Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam-Sloterdijk Station
Ranked #68 of 373 Hotels in Amsterdam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Friendly staff, easy parking €15 per day, rooms clean, tidy and had high quality fixtures.

Good location, the hotel was right next to the train station which has trains running to Amsterdam Central constantly, as the train is only a 5 minute journey we road the train for free every day/night.

Breakfast was your standard continental breakfast with no cooked food. Saying that it was all fresh and high quality. Would defiantly stop at this hotel again as it was good value for money compared to the hotels in the centre which were triple the price for a similar standard of hotel.

Dear chrisrey,

Thank you for your kind words. It is very nice to read you enjoyed your stay with us as well as the location of the hotel. For any future visits to Amsterdam it might be good to know that the trains in The Netherlands do not run for free. In the central hall of the station it is possible to buy the tickets from the yellow vending machines.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel.

Kind regards,
Paul Bremen

I have just returned after spending 5 nights at this hotel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The hotel is ideally situated about 5 minutes from Amsterdam Central Station. The trains run frequently. Our room faced onto the station but you were not disturbed by the trains at any time. I would certainly use this hotel again if I return to Amsterdam.

I was organising 1 day business conference close to Utrecht with people flying over a night before. The hotel seems like perfect location for business travelers. Less than 10 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes to Amsterdam central station.
And in the morning you just drive to the highway and of you go - no traffic jams.

The hotel is brand new. Much better than regular HI Express. Room is cosy, bathroom nice. If you come with a car, you get free parking in a garage.

All guests have free WIFI.

Lobby bar was just good enough to have couple of drinks before heading for downtown.

Breakfast was also good - much better than what you would expect from Express version of HI.

Stuff friendly and helpful.

Definitely a hotel worth staying at.

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend in october, myself and my boyfriend found the hotel convenient and comfortable for a weekend break.
This is my third visit to Amsterdam and the first time i've not stayed in the centre of the city, purely due to the cost for this last minute break, i looked further out for a cheaper hotel.
The hotel is right next to sloterdijk station just one stop before centraal station on the intercity train - after some confusion at the station in getting on the correct train ( this was due to a route change only announced in dutch) it was really easy to get to, the train will stop at Leylaan and then Sloterdijk and finally centraal.
As my boyfriend was there for work at a town just on the outskirts also, it was a really easy place for us both to meet as he jumped on the underground to the same sloterdijk station.
The hotel entrance is a little weird having to walk down some stairs at the side to go in through the back of the hotel - if you have heavy cases its not the best set up.
Inside the hotel is very modern and clean - the rooms are a little on the small side ( not sure if this was just the end room ? ) but very well appointed - great shower room, comfy beds, plenty of pillows , flat screen tv , window which can open. The only annoying thing was a strange noise we could hear in the room at night ...not sure if this was the A/C or water pipes ??
The breakfast buffet was a great way to start the day - plenty of breads and fresh pastries, toast, boiled eggs, juice, coffee and cereals which was constantly replenished.
In terms of getting into central Amsterdam i found it really easy - we only ever jumped on the 48 bus and it was no longer than 20 mins into the centre - the bus was really frequent - we never got back too late so i'm not sure if it run past mid-night but all the timetables are at the bus station to check. From centraal station you can jump straight onto trains and trams and ferries to a lot of places. The fact that the hotel entrance backs onto the bus station is a good thing when u return to the hotel after a long day walking just a few steps to the door.
If i return to Amsterdam i would consider staying at this hotel again, great transport links, really comfortable modern hotel and great breakfast to set you up for the day.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the quiet side not nr the train line. handy shops inside the station to get drinks...

Everything else is great -- but the bed and maybe the internet.

Location: out of central amsterdam -- but easily accessible by tram #12 -- which is just a 2 minute walk. And there's the sloterdijk station with all other transport options. I felt it was quite a chore to get to / from the main city center though.

Parking: The hotel has 2 levels of parking in the basement. I think they charge 15 euros a night.

Rooms: New and modern. Basic amenities. Nothing to complain about. Nothing to rave about. We had a room on floor 1 (the same floor as the reception desk). There was no security to get into the hotel room section and that was a little unsettling for my room mate. However, if you got a room on another floor -- you'd have to swipe your key card to press your floor.

Beds: So uncomfortable. So springy. So hard. For a night -- it was okay -- but we were there for 4 nights. Not okay.

Breakfast: is included for everyone I think -- because they never took our room number. The great thing was on Sat & Sun -- breakfast ended at 12 noon!! Weekdays, breakfast ended at 10 AM. Great basic selection. Bread, croissants, cereal, coffee machine, hard boiled eggs (no other eggs -- I wished they had scrambled), hams, cheese slices, no bacon. For an express hotel -- breakfast was pretty good!!

Would I stay here again? Probably not -- bed was so bad.

Dear atanner100,

Thank you for your kind words! I am surprised to read you did not like our beds. Only two months ago we have finalised a complete swap of all the mattresses. Please be so kind as to let me know in which room you stayed so I can have a look at the bed myself. You can contact me via gm.amsop@hiex.nl.

I am happpy to read that you enjoyed our extended breakfast opening on weekends. Again, thank you for your feedback and I look forward to hearing from you.

This hotel is quite far from Amsterdam Center, but it is just by a train station about 5 minutes from the center. Parking was free, but finding it is quite tricky as the hotel doors not have direct access to the street. In spite of the small room, it fit for my trip.

Dear C_Toyo,

Thank you for your choosing us for your stay in Amsterdam. We were very pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay. The location is indeed a good starting point for your stay in Amsterdam with only minutes to the airport as well as the citycentre. At this moment the local government is putting a lot of effort in Sloterdijk to make this area, with many offices, a bit more into a Green City Area (Manhattan-Central Park) with additional green areas, shops, restaurants and culture. The developments are already started and are great to see.

Again, thank you for staying with us and thank you so much for your time to write this review.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for a couple of nights for a friend's wedding. As a convenient and comfortable place to stay, not far from the airport or the centre of town, I'd highly recommend it. It's less than a minute's walk from the hotel to Sloterdijk station so you can't really go wrong. Breakfast is a buffet (free) with plenty of choice, although it's a but of a scrum if you go down at peak times! Free wifi is a bonus.
