ANDAZ AMSTERDAM: Luxury Hotel Review @AndazAMS

By Two Monkeys Travel - Contributor June 11th, 2016 Posted in Europe Travel Blog, Luxury Hotel Review 41 Comments

My last day in Amsterdam. I wished I could stay longer as the weather was just getting better. As every trip has, the end came. To house my last stay in the Netherlands’ capital before going back to Germany, Andaz provided one of its best rooms to give me a great impression on the unique vibe in the city.

It’s all about details.

The whole concept of Andaz Amsterdam circled on blue. The hotel got me there; I love blue in most of its shades.

This five-star boutique hotel offers the true treasure of the Amsterdam as it narrates the boundless timeline of the city through the whole interior, from the lobby until your room.

From a public library, Andaz Amsterdam has been seamlessly transformed into a refine hotel thru the Dutch Architect Marcel Wanders. Luxury has been put in a more creative way at Andaz Amsterdam!

ACCOMMODATION

With 122 modish rooms and five vast suites, Andaz has laid each in a unique set up which every guest will surely be amused, by enjoying the complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic drinks from the mini bar, local phone calls and Wi-Fi.

The Garden View Twin Room served as my last accommodation in Amsterdam for my April trip. I was fortunate to be settled in an intimate set up despite the obviously busy city.

The bed has an interesting glass near in the pillows which I worried at first that I might break it. However, the entire ingenuity of the room instantly shifted that little worry into wonder. Set in the sides of the bed are the tulip-themed chair where you can eye the garden and the naturally-created sink.

The fish and the glass in the wall, highlighting most of the room is the artist’s view on Amsterdam as the staff explained. It’s not that he loves fish but it’s how two totally different things can actually go together. The artist believed that Amsterdam is a rich of variances that make it more exciting to discover.

I rarely appreciate the ‘beauty’ of a toilet until my stay at Andaz Amsterdam.

Never been fascinated to sit in the bowl while facing interesting information in front of me. Truly, only in Andaz.

As for a short stay, I did not have a chance to explore each of the facilities of Andaz Amsterdam though it sure has wide selection of services you can take advantage of.

One corner I love most is it library that is located directly after the lobby. The location is then giving a nice observation area in the street of Prinsengracht (Prince’s Canal).

Grab a book or play some board games as you sip a cup of tea or coffee in the afternoon.

Andaz Amsterdam also offers body relaxation after a city exploration through its Spa that offers the following features:

  • A large variety of treatments and massages;
  • Wellness area featuring a sauna, solarium, rain showers, relaxation area and changing rooms with lockers;
  • Two treatment rooms;
  • Luxury hotel amenities, such as towels, plush bathrobes, slippers and Zenology products; and
  • Gym with Life Fitness cardio equipment, including upright bikes, cross trainers, tread mills, free weights and a stretching area.

You can surely say that you’re in Amsterdam if Tulips are around you. Andaz Amsterdam gives a better way of presenting these charming flowers through their snug and elegant chairs.

For a lush of green experience, visit the Garden at the hotel which can be accessed close to Bluespoon restaurant.

For the breakfast buffet, expect nothing but great local and international dishes which are perfect to make you full and ready for an exciting city tour ahead.Monkey Dividers

 

PEOPLE

I am impressed how the people look very welcoming due to the fine arrangement of the reception area. However, the whole set up of relax and luxury could easily be diminished by how hectic the staff look like.

The room was not ready upon arrival. I was willing to wait as it’s not yet the official time for check-in. Hours had passed and even later than it supposed to be, I heard no information or update from the staff who welcomed me. For about four hours of sitting at the lobby, I have observed how the number of guests waiting increased and how the people from the hotel got busier.

Andaz Amsterdam has been working on this ‘issue’ as it said on the complaints online. I was well accompanied, however by very diverting staff from the lobby until the room.

The staff in the restaurant where the breakfast is served were also welcoming and assured how each guest can find their place.

Overall, it’s hard to give the whole service of the people for a night of stay so what I have shared are all based on my specific short experiences.
