“Clean, quiet and modern - thoroughly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

If you fancy a well priced, modern hotel that is slightly out of the way and away from the noise this is definately the hotel for you! Stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Is a 5 min walk to the train station (saving around £30 on a taxi), 5 min walk to the trams (no's 1&17) and away from the noise of the centre. Very clean, with excellent food, facilities and and bars. Little pricey on the breakfast but we paid for a 3 day transport ticket that allows you to go anywhere within Amsterdam, and then went into the centre for brunch. Alternatively you can hire a bike and ride through Vondel park to the centre with the locals.
Would definitely stay again if we returned to Amsterdam.

A clean and modern hotel very close to the tram stop and very easy to get to from the airport. (Take the train to Leylaan from platform 3 - around €5.70 return. Leylaan is the first stop and takes about 10 minutes. At Leylaan go down the stairs and catch the tram 1 to Surinamplein, which is the second stop. After the first stop, look out of the right hand windows for some pale blue flags. This is the hotel. Get off at the next stop past the flags, cross the road to the right (unless you want to tackle steps with your luggage!) and head back to the flags, around a 4 minute walk. The tram costs €2.70 for a one hour ticket or €7.20 for 24 hrs and you can use this on the night bus also, although the night bus (after 12.30 a.m.) will drop you a good 20 minute walk from the hotel.)

The hotel is exactly as it is in the photographs. The staff were very polite and helpful, the room was clean and tidy and quiet. There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room, along with an iron and hairdryer, and a vending mini bar. We upgraded to a "Spoil Me" package for €35 as we needed a late checkout, and this included a 3pm checkout, fruit and chocolates in the room every day, luxury toiletries, dressing gowns and flip flops, and two free cocktail vouchers.

Breakfast was buffet style, continental and cooked, which was all nicely laid out and looked appetising.

You can also hire bikes and scooters from the hotel which makes travelling around very easy.

All in all a very nice hotel and the mannequins aren't at all as freaky as they might look in the photos! Would definitely go back to this hotel, (it was cheaper to book the flight and B&B at the hotel through Easyholidays than it was just to book the flight) and stay a bit longer to have a treatment or two at the Spa!

I have just returned from a weekend stay at the Westcord Fashion hotel and thoroughly recommend it.

The rooms were spacious and nicely decorated.

We arrived early in the morning and stopped at the hotel with the intention of just dropping our bags off until we could check but the staff let us check in early and were all extremely friendly and helpful.

The food in the restaurant was really nice and not much more expensive for food and drinks than central amsterdam, The Skyy vodka bar is a must too.

The hotel is quite new, clean and with a good size modern room. I do not know whether we had no neighbours or the walls were thick enough but it was very quiet in our room (i hope it is due to the first reason). In turn, I do not understand the name "fashion hotel" as there is nothing about fashion in this hotel except for mannequins in the main hall - rooms are just normal modern rooms.

I definitely did not like glass door to the bathroom - it was auwful and I do not find it romantic at all. If you want someone to see you taking a shower you just simply take this shower with him/her or leave the door open. I probably do not need to mention that not only couples come to this hotel - also just friends or let's say parents with teen children or whoever else who does not to be seen taking a shower (or shaving legs!) when someone is watching.
Another thing is a toilet which is separate (fortunately with no transparent door...) and there is no handbasin.
There is also a restaurant in the hotel, but the prices are far to high.


about the location of the hotel - it is not in the city center, that is why you get a nice hotel room for the price of dodgy hostel room in the city center, so if you pay half of the price of the hotel in city center, do not be cheeky and do not complain that you have to spend 10minutes on the tram (there are two tram lines every few minutes). It is very easy to find this hotel as you just have to go along the main road - all you need to do is to print a map and note the tram stop - I think that if someone is not able to do this, he/she should stay at home and travel only to a local shop and back.

Upon arrival we immediately could check-in. We booked a family room and got the biggest roof top room with a splendid view over the Amsterdam area! The hotel is very modern with a "lounge" touch we very much liked! Also the rooms were very modern and even the bathroom was great, because you could take a shower while overlooking Amsterdam (there was a window in the wall between the bathroom and the room)! Marvelous!

There was enough parking space in the area to park the car. Next to the hotel there is a tram stop and the tram goes directly to the city center.

The only remark I would like to make, is that we had to climb the stair all the way to the entrance door, while there used to be an entrance door on the main grounds. It is not that handy when you have luggage to carry around, because you have to drag it all the way on those stairs.

But otherwise: wonderful modern hotel. Definitley a winner!

Dear Mich B,

I was delighted to read the review you wrote of your experience in our hotel! We strive to exceed the expectations of our guests, and I am happy to know that in your case we succeeded!

I do apologize for the fact that you had to carry your bags up the stairs. Indeed there is an entrance on the street level down the stairs, from which you can take an elevator to reception.
For security reasons this door can only be opened with a guest keycard, but arriving guests can of course also use it by ringing the doorbell. I will see to it that this is made clearer!

It was a pleasure having you as our guest, and we look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Amsterdam!

Hotel was booked for us by work. We arrived late at night and the staff was helpful and accommodating for our room preferences (including a few switches until we found the perfect rooms). The breakfast was excellent. the hotel bar was nice - though a bit on the pricey side...

I have stayed in this hotel on two separate occasions and I must say it is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The service was professional, the staff were very friendly and welcoming and although the hotel is very popular it never appeared over crowded. The rooms are fantastic and the decor throughout the hotel is awesome. The food is lovely and the sky cocktail bar is a must! I can't wait to visit again!!
