Close to Sloterdijk train station, so easy for getting in and out of the city. Staff were hurried and short, but nothing to complain about. The room was spotless and clean. Lovely crisp linens and clean towels. No problems with the room at all. Quiet hallways.
Amazing breakfast selection, kept our family of 3 very happy! Meats, cheese, cereals, fruit, yogurt, breads. Great value.

It's hard to find a good room in Amsterdam if you are a family of five. Meininger has it even up to 7
people! Good location for traveling. City easily reachable by train. Very friendly welcome and good service.

We stayed here last night because we went to a concert in Amsterdam and as I work in Amsterdam but live about an hour away it would save us a lot of time.

Personally the 3 most important aspects of any hotel are:
[ ] cleanliness
[ ] a good bed
[ ] a good shower

Meininger ticked all of these boxes with ease, we payed 52 euro's for a 2 person room... which is very cheap, most hotels will charge double that for a room that isn't half as good.

As for location, this hotel is not in the city centre... but it's right next to a train station (Amsterdam Sloterdijk), so Amsterdam central station is only a 5 minute trip away with trains running every couple of minutes. Anyone complaining about the location did not look at the map ;)

Being close to a station / and a budget hotel/ youth hostel worried me a bit, but they put a lot of effort in to soundproofing the rooms :) We heard almost no train sounds and none of our neighbours.

As there is always room for improval I have a couple of very small remarks:
- there is no safe in the room, but you can rent something at the reception...
- personally I like a room to be cold at night, even with the aircon set to freezing it wasn't as cool as I hoped it would be.
- a couple of cups in the bathroom would have been nice

But again, these are very minor things... I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Amsterdam!

Stayed here for 4 nights. great service, in particluar Nadia, a very helpful and friendly staff. Shes very positive and personable! really took care of my needs. I stayed with 3 other relatives in a 4 bedroom room. we found out on the second day that they didnt replenish our bath towels. i went to ask the desk where Nadia was tending and she took care of it right away, even asking me to head back to my room for my convenience, as she would bring my towels up for me. The rooms are very clean and comfy, and showers are great. Hotel quality level at hostel prices. there are charging electricial outlets for every bed which was a plus. there are also 2 washing machines in the kitchen area. location wise not very good as it was far from central amsterdam and tube station was quite far also. will stay again.

The place itself is fine but way too far from the heart of Amsterdam. We changed places after two nights to a place in the Jordaan area and it was WAY better being able to walk out of our place and be right in walking distance of everything. On the plus side they had two acoustic guitars in the lobby so we put on a late night musical performance.

As I got an unbelievable rate of 28euro per night for a single room, I couldn't help but feel a bit apprehensive about my stay at this hotel. But i had a very positive experience: my room was brand new, spotlessly clean and neat. Bathroom was very nicely designed and also freshly done - could have been a bathroom of a 4 star hotel. There was free wifi available and the breakfast included all whats needed (eggs, cereal, fruit, toast, croissant, juices, coffee and tea).
Location is convenient for those ready to use the train - as the major train station is literally net door. I travelled by taxi and everywhere was not far.
The design of the room is bare minimalism, so it feels a bit like a university campus residence, but it is functional and convenient. I wouldn't stay here on a family trip or a romantic weekend, but a solo/ business traveller or a young person would be very satisfied here.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during the europa league final and it served its purpose. Our double room, although small, was very clean and looked as if it had been renovated recently. It was a very basic room but had everything I was looking for considering we spent very little time there. The staff was helpful and friendly, and the sloterdijk station is literally a 2 min walk, and for around 3€ it will take you to amsterdam centraal station in 5 minutes, or for 7€ it will take you to schiphol airport in about 10 min. This made things very easy for us, and saved us some money for not having stayed in the city itself. At first I was a little skeptical about not staying directly in the city, but after this stay I would definetly stay again if I ever return to amsterdam.
