“Good value, very convenient location, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

The hotel is very conveniently located next to the Sloterdijk station, which is just 1 stop away from Centraal.

The breakfast in the hotel was average, but did the job. Reception staff were friendly when we arrived and were also very helpful in giving us information to the city.

There was a restaurant next to the hotel we found on TripAdvisor that also served really good food so having a late dinner (9.30pm during summer) was a breeze as well.

I would stay at this hotel again.

a really clean hotel, great location near the train station, 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes by bus/6 by train to central amsterdam

the room was very clean and comfy, it was quite quiet even if the window was facing the railway track, the breakfast was simple but good quality, staff is very nice and helpful.

the only minus is that there is no refrigerator in the room so if you want to buy some cheese/herring to take home you can't keep it cold in the room

Dear Arseny K

Thank you for your stay with us. We are pleased to read the positive comments about our location, rooms, breakfast and staff.
Regarding your comment about the there not being a refrigerator in the room; as a Holiday Inn Express we don't have refrigerators in the room but there is always a possibility to leave any items that need to be cooled with our reception staff. They can keep the items for you in one of our refrigerators in our kitchen.

We hope to welcome you back in the near future

I stayed here for 3 nights, very nice hotel, staff helpful and friendly, It is 10 to 15 minutes on bus no 48 to Central Station, buy a 24 hr ticket on the bus it's cheaper and works on the trams. We were on the 4th floor and didn't hear trains, the front of the hotel is being refurbished.

Room Tip: No Pool ticked box by accident.

I spent last night in this hotel and slept very little as i was on the 7th floor and was disturbed into the early hours and then again from 0500hrs by train noise. It claims , ''Everything you need to guarantee a good night sleep'' except quiet!! It also states double glazing but this makes no difference. So if you are happy with such noise and lack of sleep this is the hotel for you. Besides this outside there is work going on and you get sand blasted by the wind and sand around the hotel as its a building site! Finally the free breakfast is nothing more than continetal breakfast so do not be mislead about the breakfast you get. All this for €172.25 pre booked a few weeks ago and not value for money in any way. Whilst i was complaining to the reception she says she will mention it to the manager who i think was stood behind her listening but did not intervene so i guess i will hear nothing from them. I have more bookings with them over the next few months but i can assure you i will be changing them from this hotel

Room Tip: do not use this hotel

Dear Michael D,

First of all thank you for taking the time to review Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station on Tripadvisor. Your comment is very precious for us to understand why you did not fully enjoy your stay. I am very sorry to hear we did not reach your expectations as much as we aimed to. Be sure your feedback will be taken in consideration by my team to change and improve our guests experience.

Please allow me to mention that the renovation work on Orlyplein is coming to an end, and that we are going to investigate the sound of the trains in your room. Since all our rooms have sound proof windows, I was very worried to read your comments and I will investigate what the problem can be. Please accept our sincere apologies that our complimentary continental breakfast did not meet your expectations.

If you plan to come back to Amsterdam and give Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station a second chance please let me know. I would personally make sure you have a better time with us!

Kind regards,
Anne Schrijen

Clean rooms, alert room service, adequate breakfast buffet, friendly staff except for the receptionist tht we met once we arrived
It is located in the sloterdijk station 5 min by intercity train, which is more convenient than tram or bus but more costly 9 euros for a couple return tickets
