Recent guest reviews

Located only 10 mins from Schiphol Airport, this hotel was perfect for our stay. We could choose from high end or fast food restaurants and walk to them, parking was free, beds were comfy, lots of water pressure, air conditioning. It was a good choice for us at the end of our vacation. We were tired, just wanted convenience, the shuttle was a nice bus, but we had to turn in our rental car so drove to the airport.

This was a perfect way to do Amsterdam. We arrived very early am and put our luggage in the hotel's lockers. The hotel has a great shuttle that picked us up from the airport and back again to get the train into Amsterdam Central. The staff were very friendly and the room was perfect for us.

The hotel is conveniently located close to the airport with regular shuttle service. It was perfect as we had an early morning flight and needed a quick ride to the airport. The staff were very helpful and polite.

We stayed here for a one night short layover in the end of our one month honeymoon. After a short free airport shuttle ride, we were greeted by Monique at the Front Desk and she gave us a vary memorable welcome. Not only she congratulated on our marriage status but upgraded us to a deluxe room type with a bobble bath which we enjoyed very much. She actively listened to what we were looking for and introduced all the facilities which would help us to refuel after a 30-day long trip. What a wonderful start! The newly renovated room was very spacious, quiet, and comfortable. We also love the in-door swimming pool, sauna and steam room of the Wellness. All the facilities were in good shape and very clean. As we pre-settled our tax upon check-in, we depart from the hotel efficiently with express check-out. After dropping key into the box, we got on the free shuttle and arrived the airport smoothly. We had a wonderful stay and will not hesitate a bit to stay here again once we return to the area. No matter what reason brings you here, look no further if you are looking for a hotel near by Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

My 2 sisters and I got a great room. Once we figured out the transportation from airport to hotel, to city center and back to hotel. What a gem! Great room, comfortable beds, very clean, easy access to hotel with hotel shuttle (15 mins). Get shuttle to airport and train to city center and back to airport. Then shuttle to hotel. Or you can pay for taxi to A'dam. Takes about 15-20 minutes to wait for taxi from hotel.

This is a nice hotel for connecting or a quick trip Amsterdam. Complementary airport bus shuttle and the restaurants next door make it easy to see Amsterdam or for staying close before a flight. Nice!

Big hotel with lots of people . Nice shuttle service to and from airport. Have now stayed in three types of rooms . I'd recommend newer, remodeled rooms . Nice breakfast especially if it's included in room rate

Very nice hotel for a short visit to Amsterdam. Nice shuttle bus offered. Very nice amenities in hotel.

Stayed for two and 1/2 weeks over the December-January holiday season. Staff remembered us from last year. While not in downtown, a tram going there is within 5-10 walking. rooms with best views are on the "ring" side; quietest (and slightly cheaper rooms) rooms are on the other side. Parking in open lot is included. Restaurant has excellent vol-au-vent (a Belgian specialty). reception and dining room renovated within the past year. Staff informs plans are in place to start on the rooms, which were already fine by me.

We arrived in Amsterdam by train after traveling through other European countries. We had three days to spend in Amsterdam before flying back to Chicago. We wanted to stay close to the airport because we had a lot of luggage and this hotel was just about the right place for us. The shuttle took us to the airport, from which we took the train to Amsterdam proper and back to the hotel after spending in the city center. I would recommend this hotel only if you are transiting through Schiphol or want to stay near the airport, because it does take time to commute to/from the city.

I was very pleased with every thing about this hotel until I saw all the black mold in the shower the next morning. I was glad I was leaving because it made me wonder about the cleanliness of everything else in the room. Very disappointed.

Very difficult front desk staff. Does not work smoothly with orbitz. DO NOT RECOMMEND!

Hotel is too big. No personal services. Host is not friendly because they are too busy. Avoid this hotel if you're looking for a cozy one.

I had a 17 hour layover and wanted a bath tub and a great bed. The bath tub was amazing with unlimited hot water and bath gel. The mattress and pillows were dreamy. The hotel had a lot of kids running in the halls but they quoted down by 10pm. Anyway, overall it was just what I needed plus free Wi-Fi and hotel shuttle.

Not sure why this is called "airport" hotel, except it offers a nice shuttle service to the terminal. Otherwise an expensive cab ride from the terminal on opposite side of freeway. No coffee/tea/water kettle/ice bucket in room. No face cloth; just bath towel/hand towel available. Room had only a shower, even though we selected tub & shower at booking. Twin beds were shoved together & could not be split away from each other for sleep privacy. Hallways still under renovation w/wallpaper missing/elevator under construction.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. It was a little way from the airport, but they offered a free shuttle that went every 20 min. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and inviting. The room we had was very spacious and had a nice deep soaking tub, which was a dream come true after an 8 hour flight and a chilly walk through rainy Amsterdam! Over all we were quite pleased with this hotel and would definitely stay here again. The only thing that was lacking was the internet, we were not able to connect to it.

This is a very large (and not that new) hotel. It is not that close to the airport. The shuttle is a big bus that stops outside the airport. There is a sign, but it is not that easy to find the stop. The hotel has a large dining room, but the least expensive entree was 17 Euro. It was a large meal, but sometimes one does not want that much to eat. Check-in was quick. It is true that the rooms still do not have facial tissues. Our room was almost out of toilet paper (and there was no spare roll anywhere), but when we called, someone brought 2 rolls right away. As in all European hotels, there are no wash cloths. You need to bring your own (or whatever you use to wash with). There were three towels each. The wi-fi worked well.

This is about the 6th visit to AMS and stay at this hotel. The hotel is a pleasant, comfortable hotel that has recently undergone a welcome renovation. The rooms are bright with lots of lights. The leisure/wellness center is good with an indoor pool, saunas, steam room and relaxing chairs. The airport shuttle is consistently on time. The morning crowds back to the airport are sometimes overwhelming but the huge shuttle bus accommodates them.

Reception is very professional. The food is excellent. Any question you have ask and it will be politely answered. Shuttle is a plus in ones coming and going from Schiphol.

Overall, the hotel was pretty good value for the money if you're staying overnight to catch an early flight to US. The location was somewhat in the middle of nowhere but that's alright if you're just spending the night and not expecting to do any sightseeing. Airport shuttle is a huge bonus!
