“Great stopover if you have an early flight!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Lovely hotel, comfortable rooms, nice breakfast and bar. Nice outside patio for lunching, only downside is the late night volleyball games right outside the back side of the hotel until 11pm. Shuttle to Schiphol is a plus. Worth the money! I'd stay here again!

Booked here as we wanted to go to the Aalsmeer flower auction so we spent 3 nights here. The rooms are clean, windows open wide for fresh air. Nice restaurant downstairs, we had breakfast there in the breakfast room. You are near the airport, and the planes do fly over, so noisy..BUT was surprisingly quiet when sleeping. There is a place to rent bikes just down the road, ask at the desk. Well worth it to rent one and explore the lake. Aalsmeer a good place to unwind after travelling from overseas.

Stayed here on a weeknight with a work colleague, our flight was delayed so we arrived around 11.30pm, we booked direct through Easyjet and good that they had kept the room for us.
Room was great, clean comfortable functional etc, nicely laid out and plenty of spacer, comfy bed etc.
Popped into the bar for a quick beer after a long day and when we tried to order a second drink we were told the bar was now closed. Apparently it closes at 12 (it was only 11.55 but I think they had cashed up already) which I thought was really bad customer service as they should have asked if we wanted anything else before the bar closed.
Breakfast the next morning was OK, reasonable selection although it was a bit difficult to work out where the tea and coffee an cups etc were. The kitchen staff brought these out for us eventually but it took a while and, as breakfast starts 6.30and and we were in a hurry to be out for 7am to drive to Maastricht, we didn't really get anything much to eat or drink for our €14.50.
When checking out there was a lot of confusion over the bill and we were charged €100 more than the easyjet confirmation quoted. We had 2 rooms for 2 people and the hotel assumed there were 4 people and their system got confused. We ended up paying €50 more than we expected and as we were already late leaving due to trying to get some breakfast, we didn't really have the time to argue.
All in all the hotel was OK, some nice 4* elements but I don't think I would rush back here.

Stayed one night after a 23 hour flight. Great bed, crisp linen, good shower, lovely staff and a beautiful green and restful village atmosphere to stretch our legs in. The bar and snacks were good but the breakfast was superb! Thank you Hotel Chariot for exceeding my expectations on every level and for only a small tariff.

Stayed here the night before catching a flight out of Schiphol. Ten minutes from the airport by 24/7 shuttle. Shuttle charge is 20 Eur per room for a round trip....good value. Hotel on a quiet semi residential street in a small village. Clean, comfortable and pleasant rooms. Nice bar/terrace and restaurant. Had an excellent meal at the hotel. Good value and quality.

Booked a stay at Chariot as our flight would depart at 6.15am the next morning. On arriving they mentioned we didn't book the park-sleep-fly combination, so we would have to pay EUR 20,- for the shuttle service or upgrade to park-sleep-fly to get the shuttle included (upgrade was EUR 10,-, so easy choice). Room was excellent, probably the best room ever for only 3,5 hours of sleep. Shuttle service to the airport runs every 30 minutes and brought us to the airport in +/- 15 minutes. On return we called the shuttle service after we picked up our luggage and were pleasantly surprised the bus was already waiting for us (11.30pm), so we could hop on and were back at the hotel/car park 15 minutes after. One note: the shuttle service demands you leave your car key as they'll park your car for you when you leave the hotel to get a flight.
