“I would like to give this Hotel a beter mark, but I can't”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

It's really quite dificult to say why I've given this hotel an average mark, but I have. It's in a good location, but that's about all that is very good, The rooms are average, bit on the small size, facilities average, noisy at night, breakfast okay, and that's about it. Oh, the staff are very nice, helpful.

Would I stay here again? probably not, but if nothing else was availabale I might.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your stay and your feedback.

Indeed some of our rooms are smaller than others. For single use they are very befiiting. We shall see to it that the selection of the rooms meets with your requirements.

The city noise at night is always there and is the result of being in the most central spot in Amsterdam.

We believe that upon your next visit after the exterior refurbishments, your perception and judgement will be more than average!


Best regards,

The American Hotel is in a great location. The 197 bus from the airport stops in front of the hotel. You are next to the Leidesplein, which is one of the more lively piazzas of Amsterdam. You are minutes away from the 9-streets/Jordain area which is full of interesting boutiques and restaurants, and you are within walking distance of Amsterdam's museums, flower market and even the downtown core (20-minute walk).
The dining room is magnificent and it made you feel like you were in a different era. We only had coffee there so we cannot comment on the food.
We had a deluxe room and it was very large with two double beds, a small living area, and even an electric fireplace (which we really enjoyed with the cold, snowy weather). The room was a bit dated and the bathroom was very small. However, we still found it acceptable. I should also mention that there were significant renovations ongoing in the hotel. I don't know if the rooms will be updated as well.
Overall, we were satisfied with the hotel and would return.

I used to travel a lot into Amsterdam, and I was always back and for between American and Marriott. I prefer Marriott as it is almost the same price, however in this hotel the rooms are old, gym is very small. The best thing in this hotel is the breakfast

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your stay and your feedback.

We would be interested to hear what you recommend to change in our fitness area. With the sauna, Technogym cardio equipment and range of body building equipment we think we have a befitting offering as a free service to our guests.

Besides the current exterior renovations, interior refurbishments will be underway later this year. We hope that you will walk into the building to convince yourself of the upgrades.

Great location close to canal, food, attractions.

Our room was big and bright with queen sized bed and large window.

Helpful staff, when we ask what will be a good way to get to the airport. And she informed there is a direct bus close to the hotel we can take (within 2mins walk).

Will definitely stay again!!

Weekend away with the wife and chose to stay here mainly for the restaurant which is really good.

Rooms are on the small side and front desk staff are not great but that breathtaking dining room really is worth the stay.

My wife and I stayed in this beautiful hotel for two nights, it is located right on the leidisplein in the heart of Amsterdam. The room was superb, very comfortable and the whole hotel has an opulence that really rains through in the beautiful art deco dining room, a joy to have breakfast in each morning. You will not be disappointed if you book here, I look forward to our next visit and will be looking for more hamptons hotels to visit.

I had lunch in Hotel American on in Amsterdam but, was not impressed. It is a very nice and authentic restaurant, the atmosphere is good but, the food is not special. We had club sandwich with smoked, prefabricated chicken which was tastless and a tuna salad which looked beautiful and promising but, the tastes were not good. Too bad as the location is very nice and the service was great. If they do something about the kitchen this can be a great place. I do not recommend this one for the food but, for the atmosphere and location.
