Travelling to NH Amsterdam Centre Hotel from Schiphol

Hi, does anyone have any (cheap) recommendations on travelling to NH Amsterdam Centre from the airport?

It will be our first time in Amsterdam so I have no clue! Also Easyjet seem to want 110 pound for a shuttle service which I do not intend on paying lol

Thanks! :) :)

Get out of the bus and walk toward the very easy to see Marriott

When you get in front of the Marriott turn right and walk maybe 2 short blocks.

A 5-6 min walk at most.

John the NH is right next to the Marriott, on the same corner. 150m or so from the bus stop.

Ron, this is what happens when you get old. :-(

I have stayed weeks at the Nh Amsterdam center, and not all that long ago, but I gave great directions to the Hotel Crystal , just down the street, which I have stayed at a lot more.

Correct-----just across the street from the Marriott

Since seeing bus 197 recommended here a few years ago, I've not travelled from the airport to the city centre by any other means. It's so easy and convenient.

But, I always recommend to first time visitors that they use the train and tram combo.

That first time walking out of Centraal station is such a thrill. The noise, the crowds, the bicycles and trams flying everywhere.

It's easy catching the tram outside the station to get to Leidseplein and you get your first tantalising glimpse of the city centre as you ride along.

Bus 197 is great but you only really get to see the suburbs and a quick look at Museumplein.

And for any other public transport planning, www.9292.nl/en (and the smartphone app 9292) is very useful. You can also click to see maps of the bits you need to walk.

But you will also find that Amsterdam's center is very walkable so you may not need trams or buses much.

Have fun!

You can also take the train to Amsterdam Lelylaan and tram 1 which actually stops right outside the hotel.

Silverjet,

I so agree with you. When we lived in Amsterdam for that wonderful year whenever we had guests arrive we took the train to Centraal Station and took a picture in front of the station. It provides loads of initial excitement. We lived on Kalverstraat and would walk from the station. That was even more exciting. Miss it so much. Returning for a month this summer.
