The Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre is a 4 stars hotel located in a strategic position in the heart of Amsterdam, just few hundreds meter far from Amsterdam Central railway station.
It provides the guests a very good services level.
The building has been recently refurbished, the lobby is made for business men, and it is possible to have meeting rooms available for all kind of meetings, Wi – fi is covering the whole building with a very good signal. The furniture’ style is minimal, everything is functional, stylish but it does not look like a “Rococo church” full of golden decorations and so on. Nevertheless in the rooms you will find all what you can desire from an hotel. First of all the room is perfectly clean and provided with all the comforts: 40 inches LCD TV, extremely comfort bed and pillows, a wide modern and functional bathroom, wardrobe with light inside, safety box, minibar, business desk , different type of sockets to plug electronic devices (AUS/NZL sockets included).
Rooms are wide, quiet and well equipped things that make the staying really comfortable, especially after an hard working day.
A cattle with a selection of Ceylon and Japanese organic tea, biscuits, instant coffee and chocolate, dark chocolate tablets, 500 ml of water are provided everyday free as room facilities. Executive floor and lounge available.
The staff is very professional and friendly, the room service is quick responding.
The breakfast is good, in any case they have to improve the selection of jams (only strawberry and orange taste available) such as the selection of cheese (we are in Holland!!!!) and ham. It is possible to have fried eggs, omelettes and crepes expressly made by a chef present in the breakfast room…which is the same location of the New Dorrius restaurant.
I checked out the New Dorrius again (business dinner) and I found out the same excellent level of cousine.
Internet, always available but…it is not acceptable to pay 6,95 Euro (1 hour) , and moreover it is impossible to stop and start again the connection session, or 19,94 Euro (one day) for the connection.
The “Health Club” is small but equipped with a good range of cardio fitness machines and also multi power machine for body building.
The sauna room is not in good maintenance conditions.
1) Thermometer out of order, signs always 40°.
2) It is impossible to poor water into the “aroma system” as the big wooden spoon is completely broken
3) The shower side jets are out of order.
The sauna room is perfectly clean, no problem under this profile.
This hotel has been created more as business Hotel than a “family hotel”, even if it is nice also to spend some vacations with the family in the Crowne Plaza. For that reason I find the internet policy quite stupid, as you find around the hotel some pubs which provide FREE INTERNET CONNECTION to all their customers. Considering the room rate it seems to be at least anachronistic.
In any case, considering the whole matter, the Crowne Plaza is a very good, modern, elegant, and efficient hotel, I suggest to book here more for business than for leisure time, but, of course this is my feeling.
To be an excellent hotel they have to improve breakfast, to think of a decent internet connection policy , and to repair the sauna room. I know these are details, but when are not staying in an Hostel details are the most important things…especially for a 4 stars hotel and up…
