“Nice hotel, but maybe not the best to visit Amsterdam”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

Very nice hotel, I've ben there twice last month because was perfectly located for my purposes. Not the best located though for visiting Amsterdam, although there's a bus stop in front of the hotel that takes you to Leidseplein, every 1/2 hour. It takes 15 minutes approx.
Clean room, nice bathroom, large tube, breakfast is ok, restaurant is also good. So the hotel won't disappoint you, just weigh up if the location is good enough for you.

Room Tip: Been there twice and both bedrooms were fine. But I would avoid a room close to the elevator.

The hotel is closed to Schiphol Airport, 10’ time distance. The taxi fare is 23 EUR.
During working days it is possible to take bus no.195 (5 ‘walking distance from the hotel) and get out at IBM stop. The fare is 6 EUR/person.
Artemis is located on a quite and green area, far way from the city’s crowd. In the neighborhood there are several multinational HQ and residential appartments,nothing else to see & to do.
The hotel is addressed more to business trips, guided tours and round trips. For tourists coming as individual the hotel is far way from city’s centre : you can take bus no.145 (right behind the hotel) till Leidseplein ( around 15 ‘),the fare is 2 EUR or tram no.2 ( 15 ‘ walking distance from the hotel + 20/30 min by tram) to Leidseplein ,Dam Square or Central Station, the fare being 2,70 EUR. If travelling more than 3 times/day it is better to buy a GVB day pass for 7, 50 EUR.
But we knew from the very beginning about the distance, it is not the hotel fault.
Our reservation was for a superior twin room. At the check-in we were very disappointed for the room received (no 147). It was quite small, with old furniture and nothing spectacular as mentioned on the hotel’s site presentation. .Forget about “a deluxe 4 star modern design hotel, and design rooms”. Very small bathroom, few toiletteries available.
I asked the lady from the front desk to change the room pointing that is difficult to spend 5 nights in such a small room. Her answer was so rude, stating that all rooms are de same (untrue, I read reviews on Trip Adv) .Of course it was no way to make a change. For the first day we had to ask for towels.
There is a cold atmosphere, nothing to make you feel comfortable and relaxed on this hotel.
At the lobby the furniture needs to be refurbished.
Breakfast is a usual, continental type, few things available, the same day by day. No label for the food, you have to guess what it is (especially for the yogurt).Disappointed for the breakfast service (cleaning tables, dirty floor).
Great service and food at the restaurant for lunch and dinner. Even though it is quite expensive, you can find healthy and tasty food.

Room Tip: there are different kind of rooms

This exact time last year I would be in my room at the Artemis sleeping on the most comfortable mattress. I am feeling extremely nostalgic, so I will write my review now. The Hotel is very far form the city, but I knew that before I booked the vacation. I got a great deal from Travelocity that couldn't be beat. Know what you are getting before you book this hotel. It really is in the middle of a business district and the Hotel is hidden by tall buildings. It takes about twenty minutes to get into the heart of Amsterdam by Tram. The walk to the Tram from the hotel is about 15 minutes. This didn't bother me me cause we only slept in the hotel and spent all day in the city. The hotel was IMMACULATE. Other hotels in the same price range but located in the city looked extremely filthy when I researched them. I can not knock the hotel for being far because I did my research ahead of time and knew what to expect. The only thing I had an issue with was the shower. My partner and I are still trying to figure out how to properly use the shower without flooding the bathroom floor. Management should really post instructions. Once the bathroom floor flooded we would wipe the water up with the bath towels. This didn't go over to well with the maid service. Holland is very GREEN. The maid service would have to replace all of our towels the next day and would leave us subtle hints on how we shouldn't use all of the towels in one day. The first day we got there, there was a laminated piece of paper hidden UNDER the towels stating how green the hotel is and how we should reuse the towels. By our last day the maids depleted the number of towels they left us and left the sign in much more noticeable places. I found it amusing. I love the Artemis.

We organized a training offsite for 12 with rooms and meals. The location is perfect - close to the airport for travellers and close to the city for excursions - but far enough away to hold staff attention. The art theme is good, the restaurant food way above average! Service was excellent from checking through to dinner in spite of a packed restaurant.

Meeting rooms were nice - good views with minimal distraction perfect for a group up to 20. The mid day snacks were good and the Beamer and screen were offered as part of our package. We requested wifi and additional outlets and received at no additional charge. Will use again!

if you want to stay in Amsterdam and enjoy the delights and sights of this great city, then this is not the hotel for you. In the middle of nowhere, a business district, there are no local restaurants, pubs, or even areas to walk.
The rooms are very nice, the hotel design is quirky, the restaurant ( kitchen) pretty average, but a tram, or even more expensive Amsterdam taxis. cost a fortune to get into the city centre.
Frnkly, it could be a hotel anywhere

We got a steal of a deal through Expedia but did not anticipate how far it was from City Center. The hotel is literally in a business center, next to the MEXX Design HQ, and we would have to take a 20 min tram/bus every time we wanted to explore the town. 2.50 euro each way certainly adds up in a week!

I wouldn't stay here again. Clean accommodations, beautiful decor, larger rooms, great amenities, but unless you have a car or don't mind the commute, stay by Museumplein or Leidsplein. It's further away from the crazy partying, but you can easily walk to Dam Square.

Room Tip: Nice big king beds, get one overlooking the outdoor terrace

Artemis is a great hotel, with nice rooms, friendly staff and a nice breakfast buffet.
It's location though is pretty bad if you're visiting Amsterdam for vacation as it's pretty far from the city.Good internet, room appliances and very clean.
