8.2
  • (Families with young children)
  • + We stayed in a large, spacious room with 2 extra beds for the children. The room was clean and the same was true for the bathroom.
  • Breakfast was OK, but we did not like the breakfast room in terms of interior design - it was too dark (especially the ceiling). The location is quite distant from the city center, hence you need to take public transport to reach the city center. But public transport is nicely arranged in Amsterdam, hence this is only a minor issue.

Highly recommended
  • + The staff were nice and helpful, the room was very spacious and clean. Free wifi is a big plus. Breakfast was great, too. Very wide variety.
  • A bit hard to get to from the airport, if you re not local. We got helped by a nice local, which was lovely.
  • * my tip Get the map of the area from the reception. It helps a lot. Don t miss out on the breakfast.
9.0
  • (Travelling alone)
Great hotel to shed pounds by walking the city.
  • + Very comfortable and clean rooms at a good price.
  • The service was overall good but at times the responses to questions were short and unhelpful. The hotel was in good location but, the service was not helpful in answering which trams to take to get around the city.
  • * my tip Buy a 48 hour tram pass and understand that the 14 Tram does not take you into the center of the city instead get off the 14 at Marnixstraat and walk to the 1 or 2 Tram.
3.2
  • (Families with older children)
Amsterdam Hotel
  • + Easy to get into the city centre. Clean. We received a good offer on room rates on the internet which caused us to choose this hotel. No problem with service - quick check in and out, cleaning staff friendly and polite.
  • We didn't try the breakfast, but went out to the city so can't comment. TV in room 208 didn't work.
  • * my tip Long stay car park next door is convenient to leave car all day £12 euro p day. Check your routes into the city on the tram - No 14 is the best and is only a walk across the Bos en Lommer Plein.

  • (Travelling alone)
This is a NOT 4-star hotel!!!
  • + Standard room is quite big, which is exception for Holland. Breakfast is tasty and there is a big choice of dishes(hot and cold). Beds are very comfortable
  • Room is not maintained at all. walls were dirty. although it is a 4-star hotel, service is not present...to take iron board you should go to the reception, take it by yourself and pay deposit... Housekeeping staff opens your room in the morning, though there is a sign "do not disturb"... Location is 15 minutes by tram
  • * my tip There are not much restaurants and bars in the neighborhood, so make sure you eat somewhere before coming to the hotel. Because restaurant works 3 hours per day and menu is not very broad...

  • (Friends)
A gem of a place within striking distance of the city centre!
  • + Great near city location. Excellent transportation links. Combined with the adjacent car park deal, the convenience and low public transport price is truly excellent. Room was comfortable and spacious. Bed just right for me and my partner.
  • Shower hot water could vary from scalding hot to ice cold. Be careful! Buffet breakfast rather high priced. No mini bar provided.
  • * my tip Several satisfactory restaurants close by. Adjacent supermarkets stock a good range of snack food...

  • (Friends)
Use for sleep not for luxary
  • + easy to get around since it was located right by a highway and the train and bus station!
  • Had a funny smell in the lobby and staff seemed a bit rude at times. was over charged 2x ,but it was resolved eventually., room services was not as i expected. i prefered breakfast like eggs and bacon , but instead received cereal an egg and sandwich meat and bread
  • * my tip use hotel for sleeping

Comfortable hotel, Excellent service
  • + The hotel was clean, comfortable and professional. The staff were very polite and helpful. All issues were dealt with very quickly. The best part was a room upgrade to a better and bigger room because of an issue with the bathroom in our first room.
  • The main minus point was a problem with our bathroom on the first night. There was a leak from the shower tray after it was dealt with after not draining properly. This made the bathroom smell and subsquently the whole room. This was dealt with very quickly though and we were upgraded to a better room.

Great hotel but chaotic checking in large group booked under one name
  • + Nice hot deal (assuming you get the twin room you booked and not a double), good connection to city and parking
  • Complete chaos checking in, got given keys to 4 different rooms, 3 of which were occupied. Also, when booking, not clear how to choose twin or double room. When asking the front desk about 24 hour parking, no mention of complementary tram/bus ticket per 24 hours parked.

I will stay in this hotel only if I not need car
  • + It is a good hotel for business trip and meetings.
  • The hotel offer free internet but it is not true, because they not allowed to me to download my e-mail using outlook in my laptop. As a route hotel they have to include the parking in the rate because this is not a centric hotel. They not allowed to me to use my cardphone from the hotel.

Better than I expected considering its location
  • + Comparatively cheap considering the "conference" price hike in the city. Easy & quick tram ride into the city. Room was clean and functional. Staff were friendly and helpful.
  • Needs a taxi ride to get to the RAI exhibition centre 29 Euro each way.
7.0
  • (Older couples)
  • + The hotel reception staff were very helpful, knowledgeable and informative.
  • Before our arrival I sent an e mail using the log in service seeking details of how to get to the hotel using public transport. This e mail was not replied to. You will appreictae this was not very helpful to us and meant we had to use a taxi instead of a local bus or tram.

The worst stay ever
  • No airconditioning it wasn't working. Not enough water coming from the baisin. No internet.They had a problem they couldnt fix. The worst area to stay for Holidays.To many muslems ,gangs we had to return at the Hotel early because they do call you names ask for cigarettes and if you just ignore them they swear at you.It was the worst stay I had.A Dutch friend of mine told me that the Hotel's location is in one of the worst areas in Amsterdam.Wished I knew it before I booked.

The obstruction in the room
  • + Clean. Good breakfast.
  • The room had a huge pillar in the middle, making it impossible to sit by the window and see the tv or talk to someone else in the room. Also difficult to navigate in the dark! Are those who book on the internet given sub standard rooms?

Great place, fantastic price
  • + They gave us a much bigger room for our first stay for the same price (MUCH bigger) which was really fun. We ended up staying an extra night than planned and were in a regular sized room and it was still great. Good people, nice place.
  • mainly the location, which we knew ahead of time. it took forever to get to the center of amsterdam from the hotel, but it was extremely easy by the tram which was right across from the hotel and goes all of the city.

Had a great stay
  • + Having the Park and Ride immediately next to the hotel is nice. Also having the AH grocery store around the corner is a plus for getting water for the ride home. The room was perfect for 3 of us, very clean, nice big windows and comfy beds. The Tram sys was easy to learn and it only takes one tram to get you to the center. The staff were very helpful in explaining it to us. I would definetly stay there again.
  • The location is out of the center, but we knew that when we booked.

Good quality with a personal touch
  • + Hotel Manager Martin van Noord was very welcoming and accommodating - he opened the downstairs bar when the upstairs had closed and arranged best location for our dinner table. Would definitely recommend to colleagues staying in Amsterdam.
