  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Location
  • Noice from airplanes
  • (Families with young children)
Very good hotel to rest.
  • + Very good Bed and very confortable room with all you need. There s no noise and it s made for family weekends.
  • We waited a little bit to check in. The door is closed after midnight, you have to call to open the door. The roads are new and it wasn t simple to get to the adress with the GPS.
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Comfortable bed Reasonable close to Schiphol without paying over 200 euros per night Restaurant next door Free Parking
  • Route description online insufficient. Navigation system leads you on the new part of the 201 and there is no exit to hotel. Very frustrating. Room was very hot (23Celcius) and climate control didn t seem to work. (didn t seem to be able to cool it down - had to open windows) Planes are coming pretty close and are pretty loud - you will need earplugs - but that is no big deal to me.
  • * my tip Look before you go - make sure you take the most southern fork of the 201 because that has the exit you will need for the hotel.
  • (Older couples)
Lovely, quiet, clean, and friendly.
  • + Wonderfully appointed hotel with many interesting art works. Having just come from Italy, this hotel was a WELCOME relief. Clean, large, well working bathroom, quiet (despite proximity to airport) , good food and drink, and friendly helpful staff.
  • No easy access to Amsterdam.
  • * my tip Excellent bar and restaurant, with outside seating as well.

Very enjoyable stay both times we stayed.
  • + Very nice hotel with auto parking away from the high traffic areas. We enjoyed our first night in Europe after a long flight. After touring Europe for three weeks we stayed three more nights before our flight home. Restaurant is excellent.
  • It can be a little noisy from the air traffic, but we adjusted quickly.

  • (Other)
Good value for the money
  • + Very friendly staff and the hotel has a very cosy invoriment Good bed = good sleep
  • (Friends)
Useful and comfortable.
  • + On the plus points the bed was very comfortable, the location was very quiet and the staff were very helpful. We ate in the resturant for lunch and the food was good. Breakfast was plentiful and hot.
  • On the negative points I had alerted the hotel that I would be arriving in the early hours of the morning and had requested transport. The hotel did not communicate with me so we spent a good half an hour looking for the transport and when I did telephone the hotel I was given instructions which required going back through the airport to a different entrance/exit from the arrivals one. On arrival at the hotel the reception desk was shut and the driver of the transport supplied the room key.

  • (Other)
Lovely hotel in a quiet area close to the airport.
  • + Lovely hotel, beautiful large room in a very nice and quiet area.
  • (Families with older children)
not worth staying
  • + very nice room
  • terrible shuttle service. It also costs $ to use this poor transportation. The hotel is 60 euro from Amsterdam *by cab...and remote. So you rely on the stuttle unless you are driving your own vehicle. Would not stay again
  • (Families with young children)
Nice, Clean Quiet hotel
  • Could not get the wireless to work.
  • (Travelling alone)
Sweet atmosphere, great stay
  • + the bathroom and room were both lovely the restaurant and staff were excellent, the woman running the breakfast room was particularly nice.. :D
  • the free wifi doesn't work very well from the jr suite upstairs.. too far from the wifi.. you need more power :)
  • * my tip this was a lovely option for being close to the airport to leave the country the next day, but still with a charming feeling of a small Inn. the shuttle service was great :D
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Charming small hotel with full service restaurant and lounge. The food was great and the room rivaled those of much more expensive luxury hotels. I enjoyed experiencing Aalsmere and seeing how it was different from cities.
  • Near airport but more than 15-20 minutes away by car or shuttle. Extra charge for shuttle to and from airport
  • (Other)
  • the TV didn t work correct
  • (Older couples)
A surprise chillout hotel close to Schiphol Airport
  • + Enjoyed the location and the smaller size of the hotel compared with the larger hotels close to Schiphol Airport
  • Maybe a little tired... but that could be quickly rectified without too much trouble.
  • * my tip Access the hotel from Schiphol Airport, and not Amsterdam.
  • (Older couples)
A good hotel, but not quite as convenient as you might think.
  • + We really enjoyed the food in the restaurant, it was well cooked and presented
  • We would have liked breakfast to be included in an optional price. Also when we booked it stated there was a shuttle service between the airport. However you do not make it clear how to obtain the shuttle.( I sent an email to you asking this a day or so before we arrived.) Also you charge for the shuttle which I think you should make far more obvious when booking. I only found out on reading Trip Advisor. In our experience hotels provide a free shuttle service.
  • * my tip there is a bus service which will take you into Alsmeer and a connection for Amsterdam it would have been helpful if the hotel could have provided us with more detail on this and even a map of Aalsmeer which has some local attractions
  • (Families with older children)
  • + Spaceous rooms. Nice bathroom. Lovely beds.
  • No family rooms available which means it becomes pricey for a family with two kids. We thought it was closer to the Flower auction place. The street the hotel is on is very long and from the website it is difficult to see where exactly the hotel is located. Walking to the Flora flower auction premises proved too far.
  • * my tip Make sure you visit the Flora flower auction premises! When you come by bicycle (like we did) make sure you have got a lock with you because the cycle storage is accessible to outsiders.
  • (Families with older children)
nice interior, good breakfast, not so far from the airport
  • + nice interior, good breakfast, airport shuttle
  • Junior Suite: A little too small for 3 adults Sofa bed is uncomfortable (a real bed is a lot better) By check in: the sofabed was not yet made, there were only 2 bath towels 1 pack of bath gel per person is (at least for me) not enough, and there's no hand soap We should have been able to order the airport shuttle beforehand, so we didn't have to take a taxi from the airport to the hotel
  • * my tip no
  • (Other)
Keep your confirmation and beware of fold out beds
  • + Room was nicely laid out and spacious. Breakfast was generous.
  • 1. Although we had paid for breakfast with our booking, the receptionist initially insisted that this was not possible. Only after I showed her the confirmation did she accede. Attitude was questionable. 2. To call this hotel an "airport hotel" is a bit of a stretch. It is a pretty long ride to the airport. Also, an airport hotel should provide free shuttle services both ways. Most other airport hotels do. 3. One of the beds creaked so much we had to take the mattress off a
  • * my tip Don't ask for a triple room. The third bed is inadequate. Also, keep your confirmation in case the 'free breakfast" is challenged. And beware of the free one way only shuttle.
  • (Friends)
Great local hotel with facilities and very high standard of room.
  • + Great location for flower markets and Aalsmeer in general. Lovely hotel with a local feel. Not surrounded just by other hotels.
  • Rooms very hot at night.
  • (Other)
Excellent hotel and its location was a great help.
  • + Easy parking and reasonable access to the major roads ment that i could use the hotel as a hub for 3 nights rather than a different hotel each night. A unique hotel that will register when i think of Holland, not another "concrete box" that leave you feeling that you are "anywhere but home"
  • no room service and resturant not able to charge meals to the room.
  • (Older couples)
  • + Rooms are good and clean
  • I had the greatest trouble using the internet for mail. The internet works well, but an overzealous IT person has shut down all firewalls. I use mail services outside internet, and am used to making a VPN backdoor, but even this didn't work, which is a level of security no hotel ever needs. It's more for a military base. So, please loosen up on the locking of services.
  • (Young couples)
truly Holland experience, away from tourist`s path
  • + exceeded all expectations- 5* hotel rooms!!!
  • hard to get there from Amsterdam (except by taxi)
  • (Other)
Stay Here!
  • + This is a lovely hotel! The staff is gracious, especially the bar manager who was fun, engaging and took pity on the fact that we had not had any dinner! They offer a fantastic breakfast (Not included in the price of your stay but worth it!) We arrived late and had booked the wrong room (twin beds instead of double) and they changed it right away, no problem. Shuttle is handy and on time. Very wonderful!
  • The hotel is 18 km from Amsterdam, tucked into a lovely little village, where there is no late night "scene", including dinner past 10:00, when we arrived. The shuttle is available 24-7 though, so you can take that in to the Airport and train or bus it to Amsterdam. The shuttle location at the airport to the hotel was a bit confusing. It would help if the location of the shuttle was given in the email confirmation. It is free once, then after that $16 euros.
  • (Travelling alone)
Appealing looks and pretty location near Schiphol
  • + Clean, very comfortable and in a pretty location
  • We were overcharged for our meal.
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + charming outside and the canals
  • only the first pickup by the shuttle was free. What the hell kind of free airport shuttle is this? I know they must have it written in the small print somewhere, but that's strange not include even the return trip. Breakfast was ok at best, yet not included. During my stay I heard a major argument with another customer who was upset about lack of airconditioning and wifi. The response of the hotel managers to everything seemed to be, "that's just the way it is, don't like it, go somewhere else"
  • (Young couples)
Nice food shame about the heating!
  • + Beautiful restaurant, had a lovely meal, bar staff very attentive.
  • Room was so cold we had to keep coats on for a while, was -3 outside. The air temp in our room was 16! Apparently they forgot to put heat on in our room. We asked to move room and was told hotel was full. We were then given a extra duvet and sheet, which we had to put on ourselves and the staff did not seem to care. Was so cold next morning, even the carpet was cold it felt uncomfortable to walk on. we had to put towels on the bathroom floor to take the chill out of the cold tiles! I have stayed in alot of hotels worldwide but have never encountered this type of room temp before.
  • (Travelling alone)
  • + Nice area. Nice big room and bath. More charm than some of the other hotels near the airport. Free wireless.
  • Sometimes bothersome noise from airport.
  • (Travelling alone)

  • (Other)
  • + Proximity to Schiphol
  • Room was a smokers room and intolerable.
  • (Families with young children)
Very nice place to stay
  • + I was suprised by very spacy, elegant room and bathroom. I appreciated the breakfast too: good choice and quality. The service was nice. I took a profit of special price offer, what made the relation price/quality very interesting.
  • Quite high stairs (which is normal in Holland :). The walls between bedrooms are not noise-proof.
