MEININGER Hotel Amsterdam City West

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 November 2013

I stayed in this hotel on a weekend away with a few of my friends for 2 nights. We had a roo. For 4 which included a double bed and bunk bed. The room was very clean and surprisingly modern. I say surprisingly because we paid such a good price(only £20 a night). The beds were comfy and ideal for what we needed. The hotel itself has all what you want for a weekend away. There's a bar and a kitchen and a very handy vending machine to help with those ever impending munchies.

The location is about as good as it can get if your not in the centre. It's about 2 minutes away from sloterdyke (don't think that's how you spell it) which is only a 5 minute ride to Amsterdam Central. The airport is really easy to get to as well.
Definitely somewhere I would recommend to anyone going to Amsterdam and I would no doubt stay there again

The hotel was very nice room was lovely and the breakfast was plentiful and good. As other reviews say it is out of the city but it's only one stop away which never bothered us at all. The rail network is excellent safe, frequent and easy so no hassle at all.

The hotel is conveniently located just outside of the city centre. It is literally right next to Sloterdijk station (which is only about 2 stops from the airport) and it has a bus stop just outside with the number 48 bus taking you to the city centre in about 10 minutes. The hotel has a bit of a hostel feel about it but is very much a hotel. It was very very clean with comfy pillows and a power shower. We had a room of 4 which was 2 single beds and a bunk bed at the front of the hotel. It wasn't very nicely decorated and you can hear a lot of noice but it was fine and comfy. The staff were all very helpful and nice. The breakfast you have to pay for and is not very interesting, i would reccomend skipping it and just eating in the city. There's wifi all over the hotel along with bike hire.

The room I chose was anything but small. The breakfast was very good. You know what made this hotel even more "recommended" to me? Its position. Yes, this hotel is located near the Sloterdijk station, and that was really facilitating every time I came back from Amsterdam center. Definitevely recommended.

I booked in after reading a review on a peer hotel booking website. Great location near to the Sloterdijk station. Modern, clean well appointed hotel. Booked a single room which was tiny but exactly what I needed. My new hotel of choice in Amsterdam.

I booked a single room for 2 nights. The room was very small as well as its single bed.

Pros: 1) Sloterdijk Station with Sprinter train and metro, tram and bus stops are just next door. 2) There are Starbucks, kiosks and few cafes in the station itself but will close by 8pm. 3) Free tours and information are available. 4) Free wifi, and there are guest kitchen and hotel bar

Cons: 1) For those who are carrying huge luggage arriving at Sloterdijk station , have to use the lift at the Piarcoplein and go round from the back of the MEININGER building. The direction given to use Orlyplein exit at Sloterdijk Station has no lift or elevator, only stairs! 2) Room and its en-suite bathroom are very small. 3) Travel to Amsterdam Centraal will only take 5 minutes if we buy Sprinter train ticket. If we use GVB card, we can only take metro, tram or bus to Centraal, it will take at least 35-40 minutes.
