This hotel is located a short walk from Centraal Station, it is walking distance to almost all attractions. From the A-train we walked to Anne Frank house, the Rijkmuseum, Iamsterdam sign, sea palace and Sherlocked. We stayed here for two nights the staff were welcoming and the facilities were what you expect for the price. The room was very clean...

Couldn't be more central. We chose it because of its location in front of the central station, only a five minute walk from train to reception. All the staff were brilliant, helpful and very friendly. Our room was facing the station, maybe a little noisy for some but didn't worry us that much. Breakfast was good, not a lot of...

From the airport you can take a train to Amsterdam Central. The hotel is just 5 mins walk from the train station. So if you're travelling with families this is a hotel to choose because they have a family apartment. All the buses and trams are also nearby. Very close to shopping area and there are a lot of halal...

I returned to Amsterdam in October to celebrate my 64th birthday. The Atrain is the ONLY hotel I stay at when I return to Amsterdam. The staff and management are some of the most friendly people you`d want to meet and very helpful. The rooms are nice and clean and very relaxing. The breakfast buffet is very diverse with something...

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...

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....

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...

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
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.

The A-Train Hotel is a unique 3 star hotel with a train-theme. It is ideally located in front of the Central (Railway) Station, right in the beating heart of Amsterdam. Shopping areas, tourist attractions, pubs, restaurants, theaters, are all within walking distance. All 34 rooms are comfortably furnished and have modern bathrooms with a hair-drier and are equipped with radio, satellite TV with pay TV, safe, work desk, direct-dial telephone with wake-up system and FREE WIFI. The hotel has a lift, a luggage store room and 24 hours check in. An easy chair, coffee and tea making facilities, fridge and a great view off the Central Station are the extras in our 4 excellent 'First class rooms', also very suitable for business guests. For special occasions we have the 'Old Dutch Suite' with a small private garden/patio. Furthermore smoking and non-smoking rooms and 2 excellent family rooms. No two rooms are alike in our surprising train-themed hotel! All major public transport lines operate from the Central Station, only 15-20 minutes from Schiphol Airport, RAI and WTC. There is an (expensive) underground public parking opposite the A-Train Hotel. Cheap parking, from €10,- per 24 hours at 5 minutes walk from the hotel.. The A-Train Hotel is a cozy hotel, run by Jos and Erika Heijnsdijk and manager Ali Hassan and will be a comfortable place to stay during your tourist or business visit and will make you feel like "Home away from Home". We aim to please with an informal atmosphere and are looking forward to see you soon in our hotel. ... more   less
