The Schiphol Hotel is a hotel just a few kilometers away from Schiphol Airport and there is a free transport service from the airport to the hotel and back, where you can find the bus on the platform A (it comes at a frequency of 15-20 minutes). The hotel is very well-equipped, the restaurant (next to reception) is exquisite and the service is good. The rooms are big and well-equipped, but the bad thing is once more the price of internet (6 Euros for 15 minutes).
We stayed there 4 days, it´s close to the center of Amsterdam and there is a walk with many cool views of the city from the hotel center. It´s well communicated and the stop of the tram is just in front of the hotel. Inside it is very tranquil, there is no noise and next to it is a small port and you can see huge boats that arrive by night while you are in the bed. The beds are great, super comfortable and with big pillows. The quality-price relation is good.
The Hotel Arena in Amsterdam is one of the most unique hotels I have ever stayed at. Over the years, it's been a chapel, orphanage, and backpacker hostel, but now it's a modern hotel with a very peculiar minimalist design. It's located near Plantage, but this is not a problem as there are plenty of trams that can take you to where you want to go. The decor is pretty spare. When we arrived, there were no budget rooms and we had to upgrade, so we enjoyed a giant room with high ceilings, a great bed, and minimal decoration. To give you an idea, the closet was a school locker. However, the design felt daring and industrial at the same time. The hotel has a great restaurant and one of Amsterdam's most famous clubs, so it's perfect for young people.
Holiday Inn Amsterdam is located in the outskirts of Amsterdam and is very convenient for those who travel by car. The tram is very close but the metro is not, and it only takes about 20-25 minutes to reach Dam Square. The hotel is also close to the highway and has external parking at non-prohibitive prices (and it's free at night and on Saturdays and Sundays). The room was quite spacious with two double beds, perfect for families. The rooms have modern decor, carpets and lots of amenities. The best part was undoubtedly breakfast..there was a great selection of cold cuts, hot dishes, juices. Excellent value for a hotel in August, too. A triple room for 115 per night including breakfast.
This hotel, located next to Muziekgebouw, just five minutes by tram (26 and 25) from Centraal Station, is a superb choice to stay. The rooms are spacious, and the services are great - exactly what you'd expect from this prestigious Swiss chain. It's a modern building, bright, and spacious, with splendid views of the city. The staff are attentive, and we'd particularly like to single out Hans for his great service. Our room was on the 11th floor, and was spacious, with a large window and everything we needed for a pleasant stay, including bathrobes.
Because of its quiet location, the bustle of central Amsterdam won't disturb your sleep. The breakfast was great, with particular emphasis on the amount of fresh fruit, and the quality of the hotel's own products. The hotel offers transit to Centraal Station every half hour. Two important services: first, the computers with internet access and printer, allowing you to print your boarding pass easily before you travel. Secondly, the luggage storage service, which is well-organised in a room which only staff can access, with an excellent labelling system. It may seem a bit out of the way, but in reality, this is a great hotel with wonderful service and excellent connections. In summer, or in good weather, you can get there in ten minutes walk from Central Station, spacious rooms (a luxury in European capitals), great breakfast, and rest guaranteed.
It was part of my InterRail pass!! we visited 6 different cities in one month. The best travel experience of my life without any questions ... And for that reason rest was fundamental! This hotel, located 10 minutes from the heart of the city of Amsterdam, has excellent facilities and an unbeatable location at the junction of five canals. The views are unique and the staff are nice and act with great professionalism. They helped to resolve some personal incidents that happened to us on that part of the trip. Fantastic value
