“I thought it would be better”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

On my recent trip to Europe I spend two nights in Amsterdam and decided to stay at the Ibis Hotel near the airport. I also reserved a room on my way back since my plane from Kiev would arrive too late for my connections.They offered free shuttle service to and fro the airport and train connections into the city center were very convenient. The check in was very easy and fast since I had prepaid my room charge. Lobby is fairly spacious although somewhat sparse. I took the escalator to the third floor, where my room was located. I realized that the hotel is laid out in a large "X" pattern with the rooms along very long corridors. My room was at the very end of one of these corridors. This is a bare-bones hotel. The layout (both inside and out) reminded me of military barracks. The walls are painted a dull neutral-white color that adds to the sterility of the environment. The room itself was fairly small, consisting of a bed, a built-in desk under the window, a small open closet and a very modular-looking bathroom. Everything was done in a bland pre-fabricated furniture look. The bathroom was quite tiny and you had to step up into it. It was very utilitarian. The bed itself was quite comfortable with white linens and a nice, warm comforter. This is a great room for simply spending the night but for any lengthy stay it would be totally inadequate. My only comparison of this hotel would be a Motel 6 or Super 8 hotel in the States. Going from the airport to the hotel took about 15 minutes. I was surprised when a huge bus pulled up and loaded the 4 or 5 people waiting for it. I soon realized, however, why they used such a large bus! On almost every subsequent trip to or from the airport, the bus was jammed full of people and baggage. You had to almost fight your way onto the bus, whether at the hotel or at the airport. The only nice thing about riding this bus is that there is a GPS-based monitor above to show the route the bus was taking and the approximate arrival times. If you are looking for a decent, clean place to stay for a single night in order to catch a plane, this is an ideal hotel.

Rooms and bathroom were clean but they did not have actual toiletries. There was no minibar or coffee/tea/cups provided at all.

Room layout is normal and felt spacious. Lots of TV channels available and free wifi is a plus. Breakfast choices are pretty standard hence boring. stay here if you are on budget.

Because we had to leave early next morning at Schiphol, we stayed in IBIS. Wonderful friendly, patient staff (sometimes needed with some silly demands I heard) , makes you feel at home instantly. Staff at reception very efficient. Big hotel, you don't get an overcrowded feeling. Restaurants are ok. Every floor has a machine with drinks, ground floor has some snack machines also. There are escalators, so waiting for an elevator is not necessary.
Room : big enough for a one night stay. Clean room and bathroom. Because there is a second door in the corridor going to the room, you can't hear a single noise coming from the hall way. (people come and go the whole night). Curtains are very tick, no light comes through in the morning.
Breakfast ; seems expensive so we ate at the airport, but that's even more expensive when you have a few coffee's and something to eat. Conclusion..have a nice start of the day and a large breakfast at Ibis.

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor. I don't know if all the other rooms have a second door. (bein...

Located at the airport, it is definitively a nice hotel with everything necessary for a night or so. A fairly large hotel designed for large groups (as the numerous coaches outside can attest) and business. Very functional and convenient, with on the third floor a decent choice of restaurants and nice bar in the lobby. Rooms are comfortable for that category, and of decent size. Breakfast is buffet style, and quality if average. And service is basic... But for the price in the airport area, it is the best quality for a competitive price. With direct shuttle service for the airport.

Room Tip: Roome on the 2nd or 3rd floor, and oposite to the entrnace of the hotel to avoid the noise of the hi...

Overall, it was a good hotel to stay at before an early morning flight. The shuttle took longer than expected but it was free. The reason I gave the hotel a 3 is because there's no real toiletry in the hotel room. Restaurant was decent.
