    SatisfactoryDrinkable coffee from a bean to cup machine. Comfortable and quiet. Very poor food and drink choice.
    AnonymousOctober 2018
    Needs ImprovementCannot get in as Priority Pass Select member. Only certain time.
    rayOctober 2018
    OutstandingLucked into this one from my girlfriend's Amex rewards card. Free Heineken on tap and fridges of free wine, place to charge a phone and food was plentiful, soups salads, crackers and olives. Was great.
    AnonymousOctober 2018
    SatisfactoryThis lounge is showing signs of age. The staff is nice, but the decor and furniture is worn out and the lounge isn’t very clean. Construction may play a role in the current state.
    FrazellSeptember 2018
    SatisfactoryReally grumpy and impolite woman at the reception, rushing everyone. Crowded but food was OK.
    AnonymousSeptember 2018
    Needs ImprovementTerrible lounge. Overcrowded and lacking basic standard food, you are honestly better off going to one of the terminal restaurants than visit here.
    Jeff KasterAugust 2018
    SatisfactorySmall, basic and crowded. Understandable as most airlines flying Schengen destinations use this lounge, as well as Priority Pass. Very limited food options, only some bread, and light snacks.
    HamadaAugust 2018
    SatisfactorySlightly better than sitting in the terminal. Too crowded during afternoons/evenings. Hard for limited staff and small kitchen areas to keep up with the volume of visitors.
    -M-August 2018
    Needs ImprovementSmall, no view, only fruit, cheese and bread for food. Not impressed.
    AnonymousAugust 2018
    Worth a DetourNice decorations, super slow Wi-Fi, food, drinks and mediocre food.
    LasseAugust 2018
    Needs ImprovementPoor selection of food. Eat before coming. Closed at 9pm so not for later flights. Very poor internet service - free wifi did not work 😥👎🏾🙅🏼‍♂️. Good work areas which are clean. Comfy seats.
    PhillJuly 2018
    SatisfactoryThe food was lacking but the lady at the desk was very warm and friendly. Had the food been better, I would have given a 3.
    YijiaJune 2018
    SatisfactoryBare bones, and actually makes you want to skip early to enjoy the much classier cafes and restaurants downstairs. They need to raise their game to at least compete with the free options at Schiphol.
    SaurabhMay 2018
    Needs ImprovementA couple of hours out from closing time, food and drinks were not being replenished and when I asked the staff, I was met with rudeness and indignant excuses. Comfortable space.
    GeorgeFebruary 2018
    Worth a DetourHas all the basics you would need.
    Andrew January 2018
    Needs ImprovementClean and quiet is about all I can say. The WiFi is poor, and the food situation is dire, especially at 6AM on a Saturday. This lounge threatens the credibility of Star Alliance benefits.
    NickJanuary 2018
    OutstandingSpacious seating, good food, quiet.
    RobJanuary 2018
    OutstandingThe service at the lounge is very good. There is good food available for breakfast, and there were enough seats at 7 AM.
    AnonymousDecember 2017
    SatisfactorySolid lounge, average food and decent selection of drinks. Was relatively quiet on a Sunday morning. Nice mix of lounge and work areas. Free wifi from Schiphol airport.
    AnonymousDecember 2017
    SatisfactoryVery busy lounge! Came at 9am on Sat. & had issues finding a seat. Not many food options. No clean mug for coffee & no one cleaning up after people. If you're hungry get food outside b4 coming in.
    AnonymousNovember 2017
    SatisfactoryFew charging points it’s almost comical. Very dim lighting. Did not make me excited to re-visit this lounge.
    NielsNovember 2017
    SatisfactoryLots of comfortable seating, hot couscous with a few vegetables, & Heineken beer on tap. Short on power outlets. I was there about 30 minutes in evening. My plates were cleared, tables wiped.
    HelenNovember 2017
    Needs ImprovementVery basic food. The fruits taste old. Literally saw a mouse running around the place.
    YoniOctober 2017
    SatisfactoryTerrible wifi, non functional power sockets, food is almost nonexistent. It barely qualifies as a "lounge".
    AnonymousSeptember 2017
    Worth a DetourDecent, basic lounge. Limited food, small, but clean and quiet. Reasonable lounge.
    AnonymousAugust 2017
    Needs ImprovementFood is scarce. No water bottles. Only fountain drinks.
    RyanAugust 2017
    SatisfactoryQuiet and comfortable. Medium variety of beverages. Wine/coffee etc infested with small flies. Made the cleanness feel very poor. 5/10
    MariusJuly 2017
    OutstandingThis lounge actually has good food and drinks. Only thing is that it's over crowded. That's probably because Priority Pass needs more lounges at AMS.
    ZackJuly 2017
    SatisfactoryWith a name like Aspire, you have to wonder what it's aspiring to... Perfectly reasonable and comfortable place to spend time apart from the terminal, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it.
    DavidJuly 2017
    SatisfactoryBasically a place to sit. Food is nonexistent, but you can get a coffee. Certainly not worth paying for, but better than sitting in the terminal if you're given free access.
    AnonymousJune 2017
    OutstandingAt 8:45 am food selection is sparse but fresh. Lots of spirits. Seating very comfortable and peaceful.
    NicoleJune 2017
    SatisfactoryFood and drinks are okay, nothing special. Very disappointed to find that a large number of electrical connections not working. Poor selection of reading material. Very clean bathrooms.
    AnonymousApril 2017
    SatisfactorySub par continental breakfast.
    DericMarch 2017
    SatisfactorySpacious and quiet on the opposite side of the snack bar. Minimal food selection. Comfy couches.
    AnonymousJanuary 2017
    SatisfactoryVery limited food options. Saw a mouse running across the floor near the food area, which made the already unappealing food that much more unappealing.
    AnonymousDecember 2016
    Worth a DetourQuiet and well located, good WiFi (airport and lounge) and friendly staff. I would pick this over KLM's a thousand times.
    AnonymousDecember 2016
    Needs ImprovementFood is awful, wi-fi is bad and they try not to honor agreements with partners such as Amex Platinum. Only go here if it your only option.
    AnonymousNovember 2016
    Worth a DetourQuiet retreat with typical lounge food and drink. Staff really stand out as cheerful and helpful.
    GregorySeptember 2016
    Needs ImprovementVery limited food. Come just to relax and have a drink.
    AnonymousJuly 2016
    SatisfactoryBasic bar and half decent happy hour food selection, with soup and a variety of snacks. Very dimly lit, so difficult to read. Lounge is segregated into multiple areas which keeps it quiet.
    DaveJuly 2016
    Needs ImprovementPros: very quiet, lots of space, very comfortable seats Cons: wifi, food and drinks are a pure joke If you can go there for free, do it! Otherwise avoid it.
    JasiuJuly 2016
    OutstandingA really nice place to rest and relax before departure. Decent selection of snacks and alcohol, and plenty of open seating when I was there!
    GarrettJune 2016
    SatisfactoryVery small food selection. But very nice and clean.
    MarkJune 2016
    SatisfactoryAt 1:30 pm, almost all snack stations are empty. Service staff only at the reception, not present in the lounge.
    Harry Zwarthoed June 2016
    SatisfactoryComparable to a US domestic lounge.
    KazuJune 2016
    Needs ImprovementVery basic lounge, hardly any food, bad coffee, mineral water only from fountain. Only ever go if you don't have to pay extra for it!
    Andreas May 2016
    Worth a DetourBetter than average. Nothing exceptional. Greek yogurt for breakfast. Everything is self serve, furniture is comfortable/clean. Solid B.
    AnonymousMay 2016
    SatisfactoryNice with enough seats but no tarmac view. Decent drinking options. Food options are even more terrible than an Admirals Club.
    SanderMarch 2016
    Worth a DetourClean and spacious. Good location, right after security.
    AnonymousDecember 2015
    SatisfactorySmall but comfortable & peaceful (Sat 14:45). Drink selection adequate (alc y non-alc). Food very simple - crackers, vegetables (but no sauce, dip), bread, potato chips, coleslaw & olives.
    LenDecember 2015
    Needs ImprovementA mediocre lounge, modern design, the standard range of drinks, but basically nothing to eat. Nor much to the facilities. There is clear potential for improvement.
    flyingphotographerDecember 2015
    Needs ImprovementExtremely crowded, only food was pasta and biscuits. Not work the money!
    AnonymousDecember 2015
    SatisfactoryThe lounge was crowded and the food/beer selection is quite poor. But it is similar to other airport lounges so this was no surprise.
    StephanNovember 2015
    SatisfactoryRenovated and good.
    AnonymousSeptember 2015
    SatisfactoryQuiet and comfortable, with adequate drinks, but lacking in food quality. Service excellent.
    BjarteMay 2015
    Needs ImprovementCrowded, unfriendly check-in staff, cleaned too infrequently with a poor selection of food and drink. Coffee is sub-standard. Very little upside to this lounge.
    AlexApril 2015
    SatisfactoryVery small lounge, few snack options, water comes in a glass bottle so you can't take one with you on your flight, not all spots have power outlets. On the upside: clean and modern lounge.
    NachoMarch 2015
    Needs ImprovementAgreed with other reviewers - staff seem unhappy which reflects the service you receive. Maybe they don't want to be there?
    TobyFebruary 2015
    Worth a DetourWas in the lounge for a 9 am flight to Prague. A few breakfast snacks, plenty of self service wine and liquor, beer on tap too. Not a bad place to spend some time but nothing amazing.
    ChrisJanuary 2015
    Needs ImprovementBasic lounge with terrible coffee.
    MarkJanuary 2015
    SatisfactorySalon sympa mais pas grand choix de nourriture. Alcool par contre a gogo!
    VinceJanuary 2015
    Worth a DetourNot sure why everyone doesn't like this lounge. Staff were all friendly, adequate seats (was a Monday night, around 7pm), alcohol and more snacks than a domestic United Lounge. Be thankful.
    AnneJanuary 2015
    Needs ImprovementComfy seats to relax, but small snack and drink offerings.
    KulpDecember 2014
    Needs ImprovementThe only lounge free for Star Gold travelers at Schipol, where SkyTeam dominates. Comfortable area, multiple drinks available, but food choice is the poorest in the world.
    X.December 2014
    SatisfactoryCentrally located to the BCD gate area. Comfortable and well spaced out seating. Could use a refresh but generally clean. Snacks and beverages are the basics and limited.
    ThierryDecember 2014
    Needs ImprovementThe coffee from the Nescafé machine was disgusting as others mentioned. (I made some tea instead.). Food was limited but the crackers & cream cheese were fine. Somewhat crowded.
    JillSeptember 2014
    SatisfactoryThis lounge is okay but nothing special. Since the airport has a lot of construction now (September 2014), this is at least a comfortable place to relax and have a drink and a snack.
    LDSeptember 2014
    Needs ImprovementThis is one of the worst lounges I have ever been at. Crowded, lazy staff and very little food options (unless you want to eat chips and cheese only). Much better to go to Starbucks.
    DanielSeptember 2014
    Needs ImprovementThis poor lounge lacks even in the most basic aspect: the coffee. The coffee is simply undrinkable. Even the staff knows it and acknowledged saying they hope to get a new machine soon.
    EyalAugust 2014
    Needs ImprovementNice comfortable, well lit lounge. Good drinks selection, but the snack offerings leave a little to be desired.
    JonathanJuly 2014
    SatisfactoryA bit overcrowded. Good wine and beer.
    MortenJune 2014
    Needs ImprovementSubstandard and disappointing.
    TimMay 2014
    SatisfactoryThis lounge is clean and has good service. However, everything else is subpar: limited food options, small space, and spotty Wi-Fi.
    NalleFebruary 2014
    SatisfactoryBesides the potential long lines and crowding that can detract from the solitude in this lounge, it's a fairly good place to be.
    DerwinDecember 2013
    SatisfactoryThe unfriendly staff makes checking in a very long progress. In addition, the food is very limited.
