We had a twelve hour wait in Amsterdam and followed our phone directions to Yotel, we had a great sleep in a clean and quiet cabin.It was a tiny, tiny room but equipped with toilet, shower and sink, all one needs for a good rest...More
I stayed at this hotel inside the airport on my most recent trip during the return journey.
After a transatlantic flight overnight in which I got no sleep (personally find it difficult to sleep on planes) I was faced with an 8.5 hour layover.
The Yotel inside Schiphol main terminal is a convenient alternative for a night’s sleep or a few hours of sleep in between long connections at the airport.
This is a pod hotel so all the space is occupied by sleeping cabinets that accommodate one or...More
Practical by the hour rates. Located inside the terminal which makes ideal for transit travelers not having to go through immigration.
Only downside, they have only one room that fits a group of 4 or more. All their rooms are single or double occupants. Extra...More

The Yotel is on the non-Schengen side of arrivals, so you can go straight from your arrival flight to the hotel. However, if your destination is in the Schengen zone (most of Europe, but not the UK) then you will have to go through immigration (passport control) to get to your flight. You won't have to deal with your baggage however - it will be checked through to your final destination. Passport control can be busy at certain times of the day - particularly when most of the transatlantic flights arrive in the morning. So be sure to give yourself plenty of time. It might be better just to get to your gate and find a convenient bench, as I wouldn't think 5 hours is enough time to benefit from Yotel.

Yes....you do need a boarding card to enter the are where Yotel is placed. Even you do not need to fully leave the terminal, you need to show boarding card to go from hall to hall and finally enter the hotel. I am not sure if the "used" boarding card was valid from going from terminal to terminal without exiting the airport. If I were you, I would ask the Yotel directly.

My understanding is different from those who have already replied. The hotel is on the 'secure' side of the airport, so as long as you have not passed through passport control and collected your luggage, you should be able to get into the hotel directly.
What is not clear to me is what would happen with your luggage if you don't claim it right after the flight, but leave it until after your nap. Airlines do have places/ways to store unclaimed luggage, but I don't know if you would want to risk that--or if there is risk involved. You might ask the airline you're arriving on.
I take you to mean that you want to take a nap after arriving from the US and before 'entering' The Netherlands, not that you want to nap before boarding a US-bound flight. You also don't say that you are transferring in Schiphol to another flight and want to nap between them -- in that event, you would not be claiming your luggage.
I don't think it matters to passport control whether you go through immediately after a flight or a few hours later after a nap. But you should check with someone who knows this. I'm just guessing.
Once you go through passport control, you are outside of the secure zone -- and then, you cannot access the hotel. At that point, you might as well pick up your luggage, store it in a locker, return via passport control and security, and go to the hotel. After your nap, you will have to re-enter via passport control, and then go claim your luggage from the locker. It is do-able. But for all that, why not just go through all this once and head to a hotel either near the airport or in whatever city you're headed to?
