We were 3 sharing a room which was over 2 floors, beds upstairs and bathroom, tv and chairs downstairs. Really friendly staff and free safe storage of your luggage after checking out if you have a few... More

Let me begin by saying that this was my first time in Amsterdam and I was truly blown away by the city itself and how friendly and welcoming almost all of its people were. Sadly enough, those working at this property were not among the vast majority of these people. This hotel claims to be run "family-style" but it felt... More

Very near the central station and short walk to Dam Square and other attractions but just far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle of the inner city streets. Hotel staff were friendly with a laid back but thoroughly professional attitude. Rooms were clean and well equipped and ours had nice large windows with a good view of... More

Had a 2 night stay at the A train and we couldnt find any faults.. stayed in the old dutch suite which had its own little courtyard. Breakfast was included in the price which was basic but good, although more fresh fruit could possibly be on offer. Staff very friendly.. Enjoyed our stay.

We spent two nights a the A-Train hotel and I am very happy with the choice. The room was very comfortable and the use of space was superb. The room was clean and the bed and pillows comfortable. A great addition in my opinion was that the room had radiators so the heating was easily controlled without that awful drying... More

Just got back home from a 7 day trip to Amsterdam with my hubby. My hubby booked 3 days at a hotel near Dam Square for our 20th wedding anniversary - this was a surprise as I had already booked A-Train for my hubby's birthday a couple of days later. The first hotel was awful, noisy dirty and no amenities... More

When we did the reservation I wasn't sure about this hotel, but the reviews and the location doesn't lie. The hotel is basic, but enough to sleep, have breakfast and shower. And the location is perfect! Just five minutes walking everywhere! Good hotel choice.
