Amstel, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • 3 distinct restaurants and a Dutch "brown" bar
  • Outdoor canal-side terrace is great for summer drinks
  • All rooms have flat-screen TVs and minibars
  • Sauna and fitness center
  • Ideal for business travelers with ample meeting space
  • Bikes and taxis are readily available to access city attractions
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Parking is available, for a fee

Cons

  • Located outside of Amsterdam's city center
  • Restaurant hours and menu items can be limited
  • Expensive breakfast buffet
  • Elevator delays are common

Bottom Line

Tall and modern in design, this unmistakable 368-room hotel is a reliable choice near Amsterdam's business district. Because of the suburban location, and the 14 multi-use meeting rooms, it attracts a core group of working travelers who have their own vehicles (parking is available for a fee). The friendly atmosphere also suits couples and families who don't mind a bit of a journey to get into the city center. Overall, the decor is tasteful, and three unique restaurants and a Dutch "brown" bar provide nice places to unwind. During summer months, guests can enjoy a drink on the waterside terrace set along the picturesque Amstel river -- by far the best view from the hotel. As far as guest rooms are concerned, the difference between room types is quite dramatic. The standard rooms have an eclectic slightly dated feel, whereas the Privilege rooms have a contemporary flair, with designer fixtures and additional amenities. Wi-Fi is free throughout, and workaholics can burn off steam in the sauna and fitness center.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A suburban location that is not pedestrian-friendly, but guests can access the city via taxi or metro

This slightly out-of-the-way hotel mostly appeals to business travelers with their own vehicles, but taxis and public transport allow other guests to gain access to the city. The nearest metro station is Overamstel -- a 10 minute walk away -- and it takes about a half hour to get to the city center. This is important, as the area is mostly residential and/or industrial, and there are few offerings for tourists. The hotel does provide bike hire, but the journey to the city is long and not picturesque.

  • 15-minute drive to Schiphol Airport
  • 10-minute drive to Magere Brug (famous draw-bridge)
  • 11-minute drive to Van Gogh Museum
  • 12-minute drive to Scheepvaartmuseum
  • 12-minute drive to Rijksmuseum
  • 14-minute drive to Amsterdam Brown Cafe
  • 15-minute drive to Amsterdam Centraal
  • 15-minute drive to Oude Kerk (historic Protestant church)
  • 15-minute drive to Museum Amstelkring
  • 16-minute drive to Anne Frank House
  • 17-minute drive to Civic Guards Gallery
