“Good location , Great staff, Lovely rooms”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

Just back from 4 night here, 3 mins walk from Amsterdam Zuid station (also known as WTC), there you can get to Schiphol in 8 mins or down town in 15 mins, you have a choice of train.bus, metro or Tram. Hotel itself is almost brand new, rooms are clean and very large for Amsterdam . welcome by check in staff was prompt and friendly , room facilities included an espresso, flat screen TV with more than enough English channels , super comfy bed and blackout curtains that do just that. Would recommend this hotel anyone, have stayed in center before and without ear plugs you struggle to sleep, in this hotel you get no such problems

Dear valued guest,

Thank you so much for writing on Tripadvisor about your stay at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South. We were happy to read in your review that the hotel, its facilities and the staff members were up to your satisfaction.

Great as well that you would recommend our location for a good night’s sleep. Not only is the hotel situated in a peaceful and quiet area but on top of that Crowne Plaza also features the Sleep Advantage Program including Quiet Zones (our fifth floor), plump soft pillows, luxurious duvets, deeply indulgent mattress toppers, sleeping tips and aroma therapy. Hopefully you were able to benefit from this program as well.

Thank you again for your review and we hope to welcome you back as our guest in the near future.

We initially chose the Crowne Plaza South in large part due to its proximity to the RAI convention center. It was such a great experience, however, that we would happily stay again if visiting the city for vacation. It's nearly effortless to reach the hotel from the airport via train: simply disembark at the first stop (Amsterdam Zuid), exit the station on the south (Mahlerplein) side, and walk two short blocks. The hotel lobby was airy and inviting; a nice welcoming touch was the trio of water pitchers flavored with fresh mint or lime or lemon from which to pour oneself a cool drink. The staff were friendly and efficient.

The hotel is ideally situated for accessing multiple tram lines as well as the subway and bus. We enjoyed taking different lines in order to see a wide variety of Dutch neighborhoods. As many have already pointed out, the hotel is not in the city center but we appreciated being able to return at the end of a long day to peaceful surroundings. In addition, the hotel is close to the huge Amsterdamse Bos green area to the west and the beautiful Amstelpark to the east with a windmill at its southern tip. There was a small mall, including a grocery store, just a couple blocks south of the hotel.

The hotel room was clean and spacious, with a modern, chic design, and had a safe, a small refrigerator, an electric hot water pot for coffee or tea, a lounge chair and ottoman, a small desk and work chair, and a flat panel TV. For travelers requiring a dark sleep environment, there are very effective black-out curtains on the windows and a well-placed curtain in the room to pull out if one wanted to block even the small amount of light coming in from under the hallway door. The impeccably clean bathroom had feature walls tiled in a deep plum color, a nice contrast to the rest of the area in sparkling white, black, and chrome.

We noticed the day we checked out that they also rent bikes, which would be perfect for exploring some of the parks in the area. There is a daily charge for wifi it but it might be waived if you're one of their Priority Club members. The only less-than-glowing comment was that, at least during our stay, the TV interface to the hotel and local information could be really slow at times.

One tip: for a splurge meal, try out the restaurant Bolenius around the corner from the hotel.

Room Tip: Room on a higher floor was extremely quiet.

Dear valued guest,

We are very grateful that you took the time to write such an elaborate review on Tripadvisor following your recent stay at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South. It was especially great to read that you consider the hotel a suitable location for both business as leisure purposes.

Business guests indeed select the hotel due to its location in the Amsterdam- Zuid business district and the proximity to the RAI convention centre and Schiphol International Airport.

Leisure guests on the other hand should absolutely not be put off by our quiet location outside the city centre. The public transportation options from Station Amsterdam Zuid enable you to be in downtown Amsterdam within 20 minutes to enjoy the sights, shops and the diverse cultural offer.

If you want to feel like a true Amsterdam inhabitant, rent one of our hotel bikes and explore the city on two wheels. Over 400 km of bicycle path combined with its narrow streets make Amsterdam the perfect city to explore by bike.

After a long day of impressions and excitement, the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South and its natural surrounding area is a peaceful haven to unwind and relax.

We are very happy that you enjoyed the hotel and its environment and we do hope to be your hotel of choice upon your next visit to Amsterdam.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen

I had stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and 4 days for business. What we really appreciated was the early check in on the day of our arrival. The rooms are of good size and so are the meeting rooms. The bar and the restaurant serve a nice selection of food and drinks and it isn't very pricey. However, it is far from the city center though walking distance from a metro station. Somehow breakfast wasn't part of the room and was average. Would recommend this hotel if you plan on going for business.

This is a brand-new hotel. the rooms are comfy large and well designed. the staff is nice and friendly and the location is very convinient if you work at the WTC in A'dam. Within 15 minutes metro ride from the city center, you can even enjoy the nightlife of the capital holland. If you are not a business trip, do not stay here

Dear valued guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience with the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South on Tripadvisor. All feedback we receive is highly appreciated as we always strive to improve our service and product.

We are happy that you were positive about our rooms and staff members. Due to our location in the heart of the Zuidas area, mostly business guests know how to find us. However the area has quite some nice lunch, dining and shopping options to offer and is rapidly being developed to become an international top location for living, working and recreation. Our Front Desk team will be more than happy to inform you about things to do and see in the surrounding area of the hotel and of course in downtown Amsterdam.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen

I just returned from and 8 day stay in Amsterdam on business at the RAI. I stayed at the brand new Crowne Plaza Amsterdam South and couldn't have been happier or more comfortable.

It is centrally located, from a business perspective, in South Amsterdam which is a fast growing area for business and technology. Access to the Amsterdam Zuid (south) station is a short walk away which services the Subway and the Train. On the other size of Zuid is the Tram and buses. Each or any of these can quickly, cheaply and easily have you in any part of Amsterdam in 10 - 25 minutes depending upon where you want to go.

The hotel is top notch. The rooms were large, the lounge was comfortable and full amenities, and the staff were always accommodating and helpful.

If there was one thing that could be improved upon it would be the wireless network connectivity. It did range in strength radically based on location. That said, it worked and throughput was very workable.

Obviously staying in downtown has distinct advantages, but comfort and large rooms will not be one unless you want to pay through the nose. If you don't mind or are adventurous when it comes to transportation, then I would highly recommend this hotel location.

Room Tip: Construction of a new building is taking place on the East side of the building. It starts at 8am a...

Dear valued guest,

Thank you so much for informing us through Tripadvisor about your stay with us at the Crowne Plaza Amsterdam- South. It was an absolute pleasure to read your very positive and complimentary words about our location, facilities and staff. Reviews like these give us extra motivation to continue to work on improving our product and service.

We also sincerely appreciate the fact that you pointed out an improvement point. As we live in an era in which social media and internet play a vital role in both the business- as private life of most individuals, offering fast and properly functioning internet should absolutely be one of the points of focus in any hotel.

The hotel is set in a major new development area in Amsterdam: the Zuidas. This area is rapidly becoming a new urban centre devoted to international commerce and knowledge development. Also apartment buildings are being developed of which one close by the hotel. The construction of the foundation, which was at times audible in the hotel, has now been finished. Any nuisance to our guests should therefore have come to an end.

Once again we thank you for your review and we hope to have you back as our guest upon your next visit to Amsterdam.

With kind regards,

Ingrid van Veen
