“Great Value and fun but careful food, bit pricy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is the perfect location for anyone that wants Amsterdam but doesnt want to pay the inner canal prices. You dont have to sacrifice comfort and the pod-like rooms give it a fun feeling.

The remote control for the room, lights, shades and TV could use a 4 hour instructional course but adds to the experience.

Love the quick check in system and the staff were more than helpful. Its right on the light rail line so no need for taxis (before midnight) but it will take 10-20 to get all the way to the train station. However there is another train station just down the street and you may be able to get a lot of the same routes out of there instead of the Central Station.

only complaint would be the price of the food downstairs. This may be more of a product of Amsterdam and Europe in general than anything but be wary that coming back to the hotel drunk or otherwise decision impaired will result in a pretty hefty tag.

Room Tip: they're all the same!

Excellent hotel that I would recommend highly. The only thing I can critisise was that the rooms didn't have a kettle. Other than that, perfect.

I have stayed in this hotel for 1 night. The rooms are not that big, and the design of the rooms is to say... a bit strange. The shower is in the middle of the room, the toilet is in a corner.The doors closing around the toilet/shower are made of glass. If you are travelling together there is no way to shower privately or go the bathroom without the other person hearing everything! Stay here when you're travelling alone, or when you already know everything about each other ;)
The location is great, close to the train and metrostation, close to RAI conference center but also close to the city center and Schiphol airport. Personnel was very nice, but most of them didn't speak Dutch.

Stayed for 5 days during a conference at RAI and everything was great.
What is good to be said about this hotel has already been mentioned in the previous reviews: modern, great staff, free wifi etc.

The privacy in the room is quite low, so it is advisable that if you share the room with a companion, you know each other very good (bathroom and shower can be seen in the attached pictures).

The RAI is a 10 minutes walk through a park - therefore the trip before and after RAI activities is just relaxing.

If you go to the hotel from Schiphol airport and take train, please note that even if Amsterdam Zuid is the next station not all the trains pass by it (I've taken a train going to Amsterdam Centraal wrongly assuming that I'll reach Zuid) - just pay attention.

I chose this hotel because I had meetings in Amsterdam Zuid. The hotel is perfectly located for anyone having meetings in the business area, you can get to/from the airport in about 15min, the basic services work incl great sleep and the area is splendid for a morning jog of any distance.

The retro futuristic design of the hotel is interesting and, to some, an attraction in itself. The rooms kind of reminded me of Bruce Willis' apartment in the Fifth Element, incl shower in a tube. Movies and other entertainment in the room/ tv are free of charge and the remote doubles as a mood control. The common areas have apple computers and lounges with furniture that you would pick for a modern but unsurprising look.

On the downside, this is probably a single traveler hotel only unless you are very comfortable with the person you are traveling with. The toilet and shower are situated in the middle of the room but can be closed off by a semitransparent glass tube. Very space efficient but sounds and smells are shared and too some degree sight. That works for some but obviously not for all. If you want to test a fresh relationship, this hotel may be a good place.

The breakfast was disappointing. I could have missed it but I couldnt find any cereals and the only eggs available were boiled rock solid and fridge cold. It s not a deal breaker at this budget (breakfast is extra 14euro) but it seems as if at least the cereals would be a cheap remedy.

Room Tip: As far as I could understand, the rooms are identical.

The hotel is situated a bit outside city centre; but public transport is excellent. The hotel offers very functional, although a bit small, rooms, free WiFi, free movies and free calls to Europe, both mobile and land line numbers.

A most curteous and modern/yong staff with a good eye for detail.

Very reasonable prices - very nice sushi at the 24/7 bar/cafe in the foyer.

Free internet computers.
