Just spent 3 nights in Amsterdam at the American Hotel. My husband and I had one room- our two children 20 and 22 had another. Can't say enough nice things about the hotel. Lots of character, the dining room is beautiful. Rooms are large for a European hotel - ours had beautiful stained glass windows.The location is great - we were able to walk everywhere and lots to do for the kids at night after us old folks turned in. Yes, you may hear the tram at night or some of the lively activity outside, but it was worth it to be in one of the best parts of the city right on a canal and in a busy square. Breakfast came with our room fee - a wonderful buffet each morning with a chef ready to fry eggs or make us an omelet or waffle. The hotel is has all modern amenities, but retains the charm and elegance of a 100+ year old facility. I would definitely stay here again. Not cheap, but what hotel in a city is these days? Breakfast included helped - otherwise would have been 19.50 euros each, so it made a difference. We just stayed in three nice hotels in Europe and this one was the best.
