“Not close enough to airport but still recommend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for business meetings that were happening nearby. Can't speak to how convenient it is (or not) to get into the city - I didn't go. Would assume it would be better to be closer tho.

I was disappointed w the wait to get to the hotel. I passed on two other airport hotels because they were considerably more expensive and now I understand why. The Sheraton is literally connected to the airport. Really convenient. I had to wait for a shuttle for about 30 minutes. Felt like more. It was cold and I was tired after the long flight. I regretted not staying closer.

That said, once I got there it was fine. The trip is short - it's still close to the airport, just not as close as others and not walking distance. Takes about 5-10 minutes by shuttle or taxi.

I paid for an upgrade to a newer room w breakfast Included. It was 35 EUR more. I was too tired to decline the offer but it ends up the room was pretty nice. Upgrade includes free hardwire internet connection which is ridiculous because there is free wifi all over the hotel, which is great, and sufficient. No one uses a hardwire connection anymore, this is not a value add, but they pitch it as being part of the upgrade, which honeslty if more confusing than anything, especially after a red eye. Not a big deal but had to mention.

I only had time for breakfast one day but it was fine. Eggs and a decent spread overall. Staff was attentive. Restaurant and bar were both nice as well but pretty dead, and there is nothing else nearby. I wasn't there for fun so this was fine but by week's end I was bored.

I'd stay there again if I had similar needs (meetings near airport). I'd get the upgrade again. I'd take a taxi right upon arrival instead of waiting for the hotel shuttle (20 EUR or less).

Stayed there three times now and last one was not as good as before. In the positives that remain clean spacious rooms particularly if you get an upgraded room. Good location to the airport.

This time though the main restaurant was closed and the bar and remaining restaurant were completely understaffed so people waited long to order or get service. I got no attention so decided to just go up to my room and get room service instead. That fortunately was fast. In checkout early morning they couldn't process my credit card after 15" due to problems with their machine so resorted to cash due to not wanting delay before flight. Hoping this visit was anomaly.

If you are looking for an excellent hotel, then this is it!!! We stayed in the junior suite and had a great view towards the airport. The suite has two rooms. When you come into the suite you walk through the hallway, into the first room with a lounge, table with four chairs (where you can eat breakfast or dinner...), a flatscreen tv, there is a door to the bathroom with bath and an extra separate shower (quite big). when you walk into the other room there is a big comfortable hastings bed with 6 pillows, a huge desk with a big chair, where you can sit and work, a refrigerator, Nespresso coffeemaker, kettle for thee, and a minibar and of course a second flatscreen tv.
The suite is very spacious and comfortable. The room is cleaned extremely well by housekeeping and the room is quite (no noise from the outside).
The staff are friendly, professional and warm, and are very helpful.
The hotel is big and all areas are warm and homely. The fitness area is great and also has a sauna and steam room. The hotel has a shuttle bus (free service) to get you to and from Schiphol in 8-12 minutes. The entire trip from the hotel to Amsterdam centre is less then 30 minutes.
This hotel comes highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: The junior suite is excellent, but the other rooms in the hotel are also very nice!

All round excellent hotel.

Service was excellent. Rooms are very good, the dinner was magnificent. Breakfast as well, they have a machine where you throw oranges in and five seconds later you have fresh orange juice.

FYI it's a non-smoking hotel, but who cares really except the smokers..

I'll be back here next chance I get.

Was again travelling through Schipol on the back leg of our travels, and booked a stay for a 1 nite lay over. It`s reasonably close to the airport, with a free shuttle running regularily as well as frequently. The staff were friendly and efficient, and the restaurant was handy and convienient. The bed was the best we`ve had in alot of our recent travels...almost "cloud" like..and was greatly appreciated...
Highly recommended to any traveller travelling thru and/or on a short layover (due to location only)

I booked this hotel because of the earlier good experiences about the chain. I wanted a modern quiet room and decent breakfast. Also a free shuttle bus to the airport. Radisson Blue fulfilled my wishes well. They were also able to check us in the morning.

A breakfast was excellent, at last good variety of vegatables and crispy bacon. Only negative thing was opening hours of the gym. It was open a few hours during daytime.
