Awesome Location makes up for an ok hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 19, 2006

We stayed at The Red Lion for a weekend get away. We flew in and took the train to Centraal Station and walked to the hotel. Even though it was freezing in Amsterdam the walk was quick and the hotel was very easy to find.

The hotel is located right next to Dam Square and the tram stops directly in front of the hotel. This made for easy access to any part of the city! It also made it easy to wander around and still find your way back since it is located on Dam Square.

The Hotel itself was ok. We were upgraded to a Jr suite for an extra ?20 a night. I would not recommend this. The room we were in was a conference room with a Murphy bed and ceiling to floor windows looking out onto a brick wall and A/C unit for the building.

The staff were helpful. Not out going, but not rude. We did not eat at the Restaurant so I can't review on that.

But based on the price and the location I will definitely stay in the hotel again while in Amsterdam. The reason for the 3 rating on this review is the fact that our suite was a conference room complete with projector screen and extra office chairs. I would not recommend upgrading to a jr suite. They also charge for EVERYTHING in the room! So if you need your tea, like me, I suggest bringing some along!

Unique Quality: Great Location
Walking distance to train station
next to Dam Square
Tram stop in front of hotel

Directions: On Damrak street directly next to Dam square

When we arrived at the Hotel Amsterdam we were a bit unsure that we had made the right decision to choose this place as we had always had such a good stay at our usual place. The other downside was that it was a little further out of the centre than we are used to but the walk did us good :))

There were a couple of plus points though - this place had a lift built by the lift manufacturer *Schindler* - (Schindler's Lift - just a little Maria and Petra joke that had us giggling stupidly everytime we got in it) and internet access (our regular Amsterdam hotel had neither - but the staff were friendlier - guess you can't have everything!)

The room was nice and clean and had tv, hairdrier, all the usual hotel room stuff - including a fridge and French windows opening onto a small balcony.

Breakfast was the usual continental affair, rolls, hardboiled eggs, cheese, cold meat, yogurt, juice, cereal, tea, coffee, small fruit cakes etc etc. The woman from reception would sit there every morning - watching the guests - I don't know what she thought we were going to do... steal the fruit for our lunch or something... but I was amazed at how she managed to be so glammed up for the day in 6 inch heels and chignon hair at 8am in the morning!

And she really didn't like us... we were waiting for our taxi to take us to the station and there was no friendly goodbye... just a straight faced...*the taxi is coming!*. There was another couple also waiting and she was smiling and gushing effusively *Oh I hope you enjoyed your stay...do come back and visit us soon and have a safe trip*.

Given a choice - I would probably stay somewhere else next time.

Unique Quality: It has a lift!!!

Directions: Between the Old West and Museum District

I was so impressed with the location of this hotel. Fortunately i did not have to pay for my hotel room, do not think I would have been able to afford it! The rooms were lovely and quiet, but no view.

Unique Quality: Centrally located with lovely restaurant at bottom.

We spent 3 nights in Hotel Amsterdam.
The hotel position is excellent, it's on Damrak just a few walks from Dam Square.
Rooms were clean and service was good.
The breakfast was included.
I don't know how much does it cost per night because we booked flight+hotel together in a travel agency.

Directions: Close to Dam Square
