We decided to have a few days break in Amsterdam. Chose the Moevenpick from a KLM recommendation. We were picked up from the station by a charming concierge and warmly welcomed at reception. We had upgraded to an executive room (on the 20th floor and with amazing views!) with breakfast and access to the executive lounge with complimentary drinks and snacks from 5 to 7pm. Fantastic value! The hotel staff could not do enough for us. The room was immaculate and the standard of the breakfast buffet was second to none. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. A real gem!

Room Tip: Upgrade to executive standard and you will get a room on the 19th or 20th floor with panoramic view...

This is a very modern hotel in design and is located next to the ferry port. It has a business like feel to it but due to it's size and spacious lobby it's ideal for groups (I guess they'd have to be for all the cruise/ferry people!).

The rooms were of a good size. There were three of us in our room (twin beds and sofa bed) and we still had sufficient space.

You can walk from Centraal Station to the hotel in 12 minutes from the back entrance of the station. If arriving on the train from the airport just take the escalater downstairs and follow sign for platform 15 which will lead you to the back entrance. Turn right coming out and you will be able to see the hotel.

Although it's not too long a walk from the centre, the road it's on is boring. but for value you can't beat it. Staff could be a little miserable, unhelpful and clueless to recommend any restaurants/bars. They think we all want to go to Leidesplein and Rembrandtsplein and can't seem to think outside this box. Concierge was often unattended. Btw Rembrandtsplein is a dump.
I did not eat in the restaurant but had a drink in the bar where service was slow and lack of knowledge on the cocktail list.

Leave plenty of time for Van Gogh Museum. We queued 2 hours (in the rain) and it's quite big inside. Although the queue for Anne Frank's House was long it moves quickly.

Would recommend Lime Bar in China Town who have Happy Hour until 9pm and their cocktails were delicious.

I liked the Moevenpick!

For me, the location was very good (just a 10 minute walk from Centraal Station) and when the weather is good its actually a really pleasant walk.

The welcome at check-in was fantastic and I was really impressed with the staff.

The room had a great view looking towards Centraal station, was very clean, had a good choice of TV channels and was really comfortable. It was modern and a nice base for our trip.

Breakfast was busy but a good selection of food.

Staff in the bar were friendly but they are very punctual with their closing times! If you arrive at 01:01 you will not get a drink!

Check-out was VERY busy but was handled efficiently.

All in all, a great hotel to choose in Amsterdam and I would most certainly book it on my next visit.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer great views!

Overall, we give this hotel and excellent rating. However, the service for dinner was extremely slow. The food was great once they served us...just very slow. Our room was on the 10th floor and we had a wonderful view of the busy harbor and our Celebrity ship right next to us!! We enjoyed watching our ship leave port from their deck, just yards from the ship!! They could use some umbrellas out there however. When the sun came out, it was rather hot, being directly in the sun. The entire hotel was excellent!! Our room was very nicely furnished and very modern. It is a good walk from the Dam Square area/Central Station, but the tram does pick up right out front. We will stay here again next time in Amsterdam...especially for a cruise.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the harbor. Higher up. We were on the side that overlooked the harbo...

Stayed here for three nights and was very impressed. Hotel is clean, spacious (especially for europe), and modern. The staff is very helpful. They are polite, very concise. The bar and room service (24h) are both tasty and quick.

It is a 15 minute walk to central station - from which you can walk or tram anywhere. The hotel has a free shuttle that you can reserve space on. It leaves every half hour during the day. We used it many times - they did not mind at all. I approve - this hotel is awesome.
