“Excellent hotel in the center of everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Excellent hotel at walking distance from everything-5 minutes from the Central station,10 minutes from the shopping streets and department stores,15 minutes from a very nice zoo,30 minutes from the museum quarter,5 minutes from the red light district,etc.
The hotel is located in a historic landmark building dating back to the 1913 but the equipment is modern including here coffee machines, lcd tv, WiFi.The rooms are equipped with large safety boxes,you can easily put a big laptop inside.
There's a well equipped wellness center with a swimming pool and a jacuzzi.
The rooms are clean and comfortable.
The staff is very friendly.
Negative moments-the shower cabin is open,so after taking a shower the floor of the bathroom is all covered with water.And -but this is probably my personal problem-the bed mattress is too soft.But this is a matter of taste ...and personal health.

Room Tip: rooms with canal view

A unique art deco style hotel which was earlier a shipping house. Room was very spacious overlooking a beautiful canal with large windows that could be opened. A free minibar with a great selection of drinks which was re-stocked daily. Just a few minutes walk away from the action of central Amsterdam but in a quiet and peaceful area. Also just a short walk to Centraal Station. Would definitely stay again!

Came to Amsterdam for a long weekend Fri-Mon, spent 3 nights at the Amrath which was really
worth the money. Staff were very nice and helpful. The facilities in the room were excellent and there was a small gym. There wasn't much equipment and it was a bit old but did the job for me and my partner. Had a lovely lunch in the restaurant on Sunday and again the staff were very good. It has lovely ornate decoration in foyer and rooms with a superb main staircase (check out the skylight on top floor). Had a lovely stay in Amsterdam and the hotel really helped - lovely!! Very close to train station and other attractions. Many thanks to all of the staff

Room Tip: Rooms on 3rd floor were lovely and quiet. could also view the fantastic skylight on the main stairca...

We stayed for two nights in a deluxe room wich was very spacious and nice. The free minibar is a nice touch that you don't get many other places. The close proximity to the central station is a definate plus. A five minute walk, an the hotel is easy to spot with its grand architecture.

The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of towels. Plus also for the spa and the breakfast buffet.

We stayed at this hotel over New Years for 3 nights as we were on a 4 week European holiday to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Lets just say this hotel lived up to my expections. From the free mini bar to the huge room with very mordern decor I loved every minute staying here. The bed was comfy and we had a view of one of the canels. The staff were always attentive and this hotel is in walking distance to the city centre and all attractions ie by either canal boat or bus. We did get a free upgrade on our room and thank the hotel for making our stay just that little bit nicer!! As this is an old building seeing some old and some new decor really blended well. Would highly recommend staying here!!

Room Tip: If you can get a room to the back of the hotel with a city view on the highest floor possible. Very...

Had an enjoyable stay at this beautiful hotel, which was a good base for exploring Amsterdam whilst being away from the busy centre.

The staff were very helpful, the complimentary minibar useful, and the rooms well appointed and decorated.

We had a problem with our first room which smelt a lot of smoke but we were immediately moved to a room with a canal view which was far nicer (try and get if possible).

Overall a pleasant stay but they need to ensure that rooms are properly checked and aired if needed and the check in process could be quicker.

We first stayed here in 2009, and were delighted to get the chance to return. The Amrath is a great base from which to explore Amsterdam, within walking distance of the Central Station, and the lovely meandering streets and canals.

The hotel itself is nothing short of stunning; architecturally and decoratively. You must take some time to wander around and see the remains of the majestic shipping offices and the lovely glass and woodwork.

The staff are always on hand to help and advise, and the facilities such as spa, free mini bar, comfortable bed and spacious room all add to a great experience.

I hope we get a chance to stay again in the not too distant future.
