“Perfect stay at surprising location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Spacious (executive) room with a bathroom having large windows to 2 sides of the building. Magnificent city view! Comfortable, clean room. Good (free) WiFi. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Also quick check-in and out routine. Good and complete breakfast for a reasonable price(€10) . Good parking facilities direct to the hotel, and also very reasonable (€12 a day in large (&safe) parking garage) Not directly to the center, but good public transportation is very close. The area can be intimidating for some. In the evening there are lot of groups of youngsters hanging around with a bit threatening attitude. But overall a very pleasant stay at location what's not called the best part of town.

Room Tip: Choose an executive room at one of the top floors. They are spacious and have magnificent views to...

Very dated rooms but very nice furniture. Beds were comfortable and it was clean. The bathroom was spacious and comfortable and clean. You get a nice view on the top floors. The neighbourhood is a bit creepy and full of suspect people but there is a little convenience store next door. I personally am not a fan of Deutsch food so that was a bonus. One member of staff was rude and very unhelpful but the rest were very nice. The tram stop is outside, number 14 tram takes you into central Amsterdam, conveniently for Anne Frank Huis. There is also a bus that takes you directly to the Main train station. I would not stay at this hotel again personally purely because of the rude staff member.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Reception was extremely friendly! Gave me lots of useful information for getting around Amsterdam. The room was compact with everything you could possible need. Had a really good nighrs sleep on the bed, extremely comfortable. The bathroom was clean and luxurious. Overall a great short stay. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are more spacious.

3,5 stars if possible

+ clean, comfy beds, good AC, pretty nice view on top floors
- lots of weird people in neighbourhood and hotel guests, check in en out process was slow due to one person staffing and answering calls first

Room Tip: get a room on higher floors, view is pretty good

Yes the Hotel is out of the centre, but only 15 - 20 mins on the Tram or Bus which are every 10 mins and you get to see more of the city too. The 3 day travel passes are great, get one from the Train station. Don't spend 40 euro's for airport transfer, get a train from the airport to Sloterdijk Railway station and then bus 15 to Bos en lommerplein (1 stop) - 6 euro's total, so simple and about 30 mins in total. The Hotel is very good, reception staff were all very helpful and nice. Rooms are spacious & clean, with dark rosewood furnishings which is different for a chain hotel. Worst thing about room & hotel is the temperature/air conditioning, won't go below 18 degrees! Asked for a fan at front desk which solved the problem! Breakfast was good and served up to 11, so no need to rush if you don't want to! Loads of shops and supermarkets in the local to if you need something. Safe area, even at night time! Would definately stay again if in the city.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet, but go high for a view of the city floor 7 - 9

We booked this hotel a week before our trip to Amsterdam. We were a group of 6 people and we booked our flights in the beginning of Jan. I didn't know that Holland has a bank holiday in the time of our trip. It was very difficult to find a good hotel in the reasonable price and distance. Blue Tower hotel was the best option and we were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. Receptionist was very professional and the rooms were very well organised and clean. We would definitely come back to this hotel.

We booked a triple and a double room for a group of 5, but ended up getting 2 triple bed rooms. Rooms were clean with desk, tea/coffee making facilities in room, aircon, hair dryer in bathroom. Towels changed, tea/coffee refilled everyday. Bathroom stocked with shampoo, showergel, soap. Refilled everyday. We were on second floor so not much in terms of views. If you would like rooms with views go for higher floors. there are good eateries locally open till late. The only downside is slightly outside of being central to Amsterdam. Overall though it was a comfortable stay.
