Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ptaylor28 Super little hotel. Recommended.
Stayed at hotel with family for a 3 night stay in April. Located very conveniently to tram stop 'Van Boshuizenstraat' - which is on line 5 / metro line 51. (2 minute walk), and near local amenities. Tram takes approx 15 minutes to central Amsterdam. Hotel is clean, fresh and modern, with a good choice at breakfast (croissants,bread,cheese,ham etc.). Coffee and juices were good also. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, including answering emails that I sent regarding my visit very promptly. Rooms are of a good size, with excellent showers. Overall, highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Johnnyboyyork COMFORTABLE & CLEAN HOTEL IN HANDY LOCATION
Use Reward Nights to spend a chilly Easter weekend in Amsterdam. Whilst 20 minutes from the city centre, this new-ish property is only 10 minutes or so from Schipol and within a few hundred metres of connecting Metro and tram stops. Very clean, comfortable and welcoming, I'd definitely stay again. The breakfast was good and the staff helpful. Not much immediately around the hotel other than a parade of local shops and a decent supermarket near the tram / Metro stop.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SomeoneInTheUK **Highly recommend**
Stayed in a few Holiday Inn Expresses and been very happy.
This hotel is ideally located and very close to everything.
20 mins away on the Metro the the centre.
The room was very clean and comfortable and the free wifi is a big bonus, this is often the case in hotels in Europe, it seems to be UK that insist on charging for wifi.
The breakfast offered a good choice of buffet food and the coffee was very good too.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and will definitely use this hotel again when we come back to Amsterdam.
Highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering somewhere to stay in Amsterdam.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bimly Little Gem of a Hotel
I'm not sure if I should write this in case this hotel becomes too popular.
The offerings is spot on for my needs and it ticks all the boxes against what I look for in a hotel for work
The rooms are smart, clean and tidy, with a comfortbale bed; and the shower is a delight with its size and water pressure.
The WiFi easy to use with no restrictions on devices using no silly vouchers.
The television of a good quality both in picture quality as well as channels.
But most of all the staff are just SO helpful and positive in trying to make your stay a pleasant one. The manager helps in everything from clearing up at breakfast whilst the reception staff take responsibility for issues (when they rarely arise) and do something about them.
Other hotels can learn from the team in this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JeanPaul4 Easy, affordable gateway to Amsterdam
Basic but comfortable and affordable (nearly) new hotel; outside public parking free during weekends; metro/tram stop nearby, 20-25 min to city center. Staff very friendly, breakfast OK+. Will probably come again.

This was my first trip to Amsterdam from America and I couldn't have been more impressed. The staff was absolutely wonderful and the breakfast was awesome. Loved that coffee machine... If I ever get the chance to visit your beautiful country again I will definitely stay here!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wallonne À nice stay.
However short, I had a nice stay in the Holiday Inn Express Hotel, last week. Comfort, food and atmosphere were very good and pleasant. For whom has to be in Buitenveldert, Amstelveen or in that neighbourhood, highly recommandatie.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by slater82 cozy and ... superb!
This cozy little holiday inn express, located just between amsterdam and amstelveen was much more than a surprire. it's new, fresh, 50m from tram/subay stop, conveniently located 5minutes away zuid station. Price is much cheaper than the other alternatives in the area and in the old amsterdam.. Stuff is super friendly and helpful. Even if they had a major problem during my stay they were keen to satisfy any customr expectations. The only thing i ìd say that must be improved is the breakfast because compared to other holiday inn express is a bit bare.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by USAstudent A Comfortable, Affordable Stay
I am an American doctoral student at the VU and always stay here when I travel to Amsterdam for my studies. The hotel is very convenient, a short train ride from the airport and only 2 metro stops from the VU. The staff are polite and go out of their way to serve. The rooms are comfortable, modern and very clean. The free internet is a huge help, as many hotels charge for wireless internet in the room. There are no hitches- it really is free! The breakfast options are generous and there are many options. Overall this hotel is a great find and a great value, and I am thankful for it!

I visit this hotel a few times a month. Unlike other Amsterdam hotels, the enthousiastic staf makes you feel at home. Rooms and breakfast are as you expect from the Holiday Inn Express formula very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sluykx WONDERFUL Hotel
My husband and i stayed here when we had to come for his fathers funeral. The people who work at this hotel are so wonderful, so nice, so helpful and truly caring! I travel alot and am usually quite critical of hotels but this one was so great that we bought them pastries and gave them a card. First time in my life I ever even thought of doing that. Everything from the front desk, to the maid service - everyone was great.
This is a basic hotel, but it has everything you need and they really make you feel like you're part of the family.
Can't recommend highly enough

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anda Good stay.
We stayed 4 days and we enjoyed it.
Rooms are not very big but enough for our needs. I liked the shower very much.
It is very easy to get to the city center by tram and it takes around 25min. Also you have the metro as a choice. Is not far from the airport either.
People at the reception were very nice and helpfull.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom0044 Great Friendly staff
Hotel was very clean and well maintained! Staff were EXTREMELY helpful and friendly. My only complaint was it was a ways from downtown, which made for expensive cab rides. I chose that location though, and public transportation a block away would have been alot cheaper.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by polat it was okey
Overall it was okey but i have a few comments to make.
1-Breakfast menu should be better,it was really poor.
2-Staff members should get to know better with hotel rooms,by that i mean, at check-in i asked her to give a room with a big bed and she gave me key of a room with a double separate bed.Therefore i had to go down to reception again with my luggages and change the room to a double bed.
3-I dont understand why they cannot charge the room price including city tax to travel agency.They asked me to pay the city tax eventhough i insisted on not paying it.
4-very far away from city center
5-in that location there is another holiday inn which i was mislead to that hotel first and had to take a taxi to come back to this holiday inn express hotel
6-taxi of holiday inn hotel (not the express;the one i went to first and located in same neighbourhood)doesnot give back change so make sure you give him exact money.I thought this happens only in less developed countries.He took my money where i never wanted to tip him.What a rip off!!!!! Make sure you use public transportations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CQP5 Good place if you have a car
This was a great place to stay for the price. Everything seemed new. Parking was only 10 euros a day versus 40-50 closer in. It is right near the Tram and Metro and it is easy to get in and out of the city. maybe a 20 minute ride. staff spoke very good English. There is also a good restaurant nearby - le Baguette. There is also a supermarket very near. Would be nice to have a refrigerator in room - maybe the more expensive ones have one. Beds were comfortable and it was quiet. We never knew which of our credit card would work on the trams etc so bring multiple choices!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by carrie Comfortable and cosy room with good customer service
Very clean and comfortable hotel. Friendly staff and very good customer service.
Recommendation would of been helpful to have had an email saying how near the public transport is in regard to the hotel.
This would of avoided being overcharged by a taxi driver.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by YYJ2211 Friendly and helpful staff but some hiccups
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam South from 29 Oct to 2 Nov. Generally, I found the hotel good and the staff friendly and helpful. But there were a few hiccups. On the first day of check in, the room they had reserved for me had someone living inside already, so you can imagine my shock (as well as the other party) when I opened the door. The staff was kind enough to compensate me with a complimentary drink from the bar. The other thing was that the soap dispenser in the bathroom did not work....however hard I pressed it, the soap inside would not come out. I had given some feedback on the second day but seeing nothing was done when I returned to the hotel that evening, I did not bother. I used the soap from the one at the wash basin.
Despite all these, I am still satisfied with the efficency of the staff - the check in and check out went smoothly and the room was properly cleaned every day by early afternoon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Runnerbean Great location - though out of town
This is a new hotel, and it's designed beautifully. Excellent location very close to a Metro stop (but directions on the hotel website could be better - just walk straight down the road that bisects the shopping street, - not right or left along the shop fronts.)
Pretty little district, quiet and safe. Only downside was lack of a restaurant, and the breakfast choice was a bit limited (no muesli)
But - I would definitely stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jackdaw A great Holiday Inn Express
it is a little way out of the City Centre, but with the Metro/tram stop only a 2 minute stroll from the hotel doors, and Amsterdam Public transport being cheap, frequent and reliable, it is very easy to get into the City, with the journey not being more than 10 minutes.
Also only 10 minutes from the Airport, again by public transport.
Hotel, is new and this probably accounts for its clean and fresh appearance. Rooms are excellent for the price. Only real downer is that there is no restaurant in the Hotel and there aren't really any nice ones within walking distance. Limited snacks and drinks are available in reception. There is a small bar in the reception/bar area.
Breakfast selection is very limited, bread, croissants, a little fruit, some cold meats, cheeses, jams/marmalades, hard boiled eggs and some yoghurt, some cereals, fruit juice and tea and coffee. If you are are on a lo-carb diet you are going to be eating a lot of cheese, ham and eggs. There is a supermarket within a short walk.
Other than that, there's nothing to complain about, staff are great and I enjoyed being there.
