Around a 5 minutes walk from arrivals at Schipol airport. It is well signposted once outside of arrival hall 4 with covered walkways. Trains at Schipol take 10minutes to Amsterdam Central station and 30 minutes to Rotterdam.
Next to the bed is a desk which is also has the bed side table that offers ability to work on computer and this is where the hotel offer two free bottles of water. There is convenient plug socket on the side of bed plus a large pull out drawer to place hand luggage or clothing.
There are two circular pods that offer mood lightning in each – any colour you wish that you select from the IPad plus specific mood such as romance, movie, party, business (lights and TV do a show etc)- creates a nice ambience for whatever mood takes you.A curtain can be pulled aside from bed to the the two pods. One is a shower in which operates once doors are closed, rain shower and separate head is offered. Amenities include two large bottles of shampoo or shower gel. All works fine and water leaks into floor due to efficient drainage system. The other pod is the toilet that frosted glass for privacy if you are with someone. There is a sink inside room and a shelf with both Euro and UK plugs easy to place your bathroom products.
An open wardrobe is located by door with coat hangers plus a safe below that could fit some small items. Overall the room is superb for an overnight stay between flights and beats the expensive prices of city centre. However things can go wrong if your iPad is dead. So highly recommend leaving it in the dock.
The hotel operates a remote check in system via self service machines, it’s very much like checking into a flight but without having to provide ID etc. You can select which side of building you want and add on extras such as breakfast or late check out. Staff are there though to help.
The hotel has free very fast wifi. Able to download a 300mb file within 10 minutes. This is open non- secure so multiple devices can be used throughout the hotel.
Business facilities include 4 Apple Mac computers and some meeting rooms.
Catering includes a large bar and coffeeshop with food options. Self service canteen style. Breakfast is quite nice and healthy but a good selection of hot (scrambled egg, boiled egg, tomatoes) and cold (muesli, yogurts, fruit, cheese, salmon etc).
There is also a shop that has really cool items everything from mini cocktail sets, ‘lovers kit”, phone cables note pads even colour changing umbrellas- all very boutique and interesting art.
There is also lot of lounge seating which i notice people sit on computers and work from. Plus outside seating for those that smoke. Also for those needing to Iron, there is a dedicate room for ironing.
Staff are really friendly and chilled out, I managed to be able to check-in at 830am without a fee which was great after a flight from China. They even offered me any free drink from the bar. I had some issues in the evening , the iPad dock wasn’t charging and the toilet was making a lot of noise – all were resolved and managed well with manager without even requesting offering me a free breakfast & late check out. Despite the issues I give them 5 stars because of the commitment the staff have to customer service & the fact the room is simply awesome and better than staying in crazy Amsterdam on a Saturday night. Will definitely come again.
