“Most Definately Worth It for a stay near Airport”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night on a business trip to Amsterdam. The complimentary shuttle from the Airport was great, easy check in, no hassles. The receptionist, I think her name was Fluer, was great. Helped me in converting some Euros to coins for my train journey into town.

Pros:
1. Fresh, Clean Hotel
2. Close to Airport
3. Complimentary Continental Breakfast & wifi
4. Comfortable room for a Professional

Not so good:
1. Not ideal for a tourist. Will take you atleast an hour one way into town and back, as you have to either take the shuttle to airport and then a train, or walk to Hoofddorp for 2 trains each hour
2. No restaurant for dinner. But they do have some good options in a 15 min distance
3. The Bed in my room, was too soft. Not so great if you are not used to sinking all the way into the bed.

But overall, it was a very pleasant hotel and I would recommend it to anyone who is travelling on business near the airport / Amsterdam Zuid area.

I spent one night here this month and it was just fine. The room was comfortable and the bathroom very nice, even well decorated! Small rooms but most people won't spend more than a night in this hotel so that's just fine.

Breakfast was the least positive thing, all the food was pre-packaged and just didn't feel as good as breakfast usually is in the Netherlands.

I didn't use the shuttle but there is one. Parking is expensive, 15 euros per night.

Continental breakfast surprisingly good-cerals, pastries, yoghurt, packaged cheese and meats.
Airport shuttle every 30min and on time. Platform A9-13. Room was quite and a small bar is also available, along with a self service for food

I was pleasantly surprised by this Holiday inn Express. The public areas were great - super stylish and comfortable. Nice breakfast room, lounge, etc. Very inviting. The rooms were functional, comfortable, super clean, and nice. Great beds, tvs, and bathrooms even though the rooms were fairly compact.

The shuttle service from Schiphol is excellent and makes getting to the airport or downtown Amsterdam a breeze. The shuttles run every half hour.

I was leaving before the morning breakfast and the staff asked if I wanted a breakfast box made up. I declined but appreciated the offer. Incidently the breakfast was set up pretty early and smelled great and there was a wide variety of breads and cheeses and jams as well as fruits and cereals. The coffee was excellent.

Although the property itself is not super attractive (a hotel in a business park) it is a very quick and nice walk along a canal into central Hoofddorp which seems to have quite a few restaurants and shops as well as pubs and the likes. There are also bike trails all over the area.

The staff at the hotel were great. Very welcoming and professional. The value for the hotel was excellent. I would certainly stay there again if the need should arise. I enjoyed staying there and would have liked to have stayed longer.

Room Tip: All of the rooms seem fine.

I booked this because it was close to the airport and offered shuttle service. It is also a 10 min walk to the Train station. The staff was very kind to let us check in at 8:30AM after an over night flight from Houston. I really wanted a shower before we took off for a day of sight seeing. The room was a decent size and offered coffee and Tea. The morning was sunny so we walked to the train station. If it's rainy you can take the shuttle back to the airport and catch the train. We had an early morning flight out but were able to enjoy a coffee and breakfast before taking the shuttle again. The staff is exceptionally nice and we really enjoyed talking to the Shuttle drivers. If you are only in for the day this is a very reasonable place to stay.

The room was of excellent quality, a bit small but the lay out was efficient and the design very tasteful. So the small room felt not cramped. I felt immediately at home when entering the room. Also the room was soundproof and quite. The bathroom was very clean and modern with a good hot shower, the towels were also of very good quality, also the bedlinen and the choice of pillows. The only criticism was the lavk of amenities, only soap and shampoo, but if you need other amenities they provide everything at the reception. Also the breakfast was good, delicious croissants, and fresh bakery. The coffee was good, even the orangejuice was of good quality. For the price we paid the hotel was value for money, next time i would stay again.

This is a great hotel located about a 10 min. ride from Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. There is free shuttle which comes every 30 minutes. The hotel is spotless, quiet, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Rate includes a full hot breakfast with many selections, very unusual for Europe! We were travelling from the US to India and decided to break up the trip with a night/day in Amsterdam to overcome the jet lag. This was the perfect solution. The flights from Mumbai leave @ 1:30 am and you arrive in Amsterdam @ 7am the same day, after a 10 hr. flight. The hotel allowed us to check in that early upon arrival and didn't charge us for 2 nights. There is a local train across the street which will take you into the Central Station in Amsterdam where you can walk or take the tram system. The front desk will give you change as ;you have to buy your ticket out of a machine, or you can go back to the airport on the free shuttle and catch a train directly into Amsterdam as well. Smallish rooms but extremely comfortable beds and wonderful hot shower. Would highly recommend for a layover in Amsterdam.
