My husband and I stayed in Amsterdam during Easter week. We chose the Amrath based on the mainly excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We wanted a really nice hotel, centrally located, with a swimming pool. The Amrath met all these requirements. We arrived from the U.S. in the morning, about 9 a.m. We were taken care of immediately. We were offered a room on the canal side but were told it wouldn't be available until later in the afternoon, so we opted instead for a room facing the front of the hotel. We were on the top floor, and noise was not a problem at all, either from the street or from the corridor. In fact, this hotel was the quietest we have ever stayed in. We never heard any noise whatsoever from the hallways.
Any problems we had were immediately taken care of. On Easter Sunday, for example, the room hadn't been cleaned when we returned at 5 p.m. We called to let them know, and the maid came up in about ten minutes, whereupon we went down to the pool and relaxed for about an hour or so. When we returned to the room, it had been cleaned.
I'm writing this letter now, because I'm shocked at the negative reviews of this hotel. We loved the expresso coffee maker, the free mini bar, the pool and spa, and unlimited towels. The hotel is across the road from the Central Station and all the trams begin and end there, making it very easy to get around and find your way back later.
We loved Amsterdam, and if we ever return, we would definitely stay at the Amrath.
