“Great location for the RAI...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights during a conference at the nearby RAI... good value, comfortable rooms, TV was dated but not a problem as I wasn't in the room much!
Hotel bar was very welcoming and had some good local beers... not just Heineken!

Room Tip: Tram line 4 has it's terminal just around the corner from the hotel... ~15 mins. into the heart...

This hotel has been great and I love that the air conditioning works which is unusual in Europe. The service has been excellent. The continental breakfast is always tasty. The location is near a tram station that takes you to the main square. That is very helpful and makes good use of time. Thanks you

We stayed for four days and we had a very good time. The hotel was comfortable, the staff always very kind. But the rooms are a little bit old, also the tv-system. The breakfast was okay, but nothing special... But anyway, We will come here again next year.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

The hotel in itself is ok, but nothing , absolutely nothing could explain the 350 euros a night ! if my husband didn't have business in the nearby RAI centre we wouldn't have stayed there. Actually as soon as he was done we moved to another hotel closer to town center for the rest of our week stay in Amsterdam and cheaper !! .
You have to pay 22 euros per day for wifi (whaaaat !!!) , and 22 euros per day per person for breakfast, and don't let me start on breakfast , it would have been perfect if it was 6 euros per day per person ! but at 22 , you expect to have something else than english breakfast everyday, and a fruit salad that doesn't have only 'average' fruits (i.e apples, pears and canned pineapple). at 22 euros per day and per person I want pancakes, crepes, waffles, pain au chocolat, fresh juices, salad fruits with kiwi, strawberries and passion fruit.
If your business is paying for your stay there then fair enough (well still not but hey at least it's not coming out of your pocket) , but if you're looking for a family stay , look somewhere else, and closer to town centre !

Dear Maria A,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am saddened to learn that you were not able to fully enjoy your recent stay with us. It is certainly not our intention to inconvenient our guests with our prices. We offer rate options that are comparable and well-reasoned. Nevertheless, your feedback is taken into serious consideration as this will help us on our pricing strategies in the future.

Once again, thank you for staying and I hope that you give us another chance to provide you with the best value accommodations.

Sincerely,

Faith R

When hearing at first our trip was going to be in a holiday inn my first impression was not a favorable one to say, but this hotel has definitely ticked all the boxes, from arrival to checkout we had the highest of service.
Our room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was a lovely spread with cold and hot choices all lovely and fresh. We ate diner there on out first evening and again there were great choices, all in our group had a wonderful meal. The hotel is situated 2 mins from the nearest tram station. Then it's approx 20 mins in the centre.
Our stay was made more enjoyable by the ever helpful and happy staff. Definitely well worth a visit. Thanks for a great stay.

Great service, good quality Holiday Inn, two minutes from tram so easy access to town center. We had a problem with internet access in our first room and the staff was very helpful and friendly moving us to another room.

Room Tip: Make sure your wireless connection is good before accepting room.

We were very pleased with the hotel. It is very clean and staff is helpful, going above and beyond to assist. The tram ride to the hotel gives a nice overview of the city. We would recommend a stay here
