5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

ideally located just 10 mins drive from schiphol by free hotel bus/taxi. Rooms were very large and of a high standard. We had a lovely meal in the hotel which was very well priced - staff were friendly and helpfull - also free wifi in hotel

I have stayed at a number of Schipol airport hotels and this time chose it as it was one of the cheapest in its star rating and because it has free, quick and regular shuttle service connecting to airport and trains to city centre. ( some of the others charge! ) The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable but don't expect fancy toiletries. The hotel is undergoing renovation/building work to its public areas so facilities are limited to a rather impersonal and slightly clinical temporary coffee and breakfast area. Not a hotel to spend a lot of time in but one for ease of access and good nights sleep

They should have closed this hotel for repair. Insteadchanging it while keeping it open. When I was there it was full, bus loads of tourists arriving, blocking the entire (reduced) reception area and overwhelming the pitiful restaurant, bar and other amenities. Literally the bar is 4 feet long, the restaurant is in a corridor and the only other place for miles is a vending maching in reception that was mostly empty.

Shuttle from schipol was good, but its clear that there is nothing around this hotel at all except an industrial estate, no public transport (almost unheard of in the Netherlands), nothing.

Only pick this hotel if you have no other airport choice, at least till they finish the repair

We had flown in from Chicago, USA and we were tired as we knew we would be so we had reservations close to the airport. It was OK. They were under construction in the lobby to renovate it so it wasn't a really welcoming site. Our check in was good and the room was OK too. We had breakfast included with the price and it was good. It had both hot and cold fare. The room was satisfactory but certainly not a four star. There were only two stations in English on the TV. They had robes and slippers which were needed as there was no carpet to walk on and the floors were cold. Overall, if I needed a hotel close to the airport I might stay again. But, I wouldn't recommend it for any kind of long stay.

We stayed there for one night due to work location. The hotel would be perfect for people flying early in the morning or need an overnight stay between the flights. The shuttle runs between 5.30am (i think) to 11.30pm, will not be convenient for travelers who have flights i between those hours.

By public transport, it's difficult to get there or anywhere else without taking longer than 30 minutes. The free shuttle service could bring you to and from the airport every 30 minutes, from the airport you can take the train to the cities you need to go to. Would not stay here if Amsterdam is where you want to visit every day.

This is the only hotel we have stayed in Netherlands which allow 2pm late check out. Well done! Most hotels want you out by 10am, some 12noon without allowing for late check out. The front office and cleaning staffs are very friendly.

The standard room is not spacious but enough for one night or two. There is no view or anything fancy.

Hotel charges breakfast at Euro20 per head, if you want to save the money, take the shuttle and eat something at the airport and then back to hotel. If it was not included in my room rate, wouldn't have paid that money for the breakfast. There is nothing else around the hotel (walking distance) where you can eat to do leisure stuffs.

Wireless signal is not strong but you get free cable internet in the room.

Room Tip: Double room bed is bit tight for two and too soft to have a good night sleep when the other person m...

The Park Plaza has a complimentary Airport Shuttle that runs every 30 mins. They gave perfect instructions as to where and when to catch their shuttle. Even though the hotel is undergoing some renovation, it is nicely covered up and not obstructive at all. My room was spacious, crisp, and very clean. The internet hook up in the room was not working at first, but the staff came to work on the problem right away. We realized it was not compatible with my Macbook, so the staff recommended I call the internet help line from the room phone. Once I connected with an operator and ran through the steps and settings, I was connected in 2 minutes! I can not say enough good things about how nice and helpful the staff was. The hotel also has a complimentary breakfast, which was tasty as well. Overall, this hotel is the perfect night's stay for an airport layover.

The hotel is a modern one, clean and attractive. The rooms are very spacious, the bathroom is also quite large but the bathroom's door is made of glass which can be a little unpleasant, even if you travel as a couple.

Dear vvv36,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review with regard to your stay at the hotel. It is a pity that we were not able to exceed your expectations. We are in the middle of quite an extensive refurbishment of all our public areas, so hopefully we will exceed your expectations as of the 1st of May when the soft redo is ready. I look forward to welcoming you back in the hotel!
Kind regards, Maarten Arlman, Hotel Manager Park Plaza Amsterdam Airport.
