“Best Location, Value & Service in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2011

Reception staff & Management at this Hotel go the extra mile to ensure you feel welcome, the Club rooms benefit from a private elevator by the lounge area. If you are visiting Amsterdam and cannot decide I would recomend this Hotel. The location is perfect and the worlds best burger bar is a 8 minute walk away. (see my other review)

Room Tip: Get a Club room.

Have to agree with everything said recently – an excellent hotel well sited for both the central railway station and city attractions. Friendly staff and good breakfast room (did not sample evening meal as there are too many restaurants in the area). Large and quiet bedroom with all necessary amenities and all the bits and pieces you could want (we were at the back – front bedrooms could have been disturbed by Queen’s Birthday celebrations). Also, free broadband internet in the basement. Liked the lounge area beside the restaurant, where the “better half” was much take with the gas fire (expect she now wants to buy one). Enjoyed stay and will definitely be back.

Very minor comment – not sure what I got for Platinum status. Free breakfast voucher (useless, had booked B&B rate), free 1 drink voucher (what was wife to do – sit and watch me?) and a key ring (actually useful). Now, I’m only interested in the points, not status, but the “freebies” should be something worthwhile – 2 free drinks vouchers at the least. Also, hotel took full cost of package in GBP£ from my credit card at time off booking – which meant I paid their bank a conversion charge which would not have been applied by my credit card issuer. Second time this has happened with this hotel group and future bookings will include an instruction to pass debits in Euros only.

Traveller’s tips: Do not under any circumstances miss the Rijksmuseum and the Dutch old masters. Stunning. Do not visit during the Queen’s Birthday (around 30 April) – everything is shut. Do get a 1-day unlimited bus travel ticket and visit Edam and Vollendam (€6 with the IAmsterdam discount card) for the chance to see two nice Dutch towns with canal, river and sea walks. Bus stop currently at the east front of Central station, but may move as redevelopment work completes.

This was not our first stay in Amsterdam, but was our first at the Crowne Plaza. We have previously stayed at the Botel, which we rated very highly, in part due to the fact it was cheap, the weather warm, and we spent very little time there. This time we were visiting Amsterdam in December, a proper hotel was needed, things can get really cold in Amsterdam and that is no time to be stuck on a draughty boat! We were able to get a great rate at the Crowne Plaza and hence that was our decision.

I think it is worthwhile explaining for those not yet in the know just how convenient Amstedam is. Schipol is serviced by the budget carriers and we flew by BMIbaby from EastMidlands. The flight was about an hour. With handbaggage only we were off the plane, onto the brilliant train system and safely holed up in our hotel less than 150 mins after arriving at East Midlands Airport. That's a faster car dropoff to hotel checkin timeframe than going by train to Edinburgh. Yet Amsterdam is so very different to anywhere in the UK. There are many places in the UK that can't make that timeframe, whether by car or rail. In short its an ideal weekend getaway.

The hotel is situated jst a 5 minute walk from Centraal Station, right slap bang in the middle of Amsterdam and just a short walk from many of its attractions. It is worth mentioning that in this regard Amsterdam is like many cosmopolitan cities, it has several major areas, you might be close to one, but you'll not be close to all, however Amsterdam is a very walkable city, and the CP is well positioned for that.

The Crowne Plaza itself was very plush, the room was extremely comfortable and everything worked. The room was immaculate and the whole hotel was scrupulously clean. We ate an evening meal there as this was the weekend of the huge snowfall in that closed Schipol airport and much of Amsterdam, it seems the Dutch dont bother about gritting, snowclearing or indeed any snowfall preperations at all. The night we dined in at the hotel, Amsterdam was all but un-navigable with abandoned cars and trams littering the streets, causing many restaurants and bars to close due to a lack of staff. Not so the Crowne Plaza which continued serenely through the disruption, providing faultless service and all the facilities.

I don't walk in the US much, so I was nervous about walking from C. Station, but it was a breeze. The area was in chaos bc I arrived on Queen's Day, but inside the hotel was tranquil. Staff helpful and friendly. My room was cozy and nice, all up-to-date. Breakfast was expensive, but convenient. Hotel walking distance to RLD, Coffee houses, AF house.
Best-lovely atmosphere and I felt safe by myself. Least-nothing-great hotel, maybe a bit pricey, but worth it if you expect perfection in your hotel.

Dear valued Guest,

Thank you for your review concerning your stay at our hotel, the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre. We are very pleased to read that you had a nice stay with us and that you found our staff to be very helpful and friendly.

It’s good to see that you experienced the walk from the Central train station to our hotel as ‘a breeze’. Indeed the hotel is located in the heart of the centre of Amsterdam across the train station with fast links to Schiphol Airport and major cities throughout the Netherlands and beyond. This makes it very easy to travel around the city in every way.

Again thank you very much for your positive feedback, and we do hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre.

Kind regards,

Five minutes walk from Centraal Station, so easy to find - also easy to leave on the return journey. The staff wer very helpful, and the concierge advised of the impending queues at the Van Gogh museum (he wasn't wrong) when he sold us tickets (at no extra cost). Tram tickets were for sale here also. The room was comfortable, and spacious, and breakfast was up to expectations. We had a champagne (Cava) breakfast on our 30th wedding anniversary (02/05/11), but that is available to every guest. The service was excellent at every level, and no one appeared to be judged by the professional staff. The hotel appears to be off the radar of stag and hen weekends (the price is right here then), and offers a tranquil environment - we would not have known that the queens weekend (Dutch Royal Family) was going on outside until we hit the street..

Booked this hotel on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews and were very satisfied -- just a short walk from the Central Station and conveniently located for lots of trams that provided good transportation to everywhere we wanted to go. The hotel was 4 star quality, very clean and attractive. They let us into our room when we arrived at approximately 10 AM, for which we were very grateful after an all-night flight with no sleep. The concierge and all the staff were very friendly and helpful.
