The location is hopelessly suburban with other skyscrapers (and Amsterdam Arena) in sight. The train/metro station is not as nearby as you would wish and this hotel therefore serves those with business in the area better than e.g. tourists. It is a huge hotel, but the Express side of it is very modern and nice looking and the rooms are... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor! I am happy to read that you liked our spacious rooms. In the rooms we offer two kinds of pillows; firm and soft and this is indicated with a label. Maybe the labels weren’t attached to the pillows and I apologize for the fact that you couldn’t notice the difference. Our... More

We arrived a little early to check in but the young lady on reception ensured we had our room within 30 minutes. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms were cleaned everyday and nothing was too much trouble from all the staff on reception. From advising on city tours to getting around on the Metro and trams, all the girls... More

This hotel is situated near Amsterdam Arena. A railway and Metro station is close to the hotel. 15 min to Amsterdam Centraal. Unless you have special reasons to stay here, the surrounding is boring and not much to do/see. Hotel is new and fresh, good room with hard beds. Ordinary room size. Floor one is a combined breakfast, food and... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor! The two hotels Holiday Inn and the Holiday Inn Express share one building and I have the impression that you have stayed in the Holiday Inn and you wrote the review on the Holiday Inn Express section of TripAdvisor.

I have stayed in the HIX Arena Towers a couple of times, but I haven't been so happy with the hotel. Positive things first: Friendly personal, good location for Amsterdam Zuid-Oost business trips, perfect train connection to the city center, Utrecht and Schiphol is only 2 stops away with NS. I was also lucky with the room location so no... More

I spent three days staying at the hotel during a business trip. The hotel is situation outside of the city centre but very close to many businesses and 30 minutes from the airport. It will therefore appeal to corporate customers or tourists who don't mind being outside of the city centre. The hotel is extremely new. The rooms are a... More

The Holiday Inn Express is a budget-style Holiday inn. Rooms are smaller. Ours was a standard one, and it does feel small, amenities are basic (shower and toilet in one cramp place). At least you can tell your friends "We were at the Holiday Inn". Apart from that, there isn't much to differentiate that hotel from other low-cost alternatives. At... More
