“Simply wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

The hotel, location, staff, breakfast... everything was simply excellent. We chose this hotel as it was outside of Amsterdam, it's a 20-25 minute train ride to get to Central Station, so whilst not on the door step, for the price and ease of getting to and from the main area, this was ideal!

Stayed 4 nights on a recent exhibition at Rai
Rooms are clean and have plentiful amenities.
Staff were awesome always friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is plentiful.
The tram 5 and metro 51 goes to rai and the town
Buy a 24 or 48 hrs citywide transit pass.

Would repeat anytime I am in Amsterdam.

Not very easy to find, it is a clean and good-priced hotel, with excellent staff. The rooms are large and comfortable, bath room is modern and clean. Some very good restaurants in the area and close to Amsterdam RAI and the Amsterdam ringroad.

Only disadvantage: no private parking. But there is plenty of parking space around the hotel.

This hotel is a lovely hotel which i found to be value for money. The hotel is however a 30 min tram ride from the central station which is the only down side. The tram no 5 stops just outside the hotel and also metro 51 also stops there which is easy enough to get to.

Breakfast was lovely, the rooms were modern. would stay here again

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Stayed 1 night as I had an early flight out of Schiphol and my favourite at the airport (citizenM) was full. Easy enough to get to from the Amsterdam Zuid station, it's a 15 minute walk or a short tram ride. The rooms are small but comfortable and clean and provide a good nights sleep. Check-in and out was efficient and friendly and the included buffer breakfast was simple but sufficient.

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.
