Sleep

There are quite a few at or near Schiphol.

  • CitizenM is a relatively new concept/hotel that is right outside the main terminals, with which it's connected by a walkway protecting you against the rain. Regular room prices start at about €70 for a double but regular promotions occur. Rooms are relatively small, but decorated fantastically and smart. Its innovations will surprise you! Good hotel, especially after a late arrival or before an early departure.
