Modern, functional business hotel, 15 minutes drive from Schiphol. Great rate from hotels.com (£62 inc tax and breakfast). Bus from Schiphol is every 30 and I missed it by a minute, so got a taxi (24 EUR). Slow check-in, but charming/helpful receptionist (Mandy) excelled by arranging for the gym to be opened early for me the next morning. Dinner in bar of reasonable quality (but expensive, as you'd expect). Got 5% on the spot discount on F&B by signing up to their loyalty card - always welcome.
Room functional but fine - 3rd floor airport side but very quiet despite this. Gym well equipped (expecially when you're alone in there ;-), breakfast really good, with excellent choice and quality. Used the free bus back to Schiphol, which left dead on time despite very busy carpark with several tour coaches being loaded.
Overall impression pretty good. Great value at this rate. Could do with a rethink on some things - why only open the gym from 7am? If you want to exercise, have breakfast and be in a meeting in Amsterdam for 9am, there's not enough time. Also needs a quick check out function - I asked at the desk at 06.20 if I could check out to avoid the rush. I was wearing running shorts and a t-short and the guy at the desk asked if I'd need to go back to my room before leaving as if he checked me out it would switch off my key card!! :-)
I'll use the hotel again though, purely on the rate, the breakfast, and how helpful Mandy was when I checked in...
