The only reason you would want to book this hotel is the location. The hotel is opposite the Main train station in the centre of Amsterdam and a 2 minute walk from the Red Light district, bars, restaurants and museums. The actual booking was not cheap and we were also told we had to pay a city tax upon arrival.... More

At the time of my reservation via booking.com the owner took from my credit card the full amount of reservation. When we arrive they didn’t give us a double room but a twin room, saying that an other room was not available. The room was small with cheap furniture and no fridge. The bathroom (see photo) was modest with a... More

This hotel is in a good location just opposite the station. I made a booking for my son and his girlfriend using an agency but they made a mistake and made the same booking twice. To his credit the Assistant Manager noticed the mistake and emailed me immediately. The hotel is fine, ignore the negative comments. Rooms and breakfast good... More

A-train hotel in Amsterdam has an excellent location just opposite the central train station. Besides the vicinity of the railway station which is quite practical if you take a train from the airport or want to travel away from Amsterdam, there are main tram stops, canal cruises start from here or there are quite a lot of tourist offices nearby.You...

The hotel theme is the TRAIN. You can see the railway tracks as you are at the lobby while checking in. There is also the luggages which bring back memories of the 50's or 60's. My dad used that type before. There is nice breakfast & friendly staff too. It was such a coincidence that I stayed at the same... More

Stayed in the A Train hotel while visiting Amsterdam with my daughter. The hotel is conveniently situated opposite the main railway station. The hotel has a railway theme - including tracks in the flooring to the dining room. The dining room is styled as a railway buffet car and there was a good choice at breakfast. Our room was clean...

We stayed at the A-Train for 1 night. We arrived at about 12.30pm and appreciated our room being ready for early checkin. The room and bedroom were clean enough. Although not sure about the cleaners attention to detail as there was food leftover in the fridge. The staff were friendly and the hotel was well located, perfect for 1 night... More

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.

The A-Train Hotel is a unique 3 star hotel with a train-theme. It is ideally located in front of the Central (Railway) Station, right in the beating heart of Amsterdam. Shopping areas, tourist attractions, pubs, restaurants, theaters, are all within walking distance. All 34 rooms are comfortably furnished and have modern bathrooms with a hair-drier and are equipped with radio, satellite TV with pay TV, safe, work desk, direct-dial telephone with wake-up system and FREE WIFI. The hotel has a lift, a luggage store room and 24 hours check in. An easy chair, coffee and tea making facilities, fridge and a great view off the Central Station are the extras in our 4 excellent 'First class rooms', also very suitable for business guests. 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". We aim to please with an informal atmosphere and are looking forward to see you soon in our hotel. ... more   less
