“Moevenpick Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

The beds were amazing, continental breakfast over the top and the location was convenient to either the city or the canal cruises. We were on a Viking Cruise and they had set up a table in the hotel. The hotel seemed to be very accommodating for the cruise people and the itinerary that was involved. We came in early in the morning and the hotel held our luggage until the room was available. We were able to check in early and catch up on our sleep. We left our bags again on the day the cruise left and toured the city for the day. When we came back to get our carry on luggage, our bags had already been delivered to the ship.

Room Tip: If in Amsterdam for more than a day, buy a multiple day pass for the light rail

We only stayed for one night and had a lovely experience. The staff were brilliant - giving us a room on the 18th floor with an unbeatable view over Amsterdam and bringing bottles of water to our room for free at 1 am when the vending machines were sold out. Room was spacious, modern and clean. My only complaint would be the location - the hotel does run a shuttle to the station but it gets full so best to prebook.

Dear aulusgellius,

Thank you for taking the time to share your positive experience in our hotel. I have read your comments with regards to the location of the hotel. Indeed we are located in the Eastern Docklands, a 10 minute walk from Central Station. We are sorry to hear you were not able to make use of our complimentary shuttle service. We do also have a tram stop in front of our hotel (tram 26), maybe this can be of help next time you stay at our hotel. Besides this, I hope the rest of your stay was enjoyable with us.

Kind Regards,
The General Manager

We picked this hotel for the location. It is close to the main train station, the city center and cruise terminals. For a European hotel, the rooms are quite large. The staff was wonderful and they have very helpful concierges. We arrived early and the front desk team did their best to assign us a room. The shower is fantastic, free wifi and comfy beds and pillows. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to other travelers.

Room Tip: We had a room with a great view of the city and the river boats. Large windows.

Located on the waterfront near the cruise line dock and close to the train station, this modern hotel was very comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Although they say it's a 5 minute walk to town center, it is more like 10 to 15; still close enough for an easy walk. The restaurant and lounge were very good and we indulged after a long day walking though Amsterdam. If you're looking for all the conveniences of a modern hotel this is a great find, the only drawback was the price, I thought it was a bit high, although we booked it through Viking Cruises which probably added a bit.

The Moevenpick Hotel is a wonderful hotel. It's clean, very new, and they pride themselves on service. It is close to the train station and and they run shuttles to Centraal. We got Moevenpick because they accepted our bid on www.priceline.com. The views were wonderful and the gym was nice as well.

The only downside to the hotel is that it can be a bit of walk to City Centre. It's located on this weird inlet/dock thing (I assume so it can be close to cruise travelers) and is kind of weird to walk to. Once you figure it out, it's fine. I'd stay there again.

We stayed two nights in this property at the end of a Viking River cruise. The hotel is very convenient to the cruise terminal and is a hub for Viking and Avalon cruises. After a disappointing stay in our precruise hotel, we got smart and upgraded to the Executive level, which was worth it. We were on the 19th floor in a spacious room with a beautiful view. In room nespresso maker, complimentary mini bar, robes and even an iron made the stay nicer than if we'd been in a lower level room. Wine and hors d'oeuvres and a private breakrast room also added to the tranqulity, which given we were in Amsterdam was appreciated.
The hotel is a bit of a hike into the old town via a not so scenic route. Be wary of broken glass along the way -- it seemed that the party, whereever it started, was a good one for whoever went a bit nuts along the road.
The hotel is also convenient to the trams and Central station -- if you are able to walk well. In our group was a gentleman in a wheelchair and he and his wife struggled with that chair on the uneven stones and steps. After an initial walking tour they opted for other transport -- the area is NOT accessible for those with handicaps, though the hotel does have a shuttle. Just be sure to make a reservation for it because it fills.
Overall pleased enough to leave a good review, but if we're ever back in Amsterdam might stay in a more classic, old world style place with more elegance.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Executive level for better quality room, better views, and better amenities.
