Stayed here on a business Trip February 2012 and the Crowne Plaza fulfilled all of our expectations. The check in was easy, quick and courteous, and the room was immaculately cleaned with a good range of facilities. There is a pleasant lounge area, and the bar is bright and popular with guests. The prices may seem a little steep at almost 6 Euros for a beer, but the dingy looking pub a couple of doors away charges 5. The hotel is just across the road from Amsterdam Central station, and a few minutes from Dam Square and other attractions. In the immediate vicinity there are a number of bars, steakhouses, kebab shops and cafes, and right across the road you will find Resin, one of Amsterdam's famous coffee shops. Checkout was as smooth as check in, and I will definitely consider the Crown Plaza for my next stay in Amsterdam.

Thank you for staying at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre hotel and for sharing your experiences with the travel community.
We are happy to find you were able to have a bit of fun during your stay. The hotel is indeed centrally located and in the vicinity of Central Station and all the city centre of Amsterdam has to offer. Dam Square and the Royal palace, 9 streets shopping area, red light district and many other Amsterdam novelties are within walking distance of the hotel.
Allthough the hotel is in the middel of the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam we have some great areas in the hotel to relax and unwind. We have a small gym and sauna area located on the -1 level of the hotel. We also have the lobby connect which provides you with an area where you can have a glass of wine near the fireplace, watch some television, read a book or hold a little meeting with colleagues.
We furthermore have a clublounge where, once a clubroom is booked, one can sit back and relax in a private, serene area of the hotel. Breakfast, drinks and all day snacks are served, computers and internet are available as well are magezines and family board games.
We hope on your next visit to Amsterdam you won't just consider us, but book with us. We will be looking forward to be at your service once again.
