I was very happy with the hotel overall. I was in a single room as while small had everything I needed. It is located right beside a train station and is only one stop away from central train station and two stops from the airport Staff were friendly and helpful and I would recommend this place for anyone wanting a...

A wonderful stay in the Meininger hotel hostel! The shower had unlimited hot water, it was within a minute or two from the train, and had comfortable and clean beds. My only complaint is that the tenants next door were very loud. Bring earplugs!

This hotel was the perfect choice for our needs as we visited Amsterdam Centraal (where all the attractions/museums are) everyday and it was just 1 stop on the train which was a €10.80 return for 2 adults which was very reasonable. The hotel was right next to the station, Amsterdam Sloterdijk so was perfectly located, just outside the busy city...

Dear Max, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are really pleased to hear that your stay with us was a perfect choice!

Lovely staff, comfortable beds and very clean, modern rooms. Spent three nights here with my mother and younger sister in a three bed ensuite. Not much selection in regards to meals/snacks aside from muffins, beers and alcohol; although the breakfast seemed like a good deal but not much choice for a vegan like myself - though the lack of varied...

My boyfriend & I stayed in the Meininger Hotel from Sunday 23rd to Wednesday 26th October. It is in such a great location, next to Sloterdijk train station, which is only a 4 minute train to the central of Amsterdam. The hotel room was spacious and clean! We booked at room for two, but there was a double bed and...

Great place, nice staff and decent breakfast. Not a long way from the city, with only one train stop away. There was a kind of cold-ish breeze in my single room, I tried adjusting the temp and fan power, which still left a breeze, which left you unable to lie down without a hoodie or the sheets covering you.

Hi Kelly, Thank you so much for providing your comments. I would like to take this opportunity to explain that the MEININGER brand is designed for the basic needs of urban travelers.

I spent this weekend in Amsterdam and stayed at this hotel with two of my friends. Overall I was really impressed. Friendly staff. Clean room, lovely bathroom, however as a room for 3 it was tiny. Very narrow. We each had a single bed but there was about 30cm between them, not easy to move around. Looking on the fire...

Although my title says it sits between a hostel and a hotel. It's still a nice version of either. Just a very nice hostel. I stayed with friends and there was 3 of us in the room.
