I think your judgement of your experience here will depend on what you've paid. At €330 it's probably 2 star - at €120 maybe 4 star! Location is superb for walking, trams, canal tours, airport bus, taxis. Art Deco dining room is lovely and provides a great feeling of history. I thought my room was spacious but shabby. Tired decor,...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and review posting. Value for money also depends on what you compare it with and your expectations. But the decor of the room should be tidy at all times. We are therefore refurbishing dated rooms. We hope that you may take the effort to revisit us and inspect this, which may result in...

The American Hotel Amsterdam is an Old Grande Dame in the business in Amsterdam. Although management companies changed over the years the team is and feels still the same. Luxury mixed with Amsterdam humor and knowing how to treat your guests... not all the same, no , better some formal, some casual, some with long talks, some very efficient. Location...

No shortage of first-rate hotels in Amsterdam, and this one belongs in that category. Expect welcoming, good-humored staff and nice rooms in a hotel whose exterior suggests an earlier elegance. Terrific location overlooking one of the city's charming canals, the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh are an easy walk and convenient tram lines will get you everywhere else. Canal tours...

Lovely architecture, on historic register -"Cafe American" to enjoy buffet breakfast. Get discount voucher from front desk. Hotel in theater district, easy walking to restaurants and shops. Is right on canal, tour boats outside the door. But very quiet for sleeping. Room was a bit small, but comfy bed, but clean w nice amenities.

Dear Guest, Thank you for visiting Europe and choosing our hotel to stay with your friends. We appreciate your review posting. We have to alter the content a tiny bit: the original hotel was built in the 1880's indeed. However, this building was erected in 1900. All in all still an old lady. With best regards,

I liked the hotel very much - especially the sleeping quality - silence and very comfortable bed. Location and boats stop in front is great valu added. Old historical building in TOP center. I would deffinitely recommend it!

Over the years, and each time to Amsterdam, I have promised myself "one day I'll stay at this hotel". Right at the heart of the city, next to the Leidseplain, with an incredible facade. Been here done that - at last. It's an old hotel with a charm - my superior double room was specious, clean, quite, overlooking a canal...

We stayed here for 6 nights recently for a business/pleasure trip. We were limited in the hotel choices because of the IBC conference so we chose this hotel based on decent reviews and limited availability in a reasonable price range. First impression were poor.

Nicely located in a very vibrant neighborhood. very polite and cooperative personnel. reasonably sizable room. We enjoyed staying in this hotel. breakfast was excellent. Room was comfortable but noisy at night because of boats in the canal and traffic. Windows can be sealed better to reduce noise level.

From an uninspiring lobby, albeit with friendly staff, to a dismal, dated room on the 6th floor my expectations of this iconic building were soon dashed. Yes a great location, yes very clean, yes it is architecturally interesting and the art deco cafe beautiful. Even my new room on 5th floor was dark, dated and no view. Corridors dated and...

“Lovely hotel. Rooms are clean and well appointed. As prices in Amsterdam are on the higher side, our room was a bit pricey, but there wasn't anything more we would have asked for! ”

“Make sure that you get the room you expect. The pictures on the website didn't match what we got, but they took care of it without any "attitude" - very caring staff. Also, bring your OWN shampoo, conditioner, and soap. Hotel's is quite generic and didn't feel good.”
