    If you’re looking for comfort in the center of chaos (otherwise known as Amsterdam’s Leidseplein), make your way to the American Hotel. The first thing you notice when approaching is their large water fountain and the Bar American’s inviting outdoor seating. The indoor seating for the bar is equally welcoming, especially if you’re looking for a bit more intimacy (grab a window seat if you don’t want to miss any out on the action outside). The hotel bedrooms come with extra spacious beds, so I would recommend an upgrade if you also want more room space overall. Balconies are available for rooms that border the hotel – although the goings-on outside are constantly lively and may be noisy, it’s worth it to enjoy your morning coffee looking out onto Leidseplein’s dynamic streets. Final tip: don’t miss out on the hotel’s live music Jazz brunch, every Sunday at the Café American – a restaurant environment like none other in Amsterdam.

    Un hotel in cui sicuramente tornerei, le camere deluxe sono veramente spaziose. Anche se l'arredamento interno risulta essenziale e non rispecchia lo stile liberty del cafè restorant sottostante, la pulizia delle stanze e la gentilezza del personale riscattano la scarsa eleganza dell'ambiente. La sua collocazione in posizione strategica permette di spostarsi facilmente con ogni mezzo disponibile per visitare la città.

    I stayed there for 9 days in 2008. I have been to other countries and hotels with 4 and 5 star ratings. None has been as memorable as my stay in American hotel for following reasons:
    - smiling faces of staff
    - helpfulness of staff to the guests including the housekeeping, room service , conciege and etc. (Being an Iranian I have never been equally treated to other guests in other hotels )
    - hotel managers know the true meaning of CLEAN. It is truly clean particularly for my areas of concern i.e. bathroom, sheets and towels.

    I will certainly retur there.

    The first time I stayed here was with my grandmother over two decades ago. The next was a few years later when I staggered in after a little too much celebrating one New Year's eve and the best suite in the house was the only room left. Both stays were very memorable for quite different reasons, but one memory I'll always cherish is breakfast in the wonderfully-ornate art deco dining room. A landmark in design.

    Historic hotel emblazoned in Jugendstil. The hotel may not have had a facelift in quite a while, but when you look like this on the inside, you don't have to. Think 30's and 40's architecture and ornate carpets and chandeliers and you get the drift. The adjacent American restaurant has a very famous high tea every day. And the price of the hotel is quite reaonsable considering it has THE best location in Amsterdam for tourists.ff
