I'm not sure we have ever been more impressed with the staff at a hotel (especially considering the cost). Everyone was extraordinarily helpful, friendly, but not obtrusive. The building itself, and its location, are objectively perfect. But the staff made the experience what it was -- wonderful.

This hotel is a beautiful gem that I usually enjoy but it really needs better service during its busy periods. I arrived at 2:30pm and was told the room might not be ready until 5pm; thankfully it was ready by 4pm. Restaurant service was nonexistent yesterday during a busy lunch hour and the restaurant manager was rude and unhelpful. Reception also called me twice late at night with an unfriendly attitude about a credit card billing error that turned out to be their own mistake. I really like this place but my stay would have been much more pleasant with more professional and friendly service.

This hotel is amazing. They are totally service oriented and the atmosphere is unique and beautiful. Can you believe a five story atrium lobby? Stunning! Everyone you talk to is helpful and pleasant and no request goes unfulfilled. The Jr. Suite rooms are contemporary to the max with glass walls, a sitting area with sofa and chairs, a large table for eating or working, and a large bathroom with wonderful modern marble sink. They are Ecco friendly and even though their local water is great, they had water on the rooms in glass containers - no excessive use of plastic. The food in the cafe was fresh and delicious but a little slow. The main dining room was on vacation for the month of August. Spa services were extensive and there are some excellent ones you can't get in the US. Highly recommend you book some treatments and enjoy the facilities. Right in the midst of the museums, and a high end shopping district, this hotel is also a short, enjoyable walk to town. We hope to return to beautiful Amsterdam and this hotel again soon.

Room Tip: Corner Jr. suites are large and very comfortable - highly recommend you ask for one. Book spa appoi...

This hotel occupies an excellent position next to all the major museums in Amsterdam. It is very contemporary on the inside but they building itself, which is listed, is an ornate 19th century confection. On there whole the old and the new work well together and there is definitely a 'wow factor' when you first enter the hotel and first get shown to your room. But then the troubles begin. Although each room is fitted out with all the latest electronic gadgetry you need certain technological skills to operate the light system and a certain amount of physical strength to open and shut closet and bathroom doors. Make sure someone shows you how everything works. Also don't look at the door for your room number but look at the floor. The beds and the linen are perfect and the breakfast in the lobby is excellent.

Room Tip: My room on the 7th floor was unusual and comfortable.

I went on a family holiday in August 2014 to Amsterdam, my first time. We chose this hotel not knowing much about the city and from the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and comfortable! The staff were so friendly and accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. The room was beautiful, it had two floors and a lovely view. The concierge were so helpful with booking restaurants, trips and recommending places to visit. The hotel is in a wonderful area, near the Museumplein where the famous Rijksmuseum, Concertgebouw and Van Gogh Museum are situated. The pool and spa area were simply beautiful. I am already planning a visit back next year. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone planning a visit to Amsterdam in the future!
