“Would stay here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We stayed here (our first Movenpick stay) prior to a cruise, and enjoyed it. Recommend if you don't mind walking about 10 mins to Central station--from there you can go anywhere. There is a shuttle, but most people walk. Food was great, rooms clean and sleek, our room had a really nice view. We saw a mix of other cruisers, families, business travelers. Bar and restaurants were great.

Room Tip: ask for a high floor room overlooking water

Great quiet location away from the noisy centre, top quality food, very clean and luxurious rooms, would highly recommend this hotel, but make sure you pre-book the shuttle bus to Central station as it does get fully booked, the area around the hotel is very modern and clean.

Dear Johnsony,
We are happy to read you had such a pleasant stay in our hotel, indeed located just outside the busy city centre, on the quiet banks of the river "IJ", but well connected by all means of transport such as our free shuttlebus.
Your recommendation is much appreciated!
We will be more than pleased to welcome you next time you visit Amsterdam.

Stayed at Movenpick Amsterdam for 4 nights and found it to be a very pleasant hotel. The rooms are very modern and have nice views of the river, canals and the train station. The hotel is about 10 minutes walking to city center so if you want to be right in the middle of everything than this would probably not be the ideal location.

Staff was very friendly and the morning breakfast was quite nice. The internet connection in the hotel are not very fast unless your willing to pay outrageous prices for their speedier connection. The rooms are very small but more than adequate.

My fiance and I stayed here for 5 nights and paid arond 80 GBP a night. The room are well equipped with a fridge, hair dryer, toiletries, kettle, flat screen TV with a good range of channels. The hotel is a short walk from central station and doesn't take long to walk into the centre (however I would check the location before you book because some people dont like walking!). There is a tram outside the hotel although we didn't use it. There is a shuttle bus from the hotel to the train station every 30 minutes that you can book in advance which is handy when you have luggage. However when we booked our room we booked a queen size bed rather than two singles and we requested a room on a high floor. However when we arrived and got into our room we realised we had two single beds with a room that no view. The view didn't bother me as it was just an optional request but being given single beds was disappointing. We rang reception (who failed to tell us this before we went up the room) and they said no rooms available, call tomorrow. We went down to reception the following day and they said again they had no rooms except for one room that is next to an elevator shaft but they said it was very noisy and we were best off where we were so at this point we didn't bother asking again.

Dear SteloTheTypo,
Thank you very much for sharing your extensive feedback with us. First of all we are sorry to hear you had an unpleasant experience with us concerning the twin bed. Although we are more than happy to provide you the requested room, a preference can unfortunately not be guaranteed as it depends on room type availability. In case there are more requests for a king size bed as available, we are unable to fulfill your request.
Besides this, we are pleased to read your otherwise positive remarks regarding your stay.
Thank you again.

We hope to welcome you again in our hotel.

Kind regards,
Daniël Kaan

I stay in this hotel as often as possible, and the quality of everything is just realy high.
Staff is very friendly, and the view from the rooms is fantastic. I can highly recommend this hotel for buisness, and for a nice week end in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, but above 10th floor you have a fantstic view

Very good hotel. It is my second time using movenpick hotels. The staff were incredibly friendly, the hotel even offered a free shoe polish and mobile phone chargers at the lobby. The rooms were spacious and clean with nice decor, the restroom was spotless and and spacious, which made it comfortable. The view from outside my window was great I was on the 9th floor overlooking the canals. The location is fantastic, a minutes walk to the central tram line and there is a subway restrauant nearby. The breakfast at the hotel was fantastic with a wide variety of food. Good stay.

A great place from which to explore Amsterdam. Granted, some people may find it a little far from the centre, but with a shuttle bus and good transport links right outside, it is never far away. Room was spacious and very clean and comfortable with fantastic views. Breakfast was plentiful with a large choice suitable for just about anyone. Very helpful staff in all areas made it a very enjoyable stay. Thank you!
