My wife and I stayed at the hotel for a short city break. The staff were very friendly and helpful when asking about the city. The breakfast was basic but enough for a quick bite. Excellent location opposite the station, perfect for getting around the city.

Ace location, great staff, the beds are the comfiest!! Three of us stayed in a room, expecting it to be a squeeze. When we went in to the room we found there was a seating area with tv, and then a staircase up to the bedroom with three dead comfy beds. Warm, quiet, peaceful, couldn't ask for more.

Couldn't have hoped for a closer hotel to central station. Friendly staff. A basic and small room but nice and clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast room was nice and a decent continental breakfast provided. Can't fault anything!

This hotel is in a great spot, just opposite the main railway station, close to the bottom of the Damrak. The lobby/ breakfast area is set out with a railway theme which is a really nice touch. We had a 5 person room which turned out to be more like a suite with an upstairs bedroom and a kitchen. The...

Stayed for 3 nights with my partner at the A-Train hotel and had a great stay (returned home yesterday (19th Dec 12). We're not train fanatics or anything but the train photos and memorabilia are still interesting and we enjoyed having a look whilst having breakfast (7-10am) – which consisted of boiled eggs, ham, cheese, cereal, bread/toast free tea, coffee,...

The owner of this small hotel must have a serious train fetich... In a good way. There are pictures of trains, miniature trains, old time tables and other train related items on display everywhere at this hotel. The staff are casual and very nice. All in all giving a top atmosphere. The location coudn't be better. Dead center of Amsterdam....

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
