Amsterdam American Hotel has a great location in the heart of Amsterdam and is easily reached from large cities such as Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. Right in front of the hotel is a tram and bus stop, and a boarding point for boat tours of the canals is located just next to the hotel. You step out our front door and you are standing in the heart of Amsterdam's cultural life. 


Parking is possible on Leidsekade but take into account that it is often nearly impossible to find a parking space along the canal. In fact, the entire city centre is extremely busy. That is why we recommend parking in the Q-Park Byzantium. This parking garage is just 200 metres walking distance from the hotel. Rates there are €2 per 20 minutes with a maximum of €68 per day. 

Public transport

Are you coming from Amsterdam Central Station? Then take tram 2, 11 or 12 to the 'Leidseplein' stop, which is located at our front door. From Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, you take bus 397 and get off at the Stadhouderskade stop, which is about 75 metres from the hotel. 


From the A10 ring road, take exit S106 towards the Centrum, at the roundabout (Surinameplein) take the first exit and continue on the S106 for approximately 1.5 km until you reach the end of Overtoom. At the end of Overtoom, turn left onto the Nassaukade and then turn right at the next traffic light. Turn right onto Marnixstraat and then take the first right after the bridge onto Leidsekade.  The hotel is on the left side of the street. 

Taxi from Schiphol Airport

The average taxi fare from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to our hotel is €55. Upon your request, we can arrange airport pick-up service for you.
