“Good choice for a long weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Meininger- could not fault it. Rooms clean, modern and spacious, fresh clean towels every day. There was 5 of us sharing a room which was ideal for a girls weekend. Hotel is situated 2 minutes from the train station which takes you directly into the centre of Amsterdam. Trains do not run throughout the night, therefore taxi needed after a late night on the town which cost approx £30.
Will be returning to the Meininger again soon -is excellent value for money.

I stayed in Meininger for 5 nights at the end of February 2013.

The hotel is very easy to get to, train station 2 mins away with excellent road links to the airport. You can take a tram (number 12) that will take you to Amsterdam or a bus (number 48) from the station.

The hotel is situated in a quiet area with one restaurant nearby. However, don't let this make you not choose this hotel.

The hotel itself is amazing! Before we arrived there I expeded a youth hostel standard, well - it's like a three star hotel really! The rooms are new, the walls are soundproof and you will not hear your neighbours at all! You will find a hairdryer in the bathroom along with the soap, shower cream and shampoo. The room has got a TV with most European channels -including BBC 1, BBC England, BBC 3 and Skynews!:) Rooms are cleaned on a daily basis and towels are changed everyday as well!

The breakfast is a real feast - 3 types of ham, 3 types of cheese, 5 types of bread, milk, yoghurt, different types of cereals, honey, butter, margarine, fruits, apple juice, orange juice, wide range of teas, coffee etc.
Unfortunately the hotel does not offer lunch or dinner option, which is a downside but if you would like to cook it for yourself, you definitely can! There is a small kitchen with all utensils and free pasta! for any guests to use free of charge. Your dirty dishes can be washed in a dishwasher and if you want to wash your clothes, there is a washing machine for you to use too!

Free Wifi available to all guests, so make sure you take your laptop with you. You also have an option to use PCs in the lobby which are charged 2 Euro per hour.

The reception staff is great and very helpful!

If I'm ever in Amsterdam again, I will definitely stay at Meininger!

I came with my husband and my parents, we are not experienced travelers. This hotel was perfect they had parking 8 euros/24hrs and on our first day that included 4 free bus tickets. The train is less than a 5 minute walk and the information desk is awesome. We are from oklahoma so we don't have public transportation. The train ride is less than 10 minutes to the Amsterdam Center! Very convienant we did not have to drive anywhere!! The Hotel resturant isnt that great so I would eat prior to coming back the hotel or bring food back with you there is a kitchen you can use including washer and dryer. The front desk can book you tours at a discount price. Everyone speaks great english! The rooms were neat and clean!!

Brilliant location few hundred yards from the train station but by no means could you hear the trains from the room. Nice clean rooms (even if it did feel like there was 1 too many bed in my room) with a tv and separate shower and toilet. Free wifi throughout (afaik), just pick up the code from reception. Good breakfast but just get there early as they tend to stop serving a fair while before breakfast should end

Spent 4 nights in this hotel located close to Sloterdjk Railway station. Bedrooms were excellent and the bar area good. Clientele tends to be mainly young but even us older people did not feel out of place. Reception staff were excellent.

Room Tip: Avoid corner room as we found the bathroom to be very cold but this was february.

Hotel is very nice! Staff is friendly, always ready to help. We've been there for 4 days. they forgot to clean the room on next day, but they solved this problem while we've been out and also gave us discount for the drinks in the bar. That was nice of them:)! There were 3 of us, so room was large enough. Sheets, beds are ok. Comfortable. We laso liked it that bath room and toilet are separetly.
Bus station, train station is near, so no problems to get to the center.
I would highly recommend this Hotel for those who wants to save money and have good quality!
Hope to come stay there next time!

We staid there for 4 days and it was really good! Excellent price, good sized room and everything was very clean. The room we staid was a bit bigger than what we paid for because all the other rooms were full. Management was always very polite. The hotel is steps away from the Amsterdam Sloterdijk train station which is only 5 minutes away from Amsterdam Ceentral (the main station).

The Hotel also has a bar, where you can hang out, order some food and just chill. It also has a very practical kitchen where you can cook your own food.

By the way, don't bother with the public transport tickets, the Metro is useless and the trams get some time to get used to. Also don't take the canal tour, it sucks! The Free tour that the city offers is GREAT and you will pay less in tips than the price for two people.
