Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

The Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam - Sloterdijk Station garners praise for its prime location near public transit, facilitating easy access to the heart of Amsterdam. The hotel's cleanliness and modern amenities receive commendations from guests, although some suggest the housekeeping could be more consistent. While the staff's friendliness and helpfulness are frequently highlighted, opinions on value are mixed, with additional costs being a point of contention for some. Rooms are generally well-regarded for comfort, yet there are mentions of noise disturbances and calls for renovations. Reviewers enjoy the breakfast variety but find some of the amenities basic.

From the airport we took the train to Sloterdijk Station, made a left out the doors by Starbucks, walked past the quickie mart and entered the hotel, elevator up to lobby.

Everyone speaks English making check in easy. We got there early in the morning so we hit the complimentary continental breakfast. Rolls, croissants, sliced cheeses and meats, fruit, cereal, hard boiled eggs, salad, juices and coffees. We were there for six days and did not tire of the breakfast.

This Hotel was our base camp for our stay in Amsterdam. The hotel is less expensive than the ones downtown and the location is right next to the train, bus and tram station. No need to rent a car. We would take the train to Amsterdam Centraal station and from there we went to the windmills one day and a castle the next. The trains run from early in the morning to late in the evening about every 10 - 15 minutes.

I did bring a converter and adapter to charge my iPhone which worked out great.

I would definitely stay here again and look for other Holiday Inn Express hotels when traveling to duplicate such a great experience.

This hotel is situated a stones throw from Sloterdijk Metro station which is perfect - can jump on a metro every 5 mins to Centraal which takes around 5 mins. We arrived early and had to pay €5 for an early check in (although we’d requested an early check in, was never advised of the fee”. We got a room on the opposite side to the train station (don’t be fooled, there’s another train station on this side buts it’s a lot less busy - we didn’t hear any trains during our stay).

Room is simple & clean like most holiday inns. Shower was immense!

Breakfast was really good - a lot of choice, but the pancakes stole the show!

If we were to return to Amsterdam I’d have no issues staying here again.

Normally we would book the Crown Plaza at Hoofddorp but due to Covid-19 this property is temporarily closed.

We picked this hotel because it was close to the train station and it was only a 10-minute ride by train to the airport. And most important the price for a night was much cheaper than the hotels located at Schiphol.

We arrived late in the evening at the hotel. Outside the hotel, it was surprisingly still busy with people drinking and smoking. So if you are travelling with kids not sure if this is the right hotel for you. On this night quite some young folds were staying here, to explore Amsterdam's nightlife or just finished with exploring.

Checking went quite smoothly, unfortunately, they hadn't had any toothbrushes, so we had to go to the next-door supermarket to get some toothbrushes.

As expected from a Holiday Inn Express the room was clean, small but functional. The only thing what could be cleaned better was the kettle, it had quite some limescale. So no coffee our tea for us.

We had an early morning checkout and received 2 bags full of breakfast.
Overall, our stay was ok, it served its purpose: affordable price and close to the airport.

As mentioned in the title this was my second visit to this hotel.
Me and partner stay here back in March 2018 and we returned again this February (18/02/20 - 21/02/20) this time with my brother for his birthday.
The holiday did not disappoint and was just as good as our first stay, if not better!

* Staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
* Rooms are very clean and well equipped and very comfortable beds!
The only slight negative we had was; the lack of storage for our clothes etc, five hangers wasn't really sufficient.
* Breakfast was continental only. Which was fine with us. It had a good selection to choose from. (However I do think this should be made clear on booking, as all it currently states a free breakfast included, so slightly misleading).

The hotel is easily accessible from Schiphol Airport and also into Amsterdam Centre.
At Schiphol airport we picked up a three day; "Amsterdam Travel Ticket".
The ticket entitles you to travel limitless from Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station and Amsterdam Centre; day and night, on bus, tram and metro.
Prices are used followed: 1,2 or 3 days for €17,00, €22,50 and €28,00.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is on a city break in Amsterdam. Such a great hotel and good value for money.
Should we return back to Amsterdam in the near future, we will definitely be staying here again!

Thank-you Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam-Sloterdijk :)

Dear Amieeeee88, Firstly, thank you very much for choosing our hotel again on your visit to Amsterdam. Me and my team are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us a second time and that you have awarded us a four. Regarding the breakfast, we indeed offer a complimentary continental breakfast buffet. Recently we've added cooked-to-order pancakes as well, which prove very popular. We are sorry for the confusion the description of our breakfast on our website might have caused. We are looking forward to welcome you back again in the near future.

We have stayed in an Amsterdam Holiday Inn previously and chose this one based on value for money, location and other reviews.
It is based next to Sloterdijk station where you will find the train /metro /tram and buses.
We stayed for four nights, the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast is served 7am - 10.30am, it is a continental self serve with plenty of variety, the staff were constantly cleaning tables and replenishing the food. It was very busy between 8am-9am so best avoided at that time.
One of our family was unwell on the last day, the hotel staff were very understanding and could not have been more helpful. We are very grateful to them.

Holiday Inn Amsterdam - Sloterdijk is located near the airport & around 20-25 mins by metro to the city centre. We found the reception team very welcoming & kind & room decent & clean.
Transportation is within 1 minute walk from the hotel so you can get anywhere within minutes only down point is there is not many choices of places to eat.

This is a very clean, comfortable and modern hotel, with very cooperative, friendly staff. It is located next to Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station which means you can go to Central Amsterdam by train, bus or tram really quickly as well as to Schiphol Airport -by train or bus.
On top of that, there is a cosy restaurant, Marmaris, next to the main entrance where you are offered delicious meals, a SPAR Supermarket to shop in plus several kiosks inside the station.
It goes without saying that I highly recommend this hotel if you are thinking to visit Amsterdam, you won't regret it.

Travelled with my wife during 2019 Christmas time.
We were simply in love with this hotel's location, situated right next to Sloterdijk railway, metro, tram and bus station. It makes your transportation very convenient to any part of Amsterdam and surrounding tourist attractions.
We arrived at around 7 am and warmly greeted at the reception by Miss Fa (sorry if the name is not spelled correctly). She arranged an early check-in for us at a very nominal fee of €5 and given us an orientation of all the major attractions in and around Amsterdam.
The entire hotel staff was very professional and served their guests with great sense of belongingness.
I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for making our stay wonderful!

Did not have a wardrobe and room sandals. Only know of it from the reception staff. It will be good if it was stated clearly in their website so that we can bring our sandals along. Room telephone is faulty and after reporting twice, it was not repaired throughout our stay. Room cleanliness is very poor: carpet has remnant of bubble gum and dirty, toilet bowl is not cleaned after each daily housekeeping. Facial tissues not replenished after housekeeping. Imagine the need to go to reception from 4th level to get it when telephone in the room is malfunction or to report any thing amiss.
The bright spot is good spread of breakfast and cater for gluten intolerance.
