Alexis had been longing to try one, so she and Linda shared one, only to give it to Harlea and I because they couldn't eat the raw fish. I only tried a tiny piece, but Harlea captured every second, from ...

So now, we’re back in London, bags all emptied and bedroom set-up writing this final entry. Like leaving the camper, it’s not sad to say goodbye to the blog (to be honest it’s caused me many grumpy moments) but rather it’s the start of something hopefully more exciting.
Thanks for reading, goodbye for now and like Jase mentioned on Facebook, donations ...

I saw her own handwriting, her cut out pictures of starlets pasted to her bedroom walls, the markings on the wall noting all the kid's growth. I also saw her detention/arrest card and a photo of her father having returned to the house 20yrs after they had been dragged out. I don't think I have seen a photo express so much sadness before. I walked up the same staircases and past the bookshelf door that ...

We saw heaps of broken umbrella's discarded on the footpath along the walk and when we finally got to the red light district we took shelter in the waiting area of the Peep Show.
I had heard from other travelers that the quality of the 'workers' in the Peep Show's were far superior to those ...

trying to escape the rain. Colourful umbrellas marched down the
streets as people shopped or tried to find an indoor activity.
Between dodging the umbrellas and trying to avoid being hit by a bike

what the locals called a typical Dutch restaurant, sampled every
cheese possible at a cheese shop where the workers were dressed in

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel and Conference Center Haarlemmermeer
Great location, comfortable hotel
Very professional, comfortable hotel in which to spend a night before a flight. Executive rooms are well-designed and very pleasant.
We stayed at the Sheraton with our new son while in transit to the US. The staff was very accomodating, especially given that it was New Year's Eve and they were quite busy. A crib was provided without delay and the room was very comfortable and had all necessary ammenities, except for an iron and iron board as has been mentioned. We chose to eat in the airport given the 20-40 Euro prices for simple meals from room service.
The location can not be beat if you need to stay near the airport. I got an off-season rate of 129 Euros on December 3, 2004. At this price, the hotel was an acceptable value. The room price included a full breakfast buffet but at 8am they were out of most of the hot food selections, which were never replenished during my thirty minutes in the restaurant.
Stayed here in June on a business trip to Holland. The hotel was very convenient as it is located in the terminal at the airport. This is great when you have an early flight back to the US or are getting in very jet lagged.
My partner and I booked two nights at this hotel from the 3rd of July. We were celebrating an anniversary and wanted to have an enjoyable weekend in Amsterdam. We booked an executive room as it offered superior facilities including access to the private executive lounge where a complimentary breakfast is served in addition we were told that beer, wine, tea and coffee would be available up until 11pm each evening.
It is possibly going a bit too far to rate this hotel as a five star but it is definitely a good four star standard and if, like me, you can get the room at three star prices it becomes something of a bargain. The twin room cost me about 95GBP per night through Expedia.
Was very disappointed with the quality of this hotel. Didn't even have robes in the rooms! Room was only 3 star quality. Prices are way too high. I stayed for 2 nights with my future wife as a treat for her during christmas. I was definately not satisfied. There are some 3 and 4 star hotels not so far away that I know have better than this hotel in room quality etc. It is good that Guests have 24hr leisure centre access. But the steam room was broken. There was no locker keys supplied in the changing room. Overall. NOT WORTH THE MONEY.
Using the advice previously posted, I avoided the high phone and service charges and had a great stay at the Sheraton. Staff were very nice. Upgraded to a "smart" room as a Starwood elite member.
Huge advantages of staying at the airport is that you save on cab fare, can literally roll your bags to check-in if you have an early morning flight, and the trains into the city run every few mins and takes 10-15 mins. Why schlep all your stuff into the city?
Gives new meaning to the word "ripoff"
If you are intransit at Amsterdam Airport, this is one of the hotels (the other is the Hilton) that is attached to the airport building. You pay for this convenience. The rooms are ok. Meals and other services are extremely overpriced. If you need to eat, make a phone call, or use other services, take a stroll back to the airport building. You will save at least 50%.
Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid.!
This hotel could not be more full of hidden charges. Don't use the phone or minibar, or even eat in the restaurant, unless you want to pay more than anywhere else (including 5 star hotels) in Holland. The rooms are at best adequate, but when the extra costs are factored in, this hotel is one of the most overpriced in the world. If you stay here, picture me saying "I told you so" during your days of frustration following checkout.
