“A nice place to relax!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

If you don`t like to live in a big city, but prefer things like a swimmingpool and a balcony, than the Van der Valk Schiphol A4 is a really nice place.
The breakfast had both fried eggs that where prepeard why you waited (not fried 3 hours ago and lurking under a pan), and actually a surprisingly good coffee.

High quality restaurant for dinner with nice and positive staff. If you are staying for more than a night you could also eat at the "roadstop" who in addition to KFC, Burger King and other fast food restaurants, has an very nice Argentinian Steak House.

Downsides: The swimmingpool attracts children, noisy jumping children.. Not always the best combination if you actually want to swim for exercise.. The wellness-center did not function in the morning. The sauna was cold etc.
On the webpage it says that they hav 42 inch Flat screenTV in every room. In my room it was not a 42, probarbly around 30 inch or smaller.
I lived in the new section, the balcony has no walls seperating you from your neighbour who is smoking and watching you. In the other/older part, it looked as if the balcony is seperated from the neighbours.

The shuttle bus was free, on time, but I think 40 minutes intervall is a bit too long. Every 30 minutes would be better, every 20 minutes would be perfect.

A few downsides, but all in all I will probarbly come back sometime!

We booked a triple room in this hotel as an overnight stay following a visit to friends close by. The hotel room was very spacious with a huge LCD television, but was a little bit outdated. The bathroom had both shower and bathtub and had sufficient towels, shampoo and soap for the three of us. The beds slept perfect and the air-conditioning was silent and worked very good. We really enjoyed the room and had a good night sleep. Just one little thing the bed-lamps did not work. The breakfast the next day was perfect with just everything you could imagine for breakfast.

Excellent breakfast. The location is good too, close to the airport and possibility to use a shuttle buss. Nothing interesting around if you want to have a little walk; well, it's an airport hotel so..

We spent our last evening in Amsterdam at this hotel & very pleasantly surprised with our stay! We landed from Basel & took the free, short shuttle trip to the Valk, spending our last enjoyable night with our family in the hotel bar. Our room reservations made our check in, seamless & the staff were very pleasant. The room rate was reasonably priced & was very spacious, also included all required amenities. The hot buffet breakfast was included in our room rate & served in the main dining hall in the restaurant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Schiphol area.

Room Tip: It can be a long walk to your room, so you may want to request a room close to the centre of the hot...

This hotel is located at about 15 minutes from Schiphol Airport. Just like us, many people use it after or before flying from that airport. We could park our car there for just a little extra for 3 weeks. Shuttles to the airport although are only free during daytime from 6 am. We were unlucky to fly both times in the night. You must order a shuttle or taxi then and pay 20 Euro for the shuttle taxi, or a normal taxi we were forced to take because the shuttle was full, and then pay 25 Euro.
The entire price for us was therefore 215 Euro, in total for 4 persons. Pretty much, but a lot is included. But because of the price for me, I rate this at 3 instead of 4 stars.
We had a room with an extra wall between the beds, because of the little children. Although booked, we did get at first a wrong room and had to get back to the reception to change that. But it was quickly solved.
