Reviewed 7 August 2014

This was a very beautiful hotel in a great location. Our room was beautifully decorated with a balcony and view of the canal. We walked everywhere from this location. Anne Frank house, museums etc. No buses needed other than to and from airport which stops right in front of hotel.
The staff were very friendly with excellent service. This was our last 4 days before flying home and we were really thankful we had booked this hotel. We were able to wind down before flying home. It was a little high in price (due to exchange in currency) however it was worth every penny. Our anniversary ended on a high note.

Room Tip: Our room facing the canal was pretty quiet.

While this hotel has a perfect location and a high quality restaurant, the rooms are tiny, 2 people would clash if they happen to stay several hours in the same room.

Service is ok, as is cleanliness, the rates are very expensive for what they produce.

Room Tip: stay away from it

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your visit and your review posting. LIke almost every character hotel in the world, our rooms differ in size. Almost no two rooms are the same in the 175-room hotel that was built in 1900. If room size is a crucial element during your stay, we kindly request to state so upon your reservation, in order for us to try and facilitate your expectations. With best regards,

Standard room was clean, modern, not exactly big, but quiet. Hotel bar/lounge is a great spot for drinks with its red modernist furnishings; had a very good martini, which is hard to come by in NL. Fantastic location near square, museums, shops, galleries & main transit.

Beds were very comfortable & the room amenities modern, including the bath. Staff friendly.

We stayed at the Amsterdam American Hotel on the 24th July, it was wonderful. The location is brilliant and the bus from the airport stops right outside and takes 30 mins, we had a lovely room with balcony over looking the front of Hotel, it was very clean and the service was excellent, we could not fault this Hotel and recommend to everyone to pay it a visit .

We only stayed one night in this hotel as we were in transit, but the room was very clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful. Great art exhibition around the hotel walls.
We loved the decor and found the restaurant excellent. The situation was very central and one could go almost anywhere from there using either the canals, trams or ones feet.
Lovely city. Definitely worth a second trip and we would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: State your requirements, especially for a good view and sunny room.

We decided to stay here at the end of July 2014 in a deluxe room with balcony and canal view and Im so glad we did! It is a beautiful hotel in a great location. Staff are friendly and helpful and our room was big. Never had breakfast or dinner here we went elsewhere so can't comment on food. You get a voucher for 2 free welcome drinks to use during your stay which was handy on our last day :) Amsterdam itself is a beautiful city with lots to do. We will be back and will stay at this hotel again!
