Renaissance Amsterdam Schiphol Hotel

Although it is an Amsterdam Schiphol Airport hotel, it is not located around the immediate surrounding of the airport. You will find Renaissance Amsterdam Schiphol Hotel in Aalsmeer. Just a 10 minutes complimentary bus ride from the hotel will take you to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam.

The location of the Renaissance Amsterdam Schiphol hotel is perfect in many ways. First, with a twenty minutes drive, you will be at the city centre of Amsterdam but you also get to steal the views of Amsterdam Bos right from your bedroom window. If you are looking for a quiet location with extensive parking spaces and a 24- hour complimentary shuttle service to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, then Renaissance Amsterdam Schiphol hotel will be prefect for you.

Classification and first impression:

Renaissance Amsterdam is a 4 Stars hotel.

The first impression you will get as you get to this property is the high level of security. The entrance to the car park is remotely controlled, the entrance has a porter on guard and the front desk provides a reassuring sense of privacy and security.

The design of the hotel is inspired by its lush environment, a nature theme from Amsterdam Bos and it provides an intriguing atmosphere, as if you are walking in the Amsterdam Forest with light peeking through the woods. The furniture offers a natural colour palette and soft fabrics, striking shapes and lines from De Stijl. The windows of Renaissance Amsterdam Schiphol Airport are accentuated by brass panels, in an abstract leave pattern decorated in reference to Amsterdam Forest which is adjacent to the hotel. The nature theme is well played out.

Overall impression of Renaissance Amsterdam Schiphol Hotel


The Renaissance Amsterdam Schiphol hotel was clean, modern with a beautiful nature theme. It is family-friendly and pet-friendly. You can dine in or out. The complimentary 24-hour shuttle service is fantastic. I like that the hotel is not at the airport. Opt to stay at the top floor for the stunning views of Amsterdam Boes.
