For work or pleasure, my wife and I have visited many cities in Europe, and Hotel Amstelzicht is one of the nicest city-center hotels we have stayed in.
After deciding to book a double room with canal view, the process with Amstelzicht was very pleasant. A confirmation email was sent by the hotel, and when I replied asking to verify the canal view and inquire about early check-in, the response was courteous and quick.
My flight landed at 7:05 in the morning at Schiphol, and I made it to the Amstelzicht around 9:00am. The young man on duty (Roy?) was very friendly and helpful - he could see I was a little tired after my flight, and was able to let me check in at noon rather than wait until 2:00pm. He also took my suitcase to store it for me, gave me a map of the city, and helped me figure out the city's tram system. I walked the city for a few hours (including a couple of stops for coffee!), and returned at noon to find my room ready with my suitcase already inside - much appreciated given the steep staircase.
The room was very clean, with a small entryway and very tall ceilings. Unlike many city hotel rooms, there was enough space for my wife and I to move around together. Two upholstered chairs with a small table, a desk and chair, and coffee machine were in the room along with a wardrobe for storage in the entryway. The bathroom was also very clean and the water pressure good, although there was not much shelf/counter space. Oh well - a small detail when we saw the wall of windows that looked out upon the canal. The promised canal view really is amazing - definitely book one of the canal view rooms.
