Expensive but the best !

I used to live next door and I can tell you that Prinsengracht canal is the most beautiful and romantic of all the main canals. The hotel is quiet and has the best service.

All the carnivals and holidays happen in this canal, so if you are not into lots of people, check the calendar before you book.

However if you happen to be booked in September you might be lucky to enjoy the Prinsengracht concert that is done by the hotel and you will find yourself in a unique afternoon in the middle of the cream of the cream of Netherlands.
Dinning room.... Love this paintin…

Great Service, Friendly Staff, Great Location Apr 02, 2010
I stayed here in July of 2002. This review is based on the experience I had then. I really enjoyed staying at the Hotel Pulitzer in Amsterdam. The location was amazing. I felt I was withing walking distance to everything that a typical traveler in Amsterdam would want to see. I believe part of the high cost of this hotel has a great deal due to the location. The service was excellent. The staff was very helpful with assisting me in where to sight-see, giving directions, etc. I would recommend staying here if you want to travel in a Luxury type of way. If you like meeting fellow travelers this may not be the place for you; you may be better off in a Bed & Breakfast type of setting. I was 23 at the time and it felt a little 'adult/mature' for me. However, now as I near 30 years old, if I stayed there again, I would probably fit right in age-wise.

Best accommodations in Amsterdam Apr 28, 2010
I've been to Amsterdam three times, stayed here twice. Wouldn't stay anywhere else again! Hotel Pulitzer by Luxury Collection Hotels really stands on top of the luxury segment in Amsterdam (and in The Hague as well). This hotel has the perfect location, virtually walking distance to everything. And knowing the history of the accommodations makes it that much more interesting: it's comprised of 25 old canal houses that date back almost 400 years! As always with Starwood hotels, Hotel Pulitzer has amazing staff that will meet all of your needs.
Hotel Pulitzer, winter

best hotel ever Nov 06, 2010
best hotel ever, made up of several canal houses joined. Excellent location, professional and friendly staff, the most comfortavle beds i have ever had. If you book thru the price is not much higher than the average 3 star hotel, so it is well worth investing in the luxury provided. if you are not on a shoestring budget, and you want to pamper yourself in Amsterdam...THIS is THE PLACE:)

Nice hotel with a good location Mar 19, 2009
I stayed at Hotel Pulitzer in Amsterdam from March 16th to March 18th on a work trip to the city. I took it as they could offer a good deal on 2 night stay and as it was a Starwood hotel and I’m in the Starwood Preferred Guest program. I had to pay 207€ per night for the room.

First of all: you got to love the internet. Yes, I did book the hotel through the internet (on the Starwood page) and I also used to check which was the nearest tram station and which line would service that station. So when I arrived at Schiphol airport I took a train into downtown (centralstation) and from there I jumped on the right tram line and jumped of at the right station…it is Westermarkt by the way.

When I arrived, the check in was fast and I got room 331. The guy that checked me in was very helpful and pulled out a map to show us where we were located and I also asked if he could recommend a restaurant near by and he booked a table for me at Moeders (Mothers) – but that is a different story.

Room 331 is located on the 2nd floor and the first impression when walking in was quite good. At first glance it was a room with light wooden floors, light walls, golden curtains and big beams in the ceiling. It is also located right next to a canal so the surroundings are quite picturesque - not that I got to experience much of that as I got windows facing a courtyard.

When I first came in I had a lot of problems figuring out how to turn on the light. But after fiddling around with the light switches I finally figured it out. The room was dominated by a huge bed which turned out to be very comfortable – it even had a proper duvet and some nice pillows.

Apart from that there was a nice flat screen TV on top of a mini bar. But as always in hotels the prices are ridiculous – 4 € for a Coke, 6.5 € for a Heineken are just a couple of examples. There was also a wardrobe with some hangers, a mini safe, a holder for a suitcase and of course a work desk with a couple of chairs. I did try to activate the air-con by the way as I like to have it cool when I sleep but that did not seem to work. Maybe it is only in operation during the summertime. This made the nights a bit warm for me as the duvet was quite thick. I could have opened a window of course but note that there is a church nearby where the bell tolls like every half hour even throughout the night so if you a sensitive to sounds, be aware.

The bathroom seemed pretty small to start with but it was not bad at all. It was tiled in various colors, there were heating in the floor, the towels were big and fluffy and the shower curtain option was not too bad (but I still don’t like the shower curtain option to start with). There were not that many amenities – only the usual shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and lotion. When it comes to the bathtub/shower…I wonder how many really take a bath when they stay for a couple of nights at a hotel. I seldom use the bathtub option and in this hotel I would much rather have a better shower option than the bathtub but that’s just me I guess.

I only stayed at Hotel Pulitzer 2 days so it is hard to give them a proper verdict after such a short time. It seems to be a nice modern hotel in an “old shell” as it is located in an old refurbished Amsterdam house located right on the edge of a canal. But being here on business I would have loved to have stayed connected by having access to the internet. But access to the net was not complimentary and came at the price of 19€ for 24 hours or 35€ for 48 hours. That is just ridiculous if you ask me.

Another thing that is insane is the breakfast prices. A full breakfast cost 29€!!! I’m sorry that I sound stingy but there is only so much a person can eat for breakfast and I doubt that anyone can eat for 29€. Another thing that surprised me was the price. I think I paid about 200€ per night for the hotel room but that was without breakfast: I think with breakfast it would be about 270€. So it is actually cheaper to book the room and then buy the breakfast separately – how silly is that? On day two when I came to breakfast the guy at the reception was quite laid back – so he told me to just grab something to eat and then tell him on the way out what I had eaten to determine the price. So after 10 minutes I walked up to him and told him that I had a banana and some cereal and a glass of juice (which is my regular breakfast) and he was like “Is that all? Get out of here”. So I didn’t have to pay anything. Again I wonder how many people actually eat a lot at breakfast at hotels like this. A business travel can’t stuff himself/herself full of food every morning when traveling.

But all is all – I would not mind staying here again. The location of the hotel is not bad as you can walk to Dam within 10 minutes, the bed was huge and comfortable and the room was modern and looked great. The staff was very helpful and approached me very fast when I was looking for help. So all the staff ranging from people in the restaurant, the reception staff and porters were all excellent.

To round of I would just like to recommend Amsterdam. I went there on vacation a few years back and I enjoyed it. But I had almost forgotten how charming this city is – after this trip I would like to return once again on vacation to re-discover it. So if you have a chance to go here, don’t hesitate

Best Location in Amsterdam Jul 10, 2008
The Hotel Pulitzer Amsterdam really does go above and beyond. There are not as many amenities as you get at others hotels of this stature but it makes up for it with really great guest rooms and fantastic service. We were in suite 341 overlooking the canal on the front side of the hotel and it was beautiful. Two sets of french doors open to a rail, alcove sitting area with exposed brick walls and a small but very nice marble bath. This hotel is like a maze though. Often to get to most rooms you'll walk a way's down odd shaped hallways, up and down several steps and sometimes even through outdoor passageways. The hotel manager told me that the hotel is comprised of twenty-nine historic townhouses that run long two of the cities canals. It really was a delight, and the restaurant excelled greatly. Highly recommend if you're traveling to Amsterdam and want a great place to stay.
