“Safe Haven”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

This is our second time staying here, and with good reason. I don't know if it's because they know how to make Americans feel comfortable, or if I just have a taste for business hotels, but this place just calms me down and makes me feel better. Location, cleanliness and comfort are the most important amenities to me in a hotel, and this place knocks it out of the park. 5 stars in a 4 star hotel.

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor.

It is wonderful to read that this was your second stay at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre and that this stay was as comfortable as your previous one. I agree with you in saying that the location of the hotel is very convenient. As you mention it is within walking distance of the Central Railway station and close to many highlights Amsterdam has to offer.

We are already looking forward to welcoming you back during any future visits to the city of Amsterdam!

Kind regards,

We stayed here for 3 days in July and it was perfect! The hotel is perfectly situated for all the city centre sites and very convenient for the train station and the tram. The staff were friendly and welcoming throughout the hotel. The food in the restaurant was very good and reasonably priced as were the drinks in the bar.
The room was excellent with much needed air conditioning and everything else you would expect from a good hotel! The beds were comfortable and the bathroom had plenty of complimentary toiletries etc in.
All in all a wonderful stay and we will definitely return to this hotel should we visit Amsterdam again!

Dear valued guest,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the travel community.

It is wonderful to read that you enjoyed your 3-day city trip at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre. I agree with you in saying that the location of the hotel is ideal when exploring the city of Amsterdam. As you mention the Central Railway station is located within walking distance and within reach of many of the highlights which Amsterdam has to offer.

Furthermore it is great to read that you enjoyed having dinner and drinks in our New Dorrius restaurant and bar. Our modern New Dorrius Restaurant & Bar offers a relaxing atmosphere. Enjoy delicious Dutch classics or international favourites. Meet each other for a cup of coffee during the day in our New Dorrius Bar, or for a cocktail in the evening.

It is great to read that you will definitely return to our property, we are already looking forward to welcoming you back!

This hotel is walking distance to Amsterdam Centraal station, very convenient. The rooms are nice and modern. Bed is super comfy and rooms are clean. There was a nice "Sleep Works" spray in the room to help with sleeping as well as chocolates left every night at turn down service. Also, the coffee biscuits in the room are so good!

Hotel staff were really friendly and welcoming.

The buffet breakfast was the best we had during our Europe holiday. There was a lot of choice food available. Service at breakfast was great.

Room wifi worked well.

Would stay here again.

It is wonderful 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 at Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre!

What a nice hotel!
Really nice and comfortable room. Got a street view room, but it was really quiet.
The staff was really friendly and did not hesitate a second to help out.
The breakfast included everything one needed.
The location is perfect for a city weekend, only a few hundred meters from the train station.
I would defiantly stay here again.

I've stayed in many hotels worldwide and would put this one amongst the very top for ease of access (to train station and Amsterdam sights), comfort, quiet, and hotel staff courtesy and friendliness. We stayed a couple of months ago for a few nights when traveling back to the US via Schiphol Airport from Venice and a Mediterranean cruse, returning after a couple of years from a similar stay at the Crowne Plaza after taking a river cruise in Holland and Belgium. Very modern and comfortable rooms, staff always welcoming after daily explorations and helpful for any need. Details in room considerable, I enjoyed the K-cup room coffee machines. Only suggestion for improvement in the hotel is the breakfasts, which as others have noted, while good quality and complete are very crowded and exceptionally expensive (we got a slight discount for hotel points); we were motivated to find other breakfasts in Amsterdam. However, in total we really enjoyed our stays and plan to return again in the future when visiting the city!

We were so grateful that this was truly in walking distance of the main station when we arrived in Amsterdam. The Hotel was very accommodating in arranging a early and late check out for us. The Hotel is typical of the crown Plaza group, great service, comfortable and clean rooms with good linen and special touches like the sleep spray and good sized rooms. Although we were in the heart of Amsterdam we did not have a problem with noise and the sound proofing in the hotel was very good. The hotel has a newly renovated restaurant where we had lovely breakfasts. The staff are very helpful and made a number of suggestions to make sure we made the most of the city. This hotel is very accessible to the docs and we walked to board our river cruise. The location is amazing and you could walk or take bicycles wherever you needed to be. This is a Great place to stay.

Just got back from our stay at the Crowne Plaza, and I must say you won't find anywhere in Amsterdam better than here. As everyone has said the location is great; it's less than a 5 minute walk from the station so no need for a taxi, the main Dam square is also right around the corner and the Red Light District is less than 10 minute walk.
On arriving at the hotel we was met by a very friendly receptionist who told us we had been upgraded to a bigger room as it was my friends birthday, we was also given lots of decorations for a small fee as a surprise which was very much appreciated.
We ate at the Dorrius restaurant one evening and had a lovely steak which is as good as any top restaurant in Amsterdam.
Overall, the hotel grounds were very modern and had a great feel to it and would recommend anyone stay here, and will have no problem telling friends to make a booking.
