We would be staying at Holiday Inn Express at Zwaansvliet 20, very near the subway station Van Boshuizenstraat. Hotel advises us to take the train to Amsterdam Zuid, then change to Metro 51.
However I notice that Bus 199 actually go right pass it before reaching Amsterdam Zuid station. Someone in hotel review said the Bus 199 stop is next to the super market Jumbo which is literally around the corner south of the hotel.
Anyone local can give me some input on Bus 199? I understand the bus takes twice as long but then we dont have to deal with changing train to metro hassle. When you add the time of connection, it may not save more than 10 - 15 minutes in the journey.
