"Nice hotel at AMS airport"
This is one of the nicest airport on the AMS airport platform, offering all facilities you expect from a modern 4* hotel, with a very professional and friendly staff. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed.
"Disappointing room, and misleading gym photos!"
I travel to Amsterdam monthly and for a change booked into the Radisson Blu Schiphol, mainly because I was looking for a hotel with a decent gym. I checked the website, and was impressed by the equipment in the photos of the gym. My room rate was 340 euros for 2 nights, room only. First impressions were good - check in staff were pleasant and the lobby area is nice. However, my room was very disappointing. Old, tired, with chipped furniture, and peeling wallpaper on 2 walls and the ceiling. The bathroom was grubby (I actually cleaned the bath prior to running one!), and there was a chocolate bar wrapper on the floor of the room. Not a great impression, and more akin to a budget hotel than a so-called high end hotel. I went to visit the gym and was disappointed to find that it was nothing like the photos on the website. It was small, and I was told that "it used to be much bigger" but it's recently "halved in size". There were 3 treadmills, but none of the weights equipment I'd booked the hotel on the strength of. Breakfast was fine, but 25 euros, so not cheap! Dinner was also ok - I had a burger and a bowl of soup, and a glass of beer for 45 euros.. Check out was efficient, but I left with the impression that front of house looks good, but my room, and the facilities available (specifically the gym) were lacking. Disappointing.
"Stop over before a cruise"
Location is just a few minutes from airport with free shuttle, with free transfer to airport for a train ride downtown. Very convenient and a lot cheaper than a hotel of that quality in the center of the city.
I stayed in this hotel just for a night but it was quite a comfortable stay. The business class room was quite spacious and comfortable. The washroom will indeed catch your attention. This is a it far from the Airport but they have 24/7 shuttle service for pick and drop to the airport. At times it might take about 30 mins to reach the hotel/airport as they also have two other drop points in-between. The pick up point at the airport can be easily located. if you need a shuttle at odd hours, you need to make a request at the reception and they arrange it accordingly. Just remember that there are no shops or foodmarts near to the hotel so you need to get it on your way back to the hotel or rely solely on the hotel hospitality. Overall a nice stay!
"It's not as bad as mentioned"
Before I went to the hotel with my friend, I read the reviews here and was anxious about the shuttle, but in fact, it wasn't that bad, we wait in a room with chairs and a TV showing us when the bus will arrive, it wasn't really a hard/long journey. The rooms were clean and comfortable It is mostly a business hotel, most of visitors were on business so it basically was quite and classy. Staff were polite. Be careful though about ordering anything from the hotel service, as you have to pay a tax over almost everything. On my last day, while checking out, I paid a 100 € over tax only, and that was unexpected and I knew nothing about that till they showed me a paper. So ask information about that while you check IN !! Other than that.. it is recommended, and we had a lovely stay!
