Just got back from a group trip .Hotel gave us all we needed . easy access from airport . just a 15 min train ride and very close to the train station. Although there are no shops or bars nearby the trains run until 1 am and just 4.20 euros gets you a return train ticket into Amsterdam Central station with trains running every 3 mins or so.
The hotel does have a little of a hostel feel as it is very popular with groups of young people. Having said that it is very modern and spotlessly clean.and was quite with not much noice made by other guests all were very well behaved. Rooms are adequate with hair-dryer and complimentary toiletries. and very very clean . with comfy beds. Breakfast of 5.90 euro's pp was excellent value with good choice continental style.
Only gripe was the 2 nights we spent there the bar was closed between 4pm to 11 pm so we could not even get a cup of coffee when we returned after a busy day and evening in the city. No coffee making facilities in the room. You can use the kitchen kettle at the bar so take your own coffee/tea etc.,
all in all though perfect for our 14 strong group of 40/50 yrs olds. would definatley use again.
