My son and I have just spent a week at the Crown Plaza, Amsterdam and we were absolutely delighted with the hotel.
Our holiday was a last minute booking . We booked the flights and then the hotel. The hotel was recommended to us and it did not disappoint.
Our first encounter with the staff was very welcoming and friendly. The reception area was very neutrally decorated and the air conditioned quiet was a relief after a long hot journey from the UK. As we arrived late morning and the room was not ready until mid afternoon we stowed our luggage at the hotel and set off exploring straight away.
Amsterdam is a very walkable city and the Crowne Plaza is excellently situated
When we eventually got to our room it could not have been better. It was a spacious twin-bedded room with two double beds. The room had air conditioning, a large widescreen TV with a good selection of channels including BBC1, BBC2 and CNN , coffee making facilities and a minibar. There was an ice machine on our floor and we bought beer and drink from a local supermarket .
The bathroom was very clean with grey stone tiling and a very efficient hairdryer. There were a few toiletries placed daily and there were two bathrobes laid out on the bed when we arrived. The bathrobes were great but we made the mistake of not hanging the towels out one day and new bathrobes did not appear !
The room was well insulated for noise - our room overlooked the street which was a major tram route. We even spent time watching as the rails were being worked on whilst the trams were still running !
Each day the coffee, milk and complimentary biscuits and mint chocolates were replaced as was a complimentary bottle of water.
We were on room only so had to go out for breakfast. The restaurant seemed very expensive so we never ate there. There were plenty of places to get pastries and coffee and there was a McDonalds round the corner. We tried the Chinese restaurant across the road which was absolutely fine but rather costly.
The location was the main joy - everything radiates from the Central Station and we were less than 5 minutes away. We were able to purchase canal rides at the hotel which saved queuing. We did a lot of walking and took day trips to the coast from the station.
Anything to do with travelling seems relatively cheap and everything runs smoothly.
The hotel was brilliantly placed for all our excursions and was a welcome and peaceful haven from the hubub and heat of the city. Our stay was during the main build up to the World Cup Final and everywhere was a sea of orange and happy expectation.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and it will certainly be my first choice on a return visit.
