    What a Fab Hotel

    from

    I booked a mini break for my boyfriends birthday as a package and had very little idea of the hotel before we arrived.

    On arrival approx 11.30am we checked in and the staff informed us that the room would be ready in 1hrs time. During this time we left our luggage in a very secure room (only opened from behind reception) and had a few drinks in the bar.

    All of the staff within this hotel were extremely helpful and pleasant. We were provided with a map on arrival which detailed all of the major tourist attractions and places of intrest.

    When accessing the room we found it to be very clean, very tidy, well equipt and comfortable too. As our room was at the front of the hotel we did not hear anything from the train station or the trams.

    Included in our stay was breakfast, which was served buffet style, however there is a 24hr snack service including pizza's and toasted bagettes(which were really yummy!!)

    We wished we could have stayed longer as the atmosphere and service from the staff was top class, we intend to go back very soon for a longer stay.

    Amsterdam itself is beautiful, very relaxed and there is plenty to do. The canal boat tours are highly recommended, very informative and nice and relaxing.

    The only thing I would warn about is when crossing the road be very careful of cyclists that seem to come out of nowhere and travelling faster than most of the cars!!

    Perfect cheap hotel,perfect location

    from

    I really liked the hotel.Stayed on a business trip.Do no expect anything fancy from their rooms or bathrooms.They are both small and functional,that's it,but very clean.God how small the bathroom was...I had to leave the door open when i had bend on the sink to wash my faceas my torso would not fit straight.The staff was really helpful,wich was a pleasant surprise for a European's hotel staff.

    I had to get the train to Utrecht every morning,so the location nearby the central station was perfect.

    No problems here!

    from

    We had a night here and found the place to be quite decent.On early arrival we left our cases in the locked room and headed off for a pot of coffee!Came back ,got our rooms which were certainly adequate for our purposes,ie sleep, recovery ,passion.The room and bathroom were clean and tidy.Breakfast in the morning ,which was included in our deal was very nice and set us up well for the day.All in all, a decent place to stay, handy for all the sights - would return!

    Average for an Ibis ...

    from

    Having previously stayed repeatedly at the "Ibis Euston (station)" in London, I expected a fairly small but very clean hotel. As compared to that hotel, Ibis Central in Amsterdam was below my expectations.

    The room was very small and it was tough to fit myself, my friend and our luggage in it conveniently. The bathroom was really tiny and the shower did not really inspire in terms of hygiene (the walls and floor were grey of fungus).

    I booked the room with an internet/debit card which can only only be used for the amount of money that is in the account at the moment it is used. This is a usual practice for internet card transactions. Upon arrival I was told that my booking was canceled that morning because they checked my account and there was not enough money in it for the whole booking. They told me that that was standard practice and that we were lucky they had vacancies, otherwise we would be out in the streets looking for a place to stay!!!

    Other than the above, staff was helpful and accommodating, e.g. a certain morning we skiped breakfast and asked for just a cup of coffee. We were given a couple of croissants, courtesy of the kind waitress. The restaurant is fairly small considering the size of the hotel.

    The location is great, especially if you have a lot of luggage to carry. Right next to the centraal station (1/2 minute on foot, with luggage), and close to the busy central areas of Amsterdam, for shopping, touring around, etc ...

    There is a basket with free apples by the reception desk, which I though was nice thinking!

    I wouldn't mind staying there again, but I would look into other options first.

    Ibis is fantastic

    from

    My husband and i went to amsterdam in may and were booked into the ibis centre.The staff were very polite,very friendly and helpful,the hotel itself was spotless.No need for help with the luggage as theres a lift,rooms also were spotless,the only fault we found was that the hotel backed onto the railway station,which gave out announcements(in various languages of course!)all throughout the night,and you could feel the vibrations as the trains went past.Theres a little cafe/bar where you can relax in lovely surroundings,and they serve a buffet breakfast there in the mornings,there is also vending machines where you can purchase soft drinks or sweets for the kids.The hotel is right in the centre of amsterdam,the central station is just next door,with trams going past all the time and just in front is the canal bus.There is also access to the internet for a minimal charge,all in all a very pleasant stay and would certainly reccommend it,though be prepared to put up with the trains! which is okay if you`re a heavy sleeper(unlike me)would still go back again though!

    Not Bad for the Price

    from

    My husband and I stayed at The Ibis for one night on July 13th, 2005. We were in Enkhuizen (1 hr. north of Amsterdam) visiting hubbie's family for 4 days prior, and hadn't booked a hotel room in Amsterdam yet. We called the day before and were able to get a twin room facing the city for 99EUR. My husbands cousin (who works in Amsterdam) actually suggested this hotel since it was so close to Centraal Station and it would make our travel back to Schipol easier and cheaper.

    We were in Amsterdam for only one whole day. The staff were quite helpful suggesting what we should do - we ended up buying the Canal Bus Pass right there at the front desk (which was 16EUR). Which ended up being a great idea! It's a hop-on, hop-off tour of the city. We got to see pretty much what we wanted to in the time we had.

    Rooms were tight, but modernly furnished. Beds were super comfortable!! Shower worked well - good water pressure. Pretty much all you need for a place to stay. We didn't end up getting breakfast included with our room (an extra 13EUR EACH!), but we found a neat little diner just on the edge of the Red Light District called "American Diner". For 6 EUR each we had bacon & eggs, hashbrowns, toast, and OJ. It was very good too! Just to let you know, there are cheaper places to eat if you walk around and check things out.

    Overall, good place to stay.

    Good solid Hotel

    from

    I stayed in the Ibis hotel in June 2003, during a London/Amsterdam vacation. The hotel is conveniently located right next to Central station, in a safe area and within walking distance of many sights. The rooms are fairly roomy by European standards, and very clean, as are the public areas. The restaurant has fairly good food, and every night there was a set dinner special, that included three courses.

    The only problem I had was with the staff, which could be somewhat cold and unhelpful. I am a really easy customer, whether in a hotel, restaurant, etc., but this staff needed a lesson in how to listen and respond more politely. Of course, it might partly be a cultural thing. The Dutch are much less friendly than typical American service workers. I was also unable to receive a message left for me on my room phone, as the directions for use given by the staff were completely wrong. I eventually figured it out, but it was too late by then.

    All in all, I would recommend the Ibis for its very acceptable rooms and good location, but set aside your American notions of a smiling, helpful staff.

    Most convenient location

    from

    Stayed at Ibis next to train station. Came in from

    Paris. Hotel was convenient. The hotel personnel

    were courteous and helpful. The food was a little

    blah but that's just my opinion, I guess. Loved

    Amsterdam. Waiting to take my daughter to see

    Amsterdam after college graduation.

    Close to Station

    from

    I have stayed at the Ibis on many occasions, i have never had a problem, the rooms are standard bed, TV, shower, window. if you want a nice view from the hotel front looking over the city, get a room on the 6th floor or above as there is a bicycle multi - story park across the road and it blocks the views from the lower floors. The backside of the hotel overlooks the river and the railway station, which can be noisy if you leave the window open as Amsterdam Station is very busy. The hotel bar is nice, the staff are good. you have a room to leave your case if you want after check out, and prior to check in. The rooms have a safe with a digital lock at no extra charge. I have never yet made breakfast so i cant comment. Door entry is via a card system which also works the Lift. if as i am always out till well after midnight, you have to ring the door bell to gain entry from the road. Its a nice walk to Dam Square around a half mile. the RLD is about 1/4 mile away, the station is next door. all in all i would stay there again

    Typical Ibis - central location, cheap-ish, ordinary rooms

    from

    This hotel is typical of the Ibis experience. The location is central, next to the unappealing (but largely unthreatening) environs of Centraal Station. That is part of the problem in that some rooms overlook the railway, with consequent effects for the poorly sound-proofed rooms. Rooms themselves are reasonable, but less spotless than the Ibis norm. Communal areas have nothing to recommend them, and some bits feel not unlike a hostel. Breakfasts, as is often the case with Ibis hotels, are bland and the restaurant is best avoided. On the plus side, room pricing is consistently modest, but there are better deals for those on low budgets.

    Our KLM flight from Hong Kong to Amsterdam was pretty tedious. Around 12 hours on an old 747 Combi (front half passengers, rear half cargo).

    After reading some reviews of the cramped KLM seating we paid to upgrade to the exit row seats with extra legroom. The tradeoff was that every passenger suffering seating-induced leg cramps etc used …

    ... Brown Café’s”. These are traditional Dutch pubs given the name brown café because of the wooden floors and walls that have been stained brown thanks to all of the nicotine from centuries of smoking (non-smoking now which was nice). Most of these cafes can claim to have been in business since the 1700’s and it was very neat to have a quick beer in Café Hoppe while we were walking around that night.

    ... later in the day. Then we strolled around in the Vondelpark before checking out the museum. One can really learn a lot about Van Gogh, his painting techniques, and his evolution as a painter - this museum did a great job of explaining these details... in English!! It was a pretty awesome art museum for that reason.


    We headed back to our apartment to get our luggage, catch a bus to the Centraal train station, and catch our first bullet train to ...

It displayed reproductions of his best known works carefully restored and partly remastered to original colours. Gave a wonderful overview of his life through the art - for a very sad man his paintings are beautiful - apart from his work from an asylum where he spent some time.after a quick lunch we went to join the City Sights tour- which was delayed due ...
