- The hotel's space-age design
- Perusing Amsterdam’s pretty canals and parks
What To Know

- Free WiFi
Whether it’s a heady café and club culture, world-class museums or romantic canal-side strolls you’re seeking, Amsterdam has it all. The award-winning Qbic hotel group is all about affordable and chic accommodations integrated within the local community – “Hotels shouldn’t shut life out” is its very mantra.
The local community is within easy reach here, too. In fact, it’s right outside your door. Situated among the sleek, modern buildings of the city’s Zuid district, right next to the World Trade Center, the hotel puts Amsterdam’s buzz practically at your doorstep. A quick jaunt on tram number five will take you to the city center in just ten minutes.
Qbic’s rooms tick all the basics off with style. Simple and spotless, with blonde wood floors and white linens, they boast a stylish, cube-like design that maximizes space. Look out for Philippe Starck design elements in the state-of-the-art bathrooms.
Qbic Hotel Amsterdam’s informal atmosphere means you can have your complimentary continental breakfast wherever you like: in the buzzy communal lounge and bar, your room or the nearby park. Vending machines in the lobby offer snacks and drinks around the clock – ideal after a night out on the town.
In the Dutch capital, all things picturesque and historic blend with modern, urban energy. Visit the galleries to admire masterpieces by Van Gogh and Rembrandt, take a boat trip along the famous waterways, or get swept up in the hedonistic nightlife and party until dawn. Staying in the Zuid district, near the iconic World Trade Center building, you’ll be able to experience a modern, thriving part of the city. There are plenty of great restaurants nearby, alongside handy local shops, a supermarket and book store.
How to Get There
Small rooms but everything you need, and lots of colour. Friendly staff, a do it yourself atmosphere, and very close to transit - both the train and the tram. The optional breakfast was very good.
We wanted an affordable hotel close to the RAI Conference Center and that's what we got.
It is very close to the train station and the trams. At least 6 restaurants in the building.
The location of Qbic hotel is lovely, as it's close to the airport as well as easy to get to centre of Amsterdam. The rooms have a modern, quirky feel and are really comfortable. The staff at the reception desk are very knowledgeable and keen to help, so I was very impressed. I would definitely stay here again.
It's not a resort, it's an efficient place to sleep. Near train/metro station and business center. My room had no windows but was pleasant, with a work counter and a chaise lounge and plenty of light. Toilet has no wall/door or anything so you better be comfortable with your roommate. My only complaint is the doors offer zero insulation from the noise in the corridor. I could almost hear eyelashes clapping as people walked by.
We stayed for some days at the Qbic and we were quite pleased with the hotel. The staff was always great and helped us booking tickets for museums and recommended things to do around Amsterdam. The room was modern, comfortable and was always cleaned up. My only complaint is the lack of doors to our bathroom in our room.
Slept in a room with no windows, it felt like sleeping in a coffin. Room wasn’t cleaned properly and there where no doors next to the toilet.
Positive: Staff was very nice, particularly the nightmanager on duty.
