“Relaxing Stay Just Outside City Centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2010

Stayed for 2 nights over Easter. From the outside the hotel doesn't look like what I'd usually go for (modern high rise block) but inside was well designed and our room which was actually one of the unrenovated rooms was lovely. Breakfast served till midday which is perfect if you want a long lie. Ate in the Japanese restaurant one night and the food was amazing although the atmosphere and service maybe not quite what would have expected from a michelin starred restaurant (no help/explanation of dishes or advice on drinks to go with food, left to pour own wine) although the food did make up for it. Had cocktails in the bar on the 23rd floor which were lovely and the views were stunning. Location not in the centre but tram stop outside the front door means that shouldn't put you off. Really enjoyed stay there

This is an excellent hotel by every standard. Be warned that it is not in the city center of Amsterdam. But, It is a very easy tram trip (the hotel can even sell you the strippenkart for the tram ride). It is also a bit of a hike from the train station. If you fly in, you are better off taking a cab.

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I look forward to staying at more Okura hotels in my future travels.

Very nice hotel with good service. The room was very nice with all the amenities needed. Breakfast was excellent. Location may not be in the very city centre, but that should not stop you from staying in the hotel. Internet is expensive though.

A perfect stay in a beautiful hotel in the middle of amsterdam where you can eat in fine restaurants and drink something in a cocktail bar on the 23 etage looking over the city. The rooms are comfortable and very beautiful...you can't compare them to other hotels
