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.

If you come to Amsterdam, and want to step off the train (Amsterdam Central) and check right into a hotel and then enjoy the city, This is the perfect place. If you want big rooms, nicely remodeled, overpriced in hotel restaurants and rate-fixing, Go else-where ( Like the Two hotels Next Door, ART and Park) My logic is simply this:... More

Si bien no es un hotel barato, en Amsterdam ninguno lo es! Las habitaciones eran espaciosas (triples) y el personal atento. Desayuno normal. concepto muy particular. Las habitaciones muy limpias, lo cual se agradece especialmente en el baño. Las alfombras las aspiraban todos los días y nos consta! La ubicación es realmente excelente, frente a la Terminal de trenes y... More

The A-Train is directly across the street from the central train station. No taxi required. The rooms are very basic but the location and great breakfast make for good value. I you like trains, this place is for you. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

The hotel its very close to the Central Station however, the beds are the worst I have ever slept in my life considering the price of one night is very high. I recommend you to look to a different place around

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The A-Train Hotel is a unique 3 star hotel with a train-theme. It is ideally located in front of the Central (Railway) Station, right in the beating heart of Amsterdam. Shopping areas, tourist attractions, pubs, restaurants, theaters, are all within walking distance. All 34 rooms are comfortably furnished and have modern bathrooms with a hair-drier and are equipped with radio, satellite TV with pay TV, safe, work desk, direct-dial telephone with wake-up system and WIFI. The hotel has a lift, a luggage store room and 24 hours check in. An easy chair, coffee and tea making facilities, fridge and a great view off the Central Station are the extras in our 4 excellent 'First class rooms', also very suitable for business guests. For special occasions we have the 'Old Dutch Suite' with a small private garden/patio. Furthermore smoking and non-smoking rooms and 2 excellent family rooms. No two rooms are alike in our surprising train-themed hotel! All major public transport lines operate from the Central Station, only 15-20 minutes from Schiphol Airport, RAI and WTC. There is an (expensive) underground public parking opposite the A-Train Hotel. Cheap parking, from €10,- per 24 hours at 5 minutes walk from the hotel.. The A-Train Hotel is a cozy hotel, run by Jos and Erika Heijnsdijk and manager Ali Hassan and will be a comfortable place to stay during your tourist or business visit and will make you feel like "Home away from Home". We aim to please with an informal atmosphere and are looking forward to see you soon in our hotel. ... more   less
