We finally took our plane to Amsterdam, and arrived at Schiphol Airport. The most interesting part was the 10 minute ride in the plane throughout the runway. On this day we had beautiful weather, sunny and just warm enough. We started with a cheese and wine tasting at Reypenaer, we had delicious cheese aged naturally at a family warehouse that has …
I landed at Amersterdam Schiphol Airport at 8:00 July 2nd. Even the airport was filled with wooden shoe souvenir's! Not much looks different from what I remember 10 years ago. My family and I are so happy to be back. This is where my dad is from, and we have lots of relatives here. I love learning about my father's heritage and homeland. Since …
From Meghan's journal.... We started off the day bright and early with Michiel and Elsmere picking us up at the hotel. On the way to Madurodam we visited the sea and took some pictures by the beach. We then continued on to Madurodam, a miniature scaled version of the Netherlands. We met Floris and Jose at Madurodam and were the first to go in. …
Hello my smart, kind, wonderful, good looking children!! Mommy loves you - even waaaayyyy over here! I'm sad to say that I won't have any pictures to link with my blogs until after I get back home. Apparently my cellphone doesn't work internationally. I'm still able to take pictures with it, so that's good news! I I had an amaaazing day and would …
We've arrived safely. I am now a proud supporter of KLM. Not only did we have our own TV screens on the flight but the brownies served with dinner had raspberry icing on top. It was an uneventful train ride from the airport to Centraal Station, except for Kevan talking very S-L-O-W-L-Y to a guy he thought spoke Dutch but who turned out to be as …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Although Holiday Inn is a world wide chain, it sure is different in another counrty. It shows the local culture all throughout.

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Amsterdam
We stayed at the Holiday Inn for New Year's weekend, 12/30 - 1/1/05. When checking in, we were immediately upgraded to the Executive floor without asking (they may have been out of non-smoking rooms). The room was clean and spacious, with a nice view, and the king sized bed was very comfortable (such a relief after the tiny, lumpy bed at our hotel in Rome). It's a few miles from the city center, but it's a very short walk to the tram, which will take you to town in about 4 minutes. The trams shut down before 12am, so on NYE, we took a taxi back to the hotel for around 16 Euros. The staff went out of their way to give us directions, recommendations, and were altogether very helpful. We had a great experience at the Holiday Inn, and look forward to staying there again next time we visit Amsterdam.
I have been regularly using this hotel for the last 3 years now for business purposes as we have an office close by.
The hotel is situated some way from Amsterdam city centre. A taxi is not cheap.
However, there is a tram stop just outside the hotel.
The hotel looks ghastly from the outside and needs renovation. It is surrounded by a horrible building site. The rooms were ok - nothing to write home about.
The restaurant was good.
Disappointing experience overall. This is not a five star hotel, despite the nice decor in the lobby and bar ... unless you consider the prices of the drinks in the mini-bar etc (3.95 E for a bottle of water)! The ONLY benefit is the proximity to the conference center. Even then, central Amsterdam is only a 15 minute commute by underground and is easily done. I relocated to the Marriott and was very pleased with my decision. Recommendation: stay at the Marriott!!!
Family visit to Amsterday
My family (2 kids plus 2 adults in room) and I visited Amsterday for a short weekend break. Stayed at the Holiday Inn in Amsterdam.
The rooms were well appointed and clean. The hotel was also nicely done. The location (near the RAI convention center) was a significant distance from the center of Amsterdam but the tram station was only a few hundred meters from the hotel.
My only complaint was the attrocious price for breakfast at the hotel restaurant (our plan did not include breakfast) and the size of the room (liveable very tight for 4 people, would not have wanted to stay for more than a few nights).
Good Hotel with easy access to trains and trams
A good hotel reasonably priced with a railroad and tram station just a block away for short easy trip into Amsterdam sites or to the airport.
Stayed on the executive floor which is quiet and nice with a great view. Food was on the expensive side. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The in room safes did not work on the 14th floor but there where laptop sized safety boxes available at the front desk. Felt safe in and around the hotel.
I was having trouble finding a hotel in Amsterdam that was fairly nice and had a reasonable price. I decided to check out Holiday Inn's main website to see if they offered any resonable rates on a hotel in Amsterdam. I came across the Holiday Inn Amsterdam.
We spent one night at the hotel in August. We found the hotel staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is conveniently located on a tram line that travels to downtown every few minutes, and next to a train station. It cost only 2 Euro to get to the airport from the hotel on the train - and it took only 9 minutes.
The rooms were clean, and breakfast very tasty and plentiful. We recommend it!
