“Good hotel, conveniently located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

This Holiday Inn is conveniently located, especially if you have a car. There is a parking lot near the hotel (on a first come, first served basis. 25 euros/night, which isn't bad for Amsterdam), other parking spaces around the hotel (significantly more expensive) and free street parking from Friday night till Sunday morning. Nothing interesting around the hotel (looks like a residential area. You need to take the tram to the city center, which is less than 20 minutes away..The tram stop is right by the hotel. The room was nice, except for the bathroom, which wasn't as clean as it should have been. I would have complained about it had I not checked in really late, after a seven-hour drive. I'm sure that if I had, the staff would have fixed the problem, because they seem to form a good, professional team.

The staff was wonderul, the room were spacious and clean, continental breakfast with all kind of bread and fresh fruit and good location. Buy a public transport ticket at the front desk, tram 5 leaves next to the hotel and takes you down town amsterdam within 20 minutes!
Highly recommended!

Holiday Inn Express in the Amsterdam is hotel with bare essentials.. while thelocation is close to the busy south Amsterdam biz district.. the immediate vicinity is quite a dump( in the middle of a residential area, no restuarants, bar etc). The staff is very friendly and cordial !

The hotel, location, staff, breakfast... everything was simply excellent. We chose this hotel as it was outside of Amsterdam, it's a 20-25 minute train ride to get to Central Station, so whilst not on the door step, for the price and ease of getting to and from the main area, this was ideal!

Stayed 4 nights on a recent exhibition at Rai
Rooms are clean and have plentiful amenities.
Staff were awesome always friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is plentiful.
The tram 5 and metro 51 goes to rai and the town
Buy a 24 or 48 hrs citywide transit pass.

Would repeat anytime I am in Amsterdam.

Not very easy to find, it is a clean and good-priced hotel, with excellent staff. The rooms are large and comfortable, bath room is modern and clean. Some very good restaurants in the area and close to Amsterdam RAI and the Amsterdam ringroad.

Only disadvantage: no private parking. But there is plenty of parking space around the hotel.

This hotel is a lovely hotel which i found to be value for money. The hotel is however a 30 min tram ride from the central station which is the only down side. The tram no 5 stops just outside the hotel and also metro 51 also stops there which is easy enough to get to.

Breakfast was lovely, the rooms were modern. would stay here again
