A good budget hotel with easy transport link to city. 2 minutes walk to trams, in less than half an hour you are in the city centre. Number 7 tram for Museums, no.14 for Dam Square, Bus 69 to airport. 24 hour ticket only costs euro7.50. Hotel serves hot and cold buffet breakfast with good selection of food. Book it...

The hotel is ok, rooms were not the cleanest - would not rate as a 4* hotel, could do with a refurb. Breakfast was great, there was a great selection. Shower in rooms fantastic. Is nowhere near the centre of amsterdam - you have to get tram or bus to any of the tourist attarctions and they only run until...

I assumed that choosing a hotel NOT being close to the center would mean a better value in other areas but was wrong. There is an issue with the cleanness of the room. Both sheets, property & bathroom.Not worth the 178+taxes/day.For 100 euro OK. Then again, I compare with other cities (Berlin,Frankfurt,Milan,Barcelona,Paris), dont know the case in AMS.

Normally I wouldn't think much of a Best Western but this hotel was great! I stayed there during a tour as it provided good access to the Amsterdam city center. It took us about 15 to 20 minutes to get to the main river in Amsterdam. The hotel was very clean and upgraded. It was not what i was expecting...

The hotel was easy to find by taking the number 69 bus from the airport. The hotel is on the bus and tram lines so convenient location for heading out and about. No Problems with check in / out.

Check in was a challenge, they tried to convince me we didn't have a reservation even when I showed her my confirmation number. Breakfast was good, typical eggs, bacon, fruit, cheese, salami, etc. nice espresso machine that you made your own style of whatever coffee you wanted. Room was adequate, nothing good or bad other than no view other than...

A short drive from Amsterdam Schipohl airport, around 25 minutes. Check-in process was smooth, receptionist was very efficient. Rooms were clean and quite spacious considering there was three of us in the one room. Bedding configuration was three single beds. Restaurant was average, the mixed salad and chips were great although our lasagna and vegetable fried rice not so much....
