The Renaissance Amsterdam surpassed our expectations. Upon check in there was quite a lenghtly queue but hotel management called on extra staff to ensure all check in desks were manned.
The room was modern and well sized. King bed was definitely on the soft side, which may or may not suit travellers. The view was that back into the centre of the building so nothing spectacular. Bathroom was small but serviceable. Bathrobes and slippers available in the room.
Housekeeping were very friendly and replenished used items upon each service.
Breakfast was included in our room rate and consistented of your standard breakfast buffet choices with hot & continental options. Beware though that the wait at the egg station can be extremely long and stock of other items are not replenished as frequently as they should be. I wouldn't pay the EUR24 for breakfast though if its not included in your rate as that is way over priced for what you will get.
I didn't use the Fitness Room but it did seem quite well equipped.
The location of the hotel is defintiely an advantage. Located only a 5 minute walk from Centraal Station, its perfect for those arriving by train. The hotel is located just at the start of the Jordaan district which is great for cafes, bars and coffeeshops.
The hotel lacks the little touches to make it a true 5 star property, such as newspapers in the morning but overall I would defintiely recommend this hotel to fellow travellers.
