seven night stay

Room was not available for early check-in but was worth the wait. Nice seating area with table, comfortable bed, plenty of storage, large bathroom with tub and shower,wall safe, view of fountain and street. A lot of street noise from entertainment district at night with window open, much better with closed window. Canal view rooms would be quieter. Excellent location with major sights within walking distance and terrific tram service (5 lines)steps away. Airport bus stops on other side of the canal. Breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of choices including made-to- order eggs and iced proseco all served in a fantastic art deco room. (Both hotel and restaurant are listed as sights to be seen in the Amsterdam guidebook we bought in the states.) Be sure to ask about the discounted breakfast price at check-in. Staff was professional and friendly. Our room was serviced early and checked by senior staff after servicing. Overall excellent value.

Splendid Anniversary start before Cruise.

We were quite comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was in close proximity to the various sites and canal boat, tram, bus entrances. We would definitely stay again at this hotel if we return to Amsterdam.

American Hotel Amsterdam

Great location. Hotel staff very helpful. Our room, which was one size up from the base level, was decent size by European standards and had a balcony overlooking a canal. The rooms could use some updating. One major annoyance was that at checkout they converted our incidental charges from Euros to Dollars (at a very fqvorable rate to them) without saying anything. Any other time I have had an establishment want to do this in Europe they have said they do this and they gave me a chance to opt out.

great location

Convenient location right next to several tram stops. (Very easy to use; cash accepted on board and change made.). Don't bother with airport shuttle or cabs; just take the train and then tram--cheap and fast. Inexpensive RT canal tours available right below the hotel. Lovely ride that takes about 2 hours. Can hop off at museum stops too, or stay on for asnlong as you want.

Great Place 2 Stay

You cant get a better location, nothing was more then a 15 minute walk away and there is a lot to do right there in the Leidseplien square. The hotel staff was friendly and ready to help- but help was not needed. The rooms were kept very clean and the furnishings were newer, the building was well maintained and had a steam room and a gym. public transportation- bus train and canal boat- all stop right outside the hotel. Showers were hot and had pressure. Did not have a great view- window looked over an interior roof area. No microwave in the room, there was a hot pot for tea or instant coffee that worked great. I did not try room service.

to get around in Amsterdam, remember the layout of streets and canals are circular, not block style like in the states. 4 right turns will not get you back to your starting point

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.

When in AMS, take the country tour on one of the bike companies which lasts about 4 hours. Wonderful way to see more of this beautiful city.
