Stayed here for 9 nights over Christmas and new year 2013 / 2014.

Absolutely loved it !

My parents so flew in to stay in this hotel (we came from Dubai & they came from Scotland & we were meeting for Christmas). Their flights were delayed by a day due to the storms in Scotland, and the hotel changed their booking without any problems. We were over the moon ! (Most hotels are money grabbing & don't care, in my experience)

The breakfast was nice. It may not be what everybody wants, but it really worked well for us. Plenty of toast, cheeses, spread etc as well as some Dutch items and even some kosher items, that I'd never tried before so decided to give it a go !!

The staff were awesome. Always friendly and even keen on a joke here and there! (Makes all the difference).

The room was nice & we especially liked the shower - nice and hot and powerful !

My only tiny complaint, if I had to mention one, would be that the heating system really dried out the air in the room, I had slight nose bleeds due to the air dryness.


The hotel is on the metro line 5 and 51, both of which take about 15 minutes to get into Amsterdam Central. Cost €7 a day each for unlimited travel - which also got us back to the airport for our flight home, saving us about 50 euro !

I'd rate the hotel about a 8.5-9 / 10. Other hotels could learn a thing or two from this hotel.

This is our last night here tonight. Not happy at having to go home. Normally I stay at citizenM hotel but as we brought our son that was not feasible. Thought we would be going a little downmarket coming here but we were wrong. The hotel facilities are excellent the breakfast alone makes it worthwhile coming here.
Staff are absolutely first class, so friendly, knowledgeable and so helpful. We booked through Hotels.com who messed up our booking. Staff here resolved the issue not caused by the hotel and asked all in our party to accept a complimentary drink for the inconvenience. Now that is service.
I think even when we come here without son the next time we will give the citizenM a miss and make this hotel our new first choice in Amsterdam.

The hotel was clean and the room very nice. The shower was terrific! Great water pressure. The hotel is located close to the tram or train (a block away), making it easy to get around. We had a very early morning flight the next day and because we were leaving before the complimentary breakfast, they prepared an extensive "bag breakfast" for us to take to the airport. It had meat, cheese, and bagel and roll to make a sandwich. A hard boiled egg and apple were included, along with a chocolate croissant! And that was not to share...we were each given a bag. It was our first time in Amsterdam, and the staff provided us a map and directions about the tram. It was a wonderful experience, and we would recommend this hotel to anyone. We did not spend any amount of time in the area of the hotel, but there was a convenience store on the corner.

This Holiday Inn is conveniently located, especially if you have a car. There is a parking lot near the hotel (on a first come, first served basis. 25 euros/night, which isn't bad for Amsterdam), other parking spaces around the hotel (significantly more expensive) and free street parking from Friday night till Sunday morning. Nothing interesting around the hotel (looks like a residential area. You need to take the tram to the city center, which is less than 20 minutes away..The tram stop is right by the hotel. The room was nice, except for the bathroom, which wasn't as clean as it should have been. I would have complained about it had I not checked in really late, after a seven-hour drive. I'm sure that if I had, the staff would have fixed the problem, because they seem to form a good, professional team.

The staff was wonderul, the room were spacious and clean, continental breakfast with all kind of bread and fresh fruit and good location. Buy a public transport ticket at the front desk, tram 5 leaves next to the hotel and takes you down town amsterdam within 20 minutes!
Highly recommended!
