Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Junglebook Great staff. & Service
Location is perfect for The RAI. The trams and train are a 5 minute walk and the tram takes you on a nice sight seeing journey towards city centre and tickets are available at the reception.
Thank you for the lovely stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solihull2 Very nice stay , very helpful staff
Enjoyed a weekend at this hotel. Arrived very early on Saturday and the receptionist very kindly let us check in as the room was available.
Nice room on priority floor, large clean bathroom.
Extensive and very fresh breakfast on the Sunday morning available until a very pleasant 11.30. Pleasant breakfast room.
No noise at all, very large comfy bed.
A bit of a way from centre of town, but the tram stop is right by the hotel ,also train to airport. It's the end of the line for tram 4 so never a problem getting in and out of town if you buy day or two day ticket it is much easier than taxis. Quite fun.
Only negatives - thought the reception alittle dated and there is a large pool at front of hotel which had a lot of rubbish in and really should be cleaned it doesn't give a very positive first impression and wouldn't take a lot of doing. Also the cigarette ends outside.
Had a good time . Thanks

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Crystal6 Very disappointed in room
NO toiletries in bathroom. Had to phone Reception at 06:00 to ask for basic supply of soap, shampoo, tissues.
Bath tub would not empty of water, drainage problem.
Second and third days of stay again no supplies in bathroom: empty soap and shampoo containers, tissue box left completely empty. Surely these are 'basic' hotel supplies to guests?
Central heating did not work so room cold.
Flickering bulb in small table lamp and standard lamp bulb not working.
Room not very clean.
Could hear lift doors opening as room opposite lifts.
However, reception and dining room staff helpful and friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PlatinumOla Saturday Night in Amsterdam
The room was fine, however, some smell in the bathroom comming from one of the drains. It dissapeared when after I used the shower.
The staff were nice and friendly, however, I got the feeling that whatever I did it would cost extra money abd the bill showed me they have really good control of all the consumption.
Hotel is OK for business, but I will not go ther for relax again, because of the experience with extra costs, which is common for all Holiday Inn hotels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Room
Room 310, Room size and comfort is good and well. The television is quit old and it not easy to read the informations on the screen. For shower the max. water was not enough, a little bit more water would be nice. The heating system was not working well, the room was a little bit to cold but I could not find a controller to change the temperature in this room. A second blanked would be nice. But overall it was nice to stay in your hotel. There are only very small points to make a stay more comfertable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrsCheggy Great stay
Welcoming and helpful staff upon arrival. Also friendly and helpful advice on places to visit trams etc. good choice of food at breakfast. Room seemed to be a little cold at times and we couldn't adjust the settings but it wasn't enough to complain about. Unfortunately we didnt try the food in the evening because we had eaten out during the day. Wish we had known where the small shopping mall was. Hotel is a bit far out but it was nice to be out of the hustle and bustle with easy access via the trams which were close by.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hristo Noisy and with very poor price-value ratio
To be honest at first I was looking forward to a very comfortable stay in Holiday Inn. The price per night was an indication for a very comfortable and even luxurious stay. But what happened in fact was that there was no free wifi/internet in the rooms. Also the air conditioning was very noisy and I had to turn it off if I wanted to sleep. This of course resulted in a cold room and uncomfortable sleep. Also the fan in the bathroom was constantly on producing noise as well.
Overall I want stay in Holiday Inn next time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 123BH Acceptable & very convenient to RAI
Overall an acceptable experience. Very friendly staff. Only two negatives:
1) TV isn't much - small and not good quality. Lots of steps just to watch something.
2) Overcharged: while trying to navigate the TV menus to select channels by language, I somehow hit the internet function. I didn't even realize it until checkout. Cost me 5 euros and they would not even discuss removing that charge.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Terrific if you need to be south
Stayed here for 3 nights - my company office is around the corner, which makes it very convenient. Aside from that convenience, restaurants and other businesses are not really close by, making a tram or cab ride a necessity.
Wifi and hard wired internet would drop periodically.
Facilities are just fine, staff is very friendly and helpful.
Would recommend for those of you needing to be south of the canals...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by picmartin Remains a good hotel but why don't they change the noise of the airco and the very bad quality of the tv.
Stayed here a few times already and we like the hotel. Upgrade to executive room is very welcome. As is the quality of the extra wine we receive!
Staff very friendly. Professionals!
But please change the quality of the televisions. Flat screens but reception is very bad.
Airco in our room was noisy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LVZnBKV Americans in Amsterdam
This hotel lived up to our expectations of Holiday Inn. The room was well appointed and comfortable and the staff was quite pleasant and helpful. The breakfast bar was excellent and started each of our 2 days in Amsterdam well. Public transportation is very near the hotel (about 3 minute walk to nearest tram station and 5 minutes to the train). It is also located near the highway for easy access. All in all, a great stay in a great city.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by peasfield Staff very friendly and helpful
The Holiday Inn Amsterdam is a modern hotel with all the normal facilities. I particularly liked the bar which had a friendly and relaxing
air about it. The reception staff were very helpful and most friendly. The room was spacious and comfortable. I did not appreciate having to pay Euro 29 just to watch normal TV and chose not to.
The bed was enormous but I didn't like the four small pillows as my head get falling off of them. I would have preferred normal size pillows. The extractor fan in the bathroom remained on all night which I found irritating especially as I suffer with Tinnitus and any constant noise is very disturbing. I realised that to stop everything from working I should have removed the key card from the mains slot. Fortunately with the bathroom door shut the extractor fan noise was minimal. I cannot comment on the restaurant as it was fully booked. All in all I liked the Holiday Inn and would stay again on my next visit to Amsterdam.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by picmartin One of the better Holiday Inns, very well located between the city centre and Schiphol airport.
We stayed a few times already and we like the hotel.
Being a platinum member we get a wonderful upgrade to an executive room. Staff at the desk helpfull and friendly. Overall very friendly.
We often arrive late and hurry to the bar for a good glass of the housewine and the late night snacks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kuifje92 Great and...great
We just spent a few nights (breakfast included) but everything was great: the staff was really nice and comprehensive, the room was clean (and cleaned everyday) and quiet.
Breakfast was very good too, an all-you-can-eat buffet with various choices.
Even if it the hotel is located in the south of Amsterdam, it's not really a problem because a tram and a metro station are very close.
Only one thing was missing... free wifi at least in the lobby? (too expensive)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pjv22 Great service at good location
We were here for a weekend. The staff at the reception was very friendly and helpfull. The bed was very comfy and the room was nice.
The public transport was closeby so within 15 minutes we were in the centre of Amsterdam.
Breakfast was good. Enough choiche. Only the number of seats could be better.

I thought Holiday Inn was a budget style hotel but this was quite the opposite with a lovely room and bathroom. The staff were extremely helpful with travel advice both before my visit and during my stay. The location is very convenient for both the airport and city centre with extremely good transport links. Would definitely stay here again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Travel803 Not a pleasant stay
Great place to sleep ONLY... Other than that, the food was too expensive compared to what you got out in town. Wifi Internet didn't work. Not enough towels in the room. AC unit was broken for 2 days and there were no type of compensation offered by the hotel for the discomfort.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPRS Being the Tourist
I get to Amsterdam on business a lot but now took my family to do a tourist long weekend.
What a great city and what a fantastic location the Holiday Inn has to do this.
Walking, biking, taxi or most practical The Tram to go around town.
Staff is great, very friendly, rooms spacious and very clean. Breakfast has a large selection (although some more cereals appreciated) and is efficiently run.
Nice bar for unwinding.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Blackman Small room but good service!
We recently booked a double queen room and enjoyed the stay overall. About 10 minutes walking distance are a lot of different restaurants. About 5 minutes to the tram No 4 which brings you within 15-18 minutes all the way through town to the central station. The service of the front desk was really good and the breakfast left no wishes open. Breakfast was very good for 10Euro/person and I would definitely recommend it! Negative about this hotel were only a few things: - Room size: The rooms are nice but our double queen room was so small that we had to manuver around each other to get to the bathroom. The parking space on the hotel parking lot is very limited (25 - 30cars) and it cost 20 Euro extra plus fees and taxes a total of 29 EURO/night. There is parking garage right at the hotel but it's 40 Euro a night!! Nobody mentioned the limited parking lot or the costs upfront. Well, we learned something again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Conventioneer Good hotel convenient to RAI
The WiFi in the room would have been expensive but it didn't work at all and so cost nothing. Most similar hotels would have had free wi-fi in the lobby but it was not available. There was one free terminal in the business center. The amenities that one would expect at a Holiday Inn in the US were not present. (shampoo and conditioner). The towel supply was sparse. Only one bath towel and one face towel was supplied in a double room until an additional towel was requested. No wash cloth.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JuhaS WiFi
WiFi was much expensive. 22 euros for 24 hours is too much. Many hotels offer free WiFi or just like 5 euros/ 24 hours.
Same problem was in England when we tour there. "Rahastuksen makua" as we Finns say.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Emma2013 Disapoining dinner and WiFi
Dinner in the resturant was ok, but very ordinary, and not worth the prize.
Internet connection did not work well, slow and often disconnected itself (i could check my emails, but not work like i needed). Most hotell have free WiFi today, so 20 euros for a bad connection was a disapoinment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChateauClark Great practical stay!
Spend a saturday night at the hotel because I needed to be in A'dam city center.
Checked in by a lovely girl with a big smile on her face which went smoothly. Had a room next to the elevators but didn't hear a sound when i was inside the room. Nice size room with a big bathroom and a nice view. It's located a 3 minutes walk from the A'dam RAI station which was great. Taxi to Leidscheplein was only 12 € in the middle of the night and only 7 minutes away. Breakfast was perfect. Nice freshly made eggs, fresh ruit to make pressed juice and a huge variety of warm and cold products.
As I was a bit late for my train I asked the reception if I could have an express check-out which lasted not more than 2 minutes which made me get to my train in time!!! Thanks alot.
