Mercure Hotel Amsterdam City4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Staff is very friendly and speaks English! The bar, restaurant and lounge area is really nice and very open so you can hang out as long as needed. The breakfast in the morning is incredible and I would not miss out on it if I stayed there. Overall great place to stay, a little far from central Amsterdam but their transit system is really easy to navigate and get to where you want to go quickly. Also uber is a great way to get around the town!
We loved Mercure in Amsterday. It's a bit outside downtown, but the train is very easy. The hotel was clean and new.
We were very nervous about the location but it turned out to be fine. The train was closeby and came frequently, took about ten ,inutes to get to downtown amsterdam. After midnight there is a night bus that is easy too (even after partying!!) We never got a taxi, even from the airport. Easy! The room was very clean and new.
It is about a half mile/850 meter walk to the nearest tram or metro station. The hotel is definitely a bit off the beaten path, but only a 15 minute ride to downtown/Central Station. If you are interested in staying out past midnight, I don't recommend it b/c the bus stop is VERY far away - as the other modes of transport stop at 12:30am. The hotel was clean, bed nice, and the staff were friendly and helpful.
This is an excellent four star hotel. Excellent breakfast. The hotel charges for internet. They claim to be couple miles from Amsterdam, they mean couple miles from outside border of Amsterdam. The hotel is very far from Amsterdam Central station. I took a tram from Central station and it took half an hour to the end of tram line and then another kilometer of walking. The hotel staff did not know that the Amstel station could get me a train easily. Amstel station is quite close to the hotel and one could as easily walk to it. That may be a better way to get to the hotel since there are frequent non-stop trains between Amsterdam Central and Amstel stations. Please check this since I found out about the Amstel station at the end of my trip and did not try to use it
The reseptionists were great. Very helpful with directions and answering questions. Breakfast was pleasent and quiet. The city tram was just over the bridge, a short .25 Km away and the hotel also sold me a 24 travel pass. The room was spotless and VERY quiet. I couldn't have had a better experience.
