“Excellent Choice for a Visit to Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

I stayed at this property 27 to 31 December 2013 and was very pleased with all aspects of my experience as a guest here.

Others have mentioned that the rooms are a bit smaller than what we typically have in the USA but they are well laid out and comfortable. The free, high speed, wifi is a bonus as many hotels in Europe charge (alot!) for.

The free breakfast is excellent and offers much more than what is typically served at Hamptons in the USA. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the property.

Every staff member with whom I interacted was friendly, courteous and extremely helpful, as well as multilingual. The folks at the front desk are always happy to provide advice on how to use the local Metro, see the sights, etc. Transit passes are available for sale at the front desk, which are a big bargain vs. the cost of individual rides on the trams, buses and subways.

You can save a lot of money on you trip by staying here vs. a comparable hotel in the center of Amsterdam. There is a large rail/metro station just a short walk from the hotel and the trip to Centraal Station is only about 15 minutes on Metro line 54, from which you can easily transfer to a tram, bus or boat/ferry.

The only drawback to staying here, in my experience, is that the hotel shuttle bus service from Schipol Airport does not serve the property. You could take the train to/from the airport, but that might be difficult if you lots of luggage. In that case, your only other option is to take a taxi, which costs somewhere between 50 and 55 euros each way.

I would gladly stay at this property again!

A great value hotel for a family break in Amsterdam with two small children (aged 2 and 5). Easily located on the train line to both the airport and the city centre, a great value buffet breakfast and lots of local eating options for a family budget.

Located 50 yards from the train station, right in the center of an entertainment complex including the Arena, multiplex movie theater, music halls, etc. Lots of stores and shops. Restaurants of all kinds. Hotel itself is well-furnished. Beds are of very high quality. Bathroom was clean and efficient with excellent shower. Very quiet despite being in such a hub of activity.

We had a splendid time at this hotel. The rooms are comfortable, quiet and clean, and the beds are huge and have boxsprings, also there is free wifi. Breakfast was good and the staff was very kind and helpfull. The Hotel is situated near the Amsterdam Arena, the Heineken music hall, Ziggo dome and station. So if you like football or a concert this is the place to be.
I would surely go again.

This is a new hotel located in a business district, also right next to the Bijlmer metro station. Modern hotel, large rooms, very clean and polite staff. I arrived early twice and each time they managed to offer a room, even though the check-in time was only a couple of hours later. Breakfast offers good variety. I tried to have dinner in the hotel but the restaurant was not open in the evening. Instead, I went to a Turkish restaurant nearby (not too many choices other than this), which is very good and offers both Turkish specialties and pizza. This is not a very lively neighborhood at night and also not completely safe and the center is quite far away. But you can take the metro to the Center of the city, in about 15-20 mins you'll be there.

It is 100% what you would expect.I have stayed here twice now 2 months apart and as it is only 6 months old it is what you would want from a global chain - clean, comfortable, good staff, good breakfast, quiet room, OK TV choice, free wi-fi. It is also good value and handy for the offices, Arena, station etc

This is an excellent choice for a family of 4 like us. New,modern hotel and a huge room. Breakfast for everyone's taste. The stuff was service minded and always polite. The only dtawback is that is far from the centre of Amsterdam but the metro station is right next to the hotel. We would definitely go back in the future and we recommend it to everyone.
