The Frommer is a very comfortable hotel far enough away from the city centre to be quiet and safe but close enough to tram services into the centre. The staff were very friendly and helpful and service was prompt and efficient.
A 20 minute stroll from hotel to Central Station is quite pleasant taking in plenty of shops and restaurants along the way.A four day city pass allows unlimited travel on the tram and bus services around the city so one can walk or ride.
The hotel lies at the back of the Prinzengracht (canal) which provides a very pleasant circular walk around the city canals. It is virtually impossible to get lost because the whole of the city is built in the form of a cart wheel - all spokes leading into the centre!
If one enjoys walking - after all that's what city breaks are for - this is a very desirable hotel. A bit pricey if booking direct but quite reasonable as a package

I did get lost; being my first time in Amsterdam, I could not figure out the maps on the sidewalk, I was also famished, and exhausted, not to mention completely on my own!!
Anyway, at 8.30 PM, 07/06/2014, I find The Novotel I had booked, and I am I told there are no rooms left. Great. Just when I thought my luck was completely out, a nice young Dutch man, who's name I cannot recall, informs me that I have been upgraded to a suit! Amazing news! I just wish I could remember his name. My boyfriend arrived, and we checked-out on the morning of the 09/06/2014.
In conclusion, the Hotel franchise, that is Novotel, couldn't have offered myself, or my boyfriend, a better stay.

Arrived during late evening.
Were able to get a freshly baked pizza to eat.
Friendly, helpful staff.
Clean foyer, elevator and corridor. Room very clean too.
Very comfortable bed and pillows.
Room was overlooking a busy street but no traffic sounds were heard.
Recommend visiting Hermitage Amsterdam - a short walk from the hotel.
Would book this hotel again.

Ibis City West is affordable and its location, while not in the heart of Amsterdam, is a few minutes' walk away from the bus stop. Taking the bus to the city takes 10-15mins, and around 5-10mins to get to a major train station.
Staff were friendly and helpful.

We were participating in the Amsterdam marathon and wanted to be near the airport and the Olympic stadium. We were delighted with our choice. The room was perfect, with both kettle and fridge; very handy for preparing the pre-race porridge. The hotel food was excellent and the staff very helpful in guiding us on public transport and taxis
