Travel just 6 minutes by train (one stop) from Schiphol to Amsterdam Zuid station and you'll find yourself in Amsterdam's Zuidas district. It looks like it means business (skyscrapers and all), but in fact it's a great bar and restaurant destination. Cheers!
Airport hotel? Yes, but not as you expect. Inside Schiphol Airport – just 4 minutes' walk from our door – you'll find a shopping plaza and a free mini-Rijksmuseum with some cool Dutch Masters on display. The train station connects you directly to Amsterdam Centraal in just 15 minutes. Get the camera!
