I stayed in the new edition to the hotel, but I also viewed a room in the old section. If you stay the newer side is much nicer, more room, and the parking for my vehicle was much easier. There was free wifi, courteous attendants, free parking, a comfortable bed, and it was quite. The location was a bit further then I wanted from downtown Amsterdam […] but it was still a great time and hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to airport"
The staff was very helpful and hotel was very comfortableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel. Excellent food. Excellent shuttle ser"
Our experience was very good. The hotel staff was very friendly. The room was clean, very big with full space. internet wireless free. The food was excellent and the shuttle service to and from the airport was oustanding.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better options available"
Shuttle goes every 40 minutes, and despite being at the stop 5 minutes early it had already gone so had to wait almost an hour outside the airport, then another 15 minutes to drive to hotel to line up for a room. Not worth it, there are better options at the same price with more reliable and more frequent shuttle service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just what I needed"
We had a 3 night stay and enjoyed it very much. Comfortable, quiet, and family friendly. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Everything was just as described, pool, patio, etc. The hotel is just across from a center filled with various food options and that was great if you like variety. The shuttle service was a great benefit and ran often and […] on time. I would definitely recommend and stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was very disappointing. Expedia stated there were coffee pot and minibar but none were available. It will be good for people who is staying short visit just to get to the airport otherwise, it is not for family pleasure/traveling. Just a large room with nothing in it. It is very inconvenient to travel to the hotel....it is located right off the […] A4. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fine for a night"
This hotel was far out of Amsterdam but a short shuttle ride to the airport. I stayed one night because I had an early flight and wanted to be close to the airport. The common areas of the hotel were nice - it is a conference hotel - and it had a pool and fitness area which was also nice. The room however was disappointing. My room, while large, was […] old and drab and it was quite an unusual route to get to it from in the hotel. I would not return or recommend but I had a great deal on the price of the room and it met my needs for one night. In the future, I'd stay right inside the city of Amsterdam and taxi in to the airport instead. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to airport"
Not impressed with outside appearance, however once inside Hotel was beautiful. Rooms were roomy, clean and fresh. Hotel staff understood and spoke English which was great asset. Planning another trip on July 22nd will spend 2 nights. Are there any discounts available for my 2nd stay within 3 weeks. Thanks SherryGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For a overnight stay between flights this hotel was A OK. Not perfect but good. The twin beds thru me for a loop,but they are close together and comfortable. Food there looked good, but less expensive food was across the street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Value and convenience."
I caught the Free Bus at the airport early the first morning. I had to wait a short while but was allowed to check in early and given a room very close to reception. I found the room location very convenient as a single female traveler. There was a security door between the public areas and the rooms. There were lots of brochures and discount coupons […] for attractions in the lobby. I used the Free Bus to the airport each day. At the airport I caught a bus to the Tulip Garden or the train into Amsterdam. I ate in the restaurant twice and enjoyed the food and servers both times. The bar was dark but pleasant. The staff were always professional, helpful and spoke English. I needed and appreciated the free computers with good internet access. There was a good cafe and some other restaurants just across the street but the location of the hotel was in the countryside. I was very pleased with this hotel. I only wish the rooms were a little more luxurious. The decor was too modern and plain for me. The price, however, was very reasonable for the amenities. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It's a great place to spend enroute. The restaurant food is varied and well prepared. The bar is a nice place. The terrace a cozy place. Free Internet and printing. Free shuttle to and from airport. The rooms are excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to airport"
Amazing breakfast buffet for 15 euros a person. Hotel has great facilities such as a heated pool and full sauna. The only negative is that it is 35 minute drive from the city center. But given how much you save by staying here vs. a city hotel of same caliber (at least 200 euros a night) it's not bad. The hotel also has cars for rent and a free shuttle […] to the airport.

"Convenient to the airport."
I had a late afternoon arrival into Amsterdam with a morning departure home the following day so I was looking for a convenient hotel near the airport. The hotel offers scheduled bus service to/from the airport and the accommodations were very comfortable as well as reasonably priced. A great choice if you are in search of a short stay hotel with airport […] service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Handy to Schipol"
Large hotel with long walks and elevator rides up then down to get to the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice, clean comfertable Hotel. It is very close to the airport so it's superb when you have to travel very early. Driver's of the shuttlebus have been very helpfull, friendly and funny. I wished there was a coffeemaker in the room but the receptionist explained why, so that's ok The younger receptionists should be more friendly and helpfull, they […] weren't always either one of that.

"Reasonable hotel/motor lodge near Airport."
This hotel/motel is located along a major highway near the airport. The only way to get in or out is by automobile or the shuttle bus. The shuttle is convenient running to the airport twice an hour during regular business hours. Breakfast was excellent for only €15.00.Genuine Expedia guest review
"There are much better options."
Rude/disinterested staff. Their excuse, "we are very busy." "Free" wi-fi logs you out every 15-30 min! Making it worthless if you are trying to do any work. On top of that, they were having wireless equipment problems. When I complained to the front desk, which was a 10 min walk from my room, they said, "look, we can connect here." I finally asked to […] speak to the manager, and he was as rude as his staff...big surprise. He is the one who finally told me that the system is designed to log you out every 15 min in the room areas; but not the public reception area. He said that I could come there and work....they offer a "business network" but no one knew the correct password. On a positive note. The exercise facilities and pool are outstanding. And, I almost forgot -- quite magnanimously, the manager gave me an orange to make up for my many trips to the reception desk. Which were required because I could not get the front desk to answer repeated calls from my room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and unexpensive"
Everything is nice except the distance to Amsterdam. However transport system is fine and there's no inconvenience except time spent on the road there and back.Genuine Expedia guest review
Large room & bathroom tastfully decorated. Balcony. Restaurant was superb. Well trained staff. Senior menu with smaller portions. Buffet. Breakfast had scrambled, fried, hard or soft boiled eggs with meat, fish, fresh fruit and sweets. Scrumptious. Highly recommend!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful hotel far from center but connected well"
The hotel is awesome. Big, clean, modern, big rooms, and a great lobby. The wifi works perfectly. If you have a car, perfect hotel; if you don't have a car it is very easy to catch the free hotel shuttle to the airport and take the train to city center. RT 8 euro and about 40 minutes one way altogether.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overall, a pleasant hotel"
Overall, I found my brief stay at the Van der Valk hotel quite enjoyable. From the outside it doesn't look all that nice, but don't let that fool you. The inside is well decorated and maintained. The staff is extremely friendly and are willing to offer help and advice regarding trips into the city. The hotel is a short 10 minute bus ride from the airport. […] The shuttle is complementary and runs 6am to Midnight, leaving the airport and hotel every 40 minutes (every even hour from the hotel and every odd hour from the airport). The hotel is located at a rest stop on the A4 highway, which offers several restaurant choices (KFC, Burger King, La Place) and a couple of shops. I found the room to be adequate and clean, meeting my expected needs. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to stay close to the airport.

"Reliable shuttle service; expensive breakfast"
The hotel was clean, large, and comfortable. It is far more suited for a quick layover or business meeting than anything vacation-like, but its shuttle service and proximity to a few others non-hotel food options (KFC, Burger King) is a major selling point. It is around a 15 minute shuttle ride from the airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was in terrible shape including these obvious problems: unpainted large plywood rectangle nailed to sink front, very scary shower with rubber tubing hanging from the door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not clean air and room"
the room was having a bad smell, and desks and such are old . not for a 4* hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for family or business stays."
The staff was very polite and friendly. Everyone spoke English which made it easy for US citizens to communicate. The rooms were large and very clean. The hotel provided shuttle transportation to the train so you can get downtown very easily. Overall it was a wonderful experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great option, compared to minimalist chains"
It is a great option, in the Netherlands, compared to all the other European minimalist chains. Big bath rooms. Super good restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Van der Valk = TWO THUMBS UP!"
Couldn't have asked for a better experience! From the moment I stepped in the door, the staff was friendly and accommodating. I loved the room, and especially the comfortable bed, balcony, high wood grained ceilings (very unique), and the giant flat screen television. The convenience of the various dining options within walking distance was a plus. […] As I went down to the lobby in the evening to head out for my dinner, the beautiful sounds of a gentleman playing piano was both soothing and sophisticated. Top quality at a very affordable price. It was my first stay in the area, and will not be my last at the Van der Valk. Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Served our purpose very well (staying at a decent hotel close to the airport).

"OK hotel, good location, horrible front desk"
I have never in all my travels dealt with a hotel desk this rude. The hotel is massive and reminded me of trying to navigate a maze without a map. It took us 2 elevators and 3 corridors to reach our room. Our only request was for a quiet room away from elevators and vending machines. While we weren't close to the later two, we were placed right next […] to the laundry loading dock with trucks that pick up at 5am. When I called the front desk to ask about a room change, they told me our room type wasn't available anywhere else but they could put us in a smaller room for the same charge. We did take the smaller room to get away from the racket but didn't appreciate the way we were treated. The rooms are OK and large by international standards but the decor and furnishings are very dated and unappealing. On the upside, they do have a nice indoor pool and lovely breakfast buffet. But unless you are prepared to pay EUR 15 per adult and half price for children, book the package with breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was just looking for a decent hotel by the airport, and the Van der Valk turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The restaurant was open early and late. The staff were friendly and helpful. The highlight for me was the steamroom and sauna - a pleasant surprise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We Refused to Stay"
It was not a hotel. it reminded me a processing facility. The staff of the huge facility was categorical and not accommodating, if you where promised a two queen room, don’t even dream - it will be 2 x two tween at best! No complaints taken. No attempts to mitigate... Once you are issued a key you are supposed to get lost in your little cell and not […] bother the staff, that reminded me officers of the correctional facility (I am a former judge). What they called rooms stunk and where barely maintained up to a minimum sanitary requirements (not sure they met them). we travelled in a company of four - my wife and two children and even after a four hour flight, we could not stay there, packed our stuff and left looking for another hotel.

"Plusses and minuses"
Hotel was much further from the Airport than advertised. It was a 10-15 min shuttle ride. Also the free shuttle service does not start until 6 am. If you have an early flight you must pay 20 Euros for the ride to the airport. Also early check in cost me an additional 15 Euros, which I found to be quite expensive for 4 hours. A plus is the location of […] a low-priced restaurant across the street from the hotel. It advertises free wifi, but it is not free--$.19 per minute. Lack of free wifi is a definite negative for this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good hotel near Amsterdam Airport"
I regularly stay here before my early morning flight to the US, a the hotel is but a few minutes away from the airport, right off the highway. It belongs to a chain that is known for fairly good quality at a reasonable price. My room was large and clean. Good, spacious bathroom, nice shower. Had a decent meal, friendly staff. The floor in my room was […] hot and therefore so was the room. Airco didn't seem to work in November. NOT a place for a vacation. You'll get some noise from the airport and the highway and the neighborhood lacks any charm. The hotel tries to make up for it with its decorations, fake fireplaces etcs. Open spaces, marble floors. Reminds me of Vegas, the basic version. If you can get a good price, don't hesitate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near the airport"
We had stayed at Van der Valk Hotel Schiphol A4 several years ago when our flight was delayed. We very much enjoyed the room and the food in the restaurant. This time, we stayed here because of it's convenience to Schiphol Airport and because of the previous stay. Unfortunately, it was a matter of convenience as we had an early flight from Schiphol […] back to the US. It was very clean... the restaurant was wonderful! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great for early travelers by plane."
We had a nice, quiet and clean room, with balcony. That evening there was a big wedding, but we did not hear a thing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, 15 min by Shuttlebus to Schiphol"
Main reason I picked Hotel Schiphol A4 is that the next day I had an early flight. Second very good value great rooms, for 15 euros breakfast buffet. Free Wifi, free schuttlebus from/to Schiphol trainstation/Airport (6:00 - 23:00). Across the Hotel you have restaurants and fastfood places. When taking back the shuttlebus to the airport call reception […] and see if there is room on the bus just to make sure. Hotel is nice spacious and still improving day by day. Good Job, my stay was very pleasant and surely a returning and happy traveler. Room Tip: Choose a room closer to the elevators, or you will walk a bit.
