For those travelling by air, the nearest major airport is Amsterdam
International Airport Schiphol.
Schiphol airport is one the biggest airports in Europe and only 18 km away
from Amsterdam. Schiphol has only one terminal which makes it an easy and
comfortable (transfer) airport. About 90 airlines fly into Schiphol from and
to 230 destinations. Directions through the building are marked by colour
coded airport signs: yellow signs direct you to transfer desks and gates, green
signs guide you to the various amenities. The arrival hall at the ground floor
is called Schiphol Plaza. Schiphol Plaza offers shops, bars and restaurants,
bank services, travel and tourist information and the railway station.
HOW TO GET THERE:
The hotel is easily reached by car and by every form of public transport.
The cheapest way is to take the train (six times an hour). The railway station
is located at the level of the arrival hall. Tickets can be obtained in
Schiphol Plaza for NLG 6,25 (NLG 9,75 first class), look out for the ticket
counter of the NS (Dutch Railway company). Do not buy a return ticket if you

you want to continue your travel in Amsterdam by public transport. Travel time
is only 15 to 20 minutes to Amsterdam Central Station. The hotel is situated
directly across from the Amsterdam Central Station.
You can also choose the KLM shuttle service, which stops in front of the hotel
and various other hotels in Amsterdam. You do not have to fly KLM or stay in
