“Fantastic location for a short stop over between flights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We stayed here for one night whilst "between flights".

The location is ideal for access to the railway station & consequently the airport,

Checked out at 6.40am on a Friday morning and had caught a train & and arrived at the airport by 7am.

Returned yesterday from a lovely 2 night stay at this hotel. Situated just outside the train station making the whole experience of being away that much easier. Staff upon arrival were helpful, spoke good English and were clean and professional looking. Paid, made my way to floor 7 via 2 elevators. Room was clean, lovely bathroom, with nice size flat screen tv, comfy twin beds, desk, safe and clothes hanging area. All I could've wanted to be honest. Made a brilliant place to be able to get back to easily after late nights in the centre and paying that bit extra was definitely worth it. I was going to slum it a bit for £40 - £70 a night in other hotels or b&bs but when I wandered and came across them, what was next door or over the road would've turned me right off. The area in which the Ibis stands is right out the way from all the noise and louts, which after an evening spent mingling with them, is a brilliant contrast. Will be staying again on my next trip.

Just recently stayed at this hotel and was very impressed. The location was very good and not too far from the main attractions. Room and rest of the hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff were helpful and friendly. The only downside is that the breakfast was quite expensive for what it was but other than that very satisfied.

This hotel is directly located to the right of Amsterdam Centraal when you walk out of the front doors of the station. The location is superb, as we did not have to drag our suitcases too far after getting off the train from the airport. The hotel is also a 5 minute walk away from Dam Square, up a straight street.

The receptionists and information staff were extremely helpful and polite.

Our room was located on the 6th floor with views overlooking the city. The room was clean and spacious, apart from the bathroom which was quite small. The room was generally clean - we had zero problems staying for 4 nights.

The only issue that we had was the cost of breakfast. We did not choose to include breakfast as part of our hotel package, but on the first day we decided to try it out. The cooked food was not tasty, and the rest of the selection was a typical continental breakfast. We believe this was not worth the 17 euro fee per person. Instead, we dined in cafes that located along the street to Dam Square each morning where we purchased full English breakfasts for half the price.

Room Tip: A higher floor with city facing views is beautiful to look at, especially in the morning to watch th...

Dear TravelBuddyE,

Thank you very much for your review on Tripadvisor.

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, especially the fact that you considered our staff to be extremely helpful.

I'm sorry to learn our all you can eat breakfast buffet didn't meet up to your expectations. We try to offer a varied selection of warm items and local breads and spreads. Did you know our breakfast is also online bookable in advance at a discounted price?

Thank you again for your most valuable feedback. It is my hope we can welcome you again in the future!

We chose this hotel due to location and price. It’s located just to the left of Central Station, ideal for the transfer from the airport - around 3 or 4 Euro by train.

The trains run every 15 minutes both ways.

Good location, you can reach most parts of Amsterdam on foot. Easy check-in, excellent English speaking staff. Rooms nice, clean and quiet - no train noise noted, the bathroom was a little on the small size but useable.

We opted for the breakfast, generally acceptable but a bit on the boring side - there was no difference in the choices available throughout our whole stay, it was like Groundhog day.

Very good experience, would stay here again with no hesitation.

We found this to be an excellent budget hotel. The staff on reception were friendly, helpful and professional. Our room was clean, comfortable and had a great view of the city. It was also surprisingly quiet and we had a good nights sleep. The hotel is right beside the station, so it is perfectly situated to make the best of a visit to Amsterdam. We would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who wants a good value, central, no frills place to stay in Amsterdam. Thank you ibis for making us feel so welcome on our city break.

Room Tip: Ask for a city view on an upper floor. These rooms are quieter and I loved seeing the city at night...
