The A-Train Hotel is a unique 3 star hotel with a train-theme. It is ideally located in front of the Central (Railway) Station, right in the beating heart of Amsterdam. Shopping areas, tourist attractions, pubs, restaurants, theaters, are all within walking distance. All 34 rooms are comfortably furnished and have modern bathrooms with a hair-drier and are equipped with radio, satellite TV with pay TV, safe, work desk, direct-dial telephone with wake-up system and FREE WIFI. The hotel has a lift, a luggage store room and 24 hours check in. An easy chair, coffee and tea making facilities, fridge and a great view off the Central Station are the extras in our 4 excellent 'First class rooms', also very suitable for business guests. For special occasions we have the 'Old Dutch Suite' with a small private garden/patio. Furthermore smoking and non-smoking rooms and 2 excellent family rooms. No two rooms are alike in our surprising train-themed hotel! All major public transport lines operate from the Central Station, only 15-20 minutes from Schiphol Airport, RAI and WTC. There is an (expensive) underground public parking opposite the A-Train Hotel. Cheap parking, from €10,- per 24 hours at 5 minutes walk from the hotel.. The A-Train Hotel is a cozy hotel, run by Jos and Erika Heijnsdijk and manager Ali Hassan and will be a comfortable place to stay during your tourist or business visit and will make you feel like "Home away from Home". We aim to please with an informal atmosphere and are looking forward to see you soon in our hotel.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

The location was excellent, right across from the Central Station close to all the highlights and places to see, all within walking distance, but we were given a Smoking Room with 2 tiny beds that smells like smoke, hallway smells like marijuana all the time.Tried yo adk for

If you are travelling to Amsterdam on the train consider staying at this hotel. It’s 5 mins walk from Centraal Station (Eurostar) It’s very reasonably priced indeed. Nothing modern about the hotel but everything you need. Private bathroom. Clean towels everyday. Breakfast

We stayed here for 3 nights. What a great location, opposite the main railway station and a couple of minutes walk from Dam Square and the Red Light District. We stayed in the Dutch Suite which was so quiet. All the staff were very friendly and buffet breakfast was very nice.

For the 2nd year running we stayed at this hotel. Staff are welcoming and very friendly. We stayed in room 206 this year which for me was very small size wise. The breakfast is continental based which is disappointing (for this English man).Its OK, nothing bad, nothing

No airco yet, powerful fans in all rooms though. We are planning to put airco's in all rooms in spring 2018.
