We looked at many hotels of all types & prices before booking Ibis City West. Have stayed at ibis hotels in UK & Europe & this was a good standard for a budget hotel. Room was on 6th floor & was very clean, tidy, modern, & of reasonable size for budget hotel.
We had taken train from Schipol to Slotterdijk station, 15 min ride @ €3.70 ea, then 10 min walk to hotel.
Hotel staff were all very helpful, from reception & bar staff to the room maids.
Reception gave advice on travel to centre by bus route 48 which is 5 min walk to bus stop & then 15 min ride to Amsterdam central station. You also buy GVB travel pass form reception which gives unlimited travel on all local bus, tram & ferry route to Amsterdam city. 72 hour pass costs €16.50 each which is great value.
We did not try the breakfast or bar meals so have no comment on this. Burger King is next door so you can get good coffee & fast food at reasonable price.
There is small cafe also near by, but this seemed closed this weekend. Chinese restaraunt also about 10 min walk from Ibis, again we did not try this.
Lidl supermarket is also very close so you can supplies of essentials if you need so.
We both found this a great base to explore Amsterdam as we do not mind short journey to the centre, unlike London which takes a long time by public transport.
Our only disappointment was that the room did not have facilities for tea/coffee making, unlike most budget hotels in UK. Also there was some noise from Burger King but this only when you had the window open.
Would we recommend, yes we would & we are already planning next visit to Amsterdam & will use this Ibis again for that visit.
Good location, good hotel (budget), good value.
