The hotel is very conveniently located near Schiphol airport and Central Station.The transport system is excellent. Trains from the airport to Bijlmer Arena station (where the hotel is) departs every 15 minutes, the journey is short and the hotel is located right next to the station. Thereafter the best way to travel to the centre of the city is by Metro, line 54 takes commuters to Central Station in about 15 minutes. The Metro is very convenient, easy to use, not too expensive and safe. Having a station right next to the hotel means that day trips for example to Rotterdam are also possible without any stress. Next to the hotel are found restaurants, bars, shops and a cinema. Of course anyone attending an event to the Arena or Music Hall will find the hotel perfectly located. The fact that the hotel was not in the city centre was not a problem due to the excellent transport available. The hotel 's staff were helpful, nice and relaxed (Like most Dutch, I found) , the family room was spacious, bathroom door which strangely was also the cupboard door did not shut properly but it was not too much of a problem. The hotel was quiet with absolutely no noise from the station. Breakfast was good but it does get very busy and can be a problem to find a table accommodating a family.The area felt safe. Taking everything into consideration including the price i would use this hotel again.
