“Great hotel, brilliant location, fantastic staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

The hotel is in a great location, very easy to get to the centre (only a few minutes by train) and only 10-15 minutes from the airport. You also have the convenience of travelling by tram and bus to many locations, as it is located at a main station. The most important thing was the staff, every member of staff we met from the managers to the cleaners were friendly, courteous and extremely professional! We requested a different room and we were also able to check in early, this was not a problem for the staff. When we visit Amsterdam again, we will definitely be staying here!

Great hotel in a great location. Would definatly stay again. Such a beautiful city. The hotel is right at the station and its only 5mins on the train to the centre of amsterdam and a day return is only like 4.70 euros. Would recommend this hotel.

Another short and sweet review...

Amsterdam the place full of art, fashion, fancy food, and green herby stuff. you really need to go and visit this place is one of my places in the world

Hotel..

phenomenal location one stop from the airport 2 stops from central station, you walk straight out the station and its attached on the side

sloth station also runs all over holland we did a day trip to the lovely harrlme and zandvoort beach. wow what a suprise that was

Rooms
rooms were cool and what you would expect but they had a really hot shower which was nice to freshen up and a cool neon light in the bathroom, which after a night at the coffeshops was chilling

food
breakfast was continental so it was just bread cheese ham and cereal it wasnt bad tho it kept us full til we hit central dam

i would recommend the following whilst in amsterdam

visit museums - too many to list
liederspilen has great streets acts you can spend an hour watching also there is a coffeeshop built into an old police station called bulldog.

my fave coffeshop was hunters.. defo check it

we didnt rent a bike because the thought of losing it put me off and its more responsibility, i like to travel light (backpack) the public transport is spot on trams,trains,buses or just walk

dam sqaure - the heart of amsterdam

gauchos steakhouse to eat yum yum

zandvorrrt beach was well hot when we went its a must see and a lovely town where locals go

hope ive been helpfull message me for more info

see you again holiday inn

I've stayed here a couple of times recently and was expecting too be there most weeks for a couple of months.

This is a great hotel in a poor location (but with good public transport). It's VERY clean and i like the overall decoration.

BUT, the beds are really not good. Hard, lumpy and the hotel isn't even that old.

Staff are friendly and helpful.

Other minor gripes .... the Internet access isn't very fast, but it is free. Breakfast is ok (and free) but the selection isn't great (after a couple of weeks), but they really need a better coffee machine. Rooms can be a bit noisy (from the station) but the rooms away from the station are reasonable.

Room Tip: High floor, away from station

This hotel was outstanding, the staff were great, the rooms were great, location was great and the breakfast provided a good selection for a European style breakfast.

1 stop from Amsterdam Central on the train (4.50 E RETURN) 15 mins from the Airport and the hotel was just outside the station.

I travel to NL 4-5 times a year. The hotel is just 3 stations away from Schisphol airport. It takes about 30 min from landing until arrival. And if I need to travel to other places Sloterdijk is a train hub and also very close to Amsterdam central. . Friendly stuff, free Wi Fi, nice rooms and OK breakfast.

The staff was really kind, the room was clean, quiet and comfortable and the building stands in front of the train and the bus stations. Not a good view but effectively very useful. I can't remember much but we had a nice stay!!!
