This is the first time I've reviewed a hotel on day 2 of a 7-day stay. Based on the other reviews, I was expecting more. The hotel is new and close to the Metro, grocery and drug stores - just steps away. The wifi is free, which is great. The people are friendly and helpful, but I have to give... More

Stayed in this new and modern hotel in October 2012. It is about a half hour trip from airport via public transport. Tram/Metro stop is right next to hotel across the road.

Hello I stayed at this hotel with my husband and daughter from 19th - 22nd October. The hotel is very new, rooms are slightly larger than other Holiday Inn Express hotels. Bathroom and shower also a good size. The staff were lovely and nothing was any bother. Fire alarm on Sunday morning due to someone trying to toast a sandwich... More

The hotel opened her doors only 4 months ago, so everything is brand new and clean. Apparently they have slightly changed the Holiday Inn Express concept a bit, because the rooms are a little bigger, a little fancier and the bathroom most certainly is much better than you typically will find in HI Express hotels. The staff was exceptionally friendly... More

We stayed here for the Amsterdam Marathon, from 20/10/12 to 23/10/12 and all the staff, and especially Inge, could not be more helpful. The location is perfect, nice and quiet, yet only 100 yards from metro and tram stops, so all the touristy bits are no more than about 15 minutes away. There are also some great shops really nearby... More

Standard Holiday Inn Express. Getting there is easy. Take the train from Schiphol airport to Central Station (about 3 Euro and takes 10-15 minutes). Take the 51 tram from central station and get off at Van Boshuizenstraat (about 10 stops). Alternatively take the train to the RAI Conference centre and then take the 51 tram (4 stops). From Van Boshuizenstraat... More

We stayed here because our daughter is at university nearby, which made it an ideal location for us. It's a very good place to stay if you have car, and parking is free at evenings and weekends. Travelling into the city by public transport is easy, but if your're staying more than a couple of days the journey does start... More

Spring is upon us and so is the new Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam – SouthThe new Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam – South is ideally located near the financial district of Amsterdam, the South Axis. When using tram or bus which stops in front of the hotel, guests are in close reach of all main financial institutes, the VU Medical Center and the RAI Congress Center (all at 5-10 minutes door-to-door travel). The sound proof, well-furnished and spacious rooms offer modern equipment like LCD TVs with satellite, free Wi-Fi, coffee/tea facilities and a walk in shower. On top of all these facilities, our guests are served a complimentary Continental breakfast and also a free daily kosher breakfast is available with no advance reservation required. Next to this the hotel offers special kosher sandwiches. The hotel is located in the Jewish community of Amsterdam and Amstelveen and therefore you will also find many Orthodox Synagogues within walking distance and special Shabbat amenities are available in the hotel.With close proximity of the A10 around Amsterdam, you can easily travel to many main destinations in the Netherlands (Haarlem, The Hague, Utrecht, etc.) and also sightseeing to the most important sites (for instance the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House and the Royal Palace) are in good reach via public transport.
