Just back from a wonderful weekend stay at the American Hotel in Amsterdam. This hotel has everything you need to stay in the city. It is ideally located near the museums and old town canal rings with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. The staff are friendly and efficient. And the rooms and hotel have interesting art deco features. This... More

Was welcomed by Clayton at the front desk and from the very first impressions he gave I knew it would be a great stay, and we was not disappointed, the hotel is clean, tidy and the staff, from the front desk to the cleaners, bar staff were all very polite, the room we stayed in was the basic kind, but...

My grand daughter and I shared a lovely evening sitting in the bar overlooking the beautiful fountain. The lights in the water shimmered against the dark night sky as we chatted about her dreams and expectations from life. The staff were very kind and the bar serves a great martini cocktail. Thanks so much.

This is a very nice hotel for a city holiday in Amsterdam, great location, professional staff, a special mention for the morning shift concierge who is really friendly and always willing to help out. The breakfast at 20 euros per head is excellent. The rooms are okay, I would recommend an upgrade to deluxe rooms with a view at 50... More

I stayed at the hotel for two nights on business. I appreciated the central location, just steps from the bus to/from the airport. The staff was very helpful and the sleeping room quite large. At least one other reviewer noted the availability of elevators, but they may only get you so far. I stayed on the mezzanine level and there... More

I have stayed at this property over the last 25 years as it has changed management over the years. The current team is one disaster after another. For a four star hotel this is pathetic. The windows leaked cold air, there were no extra blankets - the management did provide an electric heater and blankets when advised about the situation.... More

We were generally quite satisfied with the hotel. It even has an elevator, not many of Amsterdam hotels have a lift. Room was spacy and a quite one. Breakfast was really great. They even served Prosecco for breakfast, we didn't go for it, but for our amusement some pensioners from Germany did. One incident we had with cleaning services as... More

Fell in love with the beautiful architecture and great food in the restaurant when visiting Amsterdam on day trips. So this hotel was a natural choice for a special weekend away. Food and service met my high expectations, but the rooms are really tired. It feels like a bad motel. I think there are sections of the hotel that have... More
