    comfortable cabin for overnight stay

    by

    about 2x3 m cabin with comfortable bed and excellent facilities. check-in is fast, helpful staff, and wireless internet in the cabin. unless you have bigger-than-usual luggage, the cabin is just about fit to accept anything from cabin bag to small things like putting your cellular and eyewear.
    i get my cabin at about the end of the corridor so i have no complain regarding noise or people walking down the corridor. a minor problem is that yotel is located after the passport control so it will be a challenge when there is a long line at the desk. if you have a luggage stored at the locker room, you will need to go back and forth thru the passport control. stamp in to yotel, stamp out to go to locker room, check in and stamp in again to departure area.
    i will recommend yotel to other people but with note to first-timer since it's not easy to find it at the lounge 2 upper floor with not so many signage at the airport building.

    Unique Quality: fast check in. comfortable bed. free wireless internet.

    Directions: schiphol airport terminal, lounge 2, upper floor.

Train from London

by rickd11

Will be flying into London (from NYC) with a three hour layover, before heading to Brussels.
My question is that I also plan to go to Amsterdam and considering taking the train from London. Would it be easier to just take the train from London and avoid the layover. Also, would you recommend a train straight to Amsterdam or is there better service going to Brussels and then Amsterdam. We plan to spend time in Brussels and Bruge, but thought Amsterdam would be a good first stop. We are flying to England because my daughter will be going to school there next semester and we need to fly American because we're using points.

Thanks, Rick

There is no train from London to Amsterdam. There is a train from London to Brussels, and from Brussels there are trains to Amsterdam...
(Have a look at a map :-)
To find out about train timetables (so you know if what you are considering makes sense) just use the excellent trip planner on the German Railways' website:

Re: Train from London

by GrumpyDiver

The Eurostar has direct links from London to Paris (Calais, Lille and some service to EuroDisney) and Brussels. Connections to the rest of Europe will have to be made from one of these stations.

A three hour layover is not a lot of time. You are going to lose at least half that time just deplaning, getting to your connection, etc. By the time time you picked up your luggage and got into London proper to catch the train, you won't have saved any time.

In your case, seeing that you are going to end up in Brussels anyways, why not go to Amsterdam from there.

Re: Train from London

by angiebabe

you could check out eurostars website for the train prices for the dates you are looking at. booking ahead they can be quite cheap and can be bought as one ways in either direction. www.eurostar.com

- and its quite easy to go get from Heathrow to Kings Cross St Pancras where the Eurostar departs from - or vice versa - you have to be there 45 mins before departure as with

train service around Belgium is pretty good and so is the Netherlands.

you could check out www.easyjet.com to consider flying back from Amsterdam without using your American points if they are as cheap as they can be during your dates.

Re: Train from London

I'd just do the layover and fly to Brussels. As a poster says, by the time you have deplaned and done all the rest, you'll not have much time left over. You are a few years too early for the train to Amsterdam from London - the Germans are just now testing a train to run from London to Amsterdam direct but it is still in the testing stages.....

If you decide to go the Eurostar route, then remember that Eurostar operates fares a bit like a budget airline i.e. the earlier you book, the cheaper the fare. Or rather, the heap fares are issued early and are snapped up pretty quickly. I think fares are released 120 days prior to date of travel but not sure.

Train travel between Brussels and Amsterdam is easy. No advance reservations needed. There are several trains per day.

Happy travels!

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Emergency

by heryanta

The emergency number to remember in Amsterdam (their equivalent to US' 911) is 112

They, like most people in Holland, speak English. You just need to remember to speak slower than usual as it's not their first language; which I know can be hard in emergency situations.

A list of Dutch words that might be handy in emergency situations:

Police = politie (po-lit-see)
Fire Department = brandweer (brand-weir)
Hospital = ziekenhuis (seek-en-haus)
Doctor = huisarts (haus-arts)
Dentist = tandarts (tand-arts)

No need 2 take food&drink it is cheap & plentiful

by KatieLouise

I love the people , the energy and the experiences that being there seems to throw at you. A silly night in a club in Rembrantsplein it was ladies night and myself and Jo could drink for free (we did A LOT) but the boys had to pay to drink and to use the bathrooms. Jo and I very very amused all night - the boys less so. :-)

Take a tour on the canals,...

by Luis_Alberto

Take a tour on the canals, they are a great way to see life in the old part of the city. Visit the RIJKSMUSEUM, one of the greatest museums of Europe. The people are kind and charming, I have met some great friends in this city.

Tour the Red Light District

by Paul2001

In no other city in Europe is the Red Light District approach such notoriety and in no other city would likely to find so many people touring such a district without actually intending to purchase any of the merchandise. Such is the fame of Amsterdam's Red Light District. Tourist flock to it just to have a look and to awestruck by the sight of seeing half naked young women standing behind a storefront window revealing their assets. The sight of this is quite surprising at first if you are not prepared for. I was walking and checking out my city map when I glanced up and saw this scantly clad young lady jesturing to me for attention. The neighborhood does not seem that extraordinary at first as it flanks two canals, the Vooburgwal and Achterburgwal, that crisscross each other. It is the famed window brothels that quickly gather your attention and the sight of seeing hundreds of women selling themselves in this manner is quite remarkable regardless of what you might think morally.
There is a down side to the Red Light District. It is also the main scene for Amsterdam quantitative drug trade. Not just pot but heroin and cocaine can be bought here. This makes the neighborhood dangerous after dark and a no go if you are alone.

MORE INFO SECOND PAGE OF THE A'DAM PASS.

by eden_teuling

You can see here in the picture where you can bye the pass but let me mention the places here too:

VVV Tourist Office: Stationsplein 10 opposite the Central RW Station, at your left hand side

IN the Central Station on platform 2 (VVV)

VVV in the Leidsestraat 1 (in the city)

Holland Tourist Information AMSTERDAM AIRPORT SCHIPHOL at ARRIVAL HALL 2

VVV KOESTRAAT 9 PURMEREND (out of Amsterdam)

VVV Gedempte gracht 76 ZAANDAM (out of Amsterdam) In the picture you can also see WHICH restaurants and WHICH attractions give you the 25% discount.......not all do.

Think before you buy: when e.g. you buy a 3 day PASS you have to make use of all is has to offer DURING THE 3 DAYS you have the card.....You buy one and the first time you use it e.g. to go by Tram to your hostel or hotel the 3 days start!
Pay attention to weekends and Dutch National holidays etc. and special events you want to visit!

Perhaps also nice to use the card to travel (15 min) to Haarlem or Rotterdam......

BUT you will save some 100 Euros during 3 CONSECUTIVE DAYS.......

You can also rent a bike for 3 consec. days.....

read the brochure before deciding....
