The fairly recent Holiday Inn Express shares the same building as the fully fledged Holiday which is great as you can access the good Holiday Inn restaurants and facilities. The hotel is ideally located for the Biljmer Arena and the modern business district. The rooms are modern clean and tidy and whilst nothing special they serve a purpose. The breakfast... More

Stayed here recently on a business trip and the hotel is in a great location for businesses near the arena. Had a lovely corner room which had windows on 2 sides and some great views. Really good air conditioning meant the outside heat had little impact on the temperature of the room. Comfy bed, decent pillows and a good duvet... More

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights on my second trip to Amsterdam. Hotel is well connected with nearest metro/train station, just 10 mins walk. Hotel staff at front desk is courteous and room size is fine according to European standard. I am IHG Gold member so they awarded me corner room on 13th floor. Room had a great... More

I stayed here for one night on a business trip in July 2016 and was generally impressed by the hotel. It shares the building with its sister Holiday Inn. The room was spotless and really modern. The wifi was free and pretty reliable. While there was only one pump at the bar, the beer was cold and clearly very well... More

Dear gilaandy, Thank you very much for your feedback. In Holiday Inn Express we serve a continental breakfast, unfortunately this doesn't contain hot items. For next time the adjoining Holiday Inn might be a good option for you, since they a Full American breakfast. We are looking forward welcoming you soon again in the 'Arena Towers'.

No problems with this hotel, easy to get to on the train from Airport and a short walk from the Arena Station. Was asked on check in if I was there for a concert at the Arena, when I said no I think I was moved to a higher floor (Maybe keeping me away from the party goers) which is... More

Located near the arena and just 7mins walk near the station a perfect hideout for people who like to stay away from the hustle bustle of the city but access it within a few minutes. The hotel has 2 towers, the holiday inn being less costly. The breakfast was fine.

Thank you for your feedback and thank you for sharing! It's correct that we are sharing the building with the 4-star Holiday Inn hotel. The Holiday Inn Express is a 3-star select service hotel en usually a bit cheaper than the Holiday Inn. We are looking forward welcoming you again in the 'Towers'.

Just a standard network hotel - nothing to say - but location 200 m from Arena and train is good. If you travel by car parking is not that cheap (EUR 25/d). Friendly staff. You can rent bicycles and reach city centre with 9 km ride.

This is a very big hotel, part of an international chain. The rooms are not very spacious, but they are clean. The bathroom as well. Unfortunately, the atmosphere is quite cold, the staff are distant and unfriendly (although they answear your questions promplty) and the services they provide and not at all personalised.

The hotel is within walking distance of Amsterdam Arena train and metro station, the Arena, and Heineken Music Hall. In the same building, a regular Holiday-Inn Hotel is located. You need to go to the second floor to reach the Express' reception. The rooms are small but adequate, good beds and bathroom. Small desk. Breakfast and internet are for free.... More
