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
This hotel is in a great location if you want easy access to central Amsterdam without actually staying in the centre of town. It’s also 8 mins away from the airport on the train.
I say it’s best for solo travellers because of the bathrooms. They are fully open! No doors or any privacy. No the greatest when you want to use the toilet if you know what I mean...
Overall it’s a cool quirky hotel and it’s in a great location for getting around.
The staff members at the Qbic Hotel were great; service was excellent. The room itself was clean and orderly, but a little quirky. It could just be that we (from the United States) aren't used to that style of hotel. The bathroom was open instead of being enclosed. Both the bed and the bathroom are elevated from the room floor. There was no shower door, so some water from the shower splashed out onto the bathroom floor. But all the bathroom fixtures worked very well. The room didn't have a regular chair, instead having one recliner and two high stools that went by a small counter connected to the head of the bed. There was no closet, but there was a coat rack.
it was a very pleasant stay, nice room - very different and quirky! Very clean and i would recommend staying here. Close to station and quick to the city center. Staff were friendly and accommodating.
