“Overall good experience”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Only stayed one night but thoroughly enjoyed my stay.he rooms are clean, beds are comfortable. There is free wifi everywhere. The bathrooms are of adequate size, large shower with good hot water pressure.The is a TV with various channels(lots of dutch ones)

The staff are very friendly and there are loads of facilities to keep you busy downstairs.
Breakfast is also served but I had to leave early to make my way to Brussels at 6am.

The hotel is a bit of the distance from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, a bit too far too walk but on the good side it is right next to the train station which gets you there in about 5-10 minutes.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights while waiting for the flight home. Nice, clean rooms and a great shower. You have a kitchen at the entrance and can cook your own meals - was kind of fun but will appeal mostly to young people and groups. Excellent free wifi everywhere, courteous staff and low prices - what more could you want?

I traveled to Amsterdam with my girlfriend for 2 nights, when we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by such great staff who are willing to do anything to better your stay at the hotel. The girls on the reception are well spoken, polite and willing to help when you need it. The Brazilian guy (forgot his name) who works behind the bar at night is brilliant so friendly and like the reception staff will help you with anything he can. He also ordered a pizza for us which was delivered to our room. The rooms have an 'ikea' feel to them but are clean and modern which is all we needed. the location of the hotel is ideal only one stop from the center of Amsterdam which takes 5 mins on the train. we will be back!

Room Tip: Our room was located next to the lifts we heard some noise from time to time but nothing to extreme

We were in a room shared with 4 other people. The facilities weren't bad, and it was well priced for a hotel of its quality. The major downside is the sheer distance away from the middle of amsterdam it is. I know the train station is near by, but this is no use after a night out, particularly when you a spinning off your bonce. Overall, not too bad, but wish we had payed more attention to location than price.

This is rather a no frills hotel or more of a mix between hotel and hostel, but I found not many faults with it! My room was cleaned every day (and I stayed for eight nights!), towels always changed (as long as I put them on the floor), and the staff at reception were very friendly. My room was functional and modern, not particularly luxurious or pretty, but not ugly either. Moreover, it's only a five-minute train ride to Centraal, and trains run every three minutes or so!
On the other hand, my room was rather small and there are many youth groups and school classes in the hotel, so sometimes it got loud, although I didn't hear any partying, rather the slamming of doors and shouting in the hallways. The biggest minus is that you can't open the windows. The aircon worked well, so it didn't get sticky, but still I would have preferred to let some fresh air in.
Altogether, I'd stay here again, I think the pros outweigh the cons!

Hotel seems very clean but they have a serious bed bug problem!! My family and I stayed two nights and my bed had bed bugs, very disappointed! I woke up the second day to see a little bug crawling in my bed. 10 days later and I still have itchy red bumps all over my body (where my skin was exposed)! You also need to pick up a little paper for each device that you want to connect to the wifi. It says the password will be good for three days however every morning my wifi would not work. Front desk staff very friendly however the line-up to wait and ask a question is ridiculous at any time of day. It appears very clean and a great price but unless you want your vacation ruined with bed bug bites, do not stay here.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to read about your experience with bedbugs. We would like to assure you that bedbugs have nothing to do with the cleanliness of a hotel. These insects are brought into the hotel by travellers and spread them selves into the sheets and walls. Our housekeeping is trained to spot them but ocasionally misses out on 1 or 2. We therefore appreciate it when our guests alert us to it so we can immediately take measurements to clean the room and kill the bugs. Please be aware that these bugs are not in any case dangerous or harmfull, and we would like to advise you to wash your clothes in 60 degrees to make sure they are exterminated.

We hope that you have enjoyed your stay in Amsterdam after all and regret that this might have ruined an aspect of your holiday. In case of any further questions or comments about your stay, please don't hesitate to contact us directly. We hope to welcome you at Meininger again some other time!

Warm regards,

Meininger Amsterdam
