Lelystad Netherlands

What is the best form of transportation to use to get from Amsterdam Airport to the Apollo Hotel in City Center Lelystad for two 65 year olds. Should we be aware of taxi scams at the airport? Thank you.

Hi there,

Yes the airport does have taxi scams, but even normal taxis would be outrageously much for this distance; count on about _150_ euro.

Best is:

a) Direct trains. See


and use 'Schiphol' and 'Lelystad Centrum' as origin/destination

b) From Lelystad station it looks 5-10 mins walk. See from the hotel website:

Public transport: NS

Leave Lelystad Centre train station at the front entrance (direction centre). Turn left past the building site, and turn into the first road on the right. Walk past the ING bank into the Dukaat passage, and keep following this until you see the Apollo Hotel Lelystad City Centre on your right.

So hopefully a taxi is waiting at Lelystad station, should cost you no more than 10 euro.

A train indeed is the best option.

I assume you have a specific reason to goto Lelystad? It is one of the most ugly places in Holland.
