A-Train Hotel
Ranked #119 of 372 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 27 August 2011

We stayed at the Atrain for 3 nights,the hotel is very clean and looks just like the photos on the website.We had a twin smoking room at the front facing Central Station,the beds are very comfy and can be pushed together,if you want a quieter room ask for a room at the back of the hotel. The traffic noise might be a problem for some but not us. The bathroom was large, for Amsterdam, and clean with the towels changed daily. The breakfast was plentiful and you could eat as much as you like ( the fruit toast was our favourite) with as much coffee as you could drink. The staff always had a smile and were only too happy to answer any questions that were asked. Although we're not into the railways this is one train we cant wait to catch again!!

Room Tip: A big bonus is the modern lift which alot of hotels in Amsterdam DONT have!!!

This hotel was great. Located very near the train station, hop on hop off canal bus stop and walking distance to the red light district and other attractions. The staff was very friendly and the room was perfect for two adults and two teens.

Room Tip: The room we had was 2 twin and a double bed. Perfect for 2 adults and boy and girl teens.

This is a great 3-star hotel in a perfect location. It's just across the station. It's a regular 3star hotel but I think the best thing about it are the very friendly staff. Very good breakfast too!

I reserved this hotel trough the internet, it's wonderful located just in front of Central Station, price was similar to other hotel in the same area.
The hotel is very cozy, clean and well decorated, staff was very friendly and helpful, but our room was terrible! It was almost in the under flool, the only window was badly located and we could not see nothing trough it. The room was not only bad, it was expensive, very expensive, almost 200 euros per night! If it was sheaper, ok, no problem, but it doesn't value the price! I hardly recommend the hotel to charge less for that room! The room was very badly lightened (not enough lamps), and it increases the sensation of sub soil. The good thing we have there was the floor of the bathroom, it has a very nice heating system. Amsterdam is a very nice city, good museums, but it's a place to go once in your life and do not come back! At least for me, marijuana and prostitutes are also very common in Brazil...

Very convenient to train station for quick in and out trip. Price was a good value. Staff very friendly and accomodating.
Street noise was a bit loud. Not sure I would stay there with the family.

To put it simply, I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I went back to Amsterdam.

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Everything was as advertised and mentioned on their website. The room was spacious and clean (we had booked a 3 bed room). It was priced for economy and breakfast was included. Our choice of breakfast was limited - but that's because we were vegetarian. There was a free internet kiosk provided free of charge and unlimited drinks from the vending m/c (this may be a limited period offer because the hotel is being painted from the outside and the owners wanted to compensate for any inconvenience caused - not that it was causing any - we were out the whole day and came back late at night)
Earlier reviews had told us that they ask for the whole amount to be paid in advance - so that wasn't a shock. The hotel was well worth it so no complaints. Located very close to the train station, bus station, tram station and the red-light district; this meant we saved a lot of time and money on travel

Room Tip: their website gives you the best rates
