“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Location of the hotel is perfect! 10 minutes from airport and 5 minutes from central Amsterdam. The trains run every 5 minutes i think. The breakfast included was really nice and plenty to choose from. Crossaints, fresh juice, fruit and more. The rooms are large and the beds are so comfortable to sleep in. Also the staff were very helpful when my brother forgot a very important book in the room. The only thing to improve is when we used the coffeé cups in the room, they were not exchanged with new ones. Cleaning left them wet in the bathroom which is not very good hygiene. Would stay again and recommend!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors.

How to get there...
When u get off at Sloterdijk Station, look for the information Kiosk and ask d officer how to get to HIExpress. This is what he told me "Walk to and through the red door opposite the Information kiosk, go down d stairs, on the right is the Entrance to HIExpress" The Entrance is on level -2. Go up to level 1 to check-in at reception. U need to slot in ur keycard in the lift and punch your room level.
The room is spacious, modern n clean with my favourite flat screen TV. There's tea n coffee making facilities. Toiletries are wall hung type. No in room safe. No shower cap. 4 pillows n firm bed. Wifi sinal is good. Even though u can hear the trains rolling by it is not like u r in a disco. After awhile your ears will get immuned to the sound of the trains. We were always tired after sightseeing everyday and slept like a log.
Breakfast room is spacious with variety of cereals, croissant n danish pastry, fruits , cheese, jam coffe, tea and juices, eggs. It is d same everyday.
Reception staff are friendly, nice and helpful.
We got a very good non refundable rate package on Booking.com. Good views from our room. We like it here because its cheaper n cleaner than in the city centre.

Hi.. All. Stayed in this hotel for two Nights. Carefully planned room in all aspects and even Bathrooms at a Budget Hotel Like this. The rooms were large enough, Beds were comfortable and the Bathroom were neat and tidy. The shower system was thermostatically controlled and the showers were flowing perfectly.

The Hotel was close the bus terminal and train station which helped me to save a lot of euros and the automated security system was impeccable. The complimentry Breakfast was not the best but still there was no room for complaint. Very friendly hotel staffs as well. Over all it was great value for money. Thank you guys out there if any of you happen to read it.

Note that this is the "express" version of a Holiday Inn, therefore cheaper and more basic. However, it is very clean, rooms and bathrooms are spacious, staff is super friendly, big breakfast (included), free wi-fi (at times slow). Another thing to note is that it's in the middle of nowhere, close to a train station in an industrial area. You'll need to take the train (6 min) or the bus (15 min) to Amsterdam. They have comfort food at the reception if you arrive at night and don't feel like going to Amsterdam. Another plus is that it's 10 min to Schipol.

Stayed for around 14 nights in Oct-12.

Pros:
Friendly staff
Not at noisy - peaceful and calm
Easy availability of rooms as hotel is quite big compared to other Amsterdam hotels.
Right next to the train station
Free wifi
Walking distance from Gatwickstraat - this is where lot of offices are

Cons:
A bit away for the city center - will not prefer to stay here if coming to Amsterdam only for a day or two. Not much to do around the hotel.

Room Tip: Higher up to enjoy a good and peaceful view

Slightly out of the main town but easy access by tram and bus. We were asked what floor we wanted to be on and we chose the 7th floor with a fab view. The room was clean and tidy and very well presented staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast had a lot of selection and was well presented. Checking in and out was easy no hassle. We would stay here again.
