to hear that our pepper steak made such an impression on you, especially as you have a taste for steaks.
We look forward to welcome you back again soon.
With kind regards,
Ingrid van Veen
