“Around the Outskirts of the Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Although we were on the outside of the center of Amsterdam, this was the perfect spot for us to use as the sleeping/resting venue. The rooms were fairly small in size but we were only there to rest and partake in the morning breakfast which catapulted us into our day of seeing Amsterdam. I felt secure there; if it was past 10 p.m., the desk had to confirm that you were staying there before they buzzed you in. We did ask for a roll-away bed the first night but did not receive it until the second night. Public transportation into Amsterdam is available via the train, which I highly recommend versus the bus. We were only 1-stop away from the Amsterdam activities....

We where here last september. We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was just perfect, the location, the hotel and the staff. Jill was working when we checked in and checked out and she helped us with everything. When I needed something we just asked her and she helped us with everything. She made our stay complete. We will come back for shure next year!

Do you go for the City Centre Hotel or for a thoughtful and better experience? From the airport a train ride to this Hotel - to the City a train ride a bus ride (Number 48 bus) and (Number 12 tram)

Hotel reception staff quite superb - buy your transport tickets at reception. 360 degree customer / client focussed.Breakfast continental and plentiful.Rooms clean and shower room excellent.Luggage room available for last minute touring on last day.
Bar area delightful and mellow no hen or stag party groups and WFI a bonus.

A transport hub area - views very industrial but a small price to pay given the benefits. A very strong recommendation.

Room Tip: No great views - go for the best room available.

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...
