“Perfect place for a perfect getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I have recently stayed at the hotel during New Year's period, and i have to say it is one of the best places i have ever stayed in. The location is just perfect with easy access to major attractions as well as very convinent to use the public transportations.
The front office staff is super friendly, they offered the breakfast for free which was rich enough.
The property is brand new, very nice modern rooms.
I highly recommend the hotel and will stay there again during my visits to Amsterdam.
All the best...

This is by far one of the best hotels I've stayed at recently. It is perfectly located between the airport and Amsterdam Central Station right next to the train station. It is what it is and for the price I find it hard to beat. The staff are very professional and friendly. The restaurant could be better but it is an "express" hotel so you get what you pay for. I'm hesitant to tell anyone about it because I would hate for it to be fully booked.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the station if you want to sleep in.

My wife and I stayed here recently on a 23 hour layover in Amsterdam. We had no problems taking a train from AMS to the Sloterdijk station and walking around the corner to the hotel entrance. The hotel is great! The room was very modern and comfortable. The bathroom was large and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast, as usual in a Holiday Inn, was brilliant (and free!). There is also free WiFi in the hotel, as an added bonus.

This is a perfect hotel for a short excursion into Amsterdam from the airport. It was really easy to find, and would be easy to access even hauling lots of luggage.

We highly suggest this hotel!

Had my first visit to Amsterdam on the 1st of October 2012, I was visiting with my boyfriend for both our birthdays.

Decided on this hotel as Sloterdijk Station is right outside the hotel - Would advise to not get a taxi as we did arriving to avoid any stress and ended up paying 36 euro for under 10 minute taxi ride.

Entrance to hotel is not on same level as train station if you come out the front of train station on the left you will see steps that lead you down and the entrance door is just round the corner on your right.

Checking In was under 5 minutes although the sheet the lady gave me had all my details wrong such as name and what city but I just let her know, corrected and signed. Was on the second floor room was lovely and big very modern as can see from everyone elses pictures.

Trains stopped about 12:30am so didn't hear a thing, the bed and pillows were the comfiest I have ever slept on! The lifts in hotel were a bit slow sometimes and we walked down the stairs most times. My biggest worry was it being too far from the city centre or airport but it is so easy to get to and from hotel & airport not a problem at all and 10 minutes at the most. I would stay here again :-)

The room is nicely decorated, modern and the shower box has an amazing system with magnets for a perfect seal when you are showering. The shower itself has a nice water flow perfect for relaxing after a long working day. It also has a nice system to set water temperature at 38oC, which i found interesting. The bed is high standard and the matress excellent! Breakfast is above average with good coffee! Staff really really nice and helpful.I think you get all the value for the price you pay in this hotel! Highly Approved!

I and my husband stayed at the hotel between 24-27 December 2012.It is really really near to Schipol Airport just 2 stops.Rooms are safe, comfortable and clean. Breakfast is very important for me and used as an important criteria for hotel rankings and the breakfast at this hotel was really good. here were various kinds of fruit and bread and also cheese, butter and jams same also.
It is almost in the center of the city since there are plenty of transpostation vehicles to reach the city center.Also despite that we reached the hotel earlier than checkin time they were very hospitable. I like it so much...

We stayed for 2 nights.
The service was excellent.
Fantastic breakfast and the bed so comfortable I wish I could have taken it home.
We were able to check in early (check in was @ 3.00pm when we arrived at 10am we were given keys straight away for the room which was already made up.)
The staff and friendly and helpful even allowing us to leave our bags in the hotel after we checked out on the last day so we could enjoy our last full day in Amsterdam.
Transport in Amsterdam is fantastic for 16 euros you can use tram, bus and metro for 72 hours and they run into the wee hours of the morning.
All in all a fantastic get away!!

Room Tip: Top floors have the best view
