We stayed at this hotel knowing that it wasn't close to the city center. The hotel has a shuttle that runs to the Schipol Airport every 30 or 45 mins, it seemed to alternate. From the airport you can catch the train or a bus into the city center. From the hotel to the airport to downtown (via train) took about an hour. The hotel isn't fancy at all, but it is clean. I don't think the elevator has a full bed. We asked for it, but got 2 singles, that we were able to push together. Wasn't a big deal for us. There is no elevator but there are only 2 floors. The free wifi didn't work at all in our room, we were on the second floor. The front desk only informed us that if it was working downstairs it should work everywhere - and that wasn't the case. One time I actually sat in the hallway outside my door to connect and it worked fine. The walls are pretty thin, but the doors are heavy. One morning there was a tour group leaving out early and we heard about 20 doors slamming while we were trying to stay sleep. There is a computer in the lobby for customer use with internet. We had one meal at the restaurant which was okay, but expensive, so we mostly ate while we were out. There is free parking, which is a plus. I only recommend this hotel for people who have a car and are okay with using the shuttle to the airport to catch transportation.
