This is a lovely, quirky hotel. The staff are very welcoming and friendly too. Our room was very spacious and even had its own little patio/garden area. As the hotel is themed around trains and railways if you had an interest in these it would be a fantastic find. We especially liked the dining/breakfast seating which consisted of individual booths...

Get off the tube and you are a stones throw away - look straight across the road and you will see it. Breakfast is great, we actually took a sandwich out for lunch whilst we went on a boat trip ( which is also opposite the hotel back towards the station entrance ) Location wise, it's great for pubs, nightclubs,...

So firstly as you come out of central station you can see this hotel so there's no searching at all. The hop on hop off tour bus stops at the central station so again really convenient. Breakfast is continental. There's paper cups so nice to take an after breakfast drink to the room. There's a vending machine with soft drinks...

We stayed in 10 hotels on our trip and this had the best bed and pillows of any of them. Upon arrival we got to the hotel Very early around 6am due to our international Flight arrival. All the rooms were booked upon arrival so we could not go directly to our room after a very long tiring trip. This...

We stayed for one night at A-Train Hotel. We had booked a double room through Expedia.com. The location is very good, opposite the railway station, next to the shopping street, the canal cruises, the Dam Square ect. Many restaurants nearby. Our room was a double room with a double bed. The bed was not very wide. The room was clean...

I am staying in a triple right now, and we are very, very pleased with the accommodations. It is so convenient- literally across the canal from the City Center train station. The staff is incredibly warm and supportive. We were very happy to see an elevator to our floor. Triples are in the back of the hotel, and it is...

We stayed here for a couple of nights after catching the coach from the overnight ferry from Newcastle. This hotel is about 80 yards from coach drop off and pick up. The guy on reception was really helpful and spoke good English. Our room was right at the back of the hotel and apart from the noisy person upstairs, was...

It is a very convenient and fairly priced hotel. The service is friendly and the building itself is nicely themed. The sink in the bathroom was unbelievably small and its form made it difficult to wash even the face in the morning, but for a couple of days it's not a big deal.

This was my second visit to Amsterdam and I used this hotel again. Very well priced for what you get and location. Very convenient location which is a 5 minute walk away from the Amsterdam Cental train station and 5 to 10 minute walk away from the red light district. Breakfast was included which was great, basic but good, what...

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.

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.

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
