“WOW, what a service”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

I love this hotel as it is located in south of Amsterdam where my client office is located. It is also nearby the Van Gogh Museum. It is a 4 star hotel and has meeting rooms for conducting comfortable discussions and also has a free wireless internet service. The hotel provides currency exchange and catering services. I should definitely say that the laundry staffs are a good friend of mine. They take care of my business suits very well and I should pay them a bonus every time I visit this hotel. It has about 207 rooms and safe lockers. I also referred many of my friends to this hotel. Great place to stay.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for evaluating your recent stay with us in Crowne Plaza Amsterdam – South! It is a pleasure to know that you had a pleasant and successful business stay with us and that you benefitted from our central location versus the airport and the city centre. We are especially proud that you would recommend our hotel to all your friends.

Thank you also for complimenting our meeting rooms including the complimentary Wi-Fi available. You might have noticed the musical theme that is represented throughout the building. Did you know that the New York origin of George Gershwin has led to the names of our meeting rooms?

It is a pleasure to read that you were able to enjoy our currency exchange service within the hotel together with the safes available and the same day laundry service provided. It is our aim to combine the best possible facilities with great service to make each guests stay a success.

We hope to welcome you as our guest soon again when business or leisure brings you back to Amsterdam.

Kind regards,

If you are a Business Traveler holding a Meeting In Amsterdam then I highly recommend the Staff and facilities at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South.

The Staff is excellent with a can do attitude and handled every little request we made with no bureaucracy. For example, there were three mini-spot lights dimming out the projection screen and they found a ladder and physically removed the bulbs. We needed air circulation and they opened security locked windows. We needed more coffee and they activated another station for us.

When you are hosting a meeting it is the little things that count and I learned I can rely on the friendly can do people at this hotel to make things smooth for me.

Stayed here for one night at a weekend and unfortunately i was not impressed... The check in was not that friendly we missed a warm attidude or even a simple "welcome". That they have a strange deposit policiy which other IHG hotels handle much better is another thing and not the fault of the receptionist. The rooms a modern clean and well designed definitely a big plus! The hotel is quite new and very stylish. We also visited the bar because the restaurant was close and experienced some problems which had been handled very professional and friendly by the staff. The connection to the city is also good a tram station is in walking distance. We also tried the breakfast, its a standard selection and OK. Check Out was friendly and i left the hotel with a better feeling.
In total it was an average experience but i would give it another try in the future.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your extremely rewarding review. It was a great pleasure to read that you were so impressed by the hotel facilities. We are honoured and proud that you would highly recommend our hotel. Compliments as such are a great motivation for the entire team.

As you mention the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South is located in a new urban centre devoted to international commerce and knowledge development: Amsterdam Zuidas. The location is unique and nearby Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport, the RAI Convention Center and the city centre are only a few minutes away by public transport.

It is great to learn that you were able to enjoy the free parking around the hotel on the streets during from 7 pm to 9 am. This parking possibility is also free of charge from Friday 7 pm to Monday 9 am.

We hope to welcome you back soon when you visit Amsterdam again and thank you once more for your praising words.

This was my second stay in the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South and also even better than the previous one. I was attending a conference that was actually held at the hotel so it was more than convenient and was given a corner room with a big bed this time ( last time I had two small ones) so I was more than happy. Everything is modern and clean, there is a small gym and working wifi and if you want to see something beyond office buildings it is very conveniently located right at the Amsterdam Zuid station from where you can easily take the train or a tram to the city centre. Breakfast was nice with plenty of choices. One big bonus of this hotel is that it is quiet, something you shouldn't expect if you are staying at a hotel in Amsterdam centraal. Definitely staying here next year as well if I have a chance!

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write about your experience. It is great to hear that you had such a great stay with us for the second time already and that you recommend our hotel to the traveller’s community.

It was a pleasure to read your feedback about our comfortable modern corner rooms which features indeed a King Size bed. At Crowne Plaza we know how important sleep is. Sleep is the fuel that powers your day. The Crowne Plaza Sleep Advantage program includes luxurious bedding, quiet zones and aroma therapy. In addition our soundproof doors keep away any distraction from outside so nothing stands in the way of a great night’s sleep. In the morning our breakfast buffet offers a large range of choices to start your day with a nutritious and re-energizing breakfast.

It is great as well that you enjoyed our complimentary gym and WIFI connection which is available in the entire hotel.

On top it is great that you were able to benefit from our easy access to the public transport only a short walk away from the hotel. The Crowne Plaza Amsterdam-South is situated in a new urban centre devoted to international commerce and knowledge development. The area is becoming the centre for working and living and therefore also the restaurant-, shopping- and facilities offer will be extended in the coming years to make the area livelier.

Thank you very much again for your positive review and we hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind regards,

Staff is very friendly and without be overbearing. I had a conference at the RAI and if the weather is good it is about a 25 min walk, or take the train from Amsterdam Zuid to Rai - 1 Stop. Taxi from the airport will cost between €20 and €30. The food in the restaurant is very tasty and good size portions - the breakfast buffet is one of the better ones that I have seen in Europe. Wireless is stable but signal not always that strong.

For sightseeing, the Amstel Park is not to far away by foot and at the bottom of the park is the only windmill in Amsterdam, the Rickermolen.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your recent stay with us in Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South.

Your compliments on behalf of the service, food quality of our One-O-One restaurant and breakfast buffet will be passed on to the team. Kind words as such are a great motivation for them to continuously strive to deliver excellent hospitality

It was a pleasure to learn that the location of the hotel worked well for the purpose of your elaborate trip and you enjoyed the walk to the Rai Convention Centre, which is indeed only a short walk or just one Subway stop away from the hotel.

The taxi drive from the Airport to Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South cost indeed around € 30,-. In case you are striving for a less expensive alternative, the Amsterdam South Train Station is just one stop away and only cost € 2.50,- per person.

It is very unfortunate though that we have not been able to impress you with our Wireless Internet connection in our hotel. When the strength of the connection is not sufficient our Duty Manager is more willing to assist you to strengthen the connection in your room.

Once again thank you for reviewing us on Tripadvisor and we hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the near future.

With kind regards,

Nicole Turnhout-Ammerlaan

A clean, modem hotel, walking distance from Amsterdam Zuid (South) train station. From Schipol airport, it's a couple Euro from the airport station to the Amsterdam Zuid and trains are clean safe and regular.
The hotel has good wireless for 10 Euro per day or free if you sign up to their frequent guest program. Buffet is pretty standard for European hotels which is to say really good. There is a nice bar and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quiet and with the blinds drawn, no light gets in.
The area is strictly business and if you want to see Amsterdam Central you can jump on the number 5 tram the other side if the station. The area is fairly limited for restaurant choices particularly during the weekend. I have stayed here several times and would again.

At Crowne Plaza we know how important sleep is. After a rejuvenating night’s sleep you will achieve more during the day.

Luxurious bedding, aromatherapy kit and quiet zones will help you to relax and drift off easier.
