We stayed at this luxury hotel for two nights over the New Year's. Service was outstanding in every regard. It is a bit far from the city center but getting there by public transport is not an issue (approx. 10 mins walk to the nearest tram stop). On New Year's Eve, after a delightful dinner at Yamazoto, which is the only traditional Japanese restaurant in Europe awarded a Michelin star, we went up to the classy 23rd floor bar for some drinks and to watch the fireworks over the city center through the huge glass windows. The two Michelin stars restaurant Ciel Bleu was closed for the Christmas break but they opened it for hotel guests on New Year's Eve to watch the fireworks and even provided pastry/snacks free of charge. Overall, the hotel was a bit pricey (which was to be expected though) but the exquisite experience was definitely worth it. I can highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a luxury getaway.

My wife and I had a wonderful time at this elegant hotel while attending EASL meeting. Easy access to anywhere using the tram system and the expert advice from the hotel concierge. Hotel personnel are just terrific. Meals were excellent although somewhat pricey for USA standards...it is true in the rest of Europe as well...
Excellent wifi. Rooms are comfortable, bathrooms kept clean and spacious. Place to stay in Amsterdam! Lovely place.

Very welcoming hotel with extremely polite and helpful staff. We had an executive room on the 20th floor which, as you entered the room, the curtains opened and the lights came on automatically. A digital touch screen control pad on each side of the bed to control temperature, lights, curtains etc. The bathroom had a shower with duel sprays and the toilet had a built-in bidet. There was a terrific view of the city from our room too. We had full use of the exec lounge two floors up and the swimming pool, jacuzzi and spa area was well maintained and welcoming. Highly recommended with every member of staff taking the time to say hello.

12 of us stayed here in early December for 3 nights booked through last minute. The hotel was one of the highlights of our weekend. We stayed in Executive rooms and had the use of the executive lounge which included beer,wine and nibbles. My wife enjoyed the heated toilet seat with built in wash and dry (yes for the bum) . We enjoyed the hotel so much we are looking at using other hotels within the group.

This is a very good, reliable 5 star hotel. Rooms are clean, staff is competent etc.
What is unique about this place is its restaurants. There are several extremely good restaurants there and it is nice to just go from the restaurant to your room.
What I find always a bit annoying is that many things need to be paid on top of the room like hi-speed internet, spa, breakfast etc. I did find out however that all you had to do what to book on their website and to become a member of their club to have access to the spa and other things for free.

The Okura is lovely. Our room is on a high floor with the city spread out below. Many attractions (such as the museum district) are within a 20-minute walk. Interesting shops and restaurants are nearby. The room is compact but well appointed. Beautiful bathroom--two sinks, separate bath and shower. The hotel does a fantastic turndown service. Try to get a rate that includes the buffet breakfast, which is delicious. The staff is quite helpful. The pool and spa are clean and spacious. Quite a relaxing oasis in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam is not be underestimated. I got the feel of the place and thought to myself that I am no longer in America. I checked in at Hotel Okura Amsterdam and their hotel transported me to a new place within a place! I’m a luxury diva and I high demand on the places that I stay in because when I go on a vacation, I want to feel that I really am on a vacation and comfort is of top priority. The hotel had modern interior with a touch of Japan. Their rooms were very cozy, especially the beds. Their restaurant was also relaxing and made me feel at ease while chatting with some friends. It had a great view, good food and a very accommodating staff. The spa gave me a very relaxing massage too. It had the right price to all the amenities present. Amsterdam just gave me another reason to come visit again.
