“Close to RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

Stayed at this hotel for BBWF 2012 in October. Hotel is very nice, and for everyone working at the fairground the best possible location (300m walking distance), with tram station almost in front of the door (50 m). I loved great breakfasts.

Only downsize is the ridiculous price of the internet connection! Also, after paying 22 eur per day (what I pay for month of my fiber service at home), I would expect it to at least work fast. But upload speed was below 100KB/s (and this is on wired connection in the room). Surprisingly wifi worked better - up to 500 KB/s uplink, and downstream above 1MB...

Rooms are average - old... with stupid LCD TVs that can be seen only if you stand in front of them (if you watch it from bed, almost no colors are seen due to cheap model with limited view angle of screen).

Personnel is friendly and professional.

We stayed with our family (2 grown ups + 2 children) in the Holiday Inn Amsterdam. Location ok / friendly people / good food (breakfast / dinner).
When we arrived at our room we were however struck by a terrible stench. Possibly someone had vomitted in the room. Windows were open (and couldn't be closed - we had to ask someone from housekeeping to close them as it became to cold) and even then there was this nasty smell. Perhaps bad luck?
There were 2 beds (one for the children and one for the grown ups). These were a bit to small however.

The Holiday Inn is at the end of the Amsterdam RAI line. Access the train at the main central train station. Once at the hotel, take the #4 tram into the city for easy access. Basic Holiday Inn hotel in excellent condition, with nice restaurant and bar. Andjelina at the front desk was very helpful, as were all of the staff. Get a 24 hour train pass from the concierge. Enjoy good rates while having access to all that Amsterdam has to offer.

Good location if you're in town for a show at the RAI Center. Only a 5 minute walk, close to train from the schipol, close to tram # 4 to downtown. Small rooms, but adequate. No amenities in the bathroom, housekeeping was hit or miss.

I stayed there for Hortifair three times and during each of the three stays I had to stop at the front desk every day to remove breakfast charges and mini bar charges. I did not eat breakfast there but my colleagues did, when I went in to sit with them, I was automatically charged for breakfast. Every time I put water in the refrigerator or took it out, it registered as a mini bar charge.

One morning I did ask if I could just have coffee. The breakfast staff said sure, $21.00 Euros. But when I had a coffee in the bar after breakfast was over, the coffee was $3.00 Euros.

Beware, check your bill there. Upgrade because you're a card holder, forget about it.

Executive room was small but well laid out, good internet connections, not free but charge does cover 2 devices. Ample choice in continental breakfast and no waiting even at "busy" times. Front desk staff were always very pleasant and helpful. The hotel is 5 minutes walk to the RAI train station, which takes 10 minutes to Schiphol: very convenient. Dinner in the hotel was OK, no more, but at least not overpriced. I was at the Novotel across the street for a meeting, internet connection there was much more erratic, and my colleague who stayed there confirmed that was an issue. Its a 10 minute walk to the RAI center, wide choice of restaurants on the block immediately past the RAI. Indonesian looked excellent but was full when we stopped by, we went to Pakistan curry house which was still very good.

The hotel is convenient for the city and rail station. the rooms ( we were on the 12th floor) were comfortable with usual facilities. Hotel maintenace and house keeping very good and quick ( problem with telephone and request for ironing board). Meals in the bar and the restaurant good quality. The reception staff, indeed all the staff, were friendly and helpful.
It was let down by the parking facilities and the cost of guest parking, the huge hike in prices for drinks ( there were no local cafes or pubs in the area which meant we and our friends , andother guests, had no other real choice) and the chaos at breakfast ( when hotel is full they should open a second breakfast room ),
We enjoyed our stay apart from the
