“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

First time I'm trying this hotel. It is physically connected to the Amsterdam Arena train station that is very well connected to Schipol (there is also a bus connection to Schipol with bus 300). The hotel inside is very new, room are nice and everything looks very recent. It doesn't have a restaurant though walking distance there are nice restaurants, a movie theater and the football stadium. There is a fitness room and breakfast has everything needed.

OK - if you're expecting a five star Hilton hotel you won't get this but the staff are exceptionally friendly, efficient and courteous and for this is more important when away from home for long periods.

Only downside for me is the lack of variety at breakfast.

Five of us stayed here on our Amsterdam weekend break. Immaculately clean hotel with good sized bedrooms. Breakfast included in price which was self service and you could have choice of juices, cereals, meats, cheese, scrambled eggs, bacon & sausages. Also bread rolls, croissants, cakes & fresh fruit. A good start to the day. Hotel straight outside train station and only 12 mins to centre of Amsterdam at a cost of 5.40euros return. Some shops and restaurants on your doorstep. Ideal getting to from airport. Get the intercity train platform 1 to Arena Boulevard approx 15mins, single cost 4.20euros. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again if back in Amsterdam.

I stay at this hotel on business reasonably regularly. It's next to the Amsterdam Arena which is a couple of stations from Schipol on the Intercity (c€4) and 10 stations from the centre of Amsterdam on the metro (c€4). The hotel gets some criticism for it's location, it's next to a station from which you can reach most places easily, there's a large shopping centre and plenty of places to eat. It should be noted that it's very quiet at night once the shops and the businesses are closed. As for the hotel, the welcome is one of the best I have had in the world, on my last 2 stays Marise has been efficient, friendly, polite with a big smile, so thank-you for that. The rooms are standard business fayre, with hair dryer, ironing board, comfy beds, and an easy to use TV (Engish TV chanels are limited to BBC1/2/World only). There's a good free breakfast on site, but no evening restaurant in the hotel. There's a nice bar / lobby to sit in with a pretty dull view! All in all a good business hotel, good staff, and one that I'll be staying at a lot!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the front of the hotel unless you enjoy views of a car park!

Have slept here on Christmas night. What i like about this hotel is the cleanness of the room and the superb beds.
Location is good, because next to the trains and subway to city centre. In around 7 minutes you find yourself in the center of Amsterdam.
Price very affordable comparing to so many hotels in the center.
If you do not mind a short drive with public transport you can not have a better room in Amsterdam!

The staff was exceptionally helpful and never bothered to assist or answer questions. They helped us figure out the trams and made suggestions on where to shop and eat and best routes to take. Breakfast was very good and free!! Wifi was faster than anticipated, also free in room. We looked for a hotel w/ close parking, breakfast and free wifi, we found it and MORE. Worth the price! We look forward to staying here again when our family visits and we make a 2nd trip to Amsterdam. Clean rooms and restrooms. Great location. Metro is a 3 min walk.

This hotel is a 5 minute walk from my office so perfect for me in terms of location. A 10 to 15 minute direct trip from the airport by train.
Very good value for money with free wifi and great looking (I didn't actually taste it as I am not so much a breakfast person).
Beds were comfortable.
Cleaning wasn't quite up to standard, with my towel being taken on the first morning and not being replaced and a used glass from the first day being there for my whole stay.
Nothing really to worry about and overall a nice stay with very friendly staff.
