Very clean comfortable cabin-style rooms with basic shower and toilet. If you are claustrophobic or have limited mobility, then look for a traditional hotel but for catching some much needed sleep and a shower during a long layover, this is the place. I got in...More
I am glad these Yotels exist and I hope the company thrives. There are two kinds of Yotels: more or less compact hotels in big US cities and a number of YotelAir locations in Airports across Europe. I stayed at an airport If you travel...More
I had a long layover at Schiphol and needed a quiet place to work and, if necessary, sleep.
It took a while for me to find the hotel, but when I did, check-in was convenient and quick. I've never been on a cruise, but my...More
Although it's a good idea to have a hotel inside the terminal that you can rent by hours, there's 3 factors that kind of ruined my stay:
1. I had difficulty finding the hotel within the terminal, there's not enough indications
2. There was a...More
We’ve had good luck with the in-terminal hotel(Different chain!) in Gatwick airport so we thought we’d give this one a shot. Bad choice and we will not make that mistake again. Whole different animal. Very difficult to find first of all and since it’s inside...More
Everything you would expect from a luxury hotel in a small space. Located uniquely inside the airport terminal Schipol airport, Amsterdam. Yotel Schiphol Airport is located within the secure transit area, a …Moreshort walk to the departure gates. It is located in the lounge 2 area (top level). Less

The Yotel is on the non-Schengen side of arrivals, so you can go straight from your arrival flight to the hotel. However, if your destination is in the Schengen zone (most of Europe, but not the UK) then you will have to go through immigration (passport control) to get to your flight. You won't have to deal with your baggage however - it will be checked through to your final destination. Passport control can be busy at certain times of the day - particularly when most of the transatlantic flights arrive in the morning. So be sure to give yourself plenty of time. It might be better just to get to your gate and find a convenient bench, as I wouldn't think 5 hours is enough time to benefit from Yotel.

Yes....you do need a boarding card to enter the are where Yotel is placed. Even you do not need to fully leave the terminal, you need to show boarding card to go from hall to hall and finally enter the hotel. I am not sure if the "used" boarding card was valid from going from terminal to terminal without exiting the airport. If I were you, I would ask the Yotel directly.

My understanding is different from those who have already replied. The hotel is on the 'secure' side of the airport, so as long as you have not passed through passport control and collected your luggage, you should be able to get into the hotel directly.
What is not clear to me is what would happen with your luggage if you don't claim it right after the flight, but leave it until after your nap. Airlines do have places/ways to store unclaimed luggage, but I don't know if you would want to risk that--or if there is risk involved. You might ask the airline you're arriving on.
I take you to mean that you want to take a nap after arriving from the US and before 'entering' The Netherlands, not that you want to nap before boarding a US-bound flight. You also don't say that you are transferring in Schiphol to another flight and want to nap between them -- in that event, you would not be claiming your luggage.
I don't think it matters to passport control whether you go through immediately after a flight or a few hours later after a nap. But you should check with someone who knows this. I'm just guessing.
Once you go through passport control, you are outside of the secure zone -- and then, you cannot access the hotel. At that point, you might as well pick up your luggage, store it in a locker, return via passport control and security, and go to the hotel. After your nap, you will have to re-enter via passport control, and then go claim your luggage from the locker. It is do-able. But for all that, why not just go through all this once and head to a hotel either near the airport or in whatever city you're headed to?
