How to Get There
The hotel has a serious problem with housekeeping, and the room was made up only after several calls. Same for the evening turndown service, when I was also told rudely that getting new water bottles was not possible. No manager available to report these issues.
The breakfast buffet is very average for a hotel with three Michelin stars. Very uneven service with little attention for the customers.
Otherwise, good renovation of the building,nice room and excellent sports facilities.
Overall, not five stars at all and not the level expected from the Okura chain.
Arrived on a busy afternoon at Okura Amsterdam with 2 kids. While waiting for check-in, the lovely guest-service lady Darin, approached me seeing that the kids were little at unease. She said “relax, take care of the check-in, and I will meanwhile take care of the kids”.
Returning to the lobby after unpacking in the room, I thanked Darin again, and before I knew it, she made a plan for the whole afternoon for us. We went out and among others had a very interesting canal boat trip, Artis Zoo and Nemo.
When we returned to the room, I heard a exciting scream from the kids. Two “mifi” dolls were on the bed.
What a service! Big thank you to Darin.
Deserves very well being a 5-star Hotel.
Coming soon again.
I stayed for 4 nights and it was a peaceful experience. I stayed on the 8th floor with a good view of the whole city. The room is smartly decorated with a lovely bathroom with a tub and a shower. You can raise the blinds and soak in the views from the bathroom. Chair and desk and the cupboards quite useful. coffee machine is OK would have preferred a better option to fill water and heart it for tea! They don't give you any complimentary welcome drink or water bottle.however it is said that tap water is vv pure to drink. The breakfast is included in the room rent. there's a wide variety and you will eat a lot and feel satisfied. The maitre de Mr. Hanif from Punjab was an excellent culinary guide and vv helpful. The people at the front desk are cheerful but don't know much about getting around the city or the public commute. They sell day cards for the trams but don't have a clue about how to order a pizza for a dinner. Given the large number of Indians and vegetarians the front desk should be trained on providing these options and have some tie ups. The rooms are well maintained.The ballroom and conference rooms are very good. Food again is a problem if you are a pure vegetarian as the staff are not very sensitive to that.They don't label vegetarian food and you have to keep asking if it has meat or egg.
There is a canal by the hotel and you can rent a boat from here. There are lovely walks by the hotel. The Di pijp flea market is a tram stop away and a must visit. The gym and spa are great.
All in all a good experience
