What a fantastic place, mainly due to the attentiveness of the staff. My wife and I stayed for three nights over a weekend and we were really made to feel at home. We had a river view room on the 1st floor which was comfortable and spacious and this is definitely to be recommended. Breakfast is varied an lavish, though...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 March 2017

We stayed for two nights on March 27th & 28th. The location of the hotel on the Amstel river is great and local shops and restaurants are only 5 minutes’ walk away. You can also go to the Metro Station and only takes just 3 stops into Amsterdam Central Station (approx. 10 minutes). The hotel staff were outstanding and nothing...

This hotel would normally be out of our price range but we were lucky to be given 2 free nights as part of our Tauck River Cruise. When we entered the lobby, I felt like we had stepped on to the Downton Abbey set - so magnificent. Our room was very well-appointed and comfortable. The restaurant had excellent food and...

A performance at Carre' and a visit at the Hermitage Museum made us decide to stay a long weekend at the Amstel Hotel. The drive up appearance was good, excellent service and an eye for detail by all staff members including the concierge who was very helpful in assisting us. The breakfast was nice located at the edge of the...

The rooms were amazing and very spacious! The location could not be more perfect, everything was nearby! The staff treated us very well, one could say we felt like royalty.

We had a room on the 4th floor facing the canal. The room was furnished beautifully and quiet at night as well as spacious.

Very classic hotel with beautiful/ornate finishes. Affords great views being positioned by the canal. The terrace is perfect for sitting out on a summer's day. Service was excellent and we were greeted with a glass of prosecco on arrival and given a very comprehensive tour of our room and hotel facilities. The hotel is currently undergoing renovation of the bedrooms,...

The staff made us feel like we were the only guests during our two-night stay at this classic, beautiful hotel. The lobby, exterior and rooms are all super nice, especially the bathroom! We also enjoyed the hot tub, which neighbors the pool and overlooks the river. Our room had a wonderful riverfront view, which I definitely recommend. Great stay!

When traveling you tend to think that the more luxurious the hotel the less friendly the staff will be. There is always this image of staff being courteous rather than friendly. The truth is that at the Amstel we felt exactly the opposite. On the one hand we found a beautiful hotel just beside the canal and on the other...

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
