Wonderful hotel, away from the hustle and bustle yet a simple tram ride to the city center. Spent 3 restful nights, 3 hot breakfasts and one outstanding dinner. Parking is under hotel and internet worked fine. Great value, service, quality overall and would recommend.

Clean room, fresh towels daily, good buffet breakfast, close to public transport and a great supermarket nearby. Our room on the road side was a tad noisy though, would request one at the back next time. Highly recommend a tram pass if you stay here, so convenient and great for getting around the city.

I was happily surprised when entering the room due to mixed reviews - the room was big with tea and coffee facilities that were refilled daily along with fresh towels and beds were made. Only 20 mins to centre and frequent buses and trams. There was a handy supermarket 3 minutes walk away for a picnic if you're going out...

Visited this hotel last week and the room I stayed in was very spacious and had all the amenities I needed for a one night stay. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and it was quiet. It is literally steps away from the train stop which takes you straight into the city center which is a great!

well situated and great public transportation to /from airport and central city. Amsterdam is a great city to visit with a family. Many things to see and do. Dutch people are very friendly and very helpful to tourist. Many great places to shop and eat.

Nice hotel and nice price! The staff was also very nice and helpfull! If I ever go back to Amsterdam, I'm sure I'll stay in this hotel again! The metro was not that far and because we took him every time to go to the centre, we spotted a few nice places outside the city.

We've been traveling around Europe for roughly a month and experience all sorts of different hotels! Blue Square was one of the better ones. We were on the ground floor which I have really come to like so I didn't need to lug suitcases up the stairs or wait for the lifts. The rooms were nicely furnished and a good...
