Excellent hotel, truly good value for money. I'm 18 and stayed here late Jan 14 with my boyfriend for 4 nights and it was an excellent base from which to explore the city. The trams and buses are frequent and very easy to use, going fairly late into the night for those of you who are also keen to sample the nightlife!
Kind and welcoming staff, good breakfast, clean room although the windows were very dirty- a shame because we had a nice view of the canal.
I would (and have!) recommended this hotel to a friend- do not be put off by its distance from the centre!

We stayed for 4 days in November, we arrived in the evening and took the bus directly from the airport to the hotel, buying our 4 day travel tickets from the tourist information centre in the airport. We were worried about missing our stop but after about 10-15 minutes on the bus we saw our hotel, not hard to miss because it's big and blue) and got off at the stop just around the corner.
The staff were friendly and helpful, providing us with a map of amsterdam and an information sheet on which trams to take to get to different sites. Our room was a nice size, clean, with nice toiletries and an in-room safe. We had breakfast each morning (its cheaper if you pre-book it at reception the night before) There was plenty provided, both hot and cold and there is something to suit everyone, definitely enough to fill us up before a day of sightseeing.

What a fantastic stay we had, on arrival the reception staff were ready to help straight away and gave us information and maps on the local area and what we could do. The were on the first floor in a three bed room facing the lake and it was beautiful to wake up to every morning. The room was tidy and spacious and had everything you needed only downside is that we now find our own bed a massive disappointment because the beds at blue square were so unbelievably comfortable you just sank into them and had a great nights sleep. 2 English channels on tv which was great. They gave us new towels, toiletries and toilet roles in a bag every day as we put the do not disturb sign on to enjoy a sleep in. We didn't use the restraunt at night but we did have breakfast included in our stay which I think was pretty good don't get me wrong the bacon and sausages ect isn't your full English but I guess your in a different country you shouldn't expect it, anyway I got by just fine on the croissants, muffins and jam on toast. All in all this was a fantastic stay in Amsterdam made by the hotel being so comfy and friendly. Ideal location for a 15 minute tram ride into Amsterdam. Quiet and laid back atmosphere but with elegance and class aswell.

Room Tip: Rooms at back have lake view and waking up to the sun on the lake in the morning is beautiful. Triple room was huge.

Located around 20 minutes from City Centre by tram, hotel was modern and comfortable the rooms were large and clean. We opted to book breakfast on our two night stay after reading reviews, slightly disappointed with the hot buffet option simply because it wasn't hot more luke warm however the continental option was extensive so all in all was good value. We have stayed in several Great Western Hotels and they never fail to offer good value for money.
