Located in the beautiful Overtoom area, this hotel is a great value for new visitors to the city. It is easily accessible by the number 1 tram (which we caught from the Amsterdam Leylaan stop from the train from the airport), and within walking distance to the heart of the city. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and bars nearby,... More

Very good hotel in an excellent location. Close to restaurants, shops, and museums. Renovated room. Reception personnel at the front desk were very helpful. Great value for your money. Would come back again.

Iron Horse Hotel is an excellent value three star hotel. Reception was efficient and very helpful. The bedroom was a good size. The bathroom was equally well proportioned and with an excellent large shower. Everything you might need was supplied - tv, wifi, soaps, tea/coffee etc etc. The breakfast was plentiful and good value. I'm often in Amsterdam and will... More

Great value hotel. Easy to get to from Airport. Take Bus #197 to Leidsplein Square (5 euros). 5-min walk to Overtoom 33. Close to museums, Vondel Park and public transportation. Updated rooms. Small, tidy and clean. No frills. Good value. Helpful English speaking staff. Good and varied hotel breakfast or use the grocery store 3-doors down (credit card only). Lots... More

We had an amazing stay here. The rooms are very spacious, clean and modern with a nice comfy bed. You could easily access the tram from the hotel and the staff on reception were very happy to give directions and explain where to eat etc. In the lobby you could make free coffee/tea etc. which was brilliant. Great value for... More

Good location and complimentary coffee at reception. Rooms are spacious for Amsterdam but fairy standard and basic - very little atmosphere. Windows cannot open so it is air-conditioning only. Room became quite stuffy. Breakfast reasonably priced but limited selection, e.g. only one type of cheese - and that for the cheese producing country!

This was a very nice option within easy walking distance to the center of Amsterdam. You could enjoy your day and then get away from the gobs of tourists and eat dinner in peace with locals. Lots of services close by including a post office and grocery store. The room was large and clean and the horse decor is wonderful.... More

This is a wonderful hotel. We stayed here for a week at the beginning of July! You can easily take the tram from Central Station and get off in Leidsplein. It is a bit confusing when you get off the tram where to go but you walk towards the Marriott and turn right then you will see the street Overtooms... More

I booked here on Leidseplein for a change and to get away from the loud central areas, populated normally by stoned or drink kids backpacking through Europe. I loved the property. It's a short team ride from Central Station on lines 1,2 or 5. The hotel is modern, clean, good Wifi, sparkling baths, A/C and a very friendly, accommodating staff.... More

Hotel is approx. 6 tram stops from Central Station, within walking distance of Heineken experience and has lots of nice bars and restaurants on its doorstep. You can walk to Dam Square but easier to get the tram. We got a 4 day tram pass for 21 euros each...excellent value for money. Hotel is clean & tidy. Rooms are small... More
