“best 4* hotel between airport and city centre!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

It was our 1st trip to Amsterdam, so we didn't know nothing how to get from one place to another... so we asked some friendly locals and they pointed us to the 195 bus... we got down at IBM station... Artemis hotel it's nice placed into a business park... despite our early arrival they made a warm welcome and give us the room... The service was fantastic... Staff very helpfull... Big, clean, nice and cosy room... Easy to travel from the hotel, you have almost the same distance towards centre or to the airport... In front of the hotel you can take a free bus until the metro station.
We've enjoyed our staying and we're gonna come back with pleasure.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Caught the 195 from the airport plaza. Locals very friendly and pointed us in right direction € 4 each. Driver pointed out the Artemis no problem.

We were made very welcome on arrival and despite arriving very early were allocated a room quickly. Was informed about the city tax of about €50, wasn't informed that we'd be charged € 3.50 City tax per night on top of this. Not the hotels fault that the city wants its cut.

The room was twin beds and very quiet and comfortable. When we first arrived I noticed a few problems in the bathroom but the staff rectified these by the time we returned from exploring Amsterdam. Room was cleaned well.

The hotel is some distance from the centre. But we paid for a 72 hr travel card
Which meant we could use trams, buses etc. this cost about €36 for two of us. Trams and buses very regular so made it very easy to hop on and off. Never waited more than a few minutes. It was a little annoying to be so far out of the centre, especially as we'd asked last minute . Com for a central hotel, but the exercise made us feel good , despite the freezing cold winds during our stay.

Didn't bother with breakfast .. As we felt €19 each was expensive. Had a meal on our final night and it was good. Indonesian was tasty and reasonable price for what we got.

We enjoyed our stay overall . The art was interesting. Service good. Staff helpful.

We decided 3 days exploring the city was enough and headed to Haarlam for our last day. Caught the 195 back to the airport and then the 300 to Haarlam. Bought a family travel day ticket as this was the cheapest option suggested by the driver.
Worth the effort despite the small blizzard !

The rooms were very clean and very quiet, the hotel staff wee helpful and spoke very good English. The restaurant was fine but pricey for what you got. All in all had this hotel been in the centre of the city I would have been delighted.
We booked this through last minute.com as a mystery hotel but specified we wanted a central hotel, we were assured it was!
It was a 20 minute tram ride out of town on a science park with no local amenities.
The tram was a short walk away but came every few minutes. Having bought a three day ticket it didn't cost any more to do as many trips as we wanted but after a day sightseeing it was not practical to pop back to the hotel before a night on the town.
If you're happy with public transport and organised to go out and stay out, then this might be the hotel for you

This was a nice hotel and the rooms were reasonably priced. But expect to travel 25-30 minutes to get to the centre of Amsterdam. Both Tram and Metro are a 8 minute walk and then it's another 15 to 25 minutes into the centre (depending on connection).
The hotel itself is neat and tidy and the staff is efficient and nice. The food in the hotel and the bar are very expensive indeed and should be avoided if possible. There are no restaurants and or shops nearby as the hotel is located in a office/business park.

Nice clean hotel. Room was good value. Bit of a trek into Amsterdam center but public transport is very good. Didn't eat in hotel so can't comment but breakfast was priced at €18.50, you'll get cheaper in center.

A lovely hotel with friendly staff. We ate in the restaurant first night, the food and service was very good but the drinks a little overpriced, but this is what you expect in an hotel. Breakfast has quite a good choice with a hot selection and lovely breads.
The rooms are really clean and nicely decorated with big comfy beds.
This hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the tram which takes you right into Amsterdam and all the sights, for just a couple of euros... Buy a daily ticket or if you're staying longer buy a multi day ticket. Cabs are around £30 euros and are easy to find.
We enjoyed being away from the noise of the city and the travelling in was safe and quick.
Visit la klas on platform 2 at central station for a lovely old back in time place serving cream topped hot chocolate (with brandy) and its not too busy that you can't get a seat, staff are really friendly and accommodating too.
All in all a lovely stay at the artemis, made better by the friendly people of Amsterdam.

The hotel was a bit out of the way in terms of the city attractions. It is a 10 minute walk to the tram and then a 18 minute tram ride. The reception staff was very helpful and courteous. Breakfast was meant to be included in our rate - only for us to get there and find out that for some reason it wasn't! Which was a bit annoying. The cleaning staff tend to just make the bed and clean the toilet - nothing else (tidy and wipe surfaces, sink etc) - Don't know if thats a European thing? The hotel itself is quite comfortable.
