Hotel Iron Horse is a converted, old police station. In fact, you can still recognize the stable outside of the building, where the police horses were kept; once upon a time.
I have been traveling from New York to Amsterdam every year, for about 8 years now. I have stayed a number of times at the Sheraton outside of Schiphol, but kept finding myself having to take a 50 euro taxi ride from business meetings and dinners in Leidseplein.
Three years ago I thought that I would give the Iron Horse a try.
I couldn't of been more delighted with my choice. The rooms are small, but comfortable. The staff is pleasent and helpful. The food, crowds and entertainment of Leidseplein are just a few meters away, yet I never hear any of it from my hotel room.
Transportation via a number of different tram lines are readily available and the most affordable way to travel through Amsterdam. Many attractions are within walking distance of the hotel as well.
I strongly recommend this hotel. I stay for business, but would gladly stay for a vacation as well.
