Okura Hotel is away from the center of Amsterdam but transportation is readily available to get to all parts of the city. It is located on a canal and its twenty-three floors provide a vantage point to view many parts of the city. Rooms are clean and well appointed and staff is professional and helpful.
It was a most enjoyable stay in this comfortable and admirably clean hotel. The staff at reception were friendly and exceptionally helpful. At such good value for money, one has to accept that rooms are not particularly spacious, but that is to be expected. I would recommend it to anyone.
Typical European hotel. Tiny room with just enough space for the bed. Beds were very soft, too soft for our taste. Hotel was clean. Continental breakfast was just okay, would have preferred to have eaten at one of the nearby bakeries, but everything was closed for Easter Monday.
After spending 4 days near Dam Square, we really like the neighborhood for this hotel. It was a good choice to stay in two different areas. This hotel was a half block away from 3 and 4 trams. The room was quite comfortable. When the TV didn't work, they were fast at trying to make the repair and quickly gave us a new room. Both rooms were comfortable. The second room didn't have a desk light which was a bit of a problem for working at the corner.
"Nice hotel with easy access to Amsterdam city cent"
We had a great time visiting Amsterdam sight seeing and shopping. The weather was great and we managed to find some good restaurants. Also the tall ship at sail was a great event.b....... .......
The staff member I was in contact with was extremely helpful and went the person I spoke to went out of his way to make my stay pleasant. The room came with a safe, an en suite bathroom, a hair drier, and the B&B even provided an iron and mini ironing board. The location was on a quiet street near to a tram line and with shops and places to eat nearby. The Rijksmuseum (and the Van Gogh museum, which is virtually next door) was within reasonable walking distance. A map was provided by the owner and there was a a space to park my bike just outside. A fridge in the room was stocked with snacks a mixture of drinks. That was included in the room rate. The common area was just outside my room. Towels, toothbrush, toothpaste and shower gel were provided as was a soap dispenser next to the wash basin. Coffee making facilities and satellite TV are also in the room and, also, the common area.
The wash basin was in the room. The en suite just had shower and toilet (plus space to hang towels). Breakfast is left (mostly self service) in the common area at 8am til noon.
The stairs are narrow and steep but that's quite normal in Amsterdam. Some jet noise but airlines only occasionally fly over that part.
Transport infrastructure in centre of city too small for load -- cars, bikes and pedestrians will come into conflict in the central area. Unless using public transport, map necessary as roadworks/construction mean that many diversions in force

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.
