“Good hotel with excellent transport links”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Large corporate hotel with good service and facilities. Rooms are clean, well decorated and functional. Fine breakfast, though the restaurant was very crowded at 8am on the 3 days we stayed. We had two evening meals at the hotel which were served as buffets to the coach party I was in. The food was OK but not inspiring. There was limited choice of desserts, though, and they were uninspiring. People on other deals were served in another part of the restaurant and ate from a better a la carte menu, which I suppose was fair enough as they were paying considerably more than we did.
The hotel is 15/20 minutes outside central Amsterdam but on tram line 4 with the station literally a couple of minutes away - take the side door out of the hotel, turn right, turn left at the road and the stop, which is the terminus of the tram line, is a minute away. Tickets are 7.50 Euros for a 24 hour tram/bus pass, or 2.80 Euros for a single trip. You can buy tickets on the tram from the conductor, who has a little desk near the back, or if there's no conductor on the driver will sell you a ticket. There's a stop near Albert Cuyp market (Mkt-Stad) which is also nearest to Museumsplain for the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum, a 10 minute walk from the stop, a stop at Dam for Dam Square, or Central Station for the north side of the city.

Room Tip: All standard rooms are probably much the same.

Stayed here for three nights while we saw Amsterdam. The service was amazing and so are the rooms. One of the best hotels ive stayed in. I'm honestly surprised at how good this hotel was at the price I got it for.

Situated in a quiet area, without any particular tourist attractions, the hotel has the undeniable advantage of easy access to the city centre and the airport thanks to its proximity to RAI station (trains, metro and trams). The rooms are clean and well kept, with extra large, soft comfy beds, the staff is helpful and efficient, and the breakfast is varied.

Not much going on immediately around the hotel as it sits in the business district, however there are very good team and train links close by. Rooms are well kept, very comfy bed and food is ok. (I've only had evening meal). Bike hire is available for an expensive 15 Euro per day. Gym is excellent but small and with no sit up frame / machines.

Dear smallthor,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Tripadvisor.
It is great to read you enjoyed the room you stayed in and the gym. Your comments regarding the equipment will be taken into consideration.
Within a 15 minute walk there are a few bars and restaurants and ofcourse the tram and train can take you to the city centre within a few minutes as well.
Kind regards,
