We spent a few days in Amsterdam prior to a cruise, and chose this hotel because it included breakfast and shuttle service in the price. We waited for the shuttle at A9-13 as instructed, and the shuttle bus showed up right on schedule. The schedule is posted on the wall at this location, and the buses are prompt! Don't be late or you'll miss it. The bus is a large one, with lots of room, but we were advised to sign up for it when we wanted shuttle service from the hotel, because it's often full. The bus also stops at two other hotels.
We were really pleased with the polite,cheerful service we got from the front desk. The room itself, although not that large, was fine for the two of us. It was sparkling clean, modern and the beds were comfortable. We requested a room on the top floor, so we didn't hear guests overhead.
The continental breakfast was ample, with lots of choices, and was kept tidy, with food being constantly replenished. Although there were no other cooked hot foods, there were hot hardboiled eggs, several different cheeses and deli meats, and a good selection of breads, plus yogurt,coffee, tea, and juices. Unlike a lot of other hotels we've been at, there was ample seating for everyone, especially considering there were two tour busloads in the hotel at the time.
The shuttle service allowed us easy access to the trains at Schiphol Airport, and it was only a 20 min, train ride to Amsterdam Central and from there. a 15 minute walk to the cruise terminal. We also took the Keukenhof express bus, since the gardens were open while we were there. The hotel is within easy walking distance of Hoofdorp, a lovely suburb with lots of shopping and restaurants. We walked here several times, especially when we were too jet-lagged after our flight to consider going downtown.
We would definitely recommend this hotel as good value and a great place to stay.

Alsways enjoy my stays here. Staff makes us feel like family and friends and work to make us as comfortable as possible as this is a 24 lay over on a very long flight. I will always tell others about them.
