"Convenient & Comfortable"
On our latest trip to Amsterdam we decided to stay much closer to the airport than previous visits. This hotel is located within approximately 10 minutes shuttle ride of the main airport (which is huge!!). There is a shuttle service that runs to this hotel as well as others nearby & the car rental depots. The rooms are clean & spacious with our twin room more than adequate for 2 of us for a 2 night stay. Breakfast is excellent with a large choice of items including, Smoked Salmon, Scrambled/Fried eggs as well as a wide array of juices & other more continental options which are all beautifully presented. I found the toast machine a bit hard to get to grips with & someone fell victim to this on our second morning to the loud sound of the fire alarm ringing in my ears. The hotel has an excellent gym setup although we chose to just make use of the Sauna & Steam Room which offered a much needed wake up for us both after the first night out in town. Getting back to the airport, which is where the rail link in to Amsterdam is located is easy via the Shuttle Service although you will need the shuttle tickets provided by reception. The train takes around 15-20 minutes to reach the centre from the airport although a taxi ride back to the hotel will cost you considerably more so plan your return to the hotel well if you want to avoid this. All in all the hotel was pretty good value for money & the chain runs a loyalty scheme called 'Club Carlson' which allowed me to offset some of my points for a reduced room rate. If you are looking for convenience close to the airport & don't mind a 1/2 hour trip to the centre of Amsterdam then this is definitely a hotel for you to consider.
We stayed one night at this hotel in May. There is a free shuttle that runs between the hotel and airport which is needed if you want to travel by train (station is at the airport). The bus is about every 20 mins between 6am and 11.30 pm after that by request. There is a screen on the lowest floor telling you the wait until the next bus. You must get tickets from reception when travelling to the airport but you do not need tickets from the airport to the hotel. Staff on the whole were all amazing so friendly with superb english. Rooms are large and well equipped with lots of thoughtful little touches in the main room and bathroom. Three lifts that are spacious and fast although the doors close quickly. Breakfast was substantial with a huge hot and continental selection including bacon a variety of eggs sausages cheese ham smoked salmon and so much more all delicious. My only gripe with the hotel as such was the price of drinks in the bar which were high, but then the quality of service was also high. I would definitely stay here again but probably avoid the bar.
"Cosy and friendly "
The room is good in size. The facility is quite standard. The breakfast buffet is awesome. That fresh orange juice squeezer is interesting. Staff is very welcoming and friendly as they will approach you and offer assistance with coffee machine and had a little chat about how you feel about their service. Very nice
"Ideal for a short night before an early flight"
The reason for my booking was the arrival at Schiphol with a European flight at 9pm, and a long haul flight due at 10 am the next morning. It was just very good for what we needed. A spacey room, a kingsize comfortable bed and a bathroom with all amenities. A Shuttle bus service every 20 to 30 minutes to and from the airport taking about 15 minutes. The tasty light meal late at night in the restaurant and a beautiful fresh breakfast buffet at 6am the next morning were perfect. Service and quality very good. Another practical service which helped us so much was the option to leave our two heavy suitcases prepared for the last flight a few days earlier. The hotel has a secure store room and provides labels with tickets for easy retrieval when needed. All in all a very good option when needing quality rest beween flights.
"Perfect for purpose"
Arrived late for a full days meeting out in the Schiphol district. Hotell reception checked me in an staff was very polite and I felt welcome. I got a suite with good space and large windows. Hotel was quiet and I had a good nights sleep. Bathroom with separate tub and shower. Bar with with nice lounge area and perfect relaxing environment. Breakfast was perfect.
