“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I highly recommend the Meininger Hotel to anyone looking to stay in comfort. This hotel is modern, clean, equipped and 2 minutes away from the train station. I'm looking to travel back to Amsterdam in 2014 and the Meininger will definitely be one of my stops! This hotel is more suitable for people between the ages of 16-35 travelling with friends :)

My 2nd stay in the Meininger hotel, with a party of four Indonesian friends. I had chosen this hotel based upon my earlier experiences and was not disappointed. The hotel has a 'hostel' atmosphere, there are 4 and even 6 bed rooms, but also the normal 2 persons. Rooms are not big, but clean, the bathroom is clean and has a good shower. Beds are comfortable.
Although the hotel is next to the station Sloterdijk there is no noise in the rooms.
Staff is friendly, efficient and helpful. Use of the parking garage is € 10 per day, which is what you spent in Amsterdam in 1 hour.
Transport to Schiphol Airport as well as Amsterdam Central about every ten minutes, or take the bus 48 to Central.
Breakfast is simple, but ample, is constantly replenished.
There is also a small kitchen, with washing machine and dryer.
All in all, no regrets in staying there again!

Room Tip: No good or bad rooms, all are more or less the same

I stayed in this hotel on a weekend away with a few of my friends for 2 nights. We had a roo. For 4 which included a double bed and bunk bed. The room was very clean and surprisingly modern. I say surprisingly because we paid such a good price(only £20 a night). The beds were comfy and ideal for what we needed. The hotel itself has all what you want for a weekend away. There's a bar and a kitchen and a very handy vending machine to help with those ever impending munchies.

The location is about as good as it can get if your not in the centre. It's about 2 minutes away from sloterdyke (don't think that's how you spell it) which is only a 5 minute ride to Amsterdam Central. The airport is really easy to get to as well.
Definitely somewhere I would recommend to anyone going to Amsterdam and I would no doubt stay there again

The hotel was very nice room was lovely and the breakfast was plentiful and good. As other reviews say it is out of the city but it's only one stop away which never bothered us at all. The rail network is excellent safe, frequent and easy so no hassle at all.

The hotel is conveniently located just outside of the city centre. It is literally right next to Sloterdijk station (which is only about 2 stops from the airport) and it has a bus stop just outside with the number 48 bus taking you to the city centre in about 10 minutes. The hotel has a bit of a hostel feel about it but is very much a hotel. It was very very clean with comfy pillows and a power shower. We had a room of 4 which was 2 single beds and a bunk bed at the front of the hotel. It wasn't very nicely decorated and you can hear a lot of noice but it was fine and comfy. The staff were all very helpful and nice. The breakfast you have to pay for and is not very interesting, i would reccomend skipping it and just eating in the city. There's wifi all over the hotel along with bike hire.

The room I chose was anything but small. The breakfast was very good. You know what made this hotel even more "recommended" to me? Its position. Yes, this hotel is located near the Sloterdijk station, and that was really facilitating every time I came back from Amsterdam center. Definitevely recommended.
