We had a very nice stay at the Hotel Okura. The hotel lobby, restaurants and rooms are very nicely decorated. Our room was spacious and very modern. We did have issues with the heating and cooling. The hotel is right on a canal.
The health club and pool were very nice.
The staff was pleasant and helpful. The check in was a little long as they were overly thorough. The one consigliere was not helpful. He was suppose to print off the train schedule, but forgot. Then he printed off the schedule for a different time then we requested.
They have taxis outside ready when you are. The bellman were helpful and friendly.
We took the breakfast and health club option. This was a good deal. The breakfasts were good, but the omelet chef (different one everyday) could not keep up with the small number of guests. They had a poor system to organize the omlets that were ordered, and he could only cook one at a time.
Hotel Okura is on the outer fringe of Amsterdam. The main part of town is walkable, i.e. ~15 minutes to the Heineken brewery. The Metro runs by the entrance of the hotel. This is a good option to get into the fun section of Amsterdam too.
Hotel Okura seems to be a famous hotel. Beyonce and the Queen of Holland were scheduled to stay here this month.
