Decided to visit Amsterdam for one night on way back from UK. Chose this property because it was close to the airport and offered free shuttle service. Since we were getting into AMS at 8:00 a.m. I emailed the hotel and asked if I could get early check-in. I had a prompt response indicating that they would be happy to do so as long as rooms were available. The hotel shuttle was right on time for pick up on the half hour at Schiphol. Check in was easy and we went right to the room and dropped our bags. Went back downstairs to catch the shuttle back to the airport to get the train to Amsterdam Centraal Station not realizing we had to reserve. One of the front desk agents had overheard us talking about it and figured we intended to do that so he had added our names to the reservation. Talk about anticipating and going out of his way to be of service! He also advised to get the train directly back to Hoofddorp so that we would not need to wait for the shuttle on our return. We took his advice and only had a 5 min walk from the station to the hotel.
We asked for a room on a low floor and so were given a first floor room. Although quite low we did not get any road noise (a factor that is a problem in many hotels). Room was fine, clean, and modern with plenty of electrical outlets so we could charge our phones etc without having to wait on each other. Bathroom had shower cream and shampoo in those containers that are attached to the shower wall and hand wash and moisturizer in attached containers near the sink. Wifi was available in the rooms as well as in the common areas and was quite strong.
The free breakfast the next morning was more than adequate. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, boiled eggs, cold meats, pastries, croissants, breads, yogurt, cereal, juice. I think they even had English breakfast beans. Impressed.
Check out was a breeze and the shuttle brought us back to the airport in plenty of time for our flight out. We will definitely stay at this property again and are very happy to recommend it if you are in the area.
