“Good hotel, bad location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

The hotel is good, although a little bit pricy (certainly for food/drinks). It is in the airport vicinity with an adequate shuttle bus transfer to the airport. But for the rest, there's nothing to do in the neigbourhoood. The only 'restaurant' nearby is a McDonalds because the hotel is situated near an industrial site (offices, factories,...)

stayed last week for 4 nights and this week for 3 nights. Rooms ok but temperature range from warm to far too hot, no fresh air possible but generally clean and practical. Big bonus with fitness ( could do with more equipment, cycles, cross trainer etc.), pool, whirlpool and squash courts. My biggest gripe is with the level of service from the staff in the restaurants and bars. I think for a 4 star hotel this is just not acceptable. Long waiting times to be either served or order taken, total lack of interest from rude, unmotivated and obviously untrained staff. Unfortunately everything appeared to be TOO much trouble for them and my opinion in some cases these people seem to be in totally the wrong profession. In fact at breakfast this morning I felt physically threatened by one of the waiters for having the nerve to ask for some butter. The shuttle bus was also a lottery to see if there were enough places for the journey back and forth to the airport, again the drivers were unfriendly and sometimes downright rude. I think the NH should understand they are not the only hotel at the airport and service really does count in todays crowded marketplace with many other available choices, in fact because of our experience at this hotel my company are moving its people away from the NH to the Mercure.

A comfortable hotel right by the airport, good sized rooms, great bed but we did have 2 single beds pushed together to make one which we don't really like. Bathroom was good sized and had a shower over bath.
We had room service for dinner as we really were just there to sleep after an international flight. It was yummy food but you didn't get a whole lot and they didn't give you everything it said on the menu (soup but forgot the bread sticks)
At that point we were too tired to care!
Had a free shuttle to & from airport which was easy to find. We thought we would have to pay for ride back to airport the next day but we didn't have to pay.
Would stay there again simply for convenience but good enough for a one night.

School was closed due to the bad weather so we were given this hotel for an overnight, Sunday night. Klm herded us out into the freezing weather and snow with hundreds of other people. We waited until an inadequate bus turned up(8 seats) and eventually got to the hotel. Amazing that no one queues in Europe.

Checked in ok and had a decent, if dusty room. However, the staff fell well short of help in my opinion. As we were on an overnight trip I clean forgot to take my laptop with me! As Klm only gave us a Facebook or twitter contact,(we tried the phone number that was continuously engaged thus flattening my phone), we had no way of contacting the airline. The front desk staff said we could use their phone for one minute or open an account to use the phone in the room. They could not tell me how much the tariffs were but suggested that I make a 10 minute call and then see how much this would cost!that was the sum total of their help. Eventually we went back to the airport to try and sort our flights out.

The food for the evening was poor, not very warm. This was the end of a very stressful day so probably made it feel worse.

The next morning my wife met up with the operational manager who let her use his computer to help us. We thank him for his understanding and helpfullness, it is a shame the staff the previous night were not as tuned in to the issues that stranded passengers have.

Thank ful we had a dry, warm place to stay but would not recommend this hotel if you need any assistance.

I stayed at this hotel last week on business and have used NH reasonably frequently in the past elsewhere and found them to be reliable and good quality for the price.

The NH Schiphol has few redeeming features. The best aspect is the health facilities. It's unusual to get a hotel with squash courts, gym, pool and sauna.

However, the food and particularly the service in bars and restaurants was terrible, overlooked, tough meats, and cold. Service was slow and often grudging. We were not made to feel welcome. This was in sharp contrast to the Hilton at Schiphol where I stayed the week before.

Further more the 'free wifi' was glacial. Just about quick enough to download emails, but forget anything else.

The airport transfer service was fine, but with only 8 seats, it was pot luck if you are able to get on the bus you are aiming for.

I hope things improve as I may have to stay again.

My Girlfriend lost her glasses at this hotel. We sent them a mail to look after this item. They looked for, find the glasses in an another room and sent us the glasses.

They could have say we haven't found them, instead they've paid the shipping costs.. What a great staff!

Rooms are great and beds comfy, large buffet breakfast very good even though the items are the same each day.

only annoyance was the location (only mcdonalds close by) the area is hotels/offices.

Air conditioner was quite loud
