We had a wonderful time at this old, grande dame hotel overlooking the Amstel River. The room was lovely, with a period decor and furnishings which comfortably welcomed us rather than being stiffly but uncomfortably beautiful as period decor sometimes can. Necessary modernization provided desired creature comforts without intruding on the period ambiance.

The fine dining lived up to its Michelin star rating; more casual dining was also excellent. The staff was excellent and attentive.

On first impressions, this hotel is grand. It is stately and sumptuous. You can see the excellence from the grand staircase in the lobby, individual check in desks, opulent decor right through to the rooms with as many towels as you need for a towel party, full size liquor bottles, antique style vases and large separate rain shower, toilet and bath. Needless to say the whole hotel is full of character.
However, taking a closer look away from the grandiose, this hotel is old, and at places looking rather tired. While the hotel has made attempts to modernise such as adding high tech TV , music systems, on the other hand the chipped furniture, old fixtures which don't work etc makes it look dated - particularly emphasised when a high tech TV is sat next to it. The Intercontinental has bags of character but doesn't quite feel like a well oiled machine.
And also, if you are a business traveller, I would point out that the desk is small and not the most laptop friendly (plug sockets not convenient, no table lamp - i stayed in the superior room).
I do need to add that the service and attention to detail of the staff are excellent - worth paying extra for but not the hefty price tag which the hotel demands. Great to look at, but not 100% for usability and meeting the expectations I had for a 5*.
Overall, I was left satisfied but not blown away.

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 large, well-appointed, and comfortable. The views of the Amstel River were delightful. Breakfast was wonderful every morning.

The crowning glory, however, is the staff, and in particular the Concierges. Friendly, knowledgeable, competent, and attentive are all adjectives that I would use. They somehow developed an intuitive understanding of us, our interests, and our style and made recommendations that always delighted us.

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 at the magnificent La Rive restaurant. The hotel is very close to the Amsterdam airport which is a plus.
