The hotel is accessible from Schipol via Bus 69. Several trams will bring you to and from hotel to the city center in 20-30 minutes. Not much to do in the immediate area which wasnt a problem for us as we arrived late at night. We had a lovely room facing the canal at the back side so it was...

Very nice hotel, rooms were a great size and very clean. Excellent bathroom with modern fixtures. The staff were very friendly at the reception area. Breakfast in the mornings included a good range of foods from hot eggs to ham and cereal. Was a pleasant stay.
