"Excellent location for canal tours and museums"
Excellent location to explore Amsterdam from this art deco landmark! You can catch a canal tour right at the front door and all museums are at a walking distance. Room was spacious, sound proof and very clean and comfortable with a good bath room as well as air conditioning. Location is very convenient to many restaurants around Leidseplein. Only minus […] was that breakfast was not included in the price. Will definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The Hotel is a beautiful property,staff is eager to help and looks for ways to be helpful.I would recommend this hotel to anyone.Location is most convenient,and makes the city easy to navigate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I love this hotel"
I had a great room with a wonderful king size bed overlooking the canal and a small park. The Leidseplein is just down the street. Food, entertainment and tram stop. The hotel's restaurant is an amazing example of architecture from the early 20th century. It's a great place at a decent price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful place to stay in Amsterdam"
Just wonderful! Lovely spacious double room, good view, close to museums. Front desk unbelievably helpful, from ice for partner's injured knee each night, to help with consulate and Amex when my purse was stolen. Free services in Business Center were unusual. Cannot say enough nice things about hotel itself, staff, and location. Would definitely return. […] Was there for a large conference and few attendees had nice things to say about their hotels - felt very lucky to have found this hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not Four Star but Adequate"
Hotel was tired and worn, not dirty but not spotless either, and it was short on the usual amenities. It was well located and adequate, but it does not deserve a four star rating. Staff was friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very comfortable, room was clean, bed was comfy and its in a great neighborhood. Plenty of variety on restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. Its a must stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful stay at the American. The location was excellent for the activities and sights we wanted to visit. The staff is very helpful. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms were clean. We stayed in a Junior Suite which had ample room but the bathroom was extremely small. We also had a deluxe king which had an enormous bathroom. (#342) […] and a small balcony. The amenities in these rooms varied drastically. The mini bar was packed but we managed to squeeze in a quart of milk. But the chambermaid made a implied statement by removing it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nicely located historic hotel"
The hotel is located in the very convenient location, close to many restaurants and shops. In general, Amsterdam is a very walkable city. Most of places are within walking distance, or just a short tram ride away. This hotel is a historic building, but it is well maintained. You can tell it went through many renovations, and some oversights like steps […] in the hallway can be an issue if you require wheelchair to get around. Only complaint I have is it is close to busy streets, so we heard loud groups outside sometimes. It was not overbearing, but you may feel annoyed if you are a light sleeper.

"Enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam"
We stayed for 4 nights, travelling with another couple after our cruise ship docked in Amsterdam. Location of restaurant could not be better - we were able to walk to most attractions with ease. Many good restaurants nearby. Rooms were clean and comfortable although we would have liked to have better reading light. Bathroom is modern and stocked with […] necessary toiletries and large fluffy towels. I would have liked to have a refrigerator rather than the minibar. We only ate breakfast at the hotel one morning. Buffet style, the breakfast was varied and ample although a bit pricey at 19 Euros. Hotel staff was extremely kind and helpful. We would recommend this hotel without hesitation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very nice staff"
I like this hotel. The staff is amazing! The location is very good. The rooms are in need of renovation, in particular the TV picture quality is poor. The WiFi is also very slow. The mini bar is ridiculously expensive. They should replace with a mini-refrigerator. This was my fourth or fifth visit, and I would go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easter at the Amsterdam American Hotel"
Our family took three rooms for five nights surrounding Easter. Everything was fine with the accomodations except our request for two rollaway beds made when the reservation was made could not be accomodated. The hotel is nicely situated especially if you want to be close to a large number of restaurants in the area. If you like walking, many museums […] and street markets are close by and you can get a canal boat tour just accross the road from the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice convenent location to museums and restaurants"

"Excellent location a lot of character"
This is one of the best hotels in Amsterdam. It is located in Leidseplein close to entertainment, nightlife, and transportation. Friendly hotel staff by northern European standards. Bar Americain is a must visit landmark with a lot of history and great beverages. Rooms are comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location and stay"
We were very pleased with our stay at thus hotel. The location is superb, right near Leidseplein without being on it (our room overlooked the canal and was not noisy). Hotel is a well-updated version of a long-standing hotel and has the benefit of the historic appearance and ambiance. Our double room was well appointed (flat screen TV, plenty of closet […] and dresser space, nice bathroom, side chairs and table), with the only quibble being that the minibar should have been just a small fridge instead. Staff was perfectly friendly and capable. We would readily return again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
excellent location for museums and touringGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall, great for the price. Small, European style room...but don't be afraid. Clean, comfortable, and well kept. Be wary...the staff will try to say "have the breakfast" while making you think it's free. Nope. 21 euro...we had the charge reversed for the first, and only, morning we fell prey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very nice! the american bar and staff was amazing - the highlight of my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Duty Manager did double duty"
I've stayed at this hotel a number of times. There was a problem with the reservation which resulted in me being locked out of the room. The Duty Manager swiftly jumped into action and sorted out the problem with amazing speed. The error was on the hotel's side, and they were embarrassingly apologetic. They offered to upgrade my room and give me a free […] breakfast for the duration of my stay, all of which I wouldn't accept. When I came back to my room that evening they had left wine, cheese, and fruit. The Duty Manager Niels is such a professional. I've already booked my next visit, and this hotel is now my home away from home whilst in Amsterdam. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location location location"
Fantastically located hotel. Room feels very dated and mattress feels worn, but despite this the staff are super friendly and the good price makes up for a lot. The gym badly needs updating and better air flow, as it smells bad. This hotel has a lot more potential!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Needs improvement of service"
I have stayed at this property over the last 25 years as it has changed management over the years. The current team is one disaster after another. For a four star hotel this is pathetic. The windows leaked cold air, there were no extra blankets - the management did provide an electric heater and blankets when advised about the situation. There were […] no shampoo, conditioner, shower cap in the bathroom. There was construction noise during the day. Despite paying for a deluxe room at almost 200 euros a night the check in folks refused to give us a renovated room! The bar service was appalling - it took over 30 minutes to get served and when the bill came they had charged for the wrong order. Instead of a simple acknowledgement of an error they tried to blame the wrong order on me. The cafe is wonderful but again the service was appalling - one morning they claimed to have even run out of croissants! They claimed to have corrected a mischarge but when I was ready to check out the error was still there! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"American Hotel - Amsterdam"
This hotel was a big disappointment. The rooms feel old and have a strange smell to them. The staff was very unhelpful during the 4 days that I was there. The room I had was very noisy. The heating system had a constant knocking sound, and the street noise came into the room clearly since the windows were old. I would not stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Reasonable, but not fantastic"
I was in Amsterdam on a business trip and was very happy with the location. It's close to the museums so if you have a chance to look around even if you're on a business trip it's very very convenient. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby and it was right next to the tram stop, an easy ride to Central Station. The room was clean but a little […] on the shabby side. The carpet looked worn. It was very dark, no overhead lights and I did not care for the pillows. The room was small. When I opened the bathroom door there was about an inch of clearance between the bed and the door. On the plus side the bathroom was sparkling clean and the towels were nice. For the price and location it's a good value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"I love this hotel"
I have stayed here twice and I love it. It's a historical and beautiful building. It's in a great location, close to the shopping area and the canals on one side, and a big park on the other side. The staff is very nice. The room is small, but in my experience that is very normal in Amsterdam. It was clean, and nothing to complain about. One thing that […] was pretty funny was that I found a bag of weed next to the dresser, by the bed. I guess the guest before me dropped it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The Amsterdam American Hotel"
We loved the hotel, the city, and the attached restaurant. The room was lovely, comfortable and CLEAN. The Hotel staff went out of their way to meet our needs. What a beautiful accommodation!Genuine Expedia guest review
Got to hotel about 11 & check in time was 3. Our room wasn't ready, but the staff let us drop our bags while we had lunch & a walk around town. Staff was friendly, provided a map and offered several suggestions of what we should see. Location was great. Right out the doors was the Lovers canal tour, the bus stop & tram stop. Great shopping, parks […] & museum area near by. Hotel condition- looks like they were in the process of repairing or replacing carpets & had tape over seams & on stairs. But beautiful lobby. Rooms were nice. Larger than most European rooms I've been in. Clean, comfy. For the value, I felt I slightly overpaid, but not by much. I would stay here again if the price was right. I'm sure there are other hotels just as nice or better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beware of room bait-and-switch!"
My low rating for this hotel reflects one simple fact: I booked a room for two adults, with a queen size bed (or two twin beds) and, instead, I got a full sized bed in a tiny room that couldn't have fit the bed(s) I booked without tearing out walls. I booked a room for two adults *specifically* to avoid a tiny room and miniscule bed. The clerk clearly […] knew that, because they asked if it was just me ... I assumed the question related to breakfast head count. I answered honestly: one. But as I learned later, they used the information to downgrade me without telling me. NOT COOL!!!!!!!! Total bait-and-switch. Too bad, also, because the hotel's location was *primo* and the staff was very friendly. But the wrong class of room is the wrong class of room... and that's just wrong.
