“Super well located quality hotel in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

Several years ago, I stayed at your hotel for just one night - I had no complaints.

Last Friday, I have, again, visited you, and have the following feedback:

Renovations made at your reception area really working. The check-in desks are well positioned, and the whole area is very welcoming.

Reception & Check-in:
Staff are very polite and professional. Even though, I had not advised of an early check-in, they made sure I was quickly accomodated, and even upgraded to a larger room. They duly mentioned special offers, hotel facilities etc..etc.. and shortly after my arrival in the room, made a call to check that all was OK.

Room:
Clearly quality renovation since my last visit. The overall quality of the room was excellent, it's a nice size, design, finish, well equipped, and comfortable. TV, internet, bathroom is nice. The shower unit was very easy to use. I liked the Nespresso machine - Nice touch.

Room-Service:
The ordered food and wine lunch duly arrived within mentioned time of 20 minutes - The pizza was tasty and good value. Room service staff were polite and efficient.

I departed fully relaxed, having decided that your hotel will now become the hotel of choice for all future travel to Amsterdam. It will also be recommended to colleagues & friends.

In short, your hotel & staff are a credit to your management company and to IHG Hotel chain!

The Crowne Plaza in Amsterdam was a great hotel. Centrally located. Near everything. We could walk everywhere. Near train. Were able to get tickets for museums through the hotel. Made it easier. Hotel staff so helpful and friendly. Enjoyed my stay.

Yes it is the boring brown building on the left just out of a seedy area of Amsterdam. But inside felt welcoming, safe and rooms whilst not huge worked very well and provided a good base from which to walk. Would use this hotel again if I had to visit Amsterdam but not my bag really, but would try their airport one to see if as good as this. Really good food and service, although the pizza wasn't!

Room Tip: internal views are quieter

Stayed at this hotel based on friend's recommendation and was not disapppointed. This was our first time to Amsterdam. The hotel is ideally located in city center within a 10 minute walk to the train station (not recommended to walk if you're lugging alot of bags around), Anne Frank's house, Dam Square, and the canal boat tours. Hotel was clean, room large with comfortable bed, refrigerator, and room safe. Staff was very friendly and accomodating and recommended restaurants based on our tastes. You've got to check out the Pancake Bakery but get there when they open to avoid stanindg in line. It's a crepe rather than pancake but it was DELICIOUS, HUGE, completely filling a dinner sized plate, and did I say delicious? You won't walk away hungry!! You've also got to try Dutch pea soup...some places were better than others but it was always tasty. We took the Connextion bus to transfer from AMS airport to the hotel which cost about 15EUR per person and took about 30 minutes after dropping other people off at different hotels. Our friends took the train from the airport to city center for about 4EUR per person but complained it was a mistake dragging all their luggage (2 rolling duffles and 2 small carryons) across train tracks, up and down curbs to get to the hotel. Train station is only a 10 minute walk without baggage.

Crowne Plaza Amsterdam

We stayed 3 nights in a club room. Excellent hotel in a very good location. The rooms are a good size for European standards and are equipped with everything you need (including UK power sockets). Friendly and helpful reception, concierge and F&B staff. The club room is certainly worth the extra cost as it provides you with complimentary snacks and drinks throughout the day and complimentary internet access in your room. Would definitely recommend!

Just stayed for 2 nights. Excellent location, just 2-3 mins from main railway station. Asked for a quieter room and were given a gorgeous room in their 'quiet zone' which doesnt allow children, no cleaning before 10am and is on top 2 floor away from any street noise. Will definitely be my 1st choice when next i visit amsterdam.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room so worth it. no extra cost.
