“Nice Ibis Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Hotel was a gentle 10 minute walk from Central Station and easy to find being on a main road and I felt safe in the area at all times. I had no problems with noise but I did have a room at the back away from the road.

Check in was quick , efficient and courteous even though I arrived slightly early there was a room available. Public areas were clean and well maintained. To access lift or stairs you needed your room key card.

As is standard in every Ibis I have stayed in the room was clean and reasonably equipped but slightly on the small side but there was space for your suitcase, hanging clothes and shelving. My room had a kettle and tea/coffee, my one issue there was paper cups and cheap ones at that, you had to leave them to cool down before you could use them. TV had a range of channels in different languages. Decent amount of lights and the switches were well located. Bed linen was Ok clean and in decent condition. The 'sweet bed' though just seems to be a memory foam topper and on one of the twin beds something had gone wrong and it sloped badly, causing me to fall out.

Bathroom was in Ibis's pod, reasonable amount of space in the shower, decent pressure and temperature. A hairdryer was located next to the sink. They provided a combined shower gel, shampoo and liquid soap. I did feel as though they could have improved the towels as they were thin and rough.

I made use of the free Wi-Fi and had no problems with speed or connection.

Overall a decent stay at (for Amsterdam Centre) a reasonable cost, but there were areas for improvement

This is my third stay at this particular Ibis for an annual trade show in Amsterdam. The location is good, being 10 minutes walk from Rembrandsplein and 5 minutes from the metro (which gets you into Central Station or to the Rai faster that the trams, and much cheaper than a taxi.

This time, I had a room at the back overlooking the canal, rather than on the front overlooking the street. This is a much nicer outlook. Suggest if you are booking, you request this.

Breakfast is good for a hotel of this class. Self service buffet with reasonable choice.

Price was higher as the rooms had been block booked, therefore value for money was not as good. If you can get a deal through the internet and accept the hotel for what it is, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Overlooking the canal rather than the street

After 8 years we have decided to stay again at this hotel. Nothing really has changed. The rooms are small, functional and the mattresses by far too soft. Breakfast is standard. W- Lan very fast.Location quite good. Summary: a bit overpriced for the value offered.

Ik dank u voor de tijd die u heeft genomen om uw waardering achter te laten. Spijtig om te vernemen dat u de de ntensieve renovatie van 2008-2009 niet heeft kunenn waarderen. Fijn om te vernemen dat u de service, waar wij veel aandacht aan besteden, wel heeft kunnen waarderen. Met vriendelijke groet, Peter Holierook, General Manager.

Stayed here for a couple of nights in September. The room was small and poorly equipped. The towels were tiny and rough. No kettle. Bathroom was small. Room was small. Like I was in Lilliput.

And I got bitten by a bug. Hopefully not a bed-bug.

The breakfast wasn't very appealing. Just a lot of bread. And foul-smelling sausages. They put me off my bread.

The staff were very polite but that's all it had going for it. The lift was slow and rarely responded when called. I won't stay here again. Location is alright.

I am sorry on this occasion that you were disappointed with your stay. I treat all feedback with the utmost seriousness. It is obvious that the standard Ibis hotel si definitly not a hotel for you. Please visit one of our other brands such as Novotel, Mercure or Sofitel during one of your next visits. Please feel free to contact me incase you need anysuggestions. Kind regards, Peter Holierook.

Amsterdam is an amazing city! People are so nice, with great places to visit, eat and drink beer. We went with friends and our daughter (she was 1y10m old) and had absolutely no problem with changing her, pushing the stroller (even in public transportation) or heating her food. The hotel is in a great location, one can walk everywhere. Also the subway, tram and buses are available close by. Ibis is very clean with very nice and helpful staff (you will find nice people everywhere).

I would certainly recommend this hotel to others, the location is really good as it's only a 15 minute or so walk from the Central Station, and then once you're there you really are in a good location to be able to access all of the city - we went everywhere on foot, but of course there are public transport links just down the road as well. There's also a nice big supermarket just round the corner too which is quite convenient. We found the hotel staff were friendly and helpful and also that the hotel itself was clean and there were no noise issues at night since this seems to be a quiet part of town. We were also given a free welcome pack on arrival at the hotel which contained some really useful maps and information about the city, and this certainly came in handy during our time in Amsterdam!
