Great location even though not in centre as short walk to Tram and around 8 minute journey to Dam Square. Friendly and effecient staff where nothing is too much trouble. Sky Lounge has a good vibe for a late night drink before bed! Would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone who isnt fussed about staying in the centre.
Had a fantastic 4 day stay here for my birthday. The staff were very friendly and accommodated all our requests. They upgraded our room on arrival and went out of their way to assist us with any questions and queries we had. They made our stay that much easier.
We had a great view from the 12th floor.
Beautiful setting in a more quiet part of Amsterdam but it was easy to get the tram from outside the hotel in to central Amsterdam and Leidesplein for all the bars and nightlife.
The bar on the 17th floor was really nice and the staff there were really nice. Got a few free shots on my birthday too.
All in all a great trip and definitely worth the money we paid!
I will definitely be coming back here on my next trip to Amsterdam!

At first we were not sure about the location as we thought it was a strange area to have this this type of hotel. After going into town we decided that we would rather do the bus journey to and from the hotel as it was so busy in the town centre. There is an excellent bus service, the number 69 from Schipol airport which stops almost outside the hotel and is only 2.80 euros, very much a bargain. We bought a 48 hour travel card at the reception desk which we paid 12 euros and can use as much as you like on the public transport system. We also used our travel card to take the bus back to the airport. It didn't take long to get to the centre of Amsterdam on the tram. We couldn't fault the hotel at all, the staff were very helpful and friendly, the room was spotless, the breakfast was very good. All in all the hotel was very good value for money.
Our quad room at the Blue Tower was great! It was the last two nights of our two-week trip and this hotel was comfortable and very clean and the staff was very helpful. It's a ways in to Amsterdam Centraal, but the distance gave us a chance to learn the tram system and see the city between the hotel and Centraal.
A word of caution if you happen to be taking a taxifrom the Amsterdam Sloterdijk (sp?) train station... This hotel is very near that train station (like 5 minutes), yet our driver charged us 20 Euro for the trip - about twice what the fair should have been. We were unable to see his meter during the trip. The hotel staff confirmed that it should have cost only about 10 Euro. They accurately quoted a price for a taxi from the hotel to the airport (which is quite a distance), so we were pleased with that.
6th visit to amsterdam, 1st time in this hotel. This hotel is very good, clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. This hotel is further out than others but only 10 mins walk from tram 17 that is a 25 minute journey to centraal. But this hotel is well worth being slightly out the way; I have stayed in many an uncomfortable hotel just because it is closer. I will Stay at new west inn again.
Loved our stay at this hotel--it was very clean, quiet and the staff were lovely. In addition, it was attached to Sloterdijk station. As there are only three train stops between Shiphol airport and Amsterdam Centraal station (and Sloterdijk is one of these)--this made the hotel very convenient for transport in and out of the city centre. I would definitely recommend!
The staff where extremely helpful polite & friendly. They directed us and guided us in every thing we asked. The room was brilliant. the nightstaff on reception was exceptional he went out of his way to get us good when the kitchen had closed. Best hotel we have ever stayed in!
The hotel's decor is modern and clean. There's a nice bar, a comfy smoking room, a vending machine with wine, beer, coke, water, crisps & chocolate. The computer is also good, as is the seating area in reception. The staff are some of the politest I have ever met in a hotel.
The rooms are basic, but also very clean and comfy. I can't comment on the Tv as I was too busy sightseeing to ever need it. The bed, however, was super comfortable and the tra and coffee facilities were useful.
Location wise, it was also brilliant, tram stop is a 5-7 min walk from the hotel and both the 1 and the 17 take you straight to centraal station via Dam square, and a 24hr pass is just €7.50.
This hotel earned 5 starts from me because it was the perfect, safest and comfiest base while my sister, brother in law and I had the best weekend of our lives.
I will be coming back to Amsterdam and I will definitely stay here again.
