Fodor's Review

The monumental Krasnapolsky is one of the few places in Amsterdam where you can still inhale a true Belle Epoque atmosphere—though sadly, not in the frustratingly bland though well-maintained guest rooms. The Reflet restaurant is a 19th-century oasis of elegance, and the soaringly beautiful Wintertuin (Winter Garden) is now the hotel's breakfast room (also open to nonguests). Sitting in this masterpiece of 19th-century allure, under a greenhouse roof and replete

with potted palms, Victorian chandeliers, and buffet tables stocked with cakes and roses, might make you feel like a countess or duke. Later you can sweat out your indulgences in the well-equipped gym.

good place to start

A good value for its location and hotel amenities. The service was fine, not fantastic, and the room was good but not great. I think 4 or 5 stars is too high a rating for this hotel. It's not a quiet location, that's for sure, it's a bit seedy very late at night. Many coffeeshops nearby and the Red Light district is close. A good place to stay if you've never been to Amsterdam.

Five-star location, but...

many things that could be easily remedied. Door to bathroom secured by magnet that cracks like a pistol when opened - guaranteed to wake anyone else sleeping in the room. Service polite and friendly but inattentive and unable to resolve difficulties of their own making. But - the location is wonderful, and the interior is very pleasant, indeed. (The bar is not at all cozy, though, and closes at 1 a.m. - strange in such a nocturnal city.) If you

can get it at a discount, as I did, you might well enjoy your stay.

Great hotel

Located in the center it's a full service hotel. We have stayed there many times, and found it to be the best option. I highly reccommend it.

Europeans were right: it smells

Right before we left, August 14, I found at a European travel forum several complaints about a smell in the rooms. Sent a question to our tour guide in A'dam - he didn't know. We decided to take a chance. Guess what: there was a smell. The room, "business room, sleeps 3", was so small, I could not fully open the bar. A real 4-star hotel is not allowed to have a room like this. Cannot say anything about the restaurant, but what was served in the cafe

had nothing in common with our order. Luxurious? Yes, in 19th century. Huge disapointment, especially after Radisson SAS in Brussels.
