    Strick gold with this one

    We liked the staff especially they were friendly helpful and always willing to assist. In future this is our goto hotel in Amsterdam

    There is nothing we did not like. An observation though was that the smokers made a,mess of the entrance with their butts. Not a fault of the hotel but maybe you can set up a dedicated smoking area away from the entrance

    Unwelcoming staff.

    The staff treats you as a burden. I felt really unwelcome there and I hope they are replaced by robots soon! The rooms are nice and clean.

    Very clean and comfortable. A good value for money. Location is the only downfall but tram stations are close and downtown Amsterdam in a 20 minute team ride

    Location lacked. Not many restaurants or shops around. Not a good place if you're looking to go out at night, trams close early and the only way back is through bus or Uber. Maybe a Best Western night bus would be worth the investment.

    The bed and furniture was decent.

    The location was in the middle of nowhere, quite far from the city center, staffs had often problem communicating in English, the interior was shady.

    It was clean and less noisy than in other hotels in the area. Area is another 'bonus' thing. Buses 64 and 69 in minutes will get you to Sloterdijk train station from which you can get to the Schiphol airport in 10 mins and it's easy to get to other cities as well from Sloterdijk. Downtown you can get by tram 7 or 14 or by bus 21. So this whole Slotermeelan area is awesome.

    Breakfast was rather poor, we ended up eating one kind of snack with bread and some coffee... I would suggest to have breakfast somewhere in town if you want to have some variety of choices.

    The location of this hotel was good because it was a very quiet location near a beautiful lake with good and easy transport to city center and central train station with excellent breakfast that was free.

    Very friendly service and was willing to print out my boarding passes if online booking was avaible with my airline. Provided anything I requested foir the room.

    Breakfast only, no other meals. Plus no bar facilities so not a full 3* hote and should not be advertised as such. In reality it is a Large B&B.Provision for Breakfast was inadequate for the no. Of guests leading to long delays in re-supply of food.
