“very correct”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

before starting my opinion I doubted in putting normal or very good...to tell the true is a good hotel more than normal but definetely is not a very good one. The staff is very polite and correct in every detail but lack of emotions...is like they go by the rules but will never do the extra mile than as I client I want to see...or expect. The concierge staff did help and gave good recomendations. Do not think will stay there again but if you are looking for correct hotel this one is a good choice.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Okura recently and as always am impressed with the unobtrusive service from all of the staff. To my delight the outside terrace was open and I enjoyed an afternoon enjoying the sun as I watched the many boats traverse the canal opposite the hotel. Very quickly it became time for dinner and the fixed course menu I enjoyed of a caesar salad with prawns and a main of duck breast served three different ways along with sommelier selected wines just topped the afternoon off. A truly memorable experience!! The service culture extended into every facet of my stay, from the doormen upon arrival to the guest room attendants. Exceptional!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the canal.

this hotel is just located right besides the canal with sidewalk and you may easily board a canal cruise from the hotel jetty and cruise along the canal. this hotel is located approximately 15 minutes away from the airport, perhaps it's a Saturday and there's no traffic jam.

upon arrival at the hotel, we received a warm welcome by the front desk staffs and when we finally gets to our rooms (3 altogether), we are absolutely stunned by it's tasteful furnishing in the room. mine especially is a corner room, #1124, besides having more space (quite a large room by the normal European standard) it has 2 wide window panels which make the room look bright and of course it comes with stunning view of the city. bathroom is has nice detailing of amenities and also best is the Nespresso coffee machine in room, which is a big plus to their hospitality, as I love good coffee. I have never seen a mini bar so stuffed with varieties of drinks, but some of the food in the mini bar are expired though. room is squeaky clean and bed is so comfortable. I have 2 single beds joined and make the bed extremely large for me living alone, my friends likes to hangout in my room coz of the large space and big bed where they could just sit on and watch the football final on Sunday night.

they also have an extensive room service menu, which is quite surprising, as most of the city hotels I have been in Europe have very limited choices. however, with all the good things that happened, we have one big disappointment, which is the Michelin star Japanese restaurant is closed for the summer and will only resume on 19th July 2014. we booked our stay in this hotel entirely because of this Michelin star Japanese restaurant, which it the talk of town, even taxi driver know about it when we told him to send us to Okura Hotel. this is such a great shame. anyway, we managed to land a dinner at the other Japanese restaurant which specialized in teppanyaki, is superb. we are served by a skilful Japanese chef who has so much respect for his customers (we are sharing table with other in-house guests coz we are only 3 persons). the food taste at their best quality and freshness. I had the best lamb in Zurich, but the best beef in this teppanyaki restaurant in Amsterdam, but the beef is not wagyu.

I am so impressed with the housekeeping, when they get the chance to clean my room, they will know where to arrange stuffs that I leave lying on the bed. I wish I have a maid like this.

tram stop just few walks away from the hotel, right on the main road. surrounding the hotels are good cafés for food and pastries. GPS works really well here if you need to get to a destination by foot and they are actually not that far away if you have the stamina to walk, enjoy Amsterdam by foot or if it's too difficult for you, rent a bike.

if you are coming to Amsterdam, you gotta stay in this hotel for sure, if not, at least come to eat at their Michelin star Japanese restaurant, the only Michelin star Japanese restaurant in Europe.

Room Tip: chose a corner room on a high floor and it has much better view of the city and much larger window p...

A really nice hotel, conveniently located a short walking distance from the Cornelis Troostplein tram stop (which is only a 7 minute trip direct from Museumplein!) Hotel was very clean and staff very professional and friendly. The Albert Cuyptmarkt is only a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The air conditioning in the room works very well, which is good to know for the few days in summer when it is hot. The value you get for this hotel is very good. The only knock on this hotel is the expensive breakfast buffet, but, hey, it is a high-grade hotel. Consider walking a few minutes down the street to several local cafes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room, as you will get a bigger window, with a bigger view!

This is definitely top class, it's a little bit outside the city centre but you can jump on a tram or take a 15 min taxi ride. The staff were polite happy to help with anything and very friendly. The rooms were bright and spacious and immaculate and we also had a lovely view over the city from our room on the 20th floor. You have a choice of restaurants including french cuisine which we decided to eat in, the restaurant staff were knowledgeable about all their dishes and wine, the food was presented lovely and all 4 courses we had were fabulous. We also had drinks in the bar on the 23rd floor, and the skyline view was amazing in the evening and the bar man was just lovely. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for pure luxury and will definitely return on my next visit to Amsterdam

Room Tip: Definitely rooms on the top floor for the view

We loved the hotel. It's a classical luxury hotel with great service. But the location isn't ideal as the closest tram to down town is about 15 minutes walk. The food is fantastic though and the view from the bedroom is incredible!

Excellent hotel. Staff were attentive and extremely helpful. The hotel is about 15 mins from the centre (Dam Square) but easily accessible as there are always taxi's on standby. Concierge were prompt and knowledgable about restaurants and places to go. Rooms were big, very well cleaned and comfortable. Complimentary coffee and wifi. 1 outdoor terrace area servings drinks and food which was brilliant, and the 23rd floor bar which offered stunning views of the city. We didn't eat in the hotel but the food sounded lovely (albeit pricey due to their Michelin star profile). I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone. Just a shame we didn't find out that bikes could be rented from them on day 1. More business / couples suited than families. Top hotel. Good restaurants locally on Albert Cuypmarket.
