Excellent all round ! (Superior room )

This hotel is excellent in every way . The rooms are modern , comfortable and stylish .Free Wi-Fi .Location, location,location !! The hotel is in a relatively quiet location but is literally ten minutes away from Central Station in the center of Amsterdam .The hotel parking is free which is a real bonus - however , park your car and forget it ! There is a hotel shuttle bus that runs you straight to the center of Amsterdam .We hardly ever waited (if at all) for more than a couple of minutes . The last shuttle leaves the sister hotel at 12.15am -but if you want to stay later a taxi will cost you fifteen euros . Happy 'hour' in the bar is from 5pm until 9pm where the drinks are half price in comfortable surroundings . It is a good guide to the hotels comfort that it is used by a major U.S. airline for thier crews .( the beds in the superior rooms are super kingsize ) There are some small restaurants and takeaways opposite within two hundred yards and on Saturdays there is a market in a large car park five hundred yards away . The shopping in Amsterdam is excellent . It was our second visit for a weekend away and we still want to go back - I will only be looking at one hotel -The NH Galaxy. Don't let any pictures of the outside put you off . The building used to be a hospital .. Because of the shuttle we would go into town twice a day . An eight hour drive from our home in northern France but well worth it .

Great Value, Good Location - Incredibly Helpful Staff

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful with everything. Was late to a wedding and got a small amount of blood from shaving on my shirt. They helped me remove the stain in mins and helped with anything they could. Overall, good value, nice location if you do not want to be in city center, yet are willing to walk 5 blocks to the free ferry across. Definitely recommend it.

Break Away

This was a last minute booking which caused a little delay at check in when we arrived as the receptionist could not find the details but organised a room as we requested. I tend to stay in a city centre hotel in the winter and this hotel in the summer. They have a great shuttle bus to a free boat crossing which gets you to main centre of amaterdam in 10 minutes. The rooms were clean and modern, though we "missed" our room clean and had to ask reception to have our room cleaned after 3 days. Staff are helpful and friendly and the hotel was great for the price as always. I would definitely recommend this hotel as you would not find this standard

Great value!

The hotel is much better than most without the hefty price tag. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the only thing I can fault was the uncomfortable pillows - though they even have a pillow service to sort that out if need be!

Dont bother with the local pubs and shops near the hotel. The shuttle runs every 15 mins to the centre of town up until midnight.

This is an airline stewardess CREW hotel!

The hotel told us upon check in that it is an airline CREW hotel. As such, they treated us as second-class citizens in every way possible! Every time I asked for something, whether it be postage stamps or internet access, I was told "Yes!". Then they immediately asked if I was a stewardess for ***** Airlines, and when I said that I wasn't, I was then told "No!". Even when I tried to buy coffee in the lobby, the price went from $12.00 for two espressos (outrageous!) to over $25.00 (INSANE!) when I told them I wasn't a stewardess for ***** Airlines!

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Either take the free hotel shuttle into town, or walk a mile to the FREE ferry across the bay to the Central Train Station to get into Amsterdam. But do NOT take a taxi! The cab we took from train station to hotel ripped us off by charging DOUBLE the going rate! (As bad as the hotel ripping us off for amenities!)

WARNING: This is a "CREW" hotel for airline employees!

Upon checking in, we were advised by the front desk staff that this is a "CREW HOTEL" for D. Airlines employees. (A major airline with a huge base in Atlanta, whose name starts with a "D" and rhymes with felta.) As such, hotel guests who are not D. Airlines employees are definitely treated as second-class citizens! Every time I asked about something at the front desk (ie: postage stamps, shuttle service, free WiFi internet access, etc.), I was told "Yes!", followed by "You ARE a D. Airlines employee, correct?" And when I answered "No, I do not work for D. Airlines", I was then told the answer was "NO" to whatever I had just asked about! Even a cup of coffee in the lobby cost TWICE as much when they discovered that I didn't work for D. Airlines! (Cost: 27 Euros for 2 cups of coffee and 2 stinking pastries! That's almost $40!) Bottom line: Non D. Airlines people are definitely treated as second-class citizens at this hotel!

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Getting to central Amsterdam or the Central Railroad Station is a looong walk from this hotel! Two options: 1.Take the free hotel shuttle (which only runs certain limited hours) to/from central Amsterdam, and AVOID taking a taxi! Or, 2. You can walk from the hotel to the ferry stop and cross the bay to the Central Train Station on a free ferry that runs 24/7. Warning: It is at least a one-mile walk from the hotel to the ferry stop! Another warning: Do NOT take a taxi unless you absolutely must! The taxi we took from the train station TO the hotel charged us DOUBLE the usual rate and ripped us off! This hotel is definitely NOT close to the center of Amsterdam where all the action is! We spent a lot of unnecessary time walking to/from the hotel and the ferry stop, which is definitely no fun at the end of the evening when you're ready to go to your room and hit the bed, only to realize you have a mile-long walk after you get off the ferry! Another money-saving tip: If you decide to stay here (which I do NOT recommend!), do NOT spend any money at the hotel for coffee, pastry, bottled water, etc. Leave the hotel and walk a block or so to the many shops and small restautants in the area. You can find whatever you need in these shops, and at a fair price. The hotel is a total ripoff for everything!
