“Stayed in May 2014”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

A nice quiet hotel with a friendly and helpful staff. Day or 3-7 days passes are sold by reception. The bus into Amsterdam Centre is across the street and fairly frequent. Isolatorweg Metro station is a 10 minute walk. In addition it is a 15 minute walk to Sloterdijk Railway station for access to the airport. Limited food nearby, except in the hotel. Burger King is not open in the morning. Since the day passes are so cheap, it can save money by staying here rather than Ibis more central.

I stayed at the Ibis Amsterdam City West for 3 nights with 2 other individuals. We had 2 rooms on the third floor. The staff was very helpful in terms of directions and bus passes to the city center (about a 15 min bus ride) as well as arranging my taxi to the airport for an early morning flight out of Amsterdam. We did not try the hotel breakfast as we headed into the city center each morning. Rooms were a decent size with a clean bathroom and large shower. The beds were very comfortable. We did not have any problems with noise. I enjoyed my stay but next time I would like to be a little closer to the city center. It was not hard to catch the bus at all as the stop is right outside the hotel. We bought a 2 day bus pass for about 22 euro. I would recommend this hotel if you're up to the 15 min travel time to the city center, as it was a good value.

This is a pretty standard Ibis - a bit on the older side but still quite decent. The staff gave me exactly the type of room requested - top floor, quiet - and were generally very helpful. The hotel is well outside of the tourist district, but still easily accessible by bus, which I found just to my liking. It is a bit pricy for an Ibis, and the breakfast at 16 euros is robbery but I guess that's just Amsterdam.

I would gladly stay here again.

I found the staff to be very nice and helpful whenever we needed something. Was able to buy bus passes from the front desk which made things very convenient. Bus stop was up the street and across to get to Central Station and the City. At first I thought we were really far from everything, but after our first day in the City I did not mind being away from all that. Its pretty quiet and business like around the property. I actually liked it that way. The bus ride was not far at all and the bus came about every 15 minutes. We were never nervous about walking from the bus stop, which was not far back to the hotel at night. Seemed like a very nice area.
My sister in law and I were sitting outside at one of the tables and eating something from Burger King next door. An employee from the desk came out and told us we could not sit there and eat from Burger King. He never asked us if we were even guests of the hotel which he should have. Instead he made a fool out of himself and embarrassed us in front of others. We told him we are guests of this hotel and not just sitting in front of the hotel eating. He said, "Oh, I'm sorry" and left. Hey, asked questions before you accused someone of something. We thought that was very rude and that he needs to learn how to talk to people.

If you don't mind 15 minutes Bus ride to get into Amsterdam Central, then this is a good choice for you. Beautiful green and quite surrounding. The Hotel is well equipped with snacks, breakfast, colas etc. Not a great choice of food outside, you have only Burger King around.

This was the best value hotel I found when I was searching on Hotels.com for my family vacation. Good rooms, excellent support staff and god security. The bus stop is across the service road, where you have connectivity to Amsterdam Central for every 15 min.

Room Tip: Ask for Bus timetable at the reception. Also if you need 2 adjacent rooms, request the staff, they w...
