4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Amsterdam is def a city worth visiting as it has everyting for everybody.
I stayed at the American Hotel which you could not fault on location. You could walk to everywhere from here or simply take the tram which just stops outside. Room was lovely and clean and surprisingly not that noisy. Food in the hotel was also rather nice, but I tended to eat out a lot as the city had so much to offer.. It is a hotel I def would choose when I come back to Amsterdam again...

Excellent service! My room just happened to be ready when I arrived at 10:30 AM. I know this is not usual, although coming off of a 10 hour flight, it was great to check in and shower before exploring the city.

The staff was friendly and personable. The rooms are large for the money, coupled with the great cafe downstairs and the location, I will stay here again on my next trip.

This hotel is very centrally situated in Amsterdam. The airport bus, which runs every 30 minutes, stops just outside the hotel. The tram, which can be boarded just minutes from the hotel, runs right through the centre of Amsterdam. The staff in the hotel are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, spacious and have tea and coffee facilities. An ice machine is situated just down the corridor. On checking out of the hotel, a room is available to store luggage, and spacious and clean toilets are available. There are numerous good eating places within minutes walk from the hotel. A small supermarket is situated about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is also close to a park and a number of very beautiful canals and bridges.

Room Tip: Ask for a spacious room.

The American hotel lies directly at the Leidseplein. A very nice hotel, with a great service and large rooms.

On the edge of a major restaurant area and accessible to the museum plaza by a short walk, the hotel is attractive for visitors who want to get to the museums early in the day and have dinner within a short walk. The tram to the central train station and the bus to the airport are one minute from the hotel entrance. The hotel is not top class, but there were some dirty towels left in the bathroom, but all in all, it was a good base for a six-night stay.

Room Tip: A room facing the canal and on the top floor is quieter.

The hotel website states that wireless internet is free. Technically, this is true but the internet that is provided for free is so slow, my server was timing out as I tried to receive my e-mails. When I called to see if this could be fixed, I was told that that "bronze" service that is offered at no charge is very slow. In order to get a connection with adequate speed, I would need to pay 20 Euro.

I won't be back and I advise others to shop around as there are much better deals. I do not deal with businesses that advertise falsely.

The elevator key card system did not always work, without multiple retries. Our room carpet was stained. The internet service was not availabe in the rooms but free in the public areas. However the restaurant was quite good. The location was excellent.
