Transport - Airport to City Center

My wife and I arrive Saturday morning. We are staying at the Renaissance (marriott) Hotel. We will each have two medium or large bags.

How much would a taxi cost? How long will it take?

What are other options, considering we will have heavy luggage?

The Connexxion shuttle or Schiphol travel taxi will be cheaper and drop you at the door. Not as quick as a direct taxi but the choice is there for you.

Connexxions shuttle is indeed a very convenient - and cheaper than a taxi. We have used them on several occasions (our first few trips, and once last July, when staying out of the main city area) but usually use the train as it is faster than a taxi/shuttle and just as easy, plus much cheaper.

The station is directly below the main concourse - tickets can be bought in the concourse at machines or at the station desk; there are lifts and escalators to get below to the plateforms, and trains to centraal station are every few minutes. Cost is 3.80e per person each way. The walk to your hotel is just short, we often stay around there, and manage to pull cases as well as hubby managing to push me in my wheelchair too. It is do-able and not a real hassle.

Have a great trip whatever way you get to your hotel.
