          Typical Swissotel quality and service. A cut above most upscale hotel experiences. This is our third stay after Dresden and Sydney, all three strategically located near the main sites, happenings and transportation of the city, while blending into the local architecture, but with modern rooms and amenities plus a superior breakfast buffet.

          The location and entrance give you the idea that you would enter a rundown hotel, maybe this will change soon as they were busy renovating the hallways. But once we opened the door of our (upgraded) suite (407) the picture changed. Worth a visit, very very comfortable.

          Great Location, Great Hotel


          We stayed at the Hotel between 9-12th January 2004, it is a comfortable, clean hotel, and in good condition. Staff were always knowledgeable and twice when we required service, they were always prompt to help.

          We had a standard room, although it was a bit small in size, the location in the heart of Amsterdam, and the upkeeping made up for it.

          The maid would always tidy our room and replace complimentary tolietries everyday, even though we They had payable TV, internet access if you have laptop, minibar and complimentary coffee and tea, we also had bathrobes and plenty of guides in the room. left our room really late in the afternoon! Excellent power shower.

          I loved this hotel and I would definitely book here again.

          Good Value, Fantastic location


          Good winter value, clean hotel, spacious modern room, with a very comfortable bed. Fabulously located right in Dam Square. Couldn't beat it.

          Swissotel amsterdam


          We stayed in a standard room which overlooked the air-conditioning system at the rear of the building which meant that the room was permanently dark - however the noise of the air-conditioning system was kept out by the efficient double glazing. The room was small but well laid out with twin beds, a desk and a table and chairs. The bathroom was on the small side but the shower was more than powerful and there was always sufficient hot water - there were 2 phones altogether in the bedroom and even one in the bathroom. The staff were all extremely helpful especially room service and housekeeping who kept us well supplied with teabags and coffee as there is no coffee machine in the standard rooms. The hotel is within easy reach of all the usual tourist sights and definitely lives up to its reputation. We booked the room through an internet offer and paid 180 for two nights not including breakfast which is the price we have previously paid for some 3 star hotels! We will stay again next time we are in Amsterdam.

          Swissotel- worth returning


          Swissotel Amsterdam is a wonderful property.Walking distance from Central Station. 800 metersdown Damrak. Beautiful room with mixed wood decor-beamed ceilings- modern TV-internet access-coffee and expresso machine in room. ProfessionalStaff and location can not be beat.Will stay there again.Bob K.

          Best All Around


          Stayed here on my 10th and 11th trip to Amsterdam and probably will never stay anywhere else. The staff was great, the room was perfect. 4 telephones including a handheld with 2 different lines, they even give your room a direct phone number for people to call you, a walkin shower and a separate tub with shower. Twice a day maid service, best location in the city, great security, clean marble bathroom, expresso machine in the room, and lots more. I've stayed at nearly every 5 star hotel in Amsterdam and I can't believe this is not 5 star, as it is definitely better than most of the 5 stars.

          Swissotel great pick


          Just spent three nights at the Swissotel and was very pleased. Had a great room that overlooked Dam square. A little shabby but very clean and good sized. Pillows and bed was comfortable and staff amiable.

          Location is great. Near many sights and trolley out front if you need it. Take a tram from Central station if you have taken the train from the airport.

          Enjoyed the modern, clean room


          This hotel is in a convenient location for the tram (right outside the door), Centraal Station (no more than a 10 minute walk) and several places to change travelers checks. The room was small but very clean, well furnished with modern amenities, and quiet. Overall, it is a nice hotel, but very close to the red light district. I booked a superior room and paid extra for it, but I overheard the desk clerk giving someone a "free upgrade" to a superior room. I suspect I paid extra for what is given to others for free, which is my only reason for not giving the hotel an Excellent rating.

          Definately Reccommended


          We stayed for 17 days and everything was perfect. We got a free upgrade tp superior and the room was small, but spacious enough and extremely clean.. there was turn down service every night and the bathroom far exceeded our expectations.

          The staff were very friendly and polite, and the location was excellent. It is a smaller hotel, and the only downside was that we were on the non-smoking floor.

          On the upside, this is the nicest hotel I have stayed in in Europe and the room was immaculate and the bed and pillows were clean and soft. Oh and the bathroom is all marble and has a full size bath.

          All in all I would definately recomend this hotel.

          Noisy area, good location


          Nice hotel in busy area. We had a room facing the street and had too much noise 50% of the nights we stayed. The room was big and the staff (especially Luigi) was fabulous. If you plan to stay here do not have a car. 32 euros a night just to park about a block away! You are better using the train from the airport and walk the block as you will have to do it anyway. All things considered a nice place.

          A luxurious stay


          This is a superb hotel with excellent facilities and a very central location. The rooms are fabulous and the staff are very friendly.

They would put the bodies on top of each other in one grave. Moving on, while we were in the church, an art exhibit was happening. It was projecting images of people in various places talking in random sentences/words. It was freaky weird, even for me. Martha and I were laughing.
