“Handy for the RAI conference centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

Good base if you are attending a conference at the RAI - it's about 10 minutes walk away.

Perfect location if you have office near WTC. Has all facilities like Gym, Bar and Wifi access. The rooms are bit cramped but has space for one person if on business. Has great selection in the minibar and has a good restaurant. Staff are friendly and very service minded. Have stayed here most of my time whilst on business. Also great transport location if you want to go to city via tram. 20 - 30 mins

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the second or third floor as it gets pretty busy in the mornings.

We booked this hotel on the ground that it would be less noisy and less expensive than a canalside B&B in Amsterdam, and seeing as we'd stayed in Novotels before, we knew the standard of hotels in this chain were good. After reading a couple of reviews on here we were a little apprehensive but the whole hotel turned out to be of an excellent standard. The bedrooms were extremely clean with spacious desk, bathroom and TV, ultra-comfortable bed and no noise problems whatsoever - and good value at just over 100 euros/night The door was heavy (3 layers of wood) and with a mechanical lock meaning that security levels in the rooms were top notch. There is also a large cupboard space and minibar, though we didn't use the latter. Breakfast is really expensive at 22.50 euros each but every day we headed straight into town and had breakfast in cafes at much cheaper prices (I can recommend the "l'Opera" on Rembrandtplein and the "Cobra" on Museumplein for breakfast cafe options). Staff are friendly (although the only time we were in contact with them was when checking in and out so can't make a broad comment on customer service really). The hotel is a little out of the centre of town but literally 2 minutes walk from a big public transport interchange (RAI) which is served by tram line 4 taking 15-20 minutes to the centre and metro lines 50 and 51 taking no more than 10 minutes to/from city centre (both metro lines and the tram also take you to/from central station) and national rail services taking you direct to/from Schipol airport but not to the centre. Not good if you want to walk everywhere but we found it no problem at all taking a short public transport journey in every day (and if you buy an I Amsterdam city discount card as we did, the transport is included in the price anyway). If you're leaving the city by train from Central Station but don't want to come all the way back to the hotel to pick up your luggage you can leave it in the large left luggage facility there is in Central Station as we did, and only costs a couple of euros per locker. Overall this hotel is excellent for a visit to Amsterdam, whether it be for buisness or leisure, super-clean, no noise problems and good public transport links, and can recommend to everyone.

Room Tip: Try and ask for room 1410 on the top floor (the one we stayed in) - absolutely zero problems with no...

This hotel offers great value for the money. Only 2 stops (10 minutes) by train from Schiphol International airport. 15 minutes from downtown by tram no 4. Both tram and railway are a block away from the hotel. Hotel is clean and very modern. Staff is very professional.

While beyond the central tourist district, Novotel City is ideal for business travelers attending conferences at the RAI (5 minutes walk). Across the street from the large Amstel Park on the Southern edge of the ring road (Ringweg Zuid) the hotel easy to reach from Amsterdam Central train station directly on Tram line 4 or the Metro (Amsterdam RAI station). Large clean rooms with all the standard Novotel features including wifi (free with Executive room packages). Breakfast prices are a bit steep unless you can fully enjoy the large buffet (which few business travelers have time or stomach for, even though weekend tourists and families might enjoy such an offering). A quick hop on the tram and you are in the centre of the canal district. I have tried others while on business, but several stays here confirm it to be a good value option outside of the tourist zone, with the savings going toward dinner at De Kas.

I visited this hotel for a conference. I was really impressed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food served at breakfast was wonderful--fresh, healthy options, lots of choices. As a business venue, it seemed great. There were no problems with AV support, coffee and treats at break times were very nice, the rooms were the right size for the various different meeting events. I'm not sure about value as I don't know pricing in the area very well. But my experience was great. Accessible by Connexxion (spelling?) shuttle (I arranged this from the travel info booth at the airport) or by train (RAI station). About 30 minute pleasant tram ride into Amsterdam tourist areas.
