perfect retreat

This hotel exceeded expectations! It is within walking distance of the main train station. They greet you with a warm towel, and water or orange juice. The rooms are large and modern with exceptional comfort and convenience. Ask for an upper floor in order to not hear street noise. We will stay there again without a doubt!

Anne Frank's house is a fairly short and scenic route where you cross three beautiful canals.

Wonderful time....

Arrived early on a Sunday morning and was able to check in immediately.... Got great directions from the front desk staff during entire visit.... all four of us remarked about the cleanliness of the room, the great location right on Dam square, and the competence of the people there. Will go there again.

Great Location!

Great location for the hotel, right on Dam Square. Easy walking distance to many attractions. Tram stops right by the hotel for easy access everywhere else. Rooms were rather small, though.

Swissotel Amsterdam - a good choice

Location of the hotel is ideal. We especially noticed that when exploring different areas - where we were was perfect. You can walk to anywhere of interest - we never used public transportation. Came from the airport into town with the train, and you can easily walk to hotel from Amsterdam Centraal Station (main train station). Hotel rooms are pleasant and clean, comfortable beds, super clean bathroom with granite tile flooring and granits sink surround. Conveniences we're used from the U.S. that you often don't find in European hotels. Some nice added touches like warmed towels as the towel rack is a towel heater at the same time. Grohe shower fixtures where you actually set the desired temperature (yes, its in Celcius, not Fahrenheit). Nespresso machines is great. Small fridge in every room - intended as minibar but you can use it for a few items yourself. Safe is big enough to hold even larger size laptops - that was important. 1st floor (which would be called 2nd floor in the U.S.) has a convenient room with 3 PCs for free internet access (if you want wireless from your room, it's 15 Euros per day). Didn't take their breakfast as 20 Euros per person is overpriced. Couple of bakeries are a good option as they sell good coffee as well and have a few tables where you can sit down. I've read reviews where people complained about the water pressure in the shower: that's not due to the hotel, but it's the European way to conserve water. Showers are more like a 'soft rain' rather than a water massage :-) The hotel staff was extremely friendly - you don't see that much in many hotels.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Across the street is a upscale department store called Bijenkorf - comparable to Harrods in London, or Bloomingdales in the U.S. On 5th floor is also a restaurant that's convenient with high quality food items and all fresh made juices (Jamba-Juice "like").

Midweek couples break

The hotel has a perfect location and the staff were very helpful and polite.the room was good but there is no views other than a brick wall from our room which meant very little natural light .this would not put me off using hotel again as location and staff were excellent.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a lot of restaurants and bakeries very close by so any food options at hotel are not necessary unless you choose too.

Everything but the bed

I'd of given this 5 stars if it weren't for the bed which was way to soft.... The had a cab waiting for my departure which assured me not to miss my flight. Location, and staff was superb!!
