“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We spent one night at this hotel in Jan. 2014. We had a bit of trouble finding it at first but after we familiarized ourselves with the area is was easy to find and conveniently located. The room was nice, clean, and quiet. It is a bit pricey but is a nice place to stay if you can afford it.

This place has a pretty good location on the edge of the red light district, it's only a short walk to many of the coffee shops, bars, and the red light ladies if you're into that.

The rooms are a little small, but that's expected in Europe when coming from the US and the beds are single beds, which is not very enjoyable. The rooms are clean and the concierge lounge is OK too. The lobby is nothing special and the exterior isn't either.

Overall, the hotel is OK, but not great, especially for a Rensaisance.

We spent 2 nights in Amsterdam on our way to Tanzania in an effort to get over some of the jet lag. We chose a large hotel because we wanted a bit more predictable experience under those circumstances. If we'd been staying a week, we probably would have chosen a small B&B for more local flavor. The Renaissance was perfect for us. The best part was how helpful the concierge (Navigator) was to us. He mapped out the public transportation routes & sold us a 24 hour pass. He even found a medical supply store for my husband, called to confirm their hours and mapped that out. He advised us to get our return ticket to the airport the day before and just really helped us avoid any pitfalls. He recommended a great Italian restaurant (Savinis) at the corner, too.

Me and my girlfriend have spend there two days. Hotel quite, nice and clean, very good located , realy close to major attractions of the city.Bed very comforble , and extremely big. Room was pretty tiny though, but thats probably because of the anourmous bed:) Not top of my best hotels, but can recommend it.

Very comfortable room (the bed is niiiiice) and great service. The lounge area with games, drinks and snacks is awesome; a really nice touch.

Excellent location with convenient access to Dam square, Spui and the train station. My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay.

Stayed two nights here while in Amsterdam in January 2014. The room was a little tight which is not unexpected. The bed was very very comfortable with lots of pillows. Room was clean. Bathroom was a good size. The breakfast was wonderful, tons of options. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was good, not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle which was nice, but very walkable to everywhere and just down the street from the central train station. We would definitly recommend this hotel.

Had the pleasure visiting tunes inside the Renaissance hotel in Amsterdam. A great place to chill after visiting the amsterdam museum's next door. Pleasant atmosphere, quick service and good wines and bites.
