“A good choice for Amsterdam”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2006

In a city of tiny hotel rooms at large prices, this hotel is a good bet. The rooms are not huge but they are Ok sized and comfortable and the have good sized bathrooms and the rooms have everything you need. This is part of the Raffles group and it is sad that their Asian hotels offer so much more for the same price.... But Swisshotel is a good choice in Amsterdam. The concierge is pleasant but not particularly knowledgeable.

Stayed July 2006

Me and husband and my 2 year old daughter stayed in this very central and friendly hotel.
The rooms are modern and very confortable (I stayed in a superior room). The staff from Reception and Restaurant very friendly.
In case I return to Amsterdam I will certanly stay there again, since it is very central and close to everything.

  • Liked — Location
  • Disliked — Nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — There is no need to pay the extra for breakfast. It is too expensive and there are many cafes nearby

The hotel is good, however i was checked in with 2 hours of delay and they tried to charge me 60 euros of local phone calls that i never made. The staff was quite arrogant. I would think twice before booking there again. I had just came from Le Yaca St Tropez which was a very good hotel and great staff.

Can't praise this hotel enough. Easily the best i have stayed in for its price. Classed on here as 3 Star although i would give it somewhere between a 4 and 5.
The location is excellent. Almost opposite the Royal palace and 3 minute walk from the red light district.
Top Marks!

This was the third time i have visited Amsterdam and surely the best!! The hotel location is excellent, everything is within walking distance from the hotel, boats, museums, shopping centre, the Red Light District etc. The stuff was extremelly polite and helpfull. The room was very clean and the view over Dam Square was fantastic. Although i have read many reviews about the noise from Dam Square i was never really bothered. If you have the windows from your room open there is some noise but not something terrible. I stayed with my brother in room 515 (Junior Suite) and it was amazing. Next time in Amsterdam i will surely stay again in Swissotel. I heartly recomment this hotel to everyone who wishes to have a pleasent stay in Amsterdam.

My husband and I stayed here from 6/28-7/8 and had a lovely time. The hotel is in a great location, tram is right out front and it was very quiet. The best thing is that they are one of the few hotels in Amsterdam to have air conditioning. It was in the mid 80's and we met other travelers who had uncomfortable nights in other hotels due to the heat. We paid around $200 for the room through Expedia. The staff is very friendly and helpful especially Luigi and Maudy

I was pleased to find that the poor reviews of this hotel were not true. We had a lovely superior room in a quite location at the back of the hotel (still a good veiw of the church from the window), The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good with plenty of choice.

Given the location of the hotel in the central area the cost was realistic.

I would not hesitate to reccomend the hotel if you want to be close to the main sights and the central station (you can walk to the hotel).

The coffee maker is a very big bonus!
