Very nice and friendly staff. Ok hotel and cool theme. Good and safe system for roomkeys. The price was a bit high cause it was a really weird room. Not the cleanest bathroom. Good and cheap stay, but would not reccommend it for romatic getaways. Great location. Would not be staying there again I think. The TV was super small... More

Stayed in the suite for 2 nights and found it to be small but comfortable. It contained everything needed for our stay and in the cold weather the radiators were more than up to the task. The reception staff were all welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room and hotel were clean and interesting with all the quirky items and decor.... More

We stayed in this little gem for a short midweek stay in early November. What a lovely hotel! It is modelled on trains and all things railway, and it is really well presented. Our bedroom was at the front, with adequate space, with an en suite bathroom, nice powerful shower. The breakfast room is like a train dining carriage, and... More

I asked to change my room due to a only having a high window and was immediately shown another room by a member of staff which I enjoyed for 3 nights. The room was... More

Breakfast is simple but good and enough to start your day. The staff is very friendly and looking always to fulfill your needs...we went to Belgium one day very early... More

Let's start with the positves - the location is excellent and they had a 4 bed room / apartment for my family of 4. Unfortunetly my daughter was woken by a mouse in our room in the middle of the night which resulted in a sleepless night for my family and I. In the morning, anxious to give the hotel... More

Dear Simonthelocal, First of all we are sorry you were disappointed in our hotel. The A-Train Hotel was completely renovated in 2002 as a unique 3 star hotel. We have two buildings one from 1820 and the other one from late 1600. You're complaint, that you had a mouse in your room, is unfortunately true. It was most likely a... More

Great little hotel, very quirky with all it's train memorabilia. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, used their computer and printer free of charge, to check in on line and print boarding passes! Excellent location, short walk from the Central station for onwards travel to the airport, and in the centre for bars and shops. Big thumbs up! The only downside... More

Great location, friendly staff and breakfast was really nice. Air conditioning was only drawback but fan in room just about did the trick. Amsterdam itself was lovely and full of fun and interesting things to do.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
