“Good apartment. Awful location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Close to transport - train, bus and trams but the location is an urban waste land and like something out of Mad Max. Apartment is good - clean and comfortable. Ok if you are looking to visit outside Amsterdam or travel but does not really give you a good feel of Amsterdam.
It feels quite isolated and security is something to consider.

We were not disappointed in our choice of lodging.The building presents itself well, the staff is very helpful, and we had secure underground parking. It is easy to find and about 15 minutes from the airport. It is a little ways out from the main canal district and there really is no "Harbor view) but it is two blocks from the large Sloterdijk train station. Next to the station is the bus station and you can either purchase a day or multiple day pass or use the train. The train is E$1.80/trip or $5.00/day and takes about 5 minutes. The bus is very cheap and takes about 12 minutes. Our apt. was a two bedroom and had all the amenities that you would need and comfortable beds. One note the pictures must have been taken with a wide angle lens as the apartments are not as large as they seem on the web but they are still a good bargain.

Room Tip: Try to get the highest floor possible and a rear facing room for quiet if you want to open your wind...

Great apartments easy access from airport and Amsterdam city centre. Comfortable beds and fantastic price for the hotel. Will definitely return to use your apartments again. Roughly cost just over 20euros to city centre or just pay 3.10euros by train which takes 5mins.

two bedroom apartment with two bathrooms was clean and spacious with good quality furnishings and quite modern. The decor is quite funky but certain aspects such as glass tables are not ideal for kids. The location is not so central but the trains are so easy and quick. Service was friendly and very helpful providing useful information. I would recommend this hotel

Fantastic appartment close by all mods of transport, 10 min only two stops from the Airport, you have choise of Bus / Tram / Metro to take you into the city centre, (or train which only takes 6mins one stop) not much else in the area but nothing is to far away, the staff were very helpfull with locating place to go, wish we had longer than the 3 days but will 100% comeback any stay again.

(Only one issue would be the garbage room, it smell when you walk by)

The apartments are spacious, clean and well equipped. Literally minutes walk from train station and 1 stop from Amsterdam Central, with trains running regularly all day (never had to wait more than 15 mins for a train) The staff were friendly and helpful and when we asked for direction they kindly printed off train and bus times for us. Would defiantly stay here again...oh and beds very comfy!

The only reason why I don't use the maximum rate is the fact that the building is not in the centre of the city, but it is not a fault. The station is 3 min walking and in a while you are in Amsterdam. The reception is very clean and the staff is very kind and helpful in at least four different languages. The apartment was very big with 3 bedrooms, 3 toilets, a kitchen and a living with sofas and sat tv. Everything was clean and the dishwasher was equipped with 2 tabs. From the 7th floor you have a wonderful sightseeing. The first supermarket is not very near but you can reach it by bus in a few minute. It is perfect for families more than young couples. Sure it will be my house if we'll come back to Amsterdam.
