A strange review, as we never managed to get to the hotel. In short, I had booked this hotel and my wife and I were truly looking forward to staying there for a very special wedding anniversary. I contact them before arrival, only to be told in a very brusque manner, that we were expected the previous day. I politely asked to be put through to Reservation Manager only to be told that the department was shut! 5* hotel shuts at 5.00pm? The next rude person was someone on the Front Desk who told me that the 2* MIchelin restaurant had nobody on duty to attend to my reservation.

Well by that time, this client was ready to cancel the entire reservation. Spoke with Duty Manager who took my cancellation, but did not seem shocked by the lack of care shown by his staff. We re-booked at another nearby hotel and I will review this hotel on our return.

Room Tip: Seems they have let the hype get to their heads! Just contrast this with Claridges in London or the...

Dear Sir,

It saddens me to read that we did not manage to meet your expectations over the telephone prior to your stay with us. Our Reservations Department does operate 'office hours' however the Front Desk is more than capable to attend most reservation enquiries.

The reason why you were not able to be put through to Bord'Eau restaurant is due to the fact that they are closed on Mondays. Our policy would usually be that we note down your contact details and get in touch as soon as the booking office opens again. On most cases our Concierge will be able to advise about availability however when the Bord'Eau approaches full capacity the Concierge does need to consult with the restaurant itself prior to confirming anything.

We do sincerely hope that we get to welcome you to the hotel in the not too distant future and I would like to invite you to make your arrangements through myself in order for me to personally overlook your stay.

Kind regards,

Jeroen Bronsveld

Stylish and classy hotel with a very good location, rooms are big, bathrooms are huge! My corner room was overlooking the canal, bed was very comfortable.
Staff is friendly, the Brasserie was just ok for breaksfast but better for lunch. Did not try the Bord'eau restaurant. The lobby and the bar are nice and it comes with a fumoir for cigar lovers.
So it may be pricey but if you can get a promotionnal rate for a canal room, go for it !

The hotel is located near the center of Amsterdam, and is certainly one of the best in town. From here, one can walk to most places worthy a visit.
Every part of the hotel is elegant and the rooms are an interesting mix of traditional decor and hi-tec appliances ( Bose sound system and iPad supplied for use of complimentary WiFi ). The staff is very helpful and friendly. The bar is nice, but a bit expensive - like in most hotels. To get a good room rate, book early.

The hotel is very well situated and is elegantly furnished. Service is professional and friendly. Rooms are rather spacious and the beds are comfortable. Parking fees are exaggerated. Breakfast was good.

We stayed here for five nights in January and the only thing the hotel's wonderful staff were unable to provide was decent weather! However, the doorman was always ready with an umbrella. We had a wonderful room overlooking the Amstel and there was always something to watch. We went to see the concierge when we arrived and he was one of the most helpful we've encountered. He managed to get great concert tickets at the last minute - and brought them to us personally. He recommended the museum pass, as well as multiple-day tram pass, both of which we used a lot. He actually listened to our interests and made recommendations accordingly. During his absence, his colleague was equally helpful and efficient. The hotel is very well located, close to tram stops and also within walking distance of several points of interest. Whenever we left the hotel, the doorman would ask us our destination and recommend the best way to get there and also various things to look out for en route.

The restaurant had just received a second Michelin star, but unfortunately it was closed when we arrived and only re-opened the last night of our stay. By the time we got around to making a reservation, it was fully booked, so we weren't able to try it.

The gym was also being renovated during our stay, but a temporary gym had been organized and it was fine.

The only small annoyance was the lighting system in our room, which we never did really work out.

Breakfast is served in the more casual dining room overlooking the Amstel. One evening, we had an early dinner in the bar/lounge area, also overlooking the Amstel. Both locations are very pleasant for more casual dining. Staff were very efficient and friendly, but not overly familiar.

We fully intend to return to this hotel.
