“Old Gold and Bold”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Beautiful heritage building in the Heart of Amsterdam at walking distance from Dam Square .
The rooms are Grand and have a nice view . Make sure you get it booked right as the rooms on the interior have no view.
The breakfast was well laid , The Mini Bar is fantastic . Authentic spirits in there .
Well heated and maintained spa with swimming pool and Jacuzzi

The managements responds well when asked for something .

Polite staff and nice co guests .

And they have some fab deals . Do check with them before booking ..

Room Tip: Rooms facing the canal are the best ,

This is my second stay at the Amrath and I have visited amsterdam countless times and stayed in some nice hotels.
I will not stay anywhere else in this city since descovering the Amrath.
The building is nothing less than magnificent, especially inside as there are many dramatic architectural features to enjoy (im no expert but it looks amazing)
This is also a very unique hotel experience as this is a converted building that is over a hundred years old.
The staff are very friendly, attentive and genuinely happy to help.
Both times I have stayed I have been upgraded to suite without having to ask which is unusually generous of a hotel and a very well received perk!
Minibar and coffee is included and regularly stocked up so you dont have to feel stupid about drinking a €7 bottle of water from your minibar like in most hotels- this is a small thing but a nice touch.
We were welcomed with champagne and a note from the manager.
My sincerest gratitude to the amrath team for another great stay, keep up the good work.

I have stayed here as a couple and with a relative, I also think it would be equally as good for business trips or with a family.

For want of a better phrase- I'll be back!

My husband and I just spent seven nights at the Amrath, and LOVED everything about it, as we had 4 years ago.

The staff is wonderful: the reception staff, concierge and bellmen couldn't have been more helpful, accommodating, nicer, friendlier. The location was perfect for us: it is on a canal, near the train station, with easy access to any place by foot or by public transportation.

The building itself is unique as are each of the guest rooms. Although we did not dine in the hotel we did enjoy spending time in the bar. Having free wifi and free minibar were a treat as well.

In short, we cannot wait to return!

Room Tip: Each room is different so it is just a matter of personal preference. We like seeing street action...

Positives:
- Historical look
- Close to many attractions and central station, has water view
- Free unlimited WiFi, free mini bar, free coffee machine
- Pool

Improvements:
- Old Hallways
- Ease of checking in/out
- Revolving front entrance door (the only main one), hard to push luggage through it

Close to:
Chinatown, Royal Palace, Old/New Church

Stayed in Nov. 2013

- Very close to Amsterdam Central Station, Chinatown, numerous attractions
- Historical building, sit-down check-in inside front office, halls are little old fashioned looking, but pairs well with the building's exterior
- Spacious rooms with free mini bar (restocked daily) and free coffee machine, as well as free WiFi, remote controlled curtains (functioned properly for us, but many commented on something weird with the curtains which I won't mention here)
- Great swimming pool with man-made starlit night sky, as well as a gym and saunas
- The staff are very nice and professional, overall

This hotel lived up to it's 5 star status. A lovely big room, large comfortable bed, strong free wifi internet signal, plus the best, warmest hotel swimming pool I've ever experienced. I would be more than happy to stay here again.

We booked this Hotel as it looked Grand and we loved the personality and location. We were not disappointed. Historic building that has been refurbished with great thought keeping details that are unique.
As we approached we were greeted by a red carpet and a team of smiling professional staff that were attentive to detail.
Our room was spacious with very high ceilings. The windows so enormous we had to have electric curtains to be able to close them - A novelty that my husband too control of.
Bed was comfortable as the rest of the room which was well kept by housekeeping that came in and made sure everything was perfect before our return in the evening.
The decor in the room was not my taste but grew on me as the days went on.
Bar was excellent, Restaurant very good. Food superb. Location great and easy to find.
All in all an excellent city break with style. Loved the umbrellas by the door as we did need them as we did see a lot of rain.
Look forward to returning one day.
