My boyfriend and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Best Western Blue Tower. From the airport, it is a taxi ride away costing 40 euro. Once we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by the modern and spacious reception area and given a card to our room which was on the 10th floor. We had a room on one of the hotel's highest floors, so we had a great view of our surroundings.
The room was spacious and clean, although it is very dated and I believe the hotel would benefit from a slight update on the old furniture just to give a more modern feel.
The bathroom was a good size and had everything we needed, the shower was really good and we were left some miniature shampoos and shower gels to use. There was a hair-dryer but it wasn't very good, it kept cutting out after being on for around 30 seconds and took forever to dry my hair.
The hotel is located a 15 minute tram ride away from Dam Square, which we didn't mind as we really enjoyed the tram rides ( you can get tram 14 to the square, costs 2.70 euro for a single and you can get a day pass for around 7.50 euro).
This hotel is excellent value for money. We had a fabulous stay here and I can't wait to visit Amsterdam again.
