We stayed here for 3 nights whilst we visited Amsterdam for a 21st birthday. The metro and train station were a short 3 minute walk which meant getting the train to and from airport was so easy and hassle free and getting the metro into central was fast and easy. We brought a 3 day ticket where you could travel...

We chose this hotel because we runned out of time and we wanted something cheap with breakfast included. It is not close to the centre, but is at 10 min from the metro and in 15 min you can go to Centraal Station. The room was clean, not so big, but ok and the bathroom was clean with a big...

It’s a new Hotel with small rooms, air-condition very silent, but no Minibar or drinks on the room. Good working WLAN no registration needed. Breakfast is not the best all very budget and the Coffee was horrible. There is a Starbucks in main reception of the Holiday inn, this helps. Staff very friendly but check in/out takes to long

We found this to be a comfortable hotel near shopping and a lot of good restaurants. We especially enjoyed the Easy Fresh Falafal restaurant near the Bijlmerplein train station (a 5 minute walk). The free breakfast offered at the hotel had a lot of variety and the hotel room was clean and modern. Staff were personable and helpful. We would...

So, first things first, if you are choosing this hotel but you are spending a weekend in Amsterdam, not that the location isn't in the city and could be a pain if you just want to hang out there. However, transport into the city is easy and cheap. Saying that though, for my reason of being there, location was perfect....

We stayed here as part of our Cosmos tour. Excellent hotel, very comfortable and everything we needed. Was a shame we only stayed one night, would have been perfect for longer. Breakfast and Wifi included, a great spot to stay.
