weekend trip

the room was amazing, big bed, very comfortable well worth staying, had no problems at all, the only issue we had was to wait 45 min to get extra towels, so best to phone in advance for things.

not a central location

this hotel is good value for money but the staff are very rude and not helpfull at all and you can get a tram or a bus and it stops outside this hotel but the plus points are this is a very cheap area of amsterdam.

Weekend away

This was our first visit to Amsterdam and the staff were very helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean and the hotel is in a quiet area. It is a bit far out but access to the city centre was easy by tram which could be found a few 100m from the hotel

Excellent Location and Cost!

Hotel is located approximately 45 to 50 min walk from Amsterdam Center, i used this to walk around instead of using the public transport. The Staff was very friendly and caring and tried to help in anything they could and accommodate special needs of a guest. Only downside i found, was the lack of breakfast which was also rather expensive, considering that just a walk outside could get you very satisfying breakfast for a third of the cost.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

It's about a 50 min walk to the city, if you do power walk then you can probably do it around 40 min or less. There are a lot of food places around, so avoid eating in the hotel. Not that hotel food is bad, it's just typical and rather expensive in my opinion.

Great choice!!

Everything was excellent, not to mention the price! ~£50 a night for a triple room, so we all only paid out ~£70 for the entire 4 night stay! Room, bathroom and bed were all brilliantly clean - the only negative we did note however was that the maids were a bit sparse in their cleaning (it only seems that the beds were made daily, and the tea/coffee's were replenished once during the stay, but not much else was seen!). The reception staff were friendly and helpful, as was the in-house bar man. Also, whilst not located directly in the centre of the city, a 1minute walk and a 10/15 minute tram/bus ride took you to the very heart of the city, so it wasn't a problem whatsoever! Would definitely return here, especially for the same price!!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Go to the main city train station and buy a 1/2/3 day travel pass for unlimited tram/bus travel around the city - we saved about €20 a day just by purchasing a one off payment €16 3 day travel pass!

excellent hotel!! downside is location

Hotel was great for price. Hotel staff were very helpful with giving directions and even telling us about takeaway places. Room was spacious and bed was very soft. only downside was the distance. the distance is ok if you know which transport to take. its around 35 euro in taxi to central Amsterdam station. and is you get the 21 bus this take you directly outside central amsterdam station aswell and this is only 2.70 euro for a single adult. overall if you can handle getting public transport over there then this hotel is soo worth the price.

Blue Tower Hotel, Amsterdam

The hotel was really excellent, with great breakfasts & very helpful staff. The only problem, as others have found, is that it is quite a way out of the centre of Amsterdam. There was a tram very near which took you to Dam Square, took about 20 mins., but this was not so good to have to come all the way back if eating out in the city.
