“Amazing and Outstanding Time Staying at the Hotel Okura Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

The Hotel Okura Amsterdam was an outstanding luxury hotel. My daughter and I stayed four days-three nights and loved everything about our first time experience in Amsterdam. The hotel was recommened to us from a friend of my daughters and we were very happy. The hotel itself is beautiful when you walk inside (the outside isn't very attractive when you drive up so don't be alarmed). The lobby is lovely and has an Asian feel and decor. The hotel is along a canal and we ate outside after we checked in and had an outstanding late lunch. The professional staff who checked us in were wonderful and upgraded our room without asking to a jr. suite whch was so nice. The rooms are extremely large, very spacious and lovely decor with very comfortable bedding. We both had three wonderful nights of sleep which was great because of all the walking and biking we did in the city. The conciege was extremely helpful, friendly and nice and we were able to get museum passes, train tickets and outstanding reservations at restaurants in the city. Breakfast was included each morning and the choices on the buffet were delicious with lots to choose from. The hotel isn't in the heart of the action which we loved most about the Okura. We were able to really get a true feeling of the city of Amsterdam and it's neighborhoods. The area isn't noisy and it's easy to get to anywhere you want to go. Amazing local and incredible restaurans that are walking distance. The next time we are visitng Amsterdam we will only stay at the Hotel Okura.

Room Tip: Everything about the hotel was outstanding. You will love the bathrooms which are extremely large.

The hotel was suggested by one of our dutch clients and it was a very good surprise, a bit far from the city center and perhaps not so appealing from the outside (that 70s style looking building) but inside it was a very different world. Professional staff, elegant yet simple lobby/room/facilities, very clean. Incredible breakfast buffet.

Stayed at the Okura for two nights after our wedding. The room was really beautiful, and a perfect place to spend our wedding night. The room were spaceious and functional. Well stocked minibar. The bed was big, and very comfortable. he bathroom had both a tub and a shower.

Service is impeccable, very friendly and professional staff. Roomservice is also great.
This was our second stay at the Okura, and we would love to come back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in one of the higher floors, its a wonderful view from the rooms up there.

I have stayed at the Okura in Amsterdam for a weekend with my husband followed by 3 business days. This is a very good hotel and the staff is very professional and helpful (especially Yordi!). It is about 15 minutes on the Tram from Dam Square, take Tram number 25 from Cornelis Tram stop and you can also buy your tram tickets directly at the hotel reception. €7.50 for 24h and €12 for 48h. The hotel rooms are modern and clean and being serviced about 3 or 4 times a day. Overall an excellent hotel for business and pleasure.
The only thing to watch out for is that if you book a standard room, you will have to pay an extra €15/day/person to use the gym and the pool... which is pretty average anyway :(
Prices of restaurants and room services are very high (but very good quality).
