    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.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Swissotel Amsterdam

    Great Location, Great Hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    Best All Around

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

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

    ... toppings from sweet to meat. We ate and chatted and with an yummy fun start like that we were all looking forward to our walk and drive.

    The sun kept its promise and stayed in sight and the rain kept its promise and held off.

    We drove about 30 minutes to our next destination (the world famous walk). We stopped at this big parking area that had a bunch of welcome signs, a picture of a palace and a large tourist information center. Hmmm what is ...

    We arrived in Amsterdam, Kingdom of the Netherlands at 6:00 a.m. where Viking representatives arranged to transport us to our ship, the Viking Mani. The ships are named after Norse gods and Mani was the god of the moon. Arriving on board at 7:30 we enjoyed a breakfast buffet and then explored the ship while our cabins were prepared. At that hour there were still many people on board from the previous week's cruise. The ship had a lovely dining room, lounge/bar area, small outside ...

    So, in September of 2014 (just a few months after our arrival in Europe) we packed everything up again took three nights to make our way to Croatia. We drove through northern Italy, Slovenia, and finally into Split, Croatia (698 km).

    We spent one night at an apartment in Split, and the next day took a two hour ferry to our new home on Hvar Island. We stayed in this little fishing village that we loved ...

    ... how they make gouda (Smoked with ham was my favourite).

    Quick* stop for lunch. Little resto by the water. I split a club and a Dutch pancake with C. The club was a little odd in that it also had cucumber and egg on it and unlike a traditional N.A. club...it also had an extra layer of meat and cheese and egg on top of the top slice of bread. Made it very difficult to eat without a knife and fork! Dutch ...

    ... Many people live on houseboats, you can also rent them for short term stays. We just wandered the city for the rest of the day. 11 June we left Amsterdam to travel to the Hook of Holland to catch the ferry to Harwich. We did a coastal run and stopped in Schevingen at the Catch for lunch, a seafood restaurant in a marina. Looked at the beaches, drove around The Hague then boarded the Stena Line ...
