This hotel couldn't have fit the bill better for what we were looking for. We were in Amsterdam for one night only for a concert at the Arena and were looking for a reasonable quality, cost-effective, convenient place to stay. This hotel was perfect.
The location is actually outside Amsterdam city centre at the Sloterdijk railway station but it is only one stop on the train from Amsterdam central (literally 3 or 4 minutes with 6 trains per hour) at a cost of 2.2 euro.The hotel is immediately adjacent to the Sloterdijk station and is also on the green Metro line that takes you to the Amsterdam Arena amongst other places. Sloterdijk is also a stop between the airport and city centre for added convenience.
The hotel is a modern "business" style hotel which is exactly how we like our accommodation. The room was spotless and comfortable and the bathroom was so clean and polished it was almost startling. All bedroom and bathroom fixtures and furnishings were modern and in immaculate condition. Nothing could be faulted. Comfy bed, quiet, good room temperature all provided for great sleep quality.
Breakfast was typically continental with a selection of cereals, cold meats and cheese, breads and pastries, yoghurts etc. plus fruit juices, tea and coffee. Plenty of it although the supplies did need to be regularly replenished. We availed ourselves of the bar facilities when we returned late in the evening and the prices are exactly as you experience in the city bars and cafes.
The best bit is the price. In a city where hotels aren't cheap this place was a bargain and for the quality and convenience it was doubly so.
