Accessed airside from Lounge 2, near Pier D, Yotel is the perfect sleeping spot for tired travelers with early-morning flights to catch, and it's also one of the few Amsterdam hotels at which booking by the hour does not have a nefarious meaning. Combining quality with modernism, the hotel succeeds in providing decent accommodation at tiny prices and it does this by automising everything from check in to the 24-hour supply of basic snacks and drinks at "Mission Control." 

The rooms themselves are reminiscent of sleeping pods aboard a space ship, some with bunk beds, some with doubles, but all equipped with power showers and flat- screen televisions as well as built-in desks on which to perch your laptop. Little extras like luxurious organic bathroom products and crisp Egyptian cotton bedding make the lack of space more palatable. The Yotel is closed until August 2015 due to terminal renovations.
