“Friendly, new, clean and quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

We stayed at the Identity apartments as part of our Europe trip, and we were very happy with our choice. The apartments are very new, and located close to Sloterdijk station (one stop away from Centraal, and also with trains to Schipol if needed). The area was quiet (but not dingy), it was in an office/commercial district, and we felt safe the whole time we were there.

The staff were also very friendly and helpful - when we returned from the hospital due to a nasty bug, they offered to let us use the scanner to send the documents to our travel insurance company.

Pros:
- Close to transport
- Quiet
- Clean
- Very new
- Free wifi
- Laundry facilities were very good

Cons:
- Cobblestones outside front door were difficult to roll wheeled luggage on

Everything in Amsterdam is just a train away. Super quiet apartments which provide clean amenities, great wee gym, friendly helpful staff. Just have to space showers apart when family of four as hot water heats every half hour, I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here a short while ago with my wife and two daughters, and we found it most enjoyable. The whole place is ultra modern, free wifi (good speed too) and the staff were pleasant too.
The only small complaint I should mention was the funny single bed/s setup they use. Our bed was literally two singles pushed together, and made separate too. A bit odd, but apparently this is standard in the whole complex. Anyway, funny as it was it didn't bother us too much.
I would recommend these apartments to anyone visiting the dam who wants to stay a little further out of the central chaos, and who have a high standard of expectations. The location is only one stop on the metro from both Shiphol airport, and central Amsterdam, so very convenient.

The location of the apartments is very convenient if you come to A'dam with the car - there is a garage where you can leave your car, and the connections to the city are close by and get you to the centre in little time. The garage is not the cheapest, but compared to other sleeping accommodations it is also not too steep. The apartment itself has everything one needs for a short stay, and on top of it, it is cosy. The only minus are the beds, which are too soft.

The apartments were excellent, a much better choice than hotel rooms for us and the location was our main concern before arriving but not a problem at all. We were 1 stop from the airport and 1 stop from Amsterdam Central on the train, for which the station is directly opposite the apartment, a 5 min walk - no more. The staff couldn't have been friendlier, the only gripe would be that we reserved a 3-bed apartment and when we arrived they had none left so upgraded us to a large 2 bed room which was great and a studio room for 1 of the 3 couples. I would have complained but it didn't inconvenience us at all and everything else was spot on! We will definitely be staying again. Reading some of the other comments regarding food - yes there are various things in the vending machines in the apartment and there is a small convenience shop in the station - we were always eating out but if you plan to have meals in the apartment simply bring food with you.

This apartment is very accessible from the Amsterdam Centraal Station. It's just one stop from there. The surroundings are neat and silent. There is no particular outside noise that disturbed us during our stay.

The apartment itself was beautiful. We got a two bedroom apartment and the furnishing, appliances and decor that were provided were great. It was very spacious and has a complete set for kitchen and dining use.

The receptionist told us that since this was an eco-friendly apartment the hot water from the broiler only runs for 30 mins and the next hot water would be an hour after that. We had no problem with that. Even when the receptionists are not there 24/7, they can still be contacted during emergency and in case, of early check-out, they can provide you necessary instructions for that.

The apartments themselves are great. with the exception of too soft a bed, I have no complaints. However... the location... now there's a tricky one. It's ridiculously well located by Sloterdijk train station. Just one stop from Amsterdam Centraal in one direction and 10 mins from the Airport in the other, it couldn't be more conveniently placed. The trains run all night on weekdays and sill 2am a the weekend. A taxi from the centre is only 20 euros anyway. The problem we did have was the complete lack of anything else around there. the Train station is virtually the only sign of life. There are no convenience stores outside of the station's over-priced (and early closing) ones, so getting a little food or drink can be quite difficult if you don't plan way in advance. As I say... otherwise, no qualms at all with the place. go there, enjoy yourselves.

Room Tip: Studio apartments are plenty big enough for two people

Dear SheffRik,

Thank you for your review.
The Sloterdijk area is relatively a new district in Amsterdam. There are allot of plans and slowly the district is getting more vivid.

We hope to welcome you again in the future.
