“Standard hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Nothing special for a 4 stars hotel. 3 stars is the corect level.very small rooms and hyper expensive for what it gives. It is a 70 ' s hotel . Some rooms are refurbished but the note remains the same. A good advantage is that is situated in the center of the town. ....in a a crowded region. Amsterdam for me was boring and old fashioned.... Except the argentinian restaurants which are good. But all the rest is really boring having into consideration that i am not consuming herbs.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Spacious rooms in the most ideal location. Located right in Dam square, a short walk from everything. Can be a little noisy due to the central location. Cleaning was not quite to my standards, but the pillow menu was creative and ensured a good sleep. Had issues with a window that was locked open (important it could be closed with all the noise from below), the night manager was pretty useless-showed interest but didnt pass messages onto day staff or follow up. However the day staff were far superior-they worked relentlessly to get it sorted. Room sizes were gennerous.

Would fully recommend. With a city break, location is everything!!!

Room Tip: Higher floor to avoid noise

It is great to be in Amsterdam, and staying in Swissotel makes your experience particularly refreshing. You will enjoy the location! You are in the middle of everything and it takes a short walk to reach most attractions.

Bang in the centre of Amsterdam, walking distance from Madame Tussaud's, the Royal Palace and the train station, amongst others. Comfortable and cosy rooms, great staff, and free internet all contributed to a positive experience. I would gladly recommend this.

Very good location, kind and helpful receptionists. excellent housekeeping, they bring to you rapidly what you need. There is a pillow menu on the bed and you could choose the pillow which you desire. The only negative point is that this hotel is a little bit noisy but the noise is not disturbing, this noise comes from street and if you need calm room and would like be relaxed ask them to give you rooms in up floors or the rooms that their windows open to backyard.

Recenctly stayed at the Swissote Amsterdam and loved its location and incredibly friendly staff.
The location of this hotel is prime, Across from the Dam square and the Grand Palace. Walking distance to the red light district, central station and canals!
Great service comfortable beds and knowledgeable staff!
You won't be dissappointed!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a corner room top floor you'll get the best view from every angle. Well worth it!

I stayed for a weekend in mid-March. I arrived on the train and had a very easy walk from the station with my luggage. The front desk staff was very polite and efficient. They offered a quiet room in the back without me even having to ask. The room itself was small but adequate. It was cleaned well and had what I needed. I had my laundry done there from the first week of my stay and was pleased that it was done well and returned to me when it was promised. The location of the hotel is right off of Dam Square and it is convenient to get to anywhere else in the city. I would stay there again.
