Hyatt Place Amsterdam is a fantastic hotel near the airport of Schiphol! I never heard about the Hyatt Place concept before, but was pleasantly surprised! The service specifically was great – from the front desk to the driver (they offer free airport shuttle service from/to the airport) – all employees were super to deal with. Most of the staff members are what they call “hosts”. They can check you in and serve you at the bar a few minutes later. How cool is that? Although the hotel is relatively close to the airport, you can’t hear the planes taking off or landing (but you can see the planes – always nice to look at planes right??).
For European standards the reception area is large and well appointed. You can relax in one of the cozy corners, have a drink at the bar or eat something in the restaurant. The bright lobby area has a fun set up and everything is available within one place: check-in, restaurant, bar and small shop. Although the hotel opened several years ago, everything still looked brand new! Check-in staff were super friendly and informative. We were offered a drink upon arrival which was a very nice touch and a great start of our excellent stay at the Hyatt Place Amsterdam Airport!
Loved the small business center corner with iMacs… Always nice to be able to print your boarding passes. The departures and arrivals at Amsterdam Airport can also be consulted there.
The huge room we stayed in was excellent! It had a sitting area with most comfortable couches, 2 televisions and a full bathroom with a great shower! The king sized bed was heaven! I should also mention the fantastic quality of their HD televisions! I was pretty Impressed by the size and quality of the room.
Working out is possible in the large fitness center. The equipment is excellent, up to date and very convenient. Free water and fruit is offered. I love running before or after a flight… It gives me a relaxed feeling. I love the location of the fitness facility, you are looking at a pretty busy road. Watching cars and people make you forget you are working out! 😊
Looking for business meetings? No problem at the Hyatt Place Schiphol! They have several meeting rooms in the hotel with the best facilities one could wish for.
Food and drinks, available in a wide variety, are at top level. Whether you are looking for a small bite or a full diner, everything is possible at Hyatt Place Amsterdam Airport. We had dinner at the Gallery Café where we enjoyed a delicious dinner! The menu is varied and it was hard to choose what to order as I wanted to try it all 😊 As a starter I ordered pata negra accompanied with arugula, shallots and balsamic vinegar. The pata negra was of a very high quality! The roasted rib eye was to die for and prepared just the way I requested. The portions are enormous and I that’s why I didn’t order dessert, but looking at the menu… they have plenty! As mentioned before, even if you are not looking for a full dinner, you can still get salads and sandwiches at the 24/7 Gallery Market.
Breakfast was very good and varied and there was something for most tastes and allowed you to explore different styles. Oh and you should definitely try out their omelet station. Since you are in Amsterdam, cheese is a must item on the buffet. Several cheeses are offered, all of a very good quality.
I would definitely recommend the Hyatt Place when you are looking for a hotel near Schiphol and would consider this concept for sure when traveling in the US (or elsewhere). The location near the airport is very convenient and their complimentary transportation to/from the airport is very easy to use. This is Hospitality with a very big “H” that Hyatt Place Amsterdam Airport offers here!.
