“Good option in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

We spend 3 days in this property and overall it is a good place to stay in Amsterdam. The central station is just 7 minutes walking distance from the Hotel and you are not far from Dam Square.

The rooms are small but well-appointed with a good TV channel selection. There is also a kettle in the room to heat water. Breakfast was very good with plenty of options and service quite good too most of the time.

The closest supermarket is in the street behind the Hotel (Albert Heijn) so it will be worth it to go there to buy some water at reasonable prices and not the inflated prices that you get in all the other shops around downtown.

Keep in mind that the minibar in the rooms will charge you directly in your bill, just when you move any drink even though you may not consume that drink, but they will withdraw the charges at reception once you confirm that you didn´t use the minibar at all.

Service from everybody we encounter in the Hotel was excellent except in the Executive Lounge (not so fine in the evenings as it was too crowded).

The hotel is within walking distance from the central station, where you get off the shuttle from the airport. As we mostly walked around the city, we found it a great starting point for exploring and navigating the small canal side streets of this part Amsterdam.

Nice rooms, great beds, and professional staff.

Basically, this is a Marriott hotel, similar in what it offers to other Marriotts around the world.

It was great staying at Renaissance. Our room was perfectly clean, location is perfect and service was amazing.
What I liked about Renaissance:
-Service! Their concierge is amazing. My friend and I were offered help by two different members of staff. One was Casper and unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the other member. Casper was really good at his job. My friend asked him for advice on museums to visit (I had already visited most of them during my previous visits) and he gave her great information on her choices and helped her decide. She was really pleased with his advice.
-Cleaning. You can't really ask for more. Everything was flawless.
-Location. I am used to staying closer to Leidseplein but I can't complain. That location was also great with walking distance to most of the attractions.
-Room was big with 2 single beds (as we requested), lots of storage space and a flat screen tv with international tv channels.
Room for improvement:
-Wifi. I find it really odd when you have to pay extra for wifi nowadays especially in an expensive hotel. The first 2 nights my friend and I would spend time at the lobby being online. For some reason the other 2 nights we had wifi in the room. Was it a mistake? Did they change it? No idea.
-Minibar-fridge. There was a notice that if you remove any item from the mini bar for more than 30" it will automatically be charged to your bill. Also the note said that it is not a fridge but a mini bar. There was some room for personal drinks storage but it wasn't big enough. We had removed some items to store our water and put them back later. As a big surprise we had been charged for these items. Fortunately they removed our charges after we explained that everything was still there.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay.

Nice large room. Very clean. Larger than expected hotel. Superb central location. Easy walk from central train station. Concierge service very helpful. Buying tickets for tram and museums at hotel is easy and saves waiting in line at museums.
Breakfast at hotel around 28 euros.
Only negative no free internet.
Would stay there again when in Amsterdam.

This hotel had some of the best staff I have ever experienced. Casper, hope I spelt it correctly, was the epitome of warm, welcoming, friendly and helpful. He offered my boyfriend and I personalized advice on what to do in the city during our stay and what time to visit the sites to avoid crowds. I truly can not say enough about how he enhanced our stay for us. Apart from that, the hotel itself and our room were very clean. The club lounge is great with excellent choices for breakfast, afternoon snacks and happy hour. Definitely take advantage of it. The location does not really get much better with everything being walking distance nearby. Yet the area was quiet at night, even considering there was some construction going on in the street directly in front of the hotel. Superb stay and would definitely recommend it.

I can't say enough about the great service at this hotel. Kit at check in showed patience and undstanding and did his best by resolving a messed up reservation. He is a credit to the hotel and started off my three days there on such a bright note, I will most certainly be back. The location is great as well; an easy walk from the Central Station and close to many attractions. In addition, Kip offered suggestions on places to visit, restaurants, and what can be found close to the hotel of interest.

Who doesn't love a room with a comfy robe and slippers?!
