“Surprisingly great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

Was not expecting much from this very central over used hotel but what a surprise very clean. It is a basic hotel no kettle but there is a hairdryer and free wifi. Check out was painstakingly slow but I would still return

Room Tip: Floor 5 in the red tulip building had air con others in our party were on floor 3 in the yellow mill...

cons:
- Aircon is not working well. We stayed last weekend (Summer season) and it was so hot. Opening the window doesn't really help, it was still warm inside the room.
- too expensive for one night stay
- very limited space in the room
- reception is always busy that you have to wait for some time before they could attend to you

pros:
- right beside the main train station and walking distance to most popular spots in Amsterdam. Also, several restos nearby.
- good wifi signal even inside the rooms.
- clean bathroom

We stayed in the Ibis hotel in Amsterdam from 30 June to 4 July 2014. My husband attended the Psychology Conference at the Berlage. This hotel was in a wonderful location. Close to the central station. The staff was wonderful. The breakfast was superb! I would recommend this hotel to anybody anytime! The rooms were a bit small but very clean!!

Thanks for a wonderful stay!!

We arrived at the train station and the hotel was literally a few mins' walk from there- perfect if you've been travelling for ages and just want to get to your room! Also great if you have a short break in Amsterdam City and need to be central, and you're happy with a small, basic room- which are very clean and comfortable.

Downsides are that you can hear the trains at the back of the hotel, and the water pressure in the shower was inconsistent- one second hot, then warm, and then cold- so not great. Some of the TV channels didn't work either. But if you get a good deal and you don't intend on watching TV and showering the whole time then it's hard to complain.

Overall it was perfectly suitable and I'd stay there again.

Stayed October 2013

Wonderful location...very near the train station. You will feel like you are in a cruise because of the small but clean rooms. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Friendly staff... the front desk can assist in booking canal cruise at a reasonable price.

Stayed here for a city break with the girls. We had two rooms for the weekend. Getting to the hotel couldn't be easier from Schipol airport. Jump on a train at the airport and 10 mins later you'll be at Centraal.


Location is second to none. Practically located on the station. Walking distance from everything (5-10 min max) (Dam Square, Red Light Distt., Anne Frank’s House). The rooms are compact but not as small as some people here are making out. Rooms were serviced well everyday.

Check in and check out was swift. There is a vending machine on the room floors and in the lobby serving hot beverages and cold drinks. We would go into the station in the mornings to buy breakfast at the Starbucks or Supermarket in there (its like being in London’s Victoria station).

The hotel is perfectly located and priced for a city break in Amsterdam. I would definitely stay here again.

Indeed a fantastic location hence the very high rate they ve charged ...

The rest is all a little factory-like with a factory style checkin, service and facilities ! As a Dutch person back in the Netherlands for a short break its actually not showing the Netherlands in a great light

Bathroom was tiny but has all facilities ! Had a room near the top floor whilst ' work' was carried out on a neighboring room (they should have told us this)

Overall : there must be a better "welcome to Amsterdam" then this hotel

It seems management just came out of school and had little real-wold hospitality experience

Wont stay here again !

Green Features: other then the usual " chain promo" like save a tree etc nothing seems visible What would be interesting to know where exactly all those trees IBIS is planting currently are ....

Dear SiemReaplover,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel.

I'm sorry to hear your experience didn't meet up to your expectations. I have shared your comments with our team and we will do our utmost to improve our service quality.

Regarding our 'plant for the planet' program, I'm happy to share some more information with you. We post this information next to our reception as well. The savings from the guests in our hotel only, since 2009, already financed the planting of 3,866 trees in Transylvanian forests in Romania. Please feel free to visit our website, where you'll find a link to the plant for the planet program, where all information can be found.

Thank you again for your feedback and hopefully we can welcome you in the future.

Best regards,
Dennis Rullens
