“Clean & Close”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This hotel was perfect for our 3 day stay in Amsterdam. The hotel was extremely clean, the room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. It was a 5-10 minute walk from the restaurant district, and less than 20 minute walk from many main attractions (Anne Frank House, Heineken Brewery, Van Gogh Museum, etc.) The only thing that I would say was negative was that the walls were a little thin. I woke up many times from loud neighbors and the housekeepers cleaning. We took advice from other reviewers and ate breakfast elsewhere which I was glad we did. There is a nice place for breakfast right next door. However, the hotel does provide complimentary espresso, coffee, hot chocolate and cappuccino.

Hotel rooms have recently been updated. The location to transportation is great, breakfast is good, hotel staff is very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to others. The bus to the city centre is about a block away and a 10 minute ride.

Room Tip: there is no elevator, if that is a concern, if you wish a view be sure to ask for one, many rooms ov...

Very clean hotel.
The only con about this hotel is no smoking policy. Every room with a smoking sensor and you'll be fine 150euro if get caught.
Strategic location.
Free wifi.
From airport take a bus no.179 to Leidseplein (4 euro).
and the nerest CoffeeShop is Tweedy (150m) =)

We chose this hotel because of its discount rate on hotels.com, and its location. It was 35% off! Overall it's was ok. We had great wi-fi connection and the staff was really nice. There were little details, though. We got the basement Room that was right next to the breakfast room, so if you'd like to sleep in, make sure you don't get the room 16! Also the bed sheets had little holes in them, but nothing to be scared of. The hotel is one square away from the main streets and from the most important museums. Good luck!!

We stayed for two nights after booking on the day. We had a very nice triple room, close to the city centre and in particular Leidesplein Square which has an abundance of bars! The staff were very welcoming. The beds were very comfortable, and rooms clean. The complementary hot drinks in reception were also a nice touch.

We have been to Iron Horse in April 2011. The hotel was still under construction but staffs were helpful to provide necessary information, room service.

Quite, clean and very good location. Collect places of interest mini cards from lobby. If you wish to rent a bike, it's next door to the hotel.

Room Tip: We have rare garden view room on ground floor. Was nice though.

If you can get past the rather naff horse theme, this is a decent hotel for the price. We paid £380 for 3 nights during (UK) half term and at short notice which isn’t bad for Amsterdam and have no complaints.

The staff were helpful and efficient. The rooms are simple, clean, modern and comfortable if a little small and with limited views/daylight but better than many others we have stayed in. It’s in a very convenient location for the usual tourist stuff such as the Rijksmuseum and Leidseplien. Didn’t try breakfast so can’t comment on the food.

Overall a very good experience and would happily stay there again
