the japanese restaurant is not as so good as recommanded by michelin. there are other japanese restaurant at Geneva much more better than the one in this hotel
not for me
to many rules for my liking
Beautifully appointed hotel with great service - but a bit pricey!
very good service - felt well looked after - nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff we came into contact with. Particularly liked the ambience and the staff in the cocktail bar on the 23rd floor
very expensive in the bars and restaurants in the hotel - nearly 30 euros for a continental breakfast is a little excessive - however well presented it might have been!
A superior hotel
An unforgettable experience
Great pool in the heart of amsterdam
Very nice hotel but too expensive.
High quality hotel, very friendly and helpful staff.
Very expensive to stay in hotel, breakfast and restaurants too expensive. Have to pay €15 for use of health and fitness facilities. Location around 15 - 20 minutes by tram to Amsterdam central.
A luxurious and pampering experience
The Ocura Has Style and Terrific Service
This was our first stay in an Ocura Hotel. It is beautifully designed and has very comfortable beds and other features as well as a wonderful view of your city. The service was impeccable. We really appreciated that there wwere both a stand-up shower and bathtub.
We were overwhelmed by the state of the art technology as we had to adjust to how to adjust to openings curtains and lighting, which was not explained to us when we entered the room. I was also surprised that there were extra charges for the swimming pool as in every luxury hotel I have stayed in world wide included this as part of room charges.
Pleasent stay at Okura
quality of rooms
quality of restaurants
front desk officers (esp. Miss Ettel)
location near to Rai but isolated
supervisor reception very arrogant.
Just far too expensive for Breakfast, Broadband, the gym
The bed sheet can be a little more clearner as I found some hair on the sheet that does not belong to me. Also, it does not make sense for you to charge for the workout/exercise room. This is non business sense for you to charge us for such a service
Mrs M Baker
Staff very helpfull and friendly.
Japanese food restaurant was excellent, but so it should be at those prices.
5 hours before our arrival we were informed by Okura that they were overbooked and that our first night was to be spent in Hotel LeEurope in- that was totally unimpressive and disruptive for our trip.
Room service food was absolutely awful. The breakfast was unedible and the sandwiches not much better and it was not cheap. It seems that all efforts for good food has been given to the Japanese part of the hotel which is a great shame.
There are too much fiddely technolgy in the room.
It would be a great plus if there were tea & coffee making facilities in the room.
Ik vind het te gek voor woorden, dat als ik daar voor 300 euro eet en voor ruim 200 euro slaap dan ook nog 35 euro moet betalen omdat ik in een lege parkeergarage sta. Zo geweldig is het nu ook weer niet.
Absolutely love this hotel. Very luxury hotel, excellent service. Almost didn't want to check out. ;-) And I travel quite some.
The roomservice, breakfast prices and all other prices when in the hotel are exactly double the price of other five star hotels. This was a bit disappointing.
Mrs Grania Dean
love the area and on our previous visit found ALL the staff helpful, friendly and polite
The furniture in the room was in dire need of re-staining plus the room was quite dusty, we also found an abandoned book beside the bedside table.We were told our details had been lost since our previous visit so we would have to pay for the pool,but as we had joined on our previous visit various calls to Tokyo went through apparently, to find our details to no avail. The following morning, note under the door, 8.43am saying reception needed to speak to me. Misguidedly, I assumed our details had been found so we could use the rather lovely facilities. But no.We arrived at reception to a female reception person telling me, that NO our details had not been found. Her manner was, to say the least,accusatory. I assured her I was perfectly capable of remembering where I stayed for such an auspicious occasion as was my 40th birthday.The evening before we left, I spoke to another staff member who was extremely helpful and resolved the situation. Unfortunately, this incident coloured our stay.
excellent location and lovely views over city duting day and night. Very friendly staff and very attentive
Probelsm with room key in lift and room at times - nothing serious
Need to book restaurants well in advance - otherwise you may be disappointed.
I would like to point out that I stayed in the Hilton hotel since there was no place available in the OKURA hotel
very good restaurants
1)Our bath were no cleaned very well.
2)Due to the hotel class(five stars)the fitness centre should be given for free to the hotel guests (as Ramada for example does)
(Families with young children)
Small size of the room in relation with price.
Location: Out of the Centrum of Amsterdam.
