Yes, location is a little far out but the standard of accommodation is far higher than we could have afforded in the city centre. Trams are very frequent and easy.
Note: the tram tickets are valid for 24 hour periods not calendar days. Hotel reception advised us of this and it saved us a day's fare. So, we arrived on a Sunday at 2pm and left on a Wednesday at 12 noon (3 day tram pass covered it). The pass starts when it is first activated, not when you buy it.
Lots of umbrellas available in the lobby - we needed them!
Hotel is situated between 2 tram stations but only use Surenameplein as it's a nightmare walk from the other one!
If you leave your room for any reason (to get ice?) take your room key. Each corridor has excellent security with doors which require your key before they open. I got locked out and had to wait for other guests to let me back along the corridor! You also need your room key to activate the lift.
Lovely bathroom and very comfortable bed. Free and fast wifi. TV with plenty of international channels.
Hotel hosts quite a few conferences but that was no problem.
We booked a 'package' holiday with BA and were quite surprised to have to pay room/city tax at the hotel. Surely the tour operator should have included this?
Schipol airport is lovely - plenty of high quality food/retail options.
