Luckily, Amsterdam hosts a lot of hotels, from cheap and basic to luxurious and expensive.
If you are living in Amsterdam (or The Netherlands), there is not really a need for a hotel or appartment, but if you are coming from abroad you really want a bed to prepare yourself for the run, and for the day after.
You will probably fly-in at Schiphol Airport and pick up your registration-number and ID on Saturday, the day before the TCS Amsterdam Marathon.
Getting from Schiphol Airport to the TCS Amsterdam Marathon
From Schiphol Airport it’s just 1 trainstop and a 7 minute ride to the Amsterdam South Railway Station. From here it’s about a 10 minute walk to the Olympic Stadium-area where the Start/Finish is of the Amsterdam Marathon and where you pick up your registration in the indoor sportshall: ‘Sporthallen Zuid’.
Alternatively you can take the Schiphol Express bus 197. This bus takes you in about 20 minutes from Schiphol Airport to a busstop exactly in front of the Olympic Stadium.
In total travel time bus or train, take you about the same amount of time and costs. The only small disadvantage of bus 197 is the fact that it’s most of the time crowded since this bus runs eventually to the city centre where all the musea are. Hence; a lot of tourists!
