NH Marquette was a cheap place for us to stay whilst visiting Amsterdam. The transport links are very bad with only two buses to the train station per hour and the buses stop running early;as a result we would have to leave the city in the early evening. The journey would take about 1hr 45 after waiting for trains and buses. The buses are expensive (2.90 euros each way), the trains cost 10.50 euros return.
The hotel is situated in the woods, there is no security for the hotel and there is no lights leading to the hotel; it was very scary to walk through the pitch black woods at night and in the early morning.
There was only one member of staff whom we found helpful, the rest were arrogant and rude. The hotel staff would think nothing of interrupting your questions and giving short patronising answers. I asked to book a taxi (to prevent walking through the woods at night) the answer: 'the taxi will not come', when asked if they could provide information about the what to do in the surrounding area, or the transport times the answer was 'no'. Be careful if you book through 'late rooms' as breakfast is not included and costs 15 euros.
The room was nice although it was not cleaned and the beds were uncomfortable.
Not good for female travellers.
