On Tuesday 28 May there will be an official strike of all public transport in The Netherlands; trains, busses, trams, metros and ferries will not be driving from 5AM Tuesday until 5AM Wednesday.

  • If you’re coming to the hotel from the airport Schiphol, you can reach us with a taxi or with the Connexxion Hotel Shuttle bus.
  • If you’re going to the airport or to the train station from the hotel, the reception can order a taxi for you. Tip; order the taxi on time, it will be very busy.
  • If you’re going from the hotel to the centre, the reception can order you a taxi, or you can rent a bicycle (not possible to reserve, subject to availability).
  • The strike will cause a lot of inconvenience for all travellers. It will cause traffic jams and long waiting times for taxis and the Hotel Shuttle bus. Please keep this in mind if you need to be somewhere on time!
