STRATEGIC POINT HOTEL
We stayed there for 3 days/nights.
The main advantage of this hotel is their position.
Just 5 minutes walk from the Train Station. Right opposite.
All trams, metro, and many bus lines start or passing from the Trian Station, even Canal Boat Cruises.
Of course the train station areas ussually are a bit suspicious, as well as begars, homeless, etc. Not something very dangerous, but always keep an eye around. Never know...
STAFF friendly and helpfull enough.
ROOMS are OK.
All buildings in this city are narrow, but room size was acceptable. Clean, cozy bed and pillows, powerfull heating system, also Colc air A/C, in room safebox, linen, towels, Hair dryer, Coffee tea facilities, TV, Radio, all works well
BREAKFAST has a good and wide selection of hot and cold food. Good coffee and tea. GOOD QUALITY. Only minus was the quantities in meats, eggs, bacon. The served it in small qantity so quckly runs out and ask staf and wait again to bring more.
Unique Quality: Not something unique to report.
YES I recomend it to stay.
Directions: Go out of the station
Cross the Prins Hendrikkade street and
Walk 200m to the right.
The hotel is in front of you.
I Want to go Back !
stayed here july 2007 for 5 days, Great hotel, our luggage was three days late and the hotel staff couldn't have done more to help us try and track it down. If your looking for a hotel with; A pool, A great View or for people with disabilities this hotel isn't for you !Heres a rundown of the hotel;
Our room was on the ground floor behind reception
Usual Necessities (hairdrier, Telephone and radio alarmclock)
Mini Bar (quite expensive)
24hr room service ( Reasonably priced considering i phoned them at 4am for a cheese burger)
Sauna (didn't try it out though)
Breakfast (not included in price, 9.50 Euros extra but not worth it from what i heard from other guests)
As usual in Amsterdam the cost of hotels ain't that cheap we paid 600 euro's (in high season) for a twin room excluding tourist tax (5%), two great coffee shops right next door "Rastababy" and "Rokery" the last one being highly recommended, all in all was a great stay and would recommend to others
Directions: Opposite the giant multistorey bicycle park ! lol
Near Central Station
This was a good hotel. Excellent location on the Nieuwe Zijde. The rooms were clean and has a nice bathroom. But there is a 20 Euro deposit for the TV remote (TV has no buttons). Friendly and helpful staff.
Unique Quality: Directly across from Central Station but not too noisy. Shopping around the corner.
Directions: Nieuwe Zijde
