“An Excellent Hotel in Amsterdam.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We stayed at the Okura for four nights and what a delightful experience. The staff were very helpful and very professional. The concierge recommended several very good restaurants where we could sample Dutch, Indonesian and Surinamese cuisines in Amsterdam.
Our room and the rest of the hotel was spotless and furnished to the highest standards. It had a De Longhi coffee machine which made an excellent cup of coffee. It is worth visiting the reception lounge just to see the beautiful flower arrangements. There was a nice view from our bedroom overlooking the canal.
The Twenty Third bar, on the floor of the same name, is worth a visit for the view and offers a wide range of cocktails and other drinks.
There is a good shuttle service from Schiphol Airport to the hotel.
Although a little out of the city centre, there is an excellent tram service into the centre of town. It is worth buying a day ticket for the trams and you can purchase these from the concierge.
This is an excellent hotel and we will be staying here again when we visit Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Get a room over looking the canal.

Although a little out of the city centre this was a lovely high quality hotel.
We were upgraded to a junior suite and it was fantastic with automatic curtains and a footprint as big as our house.
The staff were helpful and professional. The hotel was spotless and really clean. No faults to tell you of.

Room Tip: Get a tram day card to get around the city. A taxi to the airport is €35 from the hotel but a 10 mi...

I really loved my stay here and would gladly come back, I felt safe and was happy about the comfortable room and I how ever LOVED the glass wall to the bathroom.

The service and security is very good, the lobby toilets is top notch to be just lobby toilets ;)

Location a bit off but just a few steps to the collective trafic wich is very easy and fast to get around with if you have a 24 or 73 prepaid card :)

The check in was the best that I have ever experienced. We have been to a lot of hotels and the service at hotel okura was beyond my expectations.
They were courteous polite and anticipate all your needs. The room was clean and comfortable.The hotel even has a pillow concierge. Their restaurant Serre was also excellent.
There was a lot of street repair going on so the tram stops were confusing.

This hotel was the necessary tonic after a long transcontinental flight. It is located just outside the center of Amsterdam but it is still an easy walk or tram ride to the main attractions. Although this is a business style hotel, it has all the amenities and is fairly luxurious. The rooms are well appointed and large by European standards. The bed was very comfortable. On site there are two Michelin starred restaurants that deserve their rating. A spa is also available. If one doesn't mind giving up a little culture for a little more room, comfort, and luxury, then I would highly recommend this hotel.

Having stayed at the Hotel Okura in Tokyo, when I had to go to Amsterdam on business I decided to see if their Amsterdam hotel lived up to their high standards. I was not disapointed. Although, the hotel is not in the centre, I actually prefer this. The area is tranquil, somewhat residential and away from the frantic pace of parts of the city. Service was discreet, professional and made the stay stress free. As I love Japanese food, the restaurant within the hotel was an obvious choice - expensive, but the food was fresh and beautifully presented. Whilst, a stay at the Okura is not typically Dutch, I enjoy the security of knowing I can trust a hotel of this calibre.

I booked this hotel through Hotwire and having never heard of it or the brand I went to the website to find out more. I was pleasantly surprised to see it was one of the "Leading Hotels of the World" and was looking forward to something special - that's been my experience of other hotels in this club. The hotel is about 5 miles out of the city centre in the suburbs. On the upside the area is quiet; on the downside there is very little to do in the vicinity. Check in was great - I was given a choice of rooms and selected on on the 16th floor on the corner with dual aspect views. The view are to die for - you soon realise you are in one of the tallest buildings in Amsterdam. The room itself was very 4 star - no comfy sofa just a chair with a worn cushion. The furniture was a bit scratched and there were long black hairs on the bathroom floor. The rain shower was a great idea but it was more a drizzle shower as the water pressure was so low. The wi-fi was really erratic and you kept having to re-establish the connection. The bed was really really comfy tho.

Check-out was a nightmare - taking 20 minutes with people jumping the queues and not a single apology from the receptionist. Felt like a commodity rather than a customer. The whole experience lacked the wow factor - which is a complete let down given the way the hotel "sells" itself as somewhere very special to stay.
