Hotel ibis styles Amstel, stadhouderskade 131, amsterdam is a completly renovated hotel in the city centre about 15 minutes by foot from the Stedelijk Museum and the Rijksmuseum. Be aware that here is another Ibis Styles hotel at number 135, so this review only concerns Ibis Styles Amstel. The hotel was reopened in (December?) 2013 after it is placed in the management of the Accor Group. It is located opposite one of Amsterdam’s many canals and in short distance from the river Amstel. There is a good connection with the Central Train station (tram number 4, two minutes from the hotel) and with other important places to visit. You enter the hotel via a short staircase (I am not sure that there is an elevator). In the lobby you will find a drinks vending machine and the desk. There is only a breakfast room downstairs, so you cannot have lunch or dinner which does not matter at all because there are several restaurants nearby. There is a small parking near the hotel.
Check in/check out went very smoothly and staff is very kind and helpful.
We asked for a quiet room and we got one (105). It is a medium seized room, very well decorated and it has a double bed with excellent mattresses. Opposite the bed there is a large LCD TV with a lot of channels in different languages. There is a linen cupboard with a safe in it, and a long work surface with tea/coffee facilities on it. A small negative point is the poor lighting of the work surface. The room has textile floor coverings. There is no fridge or minibar, but a very well working air-conditioner. The room is very well soundproofed and our room had a view on the small parking place. The bathroom is not large but very well equipped (soap, shampoo, hairdryer) with an excellent working shower. There even is a safety grip at the wall. Although not necessarily, towels are changed every day. Room and bathroom are impeccable clean.
The warm and cold breakfast buffet is very good and is included in the price of the room. There are several kinds of bread, meat and cheese products, fresh fruit, Greek yoghurt and cereals. Coffee is really good.
We were able to take advantage of a special offer (118,65 euro for two nights including breakfast), but even at the normal rate, the hotel is very recommendable because of its good quality.
Personal note: as this is my 100th review on Tripadvisor, I am glad to offer you a positive one.
