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 …
Sampalimuk stayed here on Jun 21, 2006 during their trip titled: Sampalimuk's Great Adventure.
We started our day with a good breakfast including fried herrings, hamburgers and sausage salad.
We then went on a cruise through the Rhine Valley. It was beautiful although a little foggy. The scenery is lovely along with the castles.
We then left Germany and started our journey to Amsterdam. Reached Amsterdam later in the …
I hope you all had a great safe New Year. I wish you prosperity and health in 2009. I'm not much for resolutions but I have a few goals that I'd like to reach this year but mainly I would just like to be better. A better person, friend blah, blah, blah. Enough of the sappy stuff. Just make it a good year. This leg of the trip hasn't been as easy as …
Organisation day today. Weather was a bit 'inclement', so decided that it would be easier to decamp to a hotel for our last night in Amsterdam, save packing up the tents in the rain when we don't have the car. Michelle and the boys rode into town to return the bikes, and I put my bike in the back of the car. All packed up, checked into an Hotel …

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Amsterdam Centre
I booked a mini break for my boyfriends birthday as a package and had very little idea of the hotel before we arrived.
Perfect cheap hotel,perfect location
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
Most convenient location
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.
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
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.
