“Lovely hotel in Amsterdam!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

My husband and I stayed for a night at Hotel Okura at the beginning of April. The hotel is located at some distance from the historical city centre in a relatively quieter area. We took the tram to get to the touristic and shopping districts. The service at the hotel was great - professional but friendly, and the room was very comfortable and bright. It had many modern touches, we espcially enjoyed having a Nespresso machine in our room. We had both dinner and breakfast at the hotel and were impressed by the quality of the food overall. We had been told by our Dutch friends that the Japanese restuarant at the Okura is probably the best in Amsterdam. However, we chose to try out the Serre Restaurant instead and were impressed by the creative fusion cuisine. We had room service for breakfast the next morning and loved the Belgian waffles we ordered. All in all, we enjoyed our stay!

Stayed for 3 nights over the April Bank holiday weekend.
From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't be more helpful, check in was quick and easy and the receptionist gave us a map and highlighted the key tourist areas of the city and recommended a few quieter places which proved really useful whilst out and about. We had a lovely corner room on the 16th floor with amazing views of Amsterdam. The bar on the 23rd floor really is a must... although not cheap the view and lovely staff really make it worth the money! Cant recommend Hotel Okura enough. We will certainly be back!

This is an impressive and beautiful hotel that is never less than utterly exquisite from the moment you hit the spacious lobby through to the modern and well equipped room. The Health Club was delightful as was the lobby bar and its ever so helpful and friendly staff. I was made to feel very much at ease very quickly.

A couple of minor disappointments:
1) Breakfast was good....but at over £30 per head should have been excellent.
2) I got close to having an argument with a receptionist over a video rental charge which was unnecessary.

Overall, this is a very decent hotel with much to recommend it and I would happily stay here again.

With all the new trendy hotels opening these days that try to tap into the new, boutique, hip Millenial set, it's nice to find a hotel that caters to those who prefer a timelessness to the hotel's interior appointments. You won't find color changing lights, the soundtrack to Buddha Bar, Philippe Starck furnishings, or 3-D printed knick-knacks decorating the interior. There is a time and place for all these things, but this isn't it.

You will find a classically designed lobby with sheer drapery lining the walls, warm stone and wood finishes and elegant floor lamps with paper/hide shades and elegant, simple lines. Service is very warm, friendly and accommodating. It looks like the rooms have gone through a recent renovation and there are many little touches that are very thoughtful and charming. For example, there are little nightlights in the walls along the circulation paths to the bathroom. The only drawback is that the color quality of these night lights is much more blue than I would like, but I recognize that this is a personal preference. The millwork of the desks and the beds are very simple, but with a beautiful worn finish on them that will not fall out of fashion. There are two lovely little sculptural elements on the headboard that give a quirkly, yet artistic flair to the simplicity of the room. The room lighting controls are conveniently located by the bed and clearly marked, which surprisingly, is not that common in many hotels. The night reading light is accessible and adjustable to the guest which is also much appreciated.

The view is nothing short of spectacular, with close proximity to the canal and parks. It is also a very pleasant walk to the Albert Cuypmarkt where we enjoyed freshly made stroopwafelen and the sight of beautifully smoked fish lining the street and many fun arts and crafts to take in and browse through.

I took advantage of the spa services and the sauna. Both were amazing and well appointed. The Hanakasumi service was just what I needed for some pampering after a long week. I had caught a little cold just before I arrived in Amsterdam, and I informed the practitioner of this, and she added a little scented oil with mint and rosemary on a towel and laid it on my chest while she finished the Hanakasumi and it was perfect to calm my cough and to more fully relax to enjoy the massage.

I will definitely want to return in full health to more fully explore the area. I loved the placement of the hotel, which is in the Pijp neighborhood and away from the tourist attractions so it's much quieter and locally oriented. If you want local experiences, this is a fantastic location. We found a little restaurant with the unlikely name of "Dopey's Elixer" and it was just a fun, corner dive bar with very friendly staff and a nice selection of local brews. For first time visitors, take note to pay extra attention to the bike lanes and to look out for bicyclists the same way you would for cars. Living in NYC, this is something I have learned and it's somewhat second nature, but the degree to which bicyclists use the road in Amsterdam is admirable and much more organized than anything we have in the states, and you will not be looked too kindly upon if you inadvertently wander into the bike lane thinking it was part of the sidewalk. It is paved in mauve colored bricks, but it can be difficult to differentiate from the sidewalk in parts. Just remember to keep an eye out.

I will be back!

Fantastic service. The staff was very keen to help us out. We've got an upgraded room on the 14th floor with a great view over Amsterdam.

If you choose to have an excellent and much cheaper breakfast, there are 2-3 places (le pain quotidien, Omelegg) just a few minutes walk north on Ferdinand Bolstraat.

Best hotel in Amsterdam, no contest. I booked 2 days and ended up staying a week, just to try all the amazing restaurants. Ciel Blu is immense, even their dessert presentation will blow you away. Try the gratin oysters.

I'd never had Teppanyaki before, and only visited because their other Japanese restuarant was fully booked. Little did I know this place was among the top Teppanyaki experiences in the entire world! Leave yourself a few hours to get the full experience. It's immersive.

I also had the best massage of my life (shiatsu) in the spa - but book well in advance. Their hours are tight and their availability is extremely limited. If you can manage to get a booking, you will be amazed. It rebooted my entire body.

The rooms are pretty standard for a five-star, but that's not what the Okura is about. The Okura is about total service. Late checkout? No problem. Best restaurants in town? Obviously. Is there a reason to even leave the hotel? If you can afford it, not really. This place is perfection.

Room Tip: Okura is a tall hotel. In Amsterdam, that's powerful! Try to grab a room on a high floor so you...
