“Great staff and great rooms!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

This is a really great hotel for the price. I was with my family on a trip to Amsterdam and we choose this hotel because of all the great reviews. We arrivied before the check-in time but the staff allowed us to check in. We were five so we had to book 2 rooms, one for two people and one for three. The room for three is huge! There is 1 bed, and a sofa bed. There is a tv and a minibar with cost money so we didn't use that. The breakfast there is also very expensive so it is a good idea to eat somewhere else. The rooms were clean and everything was great. The hotel is 15-20 minutes away from the city. The tram 1 and 17 takes you to the centrum. We really enjoyed our stay at Westcord Hotel and will choose next time we visit Amsterdam!

I had a great experience staying in the Westcord Fashion Hotel.
The hotel is new, modern; the room is spacious and clean; the staff are very friendly and helpful!
The only downside is the location, takes about 20 mintues by tram to go to the town centre, however,the tram station is within walking distance.
Over all, a very good money for value!
Strongly recommend!

Well, what can I say, Monday morning 6th August arrive at airport for a 4 night (5 day) stay in Amsterdam. Took the train one stop to Lelylaan and then a 5 minute walk to the Westcord Fashion Hotel. Made very welcome at reception and was extremely pleased to have room already available despite the early arrival. Armed with information sheets and local map we headed off to our room (6th floor). The room overlooked the gardens (rather than the road) and, although we were close to the lift, it was extremely quiet. The room was very clean. As a married couple we had no problems with the see-thru shower/bathroom door, but can appreciate this may be a problem for others. Lovely walk-in shower and bath with a separate toilet. Was surprised to see that an iron and ironing board were also provided together with the usual toiletries, tea/coffee making facilities, safe and an extremely large widescreen tv. Luckily we had breakfast included (usual cost Euros 18 per person), and, because we had missed breakfast on the Monday morning, we were presented with a discount meal voucher to use in the restaurant for dinner. Breakfast was plentiful, and always replenished so we never missed out on anything or had to wait around. We did not have lunch/dinner in the restaurant but we did visit the Skyy bar which was very relaxing with lovely views. We used the swimming pool which was never crowded and the towels are provided free of charge. We did not have lunch/dinner in the rest We purchased a 5 day tram pass which was excellent value as the hotel is situated outside of Leidseplein or the Central, and took either the No. 1 of 17 from Surinamplein (5 min walk from the hotel and much easier than the tram stop recommended on the hotel information sheet). For Anne Frank House you do need to get the 17. Hopping on and off the trams was a doddle even for middle agers like us (in our 50's). Vondelpark is about 10 mins walk away and is wonderful for just walking/sitting watching the world go by. You can also cycle thru to Leidseplein with the locals. The staff at the hotel were all extremely polite and nothing was too much trouble for them, they even looked after our bags on departure as our flight was not until later in the day. Would definitely stay here again. The only downside to our entire stay was on the return home, the information centre at Lelyaan St did not sell train tickets and would also not give us change for the ticket machine (as it does not take notes), tried using a credit card but this did not work, eventually went outside, waited for a taxi and got some change. Ensure you have plenty of change for ticket machines. Loved Amsterdam, the people and especially the hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floor the better and overlook garden rather than street.

Arrived here on the 6th of August after arriving from the airport early in the morning, happy to find our room was ready early! Check in girl was a little shy but maybe because I was tired she seemed abit off! Our room was lovely and clean apart from a few scuff marks! Was given a info sheet and a map which was handy! Reception also sold tram passes which was very handy! Top tip exit the reception and turn right down towards surinamplein much more straight forward than the stop they suggest! Also don't bother getting a tram from lelylaan it's a nice 5 min walk to the hotel! Lovely hotel and base to explore the city! Right near vondelpark and good connections to the airport! Would highly reccomend

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.
