“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2014

Probably not the best hotel in Amsterdam, and really not worth the price paid to put my head down on a pillow for an overnight sleep. We did not eat at the Darius but did enjoy a couple of drinks there, the bartender was not that attentative, had to give him a yell when we wanted a refill.
Check in was easy enough considering that we were a group of a fairly decent size and our rooms were available.
Great central location for everything in the heart of the city. Within walking distance of just about everything you would need, the train station, the docks, and all the shops and restaurants that you could wish for.
Room was clean and comfortable as well as quiet, no outside noises to speak of.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.

It is wonderful to read that you choose the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre to spend your city trip in.

I agree with you in saying that the location of the hotel is very convenient. As you mention it is in the middle of the city and a great start when exploring the city of Amsterdam. However I am sorry to read your comment concerning the service in our New Dorrius restaurant.

The situation you describe is definitely not according the operational standards of New Dorrius restaurant and if possible I would like to ask you for some additional details of your comment, therefore I would like to get in touch with you directly. Please be so kind to contact me directly via Jaap.Roomeijer@ihg.com.

I ask you for this as your feedback is of great importance to us and allow us to monitor and improve our services continually.

We do hope to welcome you back during any of your future visits to Amsterdam!

Kind regards,

Jaap Roomeijer

This Crowne Plaza is a very short walk (about 5 minutes) from the Central Train station, and close to the stops for the 2 & 5 trams that can take you to Museum Plein and other interesting areas. It is also in easy walking distance to the beautiful canals of the west side and the Jordaan area, as well as the hustle of the Dam Square.

The staff is friendly and efficient, and the front lobby is full of staff. There is always someone to help you. When we arrived our room was not quite ready, so we were given a complimentary drink in the lounge while we waited. The lobby is spacious and welcoming. It also looked like you could borrow an umbrella, if you didn’t have one. ….And it rained each of the three days we were there.

Our room was nice, but a second luggage rack, or a couple of drawers, other than those in the closet would have been helpful. The room had a good safe, an iron/ironing board, and coffee/tea set. Some tasty snacks were included with the coffee/tea service. The beds were comfortable, but like most European hotels, had only comforters for a cover. For someone hot natured, these are just too hot. I wish the hotels would add a top sheet, as that would be enough cover for me. (The hotel we had in Zurich did have one.) The bathroom was modern, with a full range of amenities, a good hair dryer and a magnifying mirror. The towels were quite large
.
The wifi worked well, we had a large TV, and received a daily paper with financial news.

This was our second trip to Amsterdam, and we would definitely consider staying in this hotel again.

Stayed here for work conference, and the staff was extremely attentive and helpful. In addition, the facilities at the hotel exceeded my expectations when comparing to previous hotels. Only minor issue was the wifi speed was inconsistent throughout the different locations of the hotel (room, lounge, lobby, conference room, etc.).

We didn't stay here but had an excellent dinner one evening during our stay in Amsterdam.
What a find! A delightful modern ambience, attentive staff and the best vegetarian meal I've ever had. My husband enjoyed his carnivorous meal just as much. Would love to eat here again.

We had a lovely overnight stay in the Crowne Plaza, and there is really very little to fault.

It is just a few minutes walk from the train station, and we were able to walk everywhere during our stay (inc. the Rijksmuseum to the south of the city), and so it is great location.

The service throughout was excellent. We arrived early and were not able to check into our room, but we were able to leave our bags and were given immediate access to the club lounge (which we got as we were staying in a club room). The club lounge is great - a nice comfortable space with free drinks and snacks, and just what we needed after a long journey. We were also able to leave our bags at the hotel for the afternoon after we checked out too.

The room was very nice. Clean, comfortable (inc. two comfortable chairs in the room), well equipped (inc. a Nespresso machine) with a good bathroom. Maybe not the best shower I have ever encountered in a hotel room, but it was fine. Although our room was overlooking the main road, there was triple glazing and so it was nice a quiet. There were good thick curtains too, and so we slept really well.

Breakfast was very good (really good decaf coffee, which is rare in hotels) and although it was busy the service was excellent.

We paid a bit more than we normally do for this room as a treat, but it was really worth it. Very highly recommended, and we will be back.

I have traveled to Amsterdam several times and I have always enjoyed my stay at the Crowne Plaza, City Centre. The rooms are comfortable, the staff are very helpful. The local restaurant, The Darius, is very good as well. The location is within a short walk to Amsterdam Centraal Station, the bus and tram lines, many pubs, shopping, flower market, restaurants, museums, and sight seeing. I look forward to returning to Amsterdam and the Crowne Plaza City Centre.

I have stayed here a few times over the last 3 years. In Amsterdam for shopping what is more convenient than staying right at the main shopping street. The hotel is quite new and modern. Rooms are big and comfortable. The staff is always at the ball and the service level is excellent. This place is a fine example of Dutch hospitality and professionalism. You definitely pay for it, but considering that it is Amsterdam the Price level is acceptable. If you choose the room rate with breakfast and dinner, make sure to select the monthly menu. If you like espresso's remember to ask for a room with Espresso machine. Enjoy.

Room Tip: Ask for room with Espresso machine. Room rate with dinner package is only for the menu.
