We, three New Yorkers, stayed at the Amstel for a week in May. It was our first trip to Amsterdam and the Amstel Hotel contributed a tremendous amount to the fact that it will certainly not be our last visit! The hotel is a Grand Hotel in the great tradition. The public spaces are large and stately, the rooms are... More

The Hotel Amstel is a wonderful hotel if you old and stately. The service was exceptional and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. That said, the hotel is old with old everything (except electronics)! The wood is chipped, some the fixtures didn't work and the floor squeaks. But it is stately and magnificent to look at. While there dine... More

I was taken to Amsterdam for valentines weekend and stayed in the Intercontinental hotel. The lobby is very impressive and the staff very polite.

A fantastic stay... a grand madame of Amsterdam with large rooms, great service and a wonderful ambience. After landing from a long international flight, the hotel made us so comfortable and relaxed and the entire stay continued in this way. A very helpful concierge, friendly reception and a "nothing is too much trouble" attitude, was the norm...

I am currently staying at the hotel on my first of 2 nights stay in Amsterdam. I have to say that the quality of service at this hotel is amongst the best I have received. The decor within the room is stunning, and the hotel has real character. Will definitely return to the Amstel when I return to Amsterdam.

This is a special InterContinental and much better than the rest - not just the physical property which the group is lucky to enjoy but also the management. Very good and flawless. We thoroughly enjoyed the location, concierge and staff interaction. Pity we were not here longer.

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.
