Area description
Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, has its origins in the 12th Century. It was granted city rights in 1300. It made its mark as a trading post, and the city's ever present water had a major part in this development. Amsterdam is also known for its beautiful historic centre with its charming canals and plentiful shopping streets. Amsterdam has a number of special museums, and other interesting sights of international fame.

Modern Hotel

I spent 5nights in BW Blue Tower Ams. The first 3nights was ok.The 4th night onwards, my room was not clean. I had made several complaint to receptionist. No action was taken by housekeeping personel. However, the receptionist had help to replace some towel/shower gel to me. Overall, the pricing of the hotel is ok but service needs to be improved. Compare to other BW hotels that I stay before, BW Blue Tower did not give me a good impression on service.

No-No

This hotel is in the middle of nowhere. It is extremely difficult to locate and be prepared to travel there by taxi. Far away from all major attractions. For this price it is definitely not worth it. Stay away.

average

The staff were very friendly and helpful, however the hotel itself was a litle too far from the centre of Amsterdam. Also we were expecting a double bed but got 2 singles and the bath seemed to be put in the wrong way round so you couldnt lie in it comfortably. Overall the hotel was average and nothing to really complain about.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Buy OV Chipcards for travelling as it works out cheaper, you can use it as many times as you like a day depending on which time length you buy.

This hotel is a little away from

This hotel is a little away from the centre but the links are excellent. There is a secure car park and it is close to major routes making it ideal for business. The restaurant was quite good, actually a surprise. Staff were all very helpful. Will stay again especially for convenience en-route to business meetings.

Secured parking closed at 10 PM.

Secured parking closed at 10 PM. After 10 PM no entrance in the parking possible. It's unacceptable. Only for this reason I rate "very bad" for facilities & service.

The food was amazing, hotel clean, and very convenient to ride the tram to city center. Service was poor. Our lights went out, flipped breaker, and we were in the dark for over an hour until they came and fixed it.

Super hotel. Only criticisms

Super hotel. Only criticisms were poor lighting in the rooms and the room was very hot. We couldn't get the air conditioning to cool it even when on lowest setting so turned the control off when we got in one night but it took a long time to cool. Unfortunately, whatever setting we had used, the staff put it back up during the day so it was hot again when we got in. These are minor criticisms of an excellent hotel.
