“Convenient choice for an overnight stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

The welcoming started weeks prior to my arrival, when communicating with reception regarding it due to logistics; she had the most friendly tone and all my requests were seen into!
The shuttle bus at Schippol is most punctual and at no time one reaches the hotel, in a dead area near the airport, so do not count on anything to do outside the hotel, except for the local restaurant 2 minutes away!
The Dutch are always very kind people and really service-oriented, always chatty and with a smile to offer - so was welcoming at check-in!
My travel partner had checked in before me and all amenities and complimentary items were already available then, unlike in other hotels of the chain, where one needs to beg to have their status acknowledged!
The two beds in the suite are huge, a whole family can stay in! However, I couldn't help feeling transported back to the 80s with the decoration, rather too woody and a bit tacky - a frequent Novotel guest, businessperson or not, expects the modernness the brand implies, not the feeling of being in an old building! This is actually the sole negative aspect of the hotel!
Breakfast is most assorted, dinner/lunch menu is concise and not expensive, internet is fast and reliable; the pool and sauna in the basement don't seem used often, which means they kind of belong to you, excellent!!!
If willing to have some more comfort than at neighbouring Ibis Budget and Ibis, and if there is a good offer for a little bit more euros, take my advice and do book your stay tthere!

Being close to the airport this hotel has facilities you would expect to appeal to businessmen.
Staff was well mannered and spoke perfect English.
The room was standard size, clean with a comfortable bed and a decent size bathroom.
Overall good value for money.

Typical Novotel. No real surprise. Shuttle service to and from the airport is good, other than that the location is terrible. You're stuck in a residential neighborhood with nothing to do around. Breakfast is OK

The hotel is localized in a good region, however, the service is not that good, the parking is very expensive and it is impossible to pay for the breakfast. Good aspects, it is clean, close to the airport and has free shuttles.

I stayed at this hotel just for a night for early departure the next morning. I did not know where I can take the hotel shuttle so took a cab instead. It was during the rush hour in the evening and it took 20 min and cost 32 euro! The driver said I should have taken the shuttle and I will do that next time. The shuttle goes to two other nearby hotels and the next morning, the first shuttle bus to the airport was very packed. Several people missed the shuttle because of too many passengers. I had dinner at the hotel, and it was not bad at all. The atmosphere was just OK and most customers are solo. Not many selections, and what I chose was the daily special, which was hearty and tasty. The room was comfortable enough and quiet. The bathroom was pretty clean and the tub was large enough to ease my stress. I may come back to this hotel for the transit.

I think this is an above average airport hotel. There is a Good free shuttle service from the airport, which took about 10 minutes. The staff are excellent, on arrival they easily sorted out a problem with my booking and amended my bill on check out. The food was of good quality, both at dinner and breakfast and there was a good service in the restraunt. The rooms were clean and in good repair.
