    Very good

    Friendly staff. Efficient office. It was right at the rail station as we wanted A very early breakfast was organised for us as we departed before 6.00am

    The room was basic but a little smaller than I had expected, but as it was a very short stop it was not a problem

    Superb

    The Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean and beds were confortable.

    Our hotel room had a "quaint" feel with the bathroom on one level and beds upstairs in a loft area. Not all rooms in the Hotel are like that so I would request a different room next time.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Unusual theming with train memorabilia all over the place. The Old Dutch Suite was an Oasis in the city.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Convenient and comfortable with a good train-themed reception and breakfast room.

    tiled floor in bathroom was very cold. No tea/cofee making facilities in rooms.

    Superb

    Location was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. We only stayed one night but it was close to everything and our room was very comfortable and the kids really enjoyed having the upstairs to themselves.

    Superb

    Breakfast was good. Accommodations were certainly adequate and we especially enjoyed the proximity to Central Station and the numerous restaurant opportunities.

    Insulation for sound could be better. We had some loud girls in adjacent room one night and appreciated the hotel's quick and effective response. We would certainly come back to the A Train.

    Fabulous

    This hotel was perfect for a city break to Amsterdam. Its location next to Central Station makes it ideal for transport links, to and from the Airport. The staff are very friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable.

    Fabulous

    The location - right opposite the beautiful Central Station and beside the canal boat stations and all the Tram lines start and stop there. You get a metro costing 4.30 euros from Schiphol Airport to Central Station and you arrive in about 15 minutes in great comfort. No need for taxis at all. You can get tickets for Keukenhof etc. at the station. Also trains to everywhere start there. When the volcano ash came back I got tickets to Brussels/ Eurostar trains there. Dont miss visiting the 1E Klas cafe on Platform 2. Beautiful place! There is also a lovely antique pub on the corner near the hotel which I loved called Cafe Karpershoek. Always drink tap water in Amsterdam - its the best in Europe.

    I had a double room which was very small (not big enough for 2 large people) and the bathroom floor and counter were in need of a revamp, though the shower itself was excellent. Also the bedspreads were ancient (patched) and should be thrown out.

    Good

    Reception staff are extremely cordial. Braek fast was ok.Location near to Central station for commuting to other places very convenient.

    Room tariff can be lower then present charges.Scope for improvement room furnishing.

    Fabulous

    Very close to the transportation and town centre

    It's not for us but we heard the girl who was checking out while we were waiting to check in, has been charged just because she watched TV!! I never experienced it that watching TV is not include in the room price. However, it might be a misunderstanding of us and it's not a big deal. The overall service of the hotel was good.

    Superb

    Great hotel all round! Location fantastic and close to everything. Directly opposite Central Station. Staff very helpful and friendly. Room very clean and a comfortable bed. Good shower (the double head slightly fiddly at first) and hairdryer! Had a quiet room at the back of the hotel. Plenty of soap, fresh towels and room serviced daily (which was not expected). Left our luggage in a secure room so that we could carry on sightseeing before having to leave the city. I would highly recommend staying here and would do so again.

    For the light/late sleeper, a little noise from the above room, which is expected anywhere, but not as bad as most other places! Some people may prefer a different (cooked) breakfast, but personally enjoyed it. No bar, but vending machine available for soft drinks/snacks.

    Guest rating

    Good location, near city centre and the train station.

    All parts of the hotel is non-smoking but all rooms and corridors stank of cigarette smoke! Very hard to get a good night sleeps because of this. 130 Euro is overprice for this hotel.

    Superb

    2nd time visited and ideal base to see Amsterdam, close proximity to station, shops/bars etc. Rooms clean and comfortable, if somewhat small, but great for short breaks. Continental breakfast more than adequate

    First visit, payment was made on arrival at the hotel, this time payment was taken on booking and prior to arrival and also subject to non-refund, if cancelled. One of our party was unable to travel and lost their payment in spite of advising hotel days before arrival. This practice needs to be made more clear when booking

    Central location

    was overcharged by 20 euros per night over the Booked.net price. Think they were cashing in on us unfortunate people stranded in Europe

  • 5.4
    Guest rating

    Central location near to railway station

    were charged 20euros per night more than online price probably due to trying to get as much as possible out of guests due to volcano disruptions. took it up with hotel but they wouldn't budge.
