This hotel is in a PERFECT location. It is LITERALLY right across the street from Central Station. So if you get off there you don't have to drag your suitcases all over the city. It is just north of some big attractions, red light distrcit just steps away too. The staff was super helpful with everything!! Nice breakfast too which... More

Just arrived back from the A-train hotel and what a great stay we had. Location is perfect, staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly even lending us a travel plug! Breakfast was great just what you need before a day of sightseeing. Bed was one of the comfiest I've had and the view of the station out of our bedroom was... More

It was really convenient and easy to find as soon as we arrived from the train station. We arrived early and the staff couldn't have been more helpful - arranged to store our luggage in a safe place and told that if we popped back in 30 mins our room would be ready! The room was ok - not amazing... More

First of all, it is very very convenient from the Train Station (practically across the street). The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful, making the stay a lot more enjoyable. Yes, I had to pay for the wifi, but I got five days for the price of three! The breakfast was adequate and the breakfast-area was cute! The... More

My friend and I have just returned from a 3 night break at the A-Train hotel. We booked it because it was cheap - the location is fabulous. Just across the road from Central Station, which allows you to take a train from the airport for just 5EUR. Continental breakfast is included - toast, fruit bread, cereal, boiled eggs, coffee,...

The A Train hotel was very local to everything which is a good thing, but as for the staff, they Are very argumentative and one has one rule and another has a different rule. They need to train they're staff on the basics of the hotel. We had a couple of arguments with the hotel staff. Eg, wifi was 5euro... More

The rooms are small, even the big ones, but thats how it is in Amsterdam. Very convenient location, helpful, polite staff. Breakfast absolutely basic. Price a bit high, but again in line with what you expect tp pay there.

Just stayed here for a few days in Amsterdam. Overall the hotel was pretty basic, you get a few channels on the tv, a hairdryer and extra blankets but that's pretty much it that's "extra" however the beds were comfy and we slept reasonably well the time we were there, staff were also friendly at the reception and always had...

A hotel themed on trains... I didn't know what to expect but on arrival, I must say I absolutely loved this odd and quirky theme as it just felt fun and comfortable... I think I actually fell in love with trains a little more thanks to this hotel! The hotel is situated across the road from Centraal Station making it... More

That's just about what describes this hotel. Although for the price you book at, that's what you're gonna get in Amsterdam. Stayed for 3 night in Jan 15, very centrally located. Easy accessibility to the metro, trams and markets. Would have liked a bit more variety in breakfast. Rooms are comfortable but very small. Over and all, if you're looking... More
