This hotel is just a few minutes away from Schipol Airport in Hoofdorp. The rates are reasonable, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the location is close to Hoofdorp Train Station should you want to venture into Centraal or other neighborhoods. The workout facility was small, but had sufficient equipment for a decent workout, plus trail maps are provided that prefer to go outside and run. The pool and spa are also nice additions.
Breakfast was included in the room rate and had a very wide selection of traditional selections, plus full English and/or American breakfast for those a bit hungrier.
My only complaint was the complimentary Internet connection. To say that it was slow would be a gross understatement. The logon page stated the connection speed would be limited to 192Kbps, but I am fairly certain there was a decimal point missing -- should have been 19.2Kbps!!
There are other connection speeds available that are faster, but you will need to pay for those unless you are an IHG Gold or Platinum member. I was finally able to work around the limitation by using Skype Internet which used the premium service speed but at a much cheaper rate.
That issue aside, I was very happy with the hotel.
