“The Perfect Hotel in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

I would highly recommend this hotel..got a very good rate and the location was excellent. Just right across Leidsplein N when you are in Amsterdam that's where you want to be...staff was friendly and the room was very nice and very well maintened. Would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Amsterdam :)

Having seen the somewhat variable reviews on tripadvisor was nervous about booking this hotel but decided to go ahead as our friends visiting from Bali were already booked to stay. On arrival we were very quickly registered and our room proved to be spacious and clean. The location of the hotel is fantastic being close to the museums, nightlife and pretty much everything that is going on in Amsterdam.

Having stayed in the Leidseplein area several times we decided to finally stay at the American Hotel after having passed it on countless occasions. We were very happy with how comfortable the rooms were. This didn't strike us as a typical Amsterdam hotel as the rooms were larger and the stairs were not long, steep and winding, which was a bonus.

The main selling point for us was the location. The square has loads of bars and restaurants and the Vondelpark is just around the corner. We would stay again.

I had a great romantic weekend in amsterdam together with my wife thanks to the Amsterdam American hotel.
The hotel is fantastic located in the centrum off Amsterdam and all is on walking distance or going by tram.
We had a wonderful big room with a terrace, the rooms are big and clean the bathroom is normal standard.
The staff is very helpful.
Breakfast was perfect we got our breakfast in the room so very enjoyable in morning.
Dinner ?
I would recommend this hotel for a long weekend in Amsterdam for couples or with family.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a terrace.

Fantastic location for a number of reasons:
- directly outside the tram stop that brought us to and from the airport
- multiple tram stops to take you to opposite ends of the city
- not inside the red-light district, but walking distance to see and experience it
- excellent location for walking to museums and other must see's
- right on the canal, across from a rental site where you can rent pedal-pusher boats and tour the city via the water... WAY better than the paid guided tours!!
- hotel was old but re-furbished... much larger room than expected (large enough for 2 adults in 2 beds with space for suitcases and moving about)
- all staff spoke English and were kind and willing to help us find our way around
- free internet in the upstairs lobby, including free computers where you can print off maps and other informatio

We would gladly stay here again. Our room was large - especially for a European hotel. Location was ideal; we were a 10 minute walk from the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. Trams and buses all stopped across the street. You can get there easily from the airport taking the bus. Restaurant was beautiful we didn't eat there as it was a bit pricey. Just ask for a room facing the canal as we suspect rooms facing the square would be noisy, especially in the summer. Desk staff was always pleasant and the concierge was very helpful.
