This hotel is just a 25-minute journey out of Centraal Station on the No. 5 tram or the No. 51 Metro, which stop just a three minute walk away. Tickets for unlimited travel for any number of days are available at Centraal Station.
The room was extremely clean and evenings and nights were very comfortably quiet. The staff were wonderful - always greeting you with a smile when you returned and most helpful when planning what to do during the day. There are a few restaurants within a walk from the hotel but (recommended by staff) the Indonesian Takeaway is well worth a visit - and the Hotel is quite happy for you to use the breakfast dining area, plates and cutlery to enjoy the meal in peace, with the bonus of the small hotel bar nearby.
We really would recommend the Holiday Inn Express South and, the next time we visit Amsterdam, we will certainly make for this Hotel again.
