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

"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

"Great Hotel - Leidseplein area"
I've stayed at the American Hotel for the past (9) nine years. The staff is very friendly, always remembering our party and calling us by name. Rooms are nice and clean. I like to stay on the side facing front with a balcony facing the fountain.Genuine Expedia 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.

"Great location and historic building"
Right In the heart of Leidseplein Area, close to Rjiksmuseum, Van Gogh's museum, Vondelpark areas. My preferred hotel of choice - stayed here 9 out of 13 times in the DAM.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Over 100 years old and looks it! Carpeting and wall paper made you feel dirty. Carpet was ripped, frayed and stained. I would pay more to stay somewhere I felt more comfortableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"location, location, but not much else"
Great location, historic art deco facade and public spaces. The hotel has seen much better days. The Wi-Fi was an on and off thing. The staff was mostly pleasant but often gave incorrect answers to our questions. The breakfast was poor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel - very clean with a friendly staff"
Location was central to visiting museums and navigating within the city. Our room was beautiful, clean, and we got a great nights sleep! The hotel staff was friendly and took care of our luggage while we were sightseeing.Genuine Expedia guest review
We arrived at 7AM and were jet lagged. We knew check in was at 3PM. Zakir at the front desk realized we were extremely tired, so, he gave us the use of another room for us to be able to get some rest, at no extra charge, until our room was ready. Now, that's what I call service and taking care of your guests!Genuine Expedia guest review
Close to the museums, also our canal tour boat, Anne Frank House, and Rembrandt House. Room small but very well-appointed. Walked it all.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great place to stay"
There is road construction in front of the hotel right now, but even with that the location is excellent. Easy to walk to the museums, shops, and restaurants. Had a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We initially had some problems. We had an early flight so arrived before our room was ready. Luckily, we had our hotels.com paperwork because they only had the room registered for one occupant. We were told that a lovely, canal view room with king sized bed would be ready in a couple of hours but when we returned we were put in a small, cramped room […] overlooking the street. I objected on the grounds of our earlier conversation with the hotel staff and after a few grunts and groans we were placed in the original room we were promised. Some of the staff were helpful and others were not. When it came time to leave, we had been told a TAXI had been reserved for us at 6:45 A.M., instead we were placed in a van which cost 49 euros instead of the cheaper taxi rate. We were in no position to argue so we took the van. Additionally, the service in the adjoining American Cafe was awful. Everyone was rude, and unfriendly. Not so, to the local customers.

"Excellent location, easy access to everything"
We took the bus from Schipol airport to the Hotel, and the bus station was right at the front of the Hotel. We had easy access to the Tram station, walking distance to the grocery store (Albert Heijn), numerous restaurants, canal cruise! We could easily take a break in the afternoon, rest up, and go in the other direction of town in the evening. We […] visited almost everything including Flower Market, Albert Cuyp Market, Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum, Royal Palace museum, Van Loon Museum, Anne Frank House. The office for museum pass was right next door, and they provided us with all the information we needed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Historical Hotel loosing its charm"
I had high hope of our stay when I booked. American Hotel is historical hotel with 4- star rating and centrally located - near a casino, two major lines of trams, museums, and hundreds of restaurants and shops. It did not meet my expectation, far from it. 1. The hotel was not well maintained. I can see peeled-off wall papers, chips on the wall, and […] dirty carpets. 2. Rooms were noisy due to thin walls. 3. The room somewhat smelly, and there were stains on our pillow cases. 4. The free internet was very spotty and the free computers were not all working. Good things to say: 1. Accommodating counter staff, 2. Great restaurant on-site (American Cafe), 3. Gorgeous lobby and fountains. 4. Location, location, location. Overall, I can only give this hotel 2-stars. It was overrated. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Response by Amsterdam American Hotel - Hampshire Eden Dear Guest, thank you for your visit and your review. We are pleased to hear that your expecations were met. Of course it is our goal to exceed them upon your next visit. Best regards,
I was disappointed with the room I first got on the 6th floor. The bed had very visible stains and a cardboard sticking out. I have stayed in this hotel before and am well aware of their renovated rooms which they seemed to have an issue in allocating me one, even after booking 4 rooms for 5 nights. Most of the staff were great other than 1 reception […] lady who had an attitude communicating to me. The location of the hotel is great and one can take a bus to and from the airport right outside for only 4 Euros one way. I would stay here again and would recommend it.

Response by Amsterdam American Hotel - Hampshire Eden Dear Guest, thank you for your stay and your review. The less contemporary rooms are also scheduled for renovation. We shall carefully monitor our staff's attitude. With best regards,
This hotel is in a great location! The only negatives were the fact that the rooms were very dark and poorly lit and the wifi was very slow. The lamps that were in the room were very dim.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a fabulous location to visit all the major museums. Walking distance to all of them and very enjoyable surroundings. Full of canal-side restaurants and leisurely walks are extremely interesting. The hotel rooms are a little small, but that is par for the course in Europe. The beds are a little soft, but they do offer bed boards if you want […] them. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lovely hotel; perfect location"
We loved our stay here. We got the canal views we requested; the friendly, helpful staff even gave us a complimentary bottle of Champagne to celebrate our anniversary! They guided us to great bike rentals, the dirt-cheap bus right up to the street to Schipol Airport, and more. You can't beat the Leidesplein for a central location. The rooms were spotless, […] the internet speedy, the towels huge and soft. Highly recommended! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Disorganized Front desk staff-they gave priority to locals and kept us waiting for service and information. Perhaps it was that they did not organize cues for guests waiting for service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Amsterdam Great Location Hotel"
Hotel location was excellent, close to main museums, shops and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, we got our room before check in time. Only complaint is that the air conditioning shuts off at midnight and the only bed cover was a duvet covered very heavy comforter, not a sheet, making it hot and uncomfortable. Breakfast was […] not included and was very expensive for a simple, continental breakfast. Overall, we would recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Never go there !!!!!!!!"
I'm visiting Amsterdam every 10 days, this time I came with my wife and we chose a hotel in the shopping area. But this place was a big mistake. This is not a hotel, this is a hostel, we ordered a junior suite; but what you see in their pictures has nothing to do with reality. The room was dark, stinky, no promised balcony. We went to the reception […] and upgraded the room for 50€ extra. Finally we got the "best" suite. And again nothing lived up to the expectation: broken taps, darkness,stinky smell. Definitely there are much better hotels in Amsterdam. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect room, had A/C which is rare in Europe but it was unseasonably warm during our stay. Large bed, balcony, nice restaurant/bar out in front, great neighborhoodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel close to museums."
Nice looking hotel, but they are remodeling parts of the hotel, which prevented any views. In the canal area and easy access to trams.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was large and comfortable by Amsterdam standards. The airconditioning worked flawlessly. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. Bed was very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location -- centrally located in Amsterdam"
I stayed for 3 nights -- the staff was very friendly and helpful. Like most of Europe, the single room was small which was just fine - the room was very clean, comfortable; and best of all, had a lovely patio that overlooked the fountain...a great place to spend a little time each evening.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very enjoyable stay at this hotel. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room had construction workers by the window all day long, no privacy! Had to close the drapes, very uncomfortable! After waiting at the lobby for 40 minutes still got a bad room!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel in a good neighborhood"
I had a very pleasant stay at the American Amsterdam hotel in the summer of 2013. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were helpful. The hotel is located in a nice neighborhood with several restaurants and and H&M store. There is also a place to embark on a canal tour a few feet away from the hotel entrance. To get to the hotel from […] Central Station, you can take a taxi for about 13euro or a tram for less than 3euro. The only downside for me was that my plane arrived to Amsterdam at 6am, but hotel check-in is not until 3pm. However the staff were very nice as asked housekeeping to prepare my room as soon as the other guests checked out, so I was able to check in my 1pm. I definitely recommend the American Amsterdam hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
