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, safe, work desk, 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 €20,- 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.

I initially booked this hotel in late 2019 (before anyone knew of COVID) on hotels.com. I checked the non-refundable box for the lower rate and due to COVID I needed to reschedule. Hotels.com did this for me initially and then refused to do so after 1-2 rescheduled trips. I reached out to the hotel management directly and they agreed to honor my reservations. I have stayed at this location before and it is directly across from Central Station which is very convenient if you have a large suitcase and a backpack to carry. The staff here are very friendly and they offer a decent breakfast in the AM. Admittedly, the rooms tend to be on the smaller side, but if you are looking for a clean and safe place to park your stuff and hit Amsterdam, this is a great selection. I would, and will, stay here again.

This is my second stay at this hotel and they gave me a free upgrade !!! Bigger room, bathroom and bed than the last time I stayed. Only con was that it was in the front of the hotel and very noisey. Though I will put up with the noise having the bigger room. The location is across from Central Station which is what I wanted. Close to the area's I like to roam (my 5th time in Amsterdam). Clean rooms. Typical Dutch breakfast. Friendly, helpful and pleasant staff. I'll stay again at my next visit.

Stayed in another hotel nearby, but decided to extend our stay by another 5 days and came across ATrain Hotel. Great location - good price from reception which included breakfast and free hot drinks machine available in the restaurant, although I did have my travel kettle as we love a morning cuppa in our room before we face the world.

Perfect for a city break. Close to the Central station, 24 hour check in, luggage storage facility, good breakfast, free hot drinks, clean, friendly. Yes, the rooms are small, but what you would expect from an independently owned hotel. Good quirky train theme.
