“beer experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I recently travelled on business to Amsterdam.
I had selected the Hotel Okura based on previous reviews on TripAdvisor.
The hotel is fairly well located within a short 10 minute taxi ride to the centre of town.
The greeting was very warm and very professional from the moment I stepped out of the taxi until my bags arrived in the room.
Rooms are well appointed with Aircon, a decent bathroom with rain shower and a deep bath.
A very comfortable bed with a pillow menu, turn down service etc.
The concierge was more than helpful to get transport at any given opportunity.
The breaksfasts were excellent and very diverse. Staff, too, were very polite.
This hotel does especially accommodate Japanese/Asian business customers.
Check out was painless, too, with all the correct information on the bill. Sadly this is not the case for 75% hotels I stay in but very important when it comes to submitted a company expense – where all information being correct is a must. Pleased to see this is focused on so it does not start my day off on the wrong footing and leaves a positive experience in my mind.
I’d certainly recommend this hotel…

After trying several other 4* NH hotels in Amsterdam and being unimpressed, I decided to try a 5* and it made all the difference! The welcome was personable, we were upgraded to a junior suite, the room was beautiful with a great view and the spa and pool were relaxing and perfect. I have found my new hotel in Amsterdam!

I am disappointed this time for a few reasons:

1. First of all they sold me a much smaller room at a much higher price. In December I had stayed on the executive floor and I paid much less, now I stayed ina a very small room and I paid more.

2. The hotel did not let me know that there was going to be special arrangements for the Nuclear Summit meeting of the presidents and I did not feel comfortable.

3. I found out that the bathrooms facilities that I found on the executive floor are not available in other rooms (such as bide)

Dear Utku67,

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Hotel Okura Amsterdam. Your recent stay was indeed during the NSS conference and due to this situation some additional security measurements were taken and we were unable to offer you the higher room category. Since we would appreciate to have a conversation with you about your experiences and since we truly hope that you will return to the Okura in the future, we hope that you will contact us so. Can you please send your contact details to feedback@okura.nl?

Everything about this hotel is fantastic. I wish I could stay at the Okura every time I visit but my budget doesn't always permit! The restaurant is so fantastic - you almost aren't temped to try any of the restaurants in the city! I recommend it if you can.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Okura for a business trip with a conference held there. The hotel has great meeting rooms and it was extremely convenient. My hotel room was fairly spacious and modern. It was comfortable and clean, with maid service coming in twice a day. The hotel staff was extremely helpful throughout my stay. The buffet breakfast had an excellent assortment of options and the food was very good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Amsterdam on business but it's not great for tourists as it is a bit outside the city centre.

My brother invited us for diner in the private dining room on the 23rd floor to celebrate his birthday.
All four courses were prepared with great care. The combinations of ingredients (which were of very good quality) were very well chosen, therefore the flavors were great. All courses were quite original as well, both the taste of the food and the way it was presented.
The children were invited into the kitchen to prepare their own dessert.
The service was excellent.
And all this with a view you don't see every day.
An evening to remember :)

For those doing business at the RAI, this is the ideal hotel to combine comfort, elegance and service with great convenience. The RAI is a 10 minute walk but once you return from a long work day, nothing can be better than to enter the charms of this hotel.
