Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomPV Easter in Amsterdam
The stay at the hotel and in Amsterdam was very nice. The hotel really lived up to its reputation and the reviews I was able to read about it. In this case the location was chosen based on the location of the apartment of our daughter, so it turned out to be perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by donO56 Wonderful staff - best I've ever encountered
The staff at this hotel is absolutely first rate. There needs to be a "sixth star" on the rating rubrix for them!
From the time we walked in the door and were enthusiastically greeted to the time we left, they helped us with everything we needed, often making helpful suggestions along the way. They went a long way toward making our stay a pleasure.
The hotel itself is fine. Rooms were nice and typically smaller than those in the US, but servicable and clean. It is easy to use this hotel to tour Amsterdam as it is immediately adjacent to a tram (line 5) and metro stop which can take you right into Amsterdam proper or to Amsterdam Zuid rail station which is a major stop on the Dutch rail network. There is also a small supermarket in a row of shops nearby.

Just finished a three night stay at this property and enjoyed each day. Our check in went very smooth and we were in our room within minutes of entering the lobby. The room was very nice and was adequate for our stay. The hotel is located in a very quiet neighborhood so no noise disturbed us at anytime during our stay. There is a tram line close to the hotel that allows access to the central area of town (Tram 5). The front desk has tickets to the tram and we were able to purchase there. Within a 2-3 minute walk of the hotel we found a supermarket, 3 restaurants, and several other shops. Most impressive was the staff: each time we had a question they had the correct answer! These ranged from how to use the parking meter for street parking, how to validate our tram ticket, and which tram stop had good food selections. The hotel itself is in great shape and is well kept. Breakfast had several options and was well presented. Great stay and looking forward to another visit.
Alma was at the front desk and did a great job with our questions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great deal just outside of city center
The staff and service at the Holiday Inn Express-South were excellent! I needed to get in to my room early, and they were able to make it a priority. They spoke excellent English and articulated several suggestions for travel and activities. I would recommend adding the exact Tram stop name, to have give details on the Tram from the Train Station, as there are many close stops on the way, but identifying the one in front of the hotel is best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Annavdm88 Great hotel!
Even though we only stayed in the hotel for one night, we had a great stay.
At check in, the front office lady was very friendly and provided us with more information about the city and how to get there by public transportation. You can even get the 24-hour/48-hour tickets there.
The interior of the hotel is very nice. Clean, modern and cosy. We had a Heineken at the bar and chatted with the receptionists about the To Do's in the city. Even though they were working, they took the time to give us more information.
The breakfast was fine to our opinion, a typical continental breakfast.. they have yoghurt, fresh milk, cereals, bread, croissants, Dutch Cheese and loads more.
The rooms are modern and clean and the shower is great!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jvcco Great Stay!!
The service, friendly atmosphere, helpfull staff make this hotel a great choice when in Amsterdam.
Conveniently located off the A 10 in a quieter area of the city, this location is perfect if you want to explore Amsterdam and the surrounding suburbs. Trems and buses are within a 2 minute walk away and will take you anywhere in the city. Parking is ample and convenient. Staff are all fluent in at least 2 languages of which English is one.
Nearby are shopping facilities that will provide all your needs while travelling, some within a 2 minute walking distance. Excellent restaurants are nearby offering a variety of cuisine both Kosher and otherwise, just ask the front desk staff where they are.
The hotel is modern and well appointed, the rates are very reasonable for the quality of accomodation and service provided. A free buffet breakfast has a generous selection including a section of Kosher foods and utensils, you will walk away well fed and satisfied.
This was our second visit to this hotel in the last year, it will not be our last.

Whenever I get the opportunity I return to this hotel. The reason is the staff who are the most helpful, welcoming and friendly of any hotel I've stayed in. All the rest is good or better, and I've never had a reason to gripe about anything.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ilang Staff made my stay unforgettable!
I stayed at the hotel 13 days while working for my client in Amsterdam.
During my stay at the hotel room was a real pleasure thanks to clean beautiful bathroom, big and comfortable shower with proper LED lighting, working desk where I could use my laptop and a space for my documents and books.
The room was cleaned everyday and was left tidy and fresh.
But the highlight was the staff: Havi, Linda, Inge Laurien, Silvia, Jorien and Alma, were exceptionally friendly, assisting with every request, proactive, for example Havi instructed me to have my shopping in a specific store where is "sale" and even brought from home her privet coupons that granted me 20% discount. You would not expect it from hotel staff.
Alma for example recommended a very good restaurant, and provided me a card with 10% discount, where I enjoyed the food very much. Silvia and Alma checked for me opening hours of department stores.
Linda the hotel manager had searched for me a calender I needed.
Jorien trained me with Dutch.
All the staff were real friendly and attentive.
Last is the breakfast. I enjoyed eating breakfast at the hotel thanks to the variety and freshness of the food, based on Dutch cheese, dairy, ham and fresh vegetables.
Next time I intend to bring my wife with me to let her enjoy the hotel as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PMiGro Value for money
Very good city hotel in Amsterdam. Though it takes 20 minutes by metro to get to the city centre, it still is a good base for a visit to Amsterdam. Staf are exceptional friendly, public parking directly at the hotel is cheap (8,40€ per day), public transport is excellent.
Breakfast is o.k., not great, but above expectations in relation with pricing for B&B.
Nice stay at all, really can recommend it.

I arrived late on a mid week evening was was greeted by smiling helpful staff. Their language skills were superb and the information given about local travel excellent. The room was modern and clean (and everything worked). I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel and plan on using it again in the future.

As someone who has stayed here virtually every week for nearly a year, I can honestly say that this "Express" hotel punches above its weight and shows other higher grades of hotel locally how to deliver quality of service
The staff are consistently brilliant and go the extra mile
My only niggle is the thickness of the soft pillows which accounts for the sleep quality, I often resort to the small cushion at night.
The management seem to be on top of the daily running of the place and produce a pleasant atmosphere and place to stay

Very convenient hotel to do a City Trip to Amsterdam.
Located at a few steps from the Metrostation, you can reach the city centre easily, as well as the ArenA area.
Nice, clean and comfortable rooms, and good breakfast.
Probably the best Value for money in Amsterdam.
I'll do it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by agnii comfortable bed but not comfortable pillows
Everything was excellent - the hotel situation, the price level, checking in which took just a few minutes, breakfast.
The only annoying detail that all the pillows in the room are rather high (no variation). People who sleep on slim pillows (it is us) feel not comfortable.
The rest is very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bhuna Forget central, go south.
Tram 5, or Metro 51, both take you to within 1 minutes walk to the hotel and a big welcome. Hotel clean, rooms tidy and comfortable, staff smiling and helpful, breakfast fresh and tasty, shops close by, quiet and safe area around hotel and a beautiful park with rowing lake 10 minutes away.
Want to stay in central Amsterdam then fine if you want the tourist experience. Want to feel and experience the local Dutch life, then stay here.
We will again, every time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peyton Great Location for RAI, Schiphol, Financial District and City Centre
A ten minute taxi ride from the airport and I was at this clean, comfortable and conveniently located hotel.
Excellent restaurant "La Brochette" is a five minute stroll away as is the Metro and Tram station.
The RAI Centre is a 10 minute Metro ride from here as is the financial centre.The city centre a is a pleasant 20 minute tram ride. With 24 hour travel cards available at reception for just EURO7.50 (as of Sept 2013) you cannot get much better.
Breakfast is acceptable with Kosher available for any Jewish guests.
Expensive during exhibition times but your other expenses such as travel will be low.

I will recommend this hotel and will stay here if I visit Amsterdam again.
