“The place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

Well organized and staffed reception. A quick check in and off to the room. Modern and clean, inside and out, with modern keyless entry and green energy usage. Breakfast was extra but worth the price. Perfectly located next to Train/bus station for quick and easy travel to the center city as explained by the staff. They also sell day tickets for trains/trams which are well worth the price. Locating the hotel is easy as well by exiting the Ring around the South West area of Westpoort. I'm certain there's many more hotels that provide unique niches in discovering Amsterdam. I would be happy just to utilize this one again to avoid any unhappy surprises from other hotels.

Room Tip: Didn't venture around the neighborhood. Somewhat in business district. Didn't see many resta...

We stayed one night, everything was good, really nice stuff (receptionist looks like a Beyonce!), air conditioning in room, really great shower bath, close to railway station, hotel bar, maybe could be breakfast in the price

This establishment is very handy for Amsterdam Central Town as it is located near Sloterdijk station about 5 minutes walk and then a 10 minute train journey, which is a very good service or easily walkable to the Amsterdam Central (3km`s)

The check in was very easy as I prepaid and booked online at a special price of 58Euro!!!
Check in staff are friendly but don`t expect them to be Dutch!

The cleanliness levels are very high and the Buffet Breakfast excellent (you pay extra though 7.98 Euro) just get there early, I ate my Breakfast at about 6 am but by 7 am it was packed with college students on coach trips!

The room is clean and functional, the shower has good pressure with bathroom large and nice compared to English plumbing!

But I will never stay there again for the following reasons.

1. Pillows are like bags of rocks, surely they can do better!

2. Paper thin walls, so don`t expect any sleep unless you are immune to other peoples bad habits!

3. You CANNOT OPEN THE WINDOWS, so spent a sleepless night almost suffocating and gasping for air.

One night was enough, just wish the website stated that the WINDOWS ARE SEALED, as a singer it will dry your throat and suffocate you (the air con that is)
I find this a big problem in Amsterdam, Sealed Windows all over the place, so just check before booking Hotels in this exciting Town that I can say is always friendly to me.

Room Tip: If you like breathing don`t stay here! WINDOWS SEALED if you want a good room stay elsewhere!

Dear guest,

Thank you for leaving your coments here, we appreciate your feedback!

We are happy to see that you have enjoyed your stay here but regret to read that our closed windows bothered you so much. As reception might have informed you, we work with a 24 hour air regulation system which blows fresh air (not air conditioning, that is a seperate function) into our rooms which keeps our guests from suffocating. As open windows can cause many problems for hotels in Amsterdam (smoking in the rooms, noise complaints, throwing stuff down and jumping down after a bad trip) you might understand that an air regulation system is a good alternative.

Thanks again for your feedback, we hope you have enjoyed your stay in Amsterdam!

Kind regards,

Meininger Amsterdam

I stayed here for 3 nights with friends, it is located really near to the Sloterdijk station, so you can reach the centre in few minutes by metro, but also buses and trams work good. The staff was kind and helpful, room very clean and they follow a politic of enviromental sustaining, so if you want your towels to be changed you have to leave them on the floor, or they will leave you the same in order to pollute less. Moreover, you can take your I AmSterdam card here, and they apply no tax.

We wanted to do an overnight museum weekend with the kids, and this hotel fit the bill - easy train access from the central train station in Amsterdam, clean room, comfy beds, great rate for a Sunday stay with two adults, two children.

Only stayed one night but thoroughly enjoyed my stay.he rooms are clean, beds are comfortable. There is free wifi everywhere. The bathrooms are of adequate size, large shower with good hot water pressure.The is a TV with various channels(lots of dutch ones)

The staff are very friendly and there are loads of facilities to keep you busy downstairs.
Breakfast is also served but I had to leave early to make my way to Brussels at 6am.

The hotel is a bit of the distance from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, a bit too far too walk but on the good side it is right next to the train station which gets you there in about 5-10 minutes.
