The Student Hotel Amsterdam West

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A large hotel about one hour walk from the city centre. Readily accessible by public transport - metro and tram stops immediately adjoin it. A 3* hotel with all the facilities that requires. Easy and quick access to Schipol airport. Positives. A big and well run establishment. Our room was clean, well equipped and well maintained. Air conditioning wasn't too noisy. Numerous power points and USB ports. The free Wi-Fi was first rate. TV was pretty good and included English language channels such as BBC1 and BBC2. Access to lifts, stairwells and individual corridors is security controlled. A safe in each room. The restaurant / bar is a bit basic but none the worse for that. The menu is limited but does simple items to a good standard. The staff are all friendly and efficient. Negatives. As the name suggests, its brand is directed at a younger clientele and many of the guests were in their early 20s. There is a large common room on the ground floor with table tennis, pool table and bar football table. We were a little apprehensive about this at first, being a 60 something year old couple. But all the staff and fellow guests were entirely welcoming and we felt at ease. Rooms are only serviced once every two days. Would we stay here again?. Probably not since somewhere nearer the city centre would suit us better. That said, the hotel is fine and is good value for money. It will suit many people.

Hotel was lovely, rooms were very nice and staff were also very helpful. A lot of nice things to do in the hotel with games and the bar etc, will definetly be back to stay again. Hotel really made the holiday a nice one.

We were there for a week-end. Very nice hotel! Very young and fresh vibe! Everything seems new (I think they just opened). I really loved the design. The room was really clean and new. By the tramway you are downtown in 15 minutes, very easy. You feel very welcome. I recommend!

We’re two college students, arrived for a short vacation - prolonged weekend in Amsterdam. We arrived after midnight, there was nice music on, people playing in the lobby, the staff was very friendly and immediately shocked us with fresh traditional (stroop)waffles!!!!! :))) (best imaginable welcome gesture to your country!) This hotel is just SO COOL - modern, young, welcoming! We just couldn’t get enough of all the funny signs, sayings, gadgets and the super-comfy beds! We also took the breakfast, which we enjoyed very much - a rich selection of pastry and delicious fresh bread :) Our room was just the right size for two people for a weekend, all clean and pretty, again with funny signs and writings everywhere. The hotel is close to the center (took a approx. 15 minute bike ride), also the subway, bus and tram stops are right next to the hotel! (but we honestly recommend the bikes... :))) ) Overall we enjoyed Amsterdam and the hotel sooo much, we can’t wait for our next semester vacation to come back! Thank you for a fantastic experience!

The hotel was very nice and we had a wonderful time. Our room was what we pictured from the website. The only problem was the tram didn’t go direct into the centre of Amsterdam but it was easy to get an alternative which was provided by the hotel. Overall I would recommend staying here and when we come back, we’ll be staying here.

This was an absolute fantastic hotel with lovely decor throughout, very comfortable beds and the nicest staff. The breakfast is really good value of booked the night before and the food is very good. All rooms come with a coffee machine and pods. Really easy to get around the city as it is right beside the tram stop, cheep in a taxi from the city centre too if your out a bit later in the evening and its just as easy to get to other parts of the country as it is beside the train station too. Hard hotel to beat for the price. Would recommend to anyone visiting the city.

Fantastic hotel, really great bed, was much bigger than what I thought it would be, easy access to central Amsterdam, staff were very friendly and the general vibe within the hotel was great. The design of the rooms is excellent and everything about the hotel is just excellent

Very good experience. The STAFF was simply adorable, SWEETY AND helpful at all times. The hotel looks trandy, modern, stylish. It's easy to get to. Breakfast is delicious, you can't miss it. The room is tidy, clean, wellcapt.. really new!

I am grateful to this hotel. I liked friendly staff, restaurant service, their discounts, I slept really well during my stay and the students around gave me a nostalgic feeling. I will definitely advise other people to stay there and I myself would stay there again. Walking from TSH to Amsterdam Centraal was the best!

Very nice hotel. Free access to the pool table and ping pong. Nice little chilled tv area and staff were lovely. Was greeted with a little caramel waffle biscuit overall enjoyed the stay here very much.
