My partner and I stayed at the hotel for one night during a weekend break in Amsterdam. It's a truly classic 5 star experience - a stunning hotel located right on the riverfront. It's by no means a modern hotel, but instead it offers a more classic, grand, elegant experience. The rooms are spacious and finished to a high spec... More

As a Spire Elite member of the IHG Group I have stayed at numerous 5* properties......this hotel was without doubt one of the finest I have stayed at. From the complimentary champagne and cakes for my wife's belated birthday to the overall level of service, simply won't be forgotten. Highly recommended and I'll certainly be re-visiting!

This hotel and staff was nothing but incredible. We loved every minute. It was hard to go out and explore Amsterdam when the hotel was so great!

The moment you walk into the lobby of the Amstel Intercontinental you realise why the Dutch Monarchy uses it as a kind of reception annex to their Palace. What is far more satisfying is that 19th century palatial architecture comes with impeccable service here. Checking in was more like having champagne afternoon tea, and one is courteously shown to one's... 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.
