“Typically smart business/upmarket hotel”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We've stayed here a couple of times, and whilst it's decentralised location isn't the best, it certainly ticks the boxes for service and facilities. The Okura tip-toes between luxury and business and tries to maintain attraction for both tourists and conference go-ers. And on the whole it succeeds. Call me a sucker but the heated toilet seats in the bathroom are fun, and if you use the executive floor - the lounge is great for scooby snacks and free booze! Breakfast is a pretty palatial affair but best consumed when you have a bed and breakfast deal - at 32 euros per head its one of the more expensive buffet breakfasts you can find!!

The tram stop is just round the corner and gets you into the main tourist drag in 10-15 mins. the airport is easily accessed from either Amsterdam central (followed by the number 25 tram) or walk round the corner to the Rai.

Overall...It's pricey but great. I've stayed in the Dam a few times and this is definitely the best.

Another great stay at the Okura. It's a little but of a trek into the centre (25mins on tram) but the rooms are great. I would stay however without breakfast option unless you get a deal 32 euros for a buffet brekkie is crazy

Nice location on the side of a water way. For me it was an excellent location. Reception staff very welcoming and a quick process to check in and out. Room spec was good with a good working area and plenty of power. Comfortable sized room with a view out over the city. I would certainly go back again.

Our first time here was a five night stay. A great restaurant (2Stars), beautiful suites, quiet location. Free Internet that generally worked. Room air conditioning was not effective. Staff were. Not close to city center, but very easy to access via nearby tram.
Would stay here again.

I have stayed here for 2 nights in September and I was quite happy with everything. the location is a bit out of the way, but in a lovely part of Amsterdam. You can get to the city center with a tram in 15 minutes. tickets are available in the hotel or at the tram.
my room was on the 15th floor and the view was great as there not too many high buildings around, room was big enough with lots of TV channels to pick from. Service was great and the room was very clean.
only downsize was the elavator which were simply too slow so sometimes you had to wait for 15 minutes to get up to your room, but this was not a major issue. would I stay here again? I certainly hope so.

Spent 3 nights here and it was amazing. All restaurants are very good. The staff is the most helpful and nice I have seen in europe lately.
Depending on the place you are visiting, it's very hard to find helpful staff. Amsterdam in general is a very nice and relaxed place to visit.

The hotel made sure we felt comfortable, gave us an Executive room upgrade and solved all of my problems in a timely manner. I had documents to print, send via courier, dinners to schedule, laundry. Everything worked flawlessly.

Room Tip: All rooms above 10th floor have a beautiful view.

Have just returned from a three day trip to Amsterdam
and we stayed at the Hotel Okura
Our first impressions were lovely nice lobby, reception area light and spacious
The reception was a little busy as so had a wait of about 10 minutes
and then we went to our room 12 floor - very nicely furnished and nice fittings, the bathroom is lovely.
Our bags were brought up after about 10 minutes
Our first night we ate in the JapaneseTeppanyaki restaurant
very nice, the cooking was a little slow and fragmented, we had booked for 8.00 but arrived at 8.15 and we did'nt get anything until around 21.30, no chef infornt of us and so we tried to watch the chef on the other side of the table.
I would ask that they encourage the chefs to interact with the diners as this would improve the dining experience.
For Wine I ordered a 110 euro bottle of red wine and it was chilled - when i mentioned it to our waitress she said that it was normal as the heat from the Teppanyaki warms it up quite quickly ,
It didnt in our case and i felt that the wine was a waste of money.
I know this wine and have it at home and it really makes a difference to the taste.
The next bottle was a recommendation from the Wine waitress it was 90 euros and perfect and room temp.
when we left we wanted to go to the main lounge bar, but it had closed.
Apart from these issues - we really enjoyed our meal
There are a number of restaurants to pick from right upto 2 michelin stars
and Europes only michelined starred Japanese restaurant.
the second night we had drinks in the rooftop bar - very nice if a little pricey
2 x G & T's
a small beer and a small lemonade was 47 euros
we went out for dinner and came back at 12 again wanted to go to the lounge bar but it was closed.
The last night we again went out for dinner and came back at 22.58 and we went to the lounge bar but we were told that they were just closing and that we should go to the roof top bar.
we did'nt fancy going to this quite formal bar and so went to bed, not an ideal end but hay ho.
would have been nice to have been offered drinks in the lounge as we residents.

on the whole - I would stay here again as the location and rooms are lovely
Service is good but could be more attention to detail focused.
note the concierge were great and very helpful.
