Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Okura Amsterdam
Some details missing ...from nicolasj
Location is good for the RAu conference center. The hotel is on a road with atram line, so you can get to all parts of town, but the trip to the heart of the city will take 20 minutes. It's located close to some canals, but not he nicest ones with the istoric houses. The view from the rooms is good, but not really below the 9th floor. The entrance road is bumpy and not well kept. They need a new gardener. There is an ugly car park and and office block between the main road and the hotel.
Check inn is relatively fast and staff are on hand to take care of lugage. The whole atmosphere is of a good 4 star hotel, but not really 5 star. Staff speaks several language, but oddly enough I had difficulties getting the staff to speak dutch, their native language (well not for all of them it seems ...)
The lifts are quite slow and rattling.
The basement has a business center and a small shop. Efficient, but the low ceiling and decoration make it more like a 3 star experience down there. I didn't use or see the Spa facilities.
My room was on the 19th floor and did have everything one needs or expects in a luxury hotel room. It was nice and clean, but warm and not easy to cool down. The room is nor very large for 5 star standards, and decoration is 'decent' but there are no surprises and the more modern minimalistic or 'lounge' styles are not present in all rooms
There were tipsy noisy people in the corridors at 2am.
The lifts are slow.
Rooms are not sound proof (internal wamms and doors).
Doubtfull individuals in the bar area.
5 star amenities but 4 sar atmosphere.

Cracking hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel was superb. Clean, friendly & to of the standard i expected.
Our room had a wall mounted plama screen at the end of the bed, which was a nice touch. The bathroom was nicely layed out with a bath big enough for 2!!, and a walk in shower!!.
The room had a double bed, as apposed to two singles pushed together, which seems the norm in europe.
The staff could not do enough for you.
Breakfast was included in the room, and was fantastic.
Champagne breakfast before setting off into the town, seemed to start the day appropriately =)
Room service was good, the food was lovely.
We will definately stop here again, hopefully in the next couple of months.
Its OKfrom Mand-Lou
I was upgraded to a suite upon check in, which gave ma a corner room, very spacious with a great view (and slight canal view). The standard was as you would expect: Very clean, functional. Furniture was by no means modern, but all in a good condition, the bathroom was tiny but well equipped with toiletries/robes/slippers. I forgot my plug adapter and when I called down to ask for one, it took 10 minutes for it to arrive for them to bring me the wrong one, I then had to sign and later realised that they charged 5EUROS for the 'convenience of borrowing it'. The leisure facitilies looked great but I didnt get a chance to use them.
The location is good, if you want to be in a 'nice' area slightly nearer to the airport rather than the immediate centre. Everywhere in Amsterdam is easy to get to within 15 mins, and to get to the centre you would take a taxi which (dependant upon the time of day) would take 5-10 mins.
Overall, this is a well-kept hotel, with OK service (in the restaurants and reception) and had good facilities particuarly for business customers. It certainly wont 'wow' you but I am guessing it is probably one of the best hotels in Amsterdam.

Hotel Okura, Amsterdam: Good location, great servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
SUPERBfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Overall, the Okura is a superb hotel, the buffet breakfast had a huge and varied choice and the room was fabulous. The stay was just what we needed after a hectic 5 days in Paris - it was warm and friendly without being obtrusive. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous and helped us with our sightseeing and getting around on the trams. The BEST bit of our stay were the WONDERFUL STAFF who were warm and friendly and made us feel at home whether we were in our Sunday best or in our jeans. I wouldn't go anywhere else !!

A long way from the centerfrom janehudson
Great view and breakfast, though not worth 5 starsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Room was decent. Normal size and Clean. But it could use some re-decoration. Many japanese. The upper level (23rd floor) restaurant has a michelin star for its japanese food, but I didn't eat there.
Top Local Tips for Amsterdam
Odessa Boat Love this restaurant in an old boat. www.odessa.nl. Dinner is always great, service is lovely sometimes a bit absenty minded but the food is great and atmosphere is really relaxed. In the summer the deck is superb. On the weekends a dj after dinner so you can even do some dancing.
red light district go to the red light district!! and go on a canal boat tour like we did - an hour and 15 mins for just €8 pp.
Airport to Hotel No need for expensive taxis to get from the airport to the hotel. The train leaves from inside the airport and once outside the train station at the other end, you step outside to the tram terminals. The tram is clean and reliable. The conductors are friendly and will announce your hotel if you tell them where you are staying.
