“Cozy with dogs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

Very nice hotel with young and happy workers. We stayed there during a dogshow and we got a room with plenty of space for our dog cages. Thanks to Annika in the reception, the trip to Holland went out to be just perfect :)

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

This hotel is clean, well organised and very well run. The staff are friendly and can't do enough to help. Good bar an easy access to Amsterdam Central by train or hire a bike and enjoy Amsterdam in a different way! Breakfast is well worth it for the cost. This is a hostel that is more like a hotel!

A colleague booked this hotel for our overnight business trip but when I heard how much they paid (33 Euros from memory), I assumed the worst. However I was pleasantly surprised...the room was small but clean.
The most impressive part was the excellent bathroom (well, shower room), which looked brand new and something out a 4*.

Located right next to the train station, it is only 15 mins to Schiphol airport and not far from Amsterdam Central.

In the bar area, left in a bowl, you can obtain free Wifi access codes that give you a few days access (take one per device) - a great value add for a hotel of this price.

Although the snacks are limited, the reception staff recommended a local takeaway and arranged delivery.

The breakfast was great, with plenty of choices from cereal to yoghurt...to cheese...plenty of coffee on tap as well.

Very clean, haven't seen any bed bugs; quite helpful staff. Hotel is about 30mins away from Schiphol airport by bus, and about 15-20mins on the train. Its a big hotel with lots of rooms and dorms - both mixed and female. Free wi-fi and a lovely cafe.

I stayed in this hotel with my friends and group of students for three nights. The rooms were not luxurious but the breakfast was great. The staff was very helpful, I'd love to stay in other hotels of this chain.

We arrive in Schipol Airport at 8AM and take the train to Sloterdijk from that station is only 2minute walking distance, very convenience and easy. We have to wait to check in until 3pm and it was very tired since we have travel from London early in the morning. For visitor that choice this hotel make sure you arrive here almost 3pm or later as their check in time is late. Our booking is for triple room but granted quad room, more space. They have left baggage facility is convenience for those have big bag. From this hotel you can take bus or train to Amsterdam Central is only 5 minute by train to Amsterdam Central.
The breakfast that serve is value for money cost us Euro 5.90 per-person all you can eat, is buffet breakfast. Room is very clean and spaces for the price that we pay is excellent. Highly recomended to budget traveler to Amsterdam.
Wifi is Free in this hotel and strong signal in every room no problem.
