I had the pleasure of staying at the Eden Amsterdam American Hotel last week for business. The hotel is a wonderful combination of Euorpean architecture and art deco! Beautifully situation overlooking the Leidseplein square, The American Hotel has a lot to offer the business and leisure traveler.
My room was clean, efficient and with a balcony overlooking Leidseplein. The cafe and restaurant were wonderful and full of energy. The counter staff and concierge were wonderful and helpful.
The American Hotel is perfectly situated for all your business and social needs. Walk out the front door and you can ride the Tram 15 minutes to RAI Amsterdam (Convention Center) Or 15 minutes to Central Station.
It is only a 15 minute walk to the Fashion and Museum district. I highly recommend visiting the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum.
Every night the Plein is filled with people eating and drinking at all the cafe's, bars and restaurants. If you are looking for something more American. There is a Hard Rock cafe 5 minutes away.
I would recommend getting a 96 hour Tram Chip Card. This will allow you travel all over the city. The card can be purchsed for 19 Euro. Take a ride to Central Station and stroll through the Red Light District. This reminded me a little bit of Bourbon Street. You can then walk South and see the Royal Palace and Dam Square. Tired? Just jump on the Tram and take it to your next stop. You will not be disappointed at the American Hotel for a truely great Amsterdam experience.
