Great stay at the Hotel Okura - we were welcomed with a lovely surprise of upgrades to two Junior Suites. The staff were attentive and courteous without being overpowering. Despite two International football teams staying in the hotel whilst we were there - apart from a few fans outside there was no interruption to our stay. Concierge were wonderful in recommending fabulous eateries nearby so we ate Indonesian, Argentinian and Turkish (twice it was so good !). Tickets for the van Gough exhibition and the international football match were obtained with ease. A great experience and we cant wait to return.
Hotel is only a 10 min walk from the airport shuttle bus. Very easy to find. Great rooms and staff very helpful. Take a walk in the local market and get a feel for the area. Bar is lively and the area is quite trendy - but not full off boozy louts - so has a good vibe. Its a good walk to the main areas but taxi and tram are nearby - hire the bikes from the hotel great fun and you are in the center in 5 mins of pedal power!

The hotel is not exactly near to the center, but comfort and services are good. Remember to take a bike rental to reach the center, otherwise you should take public transportation which is quite expensive
Stayed here as all other A'dam options were booked. Hotel has a nice location opposite park. Nice to be out of the touristy area. Room (a single) was, however, EXTREMELY small, but VERY clean. Bed had nice down comforter. Shower was a pain as it had a sleep slope for people to sit in the small tub. I actually think it would give elderly or people with poor balance extreme trouble showering.

The Pipe' (its derivation is a mystery) is a quiet residential suburb with a cosmopolitan bohemian air thanks to a large number of immigrants and the recent gentrification of the area by an arty crowd. Running through the centre, the daily Albert Cuyp Market is the largest in the city. De Pijp is also renowned for its restaurants which serve some of Amsterdam's best ethnic (Syrian, Moroccan, Surinamese, Turkish etc) food.
