“Good option outside city center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

There is a free shuttle from and to airport at bus stop2, just outside the arrival hall but you will have to call them to pick you up.
I loved my room at Alex, I don't think they are all like that but mine (suite 1) was big, clean, comfortable, with a huge TV, sofa, minibar and a super Jacuzzi on the bathroom.
The train station that leads to Amsterdam (just 2 stops away) is at a 15 minutes walk, it is ok if it is not raining. Very calm neighbourhood, you will find a bakery, supermarket and a few restaurants very close to the hotel. No breakfast included, just a coffee machine outside.
Staff was very nice.

Room Tip: Suite number 1 is the best!

We really liked our stay at Alex Rooms. The rooms are immaculate, great shower. Situated 10 mins on train to central station in Amsterdam this little town is perfect if you want to either visit the city but be somewhere quiet to relax, or if you are on a short visit and want to be within easy access to the airport (hotel provides free shuttle to and from) It's also great value ( and quality) compared to staying right in the city.

We found this place to be perfect! The price is amazing, the rooms are beautifully decorated and extremely clean, and the location was perfect - a very quiet town close to a metro station that will get you to Amsterdam center in about 15 mins. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it. The guy (I forget his name) went out of his way to give us amazing service...and the free shuttle is a great add-on.

We loved this guest house, which is a converted home right in the middle of town. We had a rental car and there was plenty of space to conveniently park. The rooms were tastefully decorated and very clean. The bathroom was the best we had anywhere in our 2 week tour in Europe. EXCELLENT spacious shower!! It was very easy to get to and from the airport. We had our car, but a shuttle service was also available. There was also a train stop right up the road to get to Amsterdam. It was about a 20 minute ride. We went in the evening and didn't have to worry about parking the car. The cherry on top of our visit was our host! One of the nicest, most helpful people you could meet. We did not have any type of device to access the internet. For our stay he let us borrow one of his old laptops so we could email our children. We traveled 2 weeks in Europe - this hotel was my personal #1.

it was just perfect! great shuttle service- upon arriving at the airport we rang the hotel directly and were picked up a mere twenty minutes later by our lovely hostess. She gave us lots of recommendations of where to go and places to see in Amsterdam, and she was always there to answer any questions. The hotel itself was lovely- we were given room 4 and it was everything we needed for our short stay it was spacious, clean and modern; and our terrace balcony added a nice touch. The train station was a small ten minute walk away, passing a supermarket and many shops and restaurants as you pass. It only cost 5euros for a return ticket to amsterdam centraal and the trains were great, very reliable and more importantly often! We completed this journey everyday for our entire visit and were pros by the end! getting to schipol airport by train was just as easy and effortless. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel- the room was great, lovely host, reasonable price and convenient location.Would recommend it to anyone- LOVED IT!

Free shuttle... If you ask about it. There is no notification sent via Expedia or directly (we booked rooms both ways).

17kms is NOT near the airport. However, the hotel IS on the flight path.

It's not a hotel. Simply a converted house. Nice rooms but no ac or elevator. Stairs are dangerously steep and narrow for large, heavy bags.

CASH ONLY. This is not specified on the booking anywhere. Another reason to not call this a hotel.

Collected by free "shuttle" at airport and taken to hotel. Room was excellent and suited perfectly.
We travelled to Amsterdam by local train (6 euro return for two of us at discount rate for pensioners). We also went to Haarlem and Zandvoort from same station for similar cost. The Rijksmuseum was superb on the Tuesday but the Van Gogh Museum on Thursday was overcrowded and uncomfortable. We ate locally in Zwanenburg which has Dutch, Italian and Chinese restaurants but we didn't notice any local bars. We had to pay for return shuttle to Airport as only available for free until 11.30am on day of departure. This cost 25 euro. Only other option was train to Amsterdam and then on to Airport but not practical as you have to carry your bags about.
Would consider stopping at Alex Rooms again as you get a more Dutch feel than staying in central Amsterdam

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room as you get a large balcony. Downstairs rooms have access to the garden bu...
