The rooms are really comfortable, the mattresses firm and the pillows really comfy. The bathrooms feel a bit special - shower could have been a little more powerful but still it was pretty good.

My room rate didn't include breakfast - be warned breakfast here will set you back 25 Euros where a pastry from a nearby bakery will be no more than 4 Euros. What breakfast I did have in the hotel wasn't all that stunning. Certainly not worth the 25 Euros.

That said, the staff are very helpful. I had a problem with the air conditioning which was fixed within a few hours (and a note left on my door telling me the work had been done). Doorman service was very good too.

Very close to the old town. Most decent stuff in Amsterdam - the old town stuff - is nearby, no more than 15-20 minutes walk down canalsides etc. So it's well placed to the tourist stuff and various other eateries. Very close to the train station too. About 20 minutes in a taxi from Schipol airport.

I'd probably not stay here if I was having a break in Amsterdam (I'd prefer something with a bit more charm overlooking canals etc) but otherwise it's a goodun.

Internet access charges are an absolute crime - 20 Euros for 24 hours or 7 Euros - but there is free internet access in the business centre in the basement. It's a bit small but it suffices.

Restaurant was quite good - lovely pea soup one night.

My husband and I stayed the last night of our vacation. After sleeping in tight quarters and small beds for two weeks, this was a welcomed change. The room and bathroom were spacious and clear. The location is great and within a 5 minute walk to Amsterdam Central train station (with a quick train ride to the airport).

We were greeted by a relatively friendly staff who held our luggage while we explored the city. Breakfast was decent but overpriced for what it was. I would recommend this hotel but it could quickly be a budget breaker.

We went away for my partners birthday in dec 2009, sorry for the delay!
This hotel is brilliant!! We got there at about 12.20am and the staff were very professional.
And the service they provide is fantastic!

This hotel was lovely! They had a nice lounge area downstairs and its very peaceful there. I came downstairs one night when i could get to bed and just sat there going through the books they had on the shelfs. No one bothered me, it was great!

Room:

Lovely roomy bedroom, The beds were the most comfortable beds I have now slept in! We got there on the night of my partners birthday and it was snowing outside, freezing! But the rooms were very comfortable and warm.
They provide a bathrobe and slippers, nice touch! Toiletries in the bathroom and a safe in the cupboard.
Large flatroom tv wall mounted.
Ice box and ice machine on every floor.

They had lots of hot drinks stacked up everyday on our return from our day sight-seeing which was very nice as it was very cold and you would need to return back to the hotel for a warm drink.

Food:

We ordered food the first night, room service was quite expensive but then again for a 4 star hotel, its what you would expect.
I tried to order a dessert with a candle, they didnt have a candle so i still ordered hima birthday treat and was pleasently sprised to see his dessert said happy birthday written on the plate.. very sweet!

Bathroom:

Very clean and tidy, spacious and good powerful shower with lots of hot water!

Location:

This hotel is in a fantastic location, i couldnt believe how lucky we were when i booked the holiday. so close to everywhere you need to be!!

Honestly if your going to Amsterdam and want somewhere nice to stay... Stay here! You wont be disappointed.

If I ever come back to Amsterdam I will stay here.

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights, overall it was a pleasant stay. Room was a good size compared to other local hotels. There is a tram stop by hotel which is convenient. Although if you've been to Amsterdam you know you will end up walking the whole time. So i would definitely stay a this hotel again.

This is a top notch Crown Plaza. I am staying here this week for a trade show at the RAI. It is a short walk to Amsterdam Central Train Station. The staff is wonderful and the rooms are large, clean and comfortable. I strongly recommend this hotel for anyone.

I saw many United Airlines people here. So they also consider it a great hotel..
