Clean room, fresh towels daily, good buffet breakfast, close to public transport and a great supermarket nearby. Our room on the road side was a tad noisy though, would request one at the back next time. Highly recommend a tram pass if you stay here, so convenient and great for getting around the city.

I was happily surprised when entering the room due to mixed reviews - the room was big with tea and coffee facilities that were refilled daily along with fresh towels and beds were made. Only 20 mins to centre and frequent buses and trams. There was a handy supermarket 3 minutes walk away for a picnic if you're going out...

Visited this hotel last week and the room I stayed in was very spacious and had all the amenities I needed for a one night stay. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and it was quiet. It is literally steps away from the train stop which takes you straight into the city center which is a great!

well situated and great public transportation to /from airport and central city. Amsterdam is a great city to visit with a family. Many things to see and do. Dutch people are very friendly and very helpful to tourist. Many great places to shop and eat.

Nice hotel and nice price! The staff was also very nice and helpfull! If I ever go back to Amsterdam, I'm sure I'll stay in this hotel again! The metro was not that far and because we took him every time to go to the centre, we spotted a few nice places outside the city.

We've been traveling around Europe for roughly a month and experience all sorts of different hotels! Blue Square was one of the better ones. We were on the ground floor which I have really come to like so I didn't need to lug suitcases up the stairs or wait for the lifts. The rooms were nicely furnished and a good...

Stayed here in a room with 4 girls. Rooms were spacious - although a bit warm! We were on the first floor and could go out onto a terrace bit overlooking a river. Really coulnd't fault the hotel, rooms were cleaned every day with clean towels. Slightly far out from the centre but in a nice area with shops around...

This hotel, whilst not in the centre, is in a decent location. It's about 20mins on the tram/bus from the centre and the hustle and bustle of Dam Square. Hotel was nice and clean and has spacious rooms, albeit a tad hot. Hotel is easy to find and a short bus ride from airport.

I arrived with my partner on 25/06/2015 and dd request an early check in, to our surprise...the room was not ready. We had gone out to explore and come back, the room was ready and so was our luggage, we were told by reception, that we should get our own luggage trolley as they do not have staff to assist...
