“Another good Radisson hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

In the past six weeks we have stayed in a number of hotels, many of which were Radissons. Have been happy with them all including this hotel. Friendly helpful staff. The room was fine. Also one of the best scrambled eggs I have tasted over the past six weeks.

Airport hotels are not generally known for their character and personality, and this was no exception. On the other hand, it is a very comfortable place to stay. I chose it because it was about half the price of a similar standard of hotel in Amsterdam itself. I'm not sure I would do so again, though. It's just a little too much hassle - you need a shuttle followed by a train into town, which will take between 3/4 hour and an hour - or longer if you just miss the shuttle, as we did once. So about 2 hours of your day is spent on a fairly tedious journey to and fro.
Also, you can't wander around at night taking in the atmosphere in town because you're worried about getting back and not missing the last shuttle. The other problem was that after a full day of sightseeing, you feel like going back to your room for a rest before heading out again, but the distance means you can't really do that. So all in all, I wouldn't recommend booking here for a break in Amsterdam itself. Of course, if it's an airport stopover, that's different.

The rooms were good - we were amusingly enough in room 747 - and the upgrade we took to a business class room meant we had a great view over the runway, almost a 180 degree panorama. So if you're into planespotting, get a room on that side of the hotel! The bed was amazingly comfortable too. The standard room was also perfectly ok and nothing to complain about, though rather dated in decor (the corridors were a horrible peachy-orangey colour which was frankly vile, but I believe they are refurbishing floor by floor.)

It's well worth getting breakfast included as there is absolutely nothing else nearby - you would have to eat at the airport instead. They charge the usual ludicrous amount for it as an add-on, but if you get it in your room rate it's good value. I think I only paid about £45 extra for 6 nights for the two of us. Check the offers on Hotels.com or Expedia and make sure you pick a rate including breakfast. Food was actually very good here - not just breakfast but also the one evening meal we had - but the prices were, as you would expect, extortionate.

They do seem to have a policy of offering room upgrades for "9 euros" but don't make clear (or at least didn't to us) that this is per person, not per room. So make sure you understand exactly how much extra you will be charged. The business class rooms are more spacious and include a bathrobe, slippers and extra toiletries, but there isn't much "wow factor" - apart from the mattress, which must have been one of the most comfy I have ever slept on and was much better than the one in the standard room.

Service was generally very good and certainly professional, but this is really a business hotel and a place to crash after a plane journey (if I can put it like that!) more than a place for tourists. One exception might be if you are planning trips around the whole of the Netherlands, not just Amsterdam, as there are frequent trains from Schiphol station itself and you might just as well base yourself here as in the centre of town.

Room Tip: If interested in planes, ask for one on the runway side. If worried about noise, ask for one on the...

This hotel is average, don't expect too much. Its quite spotlessly clean, the room size is just nice, there's a mini bar with a small personal space for your own item. The bathroom shower and all works as expected. There isn't much to say about this hotel except its pretty much average. Okay maybe its slightly above average. It's a nice and decent hotel and if I can give 3.5 stars I would. If you're looking for something cheaper they have Park Inn hotel nearby which is supposedly also owned by Radisson.

If you're reading this review you're probably either just transiting for a day while waiting for your next flight in which case you will survive - probably. If you're like me stuck here for a couple of days for business - well here's a survival guide!

I also tried the food at the Lighthouse below, it was alright - they have a daily special but the couscous with duck I had, not a good choice hehe. But beware, there's really not much choices for food if you live in this hotel. Do note however the restaurant at the lower ground level (which serves you breakfast) serves a different menu than the one on top - so in case you do plan to bunker in for two weeks like I did, then at least you have *some* choices. Note the price for room service seems similar to eating downstairs - so its not a bad idea to get some work done while eating in the privacy of your own room.

Now, for getting about - here's my tip. There's a bus that goes to the airport every 30 minutes. If you intend to take this bus, be sure you're early! The schedule is something like 1pm, 1.30pm, 2pm, etc. but you want to be there 10 minutes before! There's an hour or so where they don't operate - do check the schedule!! Now, what can you do with this bus? It's a free transportation to the airport where you can then connect via train to Amsterdam Centraal! There's also plenty of food at the airport including some mini market and a starbucks! Note that the shuttle also goes from the airport to the hotel and they operate like 1.15pm, 1.45pm, 2.15pm, etc. Again, I cannot stress how important it is, be there like 10 minutes early or you will miss it!

Your other choice would be Aalsmere - you can rent a bike and cycle out there which is just about 10-15 minutes away. Or you can walk - its not very far and you go through a nice dutch little town. There's a Albert Heijn mini market here and some restaurants. Aside from these two choices, there's not much to do around here!

And oh, if you're getting around town, be sure to get the app for the smartphone called 9292 which basically teaches you how to get around town using public transportation - its really an awesome app! Not sure why the dodgy name however....!

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same. None are any closer to any good restaurants nearby ;)

Been for a business trip, with long daily meetings in the hotel.
The place is modern and decent, conferencing / training facilities are OK, rooms are very good.
Surroundings are VERY quiet, there is shuttle from hotel to airport and back each 30 minutes.
But, if you want to go to the city, is very far, I recommend to take the shuttle and them train to Central station.
When we took a taxi, it cost 80Eur one-way and takes ~45 minutes to Central, much more expensive and a little longer than public transportation.
Restaurant is NOT five stars, so if you plan more dinners in Amsterdam, you should find alternatives.

A real business meetings hotel or perfect for connection flights over the night.
Not really in Amterdam.

We stayed here 2 nights as we were visiting friends in Amsterdam who live near the airport. This was a great choice.

The shuttle ride is a little far, but it is worth it as the property is very comfortable. They also have free shuttle back to the airport.

Service was good and beds were very comfortable. A good choice.

Very close to airport for late arrival by hire car. But we could have got there on the hotel shuttle. We got an exceptional rate without breakfast through Agoda, but the parking for a hire car was expensive.

We were able to have a late light meal at the bar near reception, which was most pleasant surroundings with some Dutch style snacks and good beer.

The bed and pillow were really comfortable, and the room was very smart with an iron, ironing board, trouser press, and well equipped.

We wanted the hotel for the gym, but we arrived too late after a daylight flight, and left too early.

Will definitely stay here again at that rate.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights as part of a tour group, We were very pleased with the level of comfort and cleanliness. The staff were extremely helpful and happy to please, and made an effort especially as my daughter has a restricted diet .The hotel provided a different main course each night to suit my daughter's needs.

The breakfast choice was a little repetitive , but more than adequate. Staff started to clear away the food at 8-50am ready to close at 9am.

Despite being about 10-15 mins from the airport we heard no aircraft noise from the room. The shuttle bus timetable is available on the noticeboard just outside the airport by stand 9.Also, inside the main door at the hotel. Just watch, there are 2 breaks in the timetable during the day.

We used the shuttle bus one evening to do some shopping at the airport. The hotel is quite isolated, with landscaping and paths around the business park.

Okay, if you like a gentle stroll to watch the ducks and the waterfowl.Look out for the huge hare living in the grounds.
There are also some bicycles for hire at the hotel, but we didn't have time to try them due to a busy schedule.

My daughter tried out the Spa, she said the massage was very reasonable compared with London prices.

This hotel would be great for anyone to use as a base, as we did. The road network is very good,and you are soon out in the countryside.

This hotel is not for you if you like clubs and nightlife, as a taxi into Amsterdam could set you back about £50.
