Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 September 2013

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, Amsterdam in May for 4 nights. We were interested in visiting the different museums and places of interest and the hotel's location was very convenient. Amsterdam has excellent public transportation and it helped us that the hotel was a few minutes walk from the tram stop - within 15 - 30 minutes you can be at any of the tourist spots. At around 100 Euros a night (breakfast included) it was an excellent "value for money" option (Amsterdam is an expensive city with respect to hotel tariffs). The reception staff were extremely helpful with directions / information. The breakfast had a decent spread and we had no reasons to complain.

If we were to visit Amsterdam again we will certainly stay here.

This was our 3rd year to Amsterdam but our 1st time at this hotel staying 3 nights and we were not disappointed . On arrival of the hotel it was so easy to find off the metro which was approximately a 2 minute walk . The outside of the hotel was impressive and was located in a quiet area just outside the city , surrounded by a little town which was lovely , with a fantastic supermarket . The check in process was excellent the staff were very friendly . The room was were very clean and fresh and with plenty of room . The bathroom was a decent size with a fantastic walk in shower that was immaculate . The beds were 2 singles joined together and were massive , very comfortable and a choice of pillows were available , there was also a selection of teas available . The breakfast on the morning was lovely with a wide range of cereals , fresh juice , hams and cheeses , toast , mini muffins as well as little jams etc for your toast and also tea and coffee .
In the hallway there was also free access to the internet with 2 computers , you could also get free wifi on your phone .
The transport to the city was fab , for people who like exploring it was wonderful . We had a choice of the tram or the metro . The metro we had to change at sparlweg which was not a problem . We used the tram and took about 20 minutes to get to the city but it was amazing to see different sights and places we had not explored . If your travelling into the city it always advisable to purchase a 3 day travel card ( if your staying 3 days , but can always purchase 2 day , 4 day etc etc ) this means you have unlimited travel which is fantastic on the trams or metro . We also visited Amstelveen which was the opposite direction from the city but used the same tram and only took 10 minutes from the hotel . The tram and metro services run every 5 minutes so very frequent . I would recommend this hotel to anyone and to those who like to explore . We will definatly be staying here again as we loved it .

The staff in the hotel were great, the rooms were extra clean and also the hotel facilities. Free WiFi !!!! And computers in the lobby.
Great running park near the hotel and quiet environment to take a walk.
Fare breakfast and supermarket right across the corner.
Transportation to city center takes 30 minutes with a Tram and Metro that located 100 meters from the hotel. The way to the airport is super fast and takes 40 minutes in public transportation.
Great experience.

Spent 3 nights in August . Hotel is in quite area very near tram and subway platform .Good breakfast, clean rooms and friendly helpfull staff.We did have a problem with the air conditioning in our room and there was a monetary issue regarding a 4th night we had booked but had to cancel ; but to the credit of Manager Linda De Jong these issues were resolved to our satisfaction and we would definitely stay at this hotel again. WE enjoyed our stay and recomend this hotel very highly.

We used our IHG reward points to book this hotel in Amsterdam. Please disregard the Google maps when checking how close this hotel is to the metro/tram lines. This one is extremely close. I would say less than 100 meters. Metro 51 and Tram #5 takes to you Amsterdam central in 10-15 minutes. The hotel staff was kind enough to allow us to check-in at 8AM when we arrived directly from the airport. They also allowed us to eat from the free breakfast buffet. The room was clean and cozy. I liked the shower area. Very relaxing after an all-day trip to Amsterdam attractions. The buffet breakfast is worth it. It's a European style breakfast with choices of croissants, yougurts, boiled eggs and the regular items. My 5 yr old kid was happy to eat there. The room had good sound proofing to allow us some good sleep. There is a big supermarket 'Jumbo' right in front of the Metro station where you get all fruits and vegetables and drinks. There is a small selection of Deli sandwiches as well. There are some eateries near the hotel as well, but we did not try them. To reach the hotel from the airport, take tickets to Zuid and take the inter-city train going to Amsterdam central. From Zuid, take Metro 51 which is at the same station (but different platform) or come out of the station and take tram 51. I will recommend this hotel to others and stay here for my next visit to AMS.

My initial reason for choosing this hotel was for its convenience to the RAI Conference Center--which indeed it turned out to be. I actually stayed at the hotel for an entire week. What I came to realize after a few days was how much I appreciated this choice. I have stayed at more central hotels in the past, but being in this location gave me a view of Amsterdam I found very valuable--among real people, largely away from touristy areas. I walked to a nearby park, or just in the neighborhood, and felt a peace that's just about impossible to have in the city's more central area. But with both the tram and the metro stop literally a block away, getting into town was really easy. And the hotel is near a late-night bus stop as well, so even if you want to stay in the center until the wee hours of the night, it's very easy getting back to the hotel by bus (but be sure to pay attention to the late-night bus schedule).

The staff couldn't have been friendlier. This became clear from the moment of my arrival: I had taken an overnight flight to Amsterdam, and arrived at the hotel around 9 am. I was immediately invited to join in the breakfast buffet if I wished, and then to get settled a bit later. They were even able to get me into my room hours before the official time.

The room was comfortable--granted that it was on the small side. Everything was squeaky clean. Nights were quiet, sleeping easy.

Strongly recommend.

The hotel is located in a very quite area with some stores around... we had a great rest away from the city center. It would be good if we could have an alternative transportation nearby since the train did not operate and it was saturday so we have to wait quite long for the tram in the morning to reach the city center.
The room was great and clean.... excellent pillows. The bathroom was great and clean. The breakfast was great, we love it!
