Great location and cool bar / cafe. We did not know the hotel was under construction and where disappointed to see the construction and state of the appearance of the elevators, reception area, and hallways.

great location near the square and on the canal. clean room with daily service and a decent fitness center.

Great location, Shoot the decorator. Service in the restaurant was indifferent. Also, the 45 Euro van to the airport turned out to be 68 Euros

Property is under renovation and to get to my room I literally had to pass through a construction site. Super noisy and dusty.

I was happy to stay again in this superb hotel. The hotel staff was exceptional and always available. My room was always kept in excellent condition. The breakfast buffet was well done with a lot of food choices. The location is next to the Leidseplein and in a fine area of Amsterdam. RAY

I always enjoy staying at the American Hotel. Renovation of the gorgeous cafe has only made me love it more. Great hotel, easy transport for the whole area

Great stay but Air conditioning automatically shut off every night and every day. It was 98 degrees during the day

We were treated with utmost courtesy and professionalism by each and every staffperson from the moment of our arrival when we were offered a complimentary room upgrade after we mentioned that our luggage had not made it to the airport with us all the way to our departure.

Very comfortable except the room was a little tight and bathtub hard to climb in and out of (as an elderly American). Loved the historic architecture, lighting fixtures, stained glass windows and the historic details preserved in the public spaces. Staff was extremely cordial.

The American Hotel is centrally located, walking distance to musuemplein and right next to a canal tour stop. So the options from here are walk, take a canal cruise or tram. I also found it quite spacious for Amsterdam, with beautiful views. I will definitely stay here on my future visits to this beautiful city.

Nice hotel. Great location. Just a few minutes walk to many restaurants, museums, and Vondelpark. The entrance to the Canal cruise is literally just outside the front entrance of the hotel. The staff were all super nice.

Hotel staff very friendly and hotel location is central of city so very convinced.

Excellent hotel. Nice restaurant and bar. Rooms comfortable and staff very helpful. This hotel is close to trolley, theatre, museums,restaurants, etc. Our room overlooked a canal. It was spacious and king size bed also. Many great shops nearby too!

Perfect location to hop on hop off bus and boat. Near museums. The only down side is the pillows were not clean and had a sour odor. Not sure bed Was changed . Second night everything was fresh as I requested.

I love staying at the Hotel American -- the architecture of the Cafe Americain is fabulous. This time though the Cafe is closed for renovations...looking froward to seeing the changes.

Easy access to everything while staying in a Grand old hotel with all the modern amenities. Staff is superb. Helpful, friendly. Salmi and Mustafa greet you and take care of you throughout your visit. They will arrange dining and excursions too.The American Bar in this hotel is staffed by some of the best people we have ever met in all our travels. Rogier, Michel, Sarah and Tony took care of our group with great attention and much fun. I would recommend this hotel to those who appreciate a great deal a great room and great people around them. Close to Vondelpark and the museums and surrounded by the best shopping in the world. I would go back right now if I could. I love the Hampshire American Hotel. I love Amsterdam

The name of this hotel is the American Hotel, not the Hampshire Hotel as Orbitz states. It was very odd to look for the Hampshire Hotel and be told it's the American Hotel. The room was close to shabby, definitely needs renovation. Black-painted woodwork had dents and dings. We paid too much per night for this 3-star-at-most hotel room. The refrigerator had a sign that stated "if you move anything in this refrigerator, it will immediately be charged to your room", which meant we couldn't put milk and wine in it. There was so much hotel stuff (notices, cards, coffee maker, tea pot, etc.) on the counter, that there was little room for our things. Unacceptable!

Great location with ability to check out a little later than normal with a sumptuous breakfast buffet for only 15 euro extra.

Dear guest, Thank you for staying with us and giving us your feedback. It is such a disappointment when the airports fail to get your luggage in the right place and it is a small gesture of the hotel to make your stay a bit more comfortable. We hope to welcome you back in the near future! Kind regards,
