“Nice hotel ,rubbish system”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Booked this hotel via Bookings.com. arrived to pay at the hotel and was told that they charge per person not per room which wasn't stated on the website. so my friend had to pay another 150 euro's to get in even though we had booked a twin room. then when we arrived upstairs it was a twin room with a bunk bed making it a 4 person room (room 207) :-/ ! other than that , staff very helpful and bathroom was amazing ! also located 1 minute walk from the station ! which is 1 stop to amsterdam central at 2.90 euros :)

Checked into this hotel for the second time, stayed for a week and everything was just lovely. First of all, we arrived at 8am which was very early for a check-in but not only did they manage to get us a room immediately, they were also very friendly and helpful! The room itself was perfect for us and at a very reasonable price. The room, sheets and toilet were all very clean too. Housekeeping staff does a really good job in keeping everything spic and span.
- The reception staff are not only friendly and knowledgeable, they try their best to accommodate to your needs. They have a wide range of brochures and maps for tourists and first time travelers. You may also rent a bike from the reception.
- Room was very clean, toilet had hot powerful showers all day long and they offer daily room service.
- Location is convenient as it is located just beside Sloterdijk station which takes about 10 minutes to the Centraal station. The hotel is located at a very peaceful neighbourhood (mostly offices around) so by 6pm everything is just peaceful so it's awesome for light sleepers.
- At about 5 euros they offer a decent breakfast with bread, ham, cheese, coffee, tea etc. Nothing too fancy though.
Overall, a very pleasant stay and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Would return, definitely. Hope this helps.
Cheers.

I stayed here for one night. From Amsterdam centraal you can take train to amsterdam sloterdijk. It cost you 2.6 euro per person (when you buy the tickets at counter-probably it will be cheaper if you buy at ticket machine). The hotel is just next to the sloterdijk station. From there as well, you can take metro to places of attraction. The room was nice, clean and tidy. The bed is nice and really comfort. When your flight or train is later than checkout time, you can still stayed at their cafe with free wifi or if you intent to walk around, you can leave your luggage at their luggage room which is very systematic. You can also cook at their guest kitchen. Except their counter service, everything was perfect. Recommended to all.

Hotel was very nice and clean.
Very good location (1 bus or train to town. Takes around 15-20min to get there)
You won't find any pubs around if you like go out before sleep you have to travel by bus/train.
I tried to have few drinks downstairs but I was waiting with other travellers around 15-20min before someone came to the bar.

Room Tip: make sure you are having locker with you if you sharing a bedroom. It's hard to buy it around th...

Stayed here for 1 night on an impromptu trip to Amsterdam.
Location is good- next to Sloterdijk station which is 10 mins from Schipol and 5 from Amsterdam Central on NS intercity.
Check in was very very slow. 2 people on the desk and not a huge influx of guests, yet I was waiting there for at least 10 minutes before being served.
I was in room 108. It was very warm and the temperature control did little. No furnishing to speak of, an uncomfortable bed and a thin and rough duvet.
Ensuite was odd. Huge space but decorated like a school toilet! Shower was a hole in the middle of the cold slippy tiled floor.
Overall I wouldnt recommend the hotel, yes it is cheap but even so, it isnt good value. To compare- it is considerably lower quality than a Travelodge, for a higher price.
