“Magical stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Me and my girlfriend stayed at a studio apartment for five days and loved the facilities, the service level overall and the staff's attitude. Good value for the money. Would recommend the place for anyone that fancies a getaway. Amsterdam city center was easy to reach, being only 20 mins away by tram.

Great apartment hotel! The fact that it is not in the city center is not a problem as the train/bus/tram station is just a 5 minute walk away. The room was clean and quite spacious-I stayed in a studio-with comfortable bed and modern furniture. The staff at the front desk extremely helpful and polite. There is a vending machine in the reception area with a small selection of salads and main dishes that make up for the lack of a hotel restaurant.There are two restaurants nearby but they serve until about 9pm.There is a small restaurant at the station that stays open till later. I will definetly stay there next time I visit Amsterdam.

The staff here were very friendly, the apartment was clean and affordable. It was walking distance from a train station. We opted for a taxi which was approximately 20 euro to get to city center. The parking was approximately 20 euro. When it was all said and done I should have just paid extra for a hotel in city center. We did that on our last visit and it was worth the money to stay within walking distance. But, if you are a single person sharing a place with multiple people and you are watching your money, then this is truly the place to stay.

This is a great apartment hotel. Very, very comfortable and great beds and furniture Front desk very good and helpful.. 5 minute walk to train, tram and bus station. Wonderful, clean and comfortable facility.
Will definitely stay here next time. Not for people that want to be in the center of Amsterdam and are willing to pay the price of a good hotel there that would be atleast 3 times the cost of "Identity apartments."
A total pleasure. The only small complaint that I had is that the water pressure is a bit weak....

I was really pleased with the accomodation - It meet all our needs & the facilities in the apartment were first rate.
If you are looking for a central location then this isn't the place.
While it is a transport hub you were looking at about a 30 minute journey into Central Amsterdam - The train being quickest but not included on the GVB travel card.....

Dear Alan H,

Thank you for your review.

The best transportation to Central Station is indeed the train, within 6 min you will reach this station. Unfortunately it is not included in the combined GVB pass.

A great retreat from the chaos and noise of downtown, but still easily accessible thanks to the frequent, inexpensive train service virtually across the street at the Sloterdijk Station. An easy trip right to the Airport going the opposite direction from the Station too.
The quiet two bedroom, two bath apartment provided was first class in all respects, with extremely comfortable beds, linens, and other furnishings in the living/ dining areas. The kitchen was nicely stocked with essentials, and very clean. Another convenient feature for travelers was the available clothes washing machine facility, and we were also offered a portable rack to dry some items in the apartment. WiFi signal was consistently strong, and it was always a pleasure to interact with the knowledgeable desk personell.
Staying here provided a definite enhancement to visiting Amsterdam in comfort and luxury.
