Nice Amsterdam Hotel

Posted Nov 30, 2014
Pros: The four single beds option was new to us, but it was a great option, even for a family!
Cons: Everything was great, except that our keys quit working before we checked out. No biggie, but strange.
Location: There's a grocery store nearby as well as a KFC. We weren't there long enough to really explore the area around the hotel.
Our quad room at the Blue Tower was great! It was the last two nights of our two-week trip and this hotel was comfortable and very clean and the staff was very helpful. It's a ways in to Amsterdam Centraal, but the distance gave us a chance to learn the tram system and see the city between the hotel and Centraal. A word of caution if you happen to be taking a taxifrom the Amsterdam Sloterdijk (sp?) train station... This hotel is very near that train station (like 5 minutes), yet our driver charged us 20 Euro for the trip - about twice what the fair should have been. We were unable to see his meter during the trip. The hotel staff confirmed that it should have cost only about 10 Euro. They accurately quoted a price for a taxi from the hotel to the airport (which is quite a distance), so we were pleased with that.

Posted Nov 4, 2014
I was disappointed to discover the hotel is very far from the center and to travel 20minutes by tram.

Es handelt sich hier um ein Durchlaufhotel.

Posted Nov 3, 2014
Pros: Für 10 € war das Frühstück i. O.
Cons: Stellen Sie etwas mehr Personal ein, damit die vorhandenen Mitarbeiter nicht so belastet sind.
Location: Mit dem 21 er Bus gut angebunden ca. 15 Min) an die Centraal Station. Unsere Zimmer waren ruhig, nicht zur Autobahn hin gelegen.
Das Personal war stets freundlich und hilfsbereit, aber die allgemeine Atmosphäre lässt einfach ein wenig Kälte verspüren. Irgendwie fühlt man sich hier nie so richtig wohl.

Odd smell in first room. Second was adequate.

Posted Oct 30, 2014
Pros: 20 minute ride to town, good middle ground for those visiting the city and the country.
Cons: Less smelly rooms.
Location: What can't you do near by!
Had a pleasant stay at the Blue Tower whilst on a business trip. However on arrival to my room, which admittedly had a great view from the 11th floor, myself and my colleague noticed an odd smell; as if something had died in the vicinity. After a phone call to reception, the staff re-roomed me in a non smelly room, which was much better. However the receptionist did remark that some people smoke which can cause a smell, which I assured him was not the source of the problem.

Stained walls and carpet. Unpleasant surroundings

Posted Oct 28, 2014
Pros: Lobby, restaurant and lifts worked. Near tram stop which took about 20 minutes to get into town. Cheap.
Cons: Deep clean room 201. Not sure what had happened in that room or who had stayed there but there were deposits on the walls and floor.
Location: Did not seem like a pleasant area but I suppose that's what you pay for. Handy for KFC dinner/local supermarket and the tram
Slow check in whilst there were only 2 people in front of us. Room has to be one of the most disappointing ones I have ever stayed in. Whilst spacious the stains on walls and carpets were disgusting. The family refused to walk around in bare feet. Shower was fine with plenty of hotel shampoos etc provided. Towels were small and very thin. Any large people out there will struggle to cover themselves up! Pillows were very hard and the cases were twice the size. The duvet was really lumpy and did not even fit in the cover, there was a 2 foot overhang. Some lights did not work but maybe that's just a bulb issue. We did not mention this as we were only there for 2 nights. Breakfast was ok but scrambled eggs were left uncovered hence a bit crusty. Carrots mixed in with baked beans but that must be a Dutch thing. Pain au chocolat's were rock hard. Cannot complain too much for 10 euros a head. The surrounding area was primarily residential high rise buildings and felt unsafe after dark. Not a place where you want to go for a romantic walk with the wife! The local ABN Amro bank cash machine was smashed up whilst we were there and the local Indian had a cat litter tray in their lobby full of poo! There also seemed to an unusually high police presence compared to central Amsterdam. Overall a enjoyable trip to Amsterdam but regrettably will not be staying at this hotel again. Ideal for a stag weekend when you are off your face so you don't care where you sleep.

Zweckmäßiges Hotel mit guten Anschluss an ÖPNV

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: Eines der wenigen Hotels mit Vier-Bett-Zimmer. Betten, Dusche, TV und Wlan in Ordnung. Alles aber sehr zweckmäßig ohne großen Komfort.
Location: Das Hotel befindet sich am Bos-en-Lommerplein. Ca. 20 Minuten mit der Tram bis zum Hauptbahnhof.
Leider hatten wir schlechtes Wetter und konnten nicht alle Vorzüge von Amsterdam genießen. Ein Besuch im Anne-Frank-Haus und im Van-Gogh-Museum lohnen sich auf jeden Fall. Die Grachtenfahrt hat eine Stunde gedauert, was auch völlig ausreicht (es gibt auch 2 stündige). Amsterdam ist anders als andere Hauptstädte: Wenig Prunkbauten, mehr Atmosphäre durch die speziellen Bauweise. Insgesamt empfehlenswert.

Gekühltes Hotel ausserhalb vom Stadtzentrum

Posted Oct 10, 2014
Pros: Zimmergrösse und Bad waren in Ordnung. Wir haben auch gut geschlafen auf den Matratzen und es war eher ruhig.
Cons: Frühstück (Früchte zu unreif, Croissants eher vom Vortrag, kein frisches, knuspriges Brot), Restaurant viel zu kalt, Leute sassen in Jacken da.
Location: Leider ist das Hotel ausserhalb des Zentrums, dafür war es einigermassen ruhig. Keine Ahnung was in der Nähe ist, wir fuhren nur ins Zentrum.
Wir waren 4 Tage im Hotel und buchten 2x Frühstück. Am ersten Abend haben wir im Hotel gegessen, was sehr gut geschmeckt hat. Die Mitarbeiter der Rezeption waren freundlich und hilfsbereit. Der Föhn, welcher nicht funktionierte, wurde am selben Tag ausgewechselt. Das Hotel ist bereits in die Jahre gekommen, war aber ok. Wäre es näher am Zentrum würde ich es eher wieder buchen.
