“Awesome time!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We took friends to Amsterdam overnight, just to hang out. It was great. There was underground parking so we didn't have problems with parking. Nice restaurant with great breakfast. Very clean rooms. Awesome staff. And everything was close by. I will definitely be making use of The Holiday Inn express again since even the price was great. Comfortable beds, spacious showers, and good food. Great experience.

This is a very good hotel. For a trip of two days in amsterdam it's perfect. We couldn't believe it but the city is just 5 minuts with the train. Excellent breakfast almost everything to offer. Very good and helpfull staff we had a very nice check in with a receptionist from egypt her name is bekenam.
We will visit this hotel again in the summer.

Stay: 22Jan - 24Jan

There is a false sense of security at this Holiday Innn Express. The lobby is accessible to the public from street level. Access to the hotel rooms is by card reader in elevator, therefore don't expect a room safe to safeguard your valuables. Yes, the patrons room are secure from level 3 to 8 but not secure from hotel employees i.e.: housekeeping from pinching your property. We did not discover a digital camera and sterling bracelet missing until hours later when we arrived at our hotel in Istanbul later in the day.

By all means please don't allow my post to deter your stay, I would suggest taking your valuables with your on your day excursions.

Sometimes there is this rare moment you are just looking for a cheap hotel and you wonder how it is possible that the price quality ratio can be that good in amsterdam. For Less than 70 euro's a place to sleep for 2 persons, breakfast for two persons, and a closed parking garage included in the price. Incredible :-) And then the quality of it all was also very good. Well if you want to make a remark the hotel was not in the city centre, and yes it was outside the ring so nothing for people without a car or other means of transportation. Breakfast was good, the bed was good, room was very good, garage was very good, people where friendly. I liked it, and will definitely go back again to this hotel.

Stayed at Holiday Inn Sloterdijk (pronounced Sloter - dyke) for 2 nights with my sister. Was charged €4 Local City Tax on arrival. Stayed on the 2nd floor and wi-fi connect was strong! Also the TV takes a USB stick, so was able to watch a couple of shows. Hotel 5 minute walk from the station, less than 10 minutes via to Amsterdam Central. Standard Continental Breakfast as well as fresh hot boiled eggs (yum!) Would have given 5 stars, but 1. An alarm went off at 9.20 in the morning and 2. the receptionist tried to charge me Tourist Tax which is the same as Local Tourist tax.

Room Tip: If arriving by train from the airport, take the bus and tram exit out of the station and turn right.

Dear Tallie156,

Thank you visiting us, we were very pleased to welcome you as our guest.

We are pleased to read you enjoyed your stay,
Please excuse us for the fire alarm in the morning. Fortunately, we found out within half a minute that the alarm was under control and caused by smoke from the toaster in the breakfast area. We are sorry to read that this was an inconvenience for you.
Due to the Dutch law, all hotels in Amsterdam have to charge 5% citytax over the roomrate. Please contact me personally if you have any more questions about this.

Once again, thank you for your comments.

Kind regards,

Stayed 2 nights. Very good value. Very accessible. Connected with bus, tram and train. Staff very helpful. Rooms very clean. Breakfast was great. Couldn't ask for more especially at the price. Go visit Amsterdam!

Room Tip: Ask for quiet side of hotel (opposite side to station)

Excellent location, you have train, tram, bus AND Metro all next to the hotel - So pay less and get a 24 / 48 hour ticket (can't use them on the Mainline trains) tram 12 goes up to the Museums by Vondelpark area and then you can change to a 5 that goes up the main street of shops Via Leindsplein to Centraal Station.
What you save on hotel price you can spend in one of the many restaurants throughout the city. Rooms are small but comfortable, clean and ideal for a short weekend break, Staff friendly and always around - 2 free Pc's in reception that can be used and Wi-Fi throughout (free for IHG members) had no issues with connecting.
Breakfast was great for a free offering - really liked the hams and cheeses (makes a change from a cooked breakfast)
Will be back no-doubt on my return to Amsterdam
