“Very nice contemporary hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Very welcoming reception, large quiet room view of the garden.
The decor is very contemporary and fun at the same time
The first day my breakfast was 45' late and they apologized a lot and gave it to me free.
Next time I go to Amsterdam I will stay at the Andaz again ..

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the garden, very silent

A wonderful experience with helpful staff. The room, although not enormous, was marvellous with a large walk in shower, dressing table and walk in wardrobe and together with theview of the canal this room did not disappoint in any way.

Room Tip: If you opt for a canal view be prepared for a some noise at the weekends

This is a fine hotel, but it lacks warmth and good customer service.
We booked our room through Jetsetter, so we didn't expect much, and I'm glad about that. Our room overlooked the interior lobby, no exterior view at all. And the "bathroom" was in the middle of the room with zero privacy. When stepping in and out of the shower, you are in plain view of the rest of the room. The hotel is new, and it feels new...it's clean and well-appointed, with a very comfortable bed, and complimentary Nespresso in the room. The location of the hotel is perfect...very central and beautiful...and the lobby bar is great and has a wonderful cocktail menu...but my problem with this hotel was the absolutely horrible customer service.

There is no formal front desk at this hotel, they utilize three open round tables in the lobby, with ipads and laptops. It feels very disorganized and confusing. The "front desk" staff was cold and unwelcoming. When we arrived and finally figured out who among the crowd were the employees, they took our name and checked if the room was ready. But the person helping us couldn't figure this information out with her laptop, so she had to radio to someone else to ask, and then she disappeared. A few minutes later, someone else asked us if we were being helped, and we told her we were. She disappeared. Finally, after being asked by four different people if we were being helped, someone actually stuck around was able to help us. They handed us a room key, and that was it. They didn't ask for ID or passport, and didn't even take a credit card to have on file. Nobody offered to show us to the room. We were just given the room key and sent on our way. We were told that our bags, which had been left at the hotel earlier before check-in, would be waiting in the room. Well, some of them were. One was missing, and we were given a bag that wasn't ours. This was quickly straightened out, though.

And then there was check-out. Another confusing mess in the lobby of too many employees scrambling around, not really knowing what they were doing. A very friendly man offered to help us check out on his ipad, but when he realized that we had an outstanding balance to settle (because they didn't take a credit card at check-in), he told us that he couldn't help us with that, and told us to wait for one of the other employees who could. We ended up waiting 20 additional minutes for someone to help us.
Bottom line is that this hotel really needs to work on their customer service...we felt like unwelcome house guests. We ended up spending our last night in Amsterdam at the Hotel Pulitzer which was less expensive and a million times better.

Very trendy hotel that reflect the Andaz concept
It a nice new stylish hotel

Very nice location on the canal with a nice view from the room that is well equiped

If u r looking for a errorless experience this is your hotel but if u r enjoying the city and only booking a hotel to sleep u will definitly find it expensive

I will definitely stay here again! In my opinion, this is one of the best hotels in Amsterdam!!! This new hotel offers nothing but the best. The staff provides the most friendly service and goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need. They are extremely efficient and are always attentive. I felt quite at home. The food at this hotel is also worth a try. Great atmosphere and high quality meals! This hotel is located right on the beautiful Prinsengracht canal in the Jordaan district. It is close enough to walk to everything but far enough from the crazy crowds. The room was amazing, clean and very comfortable...a good size for a couple. I highly recommend this hotel.

You will not easy to find the hotel as it is not in the main street, hotel main entrance is facing to canal but i feel okay and it is only about 4-5 mins walk to get tram or some shops and resturants. I take taxi from train station to the hotel cost Euro 15, cheaper than what i expected. Overall staff service is good and helful but can be better. Hotel lobby decoration is trendy but bit too small. There is a lounge just next to the lobby, you can stay there for a rest and enjoy some wine during the evening hour and it is free of charge. We've got an upgrade to a conor room on 4/F, size is spacious and with i-pod dock and coffee machine but no view can see from the window. Again, trendy hotel nowadays like to make the toilet and bathroom seperate but it is not good for friends or colleagues stay a room together.

We enjoyed our stay at the Amsterdam Andaz. The service is wonderfully friendly and efficient. The Prinsengracht location is lovely and convenient to Amsterdam’s principal attractions. The design of the public areas and the rooms is fun and edgy, though, as, others have noted, in the case of the bathroom facilities, it’s not always very practical. Free wifi and mini-bar treats were a terrific plus.

Room Tip: Opt for at least a "deluxe" room; even these rooms are quite tiny.
