“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Stopped overnight in Amsterdam where we have visited many times in the past. Stayed in one of the junior suites; arrived early AM by air and room was ready. Concierge extremely helpful; able to buy tram tickets in the hotel. Immediately set our Rijksmuseum visit. As has been said the hotel is located on tram lines 2/5 and is no more than a five-minute walk from Centraal Station. Sincer we were departing by train the next day this last was important to us.

Room plenty large enough with a separate seating area; excellent repair for furniture; good mattress; fast internet service; good air conditioning. Only drawback: room is located at front of the building and tram rumble may be a bother to some.

Good breakfast buffet selection.

Overall, staff very friendly and helpful and highly recommend this establishment.

Room Tip: Trams run on the street directly in front of hotel until 1 AM or so and rumble can be heard. Ask fo...

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.

It is wonderful to read that you experienced your stay as excellent. It is a pleasure that our concierge was able to arrange tram tickets for your visit to the Rijksmuseum. I agree with you that the location is very convenient to see all the highlights of Amsterdam and to walk to the Central Station.

It is also great that you enjoyed the space and conditions of the room.

We are looking forward to welcome you back during one of your future visits to Amsterdam!

I stayed 16/7/14 and find the service, attention to detail and their friendliness unsurpassed in any hotel I stay in in the whole of the Netherlands or the rest of Europe that I use.
The food and service in the restaurant was excellent and cleanliness of all areas of the hotel is of a very high standard.
The helpfulness and politeness of all the staff make you feel very welcome and special at this hotel.
Finally the speed of check in and check out was great as all 4 desks were manned at peak times keeping the wait time to an absolute minimum.
I have booked to stay on 5/8/14 and have no reservations in recommending this top hotel for anyone looking for high standards with a personal touch

Room Tip: never had a room I have not been happy with and I have stayed numerous times

Stayed for 4 days in late June. Hotel staff were very impressive, from housekeeping to hotel management. Concierge service was especially above average, helping in all activities and plans. Everyone on the staff was pleasant and professional. Rooms are not large but comfortable, clean and well appointed.
Hotel is in the middle of Amsterdam with easy access to transportation of any kind. Good place to stay for tourist activities!
Would stay again and highly recommend to others.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.

It is great to read that you overall stay was excellent and that you were impressed by our staff.

I agree with you in saying that the location of the hotel is very convenient. The central railway station is located within 5 minutes from the hotel. The public transport also stops right in front of the hotel and will take you to all the highlights of Amsterdam. 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.

The Crowne Plaza staff really goes above and beyond to make your stay in Amsterdam one to remember. If you exercise at all during your stay, be sure to stop by the front desk for a complimentary post-workout snack.

The hotel is a short distance from the Jordaan district, which we appreciated as well.

Overall, highly recommend the Crowne Plaza.

Really, this is all about the location- a 5-minute walk from the train station. The area is really bustling, but the hotel is pretty quiet and calm (outside of the main lobby, which is hopping). The rooms are nothing to write home about, nor are the baths (ours was tatty, but not horribly so). If you don't need to easy location, and you're going to be in Amsterdam a while, I would go with a smaller hotel on the canals- that would be lovely. If you are there for a weekend, like we were, this is a nice, easy stopping point. Just an fyi- if you are carrying heavy bags, the taxis probably won't take you from the station to the hotel- it's not worth their money. No worries though (if you don't have lifting/walking issues)- the hotel is across the street and up a bit, but it's a pretty easy (and flat) walk.

I chose this hotel on the location for touring as we were arriving several days in advance of our cruise. First - the location is FANTASTIC! It is walking distance from the Centraal Station - the train station. I did NOT want to walk to the hotel from the train station with my suitcase...but honestly, it was super close and very easy. We took the train from inside the airport to the Centraal Station....and walked to the hotel. This saved a huge cab fare and was very easy! Upon leaving the hotel....we took a cab to the cruise port and it cost very little so I was glad to save any hassles since it was raining.

It is very important to be close to the Centraal Station for taking trams all over Amsterdam....so the location ended up being perfect for us!

I emailed the room manager, Maurice Janssen, and he made sure we had a great room to celebrate our 40th anniversary. The rooms are huge and very nice - American style. The bathroom was also quite nice! We arrived early in the morning after an all-night flight and our room was not ready as the present occupants were still in the room. Mr. Janssen gave us a temporary room to relax in until our actual room was ready. What an amazing thing to do for us! I have never had this done for me in the past and I travel a lot!

Johan - the Concierge - was super helpful to us for various tickets and reservations. For all the stressing I did about buying tickets online to avoid lines....I found out that I could buy my tickets right from the Concierge and get a discount on top of it! He gave us great maps and directions, as well.

Our room did not include the breakfast buffet, but we opted to purchase it. It was well worth it. A very nice buffet in a beautiful restaurant. I had read that since many restaurants offer a breakfast buffet - that many local restaurants don't serve breakfast. I needed a good breakfast before a full day of touring.

Overall - staying at the Crowne Plaza was a 10 out of 10! Nice hotel, super friendly staff including Silvie at the front desk, and great location. Beds were comfortable, shower was good....what more could I ask for??

I would HIGHLY recommend the Crowne Plaza if you are traveling to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: I believe that ANY room would be fine. Noise was NOT an issue at all even though the hotel is on a...
