Royal Amsterdam Hotel

The Dutch have a term "Gesellig" which probably translates best as "warm and cozy". That's not a bad description of the Royal Amsterdam Hotel.

Although only about a decade old, the hotel has all the architecture and dark tones of a true Amsterdam hotel. It's certainly quite different from the mid priced chain hotels that are the only real alternative in this community.

The Royal Amsterdam is located in the middle of town so walking to coffee shops, bakeries, and meat markets is no problem. At the same time, parking is available underground and just a step from the elevator (for a $5 per night charge) or across the street a surface lot that is free.

So for convenience, comfort, and just downright coziness, this hotel is real treasure to find in a small quaint community.

From 930pm the night of arrival to the day we checked out I was impressed by the customer service. Beverly was the person who checked us in and out! At check in she sincerly thanked us at least twice for choosing their hotel to stay in. She made us feel that she truly appreciated us choosing them! The next morning she was ready at 7am to greet us as we enjoyed the continental breakfast. She asked us how we slept. Then we started talking about grandchildren. We felt like she was an old friend! On Sunday at check out she asked how our stay was and again thanked us again for choosing Royal Amsterdam. I told her I was very impressed on the customer service there! Actually all of the shops and restraunts in Pella excelled in this area. I teach a class on customer service for the business I work for and I will be using this as an example during my class! We were truly impressed!

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the canal. So pretty! The only thing is at night when the bar/restraunt c...

While looking for a comfortable and accessible location for a H.S. group of friends to get together for a couple days away, I had a "Why not Pella?" epiphany. It was centrally located for most of us, and had rooms open for the week after Tulip Time. What a great choice!
The town is clean, lovely, and friendly, with many small shops (and bakeries!) to explore, all in walking proximity to the hotel. So much better than staying in a chain hotel out on the highway!
The hotel was terrific. We had a suite with queen size bed, and other rooms with 2 queen beds, all very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful with any questions and recommendations requests we had.
We are all in agreement that this hotel is an absolute gem, and highly recommend it for business travelers or vacationers alike!

We stayed here as part of a group for the Tulip Time Festival and we were not disappointed. The hotel is very elegant, the bed and the pillows were the most comfortable I've experienced anywhere, and the location can't be beat. It has a typical European continental breakfast, no hot foods, but it was elegant and tasty. The town of Pella is a European experience right here at home.

This hotel is very comfortable for the business traveler. It has a Dutch theme and reminds me of staying at a Bed and Breakfast. It has comfortable new beds and all the linens have been updated and new. It also has fast internet which is a huge plus for the regular business traveler. I like the proximity to the downtown area and it's easy to walk to the many restaurants. There is also a great restaurant and bar located in the hotel, so when it's cold out you don't have to go outside. I would highly recommend this hotel for all travelers.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side are very quiet.

Sherrie and the folks at the Royal Amsterdam in Pella, Iowa are wonderful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the continental breakfast is top notch with plenty of choices, the restaurant is good, and the atmosphere most welcoming. I go to Pella on business often, and staying at the Royal Amsterdam is the next best thing to being home! The location cinches it, being right down town in walking distance to most everything.

I drive through Pella about 4 time a year and have typically stayed at one of the chains by the highway. This time I drive in to town and stayed at the Royal Amsterdam Hotel. The hotel is about one block off the square and has indoor parking. The room was very large with an additional sitting area. The bed was very comfortable and the room nicely appointed. The staff was friendly. They had old fashioned keys for the rooms. The hotel was very quiet (granted there were only about 6 rooms occupied). They have a good restaurant/bar as well. The whole experience was nice. I will definitely stay there again.
