A small hotel, just in front of Central station. As the name suggests, the interior decoration of the lobby is made to simulate a train compartment. The rooms are very small, basic bathroom, just average breakfast & charged Wi-Fi. The only positives would be its location & somewhat friendly staff. The price is expensive for the standard of the hotel. My friends got a cheaper deal with better facilities in nearby hotels during the same time period.

Now our 5th visit to the A train hotel and another excellent stay.
Five minutes walk from Central station, five minutes walk to Dam square, clean and warm even on the coldest days, helpful and friendly staff. what's not to like?
Rooms can be a little on the small side but its important to remember its a traditional Dutch building so consider it to be more of a feature than a fault.
And if you are bothered about the pay per view cable TV you are spending far too much time in your room and not enjoying Amsterdam's many cultural (and not so cultural!!) delights!
See you next year A Train.

Pros:
1. Quirky is definitely the word to describe this place. Full of train themed items and decor. If your into all that stuff, you would be in heaven here.
2. Liked all the railway seats and things in the breakfast area. Breakfast itself was dutch, no fried or cooked food, all ham/cheese/cereal etc.
3. Staff were very friendly, turned up asking for a room and they were able to accommodate, speak English very well, enjoyed talking to the breakfast lady, All appear very proud of their hotel, good to see.
4. Room/bathroom was clean, beds were comfortable.
5. TV good, bathroom good.
6. WIFI throughout the hotel, good connection.
7. Close to the main train station/centre of Amsterdam, able to walk into all the main areas, whilst just not too close that it was noisy/busy.

Cons:
1. Originally got given a bigger room than we paid for, agreed to move to our normal room after one night. This was a twin bed room. Was very small. a few meters by a few meters. The bigger one was a lot nicer, much more spacious. This was bordering on claustrophobic.

Didn't really have any other issues, the hotel was fine.

Overall:
If your looking a nice B&B/Guesthouse type experience, it's not a bad place to go. Wouldn't expect anything too fancy, but it does the job for a room and bed to sleep in.
Personally wouldn't stay anything over a few days. Mostly for travelers/few couples, didn't see any families or children.

Room Tip: Ensure you get the bigger room if you are booking twin beds. The standard twin rooms are like a box.

Nobody mentioned the trains, (well the reviews I checked out). But it's got a definite railway theme.
From the old carriage seats in the small lobby, through to all the railwayana and train photos on and around the walls (including the bedrooms). It was lovely, because you stay in so many identical hotels, with the same old laminate finish, and glitzy, corporate style.
The bedroom was small, but easily big enough for two - but don't expect to languish there, sipping a drink and watching TV (it had one). Basically it's a bedroom. The beds however were a tad soft, for my liking, but I do like a firm bed. The bathroom was functional, with a walk in wetroom/shower, with a powerful and always hot shower. I'd have liked better illumination, - the single lamp, didn't provide enough light to easily shave.
Breakfast was basic buffet - nothing hot, just cereals, croissants, bread selection (there was a toaster), recently boiled eggs, Dutch cheese, processed ham, tomatoes, etc. You wouldn't leave hungry - I had cheese, ham and tomato sandwiches! Hot drinks were from a (good) machine, juices from a dispenser.
The staff were superb. Really helpful and friendly, always a genuine smile.
Overall a good base, if you want to be near Centraal Station and downtown Amsterdam. It's a little bit tired a dog eared in places, but I'd use it again.

Room Tip: I was at the back so I don't know, but rooms at the front of the hotel may be noisy, The hotel is on a very busy main road, that has traffic 24 hours a day.
