“Excellent hotel, good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is quite close to the airport but far away from the city centre. We had to take a bus to the city centre which took approx. 25 mins. The rooms were big and whoole ambience of this hotel is lovely. The breakfast buffet was the best part of our stay. From fresh orange juice to eggs made as you want, they had a royal breakfast spread. After the heavy breakfast there, we didn't have lunch on any of the days.
Absolutely recommendable if you are willing to travel a bit to get to the city centre.
We also got a free airport transfer on the day we left. Their transfer buses leave every hour I think from morning 6 o clock.

We stayed at the Mercure Amsterdam airport for 2 nights in late December 2013, just after Christmas, and had a wonderful time.

I agree with pretty much all of the previous reviews. For what you pay for, you can't really ask a lot more from this hotel. So I'll summarise in pro's and cons:

Pro's:
1. Lovely staff - welcoming, helpful, accommodating.
2. Restaurant - fabulous breakfasts - all continental options (juice, tea, coffee, breads, pastries, fruit, cereals, bacon, cheese, eggs, pancakes, donughts, salad, freshly squeezed OJ in the coolest machine I've ever seen, biscuits). We also had an evening meal in the resturant which was yummy, and I'd definitely recommend!
3. Free shuttle bus to and from the airport (runs every 15 mins from 6pm to 10pm and in the morning until 11am, but you can request it at any other time of the day, which we did).
4. Good beds - ours was huge and really comfortable.
5. Gym/leisure facilities - located at the end of the first floor - basic (1 bike, treadmill, cross-trainer, weights etc).
6. For those with a car - there is a petrol station just outside the hotel. Oh, and an M&S Food for those who get peckish!

Cons:
1. Distance from Amsterdam - NOT a fault of the hotel but just beware that you cant walk into the city centre. There is a bus (2 euros per person) which you can catch from just outside the hotel (go out of the hotel main entrance, cross the road and turn right, walk about 500m and the stop going towards the city will be there). The buses are scheduled to run about once every 20 minutes on every day of the week incl Sundays (but we did wait longer on the Saturday for about 40 minutes). BEWARE - DON'T get a taxi from the hotel/city - it costs a LOT (50 euro's) - definitely get the bus!

We paid 75 euros per night for the both of us (through booking.com). Compared to other options around Amsterdam I have to say, I think that this was really good value for money and would definitely recommend to others!

Thank you very much for all your kind words about our hotel. It is a pleasure to read you have enjoyed your stay. We are indeed not located in the city centre of Amsterdam, but we also think the bus running across the street is very convenient for our guests to go into town.
Thank you again for your kind review and I hope to welcome you soon again.

Booking the hotel, we only paid about 80 $ for a regular room and it was not bad at all.
As it was not too crowded in November we could make a choise and got a room on the fountain side. It was quit. The room itself was confortable, however for our rate no courtesy water was available. There was central heating and air conditioning, so we did not have to freeze.
The staff is very helpfull and nothing was too much to ask.
It's true that the shuttle should have normal service before 18:00 but the time he is in service, he is on time.However, if arriving in Amsterdam between 12:00 and 18:00, the shuttle comes for pick up when you apply for.
Resume : to recommend.

Room Tip: rooms on the "fountain side" are quit located.

Comparing this Hotel to the Mercure in Tilburg, this one is much much better. Breakfast is better, rooms are bright.
Mercure Tilburg should be improved to match the standards of this Mercure in Amsterdam Airport.
Only problem is it is 12km away from Airport and away from city.

This hotel makes a convenient stop for people who need to fly out of Amsterdam early the next morning. The room we were given was great, nice and clean with a warm, contemporary touch. The bed was very comfy which made it easy to get a good night sleep before our long intercontinental flight the next day. We were satisfied with the service, there is a complimentary bus transfer service which takes people to the Schiphol airport at regular intervals.

Very friendly staff, but this hotel is showing its age. The lift is tiny, with a pull-open door and no inside door (the wall sliding by). For a 4 star airport hotel, the shuttle should be more than once per hour.

staff is friendly, rooms seem a bit small but has a complementary shuttle from and to the AMS airport, also a gas station in walking distance if you don't want to spend a lot of money on food. I purchased the room on Hotwire for over half off then the rate the wanted at the check in counter.
