Airport hotels have a single purpose: provide guests/passengers with adequate accommodation close to the airport, which is orally located outside the city anyway, so comments that the hotel is in the middle of nowhere make no real sense!
Shuttle bus takes you from Schiphol to the hotel in 15 minutes; the night driver is most friendly and a big fado fan! Though not available 100% of the time, requesting it for the afternoon is really no big deal!
Check-in is fast and efficient, receptionists are most friendly and my upgraded room was ready for me close to midnight, with a treat, fruit plate, bottle of water and open minibar: that gave me the feeling of being waited for!
Ms Noodram, head of reception, is most kind and attentive, do refer to her if anything is needed!
The rooms are really tiny, though, two people in one are a crowd and bump into each other! Also, the ceiling is quite low, so if you're taller than 185cm, mind your head! I believe it would have been better to have fewer rooms but larger ones, especially the deluxe/suite!
Internet is fast and free, breakfast is Mercure standard, dinner menu is stylish and elegant and relatively cheap!
A bus takes you to the heart of Amsterdam in 15 min, every 15 min for €2.50 - one is really not castaway from civilization!
Definitely a place to be back when in need of a couple of nights near Schiphol!
