Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam-Schiphol
Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Hoofddorp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 February 2012

When you land at AMS just get your bags, run outside and the free hotel shuttle should be only minutes away. Once you arrive at the hotel the staff is friendly, helpful and the hotel seems fairly new and very clean. The room was a decent size for a European hotel and the bed is pretty comfy. The only real problems with this hotel are: No gym. If you like to get in a workout while on the road this is a problem. The temperature while i was here never got above freezing so going for a run outside is not an option. The other thing was the lack of good restaurants/pubs within an easy walk. I suggest you take the bus or a cab and head to Haarlem. Its only about 15 minutes away and is a beautiful city with lots of great restaurants and bars. I personally recommend the Polo Bar for drinks and Cafe de Linde for dinner.
If you want to take the shuttle back to the airport be sure to sign-up for a slot the night before you leave. There is also a 7.50 euro charge for return to the airport. There is also a free breakfast at the hotel but don't expect too much. Cereal, cold cuts, bread and drinks pretty much sums it up.

We stayed at this new hotel just 15 mins away from the airport and ten mins away from Amsterdam Central. Superb quality hotel at a great price. The staff were friendly and helpful willing to go the extra mile to give good service.

The hotel is quite new, with modern furniture an free wifi. The location is not the best, somewhere close to airport (7 min by their free shuttle). The shuttle is free from airport to hotel and 8 eur back.
I didn't like that soap and shampoo were missing. It took me 2 phonecalls and 1 hr waiting to get them. My be i was unlucky that day :)

This is an okay hotel near Schiphol (reason we stayed here 1 night) but don't come here as a tourist. It's very far from the center. We had a really difficult time with reception at this hotel. The free shuttle is only one way, not the way back. When we arrived, we were not told that we needed to book in advance the shuttle back. We came down just past 7 and checked out and said we needed to take the shuttle. Unfortunately, we had just missed it because it leaves on the hour and half hour. Then we waited the almost half hour for the next shuttle and it turned out that many had piled outside and got into the shuttle already, we could not get on and had to wait for the next one. The shuttle only seated maybe 8-10 max. Then another 30 min wait and then we sat down..finally...we waited outside to get in first..when it was again full and they said who didn't book a seat. It turned out we had to book one and we never knew that because neither the night receptionist nor the morning check out one told us. We were seriously unhappy about again not getting the shuttle and spoke with the lady in charge. She asked to see our bus tickets and we only had one. My husband said there were 2 of us and the receptionist that checked us out said it was ok. 7 euros for both. It turns out we had to buy 2. The manager asked the lady what happened and she LIED and said that she said it was 7euros/ person. 7 euros is not a lot of money nor worth lying about for us. We wouldn't cheat the system.

At least, they called us a taxi. However, it was raining that day and we waited..yes, get this...45 min before getting the taxi. By the time we got to the airport, it was over 2.5 hours later than we wanted to.

Besides that...the rooms are nice and the breakfast was plentiful.

Stayed for 2 nights 30th December til the 1st January. We were the only couple off the glasgow flight who used the free shuttle bus, the driver was very friendly and gave us some tips on places to see and how far Hoofddorp train station is from the hotel(about a 20 minute walk through a built up business area, no shops or restaurants that we seen)if we wanted to get the train from Hoofddorp to Amsterdam Centraal(be aware that you can't buy tickets on the train, if you don't have a ticket before boarding and the conductor comes round you'll be charged almost double fare, around 40 euros..we missed a train because the ticket machine doesn't accept notes, or Visa Electron and the little shop at the station was closed so we couldn't get change, ended up paying 50 euros in a taxi as it was our first night and we were desperate to get into town!). Anyway, the hotel is nice inside, clean bright reception, modern lounge area with a bar and free wifi, and free breakfast(we never made this, far too early!)but the staff were quite friendly and quickly gave us our room keycard. Rooms are quite small, but lovely, comfy beds, massive pillows, clean modern bathroom with walk in shower, and flat screen tv. There is also a hairdryer in the bathroom and shower gel & body lotion. I called reception at 9am on the 1st asking if we could pay for a late check out(didn't get in til 6am the previous night, NYE and all that..)and was rudely told no, no explanation why. So we had to check out at 12 on the dot, literally, a maid knocked our door at 1 minute to 12! Overall it's a great hotel, but just too much hassle getting into the centre, waiting on taxis or shuttle bus, train from either Hoofddorp or Schiphol airport, takes around half an hour, would suit business travellers wanting to be relatively close to the airport or people with their own transport(ie hired car)but definitely not for young couples who want to see Amsterdam and all it's sights!

Room Tip: All rooms have pretty much the same views...concrete and roads!
