“Good Hotel but Take Be careful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

The hotel location are awesome, just next to Dam Square many restaurants and cafes around the hotel. The room facilities was good there is a Coffee maker and huge TV screen with a lot of good TV channels. the only problem with this hotel is the cleaning staff they are not professional at all, they never cleaned the room well and they never refill the minibar, i found that one of room service staff tried to open my safe box because when i came to the hotel after my lunch the safe box was already blocked some one was trying to randomly enter a pass code then the manager came and open it so the hotel can open the safe box any time not only you!

The hotel is a short walk to the Amsterdam Central train station from the airport and next to the Royal Palace. The front desk staff great you at check-in with a hot towel to help you warm up quickly. THE BEST THING EVER! The staff is friendly and even offer pillow selection before turn down service. I was celebrating my birthday. They manager gave me a bottle of champagne and snacks as a present to thank me for choosing to spend my special day with them. Oh, and our room had a real door bell - too cute.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of Dam Square.

Stayed 3 nights between 16-19 January 2014 as a couple. Great location on Dam Square. Walking distance to nearly EVERYTHING.Hotel and rooms are very well decorated and clean. Beds and pillows are really very comfortable. Nice and helpful staff. Maybe the only negative point is that the walls are very thin so that noise can cause problems for some guests. Our late check out request was turned down on sunday, even though we wanted to pay the extra charge.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at Swissôtel Amsterdam.
I appreciate you for pointed out our very central location, which is a stone throw away to all wonderful things Amsterdam has to offer.
I am very sorry we were unable to grant you a late check out. We always do our utmost to grant any preferences and requests, however this is subject to availability and therefore we are not able to guarantee this.
We are greatly looking forward to your return to the hotel in the not too distant future.

The hotel is within walking distance from the central train station.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with directions, suggestions, etc.
The rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. All of the necessities were available, from hair dryer to turn down service with chocolates and bottled water.
The hotel was right in the center of town and in walking distance to all attractions, restaurants, bistros, etc.
The security was excellent - you needed your room key to get into the elevator and the staff was available 24/7.
The small drawback, was there was not lobby area to congregate and visit in, but the attached bar/restaurant was available and you could stay as long as you pleased.

Superb clean, modern hotel in the heart of the city. The staff have 1st class knowledge of the city & are very friendly. I have stayed in Amsterdam many times & this is by far the best hotel I have stayed in.

Came to Swissotel in Amsterdam from a Best Western in Paris, and a Luxury Hotels of the world in Lausanne.
This hotel rocks in every way, from reception,to room service, to bell boy and the guy that polishes your shoes. Nothing is a problem, and if it is a problem they make you feel like it's not a problem. The room was huge, I think we were upgraded, the beds are massive, you get a choice of luxury pillows, there's even an espresso machine and an iPad Dock in your room, along with a big flat screen tv. Situated as close to town centre as you could be, perfect in every way. Try it you'll love it.
