Amstel Amsterdam Review

The Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam is a fine example of a 5-star hotel. The Amstel Hotel is just a short walk to explore Amsterdam's greatest attractions.

The building itself is grand, with an impressive façade, and equally impressive lobby. The theme running through the hotel is one of tradition; with high ceilings, columns, patterned wallpaper, and extremely high quality fixtures and fittings. It’s an impressive place that manages to be traditional without being pretentious or elitist. The whole building speaks of quality.

We have visited the Amstel Hotel a few times over the years, and were very much looking forward to returning. We were greeted at the entrance and our luggage taken by a member of staff. Our car was parked in the secure underground car park by a valet and the Concierge opened the door. This is the level of service we have come to love from the Amstel Hotel.

“The whole building speaks of quality.”

We had an Executive Suite overlooking the River Amstel, which boasts a lovely view from the large windows. The suite was a good size, and decorated in keeping with the traditional feel of the rest of the hotel. The bed was large and very comfortable, and we slept very well.

Everything in the suite was beautiful, from the polished, real wood furniture, the soft linens and heavy curtains, to the wallpaper. The bedroom also featured a desk, LCD TV, DVD player and a minibar stocked with quart bottles rather than the usual miniatures.

The bathroom was equally well-appointed, with a large bath and separate rain shower. The marble finish was clean and polished until it shone. There was a lovely robe on the back of the door and L’Occitane products for us to use.

The rest of the hotel matched the standard of what we experienced in our suite. There are a couple of bars and restaurants, a health club with indoor swimming pool, sauna, Turkish baths and Jacuzzi and gym equipment and a nice terrace to enjoy afternoon tea.

Our stay at the Amstel Hotel was, once again, a delight. We are pleased to say that it remains one of our most favourite hotels, and we always leave wishing we could stay longer.
