I just came back from the okura amsterdam yesterday, had a lovely stay
Rooms- i had a standard room, which was nice, huge tv, mini bar and a view over looking the canal which was nice.
There was some mould on the shower curtain, so didnt use the curtain at all,also in the bath was some grey dented stains, these were the only 2 problems, the freebies were topped up,the rooms kept clean, my room was a little bit old fashioned, so i think the room needs an upgrade, the lamps were quite shabby, but for the price i paid it was good.
Breakfast-which was included in my package: can i firstly just say Kim, is a credit to the la camelia, so helpfu, friendly and very attentive! you should keep her! also juan was just as friendly and nice.
The selection was very good, had some weird things like salad and soup, but as they have a lot of japenese guests its understandable.
They had crossaints, donuts,pastries, cold meats, cheeses, diffrent breads, fruit, strawberries grapes etc, yogurts, smoothies, granola and a lot of cerals, they also do pancakes which were good, sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs, tomatoes etc, muffins, it was a huge selection!
They do ask you for a deposit, which is 100 euros per night of your stay, which was not mentioned when i booked, this is hotel policy, i am now having trouble getting them to take my money off hold, even though i am back in the country, they do not answer my e-mails, this is very sad as everything else in the hotel is of the highest standard.
The thing i liked most was to get the lift to work you had to use your key card, which is a great idea, all in all this is a good hotel.
Just get the traam from central st, number 25, when you get off at cornelis troopstein, it even says okura hotel, the area that the hotel is in, is lovely, it is a 4 min walk to the shops, the is a grocery store calld AH, you must try the thai place for food, i dont know what its called but its a dark red shop, there is also a nice bakery on the corner opposite a tram stop, the canal next door is nice and there are loads of coffee shops around.
The internet is expensive 6 dollars for 1 hour or 12 dollars for the day.
The pillows and linen are of a high quality and you can tell the difference.
