“Modern clean hotel, no smoking policy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Moevenpick Amsterdam is located out of the main tourist district of Amsterdam- by tram (no 26), it's about 5 minutes away from the Central station or about a 1km walk.The area around the hotel is quiet- the views of amsterdam is breathtaking.

The hotel advertises itself as a 4 star hotel and it's a good 4 star- the rooms are spacious for european standards and well-insulated to external sounds- the beds comfortable- the room has a nice couch and a very big bathroom with a nice shower powerful shower and good hair-dryer. Coffee-tea amenities provided.

The best thing about this hotel is their strict 'no-smoking' policy hotel-wide and in Amsterdam, it's a good thing as the last hotel i stayed at, the second hand marijuana smoke from the adjoining rooms seeped into my bathroom/room.

Only downside is the check-in and check-out process was a bit slow due to the amount of people coming in and out. The staff however, are friendly and nice.

Will not hesitate to recommend this hotel- despite the distance to the city centre and other tourist attractions, Amsterdam is a small city and easily walkable and the trams system is very efficient and connects well throughout. A great stay!

Arrived on Wed 15th Feb in the morning at 10.30am. I think because they were quiet, we were able to check-in right away - which was fantastic! We were able to change and get into our winter clothes as it was freezing in Amsterdam........colder than Manchester!

Got checked in by Chris on reception - he was very professional & presentable (you would never guess he had been a mechanic in his former life!!).

During our stay we would take the complementary shuttle to Centraal Station in the morning when embarking on our daily tours, and then walk back in the evening to the hotel. The walk from Centraal to the hotel is about 15mins and from the city (Damrak) again 15 mins.

Breakfast was included in the price and this was exceptional!! The wife loved the variety - hot/cold. Fryed eggs/scrambled/omlets on demand. Service and variety was excellent.

On my next trip I was considering going to the Mint/Hilton hotel which is between Centraal and Movenpick hotel - but I think I would rather go to this hotel again.

Thanks again to Chris on reception (and to the irish chap who drove us daily to the station).

Just remember that you require to leave a daily deposit of 50 euros whilst staying at the hotel. We stayed for 4 nights so we deposited 200 euros which we got back fully on checking out on Sun 19th Feb. You can also pick up a free city map from reception which is very helpfull.

Room Tip: We were on the 16th floor (room 1604) - on the side facing the Bimhuis - excellent views of the city...

The hotel has an excellent location, just one stop by tram (No. 26) of Centraal Station. You can also walk to the hotel (about 800m).

For me it was the best hotel I've ever been, because in everything there is a note "touch" of quality.

The rooms are excellent as well as the views of the city.
The breakfast is very good, with plenty of choice and to my surprise, with "kitchen" live, as seen in the resorts of the Caribbean!
The service is personalized. Even the LCD of the room had a welcome message!

The only con is that the area around the hotel, it has little or nothing to enjoy. However, in just 10 minutes we are in the city center.

In short, in Amsterdam to find a hotel like this for only 99 € with breakfast included, was a find!

The hotel is near the central train station and a 20 min walk to the city center or 10 min by bike taxi (which is faster then a taxi). The upper floors have an amazing view over the city or the waterside. There is absolutly no noise on any floor.

Room Tip: even room numbers

We spent in Moevenpick 2 nights. Hotel is well situated -10 minutes walking distance from the Train Station, or one stop by tram (tram stop is just in front of the hotel, trams are going often), in a harbour - with a beautiful view! By check-in we asked if we can change room for one on a higher floor (originally we've got on the 2nd floor) - it was not a problem, we've got one on 16th floor. Receptionist "warned us" thats it's a room next to the lift (implying it might disturb us), but we didnt hear anything and it was worth changing for the view! Anyway, Amsterdam offers so much that we only slept there. Staff was nice and friendly, rooms spacious and clean, bathoorm as well - big and clean, tv with most of the international chanels.
Restaurant and bar deserve also a good word. We had drinks in a bar (nice staff, nice ambient), before that we made a reservation for a dinner in the restaurant and asked for a table by the window. When we came all the tables for 2 were taken, but weve still got one next to the window for 4 - nice gesture:-) Food was amazing!
Overall, happy with a choice. I recommend.

Room Tip: Higher floors rooms have beautiful view. Rooms next to the lift are not really noisy.

The hotel has much to offer and is well located. the room was spacious, nice bathroom and an amazing view.
Staff was ok, although I was a bit shocked that the employee at the check in could not speak Dutch....
Meetingrooms were very good. Food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) were amazing. we were a very big group, so thumbs up to make it so delicious.

This hotel was really great. We were given a room upgrade for no apparent reason - yeah! Walked in to our room and were instantly captivated by the view of the harbor and city.
Room was large - bathroom was huge by European standards. (Large enough to do some laundry and have it all dry by the next morning on the heated racks). Ate in the restaurant - didn't have a reservation which seemed the host did not like, but were seated quickly. Food was very good and service quick and efficient
Breakfast was incredible - many choices, quality food, beautiful view. Most days we just had breakfast in the hotel and paid for one other meal for the whole day. The canal boats dock just across from the hotel - buy a one or two day pass and travel in style. About seven minute walk to the main train station to catch buses and trains to everywhere. This was the nicest hotel we've found yet in Europe!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the train station - I believe it's the west side.
