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.

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

Map of Mercure Hotel Amsterdam City

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.
