We were fortunate to stay at the Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam-Sloterdijk Station hotel from 21st to 23rd November, 2012, and can only give it 100% for service, staff friendliness, free continental breakfast, room cleanliness, everything being so modern, lovely shower facilities, and free internet. What more could you ask for?
Also they provided us with a map of Amsterdam, and were only too pleased to give us tips about how best to get around.
The convenience of this hotel, right by the rail station, gives it a special convenience factor, and yet, it isn't noisy. The rooms are sound proof.
It didn't have a restaurant, but we were recommended to Hermes Restaurant just across the road, and Peter Hermes, the owner, couldn't have been more friendly, and the meals we enjoyed there, were just out of this world. Especially tasty, and a good serving. I had steak and shrimp, with huges baked potator fries, vegetables and sald, and a beer. My wife had ribs. We shared most of the meals between us, to get the best from both.
We would totally recommend this hotel, for being conveniently situated between the Schiphol airport and the Centraal Station, in Amsterdam central.
John and Cheryl......our kindest regards to Daniel, Christina and Yvonne.
