“Good Rooms, Good Location, Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

This hotel is located close to public transport and a motorway. On site parking is very expensive, but from 7pm to 9am street parking close to the hotel is free.

The hotel itself no located in a business/residential area and is clean and modern, although there is not a lot around to do, but there are a few restaurants.

Rooms are clean, modern and smart, staff where extremely helpful and full of advise on, especially on the parking. Beds like all Crowne Plazas are not to everyone's taste, personally I don't like the pillows and can rarely get comfortable but I find this common issue for me in a lot of hotels.

I stayed here for two nights and it was a good choice as I was working and needed peaceful working environment. Football was on during my stay but it didn't interrupt me.

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 look forward to welcome you again soon.

With kind regards,

Crowne plaza, first impression from afar-a quality hotel. My first visit to this chain of hotels was at ams, it greatly exceeded my expectations. Very classy, Everything was planned down to the smallest details. E.g. they really planned a gd sleep for you, super luxury bed with what they called a sleep advantage in small packaging. That worked for me! You can even find lots more than what you need in a hotel rm! Super spread of breakfast in the cafe by great service. Great recommendations over the counter on sightseeing and yummy food in nearby restaurants! This great experience resulted in me booking a week in another crowne plaza in beijing, looking fwd to the stay this month! And I even just signed up for IHG membership which includes crowne plaza and my all time fav holiday inn chain! Thanks for the great service, appreciated it!!

Dear valued guest,

Thank you so much for writing a Tripadvisor review and for sharing your findings following your recent stay with us.

It is great to learn that you enjoyed the various facilities and the design of the hotel.

Did you notice the musical theme that is represented throughout the building? The New York origin of George Gershwin has led to the names of our meeting rooms and the famous Manhattan 101 cocktail inspired us to name our restaurant one o one and Manhattan Lounge- Bar.

After a good night’s sleep a nutritious breakfast is the perfect way to re-energise and prepare for a productive day. It is great that you were happy about the quality of our breakfast and that it contributed to your stay.

On behalf of the entire team I would like to express our gratitude regarding your compliment on their behalf. It is our passion to deliver the best possible service and compliments of guests are our motivation to continue to improve continuously. Your review is definitely an inspiration and very rewarding.

Hopefully we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South in the near future.

Kind regards,

It's got a stylish and modern decor, the rooms are spacious by Dutch standards, the service is friendly and efficient, the restaurant serves tasty food ( albeit off a limited menu), and it has a couple of small things- that I really liked- namely their "sleep" solution and the massage chair in the gym ( which btw is also quite spacious by Dutch standards).
Not to mention very good cable and a very good wifi-that was complimentary.
It's a very decent business hotel, that has a lot going for it.
Yup- finally a hotel in Netherlands- that I found really comfortable to stay in. Will like to return.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same size but I reckon choosing the higher floors wil provide a better view- thoug...

I was in Amsterdam for work and stayed in Crowne Plaza for 4 nights. Service staff at the front desk, restaurant, etc were all very warm, welcoming and helpful. Checking in and out was a breeze. Room and facilities were fantastic. In particular, I love the 'this works: sleep' pack on the bed.

As this hotel is in the business/offices area, there are not much options in the area during the weekends, nothing to explore. Thankfully, the hotel is near to the Zuid metro station, or one could take Tram no 5 to the city. Getting around is not a problem.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much staying at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South and for taking the time to share your experience with the travel community.
It is great to learn that our staff members made you feel welcome from the start and that the different facilities in the room were able to make your stay with us comfortable. It is our aim to combine the best possible facilities with great service to make each guests stay a success.

At Crowne Plaza we know how important sleep is. Sleep is the fuel that powers your day. The Crowne Plaza Sleep Advantage program includes luxurious bedding, quiet zones and aroma therapy. In addition our soundproof doors keep away any distraction from outside so nothing stands in the way of a great night’s sleep and s speedy recovery from a jet-lag.

The Crowne Plaza Amsterdam-South is situated in Amsterdam-Zuidas.This area is the new urban centre devoted to international commerce and knowledge development. The location is unique because Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport, the RAI Convention Center and the city centre are only a few minutes away by public transport. The area is still under development to become a centre for working and living and therefore also the restaurant, shopping and facilities offer will be extended in the coming years to make the area livelier.

We definitely hope to welcome you back in our hotel soon and to assist you in making your stay pleasant and memorable again.

My younger self may have recommended a happening hostel in downtown Amsterdam, but the current one really likes the idea of a nice comfy hotel, with lots of space, awesome service, quiet rooms even if its a bit out of town so I would need to take the tram to town to partake in the debauchery (maybe). This is a great hotel in the middle of the financial district, very close to Schiphol.

Very good service at every juncture, front desk, breakfast, etc. The bar was nice, and I appreciate they were kind to me even when I was cheering for Mexico during the world cup and was wearing my Mexican jersey. Gym is small but very clean and well equipped, and they even had a motorized massage chair. Little details all around, the mint, cucumber or lemon infused water at the lobby, the smiling faces, it just worked out really well for us.

In addition, by taking the tram we had a chance to look at some of the nice neighborhoods outside of central Amsterdam, where the real folks live. it was overall a very nice experience.

Great hotel very close to the main Schiphol airport. No need to take a cab. Easy 5-10 minute train ride direct from Airport train station in direction of Amsterdam Zuid. Only 3 euro per person. From the train station the hotel is easy to find directly behind the Symphony Tower, maybe a 3 minute walk. Front desk was friendly and very helpful. This is a recently renovated hotel, and the lobby, bar and room with amazing beds were all excellent. My husband and I purchased a 48 hour unlimited tram/metro ticket at the front desk. Definitely the way to go. Catching the tram is easy and takes you right into central Amsterdam in about 25 minutes. Nice thing about the multiple day tram ticket, once downtown, you can hop off and hop on different trams if you don't feel like walking from sight to another. You will discover that central Amsterdam is VERY crowded with tourists. At the end of the day or after dinner in the city center, we appreciated returning to the quiet surroundings of this wonderful hotel.

Stayed here for work for about two weeks in June. Location is a bit outside the city but close to metro station probably about 25 minutes to downtown Amsterdam by either bike or metro . A large number of businesses are located close by.

The good:
-Modern hotel good restaurant and bar
- Access to decent gym across the street
- Close to Queen Beatrix Park if you enjoy running and outdoor activities I ran there almost every morning during my stay

The bad:
-As I was here for work the location was fine for my purposes however it's in a office park type area and there really aren't a lot of amenities close by.

Overall would highly recommend it for business purposes and possibly for vacation purposes too if you're looking for something a little bit outside the city
