“Couldn't be any better !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

I recently stayed here on the 4th October, i found that the hotel was really good for what we had we couldn't complain. I was just looking for a cheap break a hotel very clean just to accommodate me for the 3 nights.
The rooms where very basic but really clean, quite spacious and the facilities within the hotel where also very good. Didn't have a problem once except the fact sometimes quite hard to get sleep with the airport nearby but that would always be something to consider.
Another good thing was the free shuttle service that took you to the airport. These ran every 15 minutes and the service was really good, not once was they late or once have a problem. The only thing i would say is if you want to see the most of Amsterdam then probably spend a little more for the city centre hotels.
Overall for what i paid i can't complain, £35 for 3 nights that is a bargain! this met my requirements and was really happy! i would recommend this to anyone who wants a cheap break!

We spent 1 night here. Perfect free bus shuttle service. Fast check-in and out. Maybe it was our mistake, but could find only 1 tv channel. Clean room, shower, toilet. Quiet everywhere. Excellent for this price.

Stayed only one night since our flight didn't leave until the next morning. Decently priced, clean, close to airport and they provided a free shuttle. 24 hour front desk with a friendly English speaking staff. Fast check-in and check-out. Free WiFi but kept cutting out in the room and not so fast. They charge 7.5 Euro for b'fast which I opted out for something else at the airport. Room is very basic and looks like the pictures published. Clean which is a plus! Bath towels were smaller than average and unfortunately rough and thin. Shower was good but they don't provide a towel for the floor when you step out. I ended up using my dirty shirt. Bed was comfy enough for a budget hotel. No phone in the room but didn't mind it since it was an overnight stay. Small flat screen tv had English channels. Overall, happy with our stay and would return the next time I need to stay the night in Amsterdam!

I ended up there by mistake, as my reservation was for the other nearby Ibis. The room is very crowded and it has those horrible little claustrophobic boxes working as a toilet and a shower respectively. I guess if you are alone it is fine, but very uncomfortable for two (or more!!!) people. The price is really good though, especially given the hotel rates in Amsterdam. The free shuttle to/from the airport is great!

I mean my title in the nicest possible way, I wasn't expecting much from the cheapest hotel I could find at AMS but to the hotel's credit

+ I got a discount of 10% at the bar next door in the Ibis proper which was nice
+ Shuttle service was excellent and timely
+ Check in was efficient and friendly
+ Room was quirky but clean and quiet

I only stayed at the hotel for one night and had an early escape back to AMS for an onward flight to Frankfurt. So I "borrowed" a luggage trolley and just left it next to my bed all night.

All in all a happy and cheap stay, Thanks Ibis Budget @ AMS

I had read some reviews about the smelly drain in the shower and hoped that the problem had been solved by the time we would be staying there. Unfortunately it was not. The air smelt like dead rat. It was tolerable for one night, but only because we could open the window for some air. Fortunately there was not a lot of noise from the nearby road that night.

Definitely a budget hotel but okay for one night on a layover or early flight. You get what you pay for: hard bed, flat pillows and a tiny, basic room. The free wifi was a bonus, given it is budget, and it wasn't slow as one might expect either! I have to say though, that while the room was clean enough, it was not *that* clean. There was a collection of dust and grot forming on the baseboards by the bed.

We skipped breakfast, opting to have breakfast at Schiphol before our flight so I can't comment on that. The free airport shuttle was very handy and the drivers were friendly. Fast check-in and no need to check out given that you don't get a key, just a passcode on a paper for the room.

Acceptable price at €50 but in retrospect I should have just paid €20 more and gone to the Ibis next door, as I get more of a kick out of having a pleasant experience than saving a few bucks.

Room Tip: Ask for a room which doesn't reek like dead rat.
