We stayed recently at The Crowne Plaza and found it to be clean, comfortable and well situated for getting around Amsterdam City Centre. Tram stops right outside the hotel, 5 mins walk from Centraal Station and easy to walk to many of the main areas of interest. Nice touch to have a bottle of water in the room each day and also a 'sleep' kit by 'This Works' on the pillow when we arrived. The only downsides were the pillows being very uncomfortable and the charge for Wi-Fi which was ridiculous with no free access in public areas. The reservation staff had been very helpful when we had to change our travel dates at the last minute and allowed us to make the change on a non refundable/changeable room rate without charging any extra for the rate which was more expensive than when we originally planned to stay.

Dear valued guest,

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

It is wonderful to read that you enjoyed your stay in our hotel. That you found the rooms to be comfortable and clean and well situated to explore the city of Amsterdam.

I agree with you in saying that the hotel has a very convenient location. The hotel is located within walking distance of the public transport as trams and trains.

It is a pleasure to read that you appreciated the complimentary bottle of water in your room and that you were able to have a good sleep in our hotel and that the aroma therapy package was able to assist you with this. This package includes two mini solutions for a better night’s sleep. One is named ‘breathe in’; this eucalyptus spray clears the head and helps you breathe more easily with a blend of Frankincense. The other one is the deep calm pillow spray; this a fusion of calming oils to relax and calm including lavender, Vetivert and Camomile.

However I am sorry to hear that you did not like the pillows in the room. I want to advice you to inform us about this during your next visit as we have a variety of pillows available in our hotel and we would love to assist you by providing the pillow of your preference.

I would like to inform you that we have a business center available where the use of internet and usage of printers is free of charge. We are currently looking into providing wireless internet at a different price point in the near future. The wireless internet for our Gold and Platinum Elite is already free of charge, for base members a discount of 25% is applicable. As from January 2014 the internet will be complimentary for all our base, gold and platinum members. Enrolment for our loyalty program is free of charge and can be arranged directly in our hotel.

The Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre team is hoping to welcome you back on your next visit to Amsterdam!

Kind regards,

Marian Jones

This is what you would expect at a Crowne Plaza hotel, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located right in the centre only 5 min walk from the central station.
The rooms are not massive but it is in the centre of Amsterdam where the houses are small and tall.
Great base to explore the city and comfortable and modern rooms

This is a very convenient hotel located in Central Amsterdam and close to most the major attractions. The rooms are quite spacious and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

The tram stops in front of the hotel and this will get you to attractions that you want to see. The Hop-on-hop-off bus is just a couple of blocks from the hotel and the Central train station is about a five minute walk.

I found the stay here very enjoying and comfortable.

Amsterdam always amazes me, like most big cities too much traffic, trams and here bicycles dominate the city. The hotels location is very handy and if you are arriving by car make aure you utilise the valet parking - less stress and less hassle. The hotel is in keeping with the brand and offers everything you would expect. WI-FI is expensive and I will continue to shout about these costs as I feel all now should be free.

Rooms and clean and well serviced with all the usual facilites.

Breakfast again was too a good standard.

Great hotel in a great location especially if you have traveled by train, happy hour at the bar is a great idea and unusual for a city centre hotel. Staff are very helpful. Very easy to get around the city by foot most things are within a five minute walk. Good selection of restaurants locally especially Savanti Italian across the road from the main entrance.

Our modern New Dorrius Restaurant & Bar offers indeed a relaxing atmosphere. Enjoy delicious Dutch classics or international favourites. Meet each other for a cup of coffee during the day in our New Dorrius Bar, or for a cocktail in the evening.Enjoy a light lunch or a relaxed evening dinner with a good glass of wine. As you mentioned we also have 2 happy hours in the evening where you get 2 drinks for the price of 1!

I agree with you in saying that the location of the hotel is very convenient. As you mention the hotel is located within 5 minutes walking distance from the central railway station, this is a great benefit traveling by train.

The Hotel is a easy 5 Minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station.

Check in was Friendly. We arrived at 16.30 but our room still was not available.
We were given a voucher to go and have a free drink in the hotel bar.
The room was ready by 5pm and they had arranged for our bags to be in the room after we had finished our drink.

We had room 236, it was a decent size for an Amsterdam hotel. Modern decor and fairly spacious and clean! The View from the window was not great, but we were there to sightsee not look out of our bedroom window!

Our room rate included Breakfast. This was a buffet breakfast and there was a wide selection. A couple of thing sI would say to improve on is they need to get some decent Bacon and We also noticed there was no facility to make toast.
If you want an omelette or fried eggs etc, just ask your waiter and these will be cooked fresh for you. Although the staff dont promote this option too often.

If your room rate does not include breakfast, I would not pay for it as its way overpriced. There is a Macdonalds serving breakfast just round the corner, if you need that option.

It only takes approx 10 min to walk to Dam square from this hotel, and a tram stop just outside the hotel helps you get around the city quickly.

If we were in Amsterdam and the price was right, we would recommend staying at this property again!

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. However I am sorry to hear that you were not able to enjoy toast. We do offer the facility to toast your bread. Our staff is happy to provide this service for you which is similar to omelettes or fried eggs. As you already mentioned our cook is there to assist you with any type of fried or boiled egg freshly cooked for you.

I agree with you in saying that the hotel is very convenient located. The hotel is located within walking distance of the central railway station, tram stops and close to many highlights which Amsterdam has to offer.
