Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by American_in_DE Comfortable Bed and Easy Airport Shuttle
The hotel is clean, comfortable and offers an easy airport shuttle. Bed was great, linens were soft and new, pillow selection all offering great sleep. The room was very quiet. Shower was large and relaxing. Soft and fluffy towel. Breakfast is OK, selection a bit limited, but very fresh. Note: breakfast starts at 6:30 so may not be open for very early flights. Airport shuttle was convenient running every 30 minutes and starting from the hotel at 5:45.
The area of the hotel is airport hotels and businesses. Nothing to see/do, but you can easily get to Amsterdam within 30 minutes by train to Amsterdam Centraal from Hoofddorp station (10 minute walk). The hotel staff has all information ready to go for you!
Wi-fi was reliable and of reasonable speed.
Will stay again in a few weeks!

Stayed for two nights.
Great staff, helped me immediately when needed.
Simple and basic breakfast.
The wifi connection was quite slow and was disappearing quite often. It definitely needs to be improved.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bick12345 nice for a stay near the airport
I had an early morning flight. I specifically asked about breakfast hours, but got wrong information . However, the staff did preper a packed breakfast, and let me have some coffee so it was OK. Also, I would expect that an airport hotel will have a luggage-scales, but there wasn't. The shuttle to and from the airport was very useful, and the drivers were friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smiler129 Perfect Condition for Sleep
One of the best hotels I have stayed in recently for comfort and quietness - it was perfect for a good night of sleep!
The hotel was spotlessly clean.
Breakfast is a little basic, however, all of the food was beautifully fresh and the breakfast area was light, airy and welcoming.
Efficiency of some of the reception staff left a little to be desired, but in the main they were pleasant and helpful.
The courtesy bus is a bonus - the drivers were very helpful and extremely courteous.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by picmartin Excellent stay and one of the best holiday inn express
Warm welcome and helpfull.
Hotel makes a very nice and warm impression upon arrival.
Room was excellent. Large beds and great t.v.
Breakfast like in other H.I.E. Hotels. Coffee could be stronger! Had this kind of coffee before in other Holiday Inn Express hotels in Amsterdam and not necessary to add so much water.
We had excellent wine!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maggma Clean, ample paid parking even for long vans, Free frequent courtesy bus to Airport
The staff are welcoming and helpful. Good internet access and unlike sone hotels the email on the PC (outlook) and the iPad are not blocked. There is no resteraunt but an evening meal is available locally from various locations within walking distance 10 - 20 mins dependent on choice ( hotel provides a useful map ). There are drinks, sandwiches and microwave noodles available in the hotel if you don't want to take the short walk out. There is a small bar and a comfortable lobby and seating area downstairs. Breakfast is continental style, rolls, cheeses, cereals and a hard boiled eggs etc. The rooms are fresh, well maintained and clean with coffee and tea making facilities.
Parking for a long wheelbase van (limited but available, next to the hotel) and plenty of space in the multi-story car park. The FREE shuttle bus to the airport is every half hour from 0600 to 2345 and useful for getting a train into Amsterdam too ( only €4 each way so well worth it if you have a few hours free to yourself).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Olypeach Convenient Location / Price is Right
We were booked at a different hotel (major US chain) near Schipol, the shuttle pulls up, and the driver asks for $20 Euro to bring us to the hotel. Then the Holiday Inn Express shuttle pulls up behind it.
The solution was obvious.
As with the other Holiday Inn Express' in The Netherlands, very consistent and high quality makes it easy to relax.
Unlike the other ones, this one is not in a tourist area, it's built to be convenient to Schipol, so in that regard, I'll give it high marks for location. I wouldn't use it as a multi-day vacation base as I have for the Holiday Inn Express in, for example, The Hague (best location ever!).
Very competitively priced. Pleasant surprise there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dougherty Great Hotel
This was the first great night of sleep I had in Europe. During my 2 weeks in Europe (business trip) I stayed in 6 different hotels & this one was the BEST by far. Great location,& even though you are right downtown you don't hear any of the noise from outside. My room had a great seat by the window where I sat & read while looking out over the city. The hotel is within walking distance of many restaurants & shops. The staff was great, room was clean & bed was comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Popster57 Nice breakfast, but few "Hot" items
I always enjoy staying at this Holiday Inn, and now the shuttle going to/fro the airport is 100% free. Bravo! The breakfast is free too, but I wish there were more hot items on a raw day in February. As it is now, the only "hot" choices are coffee, toast, and warm hard-boiled eggs. A fellow traveler (from Russia no less) strolled around the room looking for something and when I mentioned "eggs" he wondered where they were. (i.e. scrambled eggs, sunny-side up). I know sausage and bacon aren't healthy for you, but those are standard breakfast choices at restaurants/hotels AND are presented at a hot temperature. Well, the hard-boiled eggs arrived eventually but it'd be nice if some more hot comfort food was served as well. Hot oatmeal? Just sayin'.

The hotel is in a new building. Functionally is built. Located in a quiet area. Airport shuttle works perfectly. The choice of food for breakfast was modest.

Hotel is very, very convenient to airport, 15 mins away by hotel shuttle. Even though I was in the hotel less than 12 hours, everyone I met was very kind, cordial and helpful and the room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Thank you!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Don 33 very clean property with great breakfast
After a long flight from Western Canada we were tired and pleased to find a clean, modern facility waiting for us in this hotel. The breakfast was super and the front desk staff were very helpful in giving directions to the nearest public transportation.
I would stay here again and recommend it to friends. It is a bit far from the centre of Amsterdam but we enjoyed the ride on the train and meeting local people enroute.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shh123 Helpful, friendly staff
All the staff at the hotel are extremely helpful, friendly, and cheerful - this include the front desk manager and receptionist to the dining personnel. The hotel is very tidy and comfortable, as well as being convenient to Schiphol airport. We enjoyed our stay and am sure we will return. Thank you!!

Will stay here again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lefytrex Does the job of a city/airport hotel really well
I've stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Hoofddorp many times, and other HIX too. The one at Hoofddorp is excellent - welcoming staff, spotless rooms (always), big double bed (I'm tall), easy access via rail to Amsterdam or shuttle to Schiphol, couple of restaurants around (though nothing in the hotel)... Value for money is good.
Maybe the breakfast choice could be a bit more extensive and imaginative - and the coffee and fruit juice aren't special.
But overall a great place for what iyou go there for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Colleenr18 Definitely would recommend the Holiday Inn Express!
We had a wonderful stay at the Holiday Inn Express - Schiphol airport hotel. We stayed 2 nights (October 31st and November 1st). The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean and very comfortable. This iis our second stay at this hotel (we stayed one night last year on the way home from Amsterdam to Vancouver) and we would highly recommend this hotel. The location is very convenient as it is about a 15 minute walk into town with lots of shopping and restaurants.

The management and staff of this hotel are outstanding! During our last day I became extemely ill and had to be rushed to the hospital. The staff helped my husband pack up our belongings, helped him with phone calls - even rebook our flight home to the states. Very helpful. Very thoughtful. We remain most thankful and grateful.

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.
