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.

Central location but somewhat disappointing.

We spent 3 nights here, 2 couples in 2 rooms both at the back of the hotel. Rooms looked out over Burger King in a very busy street. There was significant noise from this street at all times, delivery lorries and people shouting in the wee small hours. The glazing did not mask this sufficiently and we all suffered from a lack of sleep. The rooms could do with a makeover, scuffed paintwork, dated marble tiling, poor over bath shower. Could not get Nespresso machine to produce a decent cup of coffee in either room. Staff at front desk were fine although forgot to ask us ( both couples) to sign an area of our registration form so they deactivated our room keys to bring us to the desk. We also felt they could have mentioned the daily room fee at check-in. No doubt it is in the small print somewhere but we were told of the charge on check-out. Not a major problem, but it may have been for some. We are regular travellers and have experienced many hotels. Overall, we were underwhelmed by this one.

When in Amsterdam stay nowhere else but here.

Staff 1st class,couldn't do enough for us. Very clean rooms and every night covers turned and a choclate on the pillow. A bottle of water each side of the bed every night also. Very good location,8 minute walk from Cenrtaal Station. Great value for money. Would recommend this hotel and the next time I go away for a city break would use this chain of hotels as I was very impressed with every aspect of our stay.

This hotel was perfect for our small getaway holiday,the only fault is we were giving a room dat had some sort of fan above our room that was very noisey and went on and off every five mins also the room was very dark as the window looked out onto the side of another building,the food in the restaurant wasnt great at all and very expensive but the staff in the hotel where very friendly and helpful

Lovely hotel in a perfect spot

You can't beat the Swissotel's location, right on Dam Sq. But as soon as you step inside the hustle and bustle dies away and you would never know you were in the middle of the busy city. Our room was very comfortable and we loved the pillow menu! Could have done with free wi-fi but the tv channel choice was great. A stylish and comfortable hotel in an unbeatable spot.

ROMANTIC GETAWAY

The hotel is a 10 minute walk with luggage from the train station . They have at least 2 secure rooms to store your luggage prior to check-in time . The hotel was top notch in every way .The rooms were large,extremely clean and with fabulous bedding . The hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful. The hotel has a great location in which most attractions are walkable .
