This is a unique place to visit even just for the beauty of the art deco interior. We have been for coffee and cake three times whilst on visits to Amsterdam and have never been let down by the ambience, the attentive service and the fantastic coffee and cakes. The coffee is served on a small tray with a small... More

A grand hotel in the old European style. Well staffed at the front door and desk. Everyone very helpful. Rooms clean and well maintained. Great location near theaters, restaurants and museums. Rooms large and a bit dark but this added to the charm! Will return.

Just returned from 3 nights in Amsterdam. We went for the cheapest room option so weren't expecting a big room, but was a bit disapointed the room didn't really have windows! On check in, we were told that if we didn't like the room, there was nothing they could do as we were the last ones to arrive that day... More

Just a block from the bus station. All the must seeing in Amsterdam are around a 15 minutes walking and the tram 2 passes almost through the door. The breakfast is right enough. If we go back to amsterdam certainly we repeat this hotel.

Fantastic hotel. I booked this for my husbands 40th birthday - travelling from Scotland. I paid extra for a canal view room which was worth every penny. Our room was stunning - modern and had a lovely balcony overlooking the canal. The hotel was very clean. Staff were friendly and attentive. The little touch of two complimentary drinks on the...

Pleasant staff but the rooms are tired and dingy and the hotel is worn out. Location is good so if you get it at the right price then you should be happy. I remember staying here when the American Hotel was one of the best so perhaps this has clouded my view. Anyway, just think budget.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and review posting. Approximately half of our rooms have a more classical character. We are sorry that you have perceived this as tired. We would be interested to know which parts of the hotel you consider worn out. We have many recently refurbished contemporary rooms. It seems that these would fit your taste... More

After years of visiting Amsterdam, I finally got to stay here and I was not disappointed. We were upgraded to a deluxe corner room with double aspect twin balconies, huge bed (probably bigger than your average room in they city) and just the gorgeous art deco building is pretty mind blowing. Staff are polite and friendly without being over the... More

Just returned from a weekend in Amsterdam to celebrate my birthday. The Amsterdam American is a great base to explore the city from. It is in the Southern Canal Ring area, which is only a ten minute walk to the Museum quarter or two stops on the tram. It is also near a number of theatres which means that there... More

The rooms are small but the bed was comfortable. Having the balcony made this room work. That added space really helped. I was traveling alone on business so this room worked. If you had a companion with extra luggage, that would be a challenge.

Luckily most of these come with a balcony which helps enormously. Please inform us if you plan a future trip, in order for us to allocate a bigger room next time should you... More
