Nice place, great location, wear & tear

I stayed for almost a week at the Krasnapolsky at the beginning of August, starting with Gay Pride weekend. The hotel was packed, as was Amsterdam. The hotel staff were courteous and professional, but there were so many guests that even simple requests involved a 5-20 minute wait. Once you got to the desk, staff were very attentive. The hotel is in a great location off the Dam. The rooms I stayed in were quiet and pleasant, though small. The hotel as a whole may be 5-star, though I would give it 4. Some of the rooms really are 3.5 stars--quite pleasant but not a 5-star experience. The breakfast buffet is very nice. The hotel rents bikes, but they charge more than the going rate. I asked for a more in-depth guide to events than the regular tourist material, and two concierge staff had no idea what to suggest. When I showed one of them TimeOut Amsterdam, she was genuinely surprised. The overall impression was that the hotel was used to dealing with masses of guests, and so the personal touch is not there. Again, perfectly nice, but not 5 stars.

Perfect location

The hotel is right in the center of things, yet the room was spacious and quiet. The concierge was very helpful. The only problem was that we could not regulate the water temperature in the shower which made showering unpleasant.

five day city visit

My husband and I tacked a 5 day stay in Amsterdam to a business trip. The desk staff was very helpful especially helping us with WiFi.. The concierge made useful and good recommendations. Our room was in the new wing and back from the street. It was quiet even with the window open. It was easy to walk to many restaurants and to the trolleys for access to all the sights.

Great Location, great staff

We had a lovely time at the NH Krasnapolsky. The staff was friendly, the concierge is super helpful. We got chosen as guest of the day and they gave us chocolates, dutch wafers and a coupon for the bar. The bartenders in the hotel bar make amazing cocktails, don't waste your money going to the bars outside for drinks.Loved this place!
