Hotel Iron Horse
Ranked #31 of 343 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Great location, just a short walk from Leidseplein and easy access to the trams. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and bathroom was surprisingly roomy. Had second floor room in the back building so view was of courtyard and backyards. Very quiet. The "twin" beds took a little getting use to, but were comfortable enough. I'd definitely stay here again.

We found the Iron Horse to be a decent hotel with a walkable location. Getting there from the airport was easy and staff was accommodating. Only bad part was the bathroom smelled horrendous. Beds were not the most comfortable but were clean and met the european standard.

Stayed at his hotel for New Year's Eve in a 3 single bed bedroom on the ground floor in the back buildings room 110, looking out over the courtyard, not a great view but don't stay in a central hotel for bedroom view, only used room for showers and sleep! This hotel is in a Great location, central position but quiet at night, tram line right outside which takes you to dam square, ideal location for shops, museums, bars and coffee shops. Nice comfy beds, lovely night sleep, well set up hotel and excellent friendly staff in reception, nothing was too difficult. Rooms were clean and enough space for three adults, bathroom well equipped, nice hot shower and very clean. Coffee machine and towels, shower gel are all supplied, Room got cleaned everyday. Would defintley stay in this hotel again, a secret gem of amsterdam! Wifi is also available in hotel for free, the coffee machine in reception is lovely and free aswell! Thank you for a excellent New Year's Eve!

The hotel is very well located, near to many subway stations. There is a supermarket nearby but you can only pay by credit card…
The room was very clean, modern and quiet, but for us no view...
What I didn't like is that my credit card was debited (used for the reservation in Booking.com) without my authorization and I wanted to pay cash ! The first lady at the reception was also not very helpful, fortunately the lady in the evening was very nice!
The price was also very good, in one word this was a good quality for the price!

Served us well, shame about the ground floor view into next door... make sure you get something on the 2nd floor. Was in a decent location to the rest of the city and it looked as though there were some decent places being built (food/bars).

This hotel is in a great location and is amazing value!

We were so pleased by many aspects of the hotel. The hotel was so clean and the rooms were cleaned each day we were there to a good standard and with clean towels provided each day.
The tv in the room has many English channels and there is a wide variety of hot drinks supplied for free in the room.
There is also a safe provided for free in each bedroom which was a huge bonus as we have been used to having to pay extra for these before.
The beds were also extremely comfy!

The hotel staff spoke perfect English and were so helpful in terms of giving us advice about where to go and how to get to places.
There is a nice little area to sit in the reception of the hotel with a free hot drinks machine (all of the drinks are so tasty).

All in all we had a great stay and if we come back to Amsterdam we will 100% stay here!

This is a great little hotel on the edge of the canal ring in Amsterdam. Easy to walk into central Amsterdam or even better into the fantastic little streets of Jordaan and 9 streets.Really all people talk about when you say you're going to Amsterdam is the coffee houses and the red light district but Amsterdam is SO much more than this. Fantastic individual shops and wonderful places to eat home cooked food very reasonably if you just get away from Dam square and the centre.
Back to the Iron Horse- this place is great - I was going to say for the price but it is great anyway - for the price its amazing!! Not for those who dont like stairs but then thats the same all over Amsterdam. Lovely room plenty of space. Tea/Coffee heating that could be controlled in the room lovely bathroom clean and very very soft comfy beds!
We had the breakfast which at 7.5 euros was good value - impeccably presented plenty of choice continental breakfast which you can eat to your hearts content with as much tea and coffee as you like.
Very friendly helpful staff .....
I could go on about this place but you get my drift!
We stayed 11.12.13-13.12.13 visiting my son who is a student in Amsterdam and rest assured we will be back!

Room Tip: If you dont like steep stairs there are ground floor rooms which you could request
