HI Express isn't our preferred chain when traveling domestically but this Amsterdam property was a welcome site when we arrived from the U.K.
The hotel is clean and bright, located literally next door to a major transit station. The rooms are exactly what one would find in a domestic location (except for no separate closet). So is the breakfast area (except, curiously in a land where waffles are loved, there was no waffle maker).
All employees we encountered were courteous and helpful and spoke excellent English (virtually everyone in the Netherlands speaks excellent English).
The only drawback is that it's located in an office building area, and there's very little to walk to, including only one nearby restaurant. But one only has to take a No. 48 bus about 15 minutes to central Amsterdam.
