“As good as expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The hotel is conveniently located close to tram line 5. If you do not want to go out at night, or would like to be in the middle of the buzzbuzz of a major city, this is a hotel with usually a very good price-quality relationship. Breakfast is always included in the room rate, and the price for single and double occupancy are the same, the hotel is clean, not very noisy with very friendly and has a helpful staff. The basic breakfast is simple but good. Kosher food is also available. We had a good stay.

Room Tip: Sometimes there is the noise of landing Airpalnes from Schiphol. Could be that you hear this less in...

This hotel is just a 25-minute journey out of Centraal Station on the No. 5 tram or the No. 51 Metro, which stop just a three minute walk away. Tickets for unlimited travel for any number of days are available at Centraal Station.

The room was extremely clean and evenings and nights were very comfortably quiet. The staff were wonderful - always greeting you with a smile when you returned and most helpful when planning what to do during the day. There are a few restaurants within a walk from the hotel but (recommended by staff) the Indonesian Takeaway is well worth a visit - and the Hotel is quite happy for you to use the breakfast dining area, plates and cutlery to enjoy the meal in peace, with the bonus of the small hotel bar nearby.

We really would recommend the Holiday Inn Express South and, the next time we visit Amsterdam, we will certainly make for this Hotel again.

This really is a good Hotel. The service is excellent and the friendly staff helpful. The Hotel in general is first rate and a continental breakfast is included. The rooms are nicely furnished, soundproofed, well appointed and tended daily by the service staff. The hotel is only 25 minutes from Amsterdam central station by metro (No 51 line). The Number 5 tram provides a different route into central Amsterdam. Both of these are only 100 - 150 yards from the entrance of the Hotel which is easy to spot from the station platform. There is a good supermarket again only 150 yards away. You can purchase the superb public transport passes from the hotel reception. Wonderful stay, will definitely return and recommend to all.

Great value, and a short trip into town makes this place a very good deal.
Free parking on the weekends also.
Only downside is limited local restaurants, just eat in town instead, and go to cafe de klos.
Catch train to Centraal then just wander.

Nice and clean, good size and quiet room. Good staff. Very close to the public transport, tram 5 the best way to go to the main attractions in the center. Public parking at reasonable price. Free wifi and breakfast included.
Breakfast area too small compared to the number of rooms, it might be difficult to find a table.

This was the perfect location as it's right next door to the train station and a 5 minute ride into Amsterdam! The hotel was so clean and we felt very safe. The breakfast was delicious and more than we expected. Will definitely stay here if we come again.

Fantastic hotel, well kept and friendly staff. Breakfast free and more than adequate (continental style) Public parking charges during the week of €8.40 a day just outside but couldn't advise taking a car to Amsterdam really. Would definitely use again. Only downfall is no evening catering but have arrangement with local delivery fast food outlet or eat before returning to hotel.
