“Great location and clean rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We stayed here 2 nights at the end of our river cruise and really enjoyed this hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean, the staff friendly and the location can't be beat. Easy walking distance to the old town, shopping and restaurants as well as only a 2 minute walk to the canal cruise boats and a 5 minute walk to the train station.
Would recommend it as a great location to stay.

Room Tip: When leaving for the airport the front desk assistant told us a cab from the hotel was 55 Euro, the...

This was our 1st trip to Amsterdam and we booked this hotel after reading the reviews on here. We stayed in a junior suite which was immaculately clean and modern and this allowed us access into the exclusive club lounge which was great as this included complimentary drinks/snacks and internet at any time of the day. Our rate included a buffet breakfast which was really nice and had a good selection of hot food and pastries. Our only slight problem came when we went into the bar on our 1st night during "happy hour". At no time was it explained to us that the Bogof offer needed to include the same drink and as we ordered 1 wine and 1 gin and then a half hour later another 1 wine and 1 gin we were charged for the 4 drinks. However after attempting to complain to bar staff we were told that we should pay full price tonight and if we came back the next night the rules would be explained to us so we could get the offer the next night. Obviously we were not happy with this response so on speaking to another member of staff the bill was amended to show the discount no bother.

All in all this is a great hotel which I would highly recommend to anyone. Great location and staff and we hope to return in the near future

Room Tip: Although our rooms view looked onto the roof and air con unit which was not the best it was very qui...

I was several times in this Hotel and it was always a great stay. If you want to stay in the center of Amsterdam you should consider this Hotel. I like especially the options of the breakfast buffet. I'll sure come back again.

Nice location near the central station and dam square. rooms were clean, staff was friendly. i didn't like the fact that you have to pay for wifi!
wifi should be free every where.
the mini bar had an automated fridge where some lever moves when you take something. i thought that was a nice idea to speed up my checkout process since i didn't use the mini bar and they didn't need to send someone to check

Room Tip: nice location

Just spent three nights here - what a fabulous hotel! Within incredibly easy reach of Amsterdam Centraal Station and a five minute walk to Dam Square. The staff could not be more friendly or helpful! It has excellent restaurant serving a good selection of Dutch cuisine - I would definitely recommend this month's Menu of the Month - and a lovely comfortable bar area. We have stayed in a few Crowne Plaza hotels over the years - all of which have been excellent - but this has been the best by far!
