“great hotel great location”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

We stayed at this hotel during a long trip through Europe. For us it had a perfect location (one block to the right of central station and a then turn left and 2 blocks more) The hotel was very nice, modern and clean. The best thing was the staff. We were checked in by Sylvia or maybe it was Silve and she became our biggest asset during our stay. She was very helpful in giving us advice about the red light dist., coffee shops, money exchange, Ann Frank house. She was very easy to talk to ...really an amazing lady...Staff if you happen to read this she deserves a raise or at least recognition!
When we go back to Amsterdam we would not even consider staying anywhere else.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.

It is wonderful to read that you liked the location of Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre, as you mention this is the perfect place to start when exploring the city of Amsterdam.

It is also a great pleasure to read that you enjoyed the services provided by one of our Front Desk agents. It is always a pleasure to read when staff is delivering the service they do.

Wonderful to read that you mention that you will return to the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre when returning to the city. The Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre team is already looking forward to welcoming you back!

Kind regards,

Maurice Janssen

I took my wife to this hotel for a couple of nights to celebrate her birthday. We had a lovely time. we booked a club room, and it was spacious with good facilities. The club lounge was a nice additional feature, and the location of the hotel, within easy walking distance of the central station, was ideal.
The staff however were what made it special, with all of them showing a very positive and guest-friendly attitude, which only went to make the weekend more special.
Thanks to the concierge for recommending and booking some great local restaurants, and thanks too to Melissa and the team for ensuring our visit was a very happy one. I'm sure we will return.

Room Tip: The Club rooms are spacious and quiet.

As has has been written, location great, staff welcoming, concierge had great recommendations fora Thai dinner. Umbrellas available for guests, newspapers at your door. Asked for extra robe, slippers and towels-delivered in minutes. Large American style room but need to upgrade coffee inrooms.Instant doesn't cut it any more in hotel rooms. Little choice on tv.
Ate at Dorius, slow service, limited menu but food was good and not too expensive.
Tram stops 3 minutes away, Dam square 10, AF house 15, train station 5, taxi from river cruise dock15 euro.For some reason I didn not even have to pay for internet
Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for one away from street-no view but no noise either.

Wonderful hotel in a great location. The staff are an absolute credit they were all polite, helpful and extremely accommodating especially when they realised we were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary. Food was extremely good and the club lounge most welcome to relax after a day sight seeing. Special thanks to Michael who checked us in and went out of his way to allocate a beautiful jnr suite with awsome views of the City and also to Samantha who sent 'goodies' to the room that made our Anniversary extra special. Thank you

All the amenities. Close to train from the airport (walk) , the Dam, and very central for walking around. Luxury bedding, upscale rooms, club room, good breakfast and great friendly staff. The staff recognizes and acknowledges you with a "welcome home" after 1 day. We had to leave to spend a couple of days near the airport and stayed at Raddison Blu after. Absolutely no comparison in 4 star hotels. I would gladly stay here again.

We recently stayed at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre for 6 nights. The hotel is well located to be accessed from the Train Station. The hotel staff are kind, helpful, and very friendly, always greeting us in the morning when we departed and welcoming us back at the end of the day. As Holiday Inn Hotel members, were offered free WIFI and 15% off of any restaurant charges during our stay. Inigo Viu checked us in and made us feel very welcome and appreciated. We were upgraded to a king bed room which was very modern and provided us with wonderful amenities. We particularly appreciated the coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cookies, and mini chocolates when we arrived back at the hotel in the late afternoon to recharge our batteries. The bed was great and the room was quiet so we could get a good night's sleep. The WIFI was fast and problem free. We only ate at the restaurant one evening but the food was delicious and presented very graciously by attentive staff. The concierge service was a wonderful resource of information and also directed us to several excellent well priced restaurants nearby. My husband had a small accident while we were there and the hotel staff went out of their way to ensure he was OK and referred us to a local doctor who was attentive and caring. This is a wonderful property to stay at in Amsterdam!!!!
