Novotel Amsterdam Schiphol Airport only opened its doors a little more than a year ago, but the four-star hotel is already the number one hotel in the Hoofddorp area, according to reviews on TripAdvisor. “Many guests compliment the hotel’s pleasant casual atmosphere and outstanding service,” says general manager Floris Licht. The white building with the peculiar windows is an attractive design by Dutch architects Mulderblauw. The inside looks surprisingly light and fresh, with an abundance of wood and greenery. “The architect has paid a lot of attention to the lighting and furniture,” says Licht.
