"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
near the airport. Nice hotel. Bus transport to and from hotel could be better.Genuine 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). Restaurant was quite expensive but the unique location on the expressway adjacent to a service area resulted in guests having a choice of several other food establishments next door. Was a comfortable hotel with many amenities, including a very nice bar, great gym and po […] ol.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.

pleasant stay. not very suitable for wheelchair user or elder people. staff very helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
"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

"Great for being close to Schiphol airport."
I would have expected in room coffee and tea maker. The lighting was not good for reading any where in the room.Genuine 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 hotel with a good price. Free shuttle to and from airport every 40 minutes. Quiet place, away from night lifeGenuine Expedia guest review
If you are not traveling on a shoestring, this is the place to go.Genuine Expedia guest review
I have stayed at this property many times. The bus service is always ontime (40 min frequency) The restaurant is very good. The price normally represents a good value. They have multi-person rooms as wellGenuine 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.

Perfect hotel for our 1-night stay before cruise--close to airport (and train station) with free shuttle. Room clean, comfortable, and quiet with nice balcony. Reception and restaurant staff very helpful and efficient and dinner and breakfast buffet excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, convenient one night stay."
Good hotel. Good location for air travelers. Staff extremely polite and helpful. Clean room. Charge for one night extremely high. We later found out that there was a conference in the area. If this hotel is advertised as a convenient location for air travelers, they should keep that in mind and not triple room rates for non-conference guests.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Really I went with my family 4 adults and 1 kid, there are an excellent idea to take this hotel, great connection with the airport, excellent and more big rooms for all, a lot of espacies into the room. The service are great. I recommend to everyone to go to Amsterdam and don't going to the center. It´s a excellent election this hotel. GabrielGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was beautiful. The service could be better. We had to wait a half hour before somebody took our order at the dinner table. It took another half hour to deliver our meal. Otherwise, very clean and pleasant atmosphere. The busdriver of the shuttle bus was excellent. He helped everybody with their luggage.Genuine Expedia guest review

"As pleasant as Holland in general"
The Hotel is as nice as Holland in general; excellent breakfast, excellent dinner, friendly staff. I was very pleased to find a Christian Bible in the room. The only snag was the elevator did not work and I had to drag my luggage to the first floor.Genuine Expedia guest review

This was a very affordable hotel which accommodated our family of three wonderfully. The activity, restaurant, swimming pool and energy was an unexpected surprise!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value hotel with airport shuttle"
The interior of the hotel is very impressive. The lounge is huge, a big difference from other hotels we stayed in Europe. It is space everywhere. The decoration is also nice, many jewelry and painting on display are very interesting. The wellness center is amazing. Room is big and comfy. Staff are professional and helpful, speak very good english. Only […] lacking is in room amenities. Blower seems pretty old comparing to the rest of the bathroom. There arent any coffee pot in room. We asked one from front desk and it is also very old, it doesnt stop boiling water even after it is ready, you have to manually turn it off. After all, it is a bargain with the price it charges.

"Not a pleasant experience especially for the cost"
Having arrived from an international flight, I arrived the hotel at approximately 10am and was told I had to pay an additional 15Euros to check in early. My room was on the 8th floor and the elevator on the 8th floor wasn't working so I had to get off on the 7th floor and carry my luggage up a flight of stairs. The hallway on the 8th floor was undergoing […] construction so there construction equipment and debris everywhere. But the most disappointing was the heat in the room. I was told the air conditioning had not been turned on for the summer season yet so there was no air circulation in the room and it was a hot day with my window facing west with the sun bearing down through the room. When I asked to change rooms, I was told the hotel was booked and there were no other rooms. I was also told the air con wasn't working, under repair. I was not able to even sit in my room even though I paid 15Euros for an early check in. I was not able to sleep comfortably through the night because it was so hot. Wouldn't stay here again!

The hotel was in construction as a new elevator shaft was being added. Not too much interference with hotel's normal business, although some strong gasoline like smell was felt in a couple of days. Definitely a new elevator is highly needed as the hotels kind of lacks it... Avoid the triple occupancy rooms by the existent elevator as they are noisy. No […] iron is available in the room. Just one per floor, in a special dedicated room(?).... Free wireless Internet and free parking were both nice features. Overall, a good 7 nights short vacation. Amsterdam it's a "must see"!!!
