Last Thursday March 20 I have had a great experience at the Amstel Hotel. Both service as location were perfect. I had a business meeting at the Amstel A-bar where we had the opportunity to sit outside in the sunny terrace.
Later we went inside to the Amstel Brasserie for a dinner. Again also there perfect service and good food.
The Amstel hotel is definitely a nice venue to visit for business and private reasons!

Stayed: March 2014, travelled on business

The InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam hotel in Amsterdam is one of the few hotels in the world that look like more like a government secretariat building than a hotel. The location on the banks of the Amstel River gives a feeling of a very large floating cruise boat. The amenities are top of the line befitting a good five star hotel. The defining elements of the hotel are the decorations depicting the styles of the Victorian era and a fabulous restaurant sporting a terrace from where diners can enjoy a grand view of the river. The hotel has a rich legacy having started n the year 1867. Several restaurants and bars are available on-site that provide excellent Mediterranean fare and choice of wines along with great views of the river and the historic city of Amsterdam. The location is just right with the Royal Palace, Dam Square and Leidse Square as well as the museums close by.

This is a place which fullfills perfectly my imagination of truly old world luxury travel. But with all the up to date amenities. Impressive. Small scale, quiet, perfectly located on the Amstel river with gorgeous views from both our rooms over it. Smooth checkin and service good through whole stay, including very helpful concierges with all reservations and arrangements. Rooms spacious and well appointed with dutch patterns. Big bathroom with full amenities. Food good in the hotels restaurants. Perfectly recommendable if luxury experience in Amsterdam is on the schedule. We have fully enjoyed our stay.

Stayed in this hotel in March 2014 for a business trip.

Hotel is beautifully situated on the Amstel river. The building is old with a classic french style. I'm not usually into that style but they pulled it off perfectly in this hotel.

The staff were wonderful, friendly, and very helpful.

Location was not bad. It was walking distance from most of the attractions in the area (Heineken Brewery, Van Gogh Museum, and Red Light District). But make sure to bring your walking shoes because you're going to walk a lot.

Room was lovely and very spacious. So was the bathroom.

Didn't try the restaurants or room service so I can't comment on those. The breakfast was very good.

Would I stay there again? Probably not...But wouldn't complain if I did. Personally, I prefer hotels with more of a modern chic vibe and younger crown.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the river (looking west)

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend in February 2014.

As an Intercontinental card holder, I was lucky to be upgraded to a suite. The room itself was excellent, with a view over the Amstel river and Amsterdam. During the day, there was a little noise from the tram clunking its way across the river bridge, but nothing to disturb my sleep as the room was double glazed.

The room was large, well equipped and spacious. Free wifi was available - an excellent addition. The bathroom was clean, tidy and everything had a touch of luxury that fitted well with the quality of the room. The hotel itself is a decent walk from the centre of town, but frankly, the centre of Amsterdam isn't the nicest anyway, so it's probably a good thing!

The only downside to this stay is simply the price. The hotel isn't cheap by any stretch, but charging €9.50 for a bottle of Heineken is starting to push into the "unreasonable" category. The same with breakfast - very nice and very tasty, but €26 for croissant, bread and jam is a bit steep. I didn't drive (the metro is within 5 minutes walk of the hotel) but €60 per night to park means I'd REALLY have to want my car nearby to stay here!

If you have the money, I highly recommend this hotel - it really is beautiful and the staff are welcoming and friendly. If you're looking for value for money, maybe this isn't the best place for you.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street will have some disturbance from passing trams

Great older building that is beautifully maintained and impeccably staffed. The service here was excellent, and while some spaces can seem a bit tight (as is typical for older hotels), other areas such as the gym far surpass what you would expect to find. We had both of rooms upgraded to suites (a nice touch seeing as they were only obligated to upgrade me as a Royal Ambassador, not my colleague), which were very spacious and well appointed.
Best of all is the location. Just around the corner through the Frederiksplein park is a nice street full of good bars and restaurants. It's an easy walk through the city to the flower market or city center, yet you're just far enough away that you don't have the crowds/drunks that fill up the red light district at night.

We picked this hotel based of the recommendation we read from Tripadvisor. It was a nice stay and we got a great service and experience. The room is extremely spacious , the amenities are excellent and it's very close to centrum where the real Amsterdam located. 150 m from the hotel there is a tram station . i strongly recommend this hotel
