“Hotel needs a complete remodeling”

It was very expensive for the very small room we originally were given. There was a convention in the city that caused the rates to go higher. We were forced to upgrade to a bigger room. [ Upgrade was not given as we paid extra] The room was bigger but the paint and wallpaper were peeling off. Room was "tired" The cab driver who took us back to the airport quickly pointed out that the tourists he drives make the same complaint. I can't believe they do so well when the city is not swarming with conventions.For that reason alone it was surprising the upgrade was not free of charge. Great location but a "classic" room is crazy small. Little charm to compensate as the rooms are in major need of repair. WIFI was annoying. Great concierge though.
Owner Response of Amsterdam American Hotel - Hampshire Eden
Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and your review posting. The less contemporary rooms are scheduled for renovation. Of course we shall look into it that, until then, each room is "in shape". A few rooms of the 112-year old hotel are indeed small. If size is important, an upgrade can be arranged upon availibility. A guaranteed upgrade indeed comes at a limited cost. A common practice all over the world and certainly also in New York. Unfortunately the header of your review does not reflect the actual status of the hotel. The remodelling need is for a certain portion of our hotel inventory. Hopefully you will revisit to witness the refurbishments. With best regards,

“Great location, service, and restaurant”

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of an Insight Tour. This is a great location and the bus from the airport stops right across the street. It is close to dining, shopping, and museums. Our large room overlooked the canal. The breakfast was fabulous. The staff were very helpful when we arrived ahead of our tour group and our room was not ready. They kept our bags and suggested some places we could visit while we waited.

“Great Dining Room”

Stylish and historic hotel. We had a largish room, it was very clean apart from one mark on the carpet which had been unsuccessfully cleaned. Small bathroom with underpowered shower over. But again very clean with large towels. It would have been nice to get a room overlooking the canal rather than an inner roof but at least it was very quiet. The bed was huge and incredibly comfortable. Full marks for that. Without doubt, the glory of this hotel is the wonderful Art Deco dining room. At least one breakfast there is a must. We could sit where we wanted and the buffet covered most requirements. Great location, easy to get on the tram from the train station, walking distance to Vondelpark , Rijksmuseum , Van Gogh museum and Blue Boat canal ride pick up point. We would certainly stay there again although staff could be friendlier.

Great hotel. A bit pricey but that's to be expected. I really liked my room, the bath was great. The area was fantastic, everything in walking distance. Especially the vondelpark which is a must see. Would definitely stay here again.
