Mixed review. More good than bad.

The location is very good, central. On the Dam Square. Close to Palace, Red Light District, the Jordaan. First room was very bad. Old, out of date room in center of building, i.e. no views. Upon request, moved us to much better room (#217) with a view over Dam Square. A little noisy since it looks out over the busy street below, so keep that in mind. Hotel / front desk was a little busy and chaotic, e.g. couldn't find my reservation, but in the end, everything worked out OK.

Perfect Location

The hotel is about a 5-8 min. walk from Central Station and the walking wasn't bad at all. We got in at about 11AM and our room wasn't ready which was understandable because the site clearly states that it's not until 4PM. The reception stored our things away and we walked to a sandwich place next door to grab a bite to eat. We came back in 15 minutes and they told us that our room was ready when we came back. The room was clean but small which is not a surprise for European standard. The coffee machine makes coffee which is pretty good and complimentary so we din't really have to buy coffee outside the hotel. They also had no issues to give us more. The best thing about the hotel is it's location because you walk out of the hotel and you're right on DAM Square. All the sites are a walking distance. They offer fee internet in the Business center so you don't have bring your laptop with you. My husband and I would definitely stay here again.

Hotel in the center of it all!

First this hotel is in a prime location for exploring Amsterdam. It's located right in the center of town in Dam Square with a tram stop out front, great for getting to other areas of town. The staff gave us excellent service[...]. [...] was extremely helpful at working out this problem and we were able to get our suite overlooking the Dam. The Hotel rooms were very nice with comfortable King sized beds and large bathrooms. This hotel really made our stay in Amsterdam enjoyable. They even gave us a complementary bottle of champagne for our Honeymoon. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Amsterdam.

In the middle of it all...

Had a very nice suite. Great bathroom (important when you've traveled long distances ), very clean, staff was very nice and accomodating. Right in the middle of town a short walk from Centraal station, which travels all over the netherlands and farther countries as well.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

the main shopping area is a block away and goes on for blocks. Also the infamous red light district is not far, but also more family friendly areas are a short distance.

Amazing hotel and in the best location

The staff are super friendly and the location is superb. Dam Square and the Tram stop is just outside your door. The train train/bus station is only a 10 minute walk away so you get basically everywhere without a car. There are lots of restaurants and shop around so you don't have to go very far to see the city cause your right in the middle of it. Even though you are in the middle of the city, the rooms are quite and clean. There is a computer room with free internet and printer. It was very convenient. We are very happy with our stay and the hotel. We would definitely look up Swissotel for our future travels.

Fabulous in every aspect..

For our 40th wedding anniversary and first return visit to holland after 50 years,we chose Swissotel as a modern, deluxe boutique non-smoking home.. located right in the centre of old Amsterdam. our queen bedroom was perfect, from the welcome letter and complimentary bottle of wine with nibbles-to the Nespresso coffee machine which we used every day.Our room was quiet,the spotles bathroom included a deep bath-cozy- for two..Amsterdam is a very lively place,we mostly walked everywhere, but also used the trams from right opposite the hotel. We rolled our 40 kilo of luggage to the hotel - from Centraal station in about 10-15 minutes,no problem.All the hotel staff were very friendly and helpfull,they speak various languages and are happy to assist with anything at all,in fact we 'lost' our visa card in an ATM.. and they assisted us with the process to obtain emergency funds..all with good humour,patience and no charges for the phone calls..We were treated like Royalty and definitely will revisit Swissotel Amsterdam

Great Location, Solid Service.

Wonderful location, very central to the old city. Easy to stop in for a break and then go out again to explore the town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are smaller than what we have in the USA, but were a good size for Europe. Location was key!! Easy to get to the sites, restaurants, and shopping and public transportation too.
