I stayed here with two friends after flying into Amsterdam from Australia. I chose Meininger due to its accessibility from the airport by the train. It certainly was very close, only a few stops from the airport and very easy to find. However, the location is not great. There are no shops (the only ones being in the train station) as the hotel is situated in a business district. We stayed in a three bed room (one double, one single) which was very clean and had a spacious shower but the room was tiny. Though, due to the location it is very quiet at night. The free wifi was good but only worked in the lobby - but as we stayed on the first floor we occasionally picked up a signal. The kitchen facility is quite small but is sufficient and the breakfast is basic but okay. Staff were friendly enough but we did not really interact with them. Overall, I would recommend the Meininger to a traveller only staying in Amsterdam for the night (if you are flying in) but not for multiple nights if you intend to explore the city.
