I just checked into this hotel and I am giving this hotel a 1 star. I arrived at this hotel with 2 very heavy bags a heavy book bag and a small shoulder bag. I was sadly disappointed that as a guest, no one was available outside to assist me with my luggage. After sweating and juggling up a flight...

My only complaints were due to strange issues... we didn't receive turndown service, which is...

My husband and I stayed in the hotel during our trip to Amsterdam for a night. We were upgraded to a executive suite and I cannot express our delight at the standard of luxury the Amstel exudes. It starts from the moment you walk through its entrance and set eyes upon its opulent interiors. The weather was quite grim during...

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
