“Holiday Inn for the win!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Comfortable rooms and good variety of choice at breakfast (continental). About 30 minutes on the tram from right outside the hotel into the city. And a Jumbo supermarket 5 minutes' walk away too. Useful for grabbing some midnight snacks after a day exploring Amsterdam. Friendly and helpful staff, clean and plenty of leaflets/information guides for planning day trips and sight seeing.

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.

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.
