“Excellent hotel in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Was staying with my student-daughter who was apt-hunting in Amsterdam. Great location and easy access to every part of Amsterdam (not just the tourist-centre) The bus from the airport stops just 2 min from the hotel. Was upgraded on arrival and had a brilliant room, incl all the little things that makes life easier; hooks for the towels, great reading lamps in bed and 2 good chairs beside the bed. Good breakfast, but a little too high priced as all hotel breakfasts are.
The staff was extremely professional, nice and caring. My daughter got ill during our stay and the staff was very helpful all the time. Our 3 nights stay turned out to be 4 nights, due to illness, and it was a good hotel to be in under the circumstances. Pharmacy, supermarket and ATM on the same block. The doctor they arranged was good and came within a short time.
We will probably visit Amsterdam frequently the next 2 yrs and will definitely use this hotel again and also recommend it to all others traveling to Amsterdam.
A very good hotel at a very good price! Thank you for all your help.

The brand new Hotel Espresso is a small, very affordable and well located property in Amsterdam Museum District, ideal for business trips or short city breaks.
The rooms are small but well furnished and the bathroom, equipped with a shower, has enough size for two. Overall cleanliness is good.
The employees are friendly and the breakfast is quite good for a 3 star hotel.
You can walk or get a tram to Amsterdam city center and the bus stop that connects the airport is at a five minute walking distance from the hotel. You can also find a convenient supermarket as well as many nice restaurants and coffe bars nearby.

This is a new hotel in Amsterdam. Paid £60 per night per room very reasonable. Rooms adequate size. All mod cons. Fairly dental on tram line. Took 10minutes walk to centre. Really impressed for price.

Room Tip: We asked for quiet room at back of hotel and was pleased with room 502 which was on top floor at bac...

Good location, calm and away of the crowds. Not exactly central but close enough to the center. Tram lines, Leidsplein and museum square in just a few min walk. It’s like an improved IBIS.
Despite being brand new, the room had already some downsides. Carpet was damaged and windows didn’t close properly and we could feel the cold entering the room. Traffic noise was also unpleasant. But I guess we got for what we pay for.

My boyfriend and I wanted a nice trip away and saw easyjet recommended expresso. What a right choice ! Calm ambience, so clean, breakfast was tasty, any queries about how to get places a map was given to you an drawn on for you. Couldn't do enough for us. Great location- just a bus ride away from the main sights, and the bus is right outside !
Can not praise the staff enough. It's a cracking place to stay.

The hotel was very good for the price we were all really impressed with how well it's presented, the perfect crash pad for the 3 nights we were over celebrating New Year. About 10 minutes walk from Leidseplein or you can easily jump on a tram. The hotel staff were very freindly and couldnt help assist us enough. The only critisism I have would be that our room was directly on the main road and bacause the tram line was just at the front door of the hotel made it very noisy in the mornings. Also there were no plug near any mirrors, for a girl this is important when doing my hair! All in all was an excellent stay and I would definitely stay there again for the price!

Room Tip: rooms at the front are nosier, ask for one at the back!

Dear guest, your positive feedback encourages my staff and me personaly. We appreciate your criticism so we can approve our service. Unfortunately you have slept in a room in the front of the hotel. If you mention next time you prefer a room on the back side we will arrange for that and I can assure you that you will sleep like a princess! Pls check our own website for special deals.

The room was very cramped however the decor was lovely. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was a bit bland, location was fine although a bit noisy at night because of the traffic. Hotel was a little over-priced.
