“Convenient base in Amsterdam, well run”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

I stayed at this hotel for two nights at the end of February and again for two nights in March. I was extremely impressed with how personable and service oriented the staff were, even though this is a large property. Particular kudos to the concierges and to the front desk staff. I did find a first floor room assignment to be a little too noisy for me, but was promptly moved at the first opportunity. The staff made a great effort to get us into rooms early as we had returned on an early flight. Crisp white sheets, functioning wifi, and an excellent although expensive breakfast buffet are all part of the program. Would be glad to stay here again. A+, be sure to join the IHG reward program too!

I chose this hotel because it is one long block from Central Station Amsterdam. I was received very well by reception, and my request for a room with a view of trees was granted. I was also given an appreciated discount on breakfast charges, which made life much more relaxed. My room was on the street, but so well soundproofed I never heard a tram passing by. The bed was so comfortable, and the bath was small but well appointed. The great advantage is that the trams to the museum stop just in front, and you can buy tickets and transport in the hotel. The lounge bar area was very attractive, so much so it becomes an office for people attending conferences. But I did not have need of it, but it was very attractive and welcoming.

Breakfast was plentiful, and if you ask they will prepare your eggs as you like, and make toast for you as well. I would say after reading many of the comments that I found everyone with this hotel staff professional and friendly. I needed a special extension cord in my room, and the young man did an excellent job and was very courteous. I would certainly stay here again, and will also recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask to see your room..and the front ones are very light and quiet...not like most big cities.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.

It is wonderful to read that you enjoyed your stay in our hotel and have chosen the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre because of its location. I agree with you in saying that the location is very convenient, as you mention the Central Railway station is located within 5 minutes walking distance and also many other types of public transport stop right in front of the hotel and will take you to all the highlights of Amsterdam. Our concierge will be happy to assist you by giving advice what the best places are to visit in Amsterdam and of course what the best restaurants are to visit while you are here.

Furthermore it is a pleasure to read that you appreciated the services delivered by our staff and that you will certainly stay with us again. The Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre team is already looking forward to welcoming you back!

Kind regards,

My sister and I enjoyed a weekend here to celebrate her birthday. It is within very easy walking distance from the railway station (about two minutes) and ideally situated for all attractions. The staff were amazing throughout and very helpful - they even gave my sister a birthday card and biscuits. We had a club room which was fine, but I thought the bathroom was a little small for the cost of the room - it was also at the front of the building which was quite noisy during the night - the pillow spray provided helped us sleep though! The access to the club lounge was useful - but the first night it was pretty dull and not much food, so we paid to drink in the bar. The second night it was very different, with lovely snacks and a good atmosphere. It is worth having a club room, as you get 15% off food and drink and free wife. The concierge helped us find a nice place to eat nearby.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper I would suggest a room at the rear of the building. Club rooms offer acc...

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.

It is wonderful to read that you have chosen the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre to spend your sister's birthday in.

Furthermore it is great to read that you were able to have a good sleep in our hotel and that the aromatherapy package was able to assist you with this. This package includes two mini solutions for a better night’s sleep. One is named ‘ breath in’ ; this eucalyptus spray clears the head and helps you breathe more easily with a blend of Frankincense. The other one is the deep calm pillow spray; this a fusion of calming oils to relax and calm including lavender, Vetivert and Camomile.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back one day!

The hotel has a nice drop zone for people and luggage right outside the entrance. I arrived by foot from a 8 minute walk from the train station. Front desk very good and helpful. I had asked for a early check in but didn’t get that, because I had asked for a quiet room at the back. Gym was ok but the shower flooded and light in sauna was out. Food was average. Conference room ok, but when the water boiler kicked in there was some disturbance. Felt the safety was good. There was enough staff and the seemed very aware of your needs. They were ready with towel and bar and smoothie every time I came back from my running sessions, great! I liked the decorations in the common areas.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back are quieter but no view

We stayed 4 nights and had a great stay. We have been looking for a quiet hotel in Amsterdam and have finally found it. Amsterdam can be a party city and therefore loud. This hotel is nice and quiet on the inside regardless of what was happening on the outside. The staff were always friendly and helpful.

You couldn't ask for a better location only one block from Centraal Station. No need for the trolly, just walk one block.

My wife and I decided to visit Amsterdam for the weekend for a short anniversary treat. We chose the CP as we're IHG platinum members and the hotel has amazing reviews. The whole trip exceeded my expectations for the following reasons:

- The location is possibly the best in Amsterdam (a few minutes from the Damrak, but far enough away not to be bothered by the noise / excess foot traffic of tourists).

- Check-in was excellent: Rik Drenth, the duty manager, upgraded our room, offered dining / sightseeing tips; offered a brief hotel tour and escorted us to the club lounge for drinks.

- Our room was a spacious junior suite that had good quality cosmetics (Rituals) and all the other extras (robe, slippers etc) you'd hope for.

- Upon hearing that we had a special occasion, Melissa Grauwde, the guest relations liaison, arranged a surprise bottle of champagne, fresh fruit and cake as a welcome / celebratory gift. This was a class touch.

- The lounge is very good value for money - it serves Heineken on tap, wine throughout the day, breakfast and snacks. This made the whole trip quite cheap, as we made the most of the included benefits.

Overall, I had a great time and was massively impressed by the comprehensive offering that the Crowne Plaza provided. The staff I've named above were also particularly impressive and made us feel welcomed with very personalised service. I've stayed in a lot of Amsterdam hotels, but would choose this one above the rest.

Room Tip: Pay more for a club room, it offers everything.

We have stayed in several Crowne Plazas but this one was the best one. The rooms are not very large but they are very up to date and very clean. Location is just a few steps away from the shopping center and Breakfast is great but a little pricey for families.
