“Great Location, Average Rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

Two minute walk from the Central Station for train and tram travel, which allows easy access to anywhere in the city. We stayed here for two nights. The room was small, but perfect for our needs (sleeping and taking showers). The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. We encountered two room cleaning staff who were arguing with each other in Spanish near the elevator, which looked very unprofessional. Other than that, no real complaints, and would recommend this hotel for short stays and travelers looking for a convenient location.

The hotel cound't be located better: two steps from the Central Station (very conveniently connected to the Schipol airport), trams and boats - and a short walk from the city center. The Ibis standards met our expectations - clean and functional but very "basic" rooms, friendly but a bit slow staff, simple breakfast. Pity that the hotel does not offer rooms for families so we had to stay in two separate rooms. I believe that for the longer stay we wouldn't choose this hotel but for two nights it was just good. Plus location = Very Good.

Thanks to the many reviews on Trip Advisor (thank-you to all who contribute) we chose this hotel. The room tips advise on asking for a Red Tulip room, which is in a different section of the hotel with its own lift, really paid off. We were put on the seventh floor with a view overlooking the river - fantastic. The Red Tulip rooms are a certain design with larger bathrooms and showers.
The hotel is modern and clean with friendly, efficient staff. The location is great for exploring Amsterdam as it overlooks Centraal Station.
Our only slight gripes are the air conditioning which hardly did it's job and was very noisy which meant at night with the windows shut (you have to shut them due to the noise from the station and particularly the station announcements) the room was too warm for our liking.
Also for us the breakfast at 17 euros per person was extortionate. We only wanted Continental i.e. cereals and toast with a cup of tea. It is a pity hat they did not offer a light option for 8 euros, as Premier Inn do in the UK.
All that aside we enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Amsterdam

Room Tip: Ask for a Red Tulip room that are on the higher floors.

I choose this particular Ibis hotel, because it was located next to the train station at 49 Stationsplein, Centraal Station, Amsterdam, which would make it a lot easier for us to make side trips by train. We stayed there four nights. The room was located on the 6th floor, it was quiet and had a great view of the river Ij, the ferries that cross the waterway and the Ij museum. The room was bright and cheery, had a double bed and a single bed. The bathroom had a great walk-in shower and was clean. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. The staff provided me with with an electric water kettle to make some late-night tea. The breakfast buffet was excellent, definitely worth the extra cost. I loved their automated coffee, etc dispensers and had my daily cappuccinos.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors are quiet

Hotel is a great location if arriving/departing via Central Station. Rooms are above the station platforms and our air conditioner wasn't working so the trains were loud as we had to sleep with the window open. Would recommend for a couple for a short stay, however we had a triple room which was a bit small for 3 adults with suitcases
