DIRECTIONS TO THE CENTRE/HOTEL
There are several ways of travelling to the Moevenpick from Schiphol Airport.
Whichever terminal you arrive at, you must make your way to the SCHIPHOL PLAZA: all transport leaves from there.
€4.50 SINGLE TICKET € 9.- OPEN RETURN
All trains to Amsterdam Centraal Station (CS) leave from PLATFORM 3 (but not all trains on Platform 3 go to Amsterdam CS: check the departure boards on the platform).
You must buy your ticket first before you descend to the platform: either at the yellow machines in the Plaza or at one of the 8 booths at the TRAIN TICKETS AND SERVICES desk.
Trains go every 10 mins or so. The journey takes about 20 mins. Amsterdam CS is not a terminus and trains often stop for only two minutes before moving off. Get ready to disembark when the PA announces your arrival.
Then go up to the front of the station and take Tram #26 to Ijburg. It is only one stop and you will see the Moevenpick looming up on your left.
(Tram ticket available from driver or conductor (in the rear) or you can purchase at the Tourist Information Building opposite the trams.
