Although this hotel is a little way out from the centre you can pick up the number 48 bus immediately outside. It is easy to get to from the airport by train to Sloterdijk (10 mins) then the 48 bus to Hempoint. Don't get off at the stop the same name as the street Spaarndammerdijk as it's a bit of a walk. We got the bus ticket for 72 hours costs 16.50 for unllimted use on buses, trams and metro. You can buy this at the hotel. The number 48 also takes you straight into the centre in 10 minutes. Remember to check out when leaving any transport or your ticket will be blocked for 1 hour. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a fantastic room which was really lovely and very comfortable. The breakfast was very good with plenty of options available to cover everyones needs.
You can buy tickets for most attractions from reception which saves time queuing. If you are going to the Anne Frank house buy your tickets online at least a week in advance before travelling as the queues were so long. We waited nearly 3 hours and each time we went past it the queues were the same length. The silly thing was there was only one till to take payment which held things up. A trip on the canals is highly receommended.
The hotel was lovely and the staff fantastic, especially Bruno on reception who made our stay unforgettable. It may not be in the centre but only 10 minutes oin the bus and you're there. The trams when in the centre were very good, frequent and reliable.
