A bit far from things but Beautiful Hotel
I stayed here for business a few weeks ago and i have to admit it's one of the best hotels i've stayed in. The facilities were beautiful. However, I am a bit spoiled by the type of customer service you get in the US, so i wasnt so pleased with the staff. It's a bit far from everything as well, so if you're there for pleasure, i'd suggest picking something a lot cheaper. It's not like you're going to be home the whole time anyway right? ;)

Great for business travellers
i've never stayed in this hotel, but i worked here as an intern for 4 months..... i think that d service is ok. sometimes in stressful times, it can be quite slow, but i assure u that they're doing their best..... and d staff are very friendly.......
it has a great health club, which has a cool swimming pool... but u have to pay for that.... practically, u have 2 pay for almost everything... including the parking........ so i recommend this hotel only for business travellers, especially since it's quite far from d center ( u gotta take a trem or metro)
but it has great facilities for meeting and only a walking distance from the RAI (a kind of convention center)
Unique Quality: it is d highest hotel in amsterdam, so it has great view.........
With its 23 floors it used to be the highest building in Amsterdam. This excellent hotel with all luxury you desire and great service which you can expect from a Japanese hotel.
The hotel has almost 400 rooms, Health Club & swimming pool, traditional Japanese sauna & massage, extensive shopping arcade, ladies & gentlemen's hairdresser, beauty salon etc.
The rooms have besides the individual air-conditioning, fax machine, data ports on phone and fax, safe deposit box, trouser press, bathrobe, minibar and lots of other rooms facilities.
The hotel has an excellent congress venue, which is not only suitable for business but also for weddings or other large-scale events.
Unique Quality: The hotel has 4 restaurants and 2 bars. Worth mentioning is the TeppanYaki restaurant Sazanka, where dinner is prepared on a hot plate in front of your eyes (guaranteed a successful evening for the whole family). The 'haute cuisine' at the award-winning French Ciel Bleu restaurant with adjoining cocktail bar on the 23rd floor with a splendid view over Amsterdam must be mentioned as well.
