Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveRon A new Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a wonderful city, but over many years I have found the hotels to be cramped, expensive, and with miserable hosts. This hotel is a joy. Smiling staff, good sized rooms, and decent breakfasts set up the days with fantastic transport links. Buy a local transport ticket at the front desk 1/2/3 days 7.5/12/16 euros. Tram 12 across town, bus 48 to the main station in 20 minutes, metros to the city borders. Trains are extra, but unnecessary. Good BBC 1 and 2 reception. Nice bar area. Lifts straight from transport to rooms. Area a bit bland, but the frequent transport compensates. Don't book here - you'll push up the prices!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob235 Staff were fantastic
I would never usually write a review but felt I should say how great the staff were. Very friendly and helpful - nothing too much trouble. Compared to other Holiday Inn Expresses I have stayed in I thought the breakfast was excellent. If you have stayed in a Holiday Inn Express before, you know the choice is relatively limited, however it was all fresh & very tasty. My son (8 yrs old) absolutely loved it. Felt this hotel is a real credit to the chain.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great hotel...let down by the beds
I've stayed here a couple of times recently and was expecting too be there most weeks for a couple of months.
This is a great hotel in a poor location (but with good public transport). It's VERY clean and i like the overall decoration.
BUT, the beds are really not good. Hard, lumpy and the hotel isn't even that old.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Other minor gripes .... the Internet access isn't very fast, but it is free. Breakfast is ok (and free) but the selection isn't great (after a couple of weeks), but they really need a better coffee machine. Rooms can be a bit noisy (from the station) but the rooms away from the station are reasonable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reiziger2014 clean and comfortable room
very friendly welcome at the reception desk and at breakfast.
Room was clean and comfortable. Coffee and tea making facilities in the room.
Public transport to Amsterdam centre: frequency trains good. After 5 minutes destination Amsterdam Central Station is reached!
Also connection by bus and tramway.
Overall we had a good stay at this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by yossis great service but low quality mattresses
Beyond its very convenient location with respect to the airport, as the title declares the service is good and professional as the global value of the hotel. Yet I should indicate that the quality of the mattresses is inadequate to the above.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vandi04 Good - as I expected
You get the expectable quality like Holiday Inn Expresses - I like these kind of hotels all over Europe. The room is good and clean, the breakfast is good, the location is excellent - everything is there: bus, tram, metro and train. But the room isn't noisy. The staff coluld be a little bit friendly, but nothing else negative. I recommend this hotel absolutely.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sigrungudm Perfect for city trips in Amsterdam
We really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn in Sloterdijk. It is situated next to the trainstation, which you don't hear, by the way. The room and bathroom are as they should be and you can even make your own tea or coffee in your own room, when you wish to. The breakfast was very nice (except perhaps of the odor of the burned bread that accidentily happened to burn when we were feching our breakfast). It had all you could wish for and was fresh and the restaurant was comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpfull.
What can I say, except that we will return!
