We had a really great stay, we want to thank the staff and the manageress on duty for all of their help, their knowledge and their extreme friendliness. Excellent place to stay for access to Amsterdam Central by train, bus or trolley. Easy access from the airport by rental car or by train. Recommend anyone stay here, you won't be disappointed.

...despite being outside the main city. Well connected with Tram, bus and Train services and all are just when you come out of the hotel gate!!

We reached Amsterdam during a peak holiday season in June'14 and had difficulty in finding accommodation in the city. Eventually when we reached this place we realized that apart from the standard room rent for such property we will not be wasting out time and money in commuting from the hotel to city to visit places. If you have a 24 hour or 48 hour city card (you should get one) the transportation can be done from just outside this hotel!

It is a self service kind of hotel keeping the population of tourist in mind and which is good.

Note: Visit Amsterdam keeping at least one-week stay in mind. We were only able to cover 15-20% in 2 days, do the maths! :)

Room Tip: Take the highest room for a better view

Rude , horrible staff.
Totally unconcerned.
House keeping a disaster.
On writing to them , they act as if we are beggars and try to compensate a trip turned into disaster, by adding a few bonus points.
They need to " CLOSE DOWN"

We have stayed here for 3 days in this excellent located Hotel.
First it was quite difficult to find the entrance of the hotel and we had to carry al our luggage down stairs. But fortunately we were welcomed by the friendly and professional receptionist supervisor Bakenam with a great smile. She assisted us with finding our way in Amsterdam city and gave us a lot of interesting information.
The amenities were pretty good although we expected more about the room.
The breakfast was good a lot of choice.

Thanks again for the great time we had in Amsterdam and we want to thank Bakenam especially for the great service.

I asked the internet for a town centre hotel in Amsterdam, so at first I was very disappointed to discover we were actually out of town on a Business Development. However we could not have chosen better for our long weekend in Amsterdam. It was only a 10 minute train ride from Schipol Airport to Sloterdijk where the hotel was located. When we left the railway station we were going to look for a taxi but were pleasantly surprised to discover the hotel was next door to the station! Only a few minutes walk away. The location turned out to be perfect as the hotel was lovely and quiet and yet had excellent transport links. There was always a train, bus or tram available from outside the Hotel door and we never once waited to go anywhere. It was only a 10 minute journey in to the city centre with your ticket lasting and hour if you wanted to change tram or bus during this period and not have to pay any more. The Hotel itself was excellent with the high quality standards you expect from a Holiday Inn and we had a wonderful stay and were quite sad to leave. As it was a Holiday Inn Express there was no Restaurant so we always ate in Amsterdam before returning. No hardship as we always found plenty to do each day to keep us in the city centre. However the hotel did have a machine selling hot noodles and also lots of other reasonably priced snacks should you suddenly get the munchies. There was also a pleasant small bar to sit in if you did not want to stay in your room. Breakfast in the morning was continental with plenty of options available to satisfy the biggest appetite. (Incidentally there is a lovely restaurant near the hotel but it is only open weekdays for the workers. We arrived Friday night and ate there and enjoyed an excellent meal.) All in all an excellent stay. Top class standards and lovely friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this Hotel to anyone staying in Amsterdam.

I am a Platinum IHG member, and I traditionally like the Holiday Inn Express chain of hotels since the internet and breakfast make travel easier. This hotel is an above average property except for 1 feature - the rooms have no air conditioning. If the window was kept ajar, the heat level improved, but the noise level was unacceptable. Construction is occurring right outside of the hotel, and the extremely noisy construction started between 6-6:30am. If the window was closed to avoid the noise, the temperature in the room became very uncomfortable.

POSITIVES:
1. LOCATION: The location of the hotel is great even though it is not in the center of the city. The hotel is 2 stops away from the airport (about 7-10 minute duration), and trains leave to and from the airport every few minutes. It is only 1 stop on the train from the Central station, and the system is very easy to navigate. Of note for the Americans, a credit card with a chip is needed to purchase train tickets.

2. CLEANLINESS: A very clean hotel.

3. HOTEL STAFF: The hotel staff is outstanding even though they are young. They are enthusiastic, and they genuinely try to help. I come to the Netherlands several times per year, and the staff was better here than at higher priced hotels.

NEGATIVES:
1. LACK OF AIR CONDITIONING: This factor would keep me from staying here again during the summer.

2. BATHROOM AMENITIES: Below average with combined soap and shampoo from a dispenser. After sweating all night in the room due to the heat, a bar of soap would have been nice. Bring your own soap and shampoo.

3. LOCAL AREA: While the location is great for going to the airport and the city center, there are few non-fast food restaurants in the area, and it is difficult to find a location within walking distance for a business meeting. The front desk will help guests order food from local restaurants which can be delivered to the hotel.

SUMMARY: I would stay here again after the construction is complete. Until the construction is complete, you may want to face the railroad station as it was quieter than the construction.
