InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam Review

Elegant enough to please a queen, extroverted enough to welcome pop stars, this grand hotel with its palatial facade and regal guest quarters has wowed just about everyone since it opened its doors in 1867. You'll feel like a visiting dignitary when entering the magnificent lobby, with its grand double staircase that demands you glide, not walk. Fresh tulips, along with Persian carpets and warm hues, enliven the guest rooms and bathrooms, spoil guests with showerheads the size of dinner plates. The generous staff-to-guest ratio, the Michelin-starred La Rive restaurant—where chef Roger Rassim dishes out his Mediterranean-style delights—the riverside terrace, the cozy Amstel Lounge, and the endless stream of extra "little touches" (such as a yacht service) ensure a truly baronial experience. A health center is one of many modern amenities.

    Amstel - Queen of luxury

    This is a special InterContinental and much better than the rest - not just the physical property which the group is lucky to enjoy but also the management. Very good and flawless. From the white gloved service to the indoor pool, exceptional linens and outstanding food and beverage this is one of my absolute favorite places in not just Amsterdam but in all of Europe. What is really nice is the hotel is about a 15 minute walks from the action around the Red Light district yet once in the neighborhood surrounding the hotel, the pace slows considerably and quiet ensues. Its worth the money and a wonderful get away. I recommend it highly.

    Wouldn't stay anywhere else....I've been three times in the last decade and it's always been outstanding.
