Been to this hotel now 6 times and every time i have really enjoyed it. it is 13 mins from schipol airport to hotel via free shuttle bus. and 7 mins from hotel back to airport then a mere 15 mins on the train to central station for all the coffeeshops which is what i go for. I have stayed in a few hotel in the centre of amsterdam and nothing compares to this hotel. As i am a smoker the main highlight for me is that all rooms have either a balcony or terrace. where as in the centre you would have to pay a considerable amount more for the same standard of hotel.TRUST ME I HAVE BEEN TO AMSTERDAM AROUND 20 TIMES AND STAYED IN MANY HOTELS IN THE CENTRE AND THIS IS THE ONLY HOTEL I HAVE STAYED IN MORE THAN ONCE. there is a kfc and petrol station opposite to buy necessities also a 24/7 burger king opposite which is also very helpful for a weed smoker haha other than that though there isnt anything else nearby so make sure if you want weed to buy plenty before going back to the hotel.
The rooms are very spacious and have a 42 inch tv with bbc1 and a couple of other english channels. the bathrooms are modern and spotless all rooms come with large bath and walk in shower with complimentary shower gel soap and shampoo. i honestly cant say one single thing wrong with this hotel. if i was to say anything it would be just the location due to there being no coffeeshops etc. nearby but trust me i am just being picky this hotel is definately worth the shuttle ride and train to the centre of amsterdam. also beds are very comfy and proper duvets unlike most hotels that just have thin useless things. and they also provide spare pillows in the wardrobe incase you want 2 pillows. Maids cleaned my room everyday and got new towels everyday. Always leave my wallet etc. out when maids are in room and nothing has ever gone missing (unlike other hotels in the centre of amsterdam). so i now dont even use the safe thats how much i trust this hotel Vaery spacious balconys aswell not small and cramped at all. if anyone has anything bad to say about this hotel then in my eyes they are seriously deluded or just people who just have to much time on there hands

Room Tip: any room not on the bottom floor as i prefer my private balcony as the rooms on the bottom have terr...

The room was very clean & tidy.. it just could have been better lighted and more reachable power outlets was needed. The hotel has a near group of restaurants & cafes just across the parking areas, and the shuttle bus from and to the airport was of a great help.

Stayed here with friends in February, we booked this as the hotel looked nice, we didn't realise the distance to the city centre upon booking, it was a 30 minute shuttle bus to the hotel from the airport and around a 45 minute trip to the city centre from hotel, cost us around 80 euros in a taxi after a night out! The hotel itself is very clean though, rooms are decent, we had 2 double beds, a decent size balcony and bathroom. Although on the morning checking out the hotel was covered in police and we was ushered out through a back door as they was investigating a murder on site during the middle of the night!! I recommend stopping closer to the city centre...

Upon arriving to said hotel it was late and the first thing they did was charge us 7.50 euros...

Then when getting to the room there is no kettle for making teas and coffees?! What's more is the fact you have to pay 15 euros to /borrow/ a kettle? How long can I borrow said kettle for? Am I able to /borrow/ kettle and take home with me? Ship it back in a few years maybe?

Now I have to buy a cup of tea every time I want one! Not the best thing to do first thing in the morning!

The room was not per the standards of the hotels in the US. It was sub-par in my personal opinion. The flush had a problem, the vault is not functional, the remote did not do anything, the bed was bad. The hotel is not very close to the airport, the shuttle runs every 15-30 mins from the airport (they have the schedule on the website). The front desk is friendly and the bar on the first floor is ok. The cab to city center will cost around Euro 40-50.

We took this hotel in combination with parking and late arrival at the airport. We found the parking and shuttle service to the airport very efficient. We took the hotel (in stead of driving home) so that we would not have too much lack of sleep after arriving only in the middle of the night. However, slamming of doors by the cleaning service ruined our plan of sleeping out very late; we woke up around 9.30 am. The beds and bathroom were fine. The breakfast is somewhat pricy, but of very good quality.
