Hello! I'm arriving at Schiphol Airport at 6AM on a weekday and would like to attend a walking tour that begins at 11AM from the Jordaan area. However, I will have a checked bag that needs to be dropped off at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel - City Hall, which is at Valkenburgerstraat 14. I plan to use the train to get downtown.
My question is - if I have to pick up my checked bag and go through passport control (non-EU passport), then swing by the hotel and be in Jordaan by 11AM, is that possible? I recall in London we waited for almost 2.5 hours in passport control. I am also open to a left luggage storage options downtown if that would save time. Thanks in advance!
