... off we went for some rather interesting pizzas at the Pink Flamingo then headed to Dam square to kick-start the night. After walking around for what seemed like hours trying to find a lively but not too pricey bar we thankfully found some friendly english people who pointed us in the right direction. After having a couple of drinks ...

... go to the bathroom at night. The staff is calling us by name even before we check in and the service continues at the same high caliber. The Heineken family who own the hotel has overlooked nothing-from the (real) Old Masters on the walls to the iPad on the desk and the instantaneous wi-fi.

It is a good thing that Bob bought tickets last January. The Anne Frank House is the number one tourist attraction in Amsterdam; the line to get in stretches around the corner ...

... before its fateful journey and also where a lot of the famine ships left for The US, Canada and other places after the potato famine in the mid 1800s. They had a great food market on the foreshore and a wonderful museum and great pub food. We are becoming experts in 'pub grub'. We stayed for 4 nights in a Lovely cottage which enabled us to rest, catch up with family of friends and a little local exploring. A night north in Carlow before attending The Feast ...

Out for just the best Mexican that night at.... Also tried not to get killed by the bikes. This is the hierarchy: Bikes, Buses, People, Cars.

... around a barbed door frame! But we managed to make it out and had dinner by the canal (freezing!) before wandering around observing the night life. We settled for a club called Havana where we danced for hours ignoring the side glances from those around us - with our dancing I think we really stood out as being different. The next day we had a late start getting to Amsterdam... I swear UTC Taxis are on ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Qbic Hotel Amsterdam WTC

    Design & Original

    from

    Nous avons réservé sur le site internet de la chaine, et nous étions un peu intrigué par la chambre, car les vues présentées sont des images informatiques... A l'arrivée, après avoir cherché un peu l'entrée (un Samedi), nous sommes passés par le hall géant du WTC, et avons trouvé une entrée super design ! L'enregistrement se fait sur un ordinateur dans toutes les langues, et il y a 1 "gérant" qui peut nous aider sans problème.

    La chambre est presque conforme à l'image de synthèse; la différence ne réside qu'en 1 mur bkan - au lieu de la pieuvre sur l'image. Le lit est très confortable ! Pas de bruit extérieurs, notre baie vitrée donnait sur l'intérieur du bâtiment, et le week-end il n'y a personne. En plus, on n'est pas loin du P+R Olympich Stadium o\u nous avons laissé notre voiture pour 11€ / 2 jours, et avions nos vélos dans l'auto -> 5-10 minutes de l'hôtel.

    2 petits bémol: la TV LCD que l'on ne peut pas regarder du lit, car on est trop bas par rapport à l'écran -> image très sombre. Mais on est pas à Amsterdam pour regarder la TV ! . Et surtout la clim' qui n'est pas réglable, il faisait un peu frais dans la chambre, et surtout elle faisait un bruit de ventilation assez important - mais on a bien dormi quand même ! Le "gérant" nous a dit le lendemain matin que ce n'était pas normal, et qu'il allait faire réparer cela. Pour les suivants ? En tout cas, un hôtel que je conseille à tous les jeunes (ne serait ce que dans la tête) !

    Remarque: il n'y a pas de porte à la SDB / WC... Peut être à déconseiller aux jeunes couples.........

    Super excellent

    from

    superbe hotel , tout est très propre , très beau , et très confortable, endroit très calme , literie d ' excellente qualité ...facile d'accès ... LE MEILLEUR HOTEL DE TOUT AMSTERDAM !!! j' y retournerai sans hésiter !!! MERCI BEAUCOUP POUR TOUT ... A BIENTOT YASMINA

    Great place to stay and amazing Price and Staff!!!!

    from

    First things first, when we got to the WTC we were greeted by a very friendly employee. He helped us with Check-in and gave us more than enough information about the surrounding area. He explained the public transportatoin system, tourist attractions, and he gave us maps and flyers so we knew what to do and where to go. The theme of the hotel is very cool and relaxing. They had free internet on two computers in the lobby and many nice and comfortable chairs to sit on and relax while listening to music they have playing. The rooms were very cool and were very spacious. The not having a window in my room was fine, it kept the room dark after late nights out and the motto was fitting "Who needs a view when you are sleeping". The design and furniture of the room was very stylish and we felt comfortable in the room right away. The bathroom not having a door wasn't a big deal at all. It didn't seem to phase myself or my wife. The shower was very nice with a HUGE shower head showering water from directly above in a "Rainstorm" effect. We drove to the Qbic hotel and were very pleased to see that the parking garage had such good security and at the same time the employees willing to help. It was an absolute pleasure to stay there and whenever we go back to Amsterdam we will be staying there without a doubt. Our stay there was Excellent and would recommend it to anyone and everyone. The price of the hotel was very inexpensive compared to other hotels in Amsterdam.

    Alles was designhotel heißt muss nicht automatisch gut sein

    from

    Gut, ich gestehe, das Wort DESIGN-Hotel hat mich zum buchen verführt, da ich generell ein Interesse an Design und Innenraum-Gestaltung habe. Allerdings hätte ich ein bisschen mehr drüber nachdenken sollen, denn ausser dem Wort Design und dem moderaten Preis spricht leider nicht viel für dieses Hotel:

    -

    · das Hotel liegt mitten in einem Bürogebäude-Komplex! D. h. ich hab mich weniger gefühlt wie im Urlaub sondern wie mitten in der Arbeit, nur halt sehr, sehr deplaziert.

    · Die Fenster sind nicht zu öffnen! Und was noch schlimmer ist:

    · Die Vorhänge kann man auch nicht aufziehen, ausser man läßt sich gerne von den Rauchern im Hof oder den Angestellten im Büro gegenüber beobachten.

    · tja und ich weiss ja nicht, vielleicht bin ich altmodisch, aber ich steh auf Privatsphäre beim Klobesuch. Aber das ist bei dem kleinen Raum und nicht vorhandenen Türen nicht möglich.

    · unser Aufenthalt war 5 Tage. 5 Tage hat der Fernseher nicht wirklich funktioniert.

    · das Wasser in der Dusche rinnt nicht ab.

    · der Gang zu den Zimmern ist finster, grün ausgeleuchtet und beklemmend.

    · ob man die Graphiken im Zimmer an der Wand jetzt toll findet oder nicht ist Geschmackssache. Allerdings wirkt schwarz/weiss etwas leblos und drückend und überhaupt die Bildauswahl sehr willkürlich und ein bisschen lieblos.

    +

    · um fair zu sein: Mac und Pc mit gratis Internet-Anschluss sind in der Lobby vorhanden.

    Urban Experience

    from

    Qbic hotel is one of the new design hotels located in Amsterdam. The rooms are fantastic, spacious and everything feels so new! The bed is really comfortable. And all modern commodities are available. The only strange thing is the open toilet, i.e. the cube design.

    The service the hotel provides is self service. From checking in, breakfast & snacks to your departure. Bit strange at first, but actually great when u give in to the weirdness of it all. plus assistance is at hand when required.

    Connections to both Amsterdam city centre and Schiphol are good and quick, even at night.

    Overall it was pretty funny actually staying in the WTC- during the week coorperate business complex. I would definetly stay at a Qbic hotel again!

    Great value!

    from

    My partner and I stayed at the Qbic Amsterdam in July 2007. We arrived just six days after the hotel opened to guests. We paid 49 EUR/night for our three-day stay.

    The hotel is actually inside the WTC centre (an office building) and late-night access is provided by buzzing the security desk from the keypad outside. They didn't have their automated check-in station working yet, but the staff were very helpful in getting us our keys.

    The room itself was a good size, and had a lounge chair and lamp in addition to the Cubi unit. The Cubi itself consists of a queen-size bed, and small washroom with shower. There are also two chairs and a desk area, with an LCD TV over the bed. There was a safe in the room, but it wasn't attached to anything, so it seemed pointless to use it. The room was very clean, and well-designed. The bed was probably the most comfortable that I've ever slept in. An interesting tidbit, the washroom lacks a door, so be sure you're comfortable with your lodging companion...

    The location is some distance from the Amsterdam centre, but the area is well-served by rail, tram, and night-bus. It's about ten-minutes by tram to the Leidseplein.

    Overall, it's a great value if you can find it at a low price. The amount you'll save vs. staying in the centre will easily pay for a transit pass, as well as some nice meals.

    Worst of the worst - and that's being kind

    from

    Qbic was the first hotel of my two week tour of Amsterdam, Belgium, and Italy, and my companion and I were thoroughly excited to try out the new hotel.

    First problem - no air conditioning in the room. When asked if the air conditioner was not working we were told yes, but it was being worked on. After one night with no air, no ventilation, and no window in the room (to open or to provide light) we asked about the air again but were told it was fine - and that they couldn't make temperature adjustments just because one guest was too warm. No one would come see our room to see that it in fact had no ventilation.

    Qbic is a pre-pay hotel, so we were stuck. No member of the staff made an effort to visit our room to see that we were not whiny complainers, just people who want to breathe oxygen, and no one offered what really matters in the hospitality business (real or no) - an apology.

    After the second night sweating it out we were told that we should prop open our door with a suitcase to get air. Great tip for a budget hotel, right?

    Our door was unlocked and opened without knocking by a group of employees with clipboards twice while we were in the room - and there's no bathroom door - but guess what greets you when you open the main door? The toilet! That was a fun experience. [No apology]

    The third night we were moved to a room with air and a window - but the lights, television, and shower drain were all inoperable.

    There was no fresh food provided by vendors available in the vending machines as promised - there was no drinking water available anywhere in the hotel, and there was no free wireless connection as advertised.

    I've never had a worse stay even in a shared hostel with nine strangers. The attitude of the staff is that guests have pre-paid, therefore they have to deal with whatever they get.

    Qbic as a concept is interesting - but there are serious design flaws. If these issues were because the hotel was two weeks old, then an explanation should have been given, or a straight answer from some person in charge. I won't be returning, and I hope that anyone who reads this thinks seriously before booking at the Qbic.

    Love the concept!

    from

    Last week, I booked one night at the brand new Qbic Hotel, just because I was very curious about this new concept. It's a self-service hotel, which keeps the price low: for example I only paid 39 euro's for 1 night for a room for 2! The hotel looks great and very trendy, it may be a low-cost hotel but it has the feeling of a high-end hip hotel, brandnew and with all the stuff you need : Mac and PC computer in the lobby, free to use for the guests, all-over wireless internet, flatscreen in every room and comfortable beds. I particularly liked the colour light system : you can change the light in your room in many different colours, changing the athmosphere in a second from red hot to cool blue to flashy purple etc.

    However, some minor things still need to be adjusted, like the flatscreen tv is OK to view if you're sitting at the bar, but if you lay in the bed you are in a wrong viewing angle and the colours dissolve. Also the shower floor is completely straight, causing the shower water to stay on the floor iso running into the drain.

    The staff however is very friendly and helpfull and really open to your suggestions, so I trust this all will be amended soon. After all, they've just opened.

    In my opinion, this hotel is perfect for a short business travel or a weekend break if you don't want to stay in one of those old-fashioned hotels.

    Qbic offers perfect quality at a discount price

    from

    Wow!

    I paid €59 per night (all taxes included), and got to stay in a cool design hotel and sleep in a Hästens bed. That's what I call a good deal.

    The room was really cool. A unit with the bed, and bathroom connected put into the space. And even the wallpaper included information on a local bar and store in the city. Really handy and smart.

    Really for me Qbic offers amazing qualit and the best price in the market.

    It is not in the city center but in the World Trade Center. But with public transport it was easy to get into town. Just about 15mins...

    I am hooked. From here on I am at QBi whenever I go to Amsterdam...
