Qbic is right next to the South-station in Amsterdam. You can get there with a train from Schiphol airport in only 6 minutes. Also to the south-station goes tram number 5, and subway lines 50 and 51. The hotel is located in the WTC-building, but it has it's own entrance. When you come out of the south station to the WTC-plaza, just turn right before the plaza, and you can see the Qbic hotels entrance with it's orange signs. If you come with the tram, you come to the opposite side of the WTC-building, so just walk accross the WTC-plaza towards the train and subway station, and turn left before the station. If you go inside the WTC-building from the other entrace, there are signs inside, which say "hotel", these mean the Qbic-hotel, so just follow them.
Qbic is a quite different hotel, the rooms are a bit weird (green lights and stuff), but in a good way. I liked it anyway. Please notice before you make a reservation, that the bathrooms in the rooms DO NOT have a door. We knew this, and it was not a problem for us in any way, but for some people it might be a problem, in which case, this is not the hotel for you.
The staff were very nice and helpful in every way, and we liked that they didn't force small talk on us, since we are not small talkers, we are from Finland anyway :)
The room was really quiet, and the bed was the best hotel bed I have ever slept in! The room and bathroom were really clean. Loved the "rain-shower". Our room did not have a window, which we did not mind, but if you want a window, be sure to ask for it in advance. They had free, fast wi-fi and television had many english channels, including news channels but also Comedy Central etc.
If you are looking for a business-type hotel or you know, a really normal hotel, maybe you should choose something else. We knew where we were going from the hotels description, and the hotel outdid our expectations! We will definitely go back.
There is a breakfast, cost is 11 euros per person, we did not try it.
