I stayed here for one night on business in Oct 2008.
Good points: the hotel was clean, bathrooms were too.
Bad points: nobody to check us in when we arrived (it was late at night, about 23.00 hrs). There was one girl who was waitress / bar attendant / receptionist. She was quite friendly, but told us that it was one of her first few days in this certain hotel, she had been moved from another one. We asked a few questions, she wasn't able to help us with some of them.
We had trouble getting food at that time of night, we hadn't had anything to eat and were hungry!. In the end, she did provide us with a plate of fried Dutch specialities.
The door on my room didn't close properly, you really had to pull it strongly to close it!. The rooms were small and very average. The bathroom was small and I didn't like the shower tray, with shower curtain... Water went everywhere!.
I have no idea of how much this hotel costs, but I'm guessing that you get what you pay for. As I say, it was a business trip, not a tourism trip, the booking of this hotel was all handled by the company that I work for.
The rooms have twin beds in them, we had booked two singles so this was a bonus (extra room). There is a nice flat screen TV in the room.
Breakfast was okay, nothing special. From 06.00 - 09.00 hrs. Usual food: cereal, fruit salad, coffee, tea, orange juice, toast, bread, etc. Some cooked dishes: eggs, etc.
I probably would stay here again, but only because it is quite near to the airport. I wouldn't stay here if it was a tourism vacation. There is a free shuttle bus to and from the airport.
Oh... we did have terrible trouble with getting a taxi from Shiphol airport to the hotel. They didn't want to take us, they said that it was too near to the airport (they had been waiting for clients for over 2 hrs), and that we had to get the shuttle bus. It was raining, it was dark, we had no idea of where this bus was... We said that we wanted a taxi, we even said that we would pay them extra if need be. In the end, they charged us 45 Euros for the journey from the airport to the hotel. I would say that if it at night-time, it is wise to get a taxi (we also had heavy luggage with us), if not, then get the bus.
