“Great Stay in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Close to everything, Amsterdam city is relatively small, but I always personally enjoy staying near the Centraal Station, which I learned this weekend was built on 8000 wood pilings. Booked a club level room, on the 4th floor, but the club lounge is located on the main level, so I may think the hotel offers club rooms on different floors. Club lounge offerings were very good, for jet lagged travelers however, the fact it wasn't open 24 hours was a bit disappointing, but not entirely unexpected. Plenty of late night food options in Amsterdam, or even in the minibar are snacks, and the hotel has a limited 24 hour room service offering. Pizza I think and maybe some other simple items. The auto bill mini bar is a pain however. Staff is excellent, our corner room, luckily assigned, I might add, was the largest hotel room I've ever had in Europe. Small mishap on my bill was addressed and a bottle of wine delivered to our room to offer apologies and a note of correction.
'New' restaurant in lobby was offering 2 for 1 drinks between 1700-1800 and 2300-2400. Decent deal for a drink before and after dinner. Our trip was a romantic week in Europe, Valentine's Day in Paris and a long weekend at this great hotel in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Arrive right at check in time ask for the X01 rooms. These are the corners that look over the road i...

Dear valued Guest,

Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor following your recent visit to the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre. It is always wonderful to read feedback on our property and being shared with the travel community.

I am very intrigued to find that our central station is build on 8000 wood pilings. Never though of this before but quite understandable since Amsterdam is below sea level and not quite build on the strongest surfaces available.

The clubrooms are indeed scattered throughout the hotel. These rooms are equipped with a Nespresso coffee maker and upgraded bathroom amenities for instance and, when booked as such, access to Clublounge with complimentary internet access and an array of drinks and snacks, pastries and candy throughout the day and breakfast in the morning. I am sorry to read you expected our lounge to be open during the night. Something we should indeed take in consideration for our jetlagged guests.

I am sory to read there was mistake on your invoice and hope we rectified it to your satisfaction.

Besides the happy hours did you lunch or dine at our restaurant? New Dorrius Restaurant and Bar provides you with typical Dutch fare prepared with an International twist. We are sure there something enjoyable on our menu for all our guests.

We hope you are able to come and visit us again here at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre and New Dorrius Restaurant and Bar.

Kind regards,

Jaap Roomeijer,
Food and Beverage Manager

We visited this hotel for the weekend, and what a wonderful choice it turned out to be. The hotel is an easy five minutes walk from the station. Despite looking fairly ordinary from the outside, this hotel is beautifully decorated inside in a sleek and modern style. It is spotlessly clean throughout. Our room was spacious, with an enormous and very comfortable bed. The room had everything you could hope for, from a safe to complimentary slippers. Every member of the hotel staff we encountered was cheerful and friendly and they seemed delighted to be of service, going over and above their duties. We had booked a "Club Room", which gives you access to the hotel Club Room. This is a comfortable private lounge equipped with complimentary wine, beer, tea, coffee and soft drinks. A variety of snacks was also provided free - peanuts, biscuits, sweets, fruit, pastries and desserts. Frankly, this must have saved us a fortune. Free internet access and a printer is also available in the Club Room. Breakfast was delicious. There was a vast array of food - whatever you like to eat for breakfast, you will find it here, even if that includes a glass of champagne! There was no noise at night and the hotel is well-placed for walking to the Dam Square area. We couldn't fault it. Look no further - book this one!

Room Tip: Choose the "Club Room" package - well worth it for all the free drink and snacks!

Dear valued Guest,

Many thanks for the wonderful and detailed review you posted on your recent visit to Amsterdam and the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre. We are delighted you shared your experience with the travel community.

It is great to read you enjoyed the Clubroom you booked with us. Indeed once booked, you can find many benefits and we are delighted to find you were pleased with the offerings in the Clublounge.

Our New Dorrius Restaurant and Bar indeed offers an American Breakfast buffet with many offerings from cold cuts to omelettes made to order and bacon and sausages as well as different jams and sweet breakfast toppings typical to the dutch breakfast tradition.

The hotel is, as described, conveniently located just steps away from Central Station with an easy connection to Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport. Also the various Amsterdam sites like the canals and canal houses, Anne Frank House and Dam square and Royal Palace are in walking distance of the Hotel.

The hotel was completely renovated in 2009, we are glad the choices made are appreciated by you as by many of our guests.

We look forward welcoming you back to Amsterdam and hope you will give us the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre.

Kind regards,

Dear valued Guest,

Thank you for you kind review commenting on your stay with us.

Your review being short, comments on a lot of things. The location is indeed very central in Amsterdam City Centre. Just steps away from Amsterdam Central Station and near a lot of Amsterdam favorites such as Dam Square and the Royal Palace, the nine streets shopping area, The canals with typical Amsterdam Canal Houses.

We are pleased to read that you furthemore enjoyed the cleanliness of the hotel and overall enjoyed your stay with us. It is always nice to hear guests would recommend us to their colleagues and friends.

We hope to be able to welcome you back to the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre.

Just a quick review of a 2 night stay with friends.

Firstly the location is fantastic! It is a 5 minute walk from Central station and we found it really easily. Check in was quick and all the staff greeted us with a nice friendly smile.

Rooms were very comfortable and had all the facilities you would need, safe, ironing board, hairdryer, tea and coffee. One really good feature was the room had 3-pin UK plugs, as well as 2-pin European plugs.

Although Wifi was chargeable, you can goto the Business Centre on the -1 level and use the internet and printer there if you do need to check in online for your flight. Which was free of charge!!

On our last day , we checked out but we were still able to store our luggage free, which was great!

Overall, no problems or issues! Would definately book here if I ever need to stay in Amsterdam again!

Firstly i would like to say that the actual hotel is in an ideal location and the decor makes you feel so comfortable as soon as you enter. But in saying that it is a very classy hotel with loads of extras . We had been told in error when checking in our rate included breakfast,so when we went to the restaurant the next morning we were informed that we were not on the list.The receptionist said that we now couldnt have the reduced rate now has we would have had to book it on check in?Obviously had we not been told our rate included breakfast we would have done so,i was a bit upset about that but we left the hotel that day and ate elsewhere. But this was totally rectified by the manager who on our return to the hotel that night had left us a card with an apoplogy asking us to contact him. My Husband did so the next morning and he gave us breakfast on the house.Which we were not expecting atall.Also i had woken in the morning in need of tampons and not able to find any in the hotel bathroom i asked at reception.Within 5 minutes a whole box was delivered to my door. Also i must mention the increible conciege desk who are always there to offer fantastic advice. In conclusion i would totally recommend this hotel to all my friends superb hotel ,superb room staff amazing ,even though we had that slight problem it was delt with so professionally that we left very happy. Thankyou Amsterdam Crowne Plaza

Room Tip: we over looked main street interesting to see whats going on ,no noise issues

Stayed here on a business Trip February 2012 and the Crowne Plaza fulfilled all of our expectations. The check in was easy, quick and courteous, and the room was immaculately cleaned with a good range of facilities. There is a pleasant lounge area, and the bar is bright and popular with guests. The prices may seem a little steep at almost 6 Euros for a beer, but the dingy looking pub a couple of doors away charges 5. The hotel is just across the road from Amsterdam Central station, and a few minutes from Dam Square and other attractions. In the immediate vicinity there are a number of bars, steakhouses, kebab shops and cafes, and right across the road you will find Resin, one of Amsterdam's famous coffee shops. Checkout was as smooth as check in, and I will definitely consider the Crown Plaza for my next stay in Amsterdam.

Dear valued Guest,

Thank you for staying at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre hotel and for sharing your experiences with the travel community.

We are happy to find you were able to have a bit of fun during your stay. The hotel is indeed centrally located and in the vicinity of Central Station and all the city centre of Amsterdam has to offer. Dam Square and the Royal palace, 9 streets shopping area, red light district and many other Amsterdam novelties are within walking distance of the hotel.

Allthough the hotel is in the middel of the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam we have some great areas in the hotel to relax and unwind. We have a small gym and sauna area located on the -1 level of the hotel. We also have the lobby connect which provides you with an area where you can have a glass of wine near the fireplace, watch some television, read a book or hold a little meeting with colleagues.

We furthermore have a clublounge where, once a clubroom is booked, one can sit back and relax in a private, serene area of the hotel. Breakfast, drinks and all day snacks are served, computers and internet are available as well are magezines and family board games.

We hope on your next visit to Amsterdam you won't just consider us, but book with us. We will be looking forward to be at your service once again.
