The Student Hotel Amsterdam West

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very functional hotel with everything you need (e.g., bike rentals, bar/restaurant, etc.) at a fair price.

Good value for money option for travelers not seeking too much comfort.

It is a bit far from the city center, but transportation is super convenient and there is a bus right in front of the hotel that will take you to the city center in less than 20 mins. The staff is friendly and always willing to help. I had an issue with my room service (the room did not get cleaned for a couple of days) but they helped promptly.

I stayed throughout Europe on my trip and this room was the smallest I experienced - for two people, there was only a full size bed (versus 2 twins everywhere else) - and it had to be against the wall too. Luckily, someone from the staff (Waulter) was awesome and very helpful and let us switch rooms so at least out bed was not against the wall. Because it's also a dorm for students, this place has lots of great amenities. I wish the food were a little better in the restaurant, but it's not bad as long as you avoid the mushroom pasta. The location is far-ish but it is right next to a tram and a train stop so it is easy to get places.

The Student Hotel in Amsterdam is very nice, not luxurious! Very clean! It is out of the central city, which makes for a quieter stay but very convenient to Tram 13 and only a 10-12 minute ride to central station. There is a nice work-out area, a library, a restaurant, lounge etc. You can rent bikes on site if you like. For us it was very good value for a few nights and we would certainly visit again.

Very conveninent location from/to airport and downtown Amsterdam; the suite I stayed is good (larger room with good bathtub, microwave, ketchen over, refrig etc); Good security control and feel safe around; but... room service was bad (no cleaning, no replacement of dirty towlers etc during my 5 day stay! No good restaurants nearby....
