Hourly Hotel in Amsterdam (for non-illicit purposes)

Jump to last reply

I am doing a bike and barge tour of The Netherlands. So excited! I arrive at 9:00 am on Saturday, 7 May. We cannot access the boat until 4:00 pm that afternoon, a fact that I have triple confirmed. I have learned through bitter experience that because I cannot sleep on planes--even with prescription sleep aids--I *must* nap the first day as soon as practicable after landing. When I don't, I end up with a cold 4 days later every.single.time. I do not want to ruin yet another trip by getting sick!

I am therefore looking for a place where I can sleep for a few hours from around 11 am to 1 pm. Check in at most hotels appears to be 2 pm, not to mention they are SO expensive for just a few hours.

I looked into the Yotel nap pods at Schipol, but unfortunately they can only be accessed by passengers with a valid departure ticket. As Amsterdam is my final destination, I cannot reach the Yotel pods (I corresponded with customer service to confirm this).

I also looked on the airbnb site to seek accommodation with a local, but the prices are similar to a hotel. I am wary of hostels because a dorm is unlikely to be quiet enough to nap during the day.

Am I missing any brilliant ideas?

Thank you so much for any input you may have!
