You're going abroad. You want a convenient hotel. But, you don't want to stay too close to the centre of Amsterdam? Why not stay near to Schiphol Airport? If you are thinking this, do NOT stay at this hotel!!! Rather than being close to the Airport it is almost half the way to Utrecht!
On landing at the airport our first priority was to walk over to the hotel, drop off our luggage and head out into Amsterdam. We were on a football visit so wanted to make the most of the time we had. When we got out we saw a Best Western Shuttle Bus. Perfect. Well, it was perfect, until the driver told us that out hotel wasn't on his route. Instead we were advised to get a taxi. It cost a mere 36 Euro.
Once we got to the hotel, we were told there was a bus nearby that would take us into Amsterdam. After half an hour we eventually found the bus station and it took about an hour to get into Amsterdam. The last bus from Centraal Station is at about midnight so don't run the risk of missing it if you do stay here and are relying on public transport.
To get a taxi back to Schiphol the next morning cost another 50 Euro. In all honesty, for the extra 86 Euro spent on taxis we could have just booked into a better placed hotel.
The hotel itself though is pleasant. From the outside it's not particularly aesthetically pleasing, however the inside is very nice, very comfortable and clean. The staff were also very friendly and helpful, giving as much help as they could in helping us get from place to place.
All in all though, I would not advise staying here, simply because of the location.
