Arriving at the American we were impressed with the facade. Prompt checking in a boring lobby for such a great building was a bit of a let-down. Arrived at room 134 and were disappointed by the small size of the room. The stained glass window was very impressive though. Bathroom was small but fine. The 'customer comment' card was filled in and left there from the 15th of April, this was now the 18th. We were there until the 21st and the card was never removed/replaced.
The bar staff weren't particularly friendly and our kir royales were not cold at all, our wine later wasn't particularly cold either. The location is good for the Leidseplein and all its 'attractions', and the outside terrace and it's staff were very good. Overall it wasn't a bad experience but next time we will rather stay at the more impressive and professional Krasnapolsky or the Doelen which were both unfortunately fully booked on this occassion.
