Etap Hotel Amsterdam Airport: "Nice low-cost-hotel" Schiphol Hotel Tip by henrikp

Schiphol Hotels: 39 reviews and 53 photos

This is a quite nice hotel. As Etap is like a 1-star-hotel it is really ok, although it is new, gues they built it in 2002 or 2003.

The acces to the rooms is via a code, that you type in a keypad at the roomdoor!
Each room has a kind of kingsize-bed, with two matrasses and over that kingsize-bed the have built up another single bed. You have TV, with some international channels, radio and also departure and arrival information of the airport. You'll also find an alarm-clock somewhere built in your bed ;-)
The toilet can be found in a something like a cabinet ;-)
The sink is in the sleeping-room.
There is no air-conditioning but as you're in europe you won't miss it! ;-) Each room has a window and you pay a price per room sharing this with up to three people!

In the hotel they opend an internet-cafe, but that is not to cheap! There are also some maschines to get some candies etc. There is also a kind of dash with some information about amsterdam and you can also collect there some special offers; take some cards where it says like "A amsterdam channel cruise for EUR 10,00 instead of EUR 12,00"

Next to the reception there is the hall where you can take breakfast EUR 5,00); consisting of toasts, rolls, jam, peanut-butter,choc-cream, honey, milk, orange-juice, cereals, tea-bags and hot water and coffee.

The is a huge car park right in the front of the hotel. To get to/from the hotel by public transport you have to take the shuttle-bus to/from airport and from there with train to amsterdam-city.

All in all I can say it is a very nice easy and clean hotel!

I can recommand this hotel for aviation-spotters! ;-)
