“Beautiful hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Really enjoyed our stay here. Free upgrade to junior suite with city view. Lovely spacious room with very comfortable king size bed. Great bathroom facilities. Free minibar has to be a plus and made full use of it especially as it was topped up daily. Breakfast not cheap but good choice. Pool and spa area quite nice though jacuzzi and steam room not working during our stay, but was nice to relax in the pool after a busy day walking. Lovely meal in the hotel restaurant. Lazy Sunday high tea very nice and worth the money for late check out and amount of food/ drink available. Overall a lovely place to stay .

Room Tip: Invest in a tram ticket for the duration of your stay or there's lots of walking to really see A...

We stayed at the Amrath for 4 nights in October with friends. The hotel is just a short walk from the station and very hard to miss given its grand exterior. The main reason for visiting was to see Fleetwood Mac [great concert] and see the city.

On arrival at the hotel we were warmly welcomed by the staff and shown into a quaint old office that is reception. A “congratulation on your anniversary” was the welcome, how did they know that we thought. After quickly sorting out the formalities we were shown to our rooms, both clean and well presented in a tasteful art deco fashion. Exceptionally comfortable bed, best nights sleep in ages. The Nespresso machine was great for coffee and the mini-bar welcome after long days sight seeing and for pre-dinner drinks with friends.

Oh yes … a big Thank You to the AMRATH for the little welcome that was in our room to help celebrate our Wedding Anniversary.

Will definitely come back.

I've stayed at the Amrath in the past and was saddened to see see how quickly the level of quality has fallen. The stunning architecture of the building remains but sadly - the hotel has not kept itself up to date internally.

I found the staff to be generally unhelpful.

They have one of the worse wifi connections ive' ever seen with a speed that is so slow it would often take hours to send a single e-mail. Each time I have stayed at the hotel the internet has been terrible and each time they give the same excuse saying a engineer has been called. The fact is - there internet is terrible and all business customers - take my advice and look elsewhere. It truly is appalling considering Amsterdam is one of the world's tech capitals.

Also disappointed with the spa -on 2 visits this year - dirty towels were all over the place. On my last visit yesterday - there were a group of guys drinking openly from spirit bottles and playing loud music in the relaxation area and the staff did nothing until we complained. There'a time and place for that but downtime in a spa is not one of the the

Waking round the hotel - carpets need replacing and the rooms are still way too dark . This is a 3 star hotel with 5 star prices.


For the price, the deteriorating level of service -I'm afraid i won't be staying here any longer and was glad to check out .

Room Tip: I've only stayed in rooms which have been very very very dark - ask for one with natural light.

Spent two nights at this hotel and expected a great hotel since it is a very expensive one but was very disappointed. The stuff was sometime very unpleasant and in other times did not care much. For checking in and out we had to stand up since they have a strange set up in which in an office there are two reception stuff and we had to wait out side by the door for a long time until we were served. Breakfast was good but very expensive 25 euro. The Wi-fi signal was very weak upon complaining I was told that they are about to replace the system. I was told that it is an accessible hotel for handicap but was astonish to find out that there are 10 stairs at the entrance to the hotel with not ever a rail. Later I was told that they have some kind of "elevator" to a side door and every time we left or return to the hotel we had to ask somebody to open the door for us - very inconvenient to say the least. I will not return to this hotel nor recommend it to any of my friends.

My husband and I spent 4 nights at this hotel and we were expecting something great as it was not cheap, but it was not like that. The staff were ok and not too worried about helping us. The reception had a weird set up, not really possible to hang out by he lobby. The location was ok, but later I realized I'd rather stay closer to the Museum District or Jordaan area. Honestly, the best thing about this hotel was the bed as it was very comfortable, and the fact that the room got completely dark even when it was very bright outside, but everything else was just ok. For the price they charge, I was expecting more than ok.

Quality and the money you paid did not match. It settled to an advantageous location but you could not feel yourself at a 5 star hotel. Towels are not clean enough and the cleaning lady could came during the night and asked "do you need something personal" we have never experienced such strange thing ever!

A grand hotel,and restoration with 12 foot ceilings , beautiful stained leaded glass .The spa area was second to none , but staff seemed disorganized and some a little snooty. Free restocked mini bar certainly helped but the final straw came when 7 am wake up all did not come and they did not even offer an apology....one chap at check out indicated not my job and even though knew we were now running very very late chose to take two phone calls during my checkout. He then got a bit nasty as i asked about the cab we had called down for as we exited room has been reserved for 10 am. As that as what i asked for. As i began to become somewhat agitated a lovely young lady came to the rescue and indicated it was her that had called the cab, it was on its way and not reserved for 10 am like the rude young man kept insisting . Unfortunately the staff or lack of organization and mgt put a very sour note on what should have been 5 star all the way. We went back to Amsterdam at end of our trip for three more nights and chose to stay somewhere else where we felt our business was appreciated .
