The hotel was great. The staff were very friendly. Great restaurant with excellent food and drink options. Fantastic location. Close to everything including the coffee shop. You can have your breakfast served in your room if you would like. I like that option. This hotel is walking distance to just about anything you need to do in Amsterdam. All the sites and historic places to visit. It’s a beautiful city and very friendly year round. I definitely highly recommend this place. I will be back. The only reason I’m not giving a five star is because it’s an older hotel. It deserves four stars at least.

Dear Jaguar4you Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of your recent stay with us. We are delighted to see that our band members impressed you and that you loved our Art Deco Cafe Americain and our wonderful city centre location, which, as you mentioned, is within walking distance of almost everything the city of Amsterdam has to offer. With regards to the building, and just to clarify, the Hard Rock Hotel Amsterdam American is housed in one of the most iconic buildings in the city while the hotel was completely renovated in 2019 making it one of the newest hotels in Amsterdam but located in a more traditional building. We love that you will be back and cannot wait to see you again. Kind regards Claire van Campen, General Manager - Hard Rock Hotel Amsterdam American T: +31205563000 E: info@hrhamsterdam.com W: hardrockhotels.com/amsterdam-american **SPECIAL NOTE - Please contact us for our exclusive rates and offers that only apply to our guests who book directly.

Clearly all depends on which manager is on duty!! Arrived and everything was amazing then Saturday night of our stay - everything changed. Was very clear it was all due to the manager in charge. Suddenly the rock Royalty lounge was closed early (was supposed to be open til 10pm Yet was closed at 8.30pm) it should be noted we paid extra to have this service so to have it closed meant we were due money back. When I complained someone reluctantly opened It and then all the refrigerators were then locked!!! Had to go back to reception for a second time to have them unlock the items I had paid for. When I then complained to the manager he then said “oh well you’ve had it now” And couldn’t quite fathom how asking the reception desk (twice) to unlock items i had already paid for wasn’t exactly rock Royalty And was actually far from it . Very poor service on the Saturday night. Antagonistic behaviour from someone that was supposed to be the manager in charge. Can’t fault the staff the other nights. This guy was clearly up for closing early. Will be escalating further as he was incredibly rude and perhaps should consider a career outside of hospitality. He massively let down the entire experience of staying at this hotel

From the moment we walked in to the hotel American by hard rock hotels, we were warmly welcomed by the amazing staff. We came too early to check in but the staff looked after us like we’ve been loyal guests (even though it was our first time visiting the hotel) The room we had was on the 5th floor and I can’t complain on how clean it was, the view from our balcony was just amazing, one of the nicest rooms I had in a Amsterdam hotel. Every room had its own artist on the headboard ours was Nina Simone. There’s so many nice things about the hotel I just can’t put into words how amazing my experience was. I just want to give a massive shoutout to Sabina (the vibe manager), David on Concierge, Kristine on check in, Sarah on the bar just name a few of the amazing staff who made our stay that extra special. Thank you so much for an awesome stay hard rock hotel Amsterdam American! I’ll be back before you know it! Thank you for a rocking amazing stay!!

Three nights in a superior balcony, but as many rooms are different in this hotel you really don`t know what you gonna get. Somehow that is part of its charm, as you always get clean, comfortable rooms in a luxurious setting. It is central enough for all your city splurges and I had a really pleasant stay this time. I will for sure come back.

Dear Rockstar! Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. You are correct, we have multiple room types and the entire hotel was completely renovated in 2020 and has such a great vibe that it will be hard not to be impressed. As for our location, as you mentioned, we are in the heart of Amsterdam, directly on the Leidseplein with its great nightlife; a few minutes walk from the Rijks- and Van Gogh museums; and 5 minutes from the fashionable PC Hooftstraat. In fact, everything that you need is pretty much on your doorstep so there is no better base from which to explore the city than here at the Hard Rock Hotel Amsterdam American. Glad you will come back, we cannot wait to welcome you.
