“Chuggin' Along”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2005

The rooms are small, but that is the norm for Europe. That said - location, location, location ! Very near the Central station, the main shopping artery, the canal boat tour offices and the grown up fun side of Amsterdam, this little gem is a treasure. Breakfast is included. Nothing fancy, but substantial and you can eat your fill. The management and staff are terrific and eager to pass on hints, helps and every courtesy possible. Loved the train decor. All in all, it is a terrific place to hang ones' luggage ( or backpack ) and start exploring Amsterdam. Oh, there is internet access - either using their pc or your own.

We saw a very good review of the A Train hotel on Tripadvisor and we endorse it. This is a great place to stay in Amsterdam. Very well positioned opposite Central Station. The rates are very reasonable for a 3*** hotel with all the facilities in the room. The room was very small but comfortable, clean and well maintained with ensuite. The hotel has a railway theme and this is well presented in the very pleasant breakast room. The hotel rates include a good breakfast and there is the bonus of an elevator. The staff are very friendly and helpful

Lovely hotel, staff helpful and it was very clean. Perfect position just across the road from Central Station, in the middle of everything but still quiet. Would definately use again.

Excellent stay, friendly staff, comfortable room, (had the chance to upgrade to a bigger room on the front) which overlooked central station, good location, includes breakfast in the price, could not have asked for a better stay.

The good things about the hotel. Very friendly and helpful front desk. The was a small problem in our room and management took care of it very quickly. The location is excelent just accross the train station and walking distance to center of city. Rooms: The rooms were very clean, however, even for european standards they were extremly small. When I say small I mean very small. The beds were confortable, but rather low and small.
