“Nice hotel, close to city centre”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

I've recently stayed at Best Western Hotel, traveling to Amsterdam as a gift for my partner. I must say it was just the right hotel, cozy and intimate place. The reception staff was very nice and helpful and the room was spacious and clean. Tram stop just 2 min walk from the hotel with easy access to Amsterdam central and all other attractions. What was even greater was the unlimited free coffee and tea served in the lounge area.
Overall, 10/10.

During my last visit I had stayed in Notting Hill booked by the company that I work for. On my return trip early November I did my own reservation. I was looking for a place which would be reasonably priced, in a quiet location and easy to access from other parts of Amsterdam. Best Western Delphi was just that.

Then why the 4 stars? The reason: there is always room for improvement everywhere. Saying that I found the hotel clean, the staff professional, the breakfast (part of the stay) good, healthy and filling. The coffee round the clock was good and the free internet connection added to staying inside worth every penny (It had started to rain and some snow flakes were already visible).

There are 2 tram lines close to the hotel and a few minutes walk needed to stops or to the super market and many decent eating places. The neighborhood is quiet, though I could not use the opportunity because of weather.

The single bed room was comfortable, but depending on what one prefers the pillows were not to my liking.

I got a room overlooking a roof! So, my advice would be to ask for rooms facing the 2 streets. I am not sure if it was the north or the south side. Overall a nice place and would recommend others to check this hotel.

I am planning to go back and stay again,

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the 2 streets, not sure if it is the north or south side.

Located 30 mins distance by tram (No. 5 or No. 24) from Amsterdam Central Station and 10 mins walking distance from major museums (Van Gogh, Reijks etc); there is shuttle bus to Shipol airport at 16EUR per passenger (the receptionist can book it for you and it picks you up at the hotel).
Rooms are very small (first time in my life I saw a single bed room, and could barely fit in the toilet while shaving) but newly renovated and clean.
Breakfast is decent but on Sunday, when the hotel is packed with people, number of seats is not sufficient to accommodate al guests, so you may have to wait.
Compared to other options, and considering also the good price this hotel is definitely the best.

We have just got back from Amsterdam, where my husband ran the Marathon, (3.51 since you asked, ) and I enjoyed walking round this beautiful city. The Delphi is a well run, comfortable hotel, on a good tram route both to the centre , 24 and 5, and to the Zuid railway station, which connects with Schipol Airport very efficiently. And it is only a 20 minute walk to the Marathon Stadium where the run begins. We found the breakfast fine. Help yourself to cereal, scrambled eggs and toast, or the continental cheese, ham and cake. Tea and coffee are available in the dining room at any time, and there is a bar. Our room was warm and comfortable and so quiet, even though we were right next door to the lift. There are restaurants and shops just round the corner, and apart from on Sunday evening the trams are very regular.

Newly refurbished room at a good price (EUR 130). The reception and the breakfast restaurant were a little old, but the service was good. The breakfast buffet was quite poor, so go out for your breakfast.

Now, I think that most hotels in Amsterdam are WAY overpriced, so I stayed here primarily because the rates were not that far in to the triple digits. But the location is better than you think for the Stadionbuurt. Public transportation connections are a bit poor, but you can simply walk to the Rijksmuseum in 15 minutes. If you want to go in to the binnenstad and not return to your hotel until the end of the day, this is certainly a hotel to consider. The location on the Apollolaan is semi-quiet and shady.

I stayed in a single room over Saturday to Sunday. I tried to check in REALLY early, at 9 AM, but they told me that they could have a room ready by 10:30 (normal check-in is 3). Parking is on the street, costing over 20 euros for 24 hours. My room was the usual small Dutch hotel thing: long and narrow, facing the street, up several steep and narrow flights of stairs. But the room was compact and clean, with enough closet space and desk space. The (included) breakfast area was rather nice, with the usual Dutch selection of scrambled eggs, or sandwiches with umpteen kinds of bread. Coffee and tea are freely available throughout the day. WiFi was free and speedy.

Room Tip: Facing the Apollolaan can be noisier.

Location is away from crowded area. Not easily traceable . Good connectivity with local trams. Room size is comparatively small. Staff is friendly & co-operative. Break fast is O.K. Over all staying experience very good. Value for your money.
