"Nice hotel close to nothing"
This hotel was nice. Hotel shuttle that runs every 40 minutes to the airport. There are a couple of restaurants around and a store but other than that there is nothing around. The bad thing is the tv and dust in the room. After a certain time there are only advertisements for adult company on TV.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel close to the airport"

"Nice stay at Van der Valk"
Overall I had a nice stay at Van der Valk. The hotel was close to airport but a little far from the city. I loved the pool and spa area!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Looks Nice But That's Deceiving"
We paid 158 euro for three adults in one room. The room was large and looked reasonably o.k. At check-in, they told us we had two elevators to take to get to our room (there are hundreds of rooms in this hotel). We took the first elevator to the 1st floor, then had trouble finding the 2nd elevator which was down the hall and a turn to the right, after […] proceeding through double doors. Many other guests were also having trouble finding this elevator. After getting off the floor, we had a lengthy walk to the room. We found the room temperature was too cool (21 C or 70 F) and lighting was terrible (two 35 w bulbs and a lousy overhead ceiling light). I talked to the front desk clerk who said there was nothing they could do but I insisted on seeing the supervisor (mgr not on duty then); the clerk subsequently said I was rude because I insisted on standing to the side at the check-in counter to wait for the supervisor rather than sit in the lobby and be ignored as she instructed. The supervisor was able to get maintenance to raise the temp to 25 C but then we discovered at night the temp would only go down to 17C. The light bulbs could not be changed. Later we found that when we turned on the water, it surged out and then dwindled to nothing. I took up these issues with the front desk manager the next morning and her attitude was one of take it or leave it. I doubt we'll stay here again with the attitude of the front desk staff and manager and problems with their rooms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Schiphol A4 one night stay"
Room feels homely but no box of tissue and no coffee and tea facilities in the room. So disappointing. After a long day in the Centre, it would have been nice to relax in the comfort of the room with own coffee and tea facilities. Had to go down to get coffee from the machine and pay for it. We stayed in another hotel closer to Airport for the same […] price where they provided tea and coffee facilities, complimentary water and only 8 min away from airport.

I had to spend 2 nights close to the Amsterdam Airport. My experience could not have been better. The friendly staff, excellent restaurant, "punctual" shuttle bus to and from the airport and the overall ambience of the hotel made an otherwise uneventful hotel stay a very pleasant experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Luxury and Good price at once !!!"
Excellent price and good service....Staff really servicial and the room was excellent good space and cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to Schiphol"
Great hotel for the value. A bit noisy in the bar area which did not allow for quiet conversation. Room was very comfortable. However, a "conditioner" should be added to the "shampoo" and "bath gel." Women need conditioners!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good value, free transport and free Internet. Restaurant also good!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Large hotel with free shuttle"
A sprawling hotel a bit further from the airport than expected that handles large volumes of travelers. So lines for registration, shuttle, restaurant can be long and can be a long walk to the room. Food options across the parking lot are a good alternative if the restaurant is full or you want to explore. At about one third the cost of hotels downtown […] Amsterdam it is a bargain!

The hotel was great for the price, did not expect a four star but was surprised there were no bell hops to help with luggage which was difficult with luggage and impaired mobility. The room was missing simple amenities like a coffee maker, and an ice bucket.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Far from town"
About an hour from town. 20 minute bus ride then go to a train for a 20 minute train ride. If you need to print anything I could not get it printed. You email to the front desk then they print it. Took me around 24 hours for them to print it. I will never stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"a great buy with convenient airport shuttle"
this hotel was a great value compared to others near airport. shuttle was frequent with large bus servicing route to/from airport and hotel. room was large, and we were very pleased with our stay. will definitely choose van der valk schiphol again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to many location around amsterdam"
service very good and transportation from airport to hotel and back very good Outstanding breakfast in this hotel to us the best any place and we have been all over the globe some of the most fancy hotels can not compete with this one. Only thing they could improve on for passengers from out side the country their should be no extra fee when you arrive […] early because after a 11 hour flight you need your room. other wise excellent place to stay with super service.

"Nice hotel near airport"
We recently stayed at the Van der Valk hotel on a layover. We enjoyed our stay and were impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and the comfort in general. We would certainly recommend this to anyone needing a short stay in Amsterdam.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, convenient shuttle to Schiphol"
Very nice hotel and amenities. My reservation through Expedia somehow did not show the child so the staff was not very.courteous saying that I did not quite tell the truth about my reservation. I later found the paper that shows the correct reservation so it may be some mis immunization between systems. The hotel is very convenient for an early fli […] ght.

"big, effiecient, airport hotel with free shuttle"
The staff at the restaurant was great and dinner was very good too. Check in staff at reception was a bit frosty. Room was big, had a tub and shower and a view of the garden. Stayed for 9 hrs until as it's a airport hotel. Free shuttle till midnight, then it's about 20-25 euros to get to the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Thumbs up for Van der Valk"
Friendly, courteous and attentive staff. Large room (older but clean). Delicious meal in restaurant. Great shuttle service to airport. Only downside is very convoluted journey to the room from registration desk (multiple elevator trips, many hallways etc). Need to drop breadcrumbs so you don't get lost.Genuine Expedia guest review
nice and clean, great service. the fitness room, pool, and spa were a nice benefit (unfortunately I wasn't able to use them). easy trip from and to airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I love the NEW renovated part of the Van der Valk!"
Clean Clean Clean! Great hotel! Great price! Great service! Awesome FREE shuttle to the airport that arrives on time! Honest housekeeping staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Friendly service; shuttle service was very helpful. Would recommend to all who travel near Schiphol and Amsterdam as well as nearby communities. Wished we had picked more VDV locationsGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was nice and relaxing but it's completely out if the way. Free transportation is nice but being away from everything definitely feels like being in a completely different country than the city of Amsterdam.Genuine Expedia guest review
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

"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.

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
