“Amazing hotel in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

We stayed for just a few nights but the hotel was very nice. The room was very modern and beautiful, with an awesome view of the canal. The staff and front desk were very helpful and accommodating, and service was impeccable. The only thing worth noting is the hotel isn't in the hustle and bustle of downtown Amsterdam, it's a bit on the outskirt. We decided to walk into town and after an entire day on our feet we cabbed it back to Okura, if you're looking for a quiet luxurious hotel this is the one for you.

From the minute we checked in until the minute we checked out, everything was perfect. The staff were very helpful with advice on where to go and what to see while we were there. Close to the RAI. Easy to get to tram. Rooms were well appointed.

Wonderful Hotel, everything was first class, Room, restaurant, staff, modern and clean and very impressive. Views over the canal and bike and walking tracks right there. Loved it. A great introduction to our European Holiday of a lifetime.

All in the hotel is wonderful. The location could be a little far of downtown. The top floor restaurant is very good altough it is "nouvelle cuisine". In a few words a "Great hotel hotel in Amsterdam"(Holland)

It is really more than a pleasure having lunch or dinner in the Amsterdam Okura. Prices are on quite a high level, but so is the quality and the service, If you like to spend some money, and enjoy a realy good meal, lunch, and or dinner we can recommend the Okura highly.

Great hotel, was a bit of a walk to the city centre, bike hire came in at 20 euro a day and they no longer do a river taxi from the hotel. During my visit it was their holiday period so some of the facilities were not on offer including all the shops, one restaurant on the top floor and the lobby bar as well as some spa facilities which were being refurbished. The main restaurant was too expensive for us and the French one was expensive but well worth it! Despite all of these things it was still an amazing stay just make sure you have 1,000 euros plus if you intend to eat there the whole stay.

Recently visited this great hotel on a business trip. As the name suggests, Hotel Okura is a Japanese hotel and therefore the food (not so much the decor) has a Japanese theme, which is no bad thing!
As we were at a conference, most meals were buffet style, and I have to say the food was delicious. Lots of different types and styles of fish, meats, salads and some pasta dishes for those who need carbs. The desserts were really good, although did require some strenuous after conference activity to prevent some unwanted weight gain.
Rooms were nice and clean, with a Nespresso coffee machine for a caffeine kick. Some annoying things, use of the swimming pool and gym costs extra which is an annoyance. Paying for the spa I can understand, but for the gym and pool? Other than that small gripe, it is a super hotel.

Room Tip: The hotel is 23 floors high with commanding views over the city. Try to get a room as high up as p...
