“"The iron horse was donkey".”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We specificly ask for a room with a nice view in upper floor.We have seen fotos of hotel and we have read the description but we weren't prepeared for THAT room.It was a tiny room beside the entrance without...WINDOWS.Yes,this is fact there wasn't any window.We immediately asked for an other room.The second room was in 1st floor and also was tiny and it had a window faced the wall of the building beside the hotel.The worst thing of all, there were renovation working in progress and we were waked up at 8 o'clock in the morning. We were asked to pay at the check in ,which didn't pleased us. Besides all this the hotel was in very good location with many restaurants and bars nearby. Bus 197 transfer you directly to the Schiphol airport

Stayed at Hotel Iron Horse during May of 2013. Hotel staff was very friendly. As with most hotels they will allow you to stow your luggage with them until check in time, but the staff here was very informative on things to do to kill time. The hotel was located in a very convenient location (close to public transportation and relatively close to sights).When you stay they offer brochures to some sights in Amsterdam that can save you a few €'s on your visits. Hotel was clean and bed was very comfy. A nice surprise for the amount of $$ spent for a night. I would stay here again.

This hotel was perfect for our 3 day stay in Amsterdam. The hotel was extremely clean, the room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. It was a 5-10 minute walk from the restaurant district, and less than 20 minute walk from many main attractions (Anne Frank House, Heineken Brewery, Van Gogh Museum, etc.) The only thing that I would say was negative was that the walls were a little thin. I woke up many times from loud neighbors and the housekeepers cleaning. We took advice from other reviewers and ate breakfast elsewhere which I was glad we did. There is a nice place for breakfast right next door. However, the hotel does provide complimentary espresso, coffee, hot chocolate and cappuccino.

Hotel rooms have recently been updated. The location to transportation is great, breakfast is good, hotel staff is very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to others. The bus to the city centre is about a block away and a 10 minute ride.

Room Tip: there is no elevator, if that is a concern, if you wish a view be sure to ask for one, many rooms ov...

Very clean hotel.
The only con about this hotel is no smoking policy. Every room with a smoking sensor and you'll be fine 150euro if get caught.
Strategic location.
Free wifi.
From airport take a bus no.179 to Leidseplein (4 euro).
and the nerest CoffeeShop is Tweedy (150m) =)

We chose this hotel because of its discount rate on hotels.com, and its location. It was 35% off! Overall it's was ok. We had great wi-fi connection and the staff was really nice. There were little details, though. We got the basement Room that was right next to the breakfast room, so if you'd like to sleep in, make sure you don't get the room 16! Also the bed sheets had little holes in them, but nothing to be scared of. The hotel is one square away from the main streets and from the most important museums. Good luck!!

We stayed for two nights after booking on the day. We had a very nice triple room, close to the city centre and in particular Leidesplein Square which has an abundance of bars! The staff were very welcoming. The beds were very comfortable, and rooms clean. The complementary hot drinks in reception were also a nice touch.
