with a traditional "Commercial Traveler Hotel" feel. Excellent restaurant. My room was very comfortable, though TV viewers will need binoculars. Free WiFi - no extras. The only thing people need to be aware of that access to and from Schipol is a 40+ Euro taxi ride each way, which is great if you want a quiet Dutch location. Uithroon is a neat place to pass some relaxing, non-touristy, R & R.

Welcome to Het Rechthuis aan den Amstel, 4-star hotel in Uithoorn, Netherlands , a surprising place for a relaxing holiday …More
I booked this hotel for my first two nights and last night in Europe. We flew in and out of Amsterdam since it had a direct flight from our home airport Portland International. I selected Best Western Uithorn (pronounced outhorn) Airport hotel. I assumed that it was near to the airport and would have a complimentary airport shuttle. Upon arrival we caught the shuttle to the Best Western. Only it wasn't the right one. The free shuttle did not go to our hotel. We ended up taking a cab to ours. It turned out that other than the original finding of the hotel it was a much better location than the other. It also has a 25 Euro (one way) shuttle available on request. The bus service from Uithorn to central Amsterdam was very convenient. Sure, you can stay right in the center of Amsterdam, but the rate at the Best Western Uithorn was much thriftier. From the airport take the #300 or any other that is going to the Amslelveen Busstation an transfer to the #170 going towards Uithorn. At the Uithorn Busstation it is only a two block walk to the Best Western. Make sure to buy the all day ticket from the bus driver at the airport as they do not offer transfers. The ticket will then be good to take the bus back to Central Amsterdam as well as ride any bus or city tram as well for that day.
