“THE HELPFUL HOLIDAY INN!!!”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Went to Amsterdam to see Madonna at the Ziggo Dome and this hotel came up as the nearest to the venue.What a very good hotel this was,the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them,the only down side was that the brekfast was very average considering the money they were charging.It is in an excellent location right next to the tram and metro stations and the motorway network.

Came for an exhibition at RAI. Hotel was a short walk from the venue. I hate walking and it wasn't much, lol. Train and tram stops literally around the corner. a E3.50 train ride from the Airport with direct (10min) or one change (15 min) service. Subway line to city center in 15 min. did not try the tram. Bought a 24 hour GBV card at the metro stop and just used the subway as it was quicker for me. As others said, not much in the immediate area....take the train in.

Stayed on 14th floor (Exec level) with an upgrade. room aroudn foot of bed a bit snug and desk not to spacious, but bed was very comfortable. Bathroom immaculate. Water pressure a bit low on upper floor. Doors are a bit thin, but there are not that many rooms on a floor and not much foot traffic as rooms spread out in H pattern from central elevator. hot water pot in room with coffee. Mini bar registers a hit if you move anything whilst putting water or snacks in fridge...don't forget to talk to desk on checkout.

Restaurant was tasty if a bit pricy. The E10 small bar snacks platter was actually a good bargain though. Liverwurst type sausage, a tartar meat sausage, cheese, olives, spring rolls, croquettes, and chicken wings. Steak sandwich was very good, too. Breakfast was fine.

Costs are a high here....breakfast and internet both on the E20 scale. Not the cheapest stay overall, but some nights were pretty reasonable. WOuld definitely consider again if price was good.

loved the hotel, spacious rooms and ideal location for attending a conference at the Rai. Took the tram into town, was a nice route with on the way a lot of different restaurants to visit. Amsterdam is a nice city, especially by night the canals are great! Breakfast was included and loved the big variety!

Travelled to Amsterdam to work at the RAI conference centre. This hotel is a fantastic place to stay if you are planning to attend a conference there due to it's very close proxmity to the venue (6 minutes walk). The hotel is situated in the business district of Amsterdam and I found it to be relatively quiet despite being close to a main road. Although it is some distance outside of central Amsterdam, there is a railway and tram station 2 minutes from the hotel that provides cheap and reliable transport to the Central station.
The rooms are spacious for the occupancy and very clean. My room was on the 10th floor so had great views of the local area for miles, but I could imagine other views on the other side of the hotel being less pleasant due to other high-rise hotels behind. The room had everything you could expect for the price; tea and coffee facilities, electronic safe and even a well-stocked mini bar. I also found the beds very comfy and slept well for the duration of my stay.
The hotel staff were very friendly and when I did have an issue nothing was ever too much of a problem. The range of food at breakfast was good with a range of healthy and not-so-healthy conteniental fare, everything you could want. Other areas of the hotel were in good condition and were not run-down as you so often see in hotels of this type.
Overall it was a good experience, I'd definitely stay again and I would highly recommend staying in this hotel if you are visiting an exibition at the RAI centre.

We booked it through the priceline so we got a great price on it, but if a person is to pay the full price, it's not worth it. The hotel was nice and very clean, the staff friendly and helpful, but I would agree that it's not a 4-star hotel, it is more 3 and a half. It is right next to Rai Center and about 10 to 15 minutes on the tram from the city centre. We enjoyed our stay there.
