“nice long weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Stayed for 3 nights in march 14. Very nice hotel. Staff friendly and very helpful,especially Natasha. From the airport train ride few stops. Then the 48bus one stop to hotel. This bus also takes you to the city centre around 10-15 minutes. Was amazed as to how frequently and easy the transport system is. You can get a 3 day pass at the hotel. Good variety for breakfast and a great coffee machine! Rooms are basic clean and small but enough room well designed for space and nice shower. Only down side is not a shop around. Make sure you buy your cigarettes, snacks and drinks on your way back. There is a burger king next door. would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We were 5th floor nice room. Quite.

My husband and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. We got a travel pass for three days for €16.50 each and caught the bus to the hotel with one change. Could not fault the staff. We had a slight hiccup at reception but not the receptionists fault. Two ppl with the same name :) breakfast was a nice continental buffet, room was very clean and tidy. Travel too and from the Centre was so easy. Didn't feel like 10 mins on the bus. All round a perfect trip!!

My partner and Booked the hotel via booking.com. We stayed there from March 5-9 (5 days) and got a really awesome deal for this one.

At first we didnt know how to get there so we from Amsterdam Central we took a taxi going there and costs 20€.

When we first got there we were surprised by the location, it was quiet and calm. A little distant from the crowded and loud place of the city. A perfect location for resting and calming down after a very busy day.

The staffs who greeted us were very nice and very professional, they would assist you with everything you need such as Transportation pass, Some tours that they recommend, which floor would you like to stay in, Breakfast and more. They speak perfect English so communication barrier is non existent.

We stayed in room 912, when we got there, everything was so clean. The bed is pearly white and not to mention very very comforable. the Comfort room is sneaky clean, it was a comfortable stay for 2 persons. Oh.. There's also a safe where you can put your important documents. Just dont forget to get it again before you check out. The room service goes and clean our room everyday, so everytime we get back to our hotel, it feels like we just checked in.

The location is 10 minutes away from Central station. You can ride a bus going to Sloterdjk and get off at station Kabelweg and the hotel is there. Going to the city is also effortless. The bus station is just across the hotel. We got our bus ticket for 26€ for 5 days and with that you can use the Tram and Bus together.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay there and as i my partner and i discussed.. When we go back in Amsterdam.. We will definitely stay there again.

Typical modern, clean, light and bright Ibis hotel with funky and spotless public areas and lovely fresh rooms with good TV and excellent wi-fi. Friendly, helpful staff too. Yes this is in a seemingly out of the way location but actually is 10 to 15 minutes from Amsterdam Centraal Station on a reliable bus service with the stops outside the hotel. PLUS this is on a night bus route too - so every half an hour to get back from the city centre. It is also very near a Metro station (not a quick direct link to CC but very useful for connections to trains and trams at various stops including Sloterdijk Station). A brief walk from the hotel you will also find Sloterdijk Station for links to NS trains (day trip to Haarlem; getting to the airport), trams, Metro and buses. Get a GVB card and you'll enjoy a stay here.

We got a great deal for this chain hotel and to be honest weren't expecting much more than a clean room. What we found was a lovely modern hotel with extremely helpful and friendly staff, a fantastic continental breakfast with scrambled eggs and either bacon or sausage, a pleasant bar area and a quiet location away from the stags and hens of the city centre. With a bus stop just outside perfect for the centre and Sloterdijk station, and a Burger King downstairs for late night snacks, we couldn't have picked better!

I booked the hotel via Otel.com whom I will never use again as they never replied to e mails, provided no customer service, and failed to honour a voucher. The final straw was a problem with the booking, but that was sorted out by the helpful and enthusiastic Ibis staff. The hotel is clean and comfortable, with pleasant rooms, and provides a good breakfast. Staff were helpful and helped with knowledge of transport and connections into the city. The only drawback is the fact that there is a lack of shops, and cafe's near to the hotel, other than a Burger King. However regular buses into Amsterdam and only 3 minutes from the metro , enable the visitor to move around easily.

Room Tip: Rear rooms away from road are quieter
