“Great hotel for business travel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

Very good hotel for any business traveller. 1 train stop from Schiphol airport, shuttle booked if needed. Overall nice and clean, staff are very friendly. Priority club members get a free drink in the bar, restaurant serves good food and the restaurant staff are very friendly and welcoming. Many thanks to the member of staff Johan who is always an example of professionalism.

Really nice hotel, all of the staff are really friendly and cannot help you enough. Particularly my waiter, Simon, who spoke fantastic English (possibly better than myself) and was very helpful, setting up a table for me on the couch rather than in the main resteraunt.

Will definitely be staying again.

I've been staying at this hotel regularly for around 4 years. Whilst the facilities/rooms/food are all fine, the reason I return is for the people. It is extremely rare for a corporate hotel to attract and keep staff who genuinely seem to care about their hotel and you as an individual. This matters more to me than some of the more pretentious boutique offerings. I recommend this small oasis in the middle of Schipol for business or pleasure.

I have stayed in this hotel on several occasions and have always enjoyed it (see my previous review). It particular it offers better facilities than most Schiphol hotels (pool, gym, executive lounge) at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, on this visit everything went a bit wrong.

The hotel shuttle was late, which was irritating as the weather was rather unpleasant.

Check in was slow and were initially not given an executive room, although we had booked one. This was corrected by the receptionist, but she seemed quite unfriendly for some reason.

I was a little disappointed by the executive room, so I rang up reception and asked if we could pay for an upgrade to a junior suite. I was told no suites at all were available. Since the hotel seems quiet I checked this on the internet and found that a junior suite was available. I rang reception again and was told once again that no suite was available. I then asked to see the "duty manager", who told me a suite was available. But they would only allow me to upgrade at walk in rate and not the rate advertised on the hotel website. (which implied 100 Euros more as oppose to 30 Euros more). This didn't strike me as good value, so I decided to stay in the room I had. 30 minutes later the same "manager" said he had checked with the "general manager"and we could have the upgrade for nothing. This of course was very nice, but an hour of ringing a very unhelpful reception and being mislead had left me feeling very un-relaxed.

Next problem was dinner. I have eaten at this hotel before and found the food of an above average standard. Not this time! My first course of swordfish with potato salad featured undercooked swordfish and a salad with the consistency of the huzaren salads you can buy in Dutch petrol stations. My main course of lamb featured perfectly cooked lamb, but cold and seriously undercooked boiled potatoes. The markup on wine appeared to be a factor of five, which I find excessive. Service was not very efficient and the staff have the rude habit of reply in English even when you speak to them in Dutch.

The catering in the executive lounge in this hotel has always been disappointing and this has not changed. The evening "snacks" available were crisps, peanuts and six small spoons of a smoked fish salad. Not acceptable for this standard of hotel. Breakfast in the club lounge is advertised on the hotel website, but was not available

Finally there is a hotel branded glossy magazine in each room informing guests of local shops and restaurants. This is of course quite normal. However, in this case it included 4 pages of large glossy adverts for prostitutes. Moreover, there was an editorial section telling you that you could expect to pay 50 Euros for full or oral sex from a window prostitute or go to a club for a more "classy" experience. I am anything but a prude, but I do not believe that an international hotel should be promoting prostitution. Moreover, I'd have a hard job explaining the adverts to a curious child.

Dear TravelingCelt,

Thank you very much for your feedback with regards to your most recent stay in our hotel. Feedback like this gives us the possibility to adjust our services and products where needed.

We are sorry to hear that - on your last visit - 'everything went wrong'. This is not the service we are aiming for.
We agree that we should have handled the room upgrade in a more professional and effective way. We have spoken about that in our team.

I have passed your comments about dinner and the Executive lounge to my F&B Manager. We hope to give you an excellent F&B experience, as written in some of the other Trip Advisor comments, in the near future.

Finally we understand your concern about the adds and information in the Nightlife section of the Amsterdam Exclusive. We provide this magazine, being an informative tourist information guide, created to inform the guests of over 100 hotels in Amsterdam about all aspects of the city.

Again we are sorry for the inconvenience you suffered during your last stay but we hope you will give us another opportunity during your next stay to show you that this was an exception to the rule.

With kind regards,

Maurice J. Jansen
