“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

I give this hotel 4 stars for the room and location and a fifth star for excellent service.

Easy walk from Centraal train or metro station to the hotel. The #2 and #5 trams pass right by the hotel and take you to the museum district. Five minute walk up the road to the Albert Heijn supermarket.

My room was spacious, modern and clean. I faced the front, it was mostly quiet except for a tram rumbling by once in a while.

The service provided by the front desk and concierge was excellent.

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.

It is a great pleasure to read that you give the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre 4 stars for the room and the location and even five stars for excellent service.

I agree with you that the location is very convenient. As you mention is the Central Railway station located within 5 minutes walking distance also other types of public transport stop right in front of the hotel and will take you to all the highlights which Amsterdam has to offer. Our concierge will be happy to assist you by giving advice what the best places are to visit in Amsterdam and of course what the best restaurants are to visit while you are here.

Furthermore it is great to read that you appreciated the services delivered by our Concierge and Front Desk staff, it is always a pleasure to read when staff is delivering the service they do!

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back one day.

Kind regards,

This hotel has great staff, very friendly, nice and chatty, attentive and very knowledgeable.They make it a pleasure to stay there. The rooms are a pretty good size (for a city centre Amsterdam hotel), nicely done out with everything you need. There is a very nice lounge area to relax in on the ground floor. Good location just a couple of minutes from the station and to head into Jordann in particular. No great view to speak of apart from a good people-watching breakfast/bar area (which has a nice breakfast).

I've stayed for the second time at this hotel and was - again - pleased with it.

It's in a good location, near all the main attractions. If you don't feel like walking you can take the tram just outside the hotel to more farflung parts of town.
Rooms are quite large and quiet.
Service is excellent: I forgot some personal items in my room and when I called the hotel they immediately proposed to send it back to my home.

Don't hesitate to book it for a trip to Amsterdam, be it as a tourist or for business.

I was looking for a hotel in Amsterdam to stay at whilst in Amsterdam for valentines weekend with my wife, I looked at Crowne Plaza v Swissotel v Plaza Victoria but couldnt make a decision.
After several questions back and forth to the hotel manager on facebook, I decided if he had been so patient, polite & Curtious on the phone and internet i would give the hotel a try, left my card details and made a reservation.

When i arrived in Amsterdam i didnt know how to find the hotel but it was almost directly across from central station and had everything for a weekend within walking distance.

The staff were great from the barmen - reception - concierge.

My wife complained that the room was a little small but she fell asleep everytime her head touched the pillows and she loved the comfortable bed.

Food & Drink prices in the hotel restaurant are as good, if not better then outside and happy hour is always worth a visit after dinner.

The duty manager is just out if University a few years but a asset to the Crowne Plaza brand & I will be using the hotels around the world in future on this first great experiance.

Well done to all your staff.

Room Tip: The rooms dont have a ocean view and space is at a premium in all Amsterdam hotels but you only use...

Thank you for taking the time to write and share your experience with the travel community.

It is wonderful to read that you choose the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre to spend your Valentine's weekend in.

As you describe it is correct that the hotel is located just across the street of the Central Railway station, this is solely a 5 minute walk. Also many other highlights which Amsterdam has to offer are located within walking distance.

Furthermore it is great to read that you comment the staff as being great and helpful. It is always a pleasure to read when staff is delivering the service they do.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back one day!

Chose this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and thoroughly recommend it. Staff are efficient and extremely helpful. Walking distance to most areas but also handy for tram to more outlying areas. Particularly enjoyed Jordaam and surrounding areas. Walking distance to Centraal station. We did not eat or drink in hotel. Haarlemstraat is worth a look.

I was at that hotel for a conference 2 weeks ago and I stayed there for a week. The hotel is nice, w with smiling and helping staff and is located on a walking distance from the Central station and most of the sightseeing places in Amsterdam. Conference facilities are good, the restaurant also.
Maybe the price is a little bit higher that expected (especially during high season as the ISE show) but I think this is OK for the location. Rooms are big enough with everything you expect from such a hotel.
