Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by greenee Fantastic Location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the HIExpress. Public transport was outside our door and offered an excellent service.
The hotel itself was everything we expected it to be and we will definitely consider staying in one of your hotels in future. There is nothing we could fault.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BBruce What a great hotel!
The hotel was very close to Sloterdijk Station which is located about a minute walk from the hotel and you can reach Amsterdam Central in 5 minutes from this train station. Despite this there is no noise from the trains at all in the hotel. All the staff in the hotel from our reservation stage to the departure were all very friendly and helpful. Our first contact during the reservation stage was with Carolina who was extremely friendly and professional and sorted our reservation very efficiently despite all the date changes, etc. Breakfast is served until noon on weekends which is fantastic and offers a great choice continental with fresh bread and pastries as well as a nice selection of cereals. The coffee machines are good and you can have as many cups as you like. There is a bar with a nice selection of drinks and some snacks as well. Wi-fi was free and quite reliable. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family that's for sure.

Really enjoyed our clean and large room. The location can't be beat. Right outside the train and bus station. Made getting into the center of Amsterdam extremely easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suha Excellent choice
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location is excellent. Bus 48 is right outside the hotel entrance and takes you to central station and dam square in 12-15 minutes. You can also take the train and the metro which are all right outside. By train, you are only 5 minutes away from the central station. Also, the hotel is ideally located next to the airport (10 minutes by train). Breakfast is cheeses and ham, cucumbers and tomatoes, yogurt, milk, a variety of bread, cereals, fruits, jam, butter, hot drinks and juices. In the rooms, there is no fridge but you can make coffee or tea. The hotel is super clean. There are no restaurants in the area so you need to eat outside before you head back to the hotel area. The pillows are too soft so for those who are used to harder pillows. Overall, it was a great choice and I would definitely go back.

My bathroom had no towels and after check in I claim it immediately. It was said that they had problems with it but will be supplied automatically later to my room. After my return at abt 21.30h I found still no towels. I complaint again and only then they were provided. In addition to this I realized the next morning while being under the shower that the soap/shampoo box was empty.

Un hotel con una limpieza impecable. Instalaciónes en muy buen estado, y personal muy amable. Quiero destacar especialmente la amabilidad de un empleado venezolano que nos atendió durante el desayuno (no recuerdo su nombre ahora).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Airprox Convenient location, fairly modern HIX
Conveniently located next to Sloterdijk station so has the advantage of slightly lower prices than staying in the city while still having mainline trains (2 stops to Schiphol, 1 stop to Centraal), trams and buses right outside the door.
Modernised HIX rooms (the ones with the blue furniture and the black and white bathrooms), with a large shower in the bathroom instead of a bath which is great.
WiFi reliable, doesn't sign you out every 30 mins, pretty fast, and free, couldn't ask for more on that front.
Staff very friendly. Unfortunately in the summer the hotel gets very warm, particularly on the sunny side, and the ventilation/aircon in the rooms is poor. Reception asked at check in if I would mind being on the warm side or if I would prefer the shady side which is slightly noisier due to being on the train tracks side of the building. While it is nice to be asked, what I would prefer is a room on the quiet side with proper air conditioning so that I can cool the room myself!
Hotel has it's own car park but if you have a car it is cheaper to park in the NS car park at the station (other side of the station to the hotel) and walk over.
Would definitely recommend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sdsleuth Stay away
I stayed for two nights in four different rooms. The first night the floor had a stain on the carpet and chunks left over from what ever caused the stain. I was disgusted that the staff would consider that clean. We requested and received a new room.
I checked out the following morning but loved Amsterdam so much we decided to spend an extra night. Sincem y car was still in the garage we stayed at the same hotel.
This time around the problem was the bed. My wife could not sleep because the springs could be felt nearly puncturing the mattress. Again we had to change rooms.
How could a respected hotel chain allow their properties and staff fal into such disrepair. I will never stay at that hotel again and I do plan on visiting Amsterdam many more times.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lingrinhas Lack of Staff and Poor Cleaning
During summer time it is obvious the lack of enough personnel for the number of customers. This aspect is quite visible in the front desk and breakfast area.
Regarding cleaning. The room was not properly clean on a daily basis.

I found the staff very polite and helpful. They promptly dealt with my only complaint, which was about a problem with drainage of water from the shower.
As usual at Holiday In Express, the buffet breakfast was excellent.
The room was very comfortable. The view was disappointing, but it would be difficult to move the power station and wind turbines that industrialised a beautiful sunset!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awakenings1 Great hotel, great location
This hotel is excellent. Just 1 stop from Centraal, great staff, great rooms and a good ambiance.
Sloterdijk station is just next to the hotel where there is a small supermarket and some other take-away places if you are hungry!
Would also recommend this for anybody attending the Awakenings festival as the buses to the festival leave from the front of the hotel.

Egal ob auf der Durchreise oder fuer einen laengeren Aufenthalt - die Lage und Effizienz dieses Hotels und va die gute ANbindung zu Flughafen und Bahnhof sind perfekt.
Auch die Betten sind mehr als komfortable und ein gut beleuchtetes und frauenfreundliches Bad!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Breeze81 Noisy room and problem with shower
The room was noisy because of train noise during night. The temperature of the water from the shower fluctuated between cold and hot each minute, and the technician was not able to resolve the problem. When I asked to change my room, there were no other double room available, except for one which had a very bad quality and the walls were chipped and broken.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by torebaynag short stay only
a total of 27 nights were spent at this particular hotel during the last outing.
There was no soap available for the first 10 nights despite repeated requests for the same.
My drink of choice was not available for 12 of the 27 nights albeit one of the "New recruits" took it upon herself to go outside and purchase a bottle- the individual gesture was greatly appreciated- however the fact remains that the "absence of the food and beverage manager" should not have resulted in a shortage of normally stocked beverages.
Utilizing front counter staff members to multi task left myself and other patrons sitting for extended periods waiting to be served at the bar. O stock on my preferred beverage was difficult to accept however having no beer glasses available really limited options for having a sociable drink after a hard day at work.
I recently returned to the IHG brand of establishments but in all honesty can say that the most recent experience leaves me to wonder if I made a wise choice. The services offered during this stay did not appear to meet any of the standards experienced during previous stays at other IHG Hotels.

Hotel is in middle of station and was undergoing refurbishment to entrance so first impressions as have to enter through car park are not ideal. However, the stay was good and slept well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Johalope Bien comunicado, aseo y personal regular
El hotel esta muy bien conectado con la ciudad (solo 5 minutos en tren a la Estación Central). El aseo de la habitación regular, tenia polvo y un zapato de un huesped anterior y aunque informe nunca lo retiraron o limpiaron el polvo.
El desayuno esta muy bien.
Hay 2 chicas en la recepeción que son muy desatentas, hablan de mala manera y no tienen interes alguno en prestar un buen servicio, afortunadamente tienen más personal que es más amable.
Lo recomiendo aunque deben tener presente que las habitaciones no tienen nevera ni closet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by starbucks50 Sehr gute Lage
Zuerst das Positive:
Lage des Hotel mit der Anbindung an das öffentliche Verkehrssystem in Verbindung mit der Tiefgarage unschlagbar. Mit maximal 1 x umsteigen erreicht man jedes lohnenswerte Ziel (alle touristischen Highlights) in Amsterdam. Ein Bus fährt sogar direkt zur Centralstation. Bus, Tram und U-Bahn direkt vor der Tür. Die Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter waren äußerst zurvorkommend und freundlich.
Was störte sind die Baumaßnahmen im Umfeld/Außenbereich und der damit verbundene "Not"-Hoteleingang. Dafür kann das Hotel aber nichts.
Was meiner Meinung nach für Übernachtungspreise in dieser Kategorie fehlte waren eine Minibar oder zumindest ein kleiner Kühlschrank auf dem Zimmer und Toilettenartikel wie Shampoo, Seife, Lotion etc. (es gab nur 2 Portionierbehälter am Waschbecken und in der Dusche). Der Zimmerservice kam erst gegen 16 Uhr.
