Acceptable standard of hotel but not 5 *

Good clean hotel but advertised as a five star which it clearly is not ! Staff were friendly and helpful Noise from the next room could have been irritating and should have been better insulated. It was mainly due to the interconnecting door not been properly sound-proofed. The bar area was fine but seemed empty most of the time and perhaps lacked a warm inviting atmosphere. Overall quite good and anyone visiting would be reasonably pleased but not exceptional It was located within striking distance of most things.

If you go to the Anne Frank museum arrive at about 8:30. There will already be others queuing but nothing compared to what happens later when the queues flow around the block!

Great but expensive internet access

Everything is great about this hotel - great location, nice service and people, clean and comfort room and bedding. however, there is no WiFi signal in the room, internet access is expensive, eg. 7 Euro/hour from room. The free internet is only available in the lobby. There is free/weak WiFi signal in the lobby and four computers with limited free access time in the lobby. It is a bit disappointing not having free WiFi for such a great hotel.

Centrally, well located hotel.

Centrally well located hotel, close enough to the Main (Central) Train Station to make it conveniently accessible and far enough away from it to make it peaceful and relaxing. Well appointed rooms with very comfortable beds and ammenities such as high speed internet and flat screen tv/monitor (with a wireless keyboard). Unfortunately, these come with a price that start affecting the otherwise great rate that Orbitz got for the room.

Before you choose to eat at a seemingly convenient restaurant near the Hotel and regardsless how far you may need to go, make sure you ask the concierge for his dining location recommendations in order to avoid disappointment (taste, presentation and/or price wise)

Spacious and decent for the location.

Hotel is one of the better ones in Amsterdam. Clean, new and nice furniture/beds/sheets. Nicely decorated. Our room was on the bottom floor facing a loud street and was too noisy. The price seemed resonable.

A weekend trip

Our stay at Renaissance was good. The staff are extremely nice and friendly. The service that they provide compensates all the little disadvantages that the hotel has. Internet 7 euro for 24 hrs - its a rip off. As well as 7.50 for an orange juice in the bar(not even fresh one!!!). Otherwise, the location, breakfast and room service were great.

Great location

We picked this location for our three night stay based on its proximity to the Jordaan. Knowing that the West Bank and the Jordaan offer the layed back experience we were looking for, the Renaissance offered a reliable hotel chain with a great location. Just a moments walk for a couple of blocks, you are at the hotel and checking in before your bags become annoying on cobble stone streets for the central station. Arriving around 12:30, our room was not available so we checked our luggage and wanted for a call from the hotel to tell us our room was available. In the meantime, we were able to see the nearby Anne Frank museum and fetch lunch. For the rest of our stay, we were able to easily visit the Dam Square area, Nine Streets, and dozens of neighborhood brown cafes and restaurants. As easy as it was to find the hotel on arrival, it was easy to visit the flee market just a few blocks away on Monday morning before return to the train station our the airport for our return home. A perfect relaxing and cultural weekend in Amsterdam.

Great location luxury hotel

Enjoyed my stay at this hotel, nice rooms (a bit small but that's par for the course in Europe). Staff were professional and very helpful. Hotel is expensive though with no free wifi or breakfast, that I had at a different hotel of equal standard. But the location is great and there are plenty of food options outside the hotel
