Recent guest reviews

inside a new building, very clean room, well maintained. Welcoming staff. Near metro station. Very close to Amsterdam ajax football station. breakfast is basic internet connection is very bad compared to other locations

Very good stay in a business area 10 minutes with the metro from central station . Descent size room very good breakfast excellent room service and very good value for money comparing to the holes in the city center which are overpriced. Recommended

Very good hotel for short stay. 20 mins on metro to centre. 5 mins walk to metro. Room clean. Food excellent. Staff very helpful. Would stay here again. Facilities good. Easy check in. Arrived early baggage drop off secure.

My husband and I took a weekend break to Amsterdam and stayed at this hotel. Our expectations where exceeded. Staff where friendly and very helpful, Junior Who checked us in definitely deserves a mention for his professionalism and courtesy. We were upgraded to an executive suit which was modern and comfortable. The bathroom had a huge shower and bath, velvet curtains and tastefully decorated. Beds and pillows comfortable. There was a stocked bar fridge that was reasonably priced as well. Even though this hotel is a holiday express it rivals some of the Intercontinental we’ve experienced. The hotel is on a bus route and about a 10 minute walk from the metro.

Have traveled to this area multiple times before. I decided to try this this hotel after having issues with my last stay at the Hampton Inn Amsterdam Arena Towers. The Holiday Inn Express was a nice surprise. They definitely exceeded my expectations. The location is great (and walking distance) if you are attending events at the Amsterdam arenas, Ziggo Dome, etc. It is also convenient to the train station (with train to/from the airport) and shopping/dining. Reception (located on the second floor) was friendly and efficient. I received an upgrade to a corner room with a curved wall of glass windows. It was very contemporary, different, and very nice. Breakfast (also on the second floor) was very good. It featured hot and cold options and attentive staff. Had dinner with friends at the adjoining Holiday Inn restaurant. The salmon was excellent, but service could be improved. Enjoyed my 2 night stay at Holiday Inn Express and would definitely return...

Strange consept with two hotels in the same building. Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn express with two separate receptions. Not until I got there I realised which hotel I had booked. It was the Holiday Inn express. A three star hotel with average everything. Left me with no impression what so ever.

This hotel is not bad for visitors on a relatively cheap budget who want to visit Amsterdam, although it is located about 20min from the Central Station by subway. It is near the Arena, so may be busy during sport events. It is about 10 mn walk from the station. Rooms are very clean, of decent size with a small but nice bathroom. Bathroom amenities provided (soap, shower gel, moisturizing lotion). rooms are quite. Breakfast buffet is good, with very good pastries.

Had a lovely few days in Amsterdam sightseeing with my wife, this hotel is not in the centre but with excellent train and metro links to the centre and the airport. we had 3 day travel tickets that covered everything. The Express is linked to the Holiday Inn (not express) same building. We had a meal in the other bit one night, which was nothing special, expensive and could not charge to room as we were in express!!! weird rules. Hotel was clean, comfortable and well maintained, staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was OK typical continental buffet, nothing to write home about though.

We booked this hotel as price was reasonable for Amsterdam. It is not in the centre but it is 5 minutes walk from the Biljmer Arena station and from there you can take the metro to the centre, it takes about 15 minutes. If you leave in the morning and back in the evening it is not a problem to be a bit far from the centre. The room and bathroom are nice and buffet breakfast was quite good. We left very early in the morning the last day so we missed breakfast but they prepared one take away for us. It is a good hotel and I would stay here again unless I really want to be in the centre.

my daughter cancelled due to illness sicknote and unfit for work given as evidence. cancelled within 48 hours of booking been awaiting a refund for over a month manager not helpful booked with booking .com and they are both refusing to refund
