“Brilliant price for a very comfortable hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Just returned from a 3 night stay in this hotel and was very impressed given the value for money (£47 a night on the weekend by booking the non refundable rate and 10% discount with free member card). The free buffet breakfast could not be faulted, warm croissants, fresh bread, boiled eggs, hams and cheeses, yogurts, cereal, amongst other things, good fruit selection and even really nice orange juice which is always the test! Also pineapple and apple juice. Rooms were very comfortable with large flat screen tv, free wifi and a lovely modern shower, lots of towels. Beds and bedding really nice. The bar was good too and free little bowls of peanuts served with drinks. The hotel was very convenient for me as I also work nearby, but staying here is only one stop away on the train line 5 mins to central station about 4euro return, so location is great for any visitor to the city. Of course no pretty view and the inconvenience that you have to get the train still but for the third of the price of a good hotel in the city centre (where you wouldn't get breakfast!) and still at 4 star equivalent in my opinion it's a brilliant option. I will be staying again and considering these hotels in other cities as its a great concept. The trains gave us no disturbance and food wise you really need to go to the city to eat, although we did have a quick take away pasta from Julia's in the train station which was really good actually and only 6euro or so for freshly prepared hot pasta in a box with fresh rocket and Parmesan. Last tip, ask reception for anything you need at all, they gave me a toothbrush and paste kit as I forgot mine and they lent us an adaptor. Also luggage room for left luggage. Really excellent!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the non train side!

The conditions in this hotel are very good. The bed is really comfortable
You cannot hear a thing from the railway station outside.
The position of this hotel is very convenient with good tram connections (you take tram 12 and get off very close to the centre)
Not to mention that you can take almost any train to Amsterdam Central and it takes around 12 minutes.
Plus when you are ready to go to the airport there is a direct train from there and it takes 30 minutes.
Again "good connections"

Room Tip: ask for a room on the side opposite to the train station if you can.

Hi,

We stayed here for 4 nights and did not encounter any problems. It is in a good location and getting to the airport was only 2 stops. Despite being so close to the train station we did not have any problems sleeping. It is only one stop from Amsterdam Central and it took only 6 minutes to get there. The area is very quiet at night and there is one restaurant (cafe hermes) which is a minute walk from the hotel. The location is very convenient to taking the train to Delft, the Hague, Alkamaar, Haarlem and Brussels.

To get to the hotel, look for the bus and tram exit. As soon as you are outside, turn right and it will lead you to the Holiday inn level -2 entrance. Ring the buzzer if you are not a guest yet and someone will buzz you in. We had a difficult time finding the entrance so hope the instructions I have given are clear for future guests.

Internet connection was great. Breakfast consists of hot and cold items. However, unlike
North America Holiday inn expresses there was no cinnamon rolls or cookies in the evening. My only gripe is the bed, whenever you roll over towards the centre it sort of caves in.

I would definitely recommend this establishment to friends as it is much cheaper staying here than in the centre of town.

Dear caphill,

Thank you for such a complete review and the time you have taken to so. As you may have noticed there are construction works taking place at the front side of the hotel. I am happy to inform you that, once complete, we will be moving our entrance to the more logical side of the building. An improvement we are very much looking forward to.

Over the last 6 months we have been replacing all of our mattresses in order to improve the comfort of our guest. Please be so kind as to contact me via info.amsop@hiex.nl with the room you have stayed in order for check the bed myself.

Again, thank you for your kind words and we do look forward to welcoming you to our hotel during your next visit to Amsterdam.

This location makes for a great stay between the airport and Central. We stayed 2 nights and I must say I was very happy with our choice. The hotel is a quick train ride from the Airport and we were checked in early by a very Friendly Staff member. The room was a standard double twin room as we booked, super clean and just the right size overlooking the Train Station.

Breakfast was typical buffet, it was tasty and made for a great start to our days.

The super helpful staff never let us down with suggestions, we rented bikes and were able to check out a very nearby Windmill. Instead of taking the train to Centraal, we took Tram line 12 from the front door to the Museum District in about 20 minutes.

All in all, the location is great, the price was right and the rooms clean. I was very impressed by this property and will consider staying here again.

I have to say I visited the hotel only one night, so I write about the experience of one day. But already in the beginning its strange the mainentree of the hotel is out of order ( and looks like long time not used ) so you have to take a side-door near the garage. The lobby was clean and OK check in without problems, but the personal told me already at this time we are sorry but because so many guest are here now its possible the internet connection. In clear it was at all not possible to login ( connection less than a second so it was not possible to login ). At the room the carped needs a cleaning the walls some paint. The cups was dirty, means not used but bad cleaned and the spoons not polished, also the toilet was not well cleaned.

I cant write about the breakfast because I didn't tried it so I will not talk about.

Very good was the personal at reception nice polite guys very helpful and a big plus of the hotel. Also the bed was very good and clean this both points are the reason for 3 stars.

Room Tip: I will not use this hotel again

Dear Stefan P,

Thank you for the time you have taken to write a review on the hotel on TripAdvisor. I have to agree with you that in any hotel the rooms should be clean and that the difference is made in the details.

The city of Amsterdam is currently renovating the square in front of the hotel, once this is finished we expect to move the entrance to the more logical site of the building. Regarding the internet I am happy to inform you that an upgrade is scheduled later this month. Today, guests travel with many appliances they would like to have online whilst being on the road. For that reason the number of IP addresses in the hotel will be adjusted to supply with the demand from our guests.

I am happy to read that you enjoyed the service as provided by the team as well as our newly installed beds. I am confident that, with the current upgrades taking place, we will be able to provide you with everything that you may expect whilst staying at a Holiday Inn Express Hotel.

Again thank you for your time!

Kind regards,
Paul Bremen
