Hi there,

Whoops - count for 70-80 euro or about. Taxis are not the cheapest way of transport over here.

Fri and Sat night there might be night buses, however...

All the best,

The last bus actually leaves at 01:05 from Centraal Station.(Arriva service 110). Indeed on Saturday into Sunday and Sunday into Monday mornings there is the 210 bus from Arriva.

According to my trusty taxi calculator the fare should be less than 55 euros on the meter to the hotel. Still a hefty price though.

What on earth possesed you to pick this hotel to visit Amsterdam? It's hardly convenient at? It will take you 40 minutes each way to get to and from Amsterdam and over an hour to get from the airport.

Bad choice indeed. it's not even in the center of Volendam which would be better, but in the middle of nowhere.

Van der Valk hotels are ok but it is like staying at a motorway service station near Luton to visit London every day.

What a facile comment. Who is this Amsterdam expert??? Please recommend me a motorway service station hotel anywhere in and around London for the same price with the same facilities. I will gladly book it.
