This new hotel is situated at the edge of Amsterdam city centre.

Guests will find restaurants and shopping venues 3 km away and it is 5 km to the city centre. Schiphol Airport is a 10-minute drive from the hotel.
The Hotel can easily be reached by car from the ring road A10, as well
as by train (Sloterdijk train station), which makes it an ideal starting

take the A4 in the direction of Amsterdam. Take the A10 in the direction
of Zaandam and come off at exit S104. Turn right at the traffic lights,
then first left and then left again. Alternatively, take the bus 15 or

7.6My opinion about this hotel Best Western Blue TowerJan - 21-Mar-2016
We enjoyed nice four days getting to know Amsterdam. The accomodation has a good value for the costs and has good services, cleanlinessand facilities. The location isn\'t the best of and to the center it takes about 20 minutes, but it\'s quiet.

Very nice hotel for the price paid. Small bit out of the center but easily reachable by bus and lots of facilities near by.
-My opinion about this hotel Best Western Blue TowerDavid - 20-Nov-2015
I don\'t think this hotel merits its 4 Star rating.
The sort of facilities and quality it offers would be fine for 3 Stars.
Our room was spacious and fairly clean and comfortable, but lacked a few things I might have expected in a 4 Star room (minibar, fridge, safe, ironing board...). The aircon was a bit noisy. The door was very stiff to open - something that staff would have noticed every time they entered the room to clean it, so it ought to have been fixed by maintenance.
In the bathroom, the bath was very narrow and not at all comfortable to lie in. The shower was not particularly well designed, it was pretty much impossible to avoid water going all over the floor and windowsill. This and the poor ventilation meant there was a bit of black mould round the windows.
The buffet breakfast was adequate but not particularly special, again I thought it was more in the 3 star league than 4 star.
The hotel itself is in a 1970s brutalist concrete tower block, next to a suburban market square It\'s a few miles outside the tourist centre of Amsterdam, but Amsterdam\'s excellent public transport doesn\'t really make this a practical problem.
The price we paid was fairly cheap. I wouldn\'t grumble at all if we\'d paid this price knowing we were getting 3 star quality, but it was advertised as 4 star. Really, we would have preferred to spend more and book a genuine 4 star hotel.
8.6My opinion about this hotel Best Western Blue TowerFrancols - 29-Dec-2014
It is a great place to stay with fantastic friendly and helpful staff who make sure guests know their way around. Staff seem to enjoy working there. The location is not great but the transport system is 200m away makes up for it, you never have to wait more than 3 minutes for a tram or bus and they run in all directions. The shops around the hotel sell clothing at very reasonable prices.
The only problem we had was that we could hear noisy children and guests in the room next door and across the way from the passage.
