but it is not. There is no better location. We've stayed in four locations around the city, all claiming to have the best spot. Renaissance can state that as an understatement. Whether it is for work or play, this hotel seems comfortable and supportive of whatever agenda. One of us worked; one of us simply rested.
Staff is excellent, handling every request (even ones that required back of the front desk assistance) with extreme patience and care.
Only complaint we had in a four-day visit was that the Executive Lounge was so crowded. It was disturbing to watch guests pounce on appetizers and make dinner by taking half of the container. Lines formed for "free wine." Staff could not keep up with this type of guest behavior but certainly tried.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a junior suite, which was really a one-bedroom. Absolutely quiet and comfortable...

Good hotel, although expensive.
Rooms are excellent, with great bars and restaurant.
Close to railway station.
Recommend for business travellers.
I would strongly recommend and stay here again.
One of Amsterdam's best but expensive

Typical business hotel (I was there for a conference), except no free wifi in the rooms (only in reception area). Poor experience at breakfast - rather than simply note our room numbers, the "welcomer" insisted on checking first whether our breakfast was included, and refused to let us sit until he had. It wasn't, but we were quite happy to pay separately. On discovering it wasn't included, he STILL wouldn't let us sit, but insisted he had to "go upstairs to check with management". We lost patience and left. Hotel breakfasts at expensive enough without having to wait interminably for their bureaucracy.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms starting with 9. They're not on the 9th floor, they're in a different building...

Very clean and nice hotel in a perfect location in the centre of Amsterdam. Very good breakfast buffet, and very nice rooms.

Do have to say that to my opinion the rates for internet/other stuff are way too high though, that's why they wouldnt get 5 stars.

While this hotel is close to the train station, it is far enough away to be right on one of the most picturesque canals in the city. Add to that well above average rooms and bathrooms and this place will be a go to for us in Amsterdam going forward!

I was a bit concerned at first about how close to the train station this place was, but found that it was just convenient, not problematic. The rooms were nice, breakfast was sumptuous, if expensive, but we were there on a Sunday, so this may have been more of a brunch.

If you are coming in from the airport this is very convenient, since the walk form the Centraal station is really only 10 minutes.

Staff was helpful and nice (this is Holland after all, it seems everyone around here is helpful and nice :)), especially our Concierge.
