Hi, What is the best way to get from Airport to Hotel. I heard train is but looking at websites they seem to suggest there is no direct train from Airport to Amstel Station. If not, anyone know how much a taxi would roughly be? Or if any alternatives? Just want a direct route rather than messing about with changing trains etc.
Go from the airport SChiphol by train to Amsetredan Central and change trains there for Amsterdam Amstel or take the metro from Amsterdan Central to Amstelstation. 5 minutes walk from the station you find your hotel..
you are right, no direct train. you hv to change at Centraal, all metros go to Amstel,
it is a short walk from the station
i prefer the road going left to wards Dapfine resturant once you exit the station and cross the raod at the next aignal, this avoids the steps on tge underpass
I forgot to mention in my earlier answer that if you prefer Uber over the authorized taxi service, you must go to the "Departures" level for pickup. (The Uber app will not work on the arrivals level.) I find the rates FROM the airport to be equal between the 2 companies. And if you make an appointment with your taxi driver for the return trip back to the airport, they will offer a 15% discount, which is equal to Uber's rate.
Normally, I prefer trains, trams, metro, and buses for getting around A'dam, but after a long international flight and having to lug around a suitcase, I like the ease and convenience of a taxi. There are stairs (a flight of at least 12 steps going down) on the walk from Amstel station to the hotel, which I would not recommend taking if you have luggage. Can easily catch a taxi outside the airport for about $45.
It really is very easy to get to the Hotel from the airport and I would suggest the train as the journey is remarkably quick. Journey time with very regular trains into Amsterdam Central takes only about 20 minutes. From there transfer to the adjacent Metro and Amstel Station is only 4 or 5 stops down the line. Buy an Amsterdam Travel ticket in advance which at €26 for a 3 day ticket is excellent value and covers you for the airport train in both directions as well as unlimited metro and tram journeys. This is by far a cheaper option than a taxi and offers more flexibility.
We got the train to Amsterdam Zuid and changed to a 51 tram to Amstel. It took about 30 mins
