Kanoa recommends the Teleport Hotel Amsterdam. For a cheap but satisfactory solution, among budget hotels, in our opinion it is the best. Located at 400 meters from Amsterdam Sloterdijk Train Station, Teleport Hotel offers modern studios, private parking, bicycle rental and free WiFi.

WestCord Art Hotel Amsterdam is a solution, in our opinion, really good; It is located a few minutes from the city center, and has a bus stop (48) right outside the entrance. The category is 4 stars, but prices are not prohibitive at all; There is an outdoor swimming pool, WiFi throughout and on-site parking
