We stayed here for 1 night for the sole purpose of being close to the airport (Schipol).
2 rooms - 1 single (for mom) and 1 double (for hubby and me).
With mom flying back to SA early on Sunday morning - we wanted a nice spot to stay on her last night in Europe.
We spent the day in Amsterdam and drove through to the hotel in the afternoon.
Check-in was pleasant and easy.
Our rooms were on the ground floor - which was perfect as after a day of walking around the city - I don't think any of us wanted to climb stairs (I don't know if they have an elevator - but I doubt it).
The moment we sank into the beds - I was in heaven! Super comfortable mattress (soft) and lovely duvet. the only critism is that as a couple - it was 2 single mattresses and 2 single duvets... meaning that the rift between us in the bed was there, minutes after getting into bed.
The bathroom is very well equipped and the rain shower was delightful!
Even though our rate included breakfast - we had to leave at 7.30am when breakfast was only served at 8am. I did inform the receptionist when we checked-in... and thought that they might offer to put a little snack pack together... but they didn't, so I didn't ask.
in terms of restaurants - we went down the road to *Cin-cin* , an Italian spot that is open from 5pm in the evening and their pizza's were fantastic.
In general - as long as you have a car, this hotel is definitely a must stay if you are planning to fly in or out of Schipol!
