“Clean and Quiet Airport Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

The hotel is located a few miles from Schiphol airport in a place called Hoofddorp. We stayed for 2 nights over a weekend and as it is on a business park, it was very quiet indeed.

The hotel operate a free shuttle service to and from Schiphol airport every 30 minutes and it is important to book when going to the airport as it can get full.

Travel into Amsterdam Centraal costs EUR 4 from Schiphol station by train. The ticket machines do not accept notes, only coins and cards. If you travel from Hoofddorp station, which is a 10 minute walk from the hotel, the cost is EUR 4.80 but the ticket machine only takes coins or Dutch cards.

The rooms were clean and functional and the breakfast was quite basic but adequate. There was a choice of packaged meats and cheeses, hard boiled eggs, juices, hot beverages, pastries, breads and toast.

The hotel has no restaurant for lunch or dinner, with L'Hirondelle being the nearest option nearby. It does have a small bar.

Whilst I would happily stay at the hotel for a brief stay again, it's probably worth getting a hotel located in the centre of the city if you're staying in Amsterdam for any length of time.

The breakfast is basic simple and good enough with plenty of room in the dining room. The walk to the center of town is 1km, but then there are plenty of options for restaurants.
The biggest issue I have with the hotel is the lack of control over the climate of the room. You must ask the front desk for a particular setting (and hopefully it will not default back to the original setting.
One day the shower door could not close anymore. They also busted my bottle of shaving cream perhaps while trying to fix it. I fixed the door myself
THe bikes they rent are of good quality but too small for someone over 185cm (6ft)

Room Tip: KIngsize beds will give a little bit more room to maneuver around the room

Very good hotel next to Schiphol Airport. Good service and amenities. Spotless rooms and very quiet. Exactly what you need for an overnight or a short stay in Amsterdam. The hotel should add more signs of direction in different parts of the village (Hoofdrop) as reaching the hotel could be a hastle if you do not know the area.

Room Tip: A bit complicated to reach on your own. Use a taxi.....

Schiphol airport hotel and what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Free Shuttle from airport, modern interior with everything you need, simple but good breakfast. Caution though, the hotel doesn't have a restaurant. Instead they offer a good choice of delivery services. Also in Hoofddorp you can find a choice of restaurant in walking distance.

First time in Amsterdam and not sure where to stay so booked hotel near airport. Airport shuttle was great for getting to and from airport several times each day. We used airport as our lauch site for our weekly adverture. The front desk staff at the hotel is EXCELLENT. Breakfast bar was good and plentiful. Hotel and room, clean and modern.

Comfortable rooms, good breakfast, and helpful staff near airport. Airport shuttle runs every 30 minutes. It's advisable to make a reservation, since the shuttle fills up some times.

Excellent restaurant recommendation from desk staff. L'Hirondelle is a pleasant 5 minute walk from the hotel. There are several directional signs marking the path. Food was excellent, and there is a nice deck on a beautiful pond. A little pricey (20 euros for the special three course dinner), but worth it.

The hotel is excellent for an overnight stay between flights. My room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely polite and even called my room to check everything was ok for me. The only downside was that there is no restuarant facility in the evening but there is a bar with snacks available. The real plus for me was the free hotel shuttle bus service. Pick up and drop off right outside the front of the airport. The service runs every 30 mins with helpful drivers. Excellent value for money stay.
