“Excellent Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

We stayed here in January for a long weekend (wedding anniversary) and had a very pleasant experience. It's the second time we've stayed here and last time we had a room with a canal view but this time we were at the top facing inwards, however the room was bigger. No complaints about decoration, the bed, facilities and the heating was fine, We had to ask for dressing gowns (free) but they were provided straight away. I don't think anyone has mentioned it but the hotel has four PCs available (free) with printers for guests. Very useful for online confirmation of the return flight.
Leidseplein for us is the best area to stay in Amsterdam. It's only a short walk into the old city area in one direction, and very close to the big Art Museums in another. I also like having the entrance to Vondel Park just across the road. If you stay here then you must try eating in the beautiful Art Nouveau restaurant. I would recommend the regular Jazz lunches on Sunday. Two excellent musicians playing live, plus buffet style lunch.
We arrived at the hotel early which wasn't a problem as they have a room for storing luggage. Similarly the day we checked out we were able to keep our luggage in the hotel until the taxi arrived to take us to the airport.

We recommend this hotel and hope to return again.

Room Tip: I would say a room on the canal side is nicer. Quiet & you can watch the ducks.

Just back from a wonderful weekend stay at the American Hotel in Amsterdam. This hotel has everything you need to stay in the city. It is ideally located near the museums and old town canal rings with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. The staff are friendly and efficient. And the rooms and hotel have interesting art deco features. This is a luxury stay in old Amsterdam. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Definitely worth the upgrade to a junior suite.

Was welcomed by Clayton at the front desk and from the very first impressions he gave I knew it would be a great stay, and we was not disappointed, the hotel is clean, tidy and the staff, from the front desk to the cleaners, bar staff were all very polite, the room we stayed in was the basic kind, but rest assured the room was big, as was the bed, we had an internal balcony which was great, quiet and very private, the Hotel is right on top of the main square, which can get noisy, but we heard nothing from our room, this is the forth time I have visited Amsterdam and have stayed in lower end hotels as well as higher end hotel/apartments, but let me say when I return it will be here I stay again, it's not the most expensive I have stayed in, but value for money you will not beat, one very small downside was the Sauna was out of service whilst some work was be done during renovation works, but to be honest that did not take away anything from the break, thanks to everyone at the Hotel for a lovely break,

Room Tip: room with internal balcony are very quiet, and during the summer a great sun trap for those who enjo...

My grand daughter and I shared a lovely evening sitting in the bar overlooking the beautiful fountain. The lights in the water shimmered against the dark night sky as we chatted about her dreams and expectations from life.
The staff were very kind and the bar serves a great martini cocktail.
Thanks so much.

This is a very nice hotel for a city holiday in Amsterdam, great location, professional staff, a special mention for the morning shift concierge who is really friendly and always willing to help out.
The breakfast at 20 euros per head is excellent.
The rooms are okay, I would recommend an upgrade to deluxe rooms with a view at 50 euros per night if you will be spending any considerable length of time in the room.
Would definitely stay there again.
Tip : there's a bus that goes to the airport right across from the hotel at 5 euros only, discovered that a bit late, but thought my fellow travellers should know.

I stayed at the hotel for two nights on business. I appreciated the central location, just steps from the bus to/from the airport. The staff was very helpful and the sleeping room quite large. At least one other reviewer noted the availability of elevators, but they may only get you so far. I stayed on the mezzanine level and there are a few stairs between the elevator and the rooms, so you still have to lift your bags up and down a bit.

The large room I had facing the canal was excellent and clean. One of my colleagues had a room that was so drafty he had to ask for blankets to stuff around the windows, but that was not my experience. It may be because I was on the mezzanine level and the windows were doubled up. I would recommend this hotel for either business or leisure.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the canal are much nicer.
