Crowne Plaza Hotel Amsterdam City Centre Reviews
Good but expensive, especially the extras Mar 28, 2012
== Location ==
This hotel is located directly in the city centre, not far from the Main Station (Centraal). Lots of gift-shops, stores, restaurants and even cannabis coffee shops are around. Its also not far to the famous destricts Nieuwmarkt and so on.
== Service ==
Well we didnt find a parking garage first but you just have to stop on a little parking bay in front of the hotel and the concierge parks the car for you. Overall service was pretty good and staff was very friendly. Also many people there to assist you, you dont really have to wait at any time.
== Room ==
It was big, clean and comfortable. The bed was big with many pillows, I had a normal flatscreen and a big safe with enough space for notebook and more.
The bathroom was clean and had a bathtub.
Dont touch something from the minibar, theres a sensor that directly charges the item on your room-bill.
== Price ==
Thats the minor negative, its just very expensive. Not only the room was expensive, also everything else you want to use there. For example internet access: Its 20€ per 24 hours, cable and Wifi, no free internet here. The parking garage was at 5€ per HOUR...crazy max. 40€ per day - thats more expensive than parking at Frankfurt Airport. Cheeky!
Ohh not to forget about the breakfast - also not included with that expensive standard room-price of 220€ PER NIGHT!!! The breakfast charged with another 25€.
== Restaurant ==
We only had breakfast and it was good, but not worth 25€. I had better breakfast in cheaper hotels before.
The lobby and bar area is very nice, you can sit down, watch TV and have a beer.
Overall I would recommend this hotel - if you can effort it. To me it would have been too expensive, if I would have to pay it myself.

Crowne Plaza in Amsterdam Dec 27, 2008
Love it! The front desk personnel were very polite and QUICK. This is definitely a plus because I was tired and I wanted check-in to be a breeze. Location... AWESOME!!! The hotel is only about a block away from Centraal Station. As for affordability, I gave it an average just because it will depend how you make your reservations. I highly suggest www.priceline.com because it gave me a great rate. According to my travel guide, this hotel ranks as one of the highest (about 250 euros a night). However, this is NOT what I paid. My room cost me about 150 USD a night, which is clearly much lower once you convert to euros. This hotel is HIGHLY recommended!!!!
