Where to stay in Amsterdam

Keukenhof was on my bucket list to visit for a long time and finally it happened this year(April 2017) more about this later. When it came to choosing place to stay we narrowed it down to Hilton Schipol as it is was all about Location Location Location.

The location was ideal to and from airport with handy walkalator to the hotel from the airport. A good travel connection to the city centre, direct buses are available from the airport to Keunkenhof, the ease to take day trips to nearby towns.

We booked via booking.com website. The hotel is modern, equipped with restaurants, bar, spa and a gym.

The rooms were modern, spacious and comfortable. The bed was massive and one of the most comfortable one I have slept in after a day out and about. Waking up to sunrise like in the photo and airplanes taking off was fab. The room has all the amenities with good in room Wi-Fi connection.

The breakfast was included with our stay. The choice was plentiful with a live counter for waffles, pancakes and eggs. Top Tip – arrive early to avoid the crowd as it gets really busy.

A good selection of food is available for in-room service for a small fee. The service was quick and smooth and food  so delicious we ordered some mushroom soup, fries and a pizza which was filling and fresh.

We opted for a spa evening on our last day for foot reflexology. Esme, the therapist at the spa had a magic touch, it is what we needed a good spa day and restful sleep before the journey back home. Tip – Book an appointment so that you are not disappointed.

A special thanks to Melissa at the reception though we had an initial hiccup with our bookings she sorted everything out for us which made our stay smooth and memorable experience. It is people who run the place make your stay special otherwise it just rooms with bricks.
