Wonderful staff, who were very helpful. Ideal location, close to public transport, museums, restaurants etc. Room was clean and the beds was okay (though a little too soft for our taste). Great breakfast-buffet.

The hotel was an excellent base to explore all of the major landmarks and areas; everything was within walking distance. Despite its central location, it was away from the main hustle and bustle and never felt loud or a tourist trap. The hotel staff were amazingly friendly and helpful - whatever their role. The Bar Americain's staff were brilliantly funny... More

An absolutely stunning hotel in excellent location at Leidseplein, literally 1 min walk to bars and cafes and the tram stop to central Amsterdam. Room was large, compared to Amsterdam standards, (bathroom on the small size though).Large comfy bed which even included a pillow menu if they weren't to your taste. The dining room is exquisite with its art deco... More

I have stayed on the Leidesplein over twenty times. (Close to everything of interest to me). This was my fourth stay at the Amsterdam American and I was not disappointed. Rooms tend to be on the small side but elegantly furnished. This time, I stayed in one of the small, balcony equipped, fifth floor rooms and it was great. Newly... More

Stayed at the American Hotel again after many many years. Location is outstanding on Leidseplein, with wondrrful turn of century (1882+) architecture and ambience.. Recently renovated rooms and foyer, appropriate for a new owner in Hampshire. Front desk service and attention were excellent and hotel style blends old and new quite well. A few bugbears, however, reflects need for closer... More

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay! With a reasonably-priced upgrade, we were given a corner room with 2 balconies, providing wonderful views of the Leidseplein plaza below. All personnel (reception, housekeeping, concierge, restaurant) were pleasant, courteous, and immediately helpful when we made several minor requests. The bartender/server in the outdoor café was so friendly and... More
