“GREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

It's great for a hotel of its category. I loved it! The view from the windows, the breakfast :) , the rooms... The only problem is the extremely slow elevator... But apart that it's fantastic! The zone in which the hotel is located is great, too.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family

Hotel ibis styles Amstel, stadhouderskade 131, amsterdam is a completly renovated hotel in the city centre about 15 minutes by foot from the Stedelijk Museum and the Rijksmuseum. Be aware that here is another Ibis Styles hotel at number 135, so this review only concerns Ibis Styles Amstel. The hotel was reopened in (December?) 2013 after it is placed in the management of the Accor Group. It is located opposite one of Amsterdam’s many canals and in short distance from the river Amstel. There is a good connection with the Central Train station (tram number 4, two minutes from the hotel) and with other important places to visit. You enter the hotel via a short staircase (I am not sure that there is an elevator). In the lobby you will find a drinks vending machine and the desk. There is only a breakfast room downstairs, so you cannot have lunch or dinner which does not matter at all because there are several restaurants nearby. There is a small parking near the hotel.
Check in/check out went very smoothly and staff is very kind and helpful.
We asked for a quiet room and we got one (105). It is a medium seized room, very well decorated and it has a double bed with excellent mattresses. Opposite the bed there is a large LCD TV with a lot of channels in different languages. There is a linen cupboard with a safe in it, and a long work surface with tea/coffee facilities on it. A small negative point is the poor lighting of the work surface. The room has textile floor coverings. There is no fridge or minibar, but a very well working air-conditioner. The room is very well soundproofed and our room had a view on the small parking place. The bathroom is not large but very well equipped (soap, shampoo, hairdryer) with an excellent working shower. There even is a safety grip at the wall. Although not necessarily, towels are changed every day. Room and bathroom are impeccable clean.
The warm and cold breakfast buffet is very good and is included in the price of the room. There are several kinds of bread, meat and cheese products, fresh fruit, Greek yoghurt and cereals. Coffee is really good.
We were able to take advantage of a special offer (118,65 euro for two nights including breakfast), but even at the normal rate, the hotel is very recommendable because of its good quality.
Personal note: as this is my 100th review on Tripadvisor, I am glad to offer you a positive one.

We have stayed 5 nights at this hotel in October 2013.
My spouse and I really enjoyed the location. Although it
is on a busy thoroughfare, it remains outside rush hours a very quiet
pleace to be. The room was perfect and clean. The tram #4 is almost next door and with the Iamsterdam card, we were able to travel all around. It is walking distance from the Utrechtsestraat where you can find all kind of very good restaurants. The breakfast downstairs is very good and it starts well a day of walking!! One very negative aspect: the staff. Apart from one lady, you feel like you disturb all the others!!!. No welcome, just hi or hello !!!! very cold minded staff at the front desk. Even on the verge of being arrogant I would go back because of location but I hope they change all their staff !!!

We stayed there for 5 nights during the the holiday period. We had a couple of special requests regarding the room and these were fulfilled when we checked in. The hotel was full but the service was excellent and the staff very friendly. The breakfast was nice with a good variety offered and the Internet was fast in the room so overall great value for money considering that these are included in the price. The room is not large but very clean and comfortable. The tram stations are just a couple of mins walk and from there you can go everywhere in the city. The other positive thing is that the hotel is located in a nice quiet area overlooking the canal but still close to the center. The lift was a bit slow especially during breakfast time and the stairs are steep but this is typical in all houses and most of the hotels in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the canal.

the staff was really the best staff in any hotels I ever stayed in. Made us really feel at home. The rooms were a bit on the small side but really great beds. The breakfast was excellent and had no regrets. One of the only hotels I have been in that the house keeping doesn't come knocking on your door in the morning and waking you up with a fright.

Really clean rooms and good service. Not really walking distance to anything but Close to a tram stop. The stairs in the hotel are terrible. Steepest ones I have ever seen but there is a lift. Apart from that its a great place to stay.
