Viking pre-cruise stay

May 2022 | WakeboardingMomma

We stayed here for a Viking pre-cruise tour. Nice updated room. Toilet was in a separate room. Safe, Nespresso maker and water in room. Nice size shower! Breakfast was typical for Europe but they would make you eggs on request. Area was quiet and 5 minute walk to some shopping and restaurants. Tram stop was a 4 minute walk. Taxi/Uber to Old Town and downtown was $20 and up depending on time of day. I was disappointed in how far it was but it was quiet at night! All the staff was super helpful and friendly. Everyone I encountered spoke English. I would stay here again but would learn to use the tram to get downtown.

A mixed experience overall.

This was really a mixed bag. On the positive side, the (very expensive) room in which my children and I stayed (the mezzanine studio) was beautiful, there is a good fitness center (but why on earth is there a silent TV on in there?), the swimming pool is nice and it is actually possible to swim in it (but why the supposedly relaxing and actually annoying) ambient music?). Breakfast is what you would expect in a luxury hotel and the person at the desk that I talked to was consistently efficient and helpful. On the negative side, however, the location isn’t great: it is 25 minutes away from the museums but the walk is not a pleasant one. The nearest subway stop seems to be 15 minutes away. The furniture in the room doesn’t make sense: the cupboard is ridiculously small, as a result of which you end up having no other option than to keep your suitcase open or leave your stuff all over the place. There is no desk and no chair, which makes working a hassle. On our first day, even though we had been out from 11 to 4 pm, our room was made up at 6:15 pm, at the very moment we needed to access it, as a result of which the making up process was interrupted and never resumed. And they have adults-only hours in the swimming-pool, a fact not visible on their web site, and which might be a real inconvenience if you are travelling with children and have booked tickets for museums during the hours set aside for children… To their credit, when I made clear that I was unhappy about this, they told me the policy would not be enforced. A better option, though, would be not to have this policy or clearly announce it on the web site.

Amazing stay - highly recommend

I have worked in some of the most prestigious hotels in the UK and the Pestana lived up to my high expectations. Staff were friendly and always on hand to help, the room was spacious, clean and modern and the breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend for people visiting Amsterdam, location is quiet yet a walk away from the centre, the spa is calming and relaxing after a day of exploring. Absolutely loved our stay here.
