“Close to Schiphol airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Nice hotel with good price-value balance. Friendly staff. Rooms are spacious. Breakfast buffet is good. Hotel close to the airport means alos noise of airplanes flying on and off. Car parking is not secured. WIFI available. Small but cosy bar with possibility to eat a small meal. Nice restaurant with quality food in the backyard at walking distance of 150 m.

Stayed here with a large group on a recent congress. The staff really do make this place. It is a bit out the back and beyond but compared to staying in the centre the rooms are huge! Separate toilet, shower, bath, etc. cleaned well on a daily basis without fail. The restaurant only serves breakfast but next door is a lovely restaurant, tennis club and bowling alley. Good transport links. Breakfast had many options.. Not so sure myself on the pre prepared omelettes but they will do fresh food if you ask.

Good business hotel that is very convenient to the nearby business locations. The staff is a real delight and more then made up for the well worn room. Great service all around.

Many excellent food options nearby, including a short walk into a quaint city center. Would recommend avoiding the famous Aan De Poel and they are very rude.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel as part of our Cosmos tour. It looks a little dated from the outside of the building but it looks nice inside. The location is a little way from downtown Amsterdam but it is manageable. The room was nice and big which we both enjoyed. The breakfast was great as well as the service.

A squared block from the outside, squared personnel inside. To no surprise since this is quite common in this country.Good beds, good rooms, often too hot in winter, correct breakfast, limited choice on dinner. Everything essential for a business hotel. What else can you expect in the middle of an industrial area. At lest the bus to downtown Amsterdam has a stop just across the street.

Stayed in a tripple room for one night. Bus service into Amsterdam city takes a while but runs often. Room towards the street makes it hard to sleep with open window (car noise the whole night). Breakfast just medium. A bit more selection of everything would help. But all in all a good stay.

I stayed at the Grand for a business trip and while it is located quite a way from Amsterdam it was functional and clean. Close to Schipol I decided to take the bus to the hotel. This was a 35 minute trip but the bus stop is right out the front of the Hotel. This is the same route that will take you straight into Amsterdam about 40 minutes trip. So it's very convenient if you don't want to spend your time in cabs.
The hotel itself while dated (think circa 1979), is clean and the staff very friendly. The restaurant is around the corner from the Hotel so it can be a dash if raining but the food was great and once again the service staff very good. One of the advantages in staying in a family owned hotel is that they will pay more attention to their guests. The rooms are simple but large, clean and comfortable and it certainly passed my litmus test for hot water and water pressure. Breakfast is a no frills affair with a choice of cereal, fruit, breads and cheese (of course it is Holland after-all). While not a hotel I would stay in if I needed to be closer to Amsterdam (our office is a quick walk away hence the stay there) I would thoroughly recommend it for those who want to be a bit out of the city and are not fussed about the luxury Hotel experience. Overall I enjoyed the 3 nights I stayed there but I 3 nights was enough.
Reasonably priced, and with the bus so close by there are no impediments to getting into the city. A friendly staff and atmosphere the Grand Hotel Amstelveen should at least be considered.
