If you don't find any other Olivia guests to go from the airport to the hotel when you arrive in Amsterdam, I highly recommend the Hotel bus transportation called "Connexxion". They provide transportation to many of the Amsterdam hotels, including the Doubletree Hilton Hotel.
The train is also pretty easy, but if you have more than one piece of luggage, it is not the easiest to navigate. The hotel is so close to the Central station, which makes it very convenient. The good news is that most people do speak English, and you should always ask for help if you need it. Always keep an eye on your belongings, as in any public transport place.
A Direct Rail Link connects Schiphol International Airport to
Amsterdam central station and is the fastest and
most convenient way to get to the city center. Trains run every 10 minutes (airport train schedule) from platforms 1 and 2 in the
main arrival plaza and cost just € 3.60 for a single journey. Have change on
hand to use the ticket machines to avoid the
lines and € 0.50 surcharge at the ticket office. From October 2005 a fine of 35
Euro will be added to the fare if you do not have a valid ticket with you on the
Airport Shuttles run by Connexxion depart every 10
minutes with service to more than 100 hotels throughout the city. Tickets cost €
15,50 one way, and can be purchased inside the main arrival
plaza. The tickets be purchased at the
Amsterdam Shuttle Desk in Arrivals 4 and at the bus stop A7.
