No drama

The staff was very courteous and worked hard at delivering a sense of intimacy. The room was simple and classic. The hotel felt small without the multiple restaurant selections and meeting spaces of a typical American downtown hotel. The neighborhood offers a variety of restaurants and shopping experiences. The hotel's Damrack street location is active and "touristy".

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Unless you're in the market for diamond jewelery, avoid the red school bus city tour offered up the street near the train station. It's billed as 1 hr/45 minute adventure of which 1 hr. is consumed by a mandatory tour of a diamond factory.

Swissotel Amsterdam

All around terrific experience at the Swissotel Amsterdam. It is in the center of everything and a convenient 10-15 minute walk from the main Central Train Station. Service was efficient from start to finish and upon checking in we were upgraded to a nicer room (Ask for #435) when we mentioned to the manager ([...]great man BTW) that we were on our honeymoon. We didn't eat at the restaurant so you are on your own there. You can't go wrong staying here!

Loved this Hotel

Location was fantastic. Hotel staff were simply the best. Had a quiet room on the 6th floor which was to be a 'business class' room. It had everything I needed but only wish the Television had been a little bigger. But so many good things about this hotel. Free internet, fast, VERY fast elevators. Clean and comfortable rooms with comfy beds. I will not hesitate to book again and think it was wonderful hotel for the price. We shopped locally, a blue and white store with good salads and sandwiches, drinks, etc just a few doors from the McDonalds just next door to hotel. We had a fridge so we put store bought goods for breakfast and snacks. Probably more good about this hotel but can't think at the moment. just really really nice time. Loved Anne Frank house and Van Gogh museum. Book online in advance so no wait in the long lines. Oh, Aircon was perfect, worked really well and I had no trouble staying very cool during a hot spell in A/dam.

Ok Place

Hotel location is awesome -- A couple blocks from the Train Station and close to the "Red Light" district and many other places. The staff was helpful if you have any questions --Hotel resturant was ok, nothing to jump up and down for.

About 3 blocks North of the Hotel, across from the water in front of the Goverment Bldgs is a resturant called "Wok", this is a great place to have Dinner (It's a little expensive) but the great atmosphere makes up for the expense.

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.

Great Location

We visited Amsterdam for 2 days. the location of the Hotel is ideal for a short visit. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and modern. Our room overlooked Dam square but was not too noisy. Free internet access in business center. Fitness room is nice but we did not have time to use it.

When in amsterdam, rent a bike. The city is very bike friendly, and you will see so much more, especially when visiting for a short time. Also, do go on one of the boat tours, which start just down Damrack street, a few minutes from the hotel.
