Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Switzy A Secret Location
Apart from the well-known positive aspects of this hotel (such as cleanliness, quality, and comfort), there is an additional plus, which is the location.
Location is for most of the people a matter of 'how far' a place is from the center and other attractions, but the question should be 'how long' it takes to get there. People might think the place is a bit far (on the map), but if you think how a 4-minute direct train will drop you in the heart of Amsterdam, together with the value of this hotel, there could never be a better bargain.
This place would be my definite place to stay again and again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rudie6957 great location and friendly staff
This is the seventh time since the opening I am staying at this location.
6 trains an hour from Schiphol airport to the hotel what is 100 m from the train station and the same amount of trains t the City center.
New and comfortable hotel.
Hard to reach with luggage since there are stairs between the hotel and the station access.
good breakfast and well organized!

The room was clean, spacious & comfortable, although I would have liked more drawer space. Would have liked more coffee, tea & milk left in room. Only 10 minutes away from Central Station. Staff were helpful and good breakfast. Would not hesitate to recommend hotel to other people.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dememe Nice location, confortable room and excellent service
Great location for visiting Amsterdam. Room was confortable and service of very high quality (parking accessible from 9h at arriving day till 17h at leaving day). Check-n was also possible earlier what was very appreciated. Reception girl made great effort to speak some words in French and this is very nice from her. Room in front of the station are a little bit noisy but no so much. The breakfest was also of very good quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by exmariner Fantastic Staff and Hotel
A great hotel which gives easy access to Amsterdam Central and surrounding countryside, being located next to a major train station with easy links to Metro/Tram/Bus and main line trains. No noise from the station. The hotel staff were excellent in their approach to customers, continental breakfast was substantial. Plus a pleasant bar area to chill after returning from a hectic day in Amsterdam.
Ideal for both Leisure and Business a very comfortable long weekend stay.
Outside facilities shops café are located in the main line station area and are what they are and offer a basic choice

I am a regular traveller. I should mentioned that This particular hotel offerred one of the best breaksfast ever bravo!!!
Staffs are polite, friendly and helpful. They are knowlegeable and able to provide answers when needed. Although the hotel is not located in the city centre but the local transportation for buses, train and metro which are just accross the hotel. There are very handy to travel around. Surroundings are peaceful and quiet too.
Will definately stay in this hotel when I have my next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emma59000 Nice and cosy place
I really appreciated the cleanliness, calm and confortable room; nice bathroom with shower. Really good breakfast with fresh orange juice, nice buffet in a cosy place. The Sloterdjik station is far from 5mn by foot to catch the train to go to Amsterdam City (Central Station).
Easy to let our car in the private parking.
I recommend this hotel, value for money and certainly return here for a nice WE in Amsterdam !
Enjoy your stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PhilippeB Modern, clean and large rooms. Good connection to Amsterdam Central station.
Very modern and clean rooms. Nice breakfast area but we were a bit disappointed by the lack of warm offerings (e.g. no eggs & bacon, pancakes). A 10 minute train ride away from Amsterdam Central station. Highly recommended if you're looking for a good night sleep and good travel connections.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VegasTraveller Great property
We stayed in this property for a layover. The hotel is definitely by the station which makes this a convenient place to stay. The check in staff was awesome (kudos to Jill) and gave us maps of the city and recommendations of where to go. They spoke english which helped immensely. The breakfast choices were similar to other Holiday Inn Express but with a Dutch personality. We only stayed a day but would come back in this property again if our ways brings up back to Amsterdam.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DSTHT Great Room, Excellent Location
We were not sure about taking a hotel so far from the city center but this hotel's location was great! Right beside the train station, bus and tram station - only minutes from the airport and the city center. We did walk into the center too.
The hotel itself is very clean and modern. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed great night's sleep, good breakfasts and good TV and wi-fi connection.
We would definitely return!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mona63 Very nice stay in an excellent hotel
We were a group of 13 people and spent 2 nights in this hotel. The hotel staff at the reception was very friendly. The rooms and bathrooms were large enough and very clean. As there is a direct train to Amsterdam station and several buses and a tram it is easy to get quickly to Amsterdam central station.
The only disadvantage is the breakfast room, it is very nice and the staff is friendly but if there is rush hour you have to queue in front of the buffet and this takes time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hendrikus Good hotel - reception needs adrenaline boost.
Good hotel. Train to the airport less than ten train minutes with a five minute walk to the station Sloterdijk. All is well in this hotel, but the staff at reception needs to speed up a little. I have been in this hotel in the past, why ask for my ID? The check-in process takes just a little too long. Everything else good as always.

Clean room, very modern bathroom.
Delicious breakfast with a lot of choice.
Excellent location next to the trainstation, very easy to reach Amsterdam city centre in only 5 minutes by train.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RC888 BED TOO SOFT
I stayed at this property on 21-OCT 2013 -24-OCT 2013
All in all a great stay...the Staff at the Front Desk were just great and always had a smile...The only issues I had was that the bed was too soft for my comfort, and when the wind blows it whistles in the room....I look forward to stay at his property in the future...
BTW I wish the room had a FRIDGE...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by molliedog second to none for friendliness
Excellent position in Amsterdam to find. Trains, trams and buses right outside the door.
Room and comfort question only got an average because there is only a desktop and shelf (other than hangers for coats, trousers and skirts) for any other clothing.
A small set of drawers would be ideal.
But we will be back for another visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Museumsandart A nice stay
very convenient location for airport ,central Amsterdam ( inexpensive very fast easy train ride ) as well as to Museum Plein by tram .
I was impressed shower rod in my room partly disengaged and cleaning staff noticed and got it fixed without me having to complain.
Only disadvantages of hotel is absence of any good restaurant close by and stairs to and from station to front entrance .tricky if heavy bags or old
Staff great but would have appreciated a better map as navigating bus tram and train routes is critical for any tourist in Amsterdam .
will stay there again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Witham Very Clean with very very helpful staff
The Hotel was extremely clean especially the room and the bathroom. The furnishings were very modern and up to date, the shower looked brand new.
The hotel staff we encountered during our 2 day stay were very, very helpful and managed to do us a favour that just finished our stay on a good note.
We were here in Amsterdam to run the Marathon and two things during our stay at the hotel made our life's easier with regard to the Marathon. Firstly we arrived early but were able to check into our room immediately. Secondly we had to check out before the Marathon leaving our bags with reception. On our return from the Marathon, we needed somewhere to shower before changing for our flight home. The Hotel staff were able to let us use a room for 1/2 an hour to get a shower which was fantastic and made our journey home that much more comfortable.
The only downside hence the Cons - Amenities was not having a restaurant in the hotel available in the evening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worldtraveller64 AMS September 2013
This is one of the better Holiday Inn Express Hotels in Europe. The room was very quiet and the facility was well maintained. Easy to access the train to Amsterdam Central Station. I was told the trains were about every 10 minutes and I think that was true. Very easy to attend a meeting in the city then take the train back to the hotel.
As to the hotel and breakfast, well it is a bit of a zoo. I would recommend doing it before 9 AM on the weekend otherwise you are contending with MANY people. The various selections of food were good and it seemed fresh.
The downside to the hotel is that there is no restaurant in the hotel nor is the only one outside the hotel open after about 7 PM. The best place to get dinner is back to AMS via the train.
Otherwise, I enjoyed the hotel very much and I will use it again.

Easily accessible from Schiphol - the facility was great and the staff very hospitable. My only improvement suggestion is for scrambled eggs or omelets for breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DC007 Convenient and practical
Beats Amsterdam prices hands down and the location is convenient. Rooms are clean and breakfast is also really nice. The shampoo/bodywash is terrible however so I would recommend that you bring your own. Other than that, a great place to stay.
