Best Western Blue Tower Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was not in the best part of town. It was also at least 20 minutes from the city center. The hotel itself was hard to find. The condition of the hotel was not the best. Really dated. The toilet would run every time we flushed it. The handle to the door on our floor was broken.

I had to book a hotel last minute while getting into Amsterdam. This hotel was my only option. I had stayed here in the past. The room I had could use some new paint as the walls were starting to chip. The carpet is old. Staff were helpful with information. I took bus 21 to get to/from Amsterdam Central. Overall it was ok.

Easy to get to from Central station bus or tram. Clean rooms, helpful staff, great amenities.

We were very happy with our choice of hotel.Without exception the staff was A-1,very friendly and always helpful.Very clean.Location is a away from center of city,but there is great public transportation.Around the corner next to KFC take Tram #14 to DAM SQUARE (central tourist location)=10+min.or # 21 bus =15min to central station.Tickets available on the tram up to 48 hrs unlimited use on the bus only up to 24 hrs. We can highly recommend this hotel G.R. Fort Myers Florida

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.

The location is not the best. The hotel staff was not very helpful with directions, etc. The room and especially the bathroom was exceptionally striking but it was obviously not laid out for functionality. The bathroom light was wired to a cabinet spotlight in the main room making it impossible to use the bathroom after dark without casting blinding light on those trying to sleep.

The room was clean and spacious. The staff bordered on rude. The breakfast deal is a good one with a full breakfast buffet inclding access to a great coffee and cappuccino machine. But beware the information sheet translated into English said the cost was 5 Euro, if you booked the day before. The actual cost was 10,50 Euro. I think the translator made a mistake, they also tried to charge me full price even though I had booked the day before. But keeping that in mind it still was a great value because I drank the cost of my breakfast in coffee!

The beds are extremely comfortable. However the bed did have a dirty pillow on it which was gross.

The Blue Tower Hotel in Amsterdam is a good deal for the price paid. The area is a bit sketchy and a little outside of the city but overall decent. The beds were super comfy and the rooms were nice.
