Nice and comfortable hotel close to the museums and within walking distance to shopping areas. Schipol Airportbus 197 stop close. Boatcruise outside. Trams close. Beautiful building. Nice staff. Free WiFi was not stable, went up and down. We would have preffered selfservice coffe. Now just a cup was served after ordering.

This is my second stay at the American; three years ago we had a wonderful experience and decided to book a four night stay again in April. I booked the room in November 2014 and noted that I needed a room with two beds. A couple weeks before the trip to Amsterdam, I emailed the hotel to remind them that...

We loved everything about this hotel, particularly the delightful staff and comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the canal. A great location and an interesting building in itself. The bed was fabulous.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your loyal visits and review posting. Some of the rooms in the 113-year old building are indeed compact, this goes for a relatively small portion of the total inventory. We have innercourt rooms available for the light sleepers! Thank you for your compliments and we look forward to welcome you again soon! Kind regards,

Comfortable hotel with professional staff, excellent breakfast and great location. Within walking distance of most museums, the theatre and concert hall. Boat sightseeing in front of the door. Not a quirky boutique hotel but a hotel with a reliable good standard. We can recommend it!!

What a treat! Let me start by saying, we had a hotel reserved close to the train station for about $330 EUR a night (we were only in Amsterdam 2 nights).
