To be fair, the Amstel was not our first choice of hotel in Amsterdam as we prefer boutique style hotels. However, due to fire damage in our original choice of hotel we were moved to the Amstel at the last minute. I'm so pleased that we were !!
The Amstel is a fantastic hotel and the staff are just delightful - they couldn't do enough for us. The concierge was particularly helpful and recommended a gorgeous restaurant that was not a 'tourist trap'. The girls on reception welcomed us with a smile and every morning when we came down they always said good morning.
We were upgraded from an Executive City View room to an Executive River view room and it was great. As it so happens, the fireworks display the Amstel held on New Years Eve took place right outside our bedroom window so we had the most spectacular view ! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable.
It is a shame that some of the reviews on here were so negative as they made me feel a bit worried about staying at the Amstel. However, having visited there myself now I feel that a lot of the reviews are a bit harsh and I would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone and if we ever visit Amsterdam again the Amstel would be our first choice.More
