We had a pleasant stay in this hotel during our short vacation in amsterdam. It is located outside the city center and it takes about 20-25 minutes to reach the city by tram. Checking in ang checking out went fast. Our room was in the third floor. It was clean and nice. We didnt have a remarkable view outside our room but it did not matter because we spent almost all of our time outside the hotel. Breakfast was included in our booking. The food was alright. They had both warm and cold breakfast.... Read more

The hotel is situated in a part of town called "Bos en Lommer', which is certainly not the finest in Amsterdam. Parking is good as is shopping for food in the direct neighborhood. Beds are good, breakfast is ok, nothing special. Service is lousy and frontdesk made some serious mistakes at checking in and checking out. Prices are considerably lower than in the city center during the tourist season. Sometimes they have attractive deals and then you should consider to stay here. Best prices you wil... Read more

When we drew up outside this hotel my heart sank. For a four star hotel it had the look of a youth hostel. The entranceway was less than pleasing to the eye with a carpet stuck with bits of chewing gum and littered with cigarette ends (which remained there for the four days) and looked as though it had never seen a vacuum cleaner. The interior was more promising and the receptionists were helpful (except the rather flamboyant male we got lumbered with one night who asked in a diva-ish squeal, 'W... Read more

Nice staff and good room. Very noisy, we could hear everything outside and in the hallway. Location could be better. Breakfast was not that good, and the staff was very noisy when cleaning tabels and taking the plates to a open kitchen where they staked the plates with much noise. Otherwise fine hotel.

As I had already stayed here in February, I already had a love for this hotel, I came again 15-17 of June for a stag do. The staff was friendly upon arrival and was greeted by a receptionist I remember was working there the last time. I asked if there was any rooms available on the 10th floor as the room I had the last time 1010 was a reasonable size and the view was nice the floor was also quiet, which was perfect for me living in busy london. The Receptionist ever so kindly gave us room 100... Read more

The hotel was okay. It's fairly far out, and took a while to get into the centre of town. But the staff were nice enough, and the room was great. Not sure i'd call it a 4 star hotel though. Wasn't exactly what we were expecting for the price we paid, but pleasant enough.

We arrived at the hotel at about 19:30h and as we had dinner reservations, and we were late, we left the luggage of the 28 guests in your storage room. We came back at about 23:45 and when we went to get the luggage to take it to the rooms the recepcionist didn´t and wasn´t able to open the door to the storage room. His only answer was sorry. What is worse is that some of the 28 guests needed their medicine being the worst case a diabetic that needed his insulin shot. After arguing wit... Read more

A large multi-floor hotel. Rooms are large and have great views with all the facilities you would expect from a Best Western. But the furniture is dated and bulky and restricts movement in the room. The main disappointment was the breakfast. All the hot food - bacon, scrambled eggs, mushrooms, beans was almost stone cold. Other items very uninteresting. Staff there look bored and were unfriendly. A great disappointment having visited Best Westerns in the UK and Germany.

Hotel is situated about 20 minutes from city center with public transportation. Room was clean and nice, but on the second day I hung out the "please make room" sign at 8 o'clock in the morning, but when I returned at 17:00 no-one had serviced the room - when I notified the front desk they just made an excuse that they where very busy and had not had time to do it :(

We really enjoyed our staying at best western blue tower hotel. It's perfect hotel for those who want to stay only to sleep in clean and comfortable space. The neighborhood despite some comments we've seen before travelling seemed really safe and quiet. The hotel was comfortable and very clean. Staff was helpful and nice. Things to improve: sheets and curtains with some holes because of too much use. Decor a bit outdated but fine. Breakfast was unfortunately not included but there were a superma... Read more

Our party of three spent three nights at the BW Blue Tower. This hotel is located in the Bos en Lommer neighbourhood, which is some distance from the town. So, do not expect the big sights on your doorstep! We chose the place in part based on its distance from the airport and partly to be near the Hertz facility on Overtoom, where we had to pick up a car. Price, of course was important! It is an ethnically mixed area which gives it a somewhat exotic air and a greater variety of quick eating plac... Read more

I would definitely stay here again given the price and comfort of the room; the spaciousness and cleanliness. Though the hotel is about 18 min tram or bus ride; the tram and bus stops are barely 3 min away offering more than 3 lines to key tourist destinations in Amsterdam. Moreover, the staff at the reception was polite and helpful which is not common in Europe hotel industry.

Our room , which had a double bed was very comfortable, clean and quiet. The close vicinity to public transportation is the main reason we stayed at this hotel. It only takes 15 to 20 minutes by bus or tram to reach the centre of the city and only five minutes to reach the nearby Sloterdijk railway station. It only takes 15 minutes to travel by train to Schiphol Airport from the Sloterdijk railway station. The only disappointment was that no alcoholic beverages are available in the hotel incl...

Arrived home today having spent five nights here. I requested room 1007 it met all expectations , a big corner room, very clean and plenty of room for all three of us plus a wheelchair that the hotel arranged for me . The breakfast was adequate , the poor staff run off their feet but always had smiles on their faces and very welcoming. We had a brilliant break and will return .

Visited for four days with my boyfriend although outside city centre it's only a 20 minute bus/tram ride out hidden behind a market. Stayed in slotmeer twice and much prefer it away from the hustle and bustle of the main centre. Hotel is nice when you walk in large and open just like the pictures.

The staff were friendly and very efficient - I reported a problem with the shower and within 15 minutes it had been repaired. The room was very spacious and comfortable but was looking worn and ready for refurbishing. The walls and furniture were very scuffed.

We visited Amsterdam in early September 2016 and chose the Blue Tower because the room prices were much lower than in Centrum (the town centre) but it was only a 100 yard walk to trams to Dam Square (14) and the station (21). The trams are frequent, comfortable and fast and not too expensive. They catered well for my wife's wheelchair too. Also parking in the adjacent Q Park was only 12 euros for 24 hours compared with centrum parking at 50 euros for 24 hours. We chose an executive room which wa... Read more

The Best Western Blue Tower Hotel is located in the outskirts of Amsterdam. The surroundings are not so nice, hardly any restaurant or bar near the hotel. Quite a dead area in the evening. The hotel lies directly on the highway. There is no mini-bar, tea and instant coffee is not refilled daily (just once upon arrival) and the bikes to rent from the hotel are double as expensive as in a rent-a-bike shop. Breakfast is not worth 10 euro. All in all, the hotel is much too expensive for what it off... Read more

The hotel is very close to tram, bus and metro station. Our room was big and clean but there were a lot of old stains on the walls and on the carpet. The hallway was full of old and new door and there were construction works while we were there. The hair dryer was working poorly but at least the breakfast was good because there was a great choice of food. It's an okay hotel but definitely not four star.

Although a little out of town there is adequate transport at the end of the road (bus and tram) and walking distance to the metro station. The room was spacious and clean we had 4 beds and room to manoeuvre. We never sampled breakfast so can't comment on that. One thing that let it down was that it never had enough travel tickets when we wanted to purchase them other than that it served its purpose as a base for a busy few days in Amsterdam! Good value for money would reccomend!
