The famous Café and Bar Americain

The famous Café and Bar Americain

Café Americain
A phenomenon in Amsterdam and far beyond. Café Americain is a well known meeting place for writers, artists, performers and locals. In the beautiful art deco interior, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. In fine weather, the spacious terrace is a beautifully sheltered spot.
Every Saturday, you can enjoy Afternoon Tea with sandwiches, scones, bonbons, biscuits and a pot of special tea. Every Sunday, there is a Jazz Brunch with live music, good food and a relaxed lazy Sunday feel.

Bar Americain
No hotel bar in Amsterdam has welcomed such an eclectic mix of international stars as Bar Americain. Many famous guests have ordered a Lemon Jack or Sunset Amore here. Because cocktails are a house speciality. Not surprisingly, the bar is a hot spot for cocktail loving Amsterdam. Shaken or stirred, it's your call.

“Great Location - Nice Amenities”

We stayed here at the beginning of our trip to The Netherlands and also at the end of our trip. Great location - near museums and lots of dining choices. Room size was big by European standards. Bathroom was a nice size too. Bath towels were big and thick. Nice touch. Electric teapot with lots of coffee / cocoa and tea choices. Business center was great for checking news back home and for printing out boarding passes. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would strongly recommend this property. Transportation to the airport via Bus 197 was right across the street. We arrived hours before the published check in time but the staff was accommodating and got us into our room a couple of hours early. Very pleased with our accommodations.

“Excellent location in need of renovation”

The location is excellent! The Amsterdam American Hotel is very run down, carpeting, upholstery, curtains in the junior suite are dirty and worn. The bathrooms are extremely dated and need renovation. The female staff can be very rude for no reason. The internet is just awful, like internet from the 90s.

“Spacious Rooms in a good quiet location”

This was our first time staying in a regular hotel in Amsterdam, previously we stayed in B & B's. The reception staff, with one exception were very professional and friendly. our check-in was not handled well and despite telling us that our room was ready for occupying after it had been inspected, the length of time taken to inspect the room was inordinately long. The young lady at reception made no effort to follow up this procedure and we just waited. This plus the fact that we had to ask twice for additional towels was the only problem that we had with the reception. The room we had facing the canal was spacious and the bed large and extremely comfortable. The decor is of another era but definitely in keeping with the tradition of the hotel. The breakfast was a top range buffet in a glorious art deco environment. We also had dinner in the same restaurant where the food was good but the service could have been better considering the fact that the restaurant was far from crowded. To avoid excessive noise from the outside crowds I would suggest requesting a room facing the canal. The advice and service from the Concierge was outstanding. Recommended as an ideal location in order to easily get to anywhere you want to see.

“Disappointing”

Except for the restaurant, whose decoration is incredible, and the bar, the hotel is disappointing. The room was very common and the bathroom exiguous. If you want to enjoy the restaurant, come for a breakfast or just a coffee. Hopefully it is very well situated, next to the museums and the city centre.
