“A good stay”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

The hotel is very conveniently located near Schiphol airport and Central Station.The transport system is excellent. Trains from the airport to Bijlmer Arena station (where the hotel is) departs every 15 minutes, the journey is short and the hotel is located right next to the station. Thereafter the best way to travel to the centre of the city is by Metro, line 54 takes commuters to Central Station in about 15 minutes. The Metro is very convenient, easy to use, not too expensive and safe. Having a station right next to the hotel means that day trips for example to Rotterdam are also possible without any stress. Next to the hotel are found restaurants, bars, shops and a cinema. Of course anyone attending an event to the Arena or Music Hall will find the hotel perfectly located. The fact that the hotel was not in the city centre was not a problem due to the excellent transport available. The hotel 's staff were helpful, nice and relaxed (Like most Dutch, I found) , the family room was spacious, bathroom door which strangely was also the cupboard door did not shut properly but it was not too much of a problem. The hotel was quiet with absolutely no noise from the station. Breakfast was good but it does get very busy and can be a problem to find a table accommodating a family.The area felt safe. Taking everything into consideration including the price i would use this hotel again.

This is a modern bare bones hotel in a modern suburb of Amsterdam. Possibly in an urban renewal area because everything around it is new. Train station is literally at the door. The trains run every 15 minutes during the day and it's only about 17 minutes to Central Station. I always stay in central Amsterdam. But I had to get 2 rooms this trip because I brought kids along. Room rates are much more reasonable than central Amsterdam. That said, I will go back to central Amsterdam in the future. Because after the train ride to Central Station, then you have to catch a tram to where you really want to go. If you are already in central area, all you have to do is get on a tram. I'm a Hilton Diamond member and asked for an upgrade. There is none at this hotel. All rooms are the same size and no suites. Either 1 queen bed or 2 twin beds in each room. No exceptions. No executive lounge. No pool. No wonder it's cheap. But very clean and top notch staff.

Room Tip: The HVAC systems are not strong. Recommend north side rooms in summer and south side rooms in Winte...

Although outside the center of Amsterdam, the link with the center through Metro and Train is excellent. Great service and nice staff. Only negative is that the breakfast area is a bit too small for the amount of guests, especially during the weekend. Otherwise great hotel. Recommended.

Room Tip: Good connection with the center with Metro just across the square. Avoid going down late for breakfa...

We had a great stay here - right next to the Ajax stadium, shopping centre really nearby and the metro station is opposite. We bought a three day ticket for 20 Euros and this meant no messing about with tickets everyday. The room was lovely, great bathroom, breakfast was enough to keep us going all day until our evening meal. They serve, bacon, eggs, sausages, toast, croissants, donuts, cereal & fruit - so something for everyone. It was also nice to come back in the afternoon, escaping the hectic city centre and then going back in at night. Hotel also has great links to the airport, so ideally located. Supermarkets around the corner and cashpoints, so you don't have to withdraw cash in the centre of town.
One and only complaint was the room was a bit warm, but bearable - the air con was set at 18 & it was August. The Wi-Fi was great - I know others had a problem but we did not. Staff were really friendly and helped us find train times back to the airport.

We stayed there for two nights and as a IHG member I had more expectation from the hotel. The first impression of the hotel was convenient (as it's just opposite the Bijlmer Arena station, 13 mins from schiphol airport and 30 mins to city centre by metro.), clean and well- managed. The room was OK although the wall has several dirty scratches and with no fridge. However, the second day when we returned to the hotel, it was a nightmare. Neither did the cleaner replace the used cups and refill tea bags nor toilet rolls, the rubbish in the bin was still there! We were so shocked and the service was so not up to a hotel standard!

The breakfast was all about white bread and croissant, hot dishes were eggs, Bacon and beans everyday. IHG group? How sarcastic is that?!
We're truly disappointed with this place. Comparatively to the holiday inn we stayed just a street away a week ago, they're far more professional and reliable.

I stayed here with my hubby and two children and was blown away by how amazing the room was! It had by far the best space I have ever encountered and with the metro only opposite, I would definitely recommend this hotel to families. Breakfast was good, though a little like a bunfight to get to the food.

I stayed here on the weekend just gone from the Thursday to the Sunday for the Sky City Festival and i was extremely happy with the hotel.

The hotel is not hard to get to, if you ask at the airport they will tell you to get the train from platform 2 or 3 i think it was and the train goes straight there where the hotel is a 30 second walk from the train station which costs around 5 Euros.

Our plan was to drop the bags as check in was at 3 and travel into the city center but after dropping our bags we realized that there was so much to do around the hotel!

Ajax stadium, IMAX theatre, shops, food shops, clothes shops, cafes! We were also really lucky as the day we got there was the day that it was the Open day for Ajax stadium so there was so much to do.

There are a few restaurants to eat around the hotel but not that many if you are eating around 8,9 which isn't so good.

The breakfast was good, although the food is different to what we are used to in England it was enough to fill us up.

The room had a nice size bed and a nice bathroom however i was disappointed that there was not a bath tub in the bathroom. We also had a great view of the stadium.

Staff are very friendly and all spoke English which was very helpful.

Overall we had a great stay at the Hotel at such a great price that we wouldn't think twice about coming back, had such a great experience!

P.S if you are traveling home on the Sunday beware at the train times are a lot slower on a Sunday!

Room Tip: try and get a view of the stadium!
