“Sewer smell in the showers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

A serious drainage smell in the building. My kid and I were unable to breath on our last night. The smell of sewer coming out the shower area was horrible. My sons eyes are still red from the smell. I noticed a plumbers truck in front of the hotel but the problem was not fixed. The experience of little sleep affected negatively our overall trip to Amsterdam as we were tired and my son waa agitate and complaining abt his eyes

Thank you for your review. I'm aware this was a bad experience for you and I'm very sorry for the inconvenience. We had a problem with the waterlocks in the showers, so the smell from the sewer came into the room. I hope your son is doing wel again. Kind regards, Ron de Graaf

Good price for an expensive city. Shuttle to Schipol and metro runs frequently. Breakfast is kind of a ripoff. Overall, not many complaints. Don't expect luxury here. Just use your room as a crash pad and spend your time exploring an amazing city.

Fantastic price and good for a short stay, however when we arrived the staff was not friendly. When we were checked in, the room was not clean! Although staff moved us to another room , then the AC was not working.
Free WI-FI which is great, free shuttle to Schipol airport runs every 20 mins(fast and convenient).

I did see rats outside the hotel crawling around which kind off put me off eating anything from there!.

Seating area outside the hotel for fresh air at night and beautiful sunlight.

Also when I requested for extra pillow, I was offered more towels to use it as pillows! Not satisfactory!

Recommend it for short stay but watch out for 17 euros parking charges! (Parking expensive).

Stayed here before and has not changed. It is cheap, basic and does the trick.

Free pendles to airport upto 01:00 and this starts at 05:00, so if you want you can visit Amsterdam and use this as a base.

Enjoy your trip and be safe

Stayed with family for one night. Very easy to find using Sat Nav from the airport. Staff friendly in reception and Hotel was quiet with an uninterrupted nights sleep. Paid extra for a breakfast which was a basic buffet, all fresh food etc. Shuttle bus comes frequently and takes you 10 minutes or so to the airport where you get the main trains into Amsterdam center (short journey).
Paid about 10 euros return ticket but no one ever checked the tickets.
No air con in room but we didn't need it as it wasn't to warm for us.
Rooms are small but we knew this. They are modern/functional and clean. We stayed in lots of places this summer and for the price, this Ibis and those in Germany cannot be matched.
Only gripe was the parking charge which was around 18 euros overnight (check site for accurate cost). Other Ibis' where free.
One TA review advised leaving cars in McDonald's but this is a 6/7 minute walk away and unsecured. I also spoke to one of the restaurant staff who said I could leave the car, but they shut at 3am and then the Police patrolled due to the proximity to the airport. How they would deal with and abandoned hire car is anyone's guess, so we didn't leave it.

I would like to thank you for choosing our hotel as your accomodation choice during your recent visit to Amsterdam. It's good to hear you are satisfied about my staff and the hotel. I understand your remarks about the parkingfee but the prices are conform in this area and we have to follow it. We try to communicate the price as much as possible to prevent this to be a surprise for our guests.
Thank you for your review and hope to see you back in the future. Best regards, Ron de Graaf
