"7 nights"
When we first checked in for our 6 nights we were put on the old antiquated section with no a/c on bottom floor and broken tv with well used beds. I discussed with the receptionist that we were going to be here for 6 nights and returning the end of our trip for the 7th night and the room was not going to work for us. With a little attitude we were moved to a newer section of the hotel which was better. I spent a lot of time in the pool which was amazing and the relaxing beds and sauna area. The heated chairs were pointed at the IR/Daylight rooms which was pretty uncomfortable and odd. They should face a different direction. I dont care to sit behind glass and have other sitting in a chair looking at me as I enjoy a bit of daylight. felt like a girl in the window after hours in the red light district..odd. Everything else we very pleasing. the food a bit pricey to say the least but there is a restaurant across the road with market fresh food options called La Place. There is also a gas station across the street for that quick larger cup of coffee. No room coffee or tea option which again was something that was displeasing as a nice cup on the deck in the morning would have been relaxing to start my day. The 7th night when we were scheduled to come back we were put in the I AM....section of this hotel.... very nice rooms there and up-to-date. I would request a new room if I ever stay there again and state my purpose such as frequent pool use.

"Don't expect much"
This hotel was fine for one night before we flew out the next morning, however i don't expect to book here again. For the price I expected a bit more. The rooms needed refurbishing. The customer service was pretty terrible- the type of place in which you don't get anything unless you ask specifically. Towels for the pool? Yes walk all the way back to the lobby and ask for them. Breakfast? Yes you can order breakfast only of you get in line in the main lobby and pay for a voucher there first. Dinner? Sure the restaurant is open, but you will need to request that someone serve you. A positive was that the hotel shuttle was on time.

"Wouldn't go back"
Was charged 80€ for parking :( staff was less than helpful. Room was new but was in another hotel that is attached to the main hotel. Room amenities were scarce, no waters, no mini bar, no tissues, bed was so-so, towels were worn out. The food at the restaurant was good however and the spa area is decent. Had stayed with this chain quite a few times in the past but left this hotel with a bad taste in my mouth, will not return.

"It was OK but..."
I paid for superior room with bathtub and shower and they gave me a little room with just shower in a new wing called. " I am...".Only when I made them look t the description at the Expedia site they were convinced and was transferred to the old wing :big room with bathtub shower. Excellent breakfast. Made early check in for free but late checkout cost 20 euro for 4 hours.

"Nice hotel close to Schiphol airport."
This hotel is close to the airport and has a very convenient shuttle bus every 40 minutes or so. The hotel staff was very diligent and helpful. The restaurant has excellent food and service. Room was very spacious. Perfect if you want to layover prior to a long flight as we did. No complaints at all.

"big and kitsch (the ugly not-cool kind)"
massive stupid space.. walk for ages to find your room. NOT actually close to the airport. they do have a shuttle, but it stops running at night and it is expensive to use either their night shuttle or a taxi. Their kitchen also closes at a certain time, and (since the hotel is near nothing) it is then impossible to get food.

"Great Experience"
My room was categorized as non-smoking, but I could hardly believe that. However, it IS AMSTERDAM, so duh. The pool and wellness center area was the most exciting reason I booked my stay there, and it absolutely delivered! I thought I was in heaven. I think I was.... The staff was great; the shuttle was timely; I didn't have a chance to enjoy the food because the stay was so short and it was New Year's, but the breakfast buffet looked monstrous. I will absolutely stay there again if my travels permit.

"Ideal place to stay near Amsterdam airport"
Love the location; close to the airport and an excellent free shuttle service between hotel and airport from where trains can take you to the city or anywhere else in the country. The hotel also offers free parking, in case you rent a car, and is so easily accessible, as it right near the A4 highway. The restaurant has excellent food at very reasonable prices. The room prices are very reasonable as well. This hotel is always my first choice when traveling to Amsterdam.

It is not right to charge extra money (5 euro per hour) for early check in. Airport shuttle is supposed to be free, but it only starts at 6 am. if the customer who has an early flight has to pay for the shuttle. The hotel only cares about money, but not customers

"Great for an early flight from Schiphol"
We stayed here on the last night of our vacation because of an early departure from Schiphol. Traveling with two teens, we reserved a "quad room," and found it very spacious, well appointed, and comfortable. A nice restaurant with friendly service and a good, prompt, and free shuttle service to the airport made it an ideal choice.

"Disappointed with Staff and service"
Normally I don't write reviews but really feel I had to in this case. From the start we found the staff at the hotel to be very rude and just refused to speak English at any time. Each encounter was never better and overall we found the staff to be unhelpful and unfriendly. The room was fine, the only thing going for it was the fact it was large enough to handle all four of us traveling. Bathroom was big too. But the hotel was odd in fact that the rooms were not well connected to the rest of the hotel - we had to go up an elevator/stairs to then go across a hall way/conf room to another section of the hotel to then go down two floors to our room - It was okay we made it work but just overall odd. Food buffet for breakfast was plenty, but again the rude staff at check-in didn't explain or care to explain there was no other option for breakfast - as in not able to order breakfast - only the buffet and to add or not add to bill was not well explained. Again Staff refused to explain in English so had to interpret what she said in Dutch. At check out the staff could not refund my credit card the $500 hold they placed on it. They gave up and even though I asked to keep trying they refused and told me it would clear in 4 weeks - yes after I paid for it on my bill.

"Hotel was okay."
I was disappointed the hotel room didn't look like the pictures I saw. However, everything was okay. Room was clean. Shuttle picked me up from and returned me to airport. Very prompt and frequent schedule. carpet in the room looks like wood floors but it is carpet. I got to the hotel after 11 pm when their restaurant was closed. Everything closes early in Amsterdam. I had to go to the Shell gas station nearby and that is where i bought my dinner. If you are flying in late make sure you eat at the airport or eat before you fly because everything is closed. The hotel staff was very courteous and well dressed. Check in and out was a breeze. the hotel common areas looks nice. Rooms have a garden view. The hotel staff speaks English. Would have given a higher rating if the room I was in looked like the room in the picture on Expedia. Last thing, I am assuming the hotel is very energy conscious and that is the reason all the lights in the room were very dim compared to bright American hotel room lights. Was a little difficult to see at night in the bathroom because of the dim lights.

"Simple, basic rooms, everything "extra" costs extr"
OK hotel, on highway, about 12-15 min with the shuttle (every 40 min) from Schiphol. Not extremely convenient, but it influences the price (downwards), and if you're not in a hurry, it is OK. I arrived very late, had the last shuttle and left early next day, so no time to explore the hotel facilities (so no judgement on this). The rooms are decent size, but the absolute barest minimum in amenities, not even a glass to drink water from the tap or brush your teeth. No coffee or tea in the room (2 Euro in the restaurant), and nothing but a TV and 1 electrical socket. The beds were comfortable though, and the room was tidy. Nothing wrong with it at all, although I was a bit surprised that this is 4-stars; this definitely is not based on the rooms! In short, recommendable if you need a room to sleep, affordable, not the most convenient location, but price counts as well.

"room is spacious, but the facilities are old"
I stayed there for two nights with my wife. The room is spacious. This is probably the only positive for this hotel. Hotel staffs are not so helpful and the facilities are super outdated. There is even no plug in the bathtub. In addition, the elevator in the lobby is not so reliable. Press several times, but no response at all!!

"FANTASTIC POOL!"
Had a mix-up with the room type booked vs. received which was resolved with the hotel directly and then followed up by Hotels.com. Satisfied with the outcome. Pool/Spa area is AMAZING. There is a large truck stop in the same parking lot as the hotel which has 4 restaurants...lots of choice. Had a drink at the hotel bar and was disappointed by the service. (long wait, unfriendly service). Overall I would stay here again for an overnight in AMS. Sidenote- I was extremely happy with the resolution of our problem with the hotel and will gladly continue to use hotels.com.

"The Van der Valk Hotel"
The lobby was beautiful and the staff accommodating. The room was very clean and spacious, however, not nearly as ascetically pleasing as the lobby. The bed was clean and comfortable. I was only at the Van der Valk briefly during a lay over, however, the price was very good for such nice accommodations. My only complaint would be the cost of the shuttle service, which charges 20 euros after 11:40 P.M. Prior to late night arrivals it is free. Cabs from the airport are apparently 35 or more. I would definitely recommend this hotel to a traveler who can arrive during the free shuttle hours, otherwise, the price of the shuttle (or a cab) will add significantly to the cost of an overnight stay. Nonetheless, I was impressed with the beauty of the Van der Valk's lobby, and the reasonable price for a room.
