The hotel was very easy to get to, just over the road from Amsterdam main train station, the reception was manned by friendly staff all the time, but the biggest plus point was the theme and de oration, this wasn't some cut and paste corporate hotel that you can find in any city in any country. It is called the... More

This was my second trip to the A Train and I am very glad I booked to stay there again. The building is a traditional Amsterdam building, so don't expect huge rooms, however, the two rooms I have stayed in were both clean, comfortable and big enough for two adults to stay in comfortably. The hotel could be described as... More

The family room is a great size for the price with a double bed sectioned off and three single beds in an attic. It also had a dining table and a section with a fridge and coffee making facilities. The hotel was clean, offered a decent continental breakfast and is ideally placed to catch the train to the airport. The... More

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 Room was very basic and decor was outdated but perfect for what we needed.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
