Staying At or Near Schiphol Airport

I’ve stayed at Amsterdam Schiphol more than any other airport and there are several good hotels and restaurants located inside the terminal complex or within a short walk. is the best site for reserving a rental vehicle at Amsterdam airport.

For the Sheraton, Hilton, and citizenM hotels, follow signs for the Arrivals Hall (and train station). For Mercure and Yotelair, they’re on the security-side of the airport so directions will depend on what gate you’re arriving from.

In the area near the train station there will be signs for the airport hotels. From here it’s an easy walk down an indoor walkway to the Sheraton and Hilton (the citizenM requires a short walk outside).

The Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol are the two best located hotels at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Both are a short indoor walkway from the arrivals hall. The citizenM Schiphol Airport is slightly farther, requires going outside (though there’s a covered walkway), and is not quite as easy to find – but I still consider it an easy walk and a fine choice. Both Mercure Hotel Schiphol Terminal and Yotelair Amsterdam Schiphol Transit Hotel are located “airside” (inside customs and immigration) and are good for a short stay for passengers in transit.

With all the above hotels within walking distance of the airport, there’s little reason to venture farther for airport accommodations. But if you did want more choice, all of the following are a short drive to Schiphol and provide free shuttle service to and from the terminal (free parking is sometimes included in the room rate): Hyatt Place Amsterdam Airport, Holiday Inn Express Amsterdam, and Novotel Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

If you want to stay in Amsterdam but close to the train station for the quick ride to Schiphol then art’otel amsterdam is the best choice. It’s a charming boutique hotel and a 2-minute walk to the station – and then 15 minutes by train to the airport. Many bars and restaurants are nearby and the Red Light District (more bars and restaurants) is within a short walk.

If you’d like to stay close to the airport but avoid airport hotels then the charming small town of Haarlem is a great choice. Haarlem Hotel Suites is just off the main square and steps from several wonderful restaurants (Table 24 is my favorite).
