Okay, so it's a bit out of the way in a weird rubbly part of town. DOESN'T MATTER! For comparison, I will tell you about my and my fiancé's experience here and at another hotel in the middle of town. The middle of town hotel had the feel of a tourist dump catering to the hoi polloi whereas this hotel feels like a sleek getaway. Every detail is CUTE. :)

My fiancé and I are young, urban people in the music industry. Fashion Hotel treated us like special guests, they were kind from the get-go. The hotel in the center whose name I won't mention? I got the feeling they gave us a room off to the side just for the looks of us, asked us if they could see our room keys, and didn't file our special "extra person" fee and in dealing with it, we ended up missing our last opportunity to go to the zoo.

Fashion hotel is clean, cute, and SEXY! Well-designed, thoughtful, upscale but inviting. I loved it, and on our second Amsterdam vacation we often woefully thought of it. :)

This is a new hotel that provides modern, upscale rooms for a good price. It puts on a good breakfast and has good conference facilities. The main issue is the location.

The hotel makes a good first impression. A proper four-star. The reception staff were efficient, helpful and flexible. The décor in the hotel is based on “fashion”, so I guess you could call it “upscale funky”. Lots of bold colours.

We loved the room. Fairly spacious, well lit, modern, new-looking, clean. Big comfortable bed. Interesting fabrics and design. Modern, luxury bathroom, with separate WC. Lots of closet space & counter space. Excellent coffee-making facilities, fridge, ironing board.

Our room did not have an interesting v iew, but then we were on a lower floor. Quiet, even though close to the motorway.

Free wifi. (A huge factor when choosing a hotel, I find.) The TV had a number of English channels, and channels in other languages. However, the TV had an unusual channel-display system that included an annoying slight delay when changing channels.

The breakfast spread was extensive, varied and classy, although not perhaps in the luxury range. Eggs scrambled or boiled. Various sticky buns. OK coffee. Very nice fruit and juices. It’s not cheap if you order it separately (€14 I think) so try to get it included. The cuisine produced by the kitchen here, as you might expect from a “fashion hotel” is quite good. I had lunch here twice, and it felt positively luxurious.

The conference facilities and services are excellent.

The fitness centre is more than a typical hotel gym, but less than a proper health club. It has a 15 m pool and a small facility with about 12 expensive-looking cardio and strength machines. These are free for hotel guests. I didn’t see dumbbells or barbells, but maybe they’re there -- they wouldn’t let me look. The sauna costs €10. When I was ready to go in to train, I was subjected to an off-putting inspection, lecture and serious attitude. Save yourself the trouble: Bring a clean towel and clean your shoes thoroughly before attempting entry -- and don’t look them in the eyes. They’re clearly looking for reasons not to let in the hotel guests. It’s not an extensive, welcoming facility. There is no other gym nearby, as far as I can see. Indeed, there is almost nothing at all nearby (except the highway). So if working out is important to you, find another hotel.

The first thing you notice about the WestCord Fashion Hotel is its location. It’s in a part of Amsterdam that no-one really goes to. It’s about 500 metres from something called “World Fashion Centre”, but that is hardly a site worth a special trip.

The parking was a whopping €25 a night, even though the hotel is located along the motorway in the middle of nowhere. If they are trying to get motorists to stay here, this seems like a strange way to do it.

The location is convenient only in the sense that it’s on the A10 northbound near the S106 (Cornelis Lelylaan). So getting here by car from the motorway is not that difficult. Still, the A10 is hardly an “open road”. The hotel is about 3 kms from the A4/A10 motorway interchange, one of the busiest in the entire country. Come here at rush hour (from Schiphol or anywhere else) and you are certain to be caught in a serious traffic jam. Nor is the hotel particularly close to Schiphol, despite what they tell you.

You might think, well, I’ll park my car at the hotel and take public transport into the centre of town. That is conceivable, because tram 1 and tram 17 do come out this far. However, you have to walk several hundred metres to get to these stops. Surprisingly for Amsterdam, no tram stops beside the hotel. If you plan to come back after a night on the town, you have to rely on Nightbus 353, which stops at Lelylaan Station. From there, it’s about a 500 m. walk to the hotel in what seems to be a relatively safe neighbourhood. I really urge the hotel to issue guests with a sheet of paper with simple and precise instructions on how to get to Amsterdam (and back) by public transport.

When we were there, the hotel was filled with Italian bus tourists. There were others, but it was mostly this at breakfast. Somehow this hotel suited this particular group perfectly.

This hotel is perfect for motorists who want to stay near Amsterdam, but don’t need to go to the centre of Amsterdam at all. The location didn’t work for me personally. While I would definitely recommend the hotel itself (5/5), I would not recommend its location (1/5). My “yes” is therefore a qualified one and my rating tries to balance these two factors.

At least a 20 min tram ride from the centre and on a dual carriage way which would definitely be a bit risky were you to be coming back late at night. Whilst the staff weren't unfriendly I only saw one staff member for a big hotel. The decor was bizarre with random naked mannequins adorning the halls and a glass door to the bathroom which in one sense was romantic but certainly not if you are using for more functional means... To sum up, best avoided.

We wanted to stay in a clean, modern and easy access hotel on our first trip together to Amsterdam and Westcord Fashion was the right choice. We really liked the photos of the hotel while booking via booking.com and the hotel definetely was no disappointment at all. Such a clean and comfortable room. A great, big bed and two chairs with a coffee table in between could fit in the room. Amenities contain tea/coffee which is definetely a plus. Lobby, bars and other public areas are very fashion and fun.
Location is not like in the middle of everything but taking one bus and 10 min trip take you to the heart of the city. If you imagine that you can easily go on foot around Amsterdam, transportation doesnt cost a thing.
Staff was good.Helped us with whatever we need. We wanted to book a one day tour from the hotel and they did really good job with that also.
One not cool thing about the hotel was the music noise coming from the Sky Bar (I think 11th floor or something) but it was ok after a while because we dropped dead everyday after long hours of discovering Amsterdam.
I cant really remember any other bad thing about this hotel. We really enjoyed staying there and recommend to evryone.

This hotel is around 30 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam (5-10 minutes walk, 20 minutes on the tram) but offers unbelievable quality for the price. The rooms are modern, luxurious and spacious. We had a drink in the Skyy [sic] bar, it's OK up there but a little disappointing. Otherwise we brought in supplies from the city everyday (there is a small drawer with a couple of wine bottle sized compartments for your own use as part of the mini bar). There is a large Albert Heijn supermarket, next to Magna Plaza and near the tram stop at Dam Square for both lines 1 and 17 (that go to the hotel) so this is ideal.

The nearest tram stop is Derkinderenstraat, not Surinameplein as others have said. You need to exit the hotel on level -2 and then turn left, under the motorway bridge and then right at the roundabout. The tram entrances are under the next bridge on the left-hand side

This is a really good hotel and is excellent value for money for Amsterdam. The rooms are a good size and were very clean. The hotel is a bit out of town with nothing much in the local area but the tram stop is only 10 minutes walk away with the tram ride around 10 minutes into the city centre.

It is really good hotel with this best price. The room was huge for an Amsterdam city hotel. I will stay in this hotel if they continue offer this price. It is close the city center with clean and cozy decoreted rooms. I stayed a lot of Amsterdam hotels in different areaz but this is the best one..
