This is my 4th business trip in Amsterdam. I always found very difficult to find a nice, clean and affordable hotel there. I had stayed in Best western Leidesplein twice and Hotel Avenue but not really satisfied with their rooms. Finally this time I found Hotel Iron Horse which was beyond my expectations. The room and bathroom were very clean.... More

Nice enough hotel, recently renovated from a few older buildings. Near to Leidseplein, the museums, etc. Unfortunately we were given a basement room: totally underground (very steep stairs to get there), dark, stuffy, minimal aircon, pillar in the middle of the room and smelling a bit dank. So can only recommend if you make sure you get a room above... More

Great location, all attractions within walking distance. Really friendly helpful staff and a couple of supermarkets close by for forgotton items or picnics. Lots of places to eat within a short walk. Room was spacious and clean with a great bathroom. We'll definitely stay again. Bike hire shop was just a couple of doors down.
