    Clean comfortable- business class

    Not close to any restaurants. Front desk person unwilling to accommodate our arrival time. We walked for 2 1 2 hours in the rain and still our room was not ready by 2 00pm even though check in time was listed as 1 00pm. Front desk person stated staff on holiday- nothing she could do. Restaurant person also rude.

    “My tip: Close to airport with shuttle service but nothing for a tourist to do.”

    An excellent dinner in the restaurant

    No one was at the front desk for our morning check-out. We, and other guests asked for help , but no desk clerk We had scheduled the shuttle to the airport and had to leave--actually 10 guests took hotel shuttles. I m contacting them for my final bill by e-mail.

    location

    Enjoyed being able to walk around in a neighbourhood . Shuttle from airport was quicker than last time we stayed, but think they need to clarify where it comes etc. to client and time it will take if they have to go to Park and fly location as well as Hotel.

    “My tip: Restaurant was very good - no need to pay for buffet breakfast as continental breakfast substantial - egg, meat, cheese etc.”

    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.

    Sufficient

    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.”

    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.

    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.

    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

    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”

    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

    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.”

    Lovely room

    Lovely hotel. The bed was very comfortable, and the bedding was high quality. We chose this hotel as it was close to the Aalsmeer flower auction. We paid 17E for a ride to the flower auction, and then took the bus into Amsterdam.Shuttle is best way to get to flower auction. Did not eat here, but the restaurants looked to be very nice.

    Had to wait about an hour for airport shuttle. The van also serves a park and fly lot.

    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”

    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.”

    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
