“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

I've stayed in this hotel for IT conference and it was very nice, the room is clean and everything works, there's no restaurant but they sell some food from fridges and from the bar at the lobby, the location is very good and it's right next to the trains station from which you can go anywere in Amsterdam. The entrance is a bit hidden as you need to go downstairs but it's not hard to find too, it's a good option for a short stay for sure,

Dear Michalfrik,

The location is indeed a good starting point for your stay in Amsterdam with only minutes to the airport as well as the citycentre. At this moment the local government is putting a lot of effort in Sloterdijk to make this area, with many offices, a bit more into a Green City Area (Manhattan-Central Park) with additional green areas, shops, restaurants and culture. The developments are already started and are great to see. Once completed we look forward to moving our entrance to the other side of the building.

I choose this property mainly for its location, it's convenient to both the city and the airport. It sits directly across from the train/tram/bus depot but even though my window overlooked the station, there was no noise. The bed was comfortable and clean, the bathroom modern and convenient. The TV featured the main channels from a bunch of European countries such as BBC, RTL, ARD etc. WiFi was easy to access, free, and reliable. There was a little percolator along with two mugs and coffee packets and tea bags. Breakfast was fabulous! I'm used to HiEx breakfasts in the US which are nice but pale completely in comparison to what this hotel offered: different varieties of breads, croissants and pastries, cereals, four different kinds of sliced meats, two different kinds of cheeses, I don't know how many kinds of jams and jellies, Nutella, honey, you name it, yogurts, fruit, tomato and cucumber, lots of choices for hot and cold drinks... including hot milk for your morning cocoa! The staff was beyond friendly and helpful as well as efficient and knowledgeable. I feel I could not have chosen a better place to stay in Amsterdam.

I love the Holiday inn Express concept - simple, clean rooms that have all the features you need. Free (stable) WiFi and breakfast, no outrageous luxuries that become so irritating if you spend a lot of time on the road
This being a new build, is at the top of the Holiday Inn Express tree, with all facilities in new condition and immaculately clean.

Staff were exceptional, especially Yvonne and Niels at reception and bar. BTW - it literally takes 10 minutes to go into town on the #48 train for next to no $$s. Very convenient.

I'd come back anytime without hesitating.

Room Tip: They are all the same, but if you are a light sleeper, ask for one facing away from the train statio...

The hotel is located right by the Sloterdijk train station (the entrance is less then 100 meters from the train station stairs) in a very quiet area. And in less then 10 minutes you are in the center of Amsterdam.
There was a fire alarm (I suppose someone was smoking in a bedroom) but everything went smoothly and in less then 2 minutes the staff informed us that everything was ok and we could return to our rooms.
Super clean room and bathroom. Good breakfast, professional staff. Would return again without hesitation.

Very new and CLEAN venue. Excellent breakfast and excellent shower and bathroom. There are no toiletries but shower gel and soap dispensers. (Bring your own shampoo and soap if you are particular). The closet is a short rod hanging from a short shelf with those obnoxious "theft-proof" hangers. There is another short shelf under the work desk. If you plan on staying for an extended period of time these shortcomings may hinder your stay. There is a work chair and multiple outlets for electric/electronic devices. Free WI/FI, excellent!!
The beds are comfortable and there are two pillows that are firm and soft. Very nice. There is a 32 inch TV with many channels in multiple languages. There are two garages (EU 15 per night) in the facility and the one on the second floor has more space usually.
The proximity to the train station was noted by others. Very convenient. The area is quiet but there are limited alternatives for dining.
The personnel have been very professional and friendly.

Stayed at this hotel, whilst having a short break to tour around Amsterdam City. Only a short walk (under a minute) to the train station with great links into the city and airport (both under 10 minutes) and always regular trains. Nice clean rooms, great modern bathroom (shower only), clean comfy beds and good continental breakfast with lots of choice with friendly helpful staff.
