Lovely stay at the A train. Location was perfect as we arrived by train. The staff were so friendly -we arrived early and we were offered coffee and were able to sit in the lounge and find our bearings. Breakfast was great and we loved the train theme. We had as big room with 2 floors and the children appreciated... More

Within 2 minutes walk of the Amsterdam central Station, this hotel is ideal if traveling by train. Also handy to the "Red Light District" and many top attractions. Rooms were clean and comfortable, though as with many European hotels, the lack of air conditioning in the 30 c temperatures was a slight inconvenience. Staff were friendly and helpful. All in...

A delightful place to stay in the hub of the city. Nearby the cool Haarlemmerstraat, and right opposite Central station. My room didn't have much to do with trains, only a nice picture of one. But I slept very well on a comfortable bed, shower was great, and whole place was very clean. The wonderful breakfast area is lovely especially... More

I booked this hotel for the price and the location. It was close to the train station. The staff was very friendly and helpful with tours and room needs. The room was small but some what comfortable. It happened to be very hot and the rooms window was a push out window so no air circulated in the room it... More

The A-Train is located across the street from the main train station. It's also a few blocks from the Red Light District and a major shopping area. It's not a 5 or even 4 star hotel but I couldn't recommend it more highly. The front deck person Levi was great! The room was clean and spacious. The restaurant had great... More

I spent 6 days in this hotel with my friends. The room was clean (in particular there wasn't the moquette) and the staff was very kind. Breakfast, although it was not excellent, was quite good. If I come back to Amsterdam, I will come here!

I was a little worried about going to this hotel after reading the reviews beforehand. However it isn't that bad. The staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed in room a103 which was a satisfactory room. The only problem I had was the pillow. It was so big I actually slept without a pillow for my whole stay. The shower... More

I booked this hotel for the close proximity to the train station as i travel with loads of work luggage . The staff is friendly with free wifi & breakfast. Rooms are good & the price is reasonable. good hotel for your short trips.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
