For my second trip to Amsterdam, I decided to stay in the famous InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam. I am thrilled I made this decision, as it was an excellent experience from beginning to end. I booked a standard city-view room and, as an InterContinental Ambassador, was upgraded to an executive river-view room. The room was beautifully laid-out in a classical style and was well-serviced. The carpet was a bit worn in some areas, but this was not to the overall detriment of the room. The hotel's fitness centre was well-stocked, including a beautiful 15m swimming pool at river level. Complimentary coffee, juice and snacks were available in the pool bar.
The hotel itself is located in a quiet area approximately 15-minutes stroll along the river to the city centre. For those not willing to make the walk, there is a stylish cafe/bar just opposite the hotel.
Staff were extremely helpful throughout the stay. The only minor problem was that there was no one to greet us and take our bags at check-in. The receptionist had to take our bags to our room for us.
I will certainly be staying at the Amstel Amsterdam again.More
