Htel Serviced Apartments Amstelveen Reviews
Home in a hotel Nov 09, 2013
HTel is a nice concept. It offers hotel like facilities in an apartment like building. HTel is focusing mainly on expats and that shows. The communication (signs, letters sent, etc.) inside the hotel is fully in English.
The building used to be a residential building with studios. These are now nicely converted to hotel rooms. All the rooms offer, apart from the standard items like a bed, wardrobes, a safe, TV, and a bathroom also extra facilities like: a small kitchen (with fridge, stove and microwave, but WITHOUT (!) a dishwasher), a couch area with a small sound system, and a table. The rooms are serviced only once a week. There are three types of rooms varying in surface and price.
The hotel offers free WiFi, as well as free cable internet, free parking, several activities for the guests, a free laundry, a very nice free Sauna and Steam bath, a small jet stream pool, and a free fitness center. A very nice little shopping Center with two super markets, cafeteria, butcher's shop, bakery, greengrocer, etc. is within 650 meters (0.4 mile) walking distance. Those who do not have a car can borrow a hotel bike. Parking is free on the hotel's own parking. The Metro (light rail) station train is just a 500-meter (0.3-mile) walk. It offers a direct and frequent connection with downtown Amsterdam.
To make the review complete I also list the items I liked less: The WiFi was very unreliable and most of the time agonizing slow, the elevators are also really slow, the swimming pool and sauna close early in the evening and in the weekend even before the evening, the heating in the room is very slow, so you have to keep it running during the night or be in a cold room during the day.
Despite these minor annoyances I had a very pleasant stay in the hotel. I would recommend it to anyone, except if internet is of vital importance.
