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
I never like to leave bad or negative reviews but honestly this hotel is really not worth staying at. It feels like a portable box room with a bed toilet and was basin. Only reason thia is not a 0 star review is that the bed had LED lights which was a good touch.
Thw twmpreture ia feeezing, floor really cold and this cant be controlled. No kettle or water in the room at all, location wise it seems to be in a business hub so no fast foos around juat ovwr priced salads.
Hotel staff werw friendly and done thwir job but just feel like this was very over priced for what you get.
€14 for breakfast is unbelievable, especially when you eat in the hotel lobby.
Pros = close to station so centraal is easy to get to.
Cons = too cold in rooms, no door.on toilet, over priced area, no wow factor
Located at a very covenient place, 2-minute walk from Amsterdam South Station, and convenient to take the train to Central Station. The hotel itself is clean, and it's quiet! Breakfast is good, can be better. I will defintely stay at Qbic again.
It was really cold and the room did not have a spare blanket, they should be avalible specially on Winter months, and I realy dont know why you require 200 characters when explanations can be given in less than 50
Ok hotel. Quite room with a bed and a bathroom (without any doors). But very basic. You get what you pay for and it is dead cheap- but you get nothing except for the basics. Location was great. Would have liked to be able to control the heat/cool in the room .
Last time I posted a review with a few minor things that needed improvement. Some of those were fixed now (didn't try all) - and - as long as you stay alone I guess the lack of a bathroom door is not a problem. Everything worked as expected, staff was nice (allowing me to focus on my stay there), breakfast was good. Ah, now that I remembered - could you add some liquid soap/shower gel of the type that is easier to wash off as well? (personal preference...)
