Today we visited the Anne Frank house and then did a 'coffee shop' tour of the city. After that I got stoned. The line for the Anne Frank house was a lot longer this morning than it was yesterday. It is the most visited attraction of Amsterdam and the line is usually three hours long in the high season (I think we waited about an hour to get in and it is the end of September). Anne Frank was a young Jewish girl who went into hiding during the Second World War when Nazi's ...
... worth it.
After an emotionally intense morning, Laura and I made our way back to the hostel to meet up with the group for a bicycle tour of the city. We had a little bit of time up our sleeve, so took the scenic route back, stopping for a spot of shopping, exploring some souvenir shops, and admiring the beautiful flower markets. Mike's Bike Tours were conveniently located across the road from the hostel. Our tour guide, Karl - for lack of a ...
... angry faces and big lion-like manes! They had no Pygmy marmosets unfortunately, but these were cute anyway! From there we went back to the start to play with the squirrel monkeys again because that section was closing soon. We got more monkeys climbing on us, they're so cute! One of the workers was feeding the little guys when the big rhea bird came up and blocked her and wouldn't let her through! They had a bit of a stand off then the bird decided to follow her everywhere, it ...
... hard liquor which I am bringing with me to pass out to new friends on the river boat - everything from scotch, brandy, vodka, rum and something else I do not know. I put all the extra bottles in my suitcase yesterday and they were all replaced this afternoon. Bob, they even have several bottles of Heinekens but I am not saving those - too big. I could almost open up my own liquor store out on the street. I signed up for an afternoon tour to several small fishing ...
... intersection near this corner café (downstairs) smells like marijuana. Hannah got a hot chocolate and Kyle got a chocolate hash muffin. They gave us the hot chocolate in a glass mug, so we hung out and sipped it. There were some locals spending their weekend in here getting stoned. They sell loose marijuana, hash and pre-rolled joints. One group of kids around 18 had a large bong in here and used it to continue their ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Amsterdam Schiphol Hoofddorp
Should be a good hotel - but the staff have a real attitude problem!
The rooms are fine - clean and serviceable.
However the staff seem to have a superiority complex! the shuttle bus to & from the airport is useful. The restaurants are expensive as is the bar.
Not one of Crowne Plaza's best!
Recently stayed in this hotel and found its quite good, just with few problems. There is nothing special about this hotel, but in summary it gives good balance for value & money.
Whats that smell?
I booked this hotel because it was supposedly close to the airport. While it is not far (< 2 mi.), be prepared to wait up to 45 minutes for the shuttle. It never seemed to be on time, and the drivers had attitude problems. We asked for a room with a view and were pleased with the 90 deg. panoramic view. But the room was funky smelling and there were cigarette burns on the bed, it did not seem clean. The rest of the room was nice. If you want good food, go out. The room service food was mostly frozen or pre-prepared, never fresh to order. Unfortunately, there are no conveniently located restaraunts. The only plus was the excellent fitness center, pool and sauna. The next time I want to stay near Schipol Airport, I will surely stay at the Sheraton.
After reading good reports on this site, we decided to book a club room at this hotel for 1 night on December 27th. Having access to the club lounge with complimentary drinks, as well as breakfast seemed well worth the extra charge.
Stayed only 1 night in November but it was very nice. Locations was somewhat misleading, but still good as they have a great shuttle service to the airport. From there you can simply take the train anyplace if desired. Concierge was extrmemely helpful when we wanted to go into town. Taxi from there is roughly 50 euros but the train was 3 euros roundtrip to center station. Then catch the shuttle from the airport to/from your hotel.
For business travelers only!
We were originally fooled by the hotel's name thinking it was located in Amsterdam. But the truth is that this hotel is located a 30-40 minute taxi drive away from Amsterdam in a smaller suburb known as Hoofdorp. It is NOT a hotel for travellers wishing to experience the city of Amsterdam! The taxi ride from the hotel to Amsterdam costed us 50 Euros. We would have much rather put that money into a hotel closer to center of the city. Strictly speaking about the hotel though, it was a business class hotel with proper facilities and amenities. The room was very clean and service was good.
For Business Only
I have stayed at this hotel several times on business. trips I stay here because it is convenient to my meetings. I can walk to them. The rooms are large and comfortable with internet access as well as an internet kiosk in the lobby. There is only one restaurant and a small health center/pool. It is not located near restaurants or the airport. (There are two hotels within walking distance of the airport) But, having said all that, this is a very comfotable hotel with spacious rooms if business brings you to this area.
Nice airport hotel
We stayed here for 1 night coming back from Italy and going home. This was the least expensive hotel we stayed at for our 2 week stay in Europe. I was not disappointed. The room was nice and spacious. It is not located beside the airport so you have to take the free shuttle. When selecting the hotel, I was comparing with the new Sofitel, the Sheraton and the Hilton. All three were much more expensive so I was wondering why I should waste some Euros. After all, Crowne Plaza has good standards.
Great hotel when you have a morning flight!
We stayed at the Crown Plaza Schipol on the last night of an 11 day Amsterdam vacation. The free hotel shuttle leaves for Schipol at the top and bottom of the hour. From the airport it leaves at a quarter til and quarter past the hour and the ride only takes about 10 minutes. Room was large with a desk, sofa. Queen sized bed was okay. High speed internet terminal in the room was available for a reasonable 15 per day. We received a token for a free welcome drink upon arrival. The pool was nothing like on their website, about half the size. In the morning there was complimentary coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice available in the lobby from 5:30 until 8:00. Not convienent to downtown but if you have business in the area or an early morning flight this is the place.
Club is class
got a good deal on the room price , club room for standard room. Club really is class, club lounge (free drinks) great breakfast in comfort. worth paying for.central location, pool only tiny but who goes to Amsterdam to swim? pay a bit more and enjoy the good life.
