InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Love Intercontinental hotels, but this may be one of the best. Very attentive personnel, a lot of details in the room, great servibar, great decor. Location is not the best but not bad. Good view from my room.

Likely the very best luxury hotel in Amsterdam. Located on the beautiful Amstel River in a nice and quiet part of the city with easy access to the museums, and other hot spots with just a quick cab or uber ride. The hotel was very accommodating to our needs. We arrived early in the morning and our room was not ready (which we would not expect). They held our luggage for us and gave us some tips as to where we could go while we waited for our room. They put us in a room as soon one of our rooms was ready. While we waited, we ate in one of the restaurants for lunch, and it was one of the best meals. The Caesar Salad was one of the best I have ever had. What a great place to eat. The rooms were beautiful and large and so nicely appointed. It was a so very nice, and the service was so wonderful. I just cannot say enough about the hotel. We had breakfast with our room and it was well worth it to have the breakfast. First of all the breakfast room is beautiful. The food it fantastic, and the service is the best. Once again, if you want to splurge a little. This is the place for you.

A great place to stay if you have a room on the river. The historic vibe is nice if you are not looking for something modern, the service attentive and the spa good. All in all just about worth the price.

My friend booked Intercontinental Amstel Amsterdam for her wedding. What a great experience! Beautiful interior, excellent service and great experience. This hotel is a great venue for hosting events with around 100 - 150 persons. There are many beautiful rooms, bars, ballroom. Did not book a room to stay overnight but will look forward to any opportunity to do that in the future.

We stayed in a connecting junior suite and executive twin room which were spacious. All of the staff (front desk, concierge, housekeeping, breakfast room etc) are absolutely "six star" and I cannot speak highly enough of them. The breakfast room is beautiful and next to the river. The only other thing worth mentioning is that the hotel - whilst well located and in a good area - is still 10 minutes or so walk from many of Amsterdam's main attractions. Thank you to all at the hotel for making our stay in Amsterdam so enjoyable.

This hotel is absolutely beautiful, displaying so much history. Our room was comfortable and we had a fabulous view of the canal. Although the view was awesome, there was some noise generated by boat passengers and party goers, so beware if you like to sleep with your windows open. The coffee shop, bar, and restaurants all had great menus and excellent food. Service was impeccable. We were made to feel valued as customers and treated with courtesy. Every need and/or request was addressed immediately. Concerige services were perfect. Every request for information, reservations, or booking tickets was done immediately. Staff was very knowledgeable about the city, attractions, and transportation. Five star service!

Client care is paramount...I was able to send a package to Australia without fuss .. Beautiful accommodation.central to all Amsterdam has to offer. Truly wonderful experience. Warning: Do be very aware of the number of bikes in Amsterdam ..the staff warned me ..but I really was not prepared for the volume,speed and that they have right of way always.

From the early Check-in to saying farewell, one is truly impressed by the staff's sincere appreciation that you are staying at the Amstel. The facility is magnificent, the dining (both breakfast and dinner) is memorable and the service is perfect. Reward yourself; stay there.

Stayed on business (booked by the client we were working for). Met by super pleasant staff that couldn't do enough for us all, we were slightly early so none of our rooms were ready for us but we were offered a complimentary drink while we waited. Rooms are very clean and while the antique theme is not necessarily to my taste it was none the less creating a nice atmosphere of comfort and luxury. My only real issue with my room was that it was starting to show wear in some places such as the taps in the shower and the sink and the control box for the lighting by the bed was loose and well worn. Breakfast was a nice experience with a nice selection on offer (no sign of greasy fried rubbish). Spa was also really nice and much needed after the previous day, though the so called "Jacuzzi" may require a little imagination, with only 2 vents creating some sporadic bubbles! Overall a great hotel that I wouldn't hesitate to visit on a personal/leisure trip.

Amazing and classy hotel that oozes class and sophistication. Room was clean with canal view. Well appointed room, with everything we needed. Great friendly staff. Great breakfast choice. Canal bar was a nice way to spend an hour having a cocktail and champagne. Very well located in the city. Loved it! Excellent wifi.
