“For Business Trip - Not Holiday”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Geared up for business guests.

A LONG way out of the city, requiring you to walk to nearby station and take a tram 30 minutes to reach Dam Square.

Can hold a large number of guests and due to this you will spend a lot of time waiting for and travelling in lifts.

If you are a business traveler and have meetings or conference in amsterdam rai then this hotel is for you. But if you are travelling with family or even with partner..the rooms are very very small and the bed is too small for two people... Hotel staff is friendly n helpful but no room service except food..so u have to rush to the reception for anything you need. Hotel is clean n wifi is very good.

My wife an I stayed for 6 nights at Novotel Amsterdam City Center while she was attending a conference at the nearby Convention Center. It's a good business hotel, nothing special about it. It's location (about 25 minutes to Center but tram) is ideal for people attending business conferences. We haven't eaten there as the price for the breakfast seemed excessive.

I visited Amsterdam due to re-opening of the Rijksmuseum, for one night only. The hotel is on the final stop of the tram, but it is not long way from the city. The concrete house hides standard interiors. Friendly check-in in the evening and rich breakfast in the morning.

This is a hotel close (10min walk) to the RAI conference centre. Given a choice, it would be better to stay in the centre and get a tram to RAI as there is little to recommend this hotel. The staff were helpful on check in but it is a soulless place. My bathroom wasn't clean which was off putting. Bed comfortable and room quiet.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Very comfortable and clean.Stayed in one of the NH hotels beforehand and really noticed extra comfort at this hotel (from duvets/television to hairdryer). Serious breakfasts, personally prefer not to eat huge amounts in morning and is an expense better put towards dinner in town! Tram gets into centre very quickly so it's not too far out (although I suppose if one is out for nightlife it might be more difficult as trams stop at some point). oh, was on fourth floor which had no internet reception in room, and my bed was slightly uneven so if was on right side, facing wall, nearly rolled off!! only negatives!
