Hotel Ibis Schiphol Amsterdam Airport (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)



Hotel is located about 10-15 drive from Schipol airport, there is nothing in the immediate area other than McDonald’s which is about 10 minute walk away. The shuttle bus comes every 20 minutes back and forth to the airport. Despite what other people are saying, I found the service fine but maybe I was lucky as the large coach was always there when I needed or at least 5 minutes later. It drops off and picks up right outside the right side of the exit of Schipol airport. Be warned the bus also shows Novotel on the side, they use the same bus in which to goes to afterwards.


The room is your standard ibis room dingy with no luxuries but was ok, it was clean, quiet and had enough plugs and adequate lighting. The bathroom was quite Japanese hotel style as in a raised unit all very plasticky with a shower and toilet. Plenty of towels but no real amenities, only shower gel attached to the shower and soap by the toilet. There was a very small TV but controller didnt work, I believe you have to purchase a card and insert into the remote to use it. Wanted to check this but kept calling reception in which nobody answered in ten minutes.


There are 3 restaurants I believe did not use any of them as decided to have dinner in Amsterdam after the horrendous trip advisor reviews about food, did not want to risk it. The only facility I used is WIFI in which is not secure but works fast.


Staff at reception were very nice upon check-in, it was smooth process as booking already made on Accor website. Nobody at reception though answers the phone in which is poor service.
Overall the room was 64 Euros without breakfast and TV, which is expensive compared to most parts of the world but then again other nearby airport hotels were more. It is a simple hotel for one nighter only. Would have been 3 stars if the TV worked.
