“Quality Hotel, Central Enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

This hotel is aimed at business and cruise ship travellers but those going to Amsterdam wanting to stay in premium accommodation that will not cost the earth should definitely consider the Movenpick. It's about a 12-15 minute walk from Central Station, comprises good sized, modern and clean rooms. There's leisure facilities (can't comment, didn't use them), a trendy bar downstairs and a room terrace with a view over the harbour. Additionally there’s a shuttle service that runs out to Central Station every 30 minutes and regular trams from the main road about 5 minutes from the hotel entrance. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout our weekend stay.

Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor, views are great.

stayed there for 5 nights..what can i say..!
the location is more than excellent, very close to the downtown and central station..within 3 minutes walk, also a free shuttle bus to the train and metro station is every half an hour.
free internet, free parking, comfortable room and bed, not big size room,but enough.
the breakfast was excellent, with amazing view on the cruise terminal and the canal.
it's 500 meters from the center of the downtown, which makes it quite and comfortable and at the same time u r close to every thing.

the staff were amazing and very helpful


will definitely stay here again.

Beautifull hotel, with a great location. By public transport (or free hotel shuttle) you are in a couple of minutes in the centre. The hotel is very design and stylish. Great restaurant, excellent food and awesome view. If you book and pre-pay in advance you can get excellent deals. Great hotel to stay with family and friends or for business.

We liked this hotel, rooms were clean and smart and we had a great view from our room on floor 14 overlooking the canal and the ships coming and going.

It was a bit far from the town centre (about 1.5km) but there was a tram stop right outside which we used with a travel card we had purchased. Conveniently they also sell these in the lobby shop.

There was a minibar fridge in the room which was left empty for our use and the hotel runs a shuttle to the central station which is probably a 10-15 min walk.

Overall i would stay there again.

Hmmm after reading all the glowing TA reviews I was expecting a little more from this hotel. Had I booked at full price this review may have been more negative but we received a heavily discounted rate via the web and for what we paid the hotel was more than sufficient. That said, the lobby is somewhat austere, the desk staff standoffish , the bed linen rough, the room TV outdated, distorted & unwatchable and 90 minutes is way too long to wait for a room service pizza, even if it comes with an apology . .

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your negative experience in our hotel. Your feedback has been forwarded to the management of the related departments, it certainly helps us to remain alert on some service points.

One little silver lining is that we are replacing all of our TV's for the latest flat-screen HD tv's manufactured by our neighbours, this by November 2011. It will include an even larger selection of channels.

Please do not hesitate to contact me personally before your next visit to our hotel so that I can do my utmost to ensure we provide you the service and special care that you expect.

Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back soon,

Kind regards,

The Hotel Manager

The Movenpick is a modern, mid-to-high end hotel. A high-rise on the banks of a major canal it offers terrific views in all directions. Situated 10-minutes walk time away from Amsterdam's central train station, and near local tram lines, its location still appears a bit removed from the bustling streets of the city. I felt that was an advantage, especially if you are in town for business. Thanks to a walkway under a nearby bridge you are still connected to the city, though, if you are willing to walk. Rooms are not big but well appointed. The king bed consisted of tow single mattresses inside a frame. A bit lame but not a major fault.
The only negative recommendation I can give is to avoid the hotel's expensive breakfast. The food was just not good across the board. From leather-grade bacon to plastic-dry cheeses, nothing was really good.
Nonetheless, I loved the hotel and would love to return.

This hotel really produced an impression on us.
We stayed there for 5 days and everything was fantastic. Perfect service, polite and very attentive staff, great food and awesome views of Amsterdam.
We lived in the executive suite and were greatly surprised by the price (it was really low). The staff were very helpful and helped us solve any problems in no time.
The food is worth mentioning as it was delicious and we enjoyed it every morning.
No transport problem! There is a shuttle fromthe hotel and a tram that stops right in front of the hotel. We came to Amsterdam in winter and were ready to meet any problems connected with transport but there were none.
We loved Amsterdam and Movenpick hotel has been an example of service since then.
