Access, Amenities & Size

Hotel has nicely sized rooms and bathrooms. Best of all, free wireless internet throughout the hotel and in rooms, and free mini-bar usage including water, drinks and coffee. Hotel staff was courteous, professional, and helpful. Only negative was that I found the rooms a little dark, even with all the lights on. While I enjoy a cozy ambiance, sometimes it's nice to be able to really turn the lights up. Hotel is great for someone who wants convenient access to Centraal Station. And while the building is very old, everything inside the rooms was spanking new.

Short stay in Amsterdam

The hotel building is very impressive. Amenities are adequate and breakfast is excellent. My room was quite small and the washroom had a glass door that didn't lock. The room was overall clean except for some stains on the bathroom sink. The reception is a little office which only had one attendant when I was checking out, so there was a long line and seemed very inappropriate for a 5-star hotel. I had trouble parking because we were supposed to leave the car in a little spot on the street in front of the entrance and this was not very well marked from the outside. When I left I found out that parking was 50 euros per day (I was not told this before).

Grand time and the Amrath

The hotel was fantastic, the service was great. Check in was a little slow as the hotel does not have a standard lobby or desks, but everyone was quick to respond and got us anything we needed. The room was a little small but was sufficient.

It is a short walk from the Centrum train station to the Amrath. Don't bother getting a taxi unless you have more bags than you can handle for a 5-10 minute walk.

A short trip to Europe.

The hotel was beautiful and the location was perfect. There is a free mini bar in the room. The pillows are an odd shape so it took a couple nights to get used to it. Also sometimes those automatic windows would go off randomly, maybe it was a Dutch ghost. The staff was great, only one issue though. Upon checking out we were quoted 45 Euro for the cab and we specifically asked for a cab that took credit cards, however we were provided with a cab that only took cash and he charged us 58 Euro. That was a bummer, or else I would have said 5 stars. The hotel is near the central station and the red light district. Walkable distance from many touristic places.

Overall a good stay

Initially we were given a room on street level that was very noisy. They were more than happy to move us to a better room on the 3rd floor. Housekeeping was a a bit sketchy -- one day they didn't do the room until almost 5pm.

Quiet for Location

Close to the Red Light District and Central Station, this hotel is convenient as well as being quiet and comfortable for sleeping. In most cases, you can walk anywhere (which may be true of any Amsterdam hotel!) in a half hour or less. For day trips you are conveniently located to your choice of mass transit. The hotel is stately and beautiful. Reception was friendly and helpful. The concierge staff seemed to change minute to minute; their help was inconsistent. Breakfast is very expensive; go seek out the many, many choices around.

Do take a canal cruise. The small, open boats, rather than the large, many-passenger kind) can go into the narrow canals. Sure, it's just for tourists, but you get to see the city in a way you can't via the sidewalks and trolleys.

the construction features of this hotel are very interesting, unique, and plentiful. it isn't very often that one can stay in a converted, old business structure, origionally built with expense being slight consideration. staff was first class, room large, and my first ever free mini bar!

The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

First, let me preference this by saying that we enjoyed our stay, liked our room and would be inclined to stay here again. That being said, I believe that people like to have very honest assessments, so... THE GOOD: The rooms are quite spacious when compared to most European hotel rooms. And the ceilings are at least 18ft high! Beds are VERY comfortable and have warm, cozy comforters. TV is new and nice. Drapes, which are opened/closed with a nifty remote control, are of the "black out" variety which makes it very easy to sleep in late. Our room had the "City View" which also overlooked a canal and it was very picturesque. Rooms are also very quiet. The bathrooms are newly renovated and quite modern and the big, deep bathtub was definitely a plus. The staff at the hotel was also quite friendly and helpful. Location is also ideal as you can easily access the trains, canal boats or just walk to many locations. There is a restaurant and lounge on the first floor that are also convenient. Oh, and the totally free mini-bar was a huge convenience and savings!! THE BAD: The bathroom, while new and modern and chic, is not entirely functional. The toilet was in its own little room and completely seperate from the sink and bathtub area so you actually had to leave one little room and go into the other to wash your hands. Worse though was the lack of a shower curtain or any type of barrier to keep the water from splashing everywhere when showering. As I mentioned, the bath tub is lovely but you can't stand up and use the shower without flooding the floor. Also bad is the internet service. The Amrath offers free wi-fi but it is a huge pain to use. Every device requires a seperate user name as well as an impossibly long password and one must fill this info out EVERY time one opens a new browser or re-checks her email. Huge waste of time not to mention tedious and frustrating. (trust me, you'll see what I mean). Lastly, in this category, while I mentioned that the staff is friendly and helpful, the check-in procedure takes a terribly long time and there is often a long line. I also want to note here that, this property really isn't what most Americans would consider to be a 5 Star hotel. It is certainly no Penninsula, Four Seasons or even a Ritz-Carlton. I would give it about a 3.5. So, if you have visions of total luxury and grandeur, you will probably be pretty disappointed. THE UGLY: This hotel has very little in the way of a lobby. There is no where to sit while waiting to check in. Actually, the lobby almost scared me off from checking in to this hotel because it is so small and antiquated (not in a pretty or charming way). The hallways are not all that much better. The red carpets that line the hallways could use some pampering, if not total replacement. And, the hallways kind of smell... Bottom line: This is a nice hotel. It's in a good location. It has really comfortable beds in nicely appointed rooms and a helpful staff. It is not, however, 5 Star quality. If you like all the pros and are ok with the cons AND you get a decent room rate, you shouldn't be disappointed.

Buy a 24hr pass for the Hop on/Hop off canal boat cruise. You can get on and off at almost every major attraction (Anne Frank Huis, Van Gogh Museum, Rembrandt Museum, etc) and you'll love cruising the canal in between stops.

The hotel was fabulous. It was near the train station and very central. We upgraded our rooms and they were huge. Also, it had a free minibar. Staff was good except concierges did not give the best advice for restaurants. Janet
