Stayed at Meininger Hotel last month with my friends for our 3 day stay in Amsterdam. The room was very nice and clean. Front desk staff were very accommodating, they entertained all of our queries. Meininger is a one stop place -- has its own bar, entertainment area. Hotel is walking distance from the Sloterdijk station and one station away...

After paying 200 euros each for three nights in a 7 bed dorm room i was very skeptical. I'm not a fan of hostels in the first place but definitely not for that price. Unfortunately, that was the cheapest we could find in amsterdam for bank holiday weekend. However, the place exceeded my expectations. On arrival the hotel lobby was...

We booked this hotel quite last minute, so were limited in options for a group of 7, however decided to book a room. We booked through a hostel booking site and were expecting a dormitory with a toilet attached. However we had a very pleasant surprise when we realised we had actually booked a hotel and had been given two...

Stayed here for two nights, just using the hotel for bed and shower! I would definitely book this hotel if I returned to Amsterdam. The room was perfect for our needs (although would love coffee in the room!!) and perfectly clean. The only downside is the distance from the hotel to Amsterdam Central.

MEININGERHotels, Leiter Front Office at MEININGER Hotel Amsterdam City West, responded to this review

Dear Beth-Marie, thank you very much for your very nice comments. We understand that having a coffee machine in the room could improve the stay, but security concerns force us to limit the number of electrical appliances in the bedrooms. We hope that you fulfill your promise and give us the chance to welcome you again at MEININGER Amsterdam!

The 4 bed room was brilliant for me and 3 friends, the hotel is very near to a train station which makes it perfect for travelling back and forth central Amsterdam. Staff were friendly on the whole. Reception was pretty busy but as long as you are patient it is a great place with a great atmosphere.

I booked a shared room with 6 other people. Little did I know that the rooms don't have enough beds for everyone staying in them. One of the beds was a couch and they didn't even provide a pillow or blanket for it. I had asked if I could pay to either be upgraded to a single room or switched...

The bad: No fridge or tea/coffee in the bedroom. The elevator is very slow to arrive.
