Having stayed at other Best Western Hotels across Europe and Asia, my husband and I were expecting the same exceptional customer service standards from the Blue Square Best Western. Unfortunately, we encountered a series of issues which have led us to conclude that we would never stay here again. 1. No hand towels, floor towel or bath mats. We rang... More

Just back from a 4 day break to the Blue Square. Lovely clean hotel with pleasant staff. Hotel is a good bit away from the city centre but the no 14 tram runs every 15 minutes or so, tickets are available from the hotel reception.

I was doubtful about staying outside the city but this hotel was worth the additional travel. Take the number 69 bus from the airport about 30 mins transfer and it will drop you about 2 mins from the door, you can't miss the hotel it is what it says it is, Blue and Square! A lovely welcome from staff in... More

I stayed at this hotel in January and thought it was brilliant. The airport new exactly what bus we needed to take to get straight the the hotel and it's no more than 3 euros. It's about a 20 minute ride. The hotel itself is very clean and tidy and the staff are extremely helpful. If you simply ask them... More

We stayed here last May for 3 nights and found the stay good. The room was comfortable and clean and the staff at the reception desk were very helpful. The hotel is not close to the city and the main sights but the tram links are good so that was not too much of a problem. There is a bus... More

A 20 minute tram-ride to Dam square, but good value. Clean rooms, very good breakfast and helpful friendly staff members. It's worth while to pack up for day trips into the city, as the ride to the hotel and back is not a simple skip, but the city is very easy to get around, so that proved like a lot... More

We got this hotel as part of an Easyjet package & we were pleasantly surprised. Good size room & facilities, and staff were great, very helpful & approachable! Only downside is location. It's about 25 mins on tram to centre of Amsterdam and about the same to the airport. But travel passes can be picked up fairly cheaply & used... More
