Pulitzer Amsterdam5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
It's pretty much clear that the Pulitzer is one of the best hotels in Amsterdam. The experience of staying in a antique amsterdam house, with its history written in a nice frame inside your room was very interesting. Although the hotel uses a series of old houses, it's refurbished with good quality furniture and a decent sized bedroom and bathroom, but what it lacks in space it more than compensates with the quality of the bed and shower. It's also well located, has good wi-fi and an amazing breakfast. I'd definitely recommend it for anyone visiting Amsterdam.
Overall this is a nice hotel, comprised of 25 traditional, Dutch canal houses that offer scenic views of the canal or the lovely interior courtyard. It is located in a safe neighborhood.. Room Room with a canal view gave an opportunity to observe lots of life and activities – birds singing, bicyclists, canal boats and great for people watching. Room consisted of two very narrow, twin beds (more appropriate for the width of a child but long enough for an adult with wall mounted night shelves on each side with enough room for a book and cup of coffee or the room phone and a glass of water.The head boards were back-lit by rope lighting. Both sides of the bed were a tight fit. Nice bed linens. Room included mauve drapes, mauve wardrobe, yellow chartreuse blanket and matching desk chair, plywood-like bar/tv stand with matching hot pink tassles, and a porthole for communicating between the bathroom and sleeping area. Apparently every room in the hotel complex is different but maintain the same color palette. Bathroom consists of Clean Whitesubway tile, Carerra marble, and Villeroy & Boch pedestal sink and toilet which offset the eclectic bedroom.. Excellent water pressure in shower (no tub). Housekeeping should be commended for immaculate rooms. 3. Lobby can be very hectic during check in, especially with early flight arrivals and 3 pm room availability. Baggage room was overflowing beyond capacity and although our bags got tagged they were left in the lobby. A better system with more staff (there was only one doorman and one baggage porter) to alleviate the overcrowded situation coupled with a secondary baggage area would handle the overflow especially when large tour groups arrive. 4. Hotel Food Options -Breakfast was included with the room and served in Jansz Restaurant. It had a lovely self serve cold buffet and an al a carte menu of warm favourites. Service was a bit slow for hot beverages. - Dinner in Restaurant Jansz on Sunday, April 16th at 7 pm was a horrible experience with the three hostesses who couldn't find the 7 pm reservation that was made by the concierge for guests staying in the hotel for one week. Service continued to be dismal that we were distracted from the food. We did not dine at the restaurant for the reamining of our stay and we do not recommend it to others for dinner. See full Tripadvisor review under 'Jansz Abrupt Service'. - Cafe Pause was disappointing. See full Tripadvisor review under Pause 'Convenient location, mediocre food and mediocre service. 5. .Concierge recommended and booked very interesting private tours and excellent restaurants with great service. The younger concierge went out of his way to find a private, walking tour of Rotterdam that focused on modern architecture. The guide met us at Rotterdam Central Train Station and he was he to to find standing at 2 meters tall. Very pleasant deaingl with the professional and smiling concierges.. Conclusion - If the dinner service in Jansz restaurant improved and if the service and food in Pause greatly improved, then I would give the hotel a higher rating. If Pulitzer wants return guests and good word of mouth, it will consider improving the areas of weakness that are staff related (sadly staff needs proper training and constant monitoring) in Jansz and Pause..
The Pulitzer is perfectly located and has gorgeous rooms, great restaurants and wonderful customer service. The rooms are recently renovated and are first class. If you can, we recommend the breakfast buffet at least once - It is one of the best we have had. We look forward to returning.
25 former houses cleverly assembled into a meandering maze of unique rooms and great common areas. Killer bar; restaurant is great for breakfast or lunch; they even have their own private launch for canal tours (these book quickly so reserve this when you reserve your room --- 1000% better than the tourist boats). Sits in the heart of the 9 Straatjes district filled with shops and restaurants. Deep local feel with global sophistication.
A lovely boutique hotel with a homely and welcoming ambiance. The staff were exceptional and so kind and helpful which as a disabled person I found most reassuring, nothing was too much trouble for these lovely people. The friendliest hotel that we have ever stayed in.
The location is ideal and is accessible to all the tourist spots. The hotel is beautifully renovated and I think it has a great personality which is lacking in the hotel industry right now. The restaurant is good, but I think the bar could have been done better. In general, wonderful stay and service was good.
This is a classy hotel, recent full renovation with excellent fit out. Things did not start so well - no room until 430 pm and then a 2 level room on a higher level - bathroom and sitting area on 1 level and then bed up a steep staircase ( think attic room for your kids). Requested a room change and we were accommodated on level 2. Delightful intern initiative to change our bedding and thus a great recovery. The young intern confirms our faith in next generation! So a lovely hotel, really well located for easy walking around town. My sense is the staff still need some finer points ironed out - breakfast a bit disorganised, queues at front desk and so on - no great issues but a few rough edges. However they will get there!!! I recommend this hotel although not cheap - it is very pleasant.
Spent five nights here while attending an international professional conference at the RAI. This is a wonderful five star hotel along a major canal, consisting of a block of canal homes that have been modernized and converted to spacious, well equipped hotel rooms. Terrific service from the moment we arrived. Location is a short walk from the center of old Amsterdam, just a block from the West Church and the Anne Frank house, with easy access to everywhere via the trams. Concierges helped us with all reservations and travel needs, including a doctor for an urgent medical issue and a canal boat tour. Included breakfast is an elegant feast. Everyone spoke English. Although I was there on business the hotel atmosphere was more one of traveling for pleasure. An elegant experience.
We have been fortunate enough to stay in a variety of hotels in the past but I have to say the the Pulitzer is in a different class. The staff were exceptional; genuinely friendly, extremely knowledgeable and helpful beyond the call of duty. We stayed in a King-size room overlooking the canals which was beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and which I can thoroughly recommend. Tips- The hotel restaurant, the 'Jansz' is excellent, very relaxed with superb food. The trip in the hotels' own boat the 'Tourist' was excellent and well worth booking. I will definitely be back.
Stayed here four nights with friends, hotel made up of several Amsterdam houses put together making a bit of a rabbit warren effect. Up & down stairs, long walks to breakfast. Very small rooms with minimal hanging & storage space. Just a couple of hangers & no place to hang more clothes if you had more. Comfortable bed & small , nice bathroom. Very large breakfast room(s) but COULD NOT BELIEVE, no breakfast tea available. Do they never have British guests? Offered herbal or perfumed teas as English breakfast was "out". Terrible start to a day!
