We had a great stay at the A Train. Great location, with a nice clean & quiet room. The staff were more than eager to assist us with any questions we had. I will stay there, on my next visit. Victoria B.C. Canada.

Never mind the Amsterdam diamonds - the A-Train Hotel is a little diamond in itself. Having read reviews about the hotel before we travelled (indeed was swayed by them when booking) we were delighted with what we found when we got there. Within a stones throw of Central Station it couldn't have been easier to get there from the Airport... More

Stayed at the A-Train for 1 night in the 4 bed room as I had my 2 children and mother with me. The kids loved their mezzanine floor room and the toy box with various toys. The stairs to this room are extremely steep (more like a ladder) but there is a gate at the top of the stairs. Beware... More

Just came back from a two night stay at the A-Train hotel and only have one criticism with this quaint little centrally located B&B. I was reluctant to book it at first, but was swayed by the price. The fact that they insist you turn in your key each time you leave the hotel (and pay upfront) gives you that... More

Management response:

Dear (ex)guest, Although you never stay in the same hotel twice, herewith some remarks. We of course trust our guests, but this trust was betrayed too much. After reopening in 2003 three(!) rooms walked out through the emergency exit, without paying, in the first week! Since then everyone has to pay in advance, we had no choice. The one and... More

We stayed for four nights at the beginning of February and were delighted with this hotel. Location is great just a couple of minutes walk from Central Station. We found the staff extremely helpful and although our room was small and a little chilly it was clean and adequate with a great wet room type bathroom. Breakfast pretty good and... More

I have just returned from a stay in the A-train Hotel, Amsterdam, having read the reviews on TripAdvisor. I agree with a lot that has been said regarding the convenience of the location. It really could not be better. Our room was small, quiet, clean and warm and the TV had a nice range of free channels including BBC. The... More

We just got back from a weekend in Amsterdam and since I had used TripAdvisor to determine which hotel to stay at, I wanted to add my 2 cents. The A Train hotel had great reviews and offered the best deal for us; it was also one of the few hotels in the city where a room for 4 people... More

We flew from US to Amsterdam, with one night planned in Amsterdam. We chose the A-Train hotel based on price, amenities and location. You cannot beat the location if you are on the train the next day, or if you are going to take a lot of day trips using the train or bus system. The location is close to... More
