Could have been better

The hotel staff is fantastic and the check-in process was painless. I have had 2 stays at Amsterdam Court and highly recommend it. The only negative I can report was that our hotel room was way too hot. The room had a window unit but that didn't work. I demanded to be moved on the last day of my 4 day stay which I regret not having done sooner. This trip was a Christmas gift to my daughters and having them wake up all sticky and sweaty could have been avoided. It was my fault for not speaking up sooner. The staff is very accommodating and goes above and beyond to keep guest satisfied. Keep in mind the hotel was built in the 1920's therefore it is not perfect so if something's not up to par let them know. They will fix the problem ASAP!

Convenient Value

Busy time in city but this more reasonable than others in area. Asked for quietest possible room and appreciated spot at back away from street noise. Would be too dark for some. Though very small room had desk so a work surface. Better armoire size than in many properties that have gone this rouute vs closets. Actually tall enough to hang long coats and with drawer space. Decent lights for reading . Small bUt updated bath

Ordinary

It's a ordinary and small. But may be worth the price in such area. But mattress is not good. Many springs seem broken.

Great Location and Great Staff

Good stay overall. Staff was very helpful, especially Bobby. He was incredibly busy but was able to assist me with issues with my cancelled duplicate reservation. Only challenge was the bed being very uncomfortable.

Great location, quite clean

7 minutes to Times square, 5 minutes to Rockefeller center, 15 minutes to Central Park. It is a good choice for those who plan to see Broadway shows because the hotel is located in theater district and so close to many famous theaters. The room is small but tidy, it suits one single person living there very well. But!!!! The business center in this hotel charged me $15.00 for printing one slide of paper!!! So unreasonable!!!!

Please don't buy any metro pass, you will find you walk all the time and the bus and metro are not so convenient.

Good Location

The location of the hotel was perfect. The room was small and a little loud, but overall it was good. Good place to stay if you just want a place to sleep at night.

Last minute getaway

I was looking for hotels last minute and was happy to find this place. It's affordable and in a great location. The staff was friendly and although the room is rather small (this is New York after all), I was comfortable and happy with my stay.

Great value and perfect location!

I was very pleased with our stay. I visit NYC a couple of times a year and this was the first time I stayed at the Amsterdam. I would highly recommend it and I would stay there again. The rooms are small - but all NYC rooms are small. They were very clean and they had a very efficient use of the space. The location is great if you want to see shows and be close to Times Square without being in the middle of the chaos of Times Square. Close to the subway as well. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Loved it!

Don't be afraid to use the subway system. It's very easy to use and people are helpful in directing you if you have questions.

Amsterdam Court in NYC

Booked this hotel needing a room in the heart of the sights and action, could not have booked a better placed hotel. Right next to Broadway for the shows. Compared to other hotels in tne same area price was a killer deal. Let's face it you don't go to NYC to stay in your room so the fact that it's a small room didn't bother me at all. It was clean and comfortable, room service everyday I was there. I had read about hot water issues, it was slow on coming but piping hot once there...great pressure made for long showers after walking the city all day. I stayed on tne 7th floor so street noise was not that bad but again it's NYC...the street buzz is part of the deal. I would get up and open the window..take in the sounds and smells...great! Free coffee in the lobby all day worked well for me but there's a dunkins two doors down as well. Reception staff were pleasant and helpful , always happy to give advice. There is also 24hr parking next door so to be sure and ask reception for a hotel discount. I feel that I got a bargin with this hotel and I,ll be back.

If you go to a live comedy show DO NOT buy tickets from vendors on the street....go direct to the venue and buy with confidence.
