“Very Average Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

My family and I stayed one night at this hotel during our Trafalgar tour. We don't really have a good impression of the hotel because they had misplaced my daughter's luggage. Apparently the porter had put it in another room and it was not found until we had all left the country and reached Germany causing us a lot of inconvenience and distress! Unless you are in a tour group with easy access to transport, the location of the hotel is far from ideal. It is way off the city centre, located along the expressway. My room on the 14th floor has a good view but the bathroom/toilet had an unpleasant urine stench. Housekeeping apparently did not do a good job cleaning it. I called to complain and they did offer to wash it but as it was already past 10pm, I told them to instead spray some fragrance to mask the smell. Also, the bath towels are not only thin but rough to the skin. Toiletries are provided though. There is no safe in the room. Free wifi is a plus, so too is the complimentary coffee/tea-making facilities. This is a non-smoking hotel (something which I appreciate) with a 24hours - small gym (which I, unfortunately, had no time to check it out). Adequate selection at the buffet breakfast. Too bad we were so upset with the lost baggage that we had no appetite to eat anything.

Dear Sir / Madam,

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Mercure Hotel Amsterdam City. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies.

It was very unfortunate that your luggage was lost during your stay at the Mercure Hotel Amsterdam City. I can understand your frustration by losing your luggage.

However, I was pleased to hear from my housekeeping manager that your luggage was found the next day. Although you already left the hotel and traveled to Germany our Assistant Housekeeping Manager offered to personally drive to Germany so he can deliver your luggage in your next hotel.

Again my sincerest apologies for losing your luggage!

It is correct that we are located just in the outskirts of Amsterdam, but in retrospect the public transportation is fairly close by and in walking distance. Next to that we offer our guests the possibility to rent bicycles and even a Vespa scooter. This means of transportation allows you to see more of the city.

Recently we have introduced the boot trip to the city centre. The boat leaves every day at 10:00 and will dock at the Anne Frank house. A nice way to start your day in Amsterdam.

Our rooms are very well equipped. Varying from a flat screen tv, coffee and tea making facilities to a safe in our room. The safe of the room can be found in the closet.

As the General Manager of this hotel I am very proud of our breakfast buffet. It is in my believe that we serve one of the best breakfast buffet in Amsterdam. Especially due to the extended range of our breakfast products.

We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future.

Sincerely,

Robert van Vliet
General Manager

I was really impressed with the size and quality of the room. I was a single traveler and I had a nicely appointed room with a double bed. The layout of the room is nice with a sliding door between the bathroom and closet, a large shower and a nice vanity and sink. The decor is also very modern. I didn't get to experience much of the hotel as far as amenities go, but from what I could tell there was a very nice breakfast area (but an expensive one, about 23 Euro a day). All the staff I encountered was very friendly as well. The only recommendation I have is to include the free coffee maker in the lobby to work past 9 AM.

Although the hotel is a good distance out of the centre and in a business district it is easy to get into the centre. There si trams 5-7 minutes away but we found the Metro quicker and easier. It was only about 7 minute walk to the Metro station OverAmstel and 10 minutes into the Amsterdam Central. The hotel puta on a canal boat into the central Amsterdam each day at 10am for €5 per adult and €2.50 per child. Cheaper to go by Metro but easier if you are going to the Anne Frank House, as it stops near there. We enjoyed the hotel and breakfast was great, excellent choice and tasty. Rooms were fine, nothing special but warm and comfortable (we were there in December). Any issues we had were very minor but solved very quickly and with a helpful attitude. I thought it was good value with easy access to the centre of Amsterdam.

Stayed at this property in early October and after a few mishaps with the room key having to be reprogrammed three times we finally made it to the room. The rooms were big and relatively clean (altough a spring clean wouldn't go astray) it had all the facilities you needed.

The staff were somewhat "hit or miss" - sometimes they were friendly but other times they weren't. Didn't really bother us as we only stayed one night.

Overall location and room facilities good and I would stay again.

I was about to spend a nice weekend with a friend in Amsterdam and we booked this hotel. Unfortunately my friend's father suddenly passed away the evening before our trip so obviously we could not make it there. I called the hotel, explained them the situation and asked for a date amendment or a refund and I was told as I booked the room last minute they are not in the position to accommodate my request. I mean, seriously I have never in my life seen such terrible, heartless customer service, shame on them. Not even willing to do something, totally careless.
I have not stayed in this hotel, but even if I got the chance, would never come here, there attitude is disgusting.
