We arrived on 3rd October at 12 noon via train from the airport,2 hours before check in. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Our room on the 6th floor was immaculate and modern. A corner room with an expanse of windows. Comfy beds, coffee machine,hair dryer, complimentary soap, shower gel, shampoo, wash mit, shower cap, shoe shine & sewing kit. The room has a uk 3 pin plug socket & 2 usb charger points. ( we didn't need our adaptors) free safe free wifi and computers for guest use in the lobby. There is no licensed bar at the hotel but they serve breakfast 7-11am and have a restaurant. We generally ate out. The tram stop 2 is right outside the hotel and run 6 minutes apart. Tickets can be purchased at the hotel vending machine. We paid 17 euros per person for 72 hours of travel. Trams run from 06.00- 00.25 from central Amsterdam back to the hotel. The trip is approximately 30 minutes from hotel to Central station.
I recommend getting off the tram outside of the central area as the restaurants are excellent and less costly. Nice shops and cafes too.
The Van Gogh museum & Bansky museum are on this tram line.
Be prepared for lots of walking. We clocked up almost 20 miles in 3 days. We loved it in Amsterdam. The people are so friendly and speak English flawlessly.
Check out is at 12 noon and there is a baggage room for customer use. Taxis to the airport via the hotel are a fixed price of 35 euros. Quite expensive. We booked an UBER cab for 20 euros and waited just 5 minutes. The journey was 15 minutes. It's a 15 minute walk to the train station and 4 euros per person via train to the airport.
Be warned don't leave it too late to get to the airport even with hand luggage only. Security took over an hour. All passengers short or ling haul queue together. All persons body scanned and then long queues for passport control. We arrived with 2.5 hours to spare. Check in complete and hand luggage only. We only had 30 minutes to spare before boarding. This was a Thursday evening. Schiphol Airport is vast. We had a wonderful trip and loved the hotel. Really quiet and comfortable. Thank you. We will be returning. less
