“Beyond our expectations.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

The hotel was clean and the room very nice. The shower was terrific! Great water pressure. The hotel is located close to the tram or train (a block away), making it easy to get around. We had a very early morning flight the next day and because we were leaving before the complimentary breakfast, they prepared an extensive "bag breakfast" for us to take to the airport. It had meat, cheese, and bagel and roll to make a sandwich. A hard boiled egg and apple were included, along with a chocolate croissant! And that was not to share...we were each given a bag. It was our first time in Amsterdam, and the staff provided us a map and directions about the tram. It was a wonderful experience, and we would recommend this hotel to anyone. We did not spend any amount of time in the area of the hotel, but there was a convenience store on the corner.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

This Holiday Inn is conveniently located, especially if you have a car. There is a parking lot near the hotel (on a first come, first served basis. 25 euros/night, which isn't bad for Amsterdam), other parking spaces around the hotel (significantly more expensive) and free street parking from Friday night till Sunday morning. Nothing interesting around the hotel (looks like a residential area. You need to take the tram to the city center, which is less than 20 minutes away..The tram stop is right by the hotel. The room was nice, except for the bathroom, which wasn't as clean as it should have been. I would have complained about it had I not checked in really late, after a seven-hour drive. I'm sure that if I had, the staff would have fixed the problem, because they seem to form a good, professional team.

Highly recommended!

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!

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.
