The hotel is based right near the central station (about 5 mins walk away) really good location, as you come out of the central station across the road and canal you will see the Victoria Hotel you need to take road to the right of that keep walking up and you will see a purple flag with crowne plaza on it.
The Reception staff were all very friendly and helpful, if you are an IHG member (which we signed up for when making the original booking) you get a free newspaper everyday, free Internet in your room, we were informed that you had to sign into this and select a payment option but this is refunded, which it was, you also get 15% discount from the bar and Dorrius restaurant which is great.
The room was a decent size, nice big comfortable bed, all bath accessories are replenished every day and you get a complementary bottle of sparkling water every day also (would have preferred still but hey ho).
The food in the Dorrius Restaurant was lovely and our waiter was absolutely brilliant (Wim Schiller) my husband tried a dessert called "Hang Op" which was a funny experience!!! not my type of thing as it had rusk, cream, cinnamon, brown sugar and natural yoghurt, but my husband enjoyed it.
Really enjoyed our stay here, we were also informed by the lovely lady at reception that they can book trips there, she gave us a map of Amsterdam which was really helpful. We booked a 48 hour canal cruise so you can hop on and off and visited the Van Gogh museum and also the Rijk Museum both good but the Rijk was better.
While you are there you should try their waffles also yummy!

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.
It is wonderful to read that you comment the staff as beig friendly and helpful and that you enjoyed the benefits of being an IHG Rewards Club Member. I agree with you in saying that the location of the hotel is very convenient. As you mention the hotel is located within walking distance of the Central Railway station and easy to find.
Furthermore it is also great to read that you enjoyed having dinner in our New Dorrius restaurant and bar. Our modern New Dorrius Restaurant & Bar offers a relaxing atmosphere. Enjoy delicious Dutch classics or international favourites. Meet each other for a cup of coffee during the day in our New Dorrius Bar, or for a cocktail in the evening.
