This hotel is a good choice if you are on a budget. Its a quick bus trip from the airport (although be warned that the blue Accor Bus stops and the IBIS and IBIS Budget before it gets to Badhoevedorp so it can get a little bit packed!!)
I've reviewed it once before when I had a huge exec suite with a bath in the middle of the room. This time I went for a basic room in the hopes of getting a normal bathroom - which I did. It was OK - a small balcony and a view of Schiphol in the distance. They've also added a Nespresso machine. The furnishing is basic (a bit aged - the headboard has turned yellow!) and the TV is ancient. But they are OK for one night. However the bathroom was grim - small and very dark despite 3 eco-bulbs. The shower was disgusting and had mould all around it so I used the shower over the bath which was at least very clean.
The best bit about this hotel is the pub in the basement which is now open from 7pm during the week. This has a large screen showing sports and it serves a great selection of beers and wines. We had Pizza and a large plate of bitterballen (guilty pleasure!!) both of which were incredibly hot and really tasty (EUR 10 per dish) - it was a great surprise and we had a really enjoyable evening there. The barman was great - very friendly and he spoke perfect English for us (thank you!) There isn't much around the hotel so if you want to relax I really recommend the bar in the basement - I'd go back for the bitterballen alone!
