“God one at a god price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Nice hotel not very far from the center.
It takes about 20 min with the tram. Staff is really friendly and helpful! Breakfast was ok.
Would recommend anybody to stay when in Amsterdam!
Parking is 8 euros for one day but it is on the street. The staff said its a god area and we did not have any incident.

Stayed July 2014

We stayed as a family with 2 kids for 6 nights. The service was excellent and staff very attentive and helpful as many have mentioned and they do really help. The entire staff from breakfast, cleaning and reception were fantastic and made you feel welcomed indeed.

Good points: close to tram station and shops, well stocked supermarket and a few good restaurants with a great Japaneses rest called Kagetsu directly across on the opposite side of tram station. Also a great community centre comprising of cinema, large shopping centre, library, kids playground, farmers market at the end stop Amstelveen in the opposite direction away from Amsterdam Central. We easily spent a day here and it was so pleasant to be in a local environment without the crowds.

The breakfast selection was good but needed some variation after a few days.The free wifi was reliable and fast with public terminals available.


Not so good points: Our room was right next to the entry which meant that each time someone opened the foyer door and subsequent slam meant that our room would shake with a very loud bang. I think this is due to the module construction of the hotel but it got very annoying esp at nights when the room would shake and the door would thump again. I would suggest asking for a room away from the entry and also a room on a higher level as the rooms are dimly lit.
It would be best to ask for a softer pillow if firm pillows are not your preference as the bedding tends to be a bit stiff overall.

The room decor was generic and could probably do with some luggage benches and some hooks in the bathroom to hang clothes. Other than that, it was an okay stay, not really memorable but just comfortable enough to get by. But the staff are great.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor- less noise.

Stayed for two nights and had a great time. Hotel staff is very helpful and rooms were clean and tidy. Hotel is just two blocks from the tram and the #5 goes right into the city all the way to Centraal Station. Excellent value and the peace and quiet was appreciated after a long day walking around Amsterdam.

Would stay here again!

Room Tip: By a one or two day travel pass good for all tram and buses into and around the city.

We stayed in this hotel during Easter 2014 for 3 nights. The location is very good and well connected by the tram to the Amsterdam central. The breakfast is good at the hotel too.
They have an excellent staff who is very helpful. We traveled with our 1 year old son and repeatedly asked them to for help in heating the milk and they always were ready to help with a smile on the face.

We drove from UK to Amsterdam and found it difficult to find a hotel in the city centre reasonably priced with parking so decided, with some reservations, to stay 3 miles out at the Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam - South (5-10min drive to centre). The reception was excellent the hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful. The bedroom was lovely the only downside for some may be the very limited open hanging space and no drawers only shelving but this wasn't a problem for us as we lived mainly out of our suitcase for only four nights. The ensuite had plenty of space for toilet bags etc.and a very good large walk in shower. Towels and linen were excellent. The hotel is in a quiet district with 3 restaurants and a takeaway within easy walking distance but be prepared for higher priced restaurants than in the UK! There are a few shops and a supermarket in a square almost outside the hotel. The tramline into Amsterdam is also nearby. Hotel's continental breakfast was perfect for us, good quality fresh tomatoes, cucumber, cold meats, cheese, bread etc. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for a conference at the RAI. An interesting place. It's kind if in the middle of a small suburb with no other hotels, restaurants etc,

Pros
Breakfast included in price
Breakfast is nice
Service was good
15-20 mins from city on tram
Right opposite a tram stop
Clean and modern rooms

Cons
Small reception/bar area
No gym
No iron in room
No safe in room
Have to get a tram to the RAI
Between rooms are quiet but noisy from corridor
No bars/restaurants immediately nearby

Overall, I'd stay here again as a tourist if you'd want to be out of town but wouldn't stay here for a conference at the RAI due to the commute (albeit short)

I was on a cycle touring holiday of the Netherlands with 5 friends and our first stopover was at the Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam South. What a great choice it was! We were allowed to store our bicycles safely within the hotel, the rooms were spotlessly clean and the breakfast was superb. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
