“Close enough to Schipol”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

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!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

If you want a hotel a bit more remote than the usual Airport hotels, then this place is ideal. It only has ten rooms, but they are extremely clean, well equipped and probably has the most comfortable bed I've ever had? Only downside is the lack of a restaurant, but the restaurant that is around the corner in the Hotel Chariot is very good (review to follow). Normally there is free wifi throughout the hotel, but for my stay there was a problem and it wasn't working on the first floor. Breakfast is included in the room rate and is adequate - usual creel, breads, croissants, ham, cheese etc.

Blue Mansion is about a 10 minute taxi to/from AMS Airport and makes a nice get away from the usual airport hotels. It has extremely clean, modern compact rooms, down duvets, rain shower. Breakfast is a very good buffet with espresso machine (room has one too) and all the things you want to start the day. I would classify it as a business hotel. Very efficient and comfortable, good wi fi. Only quibble is that it isn't walking distance from the airport so you need to give yourself time (and cab fare) to travel there. But if you have the time it is fun to see a small town, canals, flowers in yards-a good break from the grind of travel. Our flight was rescheduled to arrive at 9 pm rather than the original 5 pm so it was a bit of a concern to get to the hotel rather than to just crash at a walking-distance hotel (Sheraton among others).
