Cannot fault the hotel, staff very good, facilities top notch...................except.
Coffee machine in room did not work so advised front desk. We had a letter advising that the "buzzing noise in the bathroom had been sorted" (what buzzing) but guess what the coffee machine still did not work. Bit poor for a 5* but this was simply an irritation.

Twenty Third Bar did very good Bloddy Marys.

Room Tip: Hotel is expensive when a large conference is being held at the nearby RAI conference centre.

As our original chosen hotel was overbooked, we were placed at the Okura hotel. A nice upgrade hotel wise, but location wise it was a step back. Luckily there is a tram stop just in front of the hotel, because walking into town is a bit too far.

We were provided with a nice (bit outdated) corner room on the 19th floor. You could open the curtains with a remote control when lying in the bed, which was really nice given the view. The bathroom had a second television, which was located in a place that made it totally useless. You could only use it when standing in the door opening. TV is not really I would comment on when being on a holiday, but this was rather silly.

The reason for not giving 5 stars to the place is related to the service that we received. When entering and leaving the hotel, our luggage was not taken by the bellboy (maybe it was too small?) and checking in took us too much time. Furthermore I found it strange that when checking in in a Dutch hotel, we were forced to talk in English as there was no Dutch staff available.

We did not use the breakfast facilities as they are really expensive (as is the entire hotel). Lovely places nearby to have breakfast, so don't worry.

For the money we paid for our original hotel, this was worth the money, but for the money the room actually costed, I believe it to be overpriced.

Stayed here twice now and it just gets better each time one of my favorite places to visit.
Very professional and friendly service with great rooms and amazing choice of restaurants.
Rooms are very modern and comfortable with great views of the city (You can order pillows from a menu just one nice touch)
Serre restaurant and Yamazato restaurant are both brilliant.
During the day service was efficient, plentiful and staff were motivated however during night the team seemed under staffed as receptionist/ porter/ room service/ housekeeping seemed to consist of two people and on weekends management should really look into scheduling more this is the only negative point during both of my stays.

Stayed at Okura Hotel, Amsterdam for 4 nights while attending the European Society of Cardiology. The staff was helpful & professional. Hotel was superb. The hotels location was ideal. About 7 minutes walk from the RAI Convention center, 18 minutes walk from the Museumplein(museums square). Also the hotel is located between two tram stops, which makes getting around the city very easy. Team 25 takes you through Dam square and end in the Centraal station ( the busiest region of Amsterdam).

We stayed 3 days in Okura hotel for meeting with 40 people from everywhere in the world (Europe, Asia, Turkey, Russia, USA...). So we needed to get an excellent hotel. Everybody was satisfied.

The bedroom are clean and have a nice style. Meeting room was arranged as we wish, food was nice, and people very kind and reactive. However be careful to the price of business center (we paid a lot of money for copies)...

I do recommand this hotel, you the japanese quality is very good.

PS: don't miss if you can to eat at tepaniaky restaurant (be careful it's very expensive but delicious)

We stayed in sept 2013.
The good
First impressions were really good, hotel lobby is very impressive.
We liked the location, nice neighbourhood and easy tram ride to centre.
We enjoyed a cocktail in the 23rd bar. The staff there were excellent and friendly.

The bad
On check in no detail of what the amenities of the hotel were, eg when breakfast was served, where and at what cost. Where the leisure centre, spa is ....just basic info.

It was my husbands birthday and on check in we were advised that we were being upgraded to a superior room. We were thrilled. First impressions of the room were good. The bathroom was nice but the view of the rear/SIDe of the hotel was a little underwhelming. ( I had been hoping for a nicer view based on reviews)
When we checked out the bathroom we noticed that the wall mounted tv wasn't working. The controls on the wall were very
worn and it was obviously in need of repair.(the bathroom door also seemed swollen and wouldn't open/close easily) I phoned reception and they told me they would send someone. 2 hours later no one arrived so we headed out. On our way back I enquired if tv had been sorted. The receptionist said again she would send someone. But next morning still nothing done. Finally after my third time asking we were told the tv was beyond repair and would need to be replaced. We were offered a move to another room which we declined as by that stage we were checking out next morning. The reception staff were cold and clinical in their apologies. I expected way more from a 5 star hotel.

Finally I found that unless you are eating in one of the restaurants or you pay the fee to use the leisure centre basically there are no free communal amenities for guests. The lobby is not an area conducive to sitting reading a book and the canal terrace can
only be reached via one of the restaurants.
I would try ond of the other hotels in future
