“Hotel in massive need of refurbishment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

We were put up in this hotel by KLM following a missed flight. We had issues with aspects of the hotel which we took up with the manager. The manager handled it well by changing our rooms and offering us meals and drinks. However the owners of this hotel really need to support their staff to invest money to refurbish the place. It is essentially a good hotel a few miles from one of the world's major international airports..the rooms are large and have potential but everything looks and smells old.

Very good breakfast and inside swimming.
But it was difficult to locate it . Even my TomTom didn,t .
In the middle of the highway it said : arrive at destination, Then we drove around for 30 minutes fefore we reach it .
At the desk they said that many people had the same problems .
Even the ZIP [ post] code is not know untill now ,
But the hotel was perfect , 24 hours free parking ,
we will go back there

I always try and stay at this hotel when I need top be near Schiphol.

There is a free bus to and from the Airport, takes around 10 minutes and goes every 30 mins.

The Restaurant is fantastic , one of the best hotel restaurants around, I've stayed here around 10 times and its always been excellent.

The pool is decent, it's in the basement. The rooms are quiet, clean, comfy. There are also some quirky rooms for special occasions if your looking for one.

Although this Hotel is near the airport, the noise was not noticable, the rooms were very clean and presentable, and the breakfast spread was second to none. i belive this hotel is one of the biggest in Holland this is not to its detriment, the staff are very friendly and helpful and speak perfect English.
The Health spa facitities are good although the pool is a little small.
The Courtesy bus to and from the airport every 40 mins is very useful for getting in and out of Amsterdam, it is only 4 euros into Amsterdam from the airpaort by bus or train.
The bar prices are reasonable, infact they are cheaper than the bars in the city center.
I can highly recommend this Hotel.

The room was very clean, spacious & had a great view. We were leaving for home in the morning so it was great to have such lovely room. The bed was large and very comfortable.

positive about the hotel free shuttle service , thats probably where the positives stop, as soon as we arrived we noticed how dated all the furniture was , when we took the lift up to our room the lift smelt of urine, when we entered our room it smelt of cigarets even though it was a non smoking room, our bathroom also smelt of urine , we also noticed that there was no mattress protector on our beds , just a single sheet on the bed , whereas in our friends rooms they all had a mattress protector , when I reported this to the receptionist she was not helpful , rather rude to me , I would never stay here again , the place needs to be refurbished.
