“Classic charmer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

Tucked along a canal with classic rooms, and tremendous service this place will not disappoint. The Consierge may be the best I have encountered at any hotel. The interiors are historic yet warm and the staff goes out of their way toe ensure satisfaction. Don't miss tea in the lounge off of the lobby. Great place for business people as the rooms work.

Room Tip: Ask for waterside.

Wonderful experience. Being right on the river really gave us a taste of Amsterdam.
In fact we spent an entire afternoon laying on the chaise lounges outside the spa watching the boat traffic go up and down the Amstel---a very entertaining experience. A nice location in walking distance of many sights.

The room was comfortable and elegant and the concierge very helpful

This was a five-star hotel where you could "trust" the five star status - everything was perfect: room; food; service- somewhere you can truly relax and enjoy the art museums of the Dutch capital.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

For a hotel of this standard and this many stars, I find it amazing in 2011 to have no proper work desk in a room. Surely most people have laptops and don't want to bang their knees on a mock-antique desk they are sitting at to work on their computers, also a desk with no lamp or lighting directly above it. Consequently I found it very very hard to work in my hotel room. I can find no fault with anything else, ... and for this level of hotel I would not expect any faults, but. time to get into the 21st century for furniture!

Dear valued guest,

At the Amstel Hotel we strive for our guests to get the best of everything and therefore we are very happy to read that "beautiful" comes to mind when describing our service. Thank you for the compliment.

On the other hand, we are sorry to learn that the work station in your room did not meet your expections. It has been brought to our attention before for some rooms and this is part our room enhancement program.

We hope to welcome you to the Amstel Hotel again in the future.

With warm regards,

We just spent 3 nights in Amsterdam. This hotel is top of the line class and elegance. It is well located, away from the riff raff and close enough to walk to all. Very old world charm with big rooms and bathrooms and towels, etc. Lovely spa- pool, but we had no time to use any of it.

Loved this hotel, it's got a wow factor you don't get in many hotels

Service was typical of good 5 star hotels,

Only downside is it's a little too far away from the main attractions

Only negative is maybe the price tag?
