We had a great trip to Amsterdam made perfect by our stay at the Amsterdam American Hotel. The property is located in the old part of the city near museums and good restaurants. There is a street car stop in front of the hotel and other public transit is a short walk from the hotel. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms are small and the bath tiny but functional. The hotel was clean and the property is well maintained. The breakfast buffet in the dining room is the perfect way to start your day. The outside bar and café is a perfect place to enjoy the evening sunset with a glass of wine or beer. This is a historic property constructed in the early years of the 20th century. The architectural details are worth noting, particularly the impressive four story stained glass window in the stairway. I would stay at this property again.
