I'm going to Amsterdam for the first time. I want to know how to reach Hotel Nes from Schiphol airport.

I want to know about both options - Metro and private taxi and price for both. I heard that Metro is cheap but taxi is safer.

Are both options available 24 hours a day?

Address of Hotel Nes is Kloveniersburgwal 137- 139, 1011 KE

  1. Via Train

    • Train/Metro/Tram are only available from 6am until half past 12 the next day (00.30)
    • Schipol to Amsterdam will cost you around 4.30 Euro by train. You will alight at Centraal Station. After that you can walk. If you don't want to walk use tram which cost you 2.60 Euro.
    • Suggested route:

      From Schipol, use InterCity train towards Amsterdam Centraal (around 18 mins)

      From Amsterdam Central, walk to Centraal Station (2 mins)

      From Central Station, use tram no 9 to Diemen (8 mins, 4 stops) alight in Rembrandtplein

      Walk to Kloveniersburgwal 137, Binnenstad, The Netherlands(3 mins) enter image description here

  2. Taxi

    • Like other cities, taxi is 24 hrs available in amsterdam.
    • Estimated fare during the office hours is around 39.33 Euro. (7.50 Euro for the first 2km and 2.20 Euro perkilometer after that)
    • Estimated time needed to reach destination : 25 minutes.

There is a train from Schiphol to Amsterdam Centraal Station. As far as I can remember it is easy to find.

From Centraal Station, this is 1.3 km by foot or 17 mn, according to google maps (a search using public transportation is available as well on that page).
