“Good place in expensive City”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

2nights in August 2010

Amsterdam is an expensive city. This hotel was prebooked months in advance and it was around 90Euro a night.
Location – good 15min walk from Central train station along the river. 5-10min walk to the central square and shopping region. Metro/tram stops nearby, but everything is accessible by a short 10-15min walk. Huge shower cubicle. Breakfast not included, supermarket within 5 minutes, restaurants 5-10mins to have a meal.
No minibar or tea/coffee facilities.
Our room was next to the elevator - but surprisingly quiet and no problems.

A good hotel for touristy Amsterdam. A little further to walk but does the job.

We stayed at Ibis Stopera for 2 nights, arriving straight from Melbourne. We took the train from the airport (about 15-20mins) which costs 3.70 Euro, and then walked to Ibis, which took about 15mins. Very easy. Check in went well, we were able to check in at 12pm. Our room was modern, clean, had a window what opened with view over canal (this is where the canal cruises travel through). It was a good location as it is quiet and away from the seedy central part. There is also a bike hire place a few doors down, and for about 7 euros you can cycle around for the day, which is a great way to see the sights efficiently. We rode all through the canals, red light area, Dam square, Vondel park, Anne Frank House + a cafe lunch stop over, all in 2 hrs.

The breakfast is good, it is a buffet style with cereal (rice bubbles, muesli & cornflakes), yoghurt, baguettes, cold meats, cheese (brie, gouda etc), fruit salad, croissants, and toast. Tea, coffee, & juice. I think it is excellent value for money and will definitely stay here again and I am recommending it to my work colleagues. I paid a lot more to stay at NH Barbizon Palace the following weekend, which I was very disappointed with (see my review on this).

Friends booked this as part of a car ferry trip from Newcastle, England. One night at the Ibis and a canal cruise were part of the package. We were much happier with the hotel than the canal cruise. I don't know what we paid for the room since it was part of the package but it was clean and comfortable and not badly located.

Hi
Good points- close to central station. about a 15 minute walk. We were charged 25 Euros in a taxi which we now know was a clear rip off.
Hotel is only a 10 minute walk to Dam Square and also the Red Light district.
Reception/ Bar staff were friendly

Bad points- in a run down block, no fridge or tea/coffee facilities.
Never tried any meals as were expensive
Room was clean but small & basic, no seats for instance.


Amsterdam- nice city to walk around if its Sunny, which it was for us. Enjoyed Anne Frank House & Heineken experience.

Can be expensive for drinks, overall enjoyed our 3 day break

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend. Very good value for money. Very close to the city center, train station etc. We walked with our suitcases from the train station to the hotel in about 15 min. The train ticket from Schiphol airport to the main train station costs 3.70 euros one way - very cheap. We didn't try the breakfast at the hotel. There was a big supermarket very close by. The room was very nice and clean and looked exactly like on the pictures shown on the Ibis website. The staff was very nice and polite - always. We stored our luggage at the hotel after check-out because our flight departed in the evening. There's a metro station very close to the hotel but we neither used public transportation nor taxis as we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. Even at night it was no problem walking back to the hotel. Very nice hotel!

Choose after flight delay, okay hotel, would have been better to go to Ibis downtown since we saw one went we took the train downtown to walk around. Very very small room- did not look the photo we saw at the airport, guess it shrunk while we were on the airporter. Twin beds right beside each other- no space in between.
