The Westcord Art 4* Spaarndammerdijk 304, is a great hotel! We stayed there on a bargain 3 night Easyjet City Break package in January. At more popular times in the year it might be advisable to compare prices for booking flights and hotel separately, using sites such as Trivago to find the cheapest deals for the hotel. I would strongly recommend booking a deal that includes breakfasts, as they cost 18 euros each if not already included.
It is confusing that the Westcord Art 3* and the Westcord Art 4* are on the same site and share the same Reception, Breakfast Restaurant, Bar etc. The only difference is that the rooms in the 4* section are larger and more comfortable – and therefore slightly more expensive.
Our room in the 4* wing, described as a ‘standard double’, was very spacious. It had a very large double bed (although with separate mattresses and duvets); a spacious bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle, a large washbasin with lots of surface area, a hairdryer and complimentary toiletries; a separate wc; a sofa in the window area; a large desk/dressing table with plenty of drawer space underneath, as well as a hospitality tray, and a mini-bar; adequate wardrobe space; a cable tv; loads of mirrors, and a free safe.
The only thing we felt was lacking was a hand-basin, or at least a hand-wash dispenser, in the wc. The glass walls of the bathroom and shower cubicle might also be a problem for some, as they don’t allow a great deal of privacy! The room was spotlessly clean, and very tastefully furnished. As you can guess from the name, there is modern art everywhere!
The breakfast restaurant is spacious, light and airy, with glass walls looking out onto a pleasant patio terrace. The buffet breakfast included absolutely everything you could possibly think of, from bacon, eggs etc, through to cold meats, salad, fresh fruits, yogurts and cereals, a wide variety of breads and croissants – and even the choice of hard or soft boiled eggs! Hot drinks were dispensed from machines, but the quality was excellent. Our planned ‘early starts’ for sightseeing were delayed every day because we lingered so long over the superb breakfasts!
Although this hotel is not in the centre, we didn’t find this a problem. The 48 bus stop is right outside the hotel, and it only takes 10 mins to the centre. Buses are every 10 mins during the day, and every 15 mins in the evenings. The 22 bus stop is a couple of minutes’ walk away. The 348 Night Bus runs hourly from 00.58.
An extremely useful site is 9292.nl english . The Journey Planner allows you to plan your journey from the airport to the hotel in advance, and to pre-plan trips you may want to take both within and outside the city. NB The 48 bus stop outside the hotel is called HEMPOINT. The 22 stop around the corner is called Zaanhof/Koogstraat.
The best way to get from the airport to the Westcord Art 4* is by train to Amsterdam Sloterdijk, then by 48 bus to Hempoint. The whole journey takes under 30 minutes. You need coins for the train ticket machines: 3.50 euros from the airport to Amsterdam Sloterdijk, if I remember correctly.
It’s worth looking at 24hr, 48 hr, 72hr etc bus/tram tickets, as they work out much cheaper than single journey tickets. We bought 24hr tickets at Holland Tourist Info in the airport, but you can also buy from the driver. We also bought Regional Day Tickets @13.50 euros each, and spent a lovely day visiting the villages of Edam,Volendam, Marken, Broek in Waterland and Monickendam. You’ll find ticket information on GVB Discover Amsterdam.
Reception Staff were very helpful with information and advice, as well as with the purchase of bus tickets and the booking of museums. They also gave us free street maps, which were extremely useful.
I would strongly recommend the Westcord Art 4* as a brilliant base for exploring this beautiful city and the surrounding countryside and villages.

Room Tip: Our room was 135, in the 4* wing. It was spacious and comfortable. The window looked out onto railway sidings, but that wasn't a problem as we weren't in the room during the daytime. Also, it was January. If we had been staying in the summer, we would have regretted the lack of balcony and views. (I don't think any rooms had balconies.)

I stayed in this hotel on the occasion of a bussines trip. I was quite dissapointed when I arrive to the room. The room is is a good size, nice bathroom, separate toilet. Bus the cleanliness is very poor. There was dust everywhere in the room, the smell of the room was terrible. Upon check in I had to sign a document saying that you will not smoke in the hotel. I don't see a reason for that because the room had a horrible smell of cigarets and pot. Breakfast was very basic and tasteless for a four star hotel. The elderly waiter at the hotel bar was extremely unpleasant. The rest of the staff was friendly. Positive about the hotel: Free wireless internet everywhere in the hotel, underground parking, good size rooms, friendly reception staff.
Because of the poor cleanliness of the hotel (not only the rooms, also the breakfast area, waiters wearing extremely dirty clothes) I would not stay here again and I would not recomment it to my friends.

Stayed there for about 6 nights on the occasion of a business trip. The overall impression for this hotel is quite good with the exemption of the room's carpet -the color of which, has turned to black! The hotel has a very good restaurant also. Would stay there again.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled on business

Great hotel staff are exceptional! Location ideal if u don't mind the 10 min bus ride. Would definitely recommend. Room service breakfast was basic and not worth the cost but it was for a special occasion so we didn't grudge it! Room cleaned daily so hang up the do not disturb if u don't want woken up.

Just back from three nights in Amsterdam. Booked hotel and flights with Easyjet holidays and will definitely be using them again. For the cost of the trip I thought we would be getting a budget hotel, but it is far from that. The hotel is fantastic. It is very clean and the rooms are very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast selection was one of the best I have ever had in a European city. As smokers we really appreciated having a smoking room. The bust stop is right outside the hotel door and you can buy a day pass to use on trams, trains and buses from the reception. We also booked a canal cruise from the reception. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it anyone who is thinking of going to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: If you are a smoker you can ask for a smoking room.
