Pros: This is an amazing hotel with a great staff that is focused on your happiness. I have never stayed at a place that did such a fantastic job of making certain that your needs were attended to.

Pros: My wife and I make a great craft cocktail every night and when we travel it's something we look for a truly appreciate.
Merlijn (impossible to pronounce correctly), the head bartender at the brasserie in the hotel is simply, the best. Specific pointer, his Vesper is the best Vesper cocktail we've ever had.

Pros: Very close to public transportation. Clean and comfortable.
Cons: Somewhat sterile neighborhood - on the plus side, it is quiet, but if you are looking for convenient restaurants or bars that are *not* from the hotel itself, you may have a difficult time. No mini fridge other than minibar, and wifi may not be free
Pros: Very nice lokation and so frirndly.I Love it
Pros: The staff members were highly professional. The room was clean. The bedding was comfortable.
Cons: It is not centrally located in Amsterdam, however, it was just a few stops down the tram line from the city center.
It's a new hotel and everything is immaculate. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Tony and Suzanne,2 of the managers. When our luggage was delayed, they offered all types of help.
Pros: The room was spacious, especially by European standards.There were lovely amenities such as an electric teapot and exresso maker,bottled water and welcome chocolates. It had the most comfortable bed I've ever had in a hotel.
Cons: The hotel is not in the museum area and it was necessary to walk to the tram which was 4 or 5 blocks to get to the museums. It would have been great if a free breakfast had been offered.
Pros: The location and how clean it was.
Cons: Price for breakfast very high.
This hotel mostly caters to business travelers, but it worked well for our three day vacation in Amsterdam. We loved the proximity to Schipol and the Amsterdam Zuid train station. The hotel is very clean, modern and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again.
Pros: Great location, easy access to downtown Amsterdam. Clean, modern, comfortable and reasonably priced.
Pros: The rooms were very clean and comfortable.
Cons: Having to pay for the Internet. For this being a hotel geared toward business travelers that should be included.
The Hotel is close to the South Station which is both a Tram and a Train Station. Schiphol is 7 minutes by train and 3 euros per person. A day pass for the tram is 7 dollars per person and you can hop on and off as many times as you wish. To get to Dam Square it is about 20 minutes on Tram 5. Food is expensive at the hotel with no other neighborhood options, but you will find Amsterdam is expensive as a whole. My stay was difficult for me only because I was travelling with my elderly father, therefore walking was an issue, but otherwise, for any healthy person, the distances for walking are reasonable. There was free parking when I arrived also, but I do not know how long that will last as it was in an empty lot next door which is a construction project presently. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again, the price was excellent value, we got our room for 110 a night by bidding.
Pros: The hotel is new and the room was very nice, clean, and more than adequate. The staff were very well trained and acknowledged me every time with a ready smile and were anxious to please.
Cons: The hotel is located in the Business district in Amsterdam, therefore you must travel to any point of interest. Thankfully, it is a short walk to the South Station, which is both a Tram and Train station.
This hotel was an excellent stay especially since we got it as an express deal and did not pay the premium to stay at a decent 4 star hotel.
Pros: I enjoyed the small luxury features of the hotel. This included the nice chocolates/cookies complimentary to the room and the bath robe and slippers in the closet.
Cons: I did not like the location of the hotel. There was also a bit of construction around the site of the hotel.
A great hotel. Without exception, delightful staff. Easy access to downtown and the museum quarter via public transport. If you're happy with public transport or taking 15 minute cab rides it's a first-class option. Overall, very happy.
Pros: When bidding on Priceline the map is entitled 'Musuem Quarter-Rai Center' Be aware that this decription covers a lot of ground. The hotel I bought was EXCELLENT but a long way away from the Museums
Cons: Not happy that the map covers more area than one can easily walk in what is mostly a walking city.
because of its location (in an office area), this hotel's dining room is closed on the weekend. You can still eat in the bar but not the same. Overall, no atmosphere in this area so would only recommend this if doing business locally.
Pros: Rooms were good and towels were terrific
Cons: Not a great location - surrounded by office buildings - very sterile neighborhood. Everything closed down after 6pm.

Pros: The hotel and my room were nice. The staff is excellent,helpful and accommodating. I had a very pleasant stay here.
Cons: The hotel is a good distance from the city center. I think I remember reading ~ a 30 minute walk but it was more like ~50 minutes. Using public transportation, Ubers or taxis is a must.
Pros: Friendliness of staff.
Cons: Flexibility of staff. Overall standards do not meet Okura Tokyo.

Pros: Location and staff
Cons: Facilites, Cleanliness
Pros: The hotel was nice and the rooms were well sized. Can't really complain. Great location and price for the time of year. Bathrooms and beds were clean.
Cons: We did have to do some rearranging of the furniture to get some more space between my friend and I, and ended up finding a large amount of dust under the TV stand. Lift was out of order.
Cons: Rooms are far too small for that price. Poor furnishings, tiny bathroom, no concierge, place is in dire need of an update

Guests can indulge in massages, and JAN Eat Drink serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Cons: Seems a little impractical (wrt the bathroom facilities) for the first time user. May be one will get used to but given this was my first time, I was not very impressed.
Pros: The staff at the Amsterdam hotel went above and beyond in helpfulness. They oriented us to the city, the rail system, best restaurants, called cabs, etc. Felt like we had made friends.
Cons: The rooms are quite small., and yes, the shower is in the middle of the room. You have to see it to believe it. It's fine if you're a couple, or single. well worth it. We will always use this chain in any city we can.

Pros: It's right next to the train station. I didn't hear any trains at all through the windows. Trains to the airport leave every 15-20 minutes, and Amsterdam Centraal is one stop down as well. It's close enough to the city, but far enough for some quiet time when you want it.
Cons: The location is a bit outside of the heart of Amsterdam, but that can be good if you're tired of all the sound and lights.

All of my personal information was wrong when I checked in. The only thing they had right was my name. Beds are extremely hard. Hotel restaurant is not open for other meals other then breakfast and there are very few options to eat in the area.No room serve. Front desk gave answers to questions even if they didn't know if the answer was right. I knew the area enough to know that I was being given the wrong information and I had to make them research the correct information to my questions. My sheets were not changed while I was there b/c the same pizza stay was there from the first night. When I expressed that I was not happy with the hotel I was told to contact my travel agency.
Pros: Rooms were big and the front desk spoke English very well.
Cons: We weren't given the option to take a handicap bathroom.I had to climb over a desk to close the blackout curtains b/c the windows faces the lights of the arena & housekeeping reopened them everyday.Leftover food was not removed from room for 2 days.
Great location, great staff. Would easily recommend this hotel to anyone.
Pros: Great location right next to the train station. Easy to go both to the center of the city and also to the airport

This hotel is brand new just open May 14, rooms are nice shower and tub separate shower big enough for two adults. Cable tv with come channels in English. Parking somewhat expensive but that seems to be everywhere in Europe. Cannot comment about the breakfast didn’t have it. But I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Overall price was reasonable.

Pros: We've been traveling to different parts of Europe and the Park hotel had the most comfortable bed we slept on during our travels. The location is absolutely perfect. Max 10-15 minute walk to most attractions.. Anne Frank House, red light district, museums, casinos, cafes, parks.. Most were only 5 minutes away.
Pros: Next door to museums and across the street from canal, cruises and casino
Very helpful and professional staff and excellent restaurant on site (MOMO).
Clean, well appointed room of adequate size.
Cons: Road traffic could be heard but not a significant negative
Pros: The location is perfect. We recieved a warm welcome upon arrival, and was please try suprised at the accomodations. The bed was very comfortable, view perfect, and the room size would meet or exceed any standards. Literally the best location for a brief walk to vo delpark, museums, de hallen, red light district, and tram stops.
Cons: There is no pool, but for us we didn't care. The lobby was warm, as is standard in most of holland, but rooms are well air conditioned.
Pros: Cleaning staff was nice.
Cons: Water leaked from my ceiling onto me in the middle of the night. managenent was totally unhelpful.
Pros: Location and staff were great. Breakfast although pricey was huge! Very decent! Very clean and comfy bed. Room was modern although the "non-divided"/private bathroom may be an issue to non-couples.
Cons: Some of the toiletries where empty.
Pros: - Proximity to Amsterdam's famous museums
- Comfort of the bed
- Size of the bathroom (we got a handicapped room)
- Availability of luxurious toiletries
- Clean, well-kept rooms
- Friendly staff
- DELICIOUS hot chocolate
- Free, reliable wifi
Cons: - Room itself was a little small
- Cleaning staff arrived at 8am
Pros: From a tourist perspective the location of this hotel is very good indeed, it is just metres from the great galleries and Vondel Park, and close to Jordaan. The #197 trolley bus around the corner opposite the Van Gogh museum takes you to Schiphol in 30 minutes for 5 euro (pay as you get on), every 1/4 hour, and trams #2 and #5 take you to the main railway station.
Despite being on the relatively busy Stadhoudekade street, the hotel is quiet. The rooms are clean, very comfortable, slightly but not overly cramped, idiosyncratic in design, with air conditioning that works.
The staff are intelligently helpful, switched on, and very pleasant. I think that is a Dutch thing anyway.
I took the 'with breakfast' option. I recommend it.
All this comes in at about $210/night per room including taxes. There are plenty of cheaper places around but if you are in Amsterdam for a couple of days and want a faultless, quiet, reliable, central place to stay, this is a good candidate to consider, and worth the money if you have it.
Cons: The only thing that I wasn't keen on was the Momo restaurant that is attached to the hotel. It is a Sushi only restaurant, so if Sushi is not what you want, too bad. We ate there one evening and while the Sushi itself was no doubt excellent, it was expensive for what it was - as in my opinion Sushi tends to be. If you like a rank of chefs attending minutely to each bite, and lots of pretty waitresses regularly asking if you need anything, or don't really mind about the cost, that's fine, enjoy it and pony up liberally at the end. Otherwise, don't come to this place too hungry, or with kids, this one is for the up-market purists. There are better places nearby, serving quality food of other types for quite a lot less.
Pros: Location is great.
Standard rooms are a bit small but great for a couple.
Staff is very professional.
Concierge is great with recommendations
This hotel is in several traditionally-Dutch, canalside properties and is set in the centre of Amsterdam, 300 metres from Van Gogh Museum and the nightlife of the Leidseplein.
Pros: The building itself was lovely, very gothic with a cozy feel. The breakfast was excellent, make sure you get it included in your original price. The spa was nice and the staff was extremely helpful. We rented bikes from the hotel for a day and they were very good rides, better than our bikes at home! The mini bar is stocked daily and is FREE! We kept drinking our mini wines in the double bath tub every night. Great location, across the canal from central station. A great choice for our honeymoon stay.
Cons: Our room was on the first floor, so keeping the windows open at night for a breeze did not work out as the street noise was too loud. Our last night we noticed a small visitor in our room, a mouse, who was persistent and did not want to leave. It was our last night so we just said our goodnight to our guest and slept, it's an old building so I don't think it is an "infestation" but rather something that comes with staying in an old, large building.
Pros: Great location, friendly staff
Cons: The room was incredibly stuffy as there was no A/C. We couldn't open the windows at night because the building construction next door started promptly at 7 am and the noise was unbearable with the windows open. Would never had booked here if I knew I would get about 2 hrs of sleep per night. The price was decent but now I know why!
Pros: Close to everything including ships
Pros: Unique hotel
Pros: The Hotel Amrath is a jewel among luxury hotels--beautiful architecture inside and out; clean, spacious comfortable rooms; great accommodating staff; and centrally located so one can walk everywhere. Don't miss the gorgeous pool and spa.
Pros: A different and positive Amsterdam experience. Great location and facilities.
Pros: The building is an antique that seems to recently been rejuvenated. It's important to keep this in mind when coming here, because the place is not a modern hotel, and so some modern things may be missing. For example, the elevators could be quite awkward and I cannot imagine how the floors are handicap accessible. That said, the bathrooms were brand new and quite nice. And finally, they throw in a full, FREE mini-bar.
Cons: It's a bit expensive, and going up and down stairs can be annoying with luggage.
