Stairs very steep to the bedroom upstairs which is for kids but mine are both adults so this wasn't a problem.The staff were really friendly and I would recommend this hotel for this reason and it was right opposite Central Station.It was expensive in my opion...

Stayed at the hotel purely as it was close to the wedding venue I was in Amsterdam to attend. The hotel itself is, as you can tell by it's name, based on a Train. In fact the interior is entirely set on old train travel concepts. It is quirky and despite being rather old and in need of updating, quite... More

The rooms are very small but the building is around 350 year old. We you sleep you feel it with your whole body:) It is really relaxing to spend a night here. You can also open a window, smoke a little weed and have pleasure sitting and watching the Amsterdam Centraal.

Very pleased that you were impressed with the atmosphere in our hotel. QUOTE: " smoke a little weed"(??!!). A very strange remark, viewing our drugs policy below. PLEASE NOTE: from 01-07-08 all common areas in hotels in the Netherlands are NON-SMOKING! We do still have 8 smoking twins (=2 single beds) available, only for normal tobacco of course! All singles,... More

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights at the start of August with 5 other guests. Room was very basic and decor was outdated but perfect for what we needed. No air conditioning but the hotel provided many fans to cool the room down. Also no wifi, if you require it the hotel do charge a ridiculous amount to have... More

Location is really good. Across the street from the main railway station. Ended up in Amsterdam as a result of being denied boarding on a flight to Dusselforf earlier that morning because our national airline over booked the flight. and chose to go to Amsterdam and get the train the following morning. Room was basic but had all the facilities... More

As a family with young kids this place was such a relief. Superb location opposite train station, very willing and warm staff, breakfast incl, great supermarket 10 metres away, and the family apartment was brilliant. More roomy than what we were expecting, and even had a kid's corner with play kitchen, toy train tracks, books and other toys. Mezzanine floor... More

The location is just perfect as it is in the centre and close to everything which enables you to walk to many locations. Staff was friendly, room was clean and breakfast was good. Very good for the price. I would stay there again.
