“Value for money, but cold.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a budget hotel with well designed rooms, comfortable beds, and very convenient location. We stayed in a large family room with a double bed and two-bed bunker. Housekeeping services and the staff were nice, the idea of being able to cook your own food in the guest kitchen is brilliant especially if you are travelling with too kids who are quite picky about food. The hotel is next to the Sloterdijk Station where you can get access to the city. The hotel is crowded with youngsters by the way. The only problem was cold. The rooms were really cold, the heating system was probably turned off as it was April, but for a family living in the Aegean coast of the Mediterranean 10 C at daytime in April only means Winter, not Spring. It may be OK for an adult when he puts on the blanket at night, but was not easy with kids.

Room Tip: Family rooms are quite big.

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.
