Check in was fine and staff helpful, no offer of assisting with bags to the room though. Check out was painfully slow and the front desk team really didn't seem to think that is was an issue. Probably won't return to the hotel any time soon after this rather slack attitude to service.

If you like Art Deco Hotel and to be in the centre of the city but not in crowded place - this is your hotel. Kind reception, tea facilities, big bed, nice view from the windows. The only small problems - trams which are ringing to the cyclists.

We were pleasantly surprised by the American and will make it our home in Amsterdam at all future trips. The location couldn't be beat -- right on the canal 5 minutes from the museums and the 9 Streets. The concierge David and front desk staff went out of their way to be helpful to us every day. Plus, the restaurant...

Spent three nights here and had nothing to complain about, we felt we got value for money. Receptionists were very helpful. We did our research before arriving so had a plan for what we wanted to do, the staff could answer any questions we had. Travelling to and from the airport was easy and took under 30 minutes using the...

Hotel - Great looking building at a good location. Outside it appears pompous, inside is rather simple and rooms could be updated. Location - Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Boats stop directly in front (during my stay there happened to be no cruises available at this stop). 30 minute walk to Central Station. Entry / Exit - You will...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and review posting. We regret that several aspects of your star were not up to par and apologise for these mishaps. A stained towel and inappropriate attitude by staff is not acceptable. In such cases, overpriced is a befitting term because any charge would be overpriced. We consider it very sportsmanlike that you...

This is a stylish, very well appointed hotel at the heart of the city and with fantastic staff and service levels. The maitre d'hôtel is top quality. The dining room is Art Deco beauty - one of the high spots in Amsterdam. The bar is quietly refined. We spent New Year there and it was fantastic.

This hotel is located near the Leidseplein, very central and a few steps from the hotel entrance there are bus, tram and boat stops. Amsterdam can easily be explored on foot, and this hotel is 10 mins walk from the Rijksmuseum as well as the Vondelpark and 20 mins from the Dam square. The lady on reception was very friendly,...

Lovely hotel. First the Pros: the staff upon checking in was very friendly. Because we opted for a room with a shower, we were given a lovely suite on the first floor with a large balcony. Everyone was very accommodating, and we took advantage of the pillow menu, and need for more towels (as we had only been given 1)....
