I was in Amsterdam for an exhibition at the RAI Exhibition Center. The RAI is conveniently located directly by a train station, where trains from the airport call; meaning that transfers to/from Schiphol are easily made in 15 minutes at a cost of 2.50 Euros.
The Novotel is located less than 200 meters from the train station and about 400 meters from the RAI. It is a classic business-class hotel, recently renovated and has a nice ambience. Like an earlier reviewer, I too ended up in a room with two single beds, having asked for a double in my reservation.
Free wifi access worked fine, and all the equipment in the gym was new and in good condition, as was the saune. The only thing lacking, when comparing to similar hotels elsewhere, would be a swimming pool.
I needed an iron and called housekeeping. It was brought to my room within 5 minutes of placing the request.
The breakfast buffet was fine, but at 22.50 Euros somewhat expensive, considering the price already paid to stay in the hotel...
While the hotel is on the outskirts of the city, the No. 4 tram terminates just outside the hotel and takes you to the Central Station in about 10 minutes at a price of 2.70 Euros.
