very nice, but overpriced

The location is good and the staff was friendly and helpful. There are several lovely outdoor spaces and nice places for coffee or a drink. The room was small and there weren't many places to put clothes or other things. Also for the price a buffet breakfast or afternoon tea should be included.

Hotel Pulitzer

The Hotel Pulitzer is on a beautiful canal and in the perfect location to walk all of Amsterdam, without the hustle bustle of staying in the middle of the center. The adjacent neighborhoods of the Nine Streets and the Jordaan give you lots of choices for good but reasonably prices dining. Although the hotel is listed as a 5 star, I think most Americans would consider it more of a 4 star because our standards are different. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We've stayed there several times and never had a major complaint even when we book a less expensive room through a travel web site.

Perfect 3 day break

My wife and I arrived on Friday afternoon and were very pleased with the hotel, the staff and their restaurant. They also recommended two other restaurants which were exceptional, an Italian and an Indonesian.

Boutique Hotel in Great Location

This is the 2nd time we stayed at the Pulitzer Hotel. It is beautiful and the staff is extremely accommodating. The hotel is in walking distance to Dam Square, great shopping, restaurants, the tram and the Red Light District.

Great hotel

Very comfortable, upscale hotel - fantastic location - right near the Jordaan district which has a great vibe and an excellent array of restaurants. Very helpful concierge staff. Would highly recommend. One note - the price for WiFi is unreasonable - but they did have free internet terminals in the lobby and business center for guest use.

Greeted and serviced by the friendly and knowledgable staff. Historical, artistic and beautiful views from every part of the hotel. Between 2 canals, Best location for a tourist, every big attraction is walkable from here. Concierge had the best touristy and unique suggestion for us!

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Get a 24 hour tram pass! Hop on and off all over the city for 7 euro and save the walking for in the museums. But don't miss out on strolls down the canals

Very good luxury hotel

Excellent room, large by European standards. The room is above the lobby area, I can't speak about rooms in the converted houses. I especially like having a choice between air conditioning and an open window. The courtyard let in lot's of sun, and kept out most noise. My main gripes: no in-room coffee/tea, and far overpriced wifi/internet access. I didn't try it, so I can't comment on speed or quality. The downstairs internet terminal is good, and free. However it is unavailable when the business center is used to store luggage during a rush. I don't often stay in luxury hotels, my preference being a good B&B or small hotel. However, the service here was just about worth the price. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful.

Fantastic city break! Enjoyed every minute!

Hotel location is excellent! Cafes in the Jordaan area are full of character. Restaurants were absolutely magnificent. The hotel Apotek restaurant was a great finding. Highly recommended.

Wonderful experience!

Wanted a quick getaway with my teenage daughter over spring break and did not have lots of time to plan. This hotel had the perfect location, tucked away seemlessly in a residential neightborhood, near GREAT restaurants and small, funky store shopping. Staff could not have been more friendly or helpful -- helped me find an Easter surprise for my daughter. Recommended great restaurants and transportation savings. Got us great Cirque seats.
