Just back from a few days stay at this hotel. Nice room with great views of Amsterdam. Pleasant reception staff and very helpful with questions asked. Only downside is they are renovating some of the hotel so reception was a mess and lifts dirty due to furniture been moved in them.Also no bar? On the positive side I would come back and stay .

We were on the 10th floor, so the view was phenomenal! A very clean spacious room, although we had booked a twin, we had a single bed in there as well. We booked breakfast, so the time out wasn't wasted looking for an eatery straight away. The only down side in the room was that the bathroom wasn't fully curtained. Transport was simple and easy to use, tickets were available from reception.

Room facilities were fine; clean bedding and towels and we had a television. There were advertisements in the lifts to purchase luxury bath salts- but we didn't have a bath in our room. Staff at reception were knowledgeable of the area, which was really helpful. The hotel did not permit any smoking, nor did it have a smoking area, which is disappoint considering you're in Amsterdam! The hotel did not serve ANY alcohol at all. Not even in the restaurant. This was highly disappointing considering we'd come on a much- anticipated Christmas holiday.

This is the second time staying at this Hotel! Still a very nice hotel and very affordable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was not as good as it was on my first visit, they no longer have a liquor license and the menu is still the same...my duck was over cook and my rice was microwaved most of the food didn't seem fresh. My room was nice I like the upgrades they have made although it is still a working progress. The Wifi was slow and kept disconnecting.

Room was very clean and comfortable. bathroom was big enough with full size bath/shower. The room we had had just been redecorated. Our room had a king size bed and two single beds. So the room was big. There was a lot of new furniture in the lobby of the hotel so all the rooms are getting revamped so the comments about it being tired should hopefully be out of date. Over all it was a nice hotel and would stay again. The link to central train station is bus number 21. The link to dam square is tram number 14, They are about every 10 minutes, it's the same stop outside hotel which is about a 2minute walk. The only 2 downsides I can speak of is the bar/restaurant only sells soft drinks or alcohol free beers!!! Which is a bit odd(we bought wine/beers from supermarket next door). The second did not both me greatly but is worth mentioning is the hotel is in a residential area which seems a bit rough. It would not stop me staying here again but you seem to be watching who is around you more than normal.

Nice hotel staff are friendly and helpful!! Has a supermarket next door and a KFC! And a shopping centre close by.. Round the corner from tram/bus stops better buying a tram/bus pass at reception 17 euro for 3 days ride all day great! comfy beds lovely bathrooms! Deffo will be back here soon I hope! Can't comment on food tho as we never ate here

Very basic and dated facilities. Breakfast a bit pricey for what you get. On my last day had money stolen out of room by the cleaners. The staff at front desk were very rude and dismissive. Don't stay here unless you really have to!!!

Good position -20 minutes far from the center with public transports-. I was here for 3 nights, the room was big, clean and comfy! You can have a nice breakfast with a few more euros.. it has free wifi- working fast enough-. I enjoyed it and I'll come back here for sure!

I had a lovely stay here..everything was perfect from our bedrooms,to the facilities, to the staff and environment..didn't get to try the food but I assume it should be ok..they have also vending machines..easy accessible and ten minutes away from the central station..definitely recommend

I stayed in Best Western Blue Tower Hotel for 7 nights. It is a quite moderate Business Hotel, where there is no kind of luxury at all. If you know this well, you will like the hotel. I have 3 major comments: 1. The housekeeping is terrible, they did not change my bedding for about 4 days. They even don't care of adding soap to the bathroom kit, and when they place the bathroom kit, they place it without any kind of order, as if they just throw it. But this happened only once, not everyday to be honest. But it gave me the impression that they doing their job without any kind of care. 2. Breakfast menu did not change during the 7 days. I am not sure this is normal or not. I stayed in other hotels before, and they were changing the menu every day and then they repeat it every 3 days. 3. Front desk people, in case they are busy serving a customer, and you just try to ask a very simple question that would not take a second to reply, they tell you that they are busy in a very strong way. Concerning the Hotel location, it is close to all public transportation stations, like tram, Bus and Metro. Which made it easy for me to go everywhere. Also, lots of restaurants serving Halal Food are everywhere around the hotel, which was a big advantage for me. I really was very comfortable. Last thing, I stayed in a Best Western Hotel in Dubai before. I wrote a review that It was not a clean hotel. together with this stay in this BW hotel, I can say that cleanliness is not a big concern in this chain.
