At first I thought this was a horrible mistake from looking at the groups of teenagers at the reception but I was pleasantly surprised. We traveled with our teenage kids and got a room for four. It was small but very well planed, bunker beds for our 15 and 20 year old and a full size for us. The beds were amazing, so comfy we didn't mind the occasional giggles from the kids upstairs But what really put a smile on our faces was the bathroom, big, modern, clean, we loved it! The train/ trolley/ metro station is literally 3 minutes away so you can get to Amsterdam in 5 minutes, or anywhere else for that matter. It was such a breeze to get anywhere that we ventured out to other towns during our 5 day stay. No restaurants nearby but Amsterdam is so close it is not a problem.

I visited Amsterdam on my way home from a business trip and found it difficult to find a reasonably priced hotel. The Meininger was very well priced compared with other hotels. The hotel was very clean and decorated in a modern style. The room I had while very clean was very very small; ~ 6 feet by 20 feet. However, the room did have everything you would need and really how much time do you spend in the room during vacation.

The location of this hotel is very convenient just steps away from a major train station. It is just a few stops to central Amsterdam and a few stops direct to the airport. You do pay a bit for transportation but this is offset by the cost of the room.

A few watch out for this hotel.
1. This hotel very popular with school groups. The lobby was always a bit loud and busy but I did not find the guest floor to be loud.
2. There is not much activity around the hotel. There are a few places to eat in the train station (Starbucks, quick shop) but outside of that you need to take transportation into town.

Overall, a good reasonably place to stay in Amsterdam.

Budget hotel with additional hostel facilities such as dormitory rooms and laundry which I thought was brilliant. Rooms were large and modern as website pictures depict. Hotel was spotless. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Right next door to amsterdam west station. Very easy to commute to town centre as it is the next stop. Get a good nights sleep here. No traffic. I didn't stay for breakfast. Reception was manned 24hrs which is excellent.

Room Tip: I had a room overlooking the front of the hotel which I found quiet. The trains are out the back of...

I booked this hotel as part of a package through Chillisauce and was pleasantly surprised. It was very clean and tidy, staff were extremely friendly and helpful and it was only a short taxi or train ride to Dam Square. Perfect for what we needed it for.

My experience with Meininger Hotels have always been great. This hotel was very clean, very friendly and in a great location. When you leave the West Station, you take a right, and you cannot miss the big red M. This is good for people who want to actually sleep whilst in Amsterdam. You can get to the city center by train- 4 minutes time. Its perfect time. Not too far, but not too close.
The only warning: they say they have laundry facilties, but Its just one washer and one dryer- the dryer does not work. And for the washer, you have to pull out your clothing as soon as the timer goes off, otherwise it gets stuck in the washer. so be cautious!

Room Tip: Dorms are clean and manageable, for those that are a little worried about the dorm lifestyle- I say...
