“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I stayed at this hotel once again for a weekend trip to Amsterdam. This hotel never disappoints; friendly helpful staff, nice rooms, great location and easily accessible by public transportation. Breakfast was good,what you would expect from a Holiday Inn.
Highly recommended.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My wife and I had a 4 day vacation in Amsterdam. The city center hotels were very expensive and we were OK with taking the great public transportation in Amsterdam, so we looked ofr a reasonable place on the outskirts of Amsterdam. This hotel is reasonable new. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good variety at the free breakfast area. Tram and metro station is just 2 minutes walk away and takes you into the center city in less than 30 minutes. There are many places to eat Le Bouchette (?) and many others. There is a small strip mall within 200 meters with a grocery store and other conveniences. Taxi ride to Schiphol airport was around €24. The rooms are on the smaller side, but overall it was a great compromise and a great value.

Room Tip: Not near the elevator shaft!

This hotel is definitely off the beaten path. The rooms are well appointed but could use some storing space and drawers. The room lacks some amenities such as a small fridge and a safe. The breakfast was good, what expected from an european Holiday Inn. The hotel is also very well managed and the personnel are friendly.
The hotel is conveniently located two short blocks away from the subway and trams 5 stations. This tram is perfect to go to most of the downtown attractions and museums. In fact, tram 5 is all we used while visiting Amsterdam. I highly recommend this hotel for solo travel or couples.

Stayed at hotel for a short break, the hotel is 30 minutes from Dam Square by the tram which leaves just outside. The hotel is new, clean and well kept, the free breakfast is a good bonus. The thing that struck us was that the reception always greeted us when leaving or returning.

The area is quiet and secure, our car was parked up for 3 days @ £8 a day with no problems.
We will definitely use it again.

I can not express how impressed my whole family was with this hotel.

We arrived and was promptly told about the parking (you need to pay but it's quite cheap).
We had three downstairs rooms alongside each other.

After booking in we all went to our rooms to 'chill out' before going to the city centre. The rooms was quiet we couldn't hear much going on even coming from the room next door (with my sister and her toddler - they are loud as heck but we didn't hear them).

The room its self was very clean, comfortable, modern and stylish! Excellent bathroom!

We had a coffee in the small lounge area near the reception before we all gathered to go to the centre. A new member of staff had just started and she was excellent in the service she provided she explained the tram system gave us a map explained there was some work going on so it was taking a detour showed us some places to go and even wrote down the station we needed to get off at when we returned incase we got lost.

My Nephew was not well so had antibiotic medicine with him which they kindly kept in the fridge for us as well as milk for his bottles.

Has free fast wifi and a decent TV in the room for when you just want to chilll from all the walking.

Will be returning here when ever i go to Amsterdam and i don't think i could give a more positive review, it was truly exceptional!

Only Con and thats being extremely picky is that there is plenty of tea and coffee in the rooms but only two sugar and two milk. But you are welcome to buy stuff from the supermarket and bring it back to the hotel so this was easy to resolve :)
