“Great hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Stayed over Xmas 13. What a fantastic hotel, very modern,very clean.staff very helpful and Johnny is very very helpful.the skyy bar has fantastic views and ambience. Very romantic setting for a chic bar. The room we had,220 was very nice, clean and fresh, although we didn't like the plasticky pillow cases, but we loved the shower! We didn't hear anything between walls on the rooms, the bed was very cozy and warm, fresh towels everyday.The tram service is 5 minute walk away number 1 or 17 take you to city centre hassle free. I would highly recommend this hotel and put it on par with the hilton in San Francisco I stayed at this year. The Xmas meal was superb, and the staff excellent hosts. We then headed to the skyy bar for a romantic drink, and we were not disappointed. Hotel is located about 10 minute walk from the main train line, one stop from platform 1 takes you straight to the airport. Public transport around the hotel is second to none, very efficient indeed. Overall we were highly impressed with the hotel and aim to return in the summer. Forget the negative reviews on this hotel, it's fantastic, chic, clean, staff very nice and helpful. Thank the staff for our very romantic stay.

Room Tip: Ask! Our room was superb.

Smart, modern hotel just outside Amsterdam. Short walk through the park to the centre or hire bikes from the hotel! Amazing breakfast, great value.

Large, spacious rooms, modern decor. Friendly staff at check-in, cannot be faulted

Would-be fashionistas will love the theme adopted be the hotel and the little fashion displays in the lobby. During my stay it was mostly jewellery, the dismembered hands acting as hooks holding necklaces were a bit disconcerting, but this is fashion.

The staff were wonderfully helpful and polite. From check in to checkout the process was flawless.

I stayed in double room but saw a friends' suite; I would thoroughly recommend spending a little more taking a suite, it will be worth the extra something. But I booked late so I can't really complain. The one downside if that my room was at the end of the hall near the service lift, there was a definite although hardly noticeable hum of an air conditioning unit. In other words, avoid visiting your friends' rooms to avoid room envy.

As an aside, an interesting design choice is the use of transparent glass doors to the bathroom. I know this is Amsterdam but if you're staying as a couple and you're British first make sure your relationship is sound.

Thoroughly excellent hotel, the debate on whether a more central location is worth the extra money still remains unsettled.

This was our second stay at Fashion hotel, the first being December 2009 - I rated our stay highly back then and its just got better.

To be fair, there isnt much around the hotel, but there is Surinamplein tram stop a few minutes walk away which is only 10mins away from everything you want in Amsterdam.

There is also Lelylaan train station about 10mins walk away with a direct train to the airport which takes 10mins.

We thought the breakfast was a little pricy at €19 (or €17 if you book at reception in advance), but we ordered room service one evening - food and drink were great and good value.

The service at the hotel in general is brilliant and very friendly - we cant fault the hotel and twice now we have had an excellent stay and would happily recommend the hotel to anyone staying in Amsterdam.

We will be back again, i'm sure! Thanks Fashion hotel (Nico and team)

Stayed here for two nights in December to visit the Amsterdam Christmas markets. Very cheap and easy to get to from the airport (excellent instructions on which train and tram to catch). Equidistant between two tram stops (about five mins walk to each) and tram maybe 15mins into centre. Tram day pass only about 7 euros and two day about 12 euros. Very frequent all day and evening. Didn't use much of hotel facilities but clean, modern and smart so very nice place to stay. Lovely swimming pool for a quick dip. We didn't have breakfast as too much food to eat elsewhere so can't comment! Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Within five mins we were checked in, with map, directions to the centre, best tramstop advice and all set for two days of much exploring. Thank you

Stayed here for three nights and found the service exceptional from Reception and the bar/restaurant, although the Sky Bar had a bit of an aggressive bar tender who did not like guests standing in the centre of the bar and was not afraid to point this out rather forcefully! The room was great, comfortable and the other features of the hotel were good although the breakfast was only average - cold fried eggs were a little odd and the coffee was mild. I would on balance however return. Lastly, the lingerie models in Reception were a curious attraction!

Very good experience overall - room was big and modern with separate bathroom and toilet.
Breakfast delicious! Staff was nice and helpful.

Some minor negative:
- Roomservice food disappointing
- After booking additional night we were called twice to remind us of check-out and once someone even came to our room to get us to check-out.
- Far from center but cheaper price easily covers for taxis
