We arrived in amsterdam by car and the underground parking is very secure and convenient. Staff at the check-in was very friendly and they gave us good guidance on how to travel from the hotel to the city. The location of the hotel is not good at all. No restaurants whatsoever around. However, it's very easy to commute by tram...

Of our trip to Europe, which includes Paris, Zurich, Stockholm, Venice, Rome, Florence and Amsterdam, the stay in BEST WESTERN Blue Square Hotel is the best and very convenient. This hotel is very much near to public transportation and there is a straight bus to Airport. The rooms are of good size, clean & comfortable and the bathroom and shower...

The hotel itself is literally a big blue square, not picturesque and the area it is in is not the nicest. No good restaurants or cafes nearby, either had to make do with the poor quality restaurant in the hotel itself, or go on the tram to the city centre. The rooms were clean, but small. Served the purpose as...

We stayed here for 3 nights. It's location is decent as we didn't pay for a taxi once in Amsterdam, we got the bus to and from the airport and the bus/tram in to amsterdam everyday. As for the hotel it's cheap and cheerful really. The staff are helpful and pleasant and the rooms are tidy but a bit dated...

I chose this hotel for its proximity to Sloterparkbad where I was attending an event. As a seasoned traveller, I researched everything from accessibility, distance to city centre, transport, previous reviews and best price via various search engines and websites before booking. This hotel is a good mid-range chain hotel situated in a residential area with very good transport connections...

Stayed there a couple nights earlier this month. Did stay a few years ago and that was better. Service was average, room was decent, but far over priced for what it was. Breakfast was a winner though.

We enjoyed our stay on our last night in Europe. The rooms are average hotel size, the bathroom spotless, and shower huge. The hotel has a sleek feel, but could benefit from an outdoor space. The amenities were top quality and a nice touch. I booked this hotel with my BW points and the breakfast was included, a very nice...

We stayed with a family of 5 and found this to be a a very good hotel and great value for Amsterdam. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and good sized. The hotel location is outside of the city center, but the tram stop is just up the street and it is an easy tram ride...
