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 day between 14.00 and 17.00 o'clock, you can enjoy Afternoon Tea with sandwiches, scones, bonbons, biscuits and a pot of special tea. Every  first 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 and Restaurant”

The building is beautiful and in a good location right at the canal wharf. The main thing is that the staff were excellent. Particularly Carlos in the restaurant who served us several breakfasts and lunch.

“Un gran día en Amsterdam”

Good attention, located Good, the good restaurant. The only thing that I do not like me much is that my room was obscure. For the rest quite very well. From the hotel you can walk near the channels or up to the center. All the persons who work in the hotel very nice, help you in any doubt to have and orientate you as tourist. I cannot say any more because I should lodge only one night and it was what I saw.

“Hotel is good Bar personel is exeptional”

The hotel is the same for the last 10 years I have been staying there. Surprisingly enough so are the people running the bar, with some small changes. We have to veterans like Rogier, Michel and Noury. They are absolutely amazing, they remember you after a year, welcome you with a huge and are always friendly and making the time spend in the bas well worth it. There is younger guy, relatively new but he picked up on the kind of hospitality the veterans provide. There is now a new lady in the bar, Sarah, she replaced a not so fitting young girl from Poland. Sarah is awesome, met her for the first time this trip and she is as good as the 3 musketiers that work there so long. It was sad that Cor recently retiered but with Sarah they brought in another winner!! I will be back in November again.

“The favorite hotel in Amsterdam”

We tried few hotels each time we visited Amsterdam and this was the best. That's why we are keep coming back...Ask for a canal view, it's fantastic! The only thing I would change is the size of the bath, which too small for 2 people.
