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.

Great location, good staff, average hote

We were unlucky enough to be stuck beyond the original week due to the EU overreaction to a volcano, but the manager was good [...]. This is a big plus for the staff. As for the hotel, don't expect to come any where close to Swissotel standards that are in Singapore. Both the London and Amsterdam location are older hotels with small rooms and few ammenities that don't cost extra. If you are looking for a clean hotel with nice staff and in a great location, this is for you.
