and the best suite in the house was the only room left. Both stays were very memorable for quite different reasons, but one memory I'll always cherish is breakfast in the wonderfully-ornate art deco dining room. A landmark in design.

It's a good hotel and it is placed in the heart of night life of Amsterdam. Every nightclub and coffeshop and also coffe or resturant places near this hotel maximum 10 minutes by walk. The employee of hotel was kindly and polite but my room was not enouflgh worm and the radiotor was worked randomly

Very nice hotel! Everything perfect. The only problem is the location, a bit far from the center. But strongly recommend.

You’re in the thick of it all at the American! The elegant building stands over Leidseplein Square, where you’ll find the Apple Store, the famous Bulldog Cafe Coffee Shop, tons of nightclubs, an ice-skating rink in the winter and lots of shops and restaurants. It's a short walk to the art museums and Vondelpark and the tram line is literally outside. The bedrooms are of a really good size, and there is minimal noise from the beating nightlife downstairs which was pleasing. If you can, request a balcony where you can enjoy a bottle of wine looking over the canal, or have a soak in the deep tub. The retro bar downstairs is worth the visit - you can have a gander at the pics on the wall of all the celebs who’ve partied in Amsterdam and staff make a mean gin cocktail. A charming gem in the perfect location.

I will start with location , right next to Leidseplein . Close to shopping area and in front of a tour canal . I guess that's why they can get away with the condition of the hotel . I found the room a bit old feeling . The carpet was ruined and the bed was not comfortable enough . The stuff is friendly !

If you’re looking for comfort in the center of chaos (otherwise known as Amsterdam’s Leidseplein), make your way to the American Hotel. The first thing you notice when approaching is their large water fountain and the Bar American’s inviting outdoor seating. The indoor seating for the bar is equally welcoming, especially if you’re looking for a bit more intimacy (grab a window seat if you don’t want to miss any out on the action outside). The hotel bedrooms come with extra spacious beds, so I would recommend an upgrade if you also want more room space overall. Balconies are available for rooms that border the hotel – although the goings-on outside are constantly lively and may be noisy, it’s worth it to enjoy your morning coffee looking out onto Leidseplein’s dynamic streets. Final tip: don’t miss out on the hotel’s live music Jazz brunch, every Sunday at the Café American – a restaurant environment like none other in Amsterdam.

I stayed there for 9 days in 2008. I have been to other countries and hotels with 4 and 5 star ratings. None has been as memorable as my stay in American hotel for following reasons:
- smiling faces of staff
- helpfulness of staff to the guests including the housekeeping, room service , conciege and etc. (Being an Iranian I have never been equally treated to other guests in other hotels )
- hotel managers know the true meaning of CLEAN. It is truly clean particularly for my areas of concern i.e. bathroom, sheets and towels.

I will certainly retur there.

Los Angeles, California, USA

Historic hotel emblazoned in Jugendstil. The hotel may not have had a facelift in quite a while, but when you look like this on the inside, you don't have to. Think 30's and 40's architecture and ornate carpets and chandeliers and you get the drift. The adjacent American restaurant has a very famous high tea every day. And the price of the hotel is quite reaonsable considering it has THE best location in Amsterdam for tourists.ff


Nice hotel, small rooms, but really centrally located!

Rome, Italy

Un hotel in cui sicuramente tornerei, le camere deluxe sono veramente spaziose. Anche se l'arredamento interno risulta essenziale e non rispecchia lo stile liberty del cafè restorant sottostante, la pulizia delle stanze e la gentilezza del personale riscattano la scarsa eleganza dell'ambiente. La sua collocazione in posizione strategica permette di spostarsi facilmente con ogni mezzo disponibile per visitare la città.
