Arrived on a Saturday morning, thought I would drop bag off and come back to book in, but room ready no issues booking in front desk very good, room was more than adequate for the three nights and location perfect. continental breakfast just what it says on the box. Short walk to Dam square and most of central Amsterdam.

Had a nice (but small) double room on the 4th floor. Room was very hot and opening the windows didn't help even though the temperature outside was not excessive. Room was at the back so not too noisy, but not a great night of sleep. Breakfast was ok, a boiled egg and toast was the most substantial food. Staff friendly... More

You should stay at this hotel, if and only if you need an exceptional location. Breakfast is too limited, rooms are from 70's. The best thing about the hotel, however, the lady serving in the breakfast room. She made our day :) with her great smile.

A sweet little hotel right next to Amsterdam Central Station. It is just 5 minutes walk from station offering great connectivity to entire city by public transport. Nice concept, all over in reception and breakfast area you will find history and train souvenirs from the world. I was very happy to see photos of Indian Trains, had never expected them... More

Thank you for your kind review. Two remarks: 1) We have two buildings one from 1820 and the other one from late 1600, that is way some of the rooms are relatively small. Drastic changes, as replacing walls, are not allowed by the "Department of the Environment Historic Buildings Bureau". 2) We have 75 free TV channels and an extra... More

This cute little hotel was very close to the train station - literally opposite which was fantastic. Checked in with a lovely friendly fellow and the following staff were all as helpful and friendly. The decor was interesting - literally trains everywhere, which I thought was cool but I can understand some might find it strange. The room was very... More

Glad you were pleased with the AMAZING A-Train hotel. Two remarks: 1) this is what we always send if a double bed is requested, "NOTE: A double bed cannot be guaranteed, it may consist of two single beds, if possible, pushed together. All double rooms are non-smoking." Unfortunatley not all booking agency's let us know. 2) As you know Amsterdam... More

Excellent from the moment my wife and I arrived. The hotel is central to everything that is Amsterdam. We had a double room on the first floor. Nothing a problem for the staff. Ali the manager goes out of his way to help. Even offered to take us for a curry. If you want to pay average for Amsterdam and... More

A-train is a nice little hotel with a great location just across from Central Station. I had a single room and I have had a bigger room on a cruise ship but I was only there for a comfortable place to sleep and take a shower. You don't go to Amsterdam to stay in the room. Positives: Everything was clean,... More
