“Convenient Location With Clean, Comfortable Rooms and Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We moved to this hotel after a disappointing experience at our original booking. It was very comfortable with an up-to-date bathroom. Easy walk to canals and nice restaurants, but quiet at night for sleeping. A big bonus was the club room, included for travelers on United Airlines with Silver or Gold status. The club room had unlimited beverages and coffee, plus fantastic snacks in the afternoon and a delicious buffet breakfast. We would definitely stay there again!

Nicely decorated room, with a good soft bed, but:

1) very small. You have to squeeze around the end of the bed, and there is no room at all for luggage

2) a lot of traffic noise

3) my pet hate: Internet at 80 euros for the week. It's provided through Swisscom, so when it didn't work you end up getting put through to a Swisscom call centre rather than somebody that can sort the problem out at the hotel

There are far better hotels in the same locale, such as the excellent Crowne Plaza over the road.

If you want to be close to the major attractions in Amsterdam the Renaissance is perfect. It has one of the best exercise rooms in Europe and the staff is very responsive to your needs. The cafe is also a very good lunch spot.

Room Tip: Ask for an inner room. They are very quiet.

Best location to see the city. Close to AMS-Centraalstation and everything else. Friendly staff and spotless clean rooms in really good conditions. A lot of business travelers from the US and Asia, but you never felt to be out of place. Great bar. We could recomend for everyone from 30 to 80. Not the spot for partypeople in their twenties, but I don't think they want that to be.

Boys flying trip to the dam, did everything we needed it to...clean, efficient staff, breakfast worked. Bad bit- when I got back to the UK I found they had double charged me for the room. When I questioned this, having had to phone the hotel in Amsterdam I was told that my friends card provider had rejected the payment even though he had a receipt confirming it had gone through, they then put his share on my card without contacting me which I believe is fraudulent...

Thankfully my friend checked his bank when I mentioned this (after swearing blind he had paid) & found it had been re credited a couple of days after.

So in summary, CHECK YOUR STATEMENT!!!

Very clean property within walking distance of the central railway station and the old town. Club lounge and reception staff are very good. Would recommend this property for leisure and business travel.

I stayed here for 3 nights with a friend on a city break, it's a business type hotel so the design reflects this. The hotel is really central and about 4 mins walk from the train station. We requested a high floor and got a nice room on the 4th floor with a view. The room was spacious, the beds are really soft - too soft for our taste - but they had lovely feather pillows.
All the staff we met were really friendly and there is always a 'navigator' in the lobby to help with directions. We didn't get breakfast on our package because it was so expensive ( €28 each per day) but there's lots of nice cafés on the canals nearby.
Tips: ask for a room on a high floor to minimise street noise, request extra towels - we only got one 'bath' towel each and the other towels are teeny.
Restaurant Tip: La Pearla in the Jordaan area is famous for its pizzas but you'll have to book in advance - we didn't so we went to another Italian restaurant 'Assaggi's' on the same street. We had a lovely meal and they serve late ( they were still taking orders at 11pm on Fri). There's also lots of lively bars in this area so it's a good spot for a night out.
