Practical information

Situated in a historical building, Amsterdam American Hotel has 175 rooms.  The hotel is located on the Leidseplein, right in the heart of cultural Amsterdam, and is therefore ideal for those taking a weekend out for a city trip to our beautiful capital.  The American Hotel is ideal for a romantic weekend getaway, a relaxing stay with the entire family or for business lodging after a meeting.

Be aware: due to our renovation as of January 6th 2020 both the hotel and Café Americain are temporarily not wheelchair-accessible.

The American Hotel is located in the heart of Amsterdam, so finding a parking space on Leidsekade, or along the canal, can be quite difficult. Therefore, we recommend parking in the Byzantium parking garage. It is located approximately 200 metres from the hotel. Parking rates at this garage are €2 per 20 minutes up to a max. of €68 per day.
