“Top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Very happy with our stay at this hotel. We stayed 2 nights and location was ideal for us. Easy access to attractions, restaurants, train station, trams, port. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.

It is a great pleasure to read that you comment our hotel as being “Top notch”! As you mention the hotel is an ideal starting point when exploring the city of Amsterdam. This because public transport, many nice restaurants and bars, the shopping street and many highlights of Amsterdam as the Jordaan, Dam Square, the Red Light District and the Anne Frank house are located within walking distance.

The Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre team is looking forward to welcoming you back!

Kind regards,


Maurice Janssen

Hotel staff is the best, very knowledgeable and courteous! The hotel location is a plus, near the train station, flower markets, etc. Rooms are small (typical Europe), but very clean and comfortable. Check out the "Coffee Connection" next to the hotel. Captain Dave brews a great cup!

The location of the Crowne Plaza was very convenient to all of the major attractions. The concierge can provide al necessary tickets to the major sites, including metro passes for transportation. The hotel staff were phenomenal and went out of their way to make visitors feel welcome.

Room Tip: when you book your room, request a king or queen. Many of the rooms come with single beds. Internet...

This was our second stay in Amsterdam in 3 years. Our experience was so good in June 2011, we booked the hotel again, in July 2013. It is very conveniently located, the rooms are very quiet, despite being in a busy location, and the employees couldn't have been nicer. It is close to the Central train station, the dock for canal tours, Dam Square, the Lindberg Tour office, and trams to get you anywhere else you need to go. We thoroughly enjoyed a nightcap at the bar one evening, and the restaurant was attractive and cheerful.

We visited Amsterdam staying at the Crowne Plaza before and after a Baltic cruise. Excellent hotel, great location. Close to the central train station, red light district, restaurants. Very nice accommodations, beautiful rooms, very clean. We would stay there again without hesitation.

We had an unplanned stop in Amsterdam, and were fortunate to be able to get a room at the last minute from the Information Center. Great location, but not on a canal. The room was very quiet and tastefully appointed. Nice selection at breakfast, very clean hotel, and professional staff.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.

It is wonderful to read that you were still able to reserve a room upon the day of your actual stay!
As you mention the hotel is not located on a canal however within 5 minutes walking distance you are at the canal where the boat cruises depart! Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre is located within walking distance of the Central Railway station and within reach of many of the highlights which Amsterdam has to offer!

We hope to welcome you back during one of your future visits to the city!
