This is the most exquisite classic hotel we have ever stayed in and it truly qualifies as a luxury hotel. The rooms are huge and beautifully decorated and the bathrooms are opulent. The staff are very accommodating and are aiming to help in any way.

Just completed my second stay, excellent service all around. Staff go above and beyond. I will certainly be back. Great Breakfast options in the morning, sadly my schedule didn't sync up this time to try the restaurant again. SPA is a great experience with staff available to assist. Excellent massage.

Stayed at the Amstel for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. This is a wonderful hotel, with an excellent location. We were able to walk (we don't mind long walks) to the Museums, Anne Frank House, Heineken Experience, plus others. Loved our spacious room that overlooked the canal. Nice bathroom size, with robes, slippers, etc. The concierge,... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
