“Vieda Shelley The lap of luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

We spent three nights at the Okura arriving somewhat exhausted and bedraggled. However, the staff greeted us as though we were long lost relatives and relieved us of our luggage. The service was very quick, helpful and friendly without being in the least bit overbearing. The room was so comfortable we hardly wanted to leave in the mornings. We didn't have time to visit the sauna or swimming pool because we spent so much time in the galleries. That said it's a fair walk to the museums but it gave us some exercise.

Room Tip: Our room rate did not include breakfast or the health club. It might be worth looking into before bo...

I strongly suggest this hotel in light of the fact that:
- all the personnel is very very good and nice;
- the rooms are organized in a way that you do not feel oppressed, like happens in many other hotels;
- the cab service in front of the hotel is very efficient;
- the food is very good.
Quality/Price excellent.

When traveling for business or pleasure, whether luxurious or spartan, one expects your lodging to meet expectations. The Okura Hotel in Amsterdam is a fabulous 5 star type hotel. This was my second time at this property within a year. The staff is professional and polite. The breakfast fresh with a wide assortment of choices. The hotel restaurants are delightful. The housekeeping staff is attentive and works diligently to keep your room comfortable and clean. The gym is well appointed including weights, treadmills, lap pools, whirlpool, steam and dry saunas with a cold plunge pool. The location is convenient for both pleasure and business. The Concierge desk is more helpful than you can imagine, especially Lex.

Room Tip: A corner suite overlooking the Amstel canal on the executive floors provides a great view of the wes...

My family (wife and two young kids) and I stayed at the Okuraast weekend and encountered a fantastic stay. The rooms are very very spacious, and we opted for two connecting rooms. The linens are very soft and feel luxurious, the decor in the rooms is best described as with earth tones, a good mix between classic and modern. All Okura's restaurants are fantastic but we had a private dinner appointment with friends, so did not try ourselves.
The spa has fabulous Sothys products and treatments. The pool is large for a city hotel and the gym is extensive and complete.
The breakfast is a good choice instead of going into town. The products are freshly prepared at the buffet counter.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating. All in all a great hotel!

I've stayed several times in the Okura Hotel during the last two years. I finally decided to write down a review, as the hotel Okura deserves one! In my opinion this is Amsterdam's finest hotel. The building is a true landmark itself, it can't be missed! Did you know that the color of the roof varies with the different weather?? The staff is friendly and efficient. They are there to help you make the best of your stay.
The rooms are great, especially when staying on a higher floor, great views over Amsterdam. One of the greatest things is being able to take a bath whilst enjoying the view over Amsterdam. The beds a great with very soft linens. The hotel houses several great restaurants, I really like the teppanyaki restaurant Sazanka, if you like beef you must try the Wagyu menu!!!! On the top floor bar 23 offers the best views of the city and great cocktails! My girlfriend makes fun of me because of the fact that I love a girly drink, the Flamingo, it's a non alcoholic drink with coconut, so good!! Don't come here if you are on a budget, as with everything in life, great cars, great hotels and great girls, they all cost money ;-)

This is a very nice hotel. Lovely, appointed bathroom, excellent service, nice pool and fitness center. Room service food was very good. Great to arrive at 8:00 am and have my room ready. I would definitely recommend it.

The staff of the Okura Hotel should take a bow for their considerate service. I arrived early AM after an overnight flight for a lunch meeting. They provided free use of health club including robe, towels, etc. to take a shower, after apologizing that no rooms were available. Health club and pool were excellent. Food in the Japanese Restaurant was also excellent. I asked to look at a room, which was well appointed, clean and with free internet. I would highly recommend this hotel, even though I did not actually remain overnight.

The only drawback is the location, which is not central. So for a tourist visit to Amsterdam, a more central location (think Grand Amrath Hotel) would be better. The Okura is a bit closer to Schipol airport than central Amsterdam, however, so a taxi to/from airport is both quicker and cheaper than if staying at the city center.
