I would like to start by saying that I stayed at the Blue Square Hotel as a leg of a Contiki Tour, so based on previous hotel standards I did not expect much out of this hotel AT ALL! However, it then exceeded my expectations.... in a really good way. My first thought after walking into the reception area was... More

Polite receptionists. Rooms and coletive spaces were pleasant, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a little poor for the price. Little far from the center.

Great hotel, with friendly stuff (spoke to 3 different persons, all were willing to help) Very clean, renovated, very nice style inside. Its close to the supermarket. The only disatvantage is its location. Takes 15-20 minutes to get from the Central Station by bus.

We arrived at blue square with ease. The number 21 bus dropped us off right at the door from Central Station. 2.60 Euro on train. Stop you need is Plein 40 - 45 or the next one. Rooms clean neat and tidy. Little dusty. We opted to not have our room serviced during our stay and there was always fresh... More

We came across this hotel after days of searching the Net and finding negative reviews of every central hotel within our price range and decided to widen our search to outer Amsterdam. We were not all sure we had made the right choice until we arrived. It proved to be a very good choice indeed. Absolutely charming Reception staff who... More

Being a Dutchie living abroad, I like to go shopping in the home country every now and again and for me, the location of the Blue Square hotel is excellent as it is easily accessible by public transport (to/from airport and city) and right next to a shopping centre. This means I can quickly buy the things I need, immediately... More

Inside the hotel is really quite nice, our room was really lovely, spotlessly clean, amazing shower and one of the comfiest hotel beds i have ever slept in! The... More

While the hotel is not bad, the neighborhood it is in is awfull, and certainly NOT a place for families or female guests.

I stayed here with my mom and my Aunt for Spring Break in March of 2009. This hotel was a really nice surprise. The rooms were nice and the bar was great. I would recommend staying here when in Amsterdam.
