We thought the room was fine, en suite facilities good and excellent location for getting into the centre of Amsterdam quickly - a train about every 10 minutes and it only takes about 10 minutes. We walked into the centre through a park that comes out in the Jordaan, a pleasant walk and it takes about 45 minutes. The only downside is the ridiculously long queues to check in / check out, they need more staff on at peak times. Breakfast was very good, self service buffet, all you can eat, clean and attractive communal tables, and the bar is good in the evenings.

Very good value for money, lovely rooms, nicely decorated. We were a group of 4 - a couple and 2 others - and the room had a double bed and a bunk bed which suited us perfectly. Lovely shower, separate toilet, comfy beds and linen. Staff at the hotel was nice and helpful. The hotel is right next to Sloterdijk Metro station which is relatively convenient although I guess I would have preferred a location closer to the city centre as night buses are a bit of a pain after a night out.

Room Tip: I can't really compare, we were on the top floor and it was really quiet even though we saw a bu...

I stayed for three days there in a triple room with two of my friends. I can't complain about the cleanliness and the location also good 1 min walk to the train/metro/tram/bus station.
On the other side, the room was very small(only one person could walk at a time), Wi-Fi wasn't accessible in all parts of the room(which was really small!) And when available the connection wasn't that good.
To summarize not a good value for money scale!

Hotel (more like hostel) is decent - rooms were clean, facilities were available for guests to cook their own food and washing machines were available for you to do your laundry. Location is also great - next to Sloterdijk Station where you can take the train, bus or tram to get to the city center.

However, the hostel rooms were too small, the place is filled with young tourists and after 6 pm there wasn't anything to see in the neighborhood nor shops to buy things from. I couldn't complain much because the rates were cheap although I wouldn't mind paying more for a better hotel.

I stayed in the Meininger Amsterdam West with two colleagues for meetings in Amsterdam. Rooms are clean, small, quiet, bathroom is adequate but clean. Wifi everywhere in the hotel. Parking facilities next to the hotel, discount on rates via the hotel. It looks more a hostel than a hotel, with plenty of young people running around. Breakfast is adequate, there is enough. location is close to train to the airport (15 minutes) and bus to central station (15 minutes).
All in all a no-nonsense place, but for the same price you can book in a Ibis hotel close by, which affords more amenities.

This hotel was very clean and modern but I just didn't like the hostel feel, ie a kitchenette for people to prepare their own food and clearing up after yourself after breakfast. Lots of independent travellers too. Breakfast was poor quality too- we recommend going to the railway station next door and have breakfast in Starbucks. Overall not the Amsterdam experience I was hoping for. We were limited at the time of booking with availability and also had a car to think about and a 12 year old child.. The room was more than adequate with a good shower but the room was small and I felt like I was in a small cabin. You cant open the windows and rely on air con. The bedding very much like what you find on a ferry (duvet folded over that just covers the single beds)- and no spare pillows.Staff on reception were efficient and informative enough but I had to remind them that I had asked for a car space (they seemed happy enough for us to use the car park at the back of the hotel which was more expensive and possibly not as secure), when they have spaces in a secure car park in the basement of the building. We were carrying expensive bikes so were pleased with the final arrangement). The area is corporate, lots of offices and the hotel some way out of the centre- that said we had no problems using the trams and recommend buying passes for the numbe rof days you intend to travel not the daily tickets (works out cheaper)
