“Excellent Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We stayed there for 4 days as it was a member of leading hotels of the world. We were extremely comfortable. Rooms were well maintained. Good courteous staff. Very helpful concierge. Try and book the TASTE of OKURA cooking class. It was very well conducted. Comes with a meal and loads of wine. Cycles were available for hire. Very well maintained ones to that. Good hearty breakfast. THeir bar was very buzzing and happening. Good restaurants.

I stayed in the Hotel Okura in the middle of May for a 4 day trip to Amsterdam with my boyfriend.

The free wifi was much enjoyed and everything was great in the room, we had everything we needed.

I was disappointed that we had to pay to use the gym facility, this should be included with the stay.

We rented bikes from the hotel which were great! Really safe and at a great price, I'd really recommend doing it!

The hotel is in a good location, we thought we'd have to get the tram loads but we ended up walking to the centre most days! (Takes about 20-30 minutes depending on where your going just watch out for the bikes!)

There's loads of great restaurants and cafés nearby the hotel, I recommend Omeleg highly! Amazing food and service. There's also a fantastic market nearby.

We had a great stay but I think we'll try a visit a tad more close to the centre next time.

We arrived at this hotel late friday evening. We were greeted by a lovely man who provided lots of information on how to enjoy our trip to Amsterdam as well as a map for us to look over. On getting in the lifts we were blown away. The style of the hotel is incredibly high class. Our room was amazing. The bathroom the best ive seen in a hotel ever. We were worried about the "Glass" issue but were pleasantly surprised when we pushed a button and a blind came down covering the glass area so you could have some privacy while you were bathing if you wanted. The room service was quick and incredibly tasty except for the bread rolls which we had to leave as they were hard like bricks. Apart from that we had a fantastic time.

From the first moment you arrive till the moment you leave you know that you are in a first class hotel.
The reception gives you a very relax feeling, the staff working in this hotel are really good trained.
The room we stay in was excellent.
The bar on the top is very good with a great view over Amsterdam.
For our next stay we will come back.

I had a delightful stay at Okura. Naively, I was unaware the it was a Japanese hotel, not that it mattered at all (except that there was a very good Japanese restaurant on property!). The service as top notch and I'm surprised to read some of the reviews stating that it was not a property that catered to business people. I did not find that to be the case at. I used the Executive Lounge and the staff was most helpful, as was the concierge in arranging transportation, reservations and other needs. Nonetheless, I think the Okura also would be a wonderful place to stay with family. One note though: while close to RAI and the airport (without hearing planes overhead), it was not a quick walk to the city center. However, it was just a 10 minute cab ride to the center, so certainly not a real drawback. Finally, more about the restaurants; in addition to the Japanese one noted above I had a fantastic lunch at Serre (see separate review)

I have just returned from a two night stay at the Okura and I cannot praise it enough. I was travelling alone but was given a really nice corner room on the ninth floor with a panoramic view of Amsterdam. The room and bathroom were spotless and cleaned twice a day, it had a well stocked mini bar and some snacks and enough desk space for me to work if i needed to.
The staff were very friendly, helpful and professional and when I had a problem with the coffee maker in my room it was attended to immediately.
They stored my bag after checkout leaving me free to explore the city more before I left and I spent a relaxing hour and half in lobby bar whilst awaiting to leave for my flight....the food is also quite delicious.
I have seen previous comments about the hotel been too far out of the main city but frankly I didn't find this a problem at all. It is in a quiet little spot with some nice bars and restaurants nearby and it is a short tram ride to the centre of the city.
All in all it was worth every penny and I would stay there again and also recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: Didnt use the spa so unable to comment
