“Stylish hotel in the perfect location”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We have just returned from a long weekend at this hotel celebrating our marriage. This is our fourth stay at this delightful hotel and it never fails to impress. The location is perfect for sightseeing and nightlife. We stayed in a lovely spacious room with balcony overlooking the canal. The buffet breakfast is served in the beautiful art deco restaurant. The choice of breakfast is amazing and well worth the money. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. We will definitely be visiting Amsterdam again in the future and this hotel will always be our first choice. We cannot fault it.

We enjoyed our stay here very much; the location is only a short stroll from the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, and the outdoor bar and restaurant, while a bit pricey, are great places to sit and watch the amazing street scene - trams, buses, cars, and bicyclists and pedestrians dressed in every kind of clothes, all bustling around and somehow not colliding with each other. We suggest getting a room rate that includes breakfast, as the breakfast buffet was one of the largest and most varied we've seen. We will definitely stay here the next time we're in Amsterdam.

very nice location; walking distance from any attraction, and next door to the bus to Schipol airport.
you have to book a room on the canal, so you can see the traffic of the boats, and it is situated at one of the boat stops.
staff is very nice, the room are old fashioned but clean, and the wifi works.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the canal

I've just come back from a week long conference in Amsterdam. There is another Hampshire Eden Hotel in town, which was on the conference list, but we didn't realize that and we booked this one, the American Hotel, by mistake. A very happy mistake. This is a beautiful, centrally located, air conditioned hotel, with a very nice restaurant right on Leidseplein (the Cafe Americain) where we had a good meal while watching life on the square. The Other Hampshire Eden was not nearly so nice. My single room was clean and lovely, with a balcony overlooking the fountain in front. Our friends were jealous.

The staff here were extremely kind and helpful--one of my colleagues had her handbag snatched in a restaurant near the University and needed lots of help replacing her passport, credit cards, everything.

The free wifi has to be renewed on a daily basis, a minor hassle compared to the many conveniences, one of which is a business center equipped with working computers and printers at no charge. (Note to hotel: not all the folks in the business center are actually staying at the hotel.)

I took a van from the airport for 17 euros, but on the way home I took the #197 bus in front of the hotel, which takes you directly to the airport for only 5 euros. You definitely do not need a taxi--I had no trouble getting my admittedly small carry on into the bus, and there were plenty of seats for the ride of less than half an hour. Of course I would have taken it from the airport as well if I realized it stops directly in front of the hotel. If you have lots of luggage, the shuttle van (it's blue) can be booked and it comes right to the door of the hotel where people will help you.

Bravo, American Hotel! You made my trip a pleasure, and you helped my stressed friend take care of the aftermath of a very disruptive loss.

Room Tip: I asked for a room with a view and I got it, overlooking the fountain, a single with a queen sized b...

We stayed 3 nights here and loved it. The business center has every charger imaginable so that was nice and breakfast was also very nice. Besides the great rooms and service you CAN NOT BEAT THE LOCATION. It is super close and centrally located. We were able to go to the Anne Frank house easily as well as all the museums and shopping areas and the brewery. I also enjoyed the nearby park that was sponsored by New Balance which includes a run club and map of the park.

My husband and I did a quick Amsterdam city trip and spent one night. Our stay at the American was very nice. It was a rare, very hot weekend and so glad the room had airco that worked well. The Hotel location can't be beat and the room had plenty of space, good value for the money.

We had a great trip to Amsterdam made perfect by our stay at the Amsterdam American Hotel. The property is located in the old part of the city near museums and good restaurants. There is a street car stop in front of the hotel and other public transit is a short walk from the hotel. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms are small and the bath tiny but functional. The hotel was clean and the property is well maintained. The breakfast buffet in the dining room is the perfect way to start your day. The outside bar and café is a perfect place to enjoy the evening sunset with a glass of wine or beer. This is a historic property constructed in the early years of the 20th century. The architectural details are worth noting, particularly the impressive four story stained glass window in the stairway. I would stay at this property again.

Room Tip: The rooms easily accommodate two people. The bath will only accommodate one person at a time.
