Two of the most special places to "wine & dine" in Amsterdam are located in the Amsterdam American Hotel - Hampshire Eden.

Do you fancy meeting someone famous? Both national and international movie stars have been spotted in our renown Bar Americain from time to time. Bar Americain has recently been restyled and therefore is even more popular than before amongst locals. It is also still the "hot spot" for national and international movie stars. An ideal place for VIP-spotting while drinking an award winning cocktail. During summertime the terrace offers a great opportunity to watch people.
Cafe Americain
Wine and dine among the local Amsterdam people, artists and actors. The ambiance in the dazzling Cafe Americain is dynamic and most of all cosy.

At the Cafe Americain or on the amazing terrace during the summer time, you will always feel comfortable.
Terrace
During the summertime and when the sun is shining, in front of the hotel the terrace is openend. Were you can enjoy a drink, lunch or dinner while watching the fountain and the sun.

Mostly Very Good

The price during the low season was excellent. On the plus side: location couldn't be better, staff was very friendly and helpful, there is free WiFi and use of business center, and the bed was very comfortable. Things to improve are: elevators with only one call button stopping up and down needlessly, nice breakfast/dining room but hectic due to tv tapings at night, limited bathroom amenities, mini bar electronic and charges with simple movement (taken off when I called). Still overall a nice place to stay.

Amsterdam American Hotel: a disappointing experience

A week ago we (parents and 3 adult children with partners) had 4 rooms at the Amsterdam American Hotel. According to the hotel’s publicity: “some (rooms) have views of the canal or lively Leidse plein”. We were given 4 rooms on the first floor and 3 (THREE!) had the view on an inner court, which has a raised floor at the same level as the floor of our room, housing two enormous air-conditioning machines placed more or less in front of the window of 2 of the rooms. And right in front the window of the 3rd room there was an enormous pile of old wooden boards. Views aside, what really made our experience horrible was the fact that the inner court has been temporarily covered by a roof to enable construction work. As a result the 3 rooms get no daylight whatsoever. Given the sparse lighting available in the rooms it was like being in a deep basement, most unpleasant and completely unacceptable. We have known the Amsterdam American Hotel for years, stayed there before, and its excellent reputation was warranted. However ownership has apparently changed (Hampshire Eden), certainly not for the better. We made our objections to the rooms quite clear during and after our stay. Definitely the hotel should never have rented out these rooms unless they would have given the guest ample warning of the works outside and/or a discount. In the end the hotel’s reaction to our request for a partial refund was: “to restore your trust in us after your previous stays, we would like to re-invite you and your family for a complimentary night (4 rooms) and offer a 50% discount on the SECOND night, (availability permitting) for rooms with view either overlooking the Leidseplein and/or canal view.” “availability permitting”: with a bit of luck we could go through the harrowing experience again! We want to share our experience hoping some future guest will benefit from it and be spared our disappointing and unprofessional treatment. Obviously the manager of the Amsterdam American hotel adheres to the business mantra of the financial sector: Safeguard your bonus by tight cost cutting and any customer lost is the problem for your successor. He has succeeded. Well done!

Great Stay!

This beautiful old hotel is being remodeled, and I was originally given a room that had not been upgraded yet; also, they were doing work right outside my window so it was noisy. I called down to the desk, they immediately got me another room. The new room had already been upgraded and was bigger and brighter than my original -- they had actually bumped me up a tier at no extra charge. Throughout the stay the staff was extremely helpful, and the location could not have been better. It is within walking distance of lots of restaurants, squares, museums, & the flower market. I got a 24-hour tram pass and the tram stop is right outside the hotel door. Also there are two canal tour companies that have stops right outside the hotel door too. Free wi-fi was a bonus!

Three day break

Not a patch on what it was in the past . The cafe American staff were indifferent the service likewise. The ambience was poor. After some three decades of visiting Amsterdam and enjoying the American we will not be going back.

Great place to stay

Great location, especially for the Rijks Museum. We had an amazing huge room overlooking the square, fountains and canal. Very comfortable room, and a great bathroom with a huge bath. Staff were helpful and polite. The hotel is quite elegant and the bar/restaurant is very atmospheric/ art noveau Would definitely recommend it.

I have stayed at this hotel 3 or 4 times before and was quite pleased with it. The hotel is now dirty, noisy and under construction. The restaurant is very expensive with one of two meals ordered was uneatable.
