This is not a 4 star hotel, the room was cold and damp, I have never stayed anywhere where when you wake up and your clothes were damp, despite the heating system saying 30 degrees!! The TV worked first night but not the 2nd. The noise was awful, you could hear doors banging and people talking I am assuming in...

Clean, large room and bathroom. Very friendly staff. Hotel was fully booked while we were there which made breakfast awkward, had to wait for a table to be cleaned, but was sorted promptly. Safe and secure parking. Out of city centre, but 15 min bike ride had us right in the centre.

This hotel is about 30 minutes by bus from Amsterdam Centraal or about a 25 Euro cab ride. However it is a pleasant place once you get past the architecture. It really is a big blue square building. The room was comfortable and larger than what you might expect in the central city. Easy access to bus and tram lines....

Everything is good except the water strength in the bathroom, which is too small to have a good shower. The room is large and well furnished. The location is kind of o.k., not close to the city center but easy to find trams.

I stayed at this hotel for 1-night - as part of a Contiki tour group. I was traveling as part of a trio. Check-in was completed by our tour manager so I cannot really comment on that (seemed easy) and the front desk personnel seems friendly. The room was a good size for a triple. The sheets were clean and...

The external look of this Amsterdam Hotel may not be too attractive, but the internal decor maintains the same Best Western standard. The Room is spaciously enough and furniture is practically arranged. The location is a bit far from the City and Central Station, but there are a few tram / bus routes with stops nearby, that go directly to...

No chance to park a car to put the luggage in the entrance. If you ask proberly you receive a city map for a long way around the block to fin, if you are lucky, a far to narrow garage. Disgrasing check in over one hour (!!!!!!!!) (we are BW platinium rewards member). Dirty room and unfunctional remote for tv.
