Also, public transportation is well-developed. No problem reaching the center directly by train or bus. This is why sometimes, especially if you’re a business traveler, you may consider choosing a hotel near the airport. Most of them are relatively cheaper than city-center hotels and they often have a very good standard. They may be a great base for city exploration. If you’re interested, here’s a list of the best hotels close to the Amsterdam airport.
