Room was basic but had all the facilities... More

As a family with young kids this place was such a relief. Superb location opposite train station, very willing and warm staff, breakfast incl, great supermarket 10 metres away, and the family apartment was brilliant. More roomy than what we were expecting, and even had a kid's corner with play kitchen, toy train tracks, books and other toys. Mezzanine floor... More

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.

We decided last minute to stay here closer to the train station and canal area and were so happy with the decision. We could see the hotel from the train station but across a canal so it wasnt too close to be loud. We were able to walk everywhere easily. The room was very nice and clean. The breakfast was... More

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
