I was in AMS for business reasons, and I knew that it’s gonna be cold and windy, and it was, despite of the good weather. The location of the house is really great – it’s really in middle of the town. Service was really helpful (they even found my colleagues ring left at the toilette-sink). The room was a bit used and dark (1st floor). I couldn’t set the heating to an optimum (there was the air conditioning and a heater) and it was terrible cold in the bath, so I took hot shower more times during the 2 days (tap wasn’t mounted properly). Breakfast is very nice and loyal to the hotel’s name (I easily found American pancake and maple syrup), but small business catering (like sandwiches and 2 kinds of salads) was tasty but not outstanding. Overall it’s not a bad place, but I would go for a homier house, or a swimming apartment on a channel :)

Why i choose this hotel because the location !
From Schipol Airport to hotel you can use bus number 197 (5 euro) and stop in leidseplein which in front of the hotel.
If you use train from Shcipol, you must arrive in Amsterdam central station, then you can use Tram number 1; 2; or 5 to get the hotel! Only walk 3 minutes from Tram stop (leidseplein) to hotel .

You can go from hotel to the other atraction Place such Dam, Rijkmuseum, van goh museum use Tram number 1; 2; or 5.

The hotel is in leidseplein area, so easy to found shop, Cafe and Restaurant.

The Amsterdam American Hotel is a brilliant place to stay in Amsterdam. A hotel with history, style, service and location. It has it all. The rooms are large and light and have the best balconies in Amsterdam, not to mention the huge and extremely comfortable beds. Brilliant breakfast in the wonderful art deco Cafe Americain. The service is excellent and a special mention to Mathilda who always makes us feel special.

Room Tip: The Amsterdam American Hotel has both balconies and canal views. Book through the hotel's websit...

This great little hotel is situated on the edge of the centre of the old town and is very convenient for exploring Amsterdam by foot, bicycle or tram. You also have a river tour stop right outside the hotel entrance and I would recommend it as a great relaxing way to see the city.

Rooms are a little on the small side but very comfortable nonetheless and, despite being right at the bustling centre, there was very little noise.

Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable - if not a little distracted at times - and my whole stay was a pleasure.

I will definitely be staying there on my next visit to Amsterdam.

We stay here whenever we are in Amsterdam. Easy walk to all attractions and many fantastic restaurants. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are good with a variety of options. I recommend this hotel to friends and family who are in Amsterdam....many are returning guests also.
