“Good Hotel in the center of Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Stayed here for 3 nights. Hotel is very clean and up to date. Hotel staff are very friendly and courteous
Room was comfortable and a good size. Only issue i had was the noise form the street cars. Had a hard time sleeping as it seems like they run all day and night.
I would recommend hotel and go back myself but make sure your room is not facing the tracks.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your comment on Tripadvisor

It is wonderful to read that you would recommend our hotel. It is a pleasure to read that you find our staff very friendly and courteous. It is always good to hear staff delivering the service they do.

I am sorry to hear that the sounds of the street bothered you. The hotel is located in the city centre of Amsterdam and indeed traffic drives here 24-7. Luckily the hotel has different sides and not all rooms are located on the street side. I would recommend you to request for a room in the Quiet zone for your next stay. These rooms are located on higher floors and the sound of the street will not influence your good night sleep.

We are looking forward to welcome you back at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre.

Kind regards,

Maurice Janssen

This hotel is great located near Amsterdam Central railway station in the city center. Very good for business, too due to great meeting rooms. Very friendly, smiling and helpful staff. Clean. They have "silent part" of the hotel with rooms located towards narrow, silent street. Good prices for its value.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your comment with the travel community.

It is a pleasure to read that you made use of one of our meeting rooms. Indeed we offer 8 meeting rooms which vary in size located in various parts of our hotel.
Some meetings require more than a basic room; they need a creative and stimulating environment. Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centres new and Creative Meeting Space provide a fresh take on traditional meetings. An interactive 3-in1 whiteboard and creative activities intended to invigorate the group as well as flexible seating provide the ideal space for creative planning and idea generation.

Indeed we have a ‘Quiet zone’ in our hotel which are hotel rooms on high floors that are located mostly inwards and are in the silent part of the hotel for an extra good night sleep.

I agree with you in saying that the location of the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre is very convenient. The hotel is located within 5 minutes walking distance from the Central Railway Station. Also public transport stops right in front of the hotel and main highlights of Amsterdam are located within walking distance.

However I am sorry to hear that you were not informed concerning the city tax. This is a standard fee that tourists need to pay while staying in Holland. Unfortunately we can not do anything about this city tax as this is a mandatory fee.

We are hoping to welcome you back at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre.

Kind regards,

Maurice Janssen

Stayed here for 1 week in summer. Hotel standard was very good, great location , good food, i paid in full prior to traveling with hotels .com. Just be carefull as on departure you are charged with a city tax, no body tells you this untill you check out, argued that my confirmation says paid in full. Yes full, but had to pay approx £30 extra.

The hotel was located centrally so we were able to walk all over, including to the popular sites like the 'red light district' and the Anne Frank house... It was a small but nice room - the beds were comfortable and everything was clean. The staff was very friendly, especially the concierge who recommended numerous delicious restaurants for us (and even made our reservations) and circled good spots on a map he provided. But you didn't need to even leave the hotel for meals because the restaurant downstairs had a yummy breakfast buffet, complete with an omelet chef. I will definitely be back to this hotel during my next business trip.

It is wonderful to find that you truly enjoyed the breakfast buffet. Our New Dorrius Restaurant and bar provides you indeed with a sumptuous breakfast that keeps you going all day.

I am happy to see that the concierge could provide you with numerous delicious restaurants and made a reservation for you. Indeed the location of the hotel is very central. As you already mentioned, main highlights as Dam square, the Red Light district and the Anne Frank house are within walking distance.

Just got back from a 3 day break to Amsterdam, we choose this hotel after all the positive comments it received on here.
I emailed them before i left to tell them we had got married this year, and on a very warm reception welcome by a young trainee we had had a lovely corner room with excellent views, bottle of bubbly in the room and some cakes!
EVERY single person that we met at the hotel was polite friendly and couldn't do enough for us.

There are two restaurants right opposite the hotel main entrance, an Italian and the one next door can't remember the names but wow what lovely food.

The hotel and staff made our short stay fantastic, thank you!

5 minute walk from train station..we had requested an early check in and we were welcomed and taken to a large executive room immediately. Very friendly and helpful staff, gave suggestions for restaurants, sightseeing boat cruises, museums, etc. huge bathroom.. as big as our hotel room in London I think! nice bedding.. super comfortable and quiet room. Executive lounge a nice addition.. with snacks and open bar. Buffet breakfast was excellent. great location for exploring Amsterdam.
