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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MARVI city trip to Amsterdam
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 ForeverMontana Reasonable place to stay
Very friendly staff, clean and comfortable place to stay. It was very easy getting on the tram to the heart of the city. For the price I would recommend staying here.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GeeJonesy Friendly and Helpful Staff
The hotel is well located with clean comfortable rooms at a reasonable price.
Unless you get there early, breakfast is a bit of a bunfight during peak season because there are really not enough tables available. Despite this, the staff work flat out clearing tables and topping up the food platters to ensure that capacity remains at max level.
I recommend this hotel as a great place to stay and well located close to transport and shopping centre.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Giusso Great hotel just a few minutes from the center
The hotel is located in the south of the city, is located 2 min (walking) from the tram line 5 (into the center) and subway, line 51 (south train station), you can be: at the nearest train station (south) in 2 min (+8 to Schiphol), in the center, 10 min, to Central Station, 20 min. The hotel is very modern, with new interiors, clean and well kept. The room was large, bright and spacious (missing a closet), the bathroom was spacious and well kept. The cleaning service is good. The staff is very friendly and amenable (speak very good English). Continental breakfast average. Carry bicycles for hire (very practical). I would recommend it highly to anyone wishing to visit this beautiful city.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable, however the pillows were so hard that we were unable to use them. Our room did not offer any cabinets with drawers. The bathroom was very attractive, new and very clean. The breakfast buffet had a good variety of food, including some kosher items. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much.
It is a very practical hotel for business clients.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nuni18 Great stay!
The Holiday Inn Express in Amsterdam is a great place especially for people who keep mitzvot. We came for three nights, enjoyed the kosher breakfast and the helpful staff. The Eiruv in Amsterdam made it possible to take long walks on Shabbat and the room service was advised to consider the special needs for us on Shabbat.
Everything was sparkling clean, the staff was very helpful and nice: we'll stay again at the holiday inn express next time we come to Amsterdam!

Until the bed issue is resolved, I can not recommend this hotel what so ever. The quality of the mattresses is simply unexceptable for this brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WWA10 Outstanding service, clean and modern, a couple of small glitches
The front desk staff was outstanding, and gladly answered our questions on public transportation, museums, restaurants, etc. The room was clean, comfortable and modern. The front desk staff addressed the two small glitches we encountered. When the room we were assigned turned out not to be made up despite what the computer said, the front desk staff assigned us another room after checking that it was made up, gave us complimentary drinks, and helped us move our luggage. They were similarly responsive when the soap dispenser in the washroom stopped working.

Very nice hotel with very friendly staff. The room is comfortable and clean and it has a very nice bathroom with a fantastic walk-in shower. Internet is free and the breakfast is good. Close to the tram and metro station (Van Boshuizenstraat) and you take the no. 5 tram from Amsterdam Centraal or the no. 51 metro. Also a supermarket close to the hotel. Nice area to go for a run. Overall a very nice and clean hotel. Thank you!!
May be a safe in the room is a good idea.
