Hi Linda,

It's the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek in West side of town. See


Luckily the hotels in that area generally are amongst the cheaper ones, use the map function of e.g. Expedia or Agoda to find ones closeby.

All the best,

Ah that is at the Slotervaartziekenhuis a place I know pretty well. It's a good hospital IME.

Use http://9292.nl/en to get public transport options. If you put Schiphol and Slotervaartziekenhuis as your start and end point.

From the airport you can take GVB bus 69 (perhaps get a GVB pass from the tourist info at the station for the duration of your stay or at least a few days). The site above will give you this and other options so it's your friend. There is also an app.

There are practically no hotels nearby. The West side Inn (formally the Hem hotel) and the Artemis are walking distance. Tram 2 serves this hospital so you could get a hotel along the route but a budget would be great.

Hope your partner is ok. If you need any thing else let us know.

Hi Linda,

The Antoni van Leeuwenhoek has a guesthouse for patients and or relatives. You can stay in one of their 15 rooms when they have availability, the standard price is 45 euro per night but in some cases the Insurance covers these expenses. This is their Dutch website: http://www.gast-huis.nl/ you can use Google Translate. You can call for availability 0031 203462020 ( GMT +1 between 08.00 and 16.00 hours ) Maybe your partner can ask the staff to help you arrange this.

Take care!
