We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in late december.
It was better than it looked from the outside!

When we arrived at the hotel it looks a bit like a hostel with lots of young travellers staying there. The outside looks ok, but made me feel wary about what we would we get inside.

I was quiet surprised, the rooms were large clean and the beds were big! The rooms was a bit sparse, but I wasn't there for the room! The bathroom was a bit small but the shower was big and had a huge shower head and plently hot water!

Breakfast was ok, it was continental with enough choice to keep even the most fussy person happy.

The staff were always helpful and willin to be of service.

We did have a few issues with the safe not locking and then not unlockin the next day but this was soon sorted out.

The hotel is not in the centre of Amsterdam and you will need to take a short bus or tram trip to the centre. Which can be a bit of pain if its cold and yu just want to get to bed after a long day walking around.

This hotel is perfect for those looking to keep their budget down but still stay somewhere nice and clean.

This was an OK hotel, we are a family of 4, the hotel room was clean and reasonably large, but it was bare - a table with some chairs would have been great. The bathroom was reasonable. The hotel was quite a distance out of the city and you had to catch a bus to get in and out. If you are travelling with your family, the location of the hotel is an advantage. After you have been walking around the city all day smelling the hash, it is very pleasent to go somewhere where the air is fresh.
Amsterdam is the sort of city you visit once and never visit again, it has very little to offer - you may think that all the best artists came from there and you can visit galleries and see this great art, unfortunately none of it is there. Hotel was OK, city was very disappointing.

I was moved to this hotel from Inner Hotel after some kind of "mistake" in the reservation. I was skeptical at first because Inner hotel was 2 star hotel and Blue square is 3 star hotel but they didn't charge me anything extra.
The hotel is indeed very nice, big rooms with nice furniture, lights and great shower. You can see that everything in the hotel is rather new and the breakfast served from 7-10.30 was excellent..
The staff was very helpful and they could answer all my questions regarding the city and transportation without hesitation.
I would definitely stay again in this hotel if I come to Amsterdam again.
