Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam-Sloterdijk Station

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 20, 2014

Room was very clean and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. On check in we were given a map of the city and told all travel routes to and from the hotel to the city centre which we would have been lost without. The free breakfast in the mornings was great too. I had read reviews about the hotel being disturbed by noise from the trains however my partner and i did not hear any noise at all and we were only on the 2nd floor! I would definitely book this hotel again.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The location is perfect for visiting Amsterdam as the hotel is attached to a main train, bus and tram station. We were one stop away from the central train station in Amsterdam so it was very easy and efficient to get anywhere. The hotel itself was very good and the staff were very accommodating. We initially booked for 3 nights but unexpectedly needed to arrive one day earlier and we needed an extra bed for that first night. Staff graciously accommodated our requests. The rooms were modern, clean and quiet so we had good sleep. The free breakfast in the morning was excellent with lots of choice....and fresh! We spent most of our time in Amsterdam but had a couple of dinners at the restaurant close to the hotel HERMES. While not part of the Holiday Inn, it was very close, had good food and great service.

Room Tip: One side of the hotel faces the tram and bus station so you need to keep the windows closed at night...

The only issue that I had here was that could not find my reservation. Regrettably, this problem was initially handled by a new employee. Frustrating to say the least. After, a short period of time, the general manager took over, and resolved the issue.
The room was bright and pleasant. The general manager recommended a local restaurant for dinner, which worked out well.
The general manager also booked a taxi for us the following morning as it was too early for their shuttle service to the airport.
We were also to early for the complimentary breakfast, but the hotel provided us with croissants and coffee and tea.
The taxi (metered limousine) service was very good. The driver was friendly and informed.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are very good.

My partner and I recently stayed here in July, we arrived here at 10am we thought we would just go and leave our bags as we could not check in until 3pm, when we asked at reception our room was ready and we checked in straight away hassle free and very very pleasant staff. Fantastic service, Our room was huge and bathroom very large with big walk in shower, the rooms looked really new and fresh nothing old or tired, the room was cleaned everyday to a high standard. The hotel is on the main Metro line with trains to the city and airport every 15-20minutes, we also used the bus station which is across the road from the hotel great for a city exploring stop we where very impressed by the location its great to be in all the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam in the day but soo nice to get out of it at night and come back to the lovely peaceful area of the hotel. Nothing negative to say about this hotel I will be staying here again next time I visit totally recommend to all.

The hotel is one train stop from the centre of the city, it is next to a large parking lot which is not as cheap as it seems (without a parking card it costs more than what the signs say). The access to the hotel is very strange, you have to go up some stairs, then go down stairs and then go up a floor by lift to reach the reception. The service was friendly and the breakfast was quite good value for money. The room was very nicely decorating but the big down side was the bed. It was in very bad condition.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your comments, they are very valuable to us.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your comments about the points where we can still improve.

Did you know that we have our own parking as well?
Please be informed that we will realize a second entrance at the station level before the end of this year.

We are very surprised to read your comment regarding the bed, since we have recently changed all our mattresses. Therefore I would like to know in which room you were staying. Would you be so kind to contact me personally on gm.amsop@hiex.nl so I can have a look into this straight away?

Thank you and kind regards,

Anne Schrijen

We stayed there on a busy Saturday night, one night stay. The train station is just door step away from the hotel, which is very convenient to travel to the city. We had a very unpleasant check-in, and housekeeping knocked the door just passed 9am, when came back to the hotel very late the night before. However, the receptionist Emma was very professional and friendly. She took the matter seriously and rectified the issue immediately. We do appreciate her help and professionalism very much. Room was very clean and spacious. Windows can be open, but you do not want to, because of the noise coming from the station is unbearable. Continental buffet breakfast was included. Overall, it is a good hotel.

We booked this hotel because it was an excellent price and was advertised as being only 5 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam by train and 15 minutes from Schipol Airport. The hotel is situated on the main rail line, Metro line, at the bus and tram terminus so there is easy access to the City Centre about 30 minutes away by tram.
We bought Iamsterdam Cards at Schipol Airport which proved excellent value as they provided 'free' travel on the trams, metro and buses, a canal boat trip, free admission to some of the museums and discounts on others. The Ann Frank Museum isn't included on the card and when we saw the length of the queue which is the same regardless of the time of day we wished we'd had the foresight to book it in advance (about a month beforehand apparently).
The hotel was, as we would have expected, from the ICH chain spotlessly clean with very polite and helpful staff, the only real down side was that there were no amenities near the hotel so you had to eat in the City Centre or order a Take Away.

Room Tip: The rooms are all the same.
