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
For a couple of evenings or a weekend it is a good idea to go there, but have in mind there are no windows in the rooms. Perfectly located next to a metro station, has 24/7 people on reception, some drinks and snacks for sale but too expensive at the reception. Rooms a interesting and clean. Would recommend it to a friend.
How much of a discount are you going to need to stay in a hotel where the loo is attached to the bed?
In the end it was a comfortable night's stay (I slept fine) but I guess that unless you are getting your room here for a really low rate you would probably be better off opting for a traditional hotel which supplies old fashioned things like windows, a bathroom door etc.
Please don't kid yourself that the absence of these things is "modern and chic". It is just silly.
Everything was perfect in this hotel.
The only thing I would change is that the toilet didn’t have a door, so there wasn’t privacy.
But the room was amazing, bed veeeeery big and comfortable and workers were very kind and nice with us all the time.
For sure I’ll come back to Qbic hotel if I’m back to Amsterdam in a future.
