"Very pleased!"
What can I say, excellent hotel! I went here with my partner for a long weekend to experience Amsterdam & the location of this hotel was ideal! Its located next to the canal and plenty of museums, bars and shopping close by. We never ate in the restaurant but the menu looked excellent! Our room was clean and spacious and the bed was ridiculously comfortable :-) If I am ever lucky enough to return to Amsterdam I would love to stay at the American again!

"Can't fault! "
We stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2017 and we were really happy with our choice of hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted by some really friendly and smiling members of staff. We were also given an upgrade to a junior suite (thank you Claire) for no extra cost, which was a real treat. The room we had was spotless with a HUGE bed (room 307!). The decor was modern and the whole hotel appeared well maintained. Great selection of complimentary coffee in the room (Nespresso machine?) and nice selection of toiletries for use. The hotel is well situated- 3 different trams stop outside (1,2 and 5) but if you like walking, the centre of town is only approximately 20 minutes away and when you are taking in the sights, this seems like no walk at all. On the day we left, the hotel were happy to store our bags whilst we explored for a few hours before returning for our luggage. Upon check out, the receptionist was helpful in printing out our boarding passes for the return flight which was really kind of her. The gentleman who was on duty to help carrying bags etc., let us know that there is a direct bus (number 197) which leaves across the road from the hotel and takes you to the airport for €5- very convenient, journey takes around 45 mins. I also noticed this employee handing out some umbrellas to guests who were going out for the day- I thought that gesture was really kind and excellent customer service. Would recommend and would definitely stay here again.

"Awesome location! Great, kind staff. Not very expensive, near a popular area."
I took a balcony room (cruical for smokers) and the room has very pampering bath tubs. The rooms are clean, staff are kind and the service is exquisite. Room is in good taste, king sized bed is very comfortable and I recommend asking for it in particular.

"Lovely hotel"
Great location and very welcoming staff. Not cheap but quite classy . We were next to the canal and so great for a boat trip and we were also in a good position in terms of the museums and the nightlife of Amsterdam. Very spacious room

"the American is A Palace"
The most beautiful building + crazy town = good times. So here's The Real on The American: it's all about the ambiance there. Sitting in their main restaurant instantly makes u part of The Lost Generation (if u don't know what that is than open a book people!). U can imagine Hemingway sitting next to one of the enormous windows overlooking the piazza and the colorful river of people walking by. It's a quite hotel, that's for sure. But the views of the canal, the generous size of the room, the giant private balcony all come together and provide a sense of royalty. Bottom line: The American is A Palace. One thing: last time we stayed there ( we come once or twice a year) they had smoked salmon at breakfast and pancakes. It's a shame they took it out...still it's a nice spread, though.



Be inspired in the Van Gogh Museum. Nowhere else in the world can so many Vincent van Gogh paintings be seen together. The permanent collection comprises around 200 paintings, 500 drawings and more than 750 letters. The Stedelijk Museum is the MoMA of Amsterdam. Its most popular pieces are The Beanery by Edward Kienholz and works by Kazimir Malevitsj, Matisse, Het Bauhaus and De Stijl. Alongside Rembrandt’s Nachtwacht (Night Watch), here you will also find masterpieces by Johannes Vermeer and Frans Hals among others.



From the Hampshire Hotel – Amsterdam American you can easily attend a performance in the DeLaMar Theatre, the Stadsschouwburg or Theater Bellevue. In summer, from June through September there are free shows – cabaret, music and dance – in the Vondelpark Open Air Theatre.
