Amsterdam December 2018

I have fallen in love with an amazing European city! I came back from Amsterdam on Friday night with my daughter, after a two night break, flying into the Dutch capital city from London Gatwick it only takes 45 minutes! We have both travelled to France before, but this is our first trip to The Netherlands. We booked a package trip with Expedia which offered flights with British Airways and EasyJet. We stayed at the Novotel Schiphol Airport which is 10 minutes by car from the airport or if you want to explore the city, 5 minutes by Sprinter train into a town called Hoofddorp where the hotel is beautifully located. Absolutely perfect hotel location, and very convenient.
The Novotel is the best hotel in the area. My daughter was in heaven with a delicious continental breakfast in the mornings with great variety and selection. There are also chefs on site during breakfast to make you something of your choice too. The hotel boasts great entertainment for the kids, a huge games room with an Xbox and lots of exciting things to do. There is also a computer area with state of the art Apple Mac computers. The staff are lovely and friendly and very helpful and accommodating. They definitely go above and beyond to make sure you have a nice stay. We booked two executive rooms on the top 13th floor with gorgeous views and a free mini bar. The huge king size beds are very comfortable and the lighting is perfect and changeable according to your taste, as well as the temperature controls and air conditioning to set however you wish.
 
 
The bathrooms are minimalistic and modern, very stylish and very clean. A selection of Fairtrade toiletries and essentials are available for guests exceeding what you would expect and need for a trip. My favourite feature is the walk in rain shower. There is also a fitness centre which has a lovely calming, therapeutic ambiance, and nice relaxing music I really wish I had more time to use the gym, I love to work out. So impressed with the Novotel Schiphol Airport, it definitely sits proudly at the top in reviews and ratings as one of the best hotels in the city. It is definitely worth a visit and cost effective. Check out my videos of the hotel and other site seeing videos of the Jordaan district and the iconic I Amsterdam sign in the city centre. I love Amsterdam and will be back February 2018.
