Staying near Amsterdam Airport

Amsterdam Airport Accommodation
Are you looking for a place to stay near the airport? There are plenty of hotels in the immediate area. However, they are not cosy and cheap. The area around the airport is not very interesting. Consider renting a spot in the city itself. In every area you will find plenty of hotels and apartments. The accommodations are mostly laid out in cosy Amsterdam neighbourhoods. That makes it immediately a lot more fun to explore the city.
For example, take the IJburg. In this area you will find the beautiful apartment The Green Tunnel. IJburg is a quiet and modern part of the city, located in a natural setting on the IJsselmeer. This inspired the owner of The Green Tunnel to decorate the apartment as ecologically as possible. But with the necessary luxury, it will feel like you are staying in a hotel.
The IJburg area is near the Central Station. Within 40 minutes you will be from the Amsterdam Airport at The Green Tunnel apartment.
