The InterContinental Amstel is a haven of style and elegance, overlooking the Amstel River. If it’s five-star treatment you’re after, look no further. This hotel is like a river-front palace, welcoming guests with a grand lobby, complete with chandeliers and an eager concierge service. A luxurious indoor swimming pool (no kidney-shaped plunge pools here), sauna, Turkish baths, and a well-equipped fitness center offer total relaxation after a day out. If you have adventurous eaters in tow, take advantage of the Michelin-starred restaurant on-site, La Rive. But picky eaters aren’t well catered for, as even the Brasserie and Lounge have very limited menus for more gourmet tastebuds. The InterContinental Amstel is so deluxe, parents can take advantage of a packing and unpacking service.

At check-in, there was only one of service staff at the counter, and she was talking on the phone. I just stood there waiting for her to finish talking.
The breakfast service staff is not enough. Everyone is very busy. It is difficult to find a waiter to service. After I finish breakfast , I had to proactively ask for the bill. After signing the bill, I can't find the waiter.
At the time of check-out, the bill was
automatically deducted from my credit card, but I was not asked if I would use Euro or Taiwan Dollar . The counter used DCC with a Taiwanese currency deduction, which made me pay more.
