“Seriously high quality hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights recently, on a very rare break away from children. I managed to spot a last-minute deal, otherwise it would have been completely out of our price range.
I've stayed in many 5 star hotels over the years and feel few really are particularly deserving of those stars but this hotel is. Excellent staff, not too stuffy. Room amenities were great - comfiest bed and pillow ever :-) and very quiet. BTW, don't panic about the glass-walled bathroom (I did a little when I saw the pictures). There's a blind that comes down.

We were very lucky because our room was upgraded to a junior suite to give us a better view.

It's true that it is a bit further out the city centre than I had quite anticipated. I thought we wouldn't mind the walk but it was a bit far and the two trams was a bit of a faff. But, it's in a lovely residential area (has a 'west end' type feel) with plenty of cafes & restaurants nearby. As a result we didn't dine in the hotel at all (and partly because the top class restaurants get booked up by locals on weekends). We did have a cocktail in the bar on the 23rd floor which has to be done I think!

The only thing I would say was a disappointment was the 'spa'. Personally I don't think a pool with treatment rooms qualifies as a spa. The pool area was being renovated so only one tiny sauna was available (in the ladies room). Other than that, it's an average hotel pool with a jacuzzi. We paid, I think, 15 Euros each to access, which given the basic facilities is pretty poor. (I'm happy to pay to access other hotel spas where there are a variety of thermal experiences but not just to access the pool and a hot tub).

That aside, it's a great hotel that I would highly recommend.

While Hotel Okura Amsterdam is located a little further out from most tourist attractions, it is a welcomed retreat from the rest of the city. The Okura name is known for excellence, and this hotel branch is no exception. The rooms were spacious, and welcoming-- it was fun to return to our room only to have the curtains open automatically upon our arrival. Everything about our stay was perfect, I couldn't have asked for anything better. After staying at multiple Okura hotels worldwide, I will continue to show loyalty to this brand!

We celebrated a perfect wellness weekend in hotel Okura in Amsterdam. Every time we return to this hotel it realizes to surprise us in a positive manner. As experience and spoiled travelers we have high requirements, but the Amsterdam Okura is always able to meet these. This time we decided to make full use of the Nagoma Spa within the Okura. Excellent treatments, full use of sauna's, swimming pool (17 meters inside) and tranquility and serenity. Furthermore we enjoyed a marvelous, original Japanese, lunch in the Yamazato restaurant (1 michelinstar). We were not able to visit Ciel Blue (2 star Michelin restaurant) on top of the hotel, due to the holidays. But we know from prior sessions this is perfect too.

We visited the 23rd cocktail bar - on the 23rd floor of the hotel and had our room on floor 17. Don't forget that Amsterdam does not have many high buildings so the views from the hotel are astonishing!

No wonder that during the abdication of our queen and inauguration of our king most of the royals staid in the Okura, Amsterdam and during the nuclear top in The Hague, important delegates from several countries staid here as well.

In short: Impressive, high quality, great service, perfect food. Absolutely the best hotel in Amsterdam and most possibly in the Netherlands!!

Room Tip: Try the highest (executive) floors in the hotel, it's worth the extra investment!

This place is a good 15 or 29 min walk out of downtown(touristy area), but was available, affordable, and service was great. You can rent bicycles for 5 euros per day, and it's no problem. The rooms were very nice. Thank you.

The Okura Hotel in Amsterdam is one of the better to stay in, I would think. The quality of the rooms and the service is excellent. The rooms are quiet, spacious and very high tech. The beds, linen and pillows are very good, the bathrooms clean and well organized.
We have stayed here twice now, with a family of 6. What they do is give you a junior suite in one of the corners and an adjacent room and then they close the doors in the corridor in front of the two rooms to create a hallway. You can then leave the hotel rooms open permanently creating a real home experience. The extra beds for the kids are also very good. Apart from the top class restaurants in the hotel, the breakfast is something worth mentioning. You just should not miss it, as it is taken care of to the detail.
Staff is very friendly and service minded. Of all the hotels I have stayed in, I would rank this one in the top three of professionalism. At Okura they really understand how to make the hotel experience unforgettable.

We have just returned from a 4 night break in the Okura. The reception & concierge staff are so kind & helpful. We signed up for free membership which entitled us to use the gym & swimming pool which added to our enjoyment. Very comfortable, clean, spacious rooms, with great views. The beds are extremely comfortable and the pillows are the best I've found in a hotel. These things are very important to those of us who suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Although the hotel is a bit out of Amsterdam, we found this to be a benefit, as the area is so quiet and up-market. It's only a 10 to 15 minute walk to Amsterdam Rai train station which takes you directly to Schiphol airport. Of course you can take trams to many parts of Amsterdam - a 48hr pass only costs €12. The trains in Holland are amazingly frequent & punctual. If you are looking to travel quite a bit by train, check out the local supermarkets. Albert Hijn supermarket is just a few hundred yards away from Okura & they had a deal on last week €17 for a day pass on the trains in Holland. You would need to check the small print, and I didn't check to see how much you need to spend! We bought food in Albert Hijn's for breakfast & lunch & we ate out in the lovely restaurants on our doorstep. Great Chinese and Thai you can easily walk to. It was lovely walking around the local area around the hotel and there is a good market nearby. The receptionist will give you a map which shows where all the local markets are. When we return to Amsterdam we will return to Okura. Well done & many thanks to the Okura staff for giving our 6 family members such wonderful hospitality!
