“Great Alternative To Staying in Amsterdam City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Didn't want to stay in Amsterdam city center, so opted for this hotel after reading reviews. Room was clean but decor was a little outdated. Made me think of that old Love Boat TV show. Staff were polite. It was easy to take the shuttle to the airport so that you can take the train into Amsterdam central. There is grocery market in the airport which is a cheap place to get bottled water and snacks for the hotel. I also had dinner at the airport instead the hotel restaurant (based on reviews).

And if you're driving, there is a McDonalds nearby for cheap coffee and breakfast.

Overall, a pleasant night's sleep here. My first experience with a Novotel too.

Most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed. Hotel is not that clean, they didn't even change the sheet for weeks. Clients always shouting at customers. Airline lounge is like a mass. Restaurant's menu is very weak. Too far away from everywhere. Hotel has some management problems. Every receptionist executes another procedure, prices and procedures are not standart for receptionists. Some of the hotel shuttle drivers tries to kill passengers. Totaly a very amateur hotel which doesn't deserve the price they want.

Chose this site for it's proximity to the airport and free shuttle back and forth. However, all told, if you calculate the price of the train in and out of Amsterdam (8 euro r/t) you might find a hotel within the city for about the same cost.
Facilities were very good. Excellent, helpful staff. Very nice lounge in lobby area and a small pub the floor below. Room was large for European standards. Bathroom was quite large and spotless. Can't figure out the the two twins pushed together instead of a regular double.

I usually stay at the Ibis when I want to be near the airport. This was my first time staying at this Novotel, which is also near the airport. There is a shared shuttle with Ibis from Schiphol. The hotel is a level up from the normal Ibis. There is a gift shop, bar, restaurant, and even a pool in the basement. The room was larger than your typical crammed Ibis room. The bathroom was a decent size. There was a free buffet breakfast with my room which was decent as well.

The only negative thing about the hotel is that has not been kept well. The building needs major face lifting and refurbishing. The carpets in the hotel look old and worn out (includes the rooms). The furniture in the hotel also looks dated and needs to be replaced.

Nevertheless, for the money you pay compared to other hotels in Europe it is a good deal.

The staff were very friendly during my staff.

Room Tip: Don't get to the hotel before 12pm as they might charge you extra to get you into a room.
