Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NarpoDave Perfect except for one small thing!
I stayed here with some friends visiting Amsterdam. We arrived at Schiphol at 9am and took the courtesy bus to the hotel, where we explained that we were going to the football and expected to return very late in the evening. We were expecting to just drop off our bags, but were given the keys to our rooms - which were clean, spacious and very comfortable.
The staff advised about the nearby train station (5 minutes walk) and changed notes into coins as the ticket machine doesn't accept notes/cards.
A very good nights sleep was followed by an excellent breakfast, with plenty of choice and efficient staff keeping it well supplied.
Overall, I found only one niggle, which was the 7.50 Euro charge to take the shuttle bus TO the airport - but this would not stop me returning to this hotel if I return to Amsterdam (I would just walk to the station and get the train!!)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fab75 Nice place close to the Airport
10 min drive from AMS airport, quiet location and good quality of everything (sleep, cleaness, staff...).
Shuttle bus is really useful, but you need to pay 7.5EUR to go from the hotel to the airport the other way around is free of charge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jezzag Good location
This is a conveniently located hotel for Amsterdam and Schipol. It has everything you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. There is an added bony that it is only a 10 minute walk from Hoofddorp and it's excellent shops and restaurants, a real bonus.
The only dissapointment would be the breakfast which had slightly less choice than would be expected.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by b1barnes Was once my favorite, but not anymore
For my travel to and from Europe this was one of my favorite places to stay, but there seems to be a lack of upkeep in the rooms. The walls were dirty with marks all along the sides and carpet didn't look clean. There have been several complaints about the heating and air-conditioning system posted and personally this is the 2nd time I experienced it. The room temp was set at 19 degrees C, (66 degrees F), but my little clock said the room was at 25.5 degrees C, (78 degrees F). I know from past experience that this is not resettable at the wall or can the front desk change it. Odd to me as if there is a main system control why bother with individual room controls. So all night long you are hot. Maybe ok for some people, but not for me. Too bad as the location is great and the staff excellent. Breakfast is weak with nothing hot and all the food is packaged in little baggies.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sar42 Comfortable stay
A very convenient hotel for Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Stayed for one night. Excellent restaurant in walking distance of the hotel. Comfortable room, with space to relax and finish my work for the day. Bathroom very spacious with a great shower. Breakfast choices were very good. Checking in could have been smoother as initially the wrong room number was written on my card, but this was rectified quickly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe42c Good service
The hotel provided an efficient shuttle service to and from the hotel. The room was nice, although the double bed was a bit soft for my taste, and was against the wall on one side which made access for one of us a bit tricky. The shower was particularly nice with plenty of room for two. There was no bath, but that didn't bother us.
There is no restaurant at the hotel so you have to eat out, but there are places within up to 15 minutes walk.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ceroneinc Convenient, but not great
My wife and I stayed overnight on our way home from Greece to the States. The bed was placed butt against a wall so that it was very awkward for two to lay in the bed. During the night my wife complained severe headach and I went to the desk to get some pain killers. The staff was very simpathetic and helpful.
My biggest beef was that the shuttle bus from the airporrt to the hotel was cmplementary, but the other way was not. Their borchure does not say so and very confusing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by UnaH Happy to stay here again
I stay regularly at the Holiday Inn Express in Hoofddorp and I'm very happy with both the service and the quality of the rooms. The staff are always very friendly without being over the top. There is rarely a queue to check-in or out.
The staff are also very responsive to any requests or suggestions for improvement to the hotel. I'm still waiting for an iron and ironing board that can be brought to the room though ..

I stayed in a twin bedroom. The space is relatively small compare other hotel I stayed in. It is 10~15 min by shuttle to airport and it cost 7 euro on the return trip. Parking is 15 euro per day, I don't think other hotel charges that. I would not want to stay there again unless necessary.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Business78 Brandon was very helpful!
I had a great experience staying at Holiday inn during a business trip to Amsterdam. It is about 10 mins from the train station. Some nice eating places within 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel. Hotel staff especially Brandon was very courteous and helpful. He readily ordered dinners upon request. Shuttle service from the hotel back to the airport was late by 30 mins. So plan ahead and give yourself enough time to reach airport.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Buen Hotel Para descansar
Si vienes de un viaje largo y pretendes pasar una noche cerca del Aeropuerto este hotel es una buena opcion. El transporte del Aeropuerto al hotel es gratuito (el regreso no los es)
La muchachas de Recepcion son muy amabales... en el desayuno le falta un poco de variedad pero para un desayuno ligero es muy bueno esta cerca una estacion de Tren que te lleva a central station la cama no se si iba muy cansado pero se me hizo muy comoda.. en fin una estancia muy buena

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HRaymond A real enclosed shower!
It was our last night in Europe in a 3 week trip. We were tired and were not looking forward to a long flight the next day. We got up to our room, opened the door, looked in the bathroom, and there it was. A full, enclosed, glass fronted, shower stall. We felt like we had reached heaven. No more European style showers consisting of a flexible hose in a bath tub that sprayed the entire bathroom floor. A good night's sleep got us ready for travel, but we won't forget that shower.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Lack of cleaning service
As a Holiday Inn "Hotel" I expected the room to be cleaned everyday for the last 3 days/2nights I stayed there for a week, my room was not cleaned the whole weekend. I asked this question to the recepcionist and she said that the records show that I put the "do not disturb sign" on the door... I`d never put that sign and this of course was invented by the cleaning staff. I did not like this fact and makes me wonder what kind of staff does this hotel hire to write something like this and the worst problem is that nobody was aware of this until I complained, I honestly thought it was because it was Friday and Saturday and thought maybe in Holland don`t work weekends.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobbob Generally excellent and such welcoming staff
I work away from home 3 days each week and sometimes it's hard to be away on such a regular basis. The reason I choose to stay at the Holiday Inn is mainly because the staff are warm, friendly and welcoming and make being away from home just a little less traumatic.
My only negative remark s that the housekeeping staff are sometimes a little sloppy. I am aware of two occasions (one involving me personally) where guests have been given the key to a room only to find that it has not been made ready and in fact was as left by the previous occupant. Other recent examples are that one day last week I was left with only one large towel instead of two and the liner from the shower-room bin had been left on the surface next to the sink. When I picked it up to throw it away I found the surface below to be dirty and so I wiped it clean myself with a damp tissue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kirstx Everything you need for a break away
I stayed here as I was attending a festival in Amsterdam, unfortunately the venue was changed to Bloemendaal Ann Zee at short notice. This was not a problem, however, as the train station was a short walk away from the hotel and it didn't take long to get to Zandvoort station and then a short bus ride to the venue.
The room was clean and modern and the bed was really comfortable as I would expect from the Holiday Inn. Breakfast is served from 7am until 10.30am which is great if you are a late riser like myself. The check out is 12pm which I really appreciated as we were back very late the night before. The staff were also friendly and helpful. I have stayed at many hotels over the years for short breaks away, some costing considerably more with little extra, so I would definitely recommend for value for money. The only small improvement I would make is to add a mirror above the desk, other than that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. My advice to anyone staying in the area is to bring some euro’s with you if you don't have a Maestro card as the station currently does not accept Visa when you buy a train ticket.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by elaine5775 Affordable hotel with all the basics for weary travellers :)
This hotel looks relatively new or very well maintained. The moment i walked in, friendly smiles welcomed me. Pleasant service, efficient check-in and very cosy rooms. It's definitely worth the value. The location is around 15mins walk to the nearest train station and very peaceful. A simple but adequate variety of quick meals are available for sale, so weary travellers do not even need to venture out from the hotel. There's even a room for ironing, if needed. I would definitely choose to stay at this hotel again, if i ever stopped by Amsterdam for transit. Great hotel!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by susieque Not up to Holiday Inn Standard
Rooms were tiny tiny , and service non existent. No upgrades for Platinum members, charge for shuttle service back to airport, and the train stop too far away for senior citizens to walk to and hotel would not provide shuttle service to the train station. Had to pay the shuttle service to airport to catch the train to city center. Only Continental breakfast available.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LitProf1 About the wheelchair accessible room
Given that the room was designated as wheelchair accessible, it made no sense the glass shower doors and the bed snuggly fitting up against one wall. So, there is only one side of the bed with access. The bathroom had all the handicapped accessible features one could need. But, my mother, using the wheelchair, was afraid to bump the glass doors within the room. The hotel was very difficult to find hidden in a business park with not much else in the area. I would not say the hotel is close to the airport. The breakfast and hotel lobby was nice. The food in the lobby was quite expensive.
