We stayed at this hotel for a 3 day stopover in Amsterdam on an international trip that connected through Schipol. We made reservations on line and reconfirmed in advance by phone since we wanted to request early check in. The conversation started in Dutch but quickly switched to English was very friendly and our request was confirmed by informing us of a 20 Euro one time charge. Since our plane arrived at 7:30 am, the convenience of early check in for 20 Euro was great value. The free hotel shuttle bus service operates at fixed times, and runs like clockwork. The shuttle from airport to hotel takes longer (30 Minutes) than the shuttle from hotel to airport (10 Minutes) because the bus has to drive past the hotel on the highway to the next exit and back track. The shuttle bus is huge and accommodated all passengers and luggage comfortably. We found the shuttle bus very convenient and easy to plan around, making the hotel a great base to get to the Airport and a quick hop to Amsterdam by train / bus. The hotel is one of the largest we have seen and is well decorated. Hotel reception was friendly and efficient. We were offered a choice to pay by Credit Card at check in or approve an authorization for the estimated amount with the final bill being settled at check out tso as to place restaurant / other charges on the account. The Credit Card showed a charge pending right away but the Hotel processed charges as they has explained and there were no issues. The rooms are large and comfortable but might be a long walk from the lobby. Heat, A/C and Hot water were perfect.
The hotel gets a lot of stranded passengers who have missed flights and we saw the staff work hard to ensure that the restaurant was kept open past closing time to serve them. We decided to get desert late on Mothers Day and despite the frenzy of stranded passengers and almost closing time, the friendly staff got us seated and served, taking the time to give my wife a Mothers Day gift from the Hotel.
Overall this hotel has great staff and is a great value if you do not mind staying away from the airport and city and having to rely on the shuttle bus if you do not have your own car.
