Really what we were looking for was a hotel close to the station. This certainly is, plus it looked like a fun place to stay. Although Jay at reservations felt we may need the use of the luggage room as we had a number of cases, and he warned us the rooms were not huge we found them fine by... More

The A-train hotel is conveniently located near the Central station. You can actually see it as you step out of the station. Nothing fancy about this hotel but it was very decent. We booked a family room which was split over two levels: a double bed on the lower level and two separate beds on the upper level accessible by... More

We have stayed at the A-Train Hotel for 4 nights recently. It is located at 2 minutes walk from the Amsterdam Central Station and the main tram junction in town. The first amazing surprise is the beatiful pictures on Indian trains you can find at the entrance and all sort of curious items related with trains decorating the lounge. It's... More

Location is everything and this hotel has it. It's very close to Amsterdam Central station. We were able to take the train from the airport which was about a 20 minute ride and much cheaper then taking a taxi. ( the train was right beneath the airport ) The trams to every location were less then a 5 minute walk... More

The best thing about the hotel is the proximity to the station and that's why I chose it. The room was decent but to get into the room from the corridor I needed to climb 3 very narrow spiral stairs - how peculiar! Good wifi but breakfast was very limited. Stay here if you love trains or want to stay... More

Dear ddbbtraveler, Sorry you were not completely satisfied with the amazing A-Train hotel? We have elevators in both buildings, with which you can reach every floor? We only have two spiral staircases in use as emergency exit staircases! We serve our COMPLIMENTARY continental breakfast buffet from 07.00 to 10.00am and it consists of: · White, dark and raison bread, toaster... More

Went to Amsterdam with two friends and stayed at A Train. Staff were very helpful. The hotel is clean, comfortable and well located for the train station and Dam Square. Also, it only takes 20 mins on the train to get to the airport. Good value for money, would definitely stay again.

conveniently placed for Centraal Station, Dam SQ. etc., but on arrival I was shown to a 1st floor room (107) which I can only describe as a cupboard! but when I said I could not sleep in this hot, airless room, I was very kindly shown to a 2nd floor room (207) which was marginally better.

First of all we are sorry you were disappointed in our hotel. We are a 3* hotel in located in 4 monumental buildings and of course our standard room sizes are smaller than in 4/5* star hotels. If you look at our pictures, you will see that our rooms are relatively small, we have nothing to hide. All 34 rooms... More

This hotel is right across the street from Amsterdam Central Station. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated - has a private bathroom with a shower. Breakfast is served in train themed restaurant in the morning. Friendly staff and helpful. Walking distance to everything you need.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

For special occasions we have the 'Old Dutch Suite' with a small private garden/patio. Furthermore smoking and non-smoking rooms and 2 excellent family rooms. No two rooms are alike in our surprising train-themed hotel! All major public transport lines operate from the Central Station, only 15-20 minutes from Schiphol Airport, RAI and WTC. There is an (expensive) underground public parking opposite the A-Train Hotel. Cheap parking, from €10,- per 24 hours at 5 minutes walk from the hotel.. The A-Train Hotel is a cozy hotel, run by Jos and Erika Heijnsdijk and manager Ali Hassan and will be a comfortable place to stay during your tourist or business visit and will make you feel like "Home away from Home".
