The Okura is a bit far from tourist sites, but it is quite near the Amsterdam exhibition center. The road from the hotel to the center is filled with lots of restaurants and bars so quite convenient if you are there for a show/conference.
The room itself is nothing to write home about. Standard business set up with rationed coffee and tea. Nice bathroom. The only downside of using glass to separate the bathroom from the bedroom is that if you got up in the middle of the night, you will wake up whoever is sharing the room as the light will shine through the shades.
The truly outstanding thing with the hotel are the restaurants. The breakfast is quite disappointing but that does not reflect on the Japanese and the two French restaurants in the hotel - they are incredible (and you pay for it). Skip the bar on the top floor - there is no noteworthy skyline to justify the prices.
