It's a really convenient hotel as it's right beside the train station and one stop and your in Amsterdam. It's also so much cheaper to stay in Sloterdijk than it was to stay somewhere central in Amsterdam and we didn't mind the 5-10 minute commute. Hotel rooms are well decorated, spacious and have everything you are looking for really. Definitely... More

Stayed in a 3 bed room for 3 nights. A little small, large bathroom but only a shower. Done the job. Bar is open till 3am. €15 for 2 vodka red bulls though :/ right at the train station (slotter dijke). 1 stop away from Amsterdam central which is only about 10mins away. For a stop over it's perfect.

I just spent 4 nights at the Meininger and I liked it a lot, for many reasons: 1. It’s a mix of hostel and hotel, which means that, if you are travelling with a group, everyone will find accommodation for a price they can afford. From mixed dorms to deluxe room for two, the hotel comprises everything anyone can need.... More

Stayed here with 3 friends last month for 5 days. The hotel itself was very modern and clean. The rooms were spotless and the beds extremely comfortable! We paid around 38 euro each per night and it was very much so worth it. Best part about the hotel is that it is located 1 minute away from the tram station... More

Although it is classed as a hostel and not really a ‘Hotel’ there were six people in our party, so we all fitted in a group room by ourselves. All hotel areas and the room were very clean and tidy.

Stayed at this hostel for 3 days while traveling around Europe. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Although not in the centre of Amsterdam it is only one train stop away from Amsterdam Central, only costing €3/4.
