“Home away from home for two weeks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Fletcher Hotel Amsterdam was my home away from home for two weeks while traveling on business. The room was spacious for myself; it would be very nice if traveling with wife or girlfriend. The shower in the middle of the room as others have stated does not have privacy. Also the toilet is in a corner closet; watch out because the door can swing shut if you don't open it all the way- not a problem, just a unique modern design.

The food was fantastic, although patience is key when dining there especially if it is busy. The Hotel Sky Bar/Restaurant is a popular place for fine dining by people around the area as well as hotel guests. I have celiac's disease which is an allergy to wheat; a shift manager at the hotel also has celiac and was able to instruct the kitchen staff and they were able to provide me with warm GF bread and they would check all of the ingredients in whatever I ordered to make sure it wouldn't make me sick.

I was made to feel welcomed by all of the staff that I interacted with daily. They also didn't seem to mind that I don't speak a word of Dutch.

My stay was in January. The only complaint that I had which I brought to the front desk was that the room never got above 20.4C (68F) which isn't too cold, but I had the thermostat set to 22C because the first few days I was there I had a chest cold. The key must be in the card slot in the wall for the heater and lights to work, so if you spend a lot of time out of the room it takes a while to heat up. Even so, the room never got to 21C. I just put on warm clothes when I felt chilly.

I had rented a car while I was there (being from Detroit the whole train thing didn't really work out for me, but that's another story altogether). The parking is extra but there was plenty of it even at the busy dining times.

The location is in Zuidoost, which I found out means 'Southeast' in Dutch. It is pretty far from the city center, but that's fine with me because the Centrum is pretty crazy. Nice place to visit, but I like staying down in the Zuidoost area because it gave me easy access to the expressways as I had to drive to Germany for a couple of days.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay a lot at the Hotel Fletcher Amsterdam. Several of the staff members were extremely friendly and remembered my name and dietary issues. I will certainly stay there again, hopefully with my wife next time, and on vacation instead of business.

We only stayed one night for the Michael Buble concert. Booked diner, shuttle service and breakfast. The room was excellent with good beds.
The concert diner was not fabulous but sufficient. It looks a bit under staffed in the lounge and the restaurant as they can have a much bigger turn over, especially in the bar.
The shuttle service was a bit of a disaster as too many people booked but this was solved getting taxis at no extra costs. The pick up after the concert did not go well either but a phone call to the hotel took care of that too. Just take a taxi and give the receipt to the reception and it was fully reimbursed.
The best breakfast in Amsterdam might be a bit exaggerating but still choice enough.

Room Tip: Very good place to stay if you attend an event around the Arena and Ziggo Dome

Business stay. Very friendly and welcoming reception staff. Was made to feel valued, thank you. Room very modern, stylish with lovely bed and bed linens. Quirky shower in the middle of the room, not in a bathroom. Wouldn't stay here and share the room with friends or relatives as absolutely no privacy when showering.

Great views, lovely breakfasts. Guests tended to be business people.

Would stay again for business, but not if I was visiting Amsterdam as a tourist as it's too far out of the centre.

Stayed December 2013

Stayed at the Fletcher hotel on a business trip. The rooms are very nice an have good beds. The restaurant is also good. What is disappointing is that they made mistakes on our bill when checking out adding shuttle rides which we did not take. Although the breakfast is good it's a pity that there isn't that much fruit.

Room Tip: If you can, get a room on a higher level to avoid traffic noise since the motorway is close by.

Friendly staff, great rooms, very comfortable bed, good choice of TV channels. Not in the best location by any means (perfect for where my office is though) so be careful not to think you are near a train station (2km or so) or central Amsterdam.
I had hoped that the shower in the middle of the room would steam up or something when you are in there - no such luck.
Love the shower scrub!
For now, good value for monez but as and when the area gets more up and coming, price will rise.

Room Tip: Get a high room for a better view!

The circular rooms are unusual and fun, the shower in the middle of the bedroom was a new experience! Outstanding views in a lactic convenient to the airport, town centre and the outskirts of Amsterdam too. Friendly, welcoming staff and a spectacular restaurant ensured it was a great stay for me (very reasonably priced too)
