Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South

Recent guest reviews

This is one of those hotels without much of character, where you wake up and you are not so sure where you are if you travel a lot. Of course the hotel is comfortable, but very simple. It is business hotel, to get efficient night sleep. After the night you will not remember it for sure. Hotel is clean and quiet, staff is polite and friendly. Food at the breakfast and lunch is simple and boring. I do recommend this hotel if you travel on business - it is conveniently located outside of the historical center, in the business district surrounded with office buildings. For those who travel for pleasure - there are surely more attractive places downtown Amsterdam.

The Crowne Plaza is a very comfortable hotel with great staff in the Amsterdam South business district. The rooms and bathrooms are very nicely appointed with comfortable furniture and all the amenities one would expect. Although I was not terribly impressed with the breakfast buffet, all the food we ordered from room service was excellent. The hotel is within short walk of the Amsterdam South train and transportation center (one stop from Schiphol Airport), as well as tram and bus lines that head into the center of time.

Nicely appointed rooms, clean and fresh. Great Tea Coffee making facilities in the room. Breakfast very good, and nice bar area. Best of all the staff were ALL to a fault gave the most consistently high quality of service. Polite, helpful, friendly and professional. Excellent team, any Hotel would be proud of.

We enjoyed our stay at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South. It is located near a couple of options for public transportation and although it isn't right in city center, it is typically a 15 minute ride on the tram to get to where the action is. Our room was large and very clean. The hotel bar had a good selection of wine and very friendly bartenders. We had access to the Executive Lounge. It was nice because you can have wine or beer the entire time the lounge is open. The breakfast options were pretty good, but I was disappointed that there weren't any warm options (e.g. scrambled eggs), but the croissants were excellent! During happy hour, you can get a complementary cheese plate, which was pretty incredible! It was a great selection of a variety of cheeses and breads. The only downside was this was the snack every night, after two of them, we did feel like we were living on cheese and would have enjoyed an alternative. Overall, the property is very nice, and the area surrounding the hotel is nice and quiet, which was a good break after a long day in the hustle and bustle of city center.

I am used to notice the little details that make an hotel stand out amongst its peers. Only as example, and regarding Crown Plaza Amsterdam South, I may remark: • The flawless state of order and hygiene we may find in every section of this hotel; • All the personnel talks to you on a kind tone and a smile on their face, never challenging requests, and always showing willingness to help; • The detail (it is not a detail at all!) of mentioning that cleaning of rooms starts later during weekends and keeping that promisse; also, and I noted it, the doors connecting elevators to guest rooms area were closed on Saturday morning, to keep the quiet and pleasant ambiance of the hotel; • The detail (again not a detail) of the general manager coming to talk with a a guest (me) that had had a minor problem on his room, that had already been solved by the staff. So, all in all, if you plan to travel, in business or leisure to Amsterdam, and want to stay on a calm and high quality Hotel, at a excellent quality vs price relation, this is your place to stay

I was there for a business and did not have high expectation. The rooms and bathrooms are good but the staff is phenomenal. 1. I tried checking in early at 10 am after long transatlantic flight and the staff was extremely nice to allow me to check in early as I had a boot on my right foot. The receptionist went out of the way to help me check in early. 2. Room service was great 3. I needed a European power adapter and the staff brought one to my room 4. The receptionist called me to check whether everything is ok and I also received a welcome letter 5. Check out was very smooth Overall very friendly staff and better customer service than Four Seasons without Four Season prices

A warm welcome after a 30 hour plane trip, requesting our room early was no problem. This was the beginning of a wonderful stay at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South. Each & every staff member were more than helpful with any request. The room had a comfortable bed & modern bathroom. All was clean & tidy. After settling in, we asked for directions to the city & what was the best attractions to see during our short stay. Tram tickets were available at the front desk making our trip into town easy. The front desk staff were engaging each time we had a question. Equally the bar/dining room staff were helpful & the meals were delicious. Although this hotel is out of the main city area, it was easy to catch a tram into town. The staff at the hotel were more than helpful when arranging any travel plans. Even when we were leaving, the staff continued to ensure our travel plans were ok. We have stayed in many hotels around the world and I would give this team full 10/10 for customer service and support.

We stayed in this hotel for one night mid-January 2018. The hotel was easy to find, just a stone throw away from the Amsterdam Zuid railway station (take exit direction Gustav Mahlerplein). Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly team of front desk employees and assigned a high room with a nice view. The room was comfortable and well equipped with a comfy bed, large bathroom (with bathtub). We had a fantastic night sleep. We did not use breakfast, but we enjoyed a few drinks in the hotel bar in the evening, which was quite a pleasant experience. I can recommend this hotel to anyone who does not want to pay the horrendous prices for hotels in the city center of Amsterdam, but are looking for good value for money and wish to stay in a modern, contemporary hotel. The hotel close to the city center (roughly 20 minute tram ride with line 5) and close to the airport (10 minutes by train from Amsterdam Zuid Station).

Was really impressed with this hotel with 5 Min walk to Zuid Metro with great connections. There is s nice selection for breakfast and even though I personally didn’t get the opportunity to eat dinner at the hotel, it sure looked nice.

Stayed here with family, and as a first time in the city, I absolutely loved the location of the hotel. We didn't know what was around us and it took us a few minutes walking to get to our Big bus tour. Friendly staff and clean rooms.
