“Very nice clean hotel close to the metro....will stay again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

We stayed at the Novotel for two days last June while visiting several countries in Europe. Although the hotel was not near the city center it is near tram #4 which was only a 15 minute ride into the city and a 24 hour pass was only 7.50 euros. Over all the food, rooms and service were very good although the bar and restaurant were just a little pricy. This is a hotel that we will stay at again if we ever return to the beautiful city of Amsterdam but alas there are many countries left on out bucket list.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

I have always stayed in hotels in the city, but as I had an appointment close to the RAI I chose this hotel. The lobby and bar/restaurant appear to have been totally redone. The staff is very friendly, and also at the bar they are simply very helpful and it isn't such a bad place to have a drink. The rooms are very clean, typical Novotel. So it's always the feeling of just not that great, but then again, it is great value for your money, especially if you can stay on the uppor floors where the minibar comes for free, and you have Nespresso machine available. The location is of course largely dependent on where you need to be. For tourists, I wouldn't recommend it. Plenty of other choices in the city, even though you have tram 4 which brings you to the city in less than 10 minutes, or by cab it is a EUR 20 ride, so all very possible after all.

You get what you expect from this Novotel. Its not flashy, or luxury, but its a good, decent, 4 star hotel.

Reception staff were very friendly and helpful (although not too knowledgeable about how to get tickets for Ajax games), the room was neither large nor small, and both the sleeping area and the bathroom were clean and functional.

The hotel is easily accessed from Schiphol, just 10 minutes / 2 stops on the train, and handy for visitint any of the businesses in the area around the Amsterdam ArenA. If you want to do tourist Amsterdam you will probably want to be more central.

One final word for room service - unusually reasonably priced (€10 for a pizza) and very tasty with it.

I am attending a trade show at the RAI.

This is a practical hotel with moderately comfortable but functional rooms. Its close enough to walk to the trade show in 10 minutes and on a brisk february morning.........not sure about in the dead of winter.

Its too fare from the city to call a tourist hotel

Rooms ok but small, as i said functional but "in an economical "way.

I hate the pillows...............I need soft and feather filled ....these are polythene and hard.....not a fan of Novotel bedding at the best of times.

The restaurant area modern with very friendly staff and a reasonable menu....I am fussy and do like to eat well............This was OK. perhaps due to the volume of people the service was a little slow and sometimes the server unresponsive....forgive the first time.

As I always end ........would i come here again........yes........its practical for the location and the trade show visitor.

Value for money.........not this time........as always room rate take a hile at peak trade show times............Euro 219 a night.

Room Tip: ask nicely for an upgrade with F.O.C minibar, internet and TV.....worked for me.

I've spent here a few months in the begining of 2010 when we have a project in Amsterdam. The hotel was a fix point when we booked an other week at the client. After a while the staff was recognizing us even if there are a lot of business traveler who are choosing this hotel. We have tried quite a few other places as well but this was the best choice. It is close to the metro and Rai conference center. The rooms are just perfect. Comfortable and clean. The staff is really for the guest here. They are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant and the bar is also excellent. Highly recommended to everybody, especially business travellers.

We stayed there for a week end in january. Staff very helpful and kind, room were good size, comfy beds, nice open view, clean rooms. Didn't have breakfast there, we found it too expensive. There is a tram next to the hotel that will take you to the center of Amsterdam in 20 minutes, so easy. Overall nice hotel, will go back there.

i really enjoyed the two nights i stayed on this hotel, despite it is not on the city center but in the business area. Very easy to reach by puplick transportation. Just take the tram 4 from central station or dam square and get off at the end of the tram ( last station) you would be then able to see the hotel. You need then to walk for about 300 m. Nice room , clean and spacious. The breakfast was great with variable choices and the Restaurant was huge. There is also a coffee shop inside the hotel. there is gym in the hotel with mulit equipments.
