“perfectly located charming hotel for a high price”
Reviewed 16 July 2011

i definitely liked the hotel because of it's great location, nice stuff, comfortable rooms, old building and decoration.
the hotel is perfectly located, just in the middle of the action. there is shopping street, lots of bars and restaurants just around the corner.
charming old building, very small but comfortable rooms with large windows. small clean bathroom with a window.
the price is high but the hotel worth it. would stay there again.

My husband and I stayed here for last Christmas and New Years. My email correspondence prior to arrival was always promptly responded to and the staff went above and beyond my expectations in filling my requests. We had a Jr Suite with a balcony and it was amazing. Watching the fireworks on New Years was a priceless view. The club lounge was also a great treat. To be able to sit and relax right in front of a pedestrian only zone and watch the flow of people with a beverage was terrific. I am not sure what was best - the room, the staff or the location. I would recommend this hotel and have already booked again for the upcoming holiday.

The good points is the location (close to centrum station and a mere 5 min max walk), staff, cleanliness, decor....and the of course the bed.!!
Just to repeat previously reviews of that the internet is crazy for 20euros (minus 20% (16euros)) for Platinum members) for 24 hours (which I might add is TOTAL for 24 hours...not as most places of 24 Hours of USAGE!).
They did give me 2 free drinks voucher being a platinum member must be what previous members have been complaining about as normally you get 1 free breakfast and one free drink voucher. Although, seeing I'd already paid the ridiculous amount of 25euros for the breakfast for 8 days (yes that's eight days.....you make the maths).
Overall it is a very nicely decorated hotel, which feels new and clean and to be completely honest it’s the staff and location are the best thing about this hotel.
Would I stay again?
It depends.......Being on business the internet was a real issue for me.....but honestly, I would stay possibly without the ridiculous price for the normal standard of breakfast for this rated hotel!. Also, think twice on their loyalty issues as previous reviewers have said so don’t expect anything more than a free drink or maybe a free breakfast (ONE of course!!) even if you stay for over 8 nights!!!

Back for my 3rd visit. Close to train station and all to see And do in Amsterdam. Large-ish rooms for Europe. Spotless facility. Unsurpassed service. Will stay here again.

A perfectly managed hotel. Centrally located. Very courteous staff. Excellent facilities and everything works. Stayed in the club room with access to the club lounge which itself well maintained. Somehow the free Internet access provided in the club room never worked properly- something really needs to be done

I have stayed at this hotel many times, always for business. Very good location, nice quiet rooms, very good restaurant. This time I was very disappointed that the wi-fi internet was not working. I was not informed of this major inconvenience when I checked in, and I was repeatedly assured by the front desk staff that the problem would be resolved "within an hour". Except that it wasn't. A business hotel without internet is simply unacceptable. The response of the front desk staff has been even worse. I received profuse apologies and the assurance that the problem will be resolved soon. That is a day late and a dollar short. The front desk should have clearly informed me that internet was not working, in which case I would have gone to another hotel. As it was, their misinformation caused me lots of problems, loss of business, etc. I guess refunding the payment for non-performance is not part of the Crowne Plaza's policy.

I stayed here for three nights, the room was excellent, spacious with a very comfortable bed. They also had aromatherapy to help you sleep! The bath was also very relaxing after a long flight. I found the location very good, with a short walk to the train station, trams everywhere and a quick walk to the city centre.
