There aren’t many cities that fuse the past with the present quite like Amsterdam – historic canals, a buzzing art scene and beautiful gabled narrow townhouses are just a few of its charms. It’s a city that never has a shortage of things to do, whether it’s enjoying the laid-back ambience of a candlelit café, visiting the world-class Van Gogh Museum, admiring the Jordaan district, rifling through treasures at a local vintage market or visiting Dam Square.
Each area of Amsterdam has its own charm and unique character, and with easy access to the city centre and most of Amsterdam’s gems, Hotel2Stay provides a perfectly smart base for exploration. Situated near trendy Amsterdam-West, it sits a short journey from popular city hotspots like indoor food market Foodhallen, creative venue Westergasfabriek and the iconic Anne Frank House. With bike rental available at the hotel, you can discover the city like a true local, or perhaps take to the waters with a canal cruise.
Hotel2Stay has all the luxuries of a hotel with the intimacy of a home, with studio rooms showcasing a seamless fusion of comfort and urban lifestyle. After a day of exploration, sit back and enjoy the views from the hotel’s rooftop terrace, break a sweat in the gym or unwind in the sauna – but don’t forget to take care of your taste buds, whether you’re cooking up a storm in your studio’s very own kitchenette or trying out one of the excellent eateries dotted around the city.
How to Get There
We stayed for 5 nights in a Studio room. The staff at reception was friendly. We were on the first floor so we could only open the window a little bit because of the security bar. Our large window opened on an office building so we kept the drapes closed. It was otherwise quiet.
The location right by Station Sloterdijk was awesome, the train, tram, subway and bus systems were all available and we could get where we wanted to go in a very reasonable amount of time. The hotel reception has some transit tickets to sell as well as some tour tickets. Note, the reception only accepts credit cards, no cash.
We ate all our breakfasts in the room thanks to the kitchenette and some dinners too. We used the guest laundry room as well, which was useful.
Housekeeping was a bit erratic. They didn't come the first full day of our stay, they seemed to come in everyday after that. They did come in pretty late one day (5pm). Air conditioning worked ok but don't expect US-style a/c. The shower door leaked a little bit but nothing got soaked.
We arrived too late at night to take a train from the airport; nonetheless on our first exploration away from USA had no difficulty getting to Hotel2Stay; found friendly staff, clean rooms, delightful location. Next time we'll plan to stay longer at Hotel2Stay and enjoy this lovely city.
Highly recommend, clean, comfortable and very quiet. Good transport links to the airport and centre of Amsterdam.
We found the staff to be very friendly, polite and happy to help with anything we asked.
You do need to be aware that there is only 1 restaurant (nearby holiday express) and a couple of breakfast/lunch choices. There is a small convenience store and with the facilities available in the room you could self-cater to a certain point.
This hotel seems to be for people who want to do their own cooking (the room is more like a small flat, equipped with a kitchen), or want to go to the gym, or use the sauna.
If you need a quiet room and/or a comfortable bed, maybe you should consider staying somewhere else.
This is my third year coming to Hotel2stay stay. Very comfortable beds , quiet and easy access to transportation. Parking if needed . Bicycles available groceries close by . I will continue coming back . Just a nice place!
