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 Hotel”

We had a huge room with a terrace overlooking a canal. The canal cruise stop is opposite the hotel entrance. The restaurant is a magnificent Art Nouveau design. Service is impeccable and the food delicious. All in all a terrific stay.

“Nice stay in a great location”

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. Our room was huge, with a window overlooking Leidseplein. The shower was great, bed was comfy, and the wifi was fast. The location is also great! There are tons of bars and restaurants close by and it’s also extremely close to the Rijksmuseum & Van Gogh museum. Both the tram and the bus stop are right out front of the hotel.

“A Very Comfortable Stay”

Stayed here about 5 times previously and really like the hotel. Its a little tired in places however the rooms are very clean and comfortable. This time I went with my family and had 2 Junior suites. One was nicer then the other as it had white walls the other was black and a bit dark.The beds are great and I always sleep well. Lovely bar area and the staff are all great and the location of the hotel is very central.. Happy to continue staying here

“Great location, great staff, good value”

Had a 4night city break. This hotel is well placed. The rooms are a little small, the furniture a little large. The staff are helpful. The wifi is excellent, though the instructions were wrong - just ask reception for the password. Didn't use the cafe, too expensive and you're surrounded by other options. Really enjoyed my stay and would use this hotel again.

Owner Response of Amsterdam American Hotel - Hampshire Eden
Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and your review posting. Indeed some of the 175 rooms in the 112-year old hotel are small in size. Luckily many of them have a balcony. Please state your preference with your next reservation and the befiiting room type will be reserved against a supplement. With best regards,
