April 16 & 17, 2016: We arrived at our hotel for the next two nights in Amsterdam at the Hampton by Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in the Netherlands. Upon arrival, I already had launched into their Internet connection. Quick access wifi is always the best!
We were on the third floor where there were two single beds in the room and a nice huge window where the sun was just setting. It was a nice, clean room but didn’t have that much space inside the room to place belongings or luggage (unlike all the space we got last night at NH hotels in Germany). There was a flat-screen TV on a narrow table and also a computer desk at the same side.
You can see how narrow the room was, so we had space to only open one luggage at a time.
The bathroom was fairly small as well.
I liked the handheld shower though and how the shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel were in dispensing containers. (More environmental friendly than receiving individual bottles which some people take home as souvenirs.)
These beds were so comfortable. They were as nice as they looked! I also loved how there were power outlets where the bed was and also individual reading lights and controls.
The sun was just setting. This was what the view across from our hotel looked like:
The next morning, a continental breakfast was downstairs at the dining area and it was nice! 🙂 Breakfast was a bit rushed though since I had gone down a little later than usual.
It was a good decent breakfast with a fair amount of choices. The scrambled eggs and sausage were a bit dry though. The cold cuts were good and soft!
It’s so interesting to see how different hotels have different “egg holders” for the hard-boiled eggs at breakfast. This one was such a minimalist dish for the egg!
The continental/buffet breakfast area. Everything was arranged very neatly in a small contained space.
There were these boxes of different chocolate flakes and sprinkles that you could place on your bread!
Our friend took one of each and I took a picture of it.
A good variety of cold cuts and cheese!
My second plate where I also tried the chocolate flakes on my toast.
How cool! I had seen this on the Internet that in Europe, you can get chocolate flakes to put on your bread but now it was a reality to me. 🙂 The brand is called De Ruijter.
The dining area was quite large and there was even a waffle maker on the other side. I vowed to myself that I would try this on the second morning.
Stay #2 — The next morning:
There wasn’t space at the dining table area for us on the second morning since there were suddenly a lot of other tour mates there, so my mom and I just took a seat at one of the two-seater tables. This was what I got on the second morning for breakfast. What an exquisite arrangement of croissants, cold cuts, fruits, and more! ^_^
And of course, like I said, I tried out the waffle maker. There were instructions in Dutch and the batter was already conveniently made and ready to pour from a little container. It was easy to make and the timer beeped at you when it was ready. There were also bottles of syrup and powdered sugar ready for you to add to your waffle as well.
Yum! This was actually really good. These waffle makers exist all over all world, but somehow these really did taste like “Dutch waffles”. It must have been the batter!
Since we arrived early for breakfast this last morning here, I also had time to grab some vegetables before we left.
This was the background of the elevator! I look so sleepy here… haha.
One last view out the window of the hotel room before we left.
This was the room that we stayed in.
Bye-bye, Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol! It was a nice stay. I just wish the room was a little bigger to accommodate our luggages so that it would be easier to walk around and to pack and unpack. I loved the fast wifi. ^_^
