The main reason for my review was to provide feedback on the high price for this place. I stayed here with a group on a sports tour in Amsterdam. The group originally agreed a room price with the hotel directly and a month or so before our stay, we had been told of a price increase. By this time, it...

I was actually really surprised when I stayed here. With it only being a few stars I thought oh no... What's this going to be like. However, the room was spotless, spacious, clean. The rooms had free wifi, hairdryer, fresh towels, shower gel (2in1) hand soap and plastic glasses for water. No tea or coffee facilities etc. However there were...

Dear Jane, thank you for writing such an informative review, future guests can really profit from the many useful details you include. Just one precision to make: the price of the City Tax is actually a percentage of the room price, so it is not necessarily 20 Euros. If you decide to visit us again, the whole MEININGER Amsterdam Team...

A very clean and comfortable hotel which just beside the train station. Near to airport or city centre. Bus, train or subway are just short walking distance. Nice staffs. We were staying a room for four and room space is enough for us with four luggages. Will definitely consider to stay again for next visit!
