“Nice hotel, good business location”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

The location is exceptionally good for the Amsterdam South business area - it is right in it. I think the train from the airport took just nine minutes and this is not an "under the flightpath" hotel at all. Public transport (if you need it) into the centre is not bad at all.

Nice rooms (you pay for it). Breakfast on my rate was not included and looked overpriced, so I skipped it - not that my employer would not have paid for it, but I could not quite bring myself to eat at that rate. And the conference I was attending nearby started with a light breakfast, so I got the best of both worlds.

Slightly strange WiFi set up - free if you register for the hotel loyalty scheme, otherwise you pay. At this rate, free "reasonable use" WiFi surely?

I'd stay here again, on business. Were it pleasure, I'd probably pick a hotel in the middle canal rings, closer in, but not right in town.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked pretty well located - nothing to watch out for that caught my eye.

Hard to fault this hotel, lovely big room, great nights sleep even with the work going on outside the building. Cost an Arm and a leg to eat and drink here but the food is good, you will need to get a cab from here should you feel the need to go into the city and cabs are not cheap 45€from airport to hotel one way and 37€ back to airport. all in all very nice hotel.

We visited Amsterdam for a last minute weekend away using a flight + hotel package booked through Expedia. The hotel is located half way between the airport and the city center, about an 8 minute walk from Amsterdam Zuid station. There are trains passing through this station on route to and from the airport every 10 minutes making this a very convenient location when arriving late. The tram and metro connections to the historic center and museum district are very convenient, also within a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Once you are on the tram it takes about 15 minutes to get to the museum district and about 30 minutes to get to Dam Square. The hotel seemed new and the rooms were quiet, modern, clean, and nicely decorated. Beds are very comfortable! Service was friendly and efficient. Since we were celebrating our anniversary the hotel brought up a complementary bottle of sparkling wine. This was a nice surprise!
This hotel is a great choice if you want great value without sacrificing comfort. We didn't mind taking the tram back and forth. In face, we enjoyed the views from the tram (and the chance to rest our feet while getting to and fro) so the location was not a problem for us. Tip- take the room with breakfast option, particularly if staying over the weekend. There are no local eateries open on the weekend within walking distance.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay and posting your feedback on Tripadvisor.

It is great that you discovered the benefits of our location outside the city center of Amsterdam. The proximity of Schiphol Amsterdam Airport and available tram and metro connections between Station Amsterdam Zuid and the city center make the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South an ideal choice for a business or leisure stay. Tram 5, running from Station Amsterdam Zuid to the Central Station, passes by many tourist attractions and is a great way to discover the historic center.

It has been a pleasure to learn that you enjoyed the design of the hotel and that you were able to enjoy a good night’s sleep.

Thank you as well for your friendly remark about the surprise that was arranged for your anniversary. As it is our passion to assist our guests in making their journey a memorable experience, we were happy to contribute in this way to your special occasion.

We are grateful that you took the time to inform us about your stay and look forward to welcome you back in the near future.

With kind regards,

Very nice hotel in the southern area of Amsterdam. Close to the airport and the RAI convention center.

The hotel is very clean and has a very friendly staff. The king size bed I had gave my wife and I one of the best sleeps either of us have in a long time. The bathroom has a huge bathtub but the way the shower door is setup on the tub makes it feel weird when taking a shower.

Had the breakfast buffet for 23 euros per person. All the food was good except the scrambled eggs. They tasted a little bit like flavorless foam.

They also have a nice bar to unwind in at the end of the day. Good selection of mixed drinks to choose from. Food is also available.

It's a short walk to a main tram station and a stop. Very easy to go down town and then hop on tram 5 all the way back.

Dear valued guest,

It was a pleasure to receive your review through Tripadvisor and to read that you enjoyed a good stay at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South.

While staying away from home it can be challenging to enjoy a good night’s sleep. It was great to learn that this was not the case for you. We know how important sleep is. Sleep is the fuel that powers your day. At Crowne Plaza, we've thought of elements to help you relax and ensure you enjoy a great night’s sleep such as luxurious bedding, aromatherapy, Quiet Zones and guaranteed wake-up calls.

Thank you as well for your feedback about the scrambled eggs. It is very valuable for us to know what exactly can be improved on our product and service. With regards to your remark about the shower I would like to inform you that we have both rooms with walk-in shower as bathtubs so upon your next stay with us please indicate at check-in which option you prefer. We are always happy to consider and grant any guest requests upon availability.

We hope to welcome you back as our guest again in the future and thank you once again for taking the time to write a review.

With kind regards,

I've been to Amsterdam many times in the past and I hadn't really found a good business hotel yet. Too bad I had't found this sooner! Only negative is that it is far from the city center, but I would definitley return!

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor.

It is great that our facilities and service are connecting to what is important for you in a business hotel.

Our location, despite slightly remote from downtown Amsterdam, is unique as Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport and the RAI Convention Center are only a few minutes away by public transport. On walking distance of the hotel you will find station Amsterdam- Zuid with fast metro and tram connections into town.

We definitely hope to welcome you back soon and assist you again in making your journey a success.

This Hotel was by far the best for customer service in any of the hotels we stayed in across Europe.Big thanks goes to Karen from the front, who made our stay the best ever.Our room which we booked as a club room was on the 7th floor and had some nice views of the city around us.We chose to stay here based on the great reviews on trip advisor and the people arnt wrong here.Although a bit far from the centre of town, its still very easy by public transport or the staff are more than willing to call a taxi which takes around less than 5 mins to arrive and about 10 euro into town.The whole front desk, breakfast staff and Manhattan bar staff were amazing.Thanks for a Wonderfull Time during our very short stay.

Room Tip: book the club rooms.

I recently traveled for business and stayed at this hotel (staying a grand total of 13 nights). My experience with Amsterdam hotels in the past had been very hit and miss. Some are great for location but you have to put up with noise (particularly the city center hotels) Others are good hotels but the internet sucks (and is expensive to boot). The picky traveler usually has something to say about the hotel experience in Amsterdam and as much negative as positive feedback is in my experience the norm.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The management run a tight ship - the hotel was spotless, the staff courteous and the meal options surprisingly varied and high quality. The rooms (at least my room) was smallish, but well appointed (iron and ironing board and all the other expectations of a US customer were addressed). Room was quiet - internet was good.

The great aspect of the hotel was that it is a couple of minutes brisk walk away from the second biggest rail terminal in Amsterdam, Amsterdam Zuid, which is a great way to visit the central city (a few minutes away on Metro 51) as well as train options to the airport (10 mins away) and to destinations near and far.

Given the concentration of offices nearby, it is clearly setup for the business traveler but would make a great destination for people on vacation, with all of the comfort and privacy of a hotel outside of the city center, but with great connections to explore Amsterdam at your leisure.

Highly recommended. I'll be using it exclusively for future business trips to Amsterdam.

Dear valued guest,

It gives me great pleasure that you have found in us your hotel of preference in Amsterdam. To earn your loyalty by consistently meeting your expectations is the greatest compliment a hotel may receive.

I agree that a lot of credit goes to our convenient location, in the heart of the business district. However, to receive your praise on cleanliness, service of staff and quality of meals over a thirteen stay experience is the icing on the cake!

Upon your next stay I look very much forward to welcome you back in person and I would like to thank you very much for this review.
