We stayed here for 4 nights and did not encounter any problems. It is in a good location and getting to the airport was only 2 stops. Despite being so close to the train station we did not have any problems sleeping. It is only one stop from Amsterdam Central and it took only 6 minutes to get there. The area is very quiet at night and there is one restaurant (cafe hermes) which is a minute walk from the hotel. The location is very convenient to taking the train to Delft, the Hague, Alkamaar, Haarlem and Brussels.
To get to the hotel, look for the bus and tram exit. As soon as you are outside, turn right and it will lead you to the Holiday inn level -2 entrance. Ring the buzzer if you are not a guest yet and someone will buzz you in. We had a difficult time finding the entrance so hope the instructions I have given are clear for future guests.
Internet connection was great. Breakfast consists of hot and cold items. However, unlike
North America Holiday inn expresses there was no cinnamon rolls or cookies in the evening. My only gripe is the bed, whenever you roll over towards the centre it sort of caves in.
I would definitely recommend this establishment to friends as it is much cheaper staying here than in the centre of town.
