1 afternoon, 1 night Amsterdam just hang around at an airport hotel?

Jump to last reply

After 5 weeks in Europe we will be flying home to Australia from Amsterdam. We were there last year for a few days, this time its purely because we are using points for all the flights and this was the only city that offered flights home that suited our timing.

So we will fly from Madrid to Amsterdam, arriving in the afternoon and depart 10.30am the next day. My question is, I'm pressuming we should just stay at a hotel at the airport and maybe go into the city for the evening (or alternatively just hang around at the airport hotel)

Can anyone suggest a nice way to spend this afternoon and evening? Maybe a nice dinner and a stroll around the city? It will be cold, mid January.
