Stopovers in Amsterdam Schiphol can be hit and miss. Reports from the popular travel site http://www.sleepinginairports.net/ range from “Better than Expected” to “Poked and Threatened with Arrest”. Not great to continue your journey fresh and relaxed. Our question though is “Why would you want to?” when Qbic Amsterdam is just round the corner. We have clean, funky rooms with relaxing beds and hot showers starting at 58€ a night. Travelling tired can be an irritating experience, and arriving at your final destination exhausted can be dangerous if you plan to drive. A study in 2000 by the British Medical Journal reported that sleep deprivation can have some of the same hazardous effects as being drunk. It’s true that a lot of the glamour of flying has gone, but flying calm and rested can make you like an oasis in the scramble.
