“Fantastic hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We stayed here with a discount deal. We had a ground floor room overlooking the main street, but it was not noisy at all.

The hotel is less than 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central Station. It has a traditional feel with lots of period features e.g. revolving doors, lots of wooden panelling, high ceilings.

The staff were some of the friendliest we've met on holiday. They were both helpful and courteous. The concierge took our bags to our room and showed us the features of the room.

A highlight was the free mini-bar, which surprisingly was well stocked with beers, spirits and soft drinks. The bathroom was clean, bright and large.

We had dinner in the hotel bar/lounge on the Thursday night and the food was good but the range was quite narrow. We had a steak sandwich and a seafood pasta, both of which were nice but not spectacular. The bar staff were, as with all staff at the hotel, friendly and keen to talk to you but never intrusive.

Would definitely stay again, but probably couldn't afford full price.

This was not my first stay at the Amrath and certainly will not be my last. As usual very friendly staff, great service - as you would come home.
Brought my parents along the weekend of 21 April to enjoy this experience. Make sure you don't forget your swimsuits as they have a great spa- free of charge.
From junior suite to the tower suite, all have the amazing beds, complementary mini bar, in room Nespresso machine, Rituals products and parking without headache.
And on top you are in an historic building, restored until the last detail.

Highly recommended and we certainly will be back!

Stayed here on 16th of April for 4 nights breakfast not included in a superior deluxe room.
The room was very spacious and clean,high ceilings are always a plus point for me.Electronically controlled curtains i also found a nice touch as was the 32" lcd and mini bar that was replenished daily.The mini bar includes vodka,gin,bacardi,cognac & whisky aswell as glass bottles of coke,diet coke,orange juice and sping/sparkling water.The bed was kingsize and probably the comfiest bed i've ever slept in(being a light sleeper i had no trouble nodding off).Toilet was large with both shower and bath facilities and we were supplied with fresh towels every day.

Location wise you couldnt ask for better,5 minutes from Central station and close proximity to some of the local sites ie damrak,red light district etc and walkable distance to dam square though i would reccomend getting a tram to the Museumplein,Jordaan etc as its easier to hop on and off instead of possibly getting confused where you are heading(easily done in amsterdam).

I wouldnt advise on the 50 euros breakfast advertised,its an all you can eat buffet but how much breakfast do you really need to have in the morning,i would rather just head to a bar/cafe and pay far less for a decent breakfast.The staff were attentive to our needs and were helpful when we needed them.Altogether we had a comfortable stay at the Amrath,including the free use of the spa facilities,free wi fi so i would come back to stay here in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a canal view,i believe it can be done with little expense

My husband and I stayed here for three nights - the outside of the hotel is amazing, very gothic looking and inside was just as impressive, wood paneling and marble abound.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, check in was easy and we were shown to our room.
The room we had was slightly unusual in shape, but full of character, with probably the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in and despite being on the ground floor, very quiet.
We never used the hotel restaurant or bar, preferring to go out and explore so I can't comment on them.

The hotel is housed in a beautiful historic building with amazing architectural features. It is well positioned for the train station being just a few minutes walk away. The staff were very pleasant at all times. The room was quite large for a city hotel. The beds were extremely comfortable and the noise from the street didn't disturb us at night even though our room was on ground level facing a busy road. Free wifi was a bonus.

However, this is not a 5* hotel. It is a 4* at best. There were just three clothes hangers in the small wardrobe + 3 skirt/pants hangers. There were no hand towels in the bathroom. The vanity counter in the bathroom was badly stained which made it look dirty. Breakfast was expensive & the food dishes in the buffet weren't refilled often enough so choice was quite limited. One of the napkins on our table had a large stain on it & a cup was also stained. The red carpet on the corridor outside our room was frayed and creased which was a trip hazard. Not at all what I expect from 5* hotel. Sound proofing within the hotel is not good. We were disturbed each night by loud conversation and laughter from an adjoining room that went on quite late. Our minibar wasn't restocked after the first day & when I asked housekeeping I was informed I would have to pay for any further juices I required. Finally, from a location point of view the station, red light district and Dam Square are all within a few minutes walk but I would recommend to stay in the more southerly canal belt which is a much more attractive area.
Sadly, I won't be back to the Amrath.

What a wonderful hotel and 5 star all the way. We arrived early and were greeted by very helpful and friendly staff. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was amazing. Could not belive the mini bar was free!! Wonderful location, so central. Could not fault this Hotel and would most certainly stay at this Hotel again and would highly recommend it.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights and had a really enjoyable stay....the staff were helpful and friendly, the rooms were impressive, the facilities were good and all this in a good location...The only bad word I have to say for this hotel is that the room we were originally allocated was still being painted but the staff sorted this out for us very quickly so no problems there! Would definitely stay again in future....Thanks to all the staff at the hotel for making our stay a brilliant one...
