We stayed at the Renaissance for two nights after flying in from the states. Great service! Immaculate hotel (which is something which cannot be taken for granted here-- we found this out from staying at several other places while in the Netherlands). The location is convenient, very close to Centraal Station, while also easy walking distance to other locations. Our room was spacious and quiet at night. The breakfast buffet had many delicious choices. I would recommend this hotel highly.

The staff was wonderful. They allowed us to check in super early and check out late. The location is great. Easy walking distance to great restaurants and bars. The room is lovely. The fitness center is great. I am not sure how this place could get much better. Great stay!!!

I stayed here before. It was excellent, especially the breakfast, but the wifi sucked. Well, they fixed it up so now I had no problems using face time & viber. It's a very good hotel in a good location. The gym is nice. The rooms clean and comfortable.

We stayed in Amsterdam for a weekend and spent two nights at the Renaissance. We where happy with the overall stay and would like to point out the following "pros" and "cons".

Pros:
- The hotel is situated within five minutes from the train station (where you arrive from Schipol).
- The hotel is new and fresh and gives an overall welcoming approach
- The front of house are very friendly, check in was smooth
- There is a free of charge guide at your disposal and this person has a broad knowledge of Amsterdam (use him!)
- The beds are fantastic.
- The lounge bar is pleasant has provides free of charge board games.

Cons:
- Breakfast is served in a rather noisy atmosphere. You do not want to linger for long.
- The rooms are rather small and lacks some fundamental equipment for a de luxe room (hair dryer for instance)

I liked this hotel, nice atmosphere, nice staff, nice exec lounge - usual standard snacks (same every day tho) & it had a help yourself BEER TAP, an alcoholics dream! I only had one beer though, honest!!

The only real problem was the key system they use, we had to go back down to the lobby at least six times to get the door keys reset, they just stopped working... I had a flick through some old tripadvisor reviews and it appears other guests also had key problems. I was actually tempted at one stage to leave the room door unlocked when popping downstairs, sooner than risk the key not working. Great if you're a locksmith who can open doors, or a master burglar, but if you're bad at opening doors then you won't have much fun.

Stayed there before going on our river cruise. The service was excellent. The restaurant was great. Read my review of the restaurant. The hotel is close to the central rail station and the cruise terminal. From the airport you can take the train or, as w edid, take the Conexion bus for €13.

This was a very busy hotel on the weekend I stayed but I guess this is normal for Amsterdam. The hotel is just in a side street just off the main road through Amsterdam and about a 5 minute walk from the Central Railway Station. The public areas are modern and spacious as were the rooms although because of its layout two separate elevators are required to reach rooms on some higher floors. One of the days I woke late only to find there was no hot water left for a shower but this was a minor inconvenience. The hotel is also close to all of Amsterdam’s attractions including the red light district and a 10 minute walk from Dam Square. There is a concierge lounge for guest who have access but breakfast was served in the main dining area which was quite crowed over the weekend.
