This is the 4th year on the run I've stayed here for sensation white. Perfect location. Take the metro from Amsterdam Central to Amstel fir a 5min walk to hotel. Alternatively €20 in a cab if you're out late. It's handy for Amsterdam arena, take metro to the gig and shirt taxi ride home afterwards. Great breakfast!!!

Large modern hotel with spacious rooms, guests seem to be people with business in the area or bus tour groups, a few independent tourists. Easy, short trip from Schipol on train to Ams-Zuid change for Metro to Overamstel, then 10 minute walk to hotel. The (day) staff were friendly and helpful. I had a large comfortable room including a refrigerator on 15th floor with a distant view of the downtown. The local area is industrial, with car dealership, along river and deserted on weekends. Get a GVB day-pass from the front desk and take the Metro #51 to downtown -- 10 min walk again plus 10 min on train. Be sure to get on correct train when coming back from city center. Didn't see any bus stops near hotel, no tram. Also no options for food/drink in area except hotel restaurant/bar. Not a good choice for first-time visitors to AMS but excellent quality and value for knowledgeable travelers.

Room Tip: "A" tower is taller than "B" tower with view of city.

Rooms are not cheap, but they are clean, practical and well equipped. Bathroom has a spacious shower. Then there is the breakfast... 22,5 euros is a bit... steep... OK, I don't think I have seen a buffet with a wider choice. But hey, there is only so much one can eat in the morning, right? If breakfast is more expensive than most main dishes in the hotel restaurant, something is not right.

The biggest ripoff is the hotel parking. I would expect it to be complementary for hotel guests. Or even a small additional fee. But 24 euros per day? Or not even per day, from the moment you are parked for seven hours of more, you pay 24 euros for that day...

What made me give 4 stars then? The quality of the breakfast and the very friendly staff.

Good hotel located in a very convenient area. Easy parking. Breakfast expensive but good and plentiful. Honestly a good hotel that I would recommend to those who come to Amsterdam for business and with the car. The rooms are spacious and clean. Very quite sleaping and beautiful panorama from the top. In the globa sure postive.

The hotel is fine, The rooms needs a little renovation, carpets were old, bed not very comfortable, clean room, Brekfast was nice. my biggest problem was that the location was really really bad. took 30 min to get to the city center. the walk to train or tram was on a dangerous highway. The hotel name is confusing - Amsterdam city, its not in the city at all.
next time i will pay a few more $$$ to be in the center.
