How to Get There
We were on our way back to the United States after a nine day vacation in Italy. I had planned a post extension trip to Amsterdam and Haarlem to visit the Corrie ten Boon House, the Anne Frank House and a few other popular tourist attractions while visiting the Netherlands. I booked the Hotel Okura Amsterdam because it was a 5 star hotel with great ratings. I was told it was centrally located so everything we wanted to see would be easy to get to by public transportation. The pictures on the web depicted beautiful rooms, a gorgeous lobby, a relaxing spa area, great restaurants, etc.
When we checked in and took the elevator up to our room, we were totally blown away by the view and the spacious, comfortable, inviting and beautifully appointed room. We just wanted to stop and relax, but we knew we had to start exploring Amsterdam.
When we got down to the lobby and met our concierge, Onne Schepel, we couldn't believe how helpful he was. He totally went over and beyond the call of duty to make our stay the best ever. I've stayed in many hotels in different countries, but have never had the opportunity to experience the red carpet treatment that Mr. Schepel provided. What an asset to Hotel Okura. He helped us with our canal ride, restaurants, transportation, museums, etc. We couldn't have done it without his help. He always made sure that we had the correct directions, the correct stops to the places we wanted to visit, and the correct tram, bus, subway, train, etc. He even printed out maps for us. He provided incredible and amazing service especially since we had never been to Amsterdam before and were not familiar with this city at all.
He never made us feel like we were bothering him. He was so friendly, so helpful, and most of all so professional. Like the Hotel Okura, he reflected the same high standards, grace and class that any fine hotel concierge would have but was a step above . We absolutely loved how he took such good care of us. He made such an impression on us, that we would love to revisit Amsterdam and stay at the Hotel Okura and hope that he would still be there.
Situated a bit outside city center. Allow 15 min walk to restaurants and bar area. 40 € taxi from AirPort to hotel. Very professional staff. 4 elevators move people 23 floors, queues when conference guests rush for their rooms.
Several japanese restaurants inside hotel with formal Michelin stars, unclear if it is worth the high prizes but food is good. Avoid inhouse breakfast, expensive. You can find small restaurants near hotel. Spacious room, I had a superior King. Very good bed and reading lamps. Peculiar glass wall open into bathroom, it was closed with a curtain in the evening by the maid, who also make the bed and place the slippers convenient beside the bed.
Very good Internet. High speed and reliable.
The spacious room, generous amenities, and exemplary attention by staff made this a most memorable stay. The location, close to a tram stop, is convenient, too. EXTRA shout out to Michael Malaihollo, Reception. His constant courtesy and professionalism truly helped us plan our site-seeing and transportation. We LOVED Amsterdam! The breakfast buffet was sumptuous; we enjoyed joining others from our Viking trip and sharing site-seeing plans and tips. (Seeing them each morning helped us to make fun dinner plans with several other couples, despite our doing our own things during the day.)
The Okura is just minutes from the Concertgebouw, Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, and so many other wonderful places in Amsterdam. The Okura and its staff are immaculate. The hotel houses 3 Michelin-starred restaurants. I can say that Ciel Bleu, 2 stars, where we dined 2 floors up from our suite, is one of the finest culinary experiences I’ve ever had. I will definitely stay at The Okura again! It’s what a fine hotel should be in every way.
Just back from Amsterdam where we stayed at The Okura. Very accessible to Tram, Bus and Taxi. The staff was very polite, room was large and clean. Food was great. We toughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Okura.
