Our third trip to Amsterdam and we chose the Eden American for the great location in the Leidseplein and the provided amenities. We love Amsterdam and checked out a number of hotels for this trip.. We had once enjoyed the Bellevue, The Park, and also spent five days on a houseboat. Nothing can compete with the houseboat experience, but the Eden filled our needs for this trip. We had a split agenda arriving for a 2 day stay, heading to Groningen for a night and back to the Eden for one night. We had an early check in to a great room, very spacious, to rest up after our flight. We were able to leave our bags for the night away and returned to an equally lovely room. A friend traveling with us also had one of the beautiful balcony rooms overlooking the city. We were very happy with the service, comfort, location and value. A beautiful hotel. Don'r miss eating at "de balie" a few steps across the square. Our favorite.
