“Nice enough hotel but a long way out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We stayed here two night and had two rooms, one for me and my husband and one for my two teenagers. They hotel staff were very welcoming and put us in rooms quite close to each other. The rooms were of an average size and the bathrooms had good facilities. Everything was very clean and modern. The wifi was not very reliable and better in one room than the other.
The hotel calls itself an art hotel and the lobby and restaurant are dotted with works of art, both paintings and sculptures. Our breakfast was included as a deal in the price we paid, which was good because it was very expensive otherwise, although there was plenty of choice.
The staff were very helpful.
If this hotel was nearer to the center of Amsterdam I would definately stay again, but it is at least a ten minute walk to the nearest tramstop and then a half an hour ride to get anywhere near the center of Amsterdam, longer if you want to go to the trainstation.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. It is very modern and a fun place to stay. Public spaces are light and airy and the art work is colourful. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The rooms are quite large and the beds are really comfortable. Although it is located on a Business Park (near IBM Centre) it is more leafy than we imagined. Plenty of trees around and some very pretty water features. The area is semi-residential - lots of apartments and it is very peaceful. The walk to the Tram was quite pleasant - ducks in the waterways - someone was even fishing! It is a safe area to stay - families out of their bikes and dog walkers gave the place a relaxed feel. Service in the hotel was excellent and all staff spoke English. Breakfast was really good - lots of choice hot and cold. There is a small fitness room and you can hire bikes from reception. There are lots of quite cycle paths to enjoy - not like central Amsterdam where cycle lanes are busy. There are no shops, restaurants or pubs nearby. Prices for food and drinks were ok - average for 4 stars. TRANSPORT: there is a 195 bus from Airport that drops you off at IBM Cente at stop John M Keynesplain - it costs 4 euros for a single. It is a 3 mins walk from the bus stop. Do note that there is NO AIRPORT bus on a Sunday. Only sensible route is to get a Taxi - it cost 30 euros. OTHER BUSES - there is a 145 bus that stops outside the hotel (it does not run at the weekends) It stops near the side of the hotel that has a water feature and outdoor seating. Do note that is runs every 30 mins. It will take you into central Amsterdam - we got off at Museumplein. Tip: Amsterdam is so compact you can walk most places. so we did not bother with day ticket which is 7.5 euros. A single to Museumplein was 2 euros - we found this was best for us. The bus takes 20 mins to get to Museumplein and it goes through the suburbs - very pretty! Lots of nice small shops to see. TRAM - No 2 runs every 10 mins to the Centre - fare is 2.80 euros for a one hour ticket single. Again we found it cheaper just to get 2 singles and then walk the rest. It is a really easy walk to the Tram - max of 10mins. Bus is better for when it rains (it did). It took a little time to work out transport but hotel is so good it was worth the extra time travelling. We would return!
Only problem we had was that we could not get sound on TV - despite seeking help from staff. It was not a problem - not much time to watch TV! There is plenty to see and do in Amsterdam and no shortage of nice places to eat! Great time had despite the wet weather!

Room Tip: Rooms are great - nicely decorated and they have tea and coffee facilities. Bathrooms are good. Al...

We arrived to Artemis after a 19 hour plane ride and it was a welcome sight.
Great Things about Artemis:
- Very Clean and comfortable rooms
- A/C
- Great WIFI connection
- Beautiful Grounds
- Helpful staff that new english and several other languages
- Good prices

We gave up location, but the tram into town was a 10 min walk and gave us a glimpse of all areas of Amsterdam which made our next day plan easy to find.

We saved about 60 euros on cab fare from airport since the Artemis in only 10 mins from the airport. We did not see the location as such a negative after our stay,

I was in this Hotel with other 8 colleagues as we were participating to a Trade-show in Amsterdam.
This Hotel is not safe as you risk to be face to face with people that enter in your room to stole valuable things and especially money. This is the way in which it happens: you go to have your breakfast, you are forced to give your room number. While you are spending your time having Breakfast somebody enters in your room and stole valuable things and money. This happened to me, to two other colleagues and other persons in the same day. By surfing the web I found that other people had similar problem with this hotel. To another person stole a MONTBLANC pen, but for me and my wife was even worse. In fact they stole two MAC 15" retina, one iPAD and 550 euro and to another colleague 190 euro.
Here is the link with the POLICE REPORT:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/46598171/artemis.pdf

I did the report to police, but I am sure that other persons have been stolen of money, but they did not did any report to Police as they realized the theft happened only later and probably they did not connect to the hotel. In fact in the Hotel they are so good that, after having stolen the money, they put everything in very good order; the result is that you go to Tradeshow (in our case) or to town (if you are a tourist) and you will discover about the theft only very late and much probably you will think that your money has been stolen in the Tradeshow or in the restaurant, etc.

This Hotel is NOT SAFE.
Escape this hotel. can you imagine if you or your wife or you child find somebody in your room with your wallet in his hand?

Finally

Two of my colleagues reported that their room was not cleaned and was not cleaned even after their complaint.

The hotel is far from the center but very comfortable. The room was bigand clean. It had a coffe/tea set.
Near the elivator there was an ice machine
The only thing was that it didn't have any supermarket nearby.

We have just returned from this hotel and have got to say we couldn't fault it at all. We booked directly through the hotel website and got a package for £140 for friday and saturday night which included breakfast on both mornings and a meal at there sister hoter Dee poort brassiere in Amsterdam. We arrived at the hotel at about 9.30am after getting the bus number 195 from the airport. We was just hoping to leave our bags but they actually let us check into our rooms then.
The tram line is easy to walk to and it only takes about 15 mins to amsterdam. The breakfast at the hotel was very good with lots of choice cheeses, meats,streaky bacon, various eggs veal sausages, fruit and lots of breads. The free meal we got was excellent we had a soup as starter and we got a steak chips and pepper sauce. This was the best steak we have had in a long time.
When we was checking out we had to leave at 6 in the morning so we arranged for a taxi to take us which was 25 euros which i didn't think was to bad. As we was going so early we would miss breakfast so they do a breakfast box which we asked for and there was lots in there and you can take it in the airport with you.
overall I couldn't fault this hotel at all the staff was all helpful the rooms where excellent only advise would be to take your own iron as theres wasn't good at all.

I had a very enjoyable stay here, the breakfast was very good the staff were super helpful and it was only a short bus, tram or taxi ride into town, the bus and tram being very much cheaper. The hotel is very modern and is also very clean and tidy. The beds are nice and comfortable, the actual bedrooms are very spacious and the bathrooms are very clean and functional.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, you won't be disappointed.
