Dorint Sofitel Amsterdam-Airport: The nicest hotel I have ever stayed in

This hotel is located in a new business district of Schiphol, 10 minutes away from the airport by bus. There's a free shuttle bus to and from the airport every half an hour. Make sure to be in front of the hotel early at peak times, sometimes all seats in the bus are taken and you have to wait for the next one. Especially at weekends it's hard to get away from the hotel otherwise.

The hotel seems to be rather new. I was mighty impressed with the stylish lobby and the comfy rooms and beds.

-------------------
In 2006 I stayed in another nice airport hotel, the NH. You can read about it on my Hoofddorp page.

This hotel is probably the nicest I have ever stayed in. It's got **** stars but offers good rates if you are lucky. We paid just 70 € for a double room (excluding breakfast).

Using the very stylish wellness area (with sauna, solarium, fitness centre and a pool which unfortunately was a bit too cold) is included in this price.

Internet usage is free as well, there's a small internet cafe near the reception.

Mercure Hotel Amsterdam Schiphol Airport: Another excellent choice for overnight stays

The Mercure hotel chain has many hotels in The Netherlands and are of very good name. Again a shuttlebus will transport you and your luggage to the frontdoor and the next day (if necessary later) back to the terminal.

IBIS Budget Hotel Amsterdam Airport: IBIS budget

This hotel is comparable with the Formule 1 hotels in France. Small, but well equipped; good enough for a one night sleep. It used to be an ETAP hotel, but was bought by the Accor group and it has been renamed into IBIS budget. There is a genuine IBIS hotel next door.

You can use the IBIS Shuttlebus to go to the Airport terminal.

Hotel Ibis: Close to the airport

I spent 7 nights in this hotel in November-December of 1995.
Ibis Amsterdam Airport is a hotel located in Badhoevedorp, close to Schiphol International Airport (free shuttle service from 4:30 to 1:30am). Just 30 mins from the center of Amsterdam, it's ideal for a business trip or vacation.
It has 644 non-smoking rooms, 3 restaurants, 24h bar, terrace area, 4 meeting rooms for seminars & conferences, Wi-Fi Internet access & private pay parking.
Inviting, modern and cozy, with a comfortable bed and a functional bathroom. The Ibis room has got everything you need for a pleasant stay.

Take highway A13 in the direction of Delft. Follow the signs Leiden/ Amsterdam, which takes you onto the A4. Once on the A4 follow the signs Utrecht / Amstelveen, which takes you onto the A9. On the A9 take exit Aalsmeer. Turn right at the traffic lights. Go straight ahead and turn right again at the third traffic lights. Hotel Ibis Amsterdam Airport is situated on the left hand side.

You can watch my 3 min 55 sec Video Amsterdam Schiphol Hotel Ibis out of my Youtube channel.

Standard Room
This Ibis room is modern and welcoming and will exceed all your expectations. It features a bathroom, modern decor, a comfortable box spring bed with duvet, free WIFI, ADSL (paying) and a flat-screen TV with international channels.
There's nothing like a hearty balanced breakfast to start the day. Enjoy the Ibis all you can eat buffet breakfast with fresh pastries, fair trade coffee, fruit juice, pancakes, tortillas...and much more.

Dorint Sofitel - Amsterdam Airport: Has all the extras

While I would not recommend this hotel for the average family vacation, for the business traveler, it offers all the little extras. Free shuttle bus to/from airport, 24 hr place to eat, sound resistant rooms, high speed internet access in rooms, free wireless access in lobby & bar, along with all of the normal things you would expect from a 4 star hotel.

The down side is the decor, very sparse and cold feeling. They won't even put a Christmas tree up during the holidays. The rooms, look like a cheap cabin on a cruise ship.

However the staff's warmth make up for the lack of decor. Very friendly, helpful, and multi-lingual.

If you want to take a day off and see the city, free shuttle to town run a couple of times a day.

If you wish to hang out in the hotel you can swim in the indoor pool, work out in the gym, or even have a massage. If you are lucky enough to get a room facing the back, you can watch the ships go by.

NH Schiphol: Great Airport Hotel

Excellent, friendly and hyper efficient check-in - they let me check in to my room at 10:30am and never charged me extra!

The room was huge with a nice big bed.

The restaurant was not open when I was there but meals were served in the bar. The menu was a bit restricted, but the food was good.

The breakfast buffet was a very reasonable 16 euros with plenty choice.

Well priced for its convenient location.
