“Sloterdijk Station Holiday Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is extraordinarily clean and modern. The location is excellent as the train station is right next to it with a 5 minute ride into Central Station of Amsterdam city. We saved some money by staying on the outskirts of the city.

Was in for 4 nights for a trade exhibition at Rai, Very easy to get to and from Schipol, Rai and the tourist sites as there is a major transportation hub,Sloterdijk Station, right below it including:train, metro, tram and buses. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The free wifi connection was excellent and there is a desk to work on in the room with an ample quantity of electric sockets. The hotel looks new and both the room and facilities were well kept and clean, The breakfast buffet had a nice selection.
I would gladly return to this hotel for biz or pleasure when not seeking a luxury stay.

Room Tip: Higher floors have minimal train noise.

We just returned from a 12 day Baltic Cruise which began with two nights in Amsterdam before departing on the cruise. This hotel is very accessible for a pre-cruise stay. Upon arrival it is only a 10 minute train ride from Schiphol Airport for a mere 3.90 euros. Adjacent to the hotel entrance is the end of the line tram and bus stop for travel into central Amsterdam. We purchased a 48 hour transit card at the hotel front desk which covered our travel for our entire time in Amsterdam. The bus takes you directly to Amsterdam Central Station in 20 minutes. The trams take you to the museum areas and Dam Square in 15. The bus also took us directly to the Amsterdam Cruise Ship Terminal but the bus stop was about 500 yards from the terminal - very doable if not pulling a lot of luggage. I choose this hotel because many of the quaint boutique hotel in Central Amsterdam have no elevators and the rooms are smaller. The HI Express has large rooms and great facilities. The free WIFI throughout and the generous breakfast buffet got us off to a great start each day. You cannot go wrong in using this hotel as a base for any trip to Amsterdam and the surrounding area. Many excursions by public transportation can be taken from Amsterdam Central Station including half hour bus rides to the scenic fishing villages of Volendam and Marken. The Brasserie Hermes is the only restaurant nearby (directly across the street) but we had a wonderful dinner with great service.

This hotel is situated right above Sloterdijk Station - the upside is the convenience (just a couple of stops from the airport), the downside is the railway noise -despite double glazed windows. Sloterdijk is a great hub from which to connect to the local train and metro systems. The hotel is minimalist - like most of its type, but my room was modern, clean and all the basics were there, including fee WiFi. The price was a little high compared to other hotels of the same brand that I have stayed in, but occupancy was nearly 100% that night which could explain it.

The breakfast quality was poor and totally self-service, with queues for most things. If you don't want bread, ham or cheese - you have to make do with tea/coffee and fruit juice/cereal. Given the price of the room I would have expected a little more and perhaps some hot food.

I would stay again for the convenience of the location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front side of the hotel to reduce the impact of the station noise.

Dear HielanDrover,

Thank for taking the time to share your experiences with us. The hotel open little under two years ago and we are doing are utmost best to upkeep the property to its current standards. It is warming to read that our guests notice this as well.

The concept of the Holiday Inn Express brand is based on Select Service, a part of the services provided is our Free Continental Breakfast buffet, the same applies for the WiFi.

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Sloterdijk Station in Amsterdam for 6 nights in August. Overall, I'd say it was a pleasant stay. I'll list the pros first. The hotel is in an excellent location. It's a brief train ride from the airport (about 10 minutes). That same train can take you to Central Station in Amsterdam. There's also a bus depot right outside the hotel. The bus lines travel to various locations in Amsterdam. We were interested in the bus to Central Station. The buses leave about every 10 minutes and run until midnight. It's very convenient.
The hotel has a great buffet breakfast which is a nice way to start the day. Each room has free wifi as does the lobby another nice feature. There's a spacious lounge area with a bar which is a nice place to unwind. There also a small snack bar area. The staff made an effort to be helpful and usually were.
Now the cons,the neighborhood around the hotel only has one restaurant and is pretty isolated. It's really a large transit hub for trains, buses, trams, taxis, cars and of course bicycles (remember it's Amsterdam). The train station has a Starbucks, a small café and supermarket but they close very early. Specifically, the soap dispenser in our shower ran out about the second day and after notifying the front desk several times it was never refilled. What they did do was give us shampoo to use (they ran out of bath gel too!). We also had a problem with the thermostat in our room. The problem was IT DIDN'T WORK. Our room was hot. We notified the front desk. They said they'd try to repair it but weren't too successful. I recommend that you ask for a room on the opposite side of the hotel away from the train station to avoid the noise at night. Small things but worth noting. All in all I'd recommend this hotel primarily for it's accessibility to Central Amsterdam and other destinations.

Dear Guyton74,

Thank you for the time you have taken to share your experiences during your stay with us trough Tripavisor. I am happy to see that you enjoyed our Free Continental Breakfast as well as the Free WiFi that is available throughout the hotel.

The hotel is equipped with climate control, a system that is somewhat different from the air-conditioning that is common in the Unites States. You concerns with the shampoo have been addressed to our team working in the housekeeping department.

Thank you again for your complete overview of the pros and cons during your stay and we look forward to welcoming you again to the Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station.

Kind regards,

Paul Bremen

Arrive very late night from London for an early morning meeting in the office complex close to the Sloterdijk station. The hotel is right next to the traing station which is approx 10 minutes away from Schiphol. The hotel is not luxurious by any mean but comfortable enough. Good selection of breakfast. Wifi Internet is free but pretty slow.
