It's rare these days for a 5 star hotel to actually live up to that but Hotel Okura does, in every way.
From the moment we arrived at the airport and called the hotel for information and directions they were great, we arrived 3 hours before check in and they did all they could to ensure a room was ready for us...and it was, not only that....it was a stunning corner room with breathtaking views!
The hotel itself is beautiful...grand and elegant radiating class with the 5* service and treatment you expect when paying £350 upwards per night...regardless of the price, this hotel is worth every penny.
Breakfast was exceptional, catered for everyone with everything you could imagine for breakfast, from waffles to omelettes to fruit, cereal, meats, pastries...it was all there and all great quality and fresh...I miss it already!
We made use of the spa facilities and again, very impressive...no crowds of people, felt very exclusive, very clean and well maintained with a pool, jacuzzi...sauna, steam room etc...everything you expect and more.
The hotel itself is a short way from the central bustle but easy to get to, we walked to tram stop 16 or 24 which was a 10 minute walk and the tram took about 10 minutes too and was very frequent.
I will come back to Amsterdam over and over again and each time, I will only ever stay here.
I cannot recommend it highly enough!
