“LOVE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

What a fabulous place. Take friends and book the dining under ground with a chef. The food is really the pull here, I want to say I feel privileged to have experienced this great hotel. I am so impressed with the views, the beautiful beds and pillow selections. I would love to stay there again.

Stayed at the Okura for two nights end of November after arriving late due to a train odyssee that went from a four hour trip to a nightmarish 10 hour trip (cancelled trains due to football fans on the tracks!)
While it may seem that the Okura is off the beaten path for "tourists" when looking at the map, the tram ride from the Central train station is an easy one and the route stops all along the old town, I recommend a tram pass for jump on, jump off all day. If you there for business, the RAI convention center is an easy walk around the corner.
The neighborhood is nicer and quieter than being in the town center with wonderful diverse local restaurants nearby.
The staff is exceptional and friendly, we were upgraded to an executive room which was very spacious with comfortable larger than twin beds, a wonderful bath with separate whirlpool bath and rain shower, double sink and Toto toilet with heating and the works. The Nespresso machine in the room is a wonderful touch for we espresso drinkers !
A full desk for those wanting to work and wonderful views over Amsterdam from the 20th floor.
We had breakfast included in the rate and found it fresh and diverse, with buffet style items as well as fresh cooked items. The personell here also very friendly and accomodating.
The concierge team were very informative and helpful - even getting us tickets to the Van Gogh exhibit at the Hermitage.
All in all a wonderful hotel which we would recommend and visit again

Spent a saturday night at this elegant hotel, stopping over in Amsterdam to meet some family. Pre-paid around €160 for a superior room, good deal for the experience as it turned out. Room was impeccable, attention to details shown in different ways, liked the Nespresso machine in the room. Elegant materials used in the room. Good breakfast possibilities. Efficient check in and check out. Friendly, professional staff. Locationwise it is a bit off though. Had a lovely dinner in the excellent japanese restaurant in the hotel.

The service on arrival for a business trip was first rate - the lady on check-in was very helpful and friendly. I was upgraded and had a massive room which was great. The room is all gadgets and gizmos in terms of electric curtains etc. The next morning, then there was no hot water in the shower which was a massive let down during what was a busy week. This was fixed over breakfast. The breakfast is the usual buffet - good quality and reasonable selection. I had reason to be in the hotel room at various points during the day (attending conference there) and there was lots of noise from repairs from the floor below which were distracting.
Overall a fair stay but not exceptional.

I stayed at this hotel for a two day conference. From arrival to departure the service from the staff is second to none. All staff members I came into contact with where extremely polite and helpful. Check in was very speedy. The hotel itself is exceptional quality and the furnishings of the most excellent quality. The food was very good. The bedrooms are extremely spacious and the bathrooms are very large and comfortable. I have no hestitation in recommeding this hotel for any event.

Very pleasant place to stay. The room was presented to a very high standard; with a very comfortable bed, and exceptionally quiet. The service from every member of staff was very friendly and could not be faulted. The breakfast was good, as you would would expect at a hotel of this price bracket; I was at a conference in the attached centre, and the food standard and general service continued to the same standard throughout. I had a massage in the Spa Centre - 60 Euros for 45 minutes, good value for a very high quality experience - though it would appear to be a spa club used by the general public so your chance of getting a massage on the same day as you ask is pretty slim. My colleague was unimpressed to be charged to use the gym in the morning then again when he wanted to go back again in the afternoon (they eventually waived the second charge). The main downside for me is that the hotel is situated in a suburb without anything around to recommend it if you want a walk around (though there are a dozen restaurants within 200 metres - go out the entrance and walk to the left). Only 10-15 minutes to the town centre by taxi however, and 20 minutes to the airport.

At 7:30 AM, after an overnight flight, you are greeted by a friendly staff that is genuinely eager to please. The hotel had rooms available for us at that early hour and the breakfast buffet was outstandingl!!!! Quality and selection was huge.
I had not been at the Okura since 1985 and it was great at the time and it has gotten better. The layout is sparkling with several great restaurants. Space abounds and even when crowded, there are not people milling around. The rooms are well furnished, spotlessly clean and very comfortable with every conceivable amenity. Service is superb! Although we booked this hotel because it was in close proximity to our Dutch counsel, we needed a conference area which was provided within 15 minutes by the desk clerk, fully serviced with coffee and soft drinks.
Although we put in heavy hours and did not have a chance to sample Dutch retaurants; the hotel restaurants were very good, but could be pricey.
One note to tourists, this hotel is a little remote from the center of Amsterdam but it is a short tram ride away. Given a choice, I would scarifice proximity to stay at a great place like this. I only wish other hotels would learn to conduct bisuness like this one!!!
