I've stayed at this hotel many times whilst attending trade shows at the RAI, most recently last month
It's easy and cheap to get from Schipol by train and only a 3 minute walk from the station to the hotel (use the side entrance to avoid walking all the way round outside the hotel)
Reception is efficient and friendly, the rooms are always clean and comfortable although lacking in free bottled water.
Bar staff are excellent, and have been there for years. Bar food is pretty good too.
I no longer bother with breakfast as the service is poor and slow with a general lack of staff. Self service coffee doesn't work as the machines are too few and very slow. A few years ago it was a lot better.
