great location, friendly staff and very nice hotel

this is a very nice hotel in a very good location, and the staff were lovely and tried to be as accommodating as possible. the only downside to this hotel was the lack of a swimming pool (which I believe doesn't exist in many hotels in Amsterdam)

Brilliant Hotel Couldn't have asked for more

From being greeting with the Red Carpet entrance to leaving the following day everything was marvellous. No faults at all. Staff were very friendly and bent over backwards to make you feel welcome and did everything to make our stay good. Upon checkout they stored our case until later in the day and even gave us a bottle of water each for our journey home. Only little things but you could tell that this hotel really cares about its customers. Have to say the Red Carpet outside the entrance is a really nice touch. Thank you.

Midweek couples break

The hotel has a perfect location and the staff were very helpful and polite.the room was good but there is no views other than a brick wall from our room which meant very little natural light .this would not put me off using hotel again as location and staff were excellent.

Central location but somewhat disappointing.

We spent 3 nights here, 2 couples in 2 rooms both at the back of the hotel. Rooms looked out over Burger King in a very busy street. There was significant noise from this street at all times, delivery lorries and people shouting in the wee small hours. The glazing did not mask this sufficiently and we all suffered from a lack of sleep. The rooms could do with a makeover, scuffed paintwork, dated marble tiling, poor over bath shower. Could not get Nespresso machine to produce a decent cup of coffee in either room. Staff at front desk were fine although forgot to ask us ( both couples) to sign an area of our registration form so they deactivated our room keys to bring us to the desk. We also felt they could have mentioned the daily room fee at check-in. No doubt it is in the small print somewhere but we were told of the charge on check-out. Not a major problem, but it may have been for some. We are regular travellers and have experienced many hotels. Overall, we were underwhelmed by this one.

When in Amsterdam stay nowhere else but here.

Staff 1st class,couldn't do enough for us. Very clean rooms and every night covers turned and a choclate on the pillow. A bottle of water each side of the bed every night also. Very good location,8 minute walk from Cenrtaal Station. Great value for money. Would recommend this hotel and the next time I go away for a city break would use this chain of hotels as I was very impressed with every aspect of our stay.

Central location, comfortable and clean hotel

Great location near the centre and walking distance from the station. Can get a little noise at night, but the double window deals with that. Clean and comfortable and staff were really helpful.

Good weekend break hotel

We were mwde very welcome at The Swissotel which is ideally placed for city centre amenities. It is only 10 minutes walk from the railway station. The staff were very helpful when we needed advice.
