Default Amsterdam taxis - help me choose

I'm so confused!!

Will be arriving from LAX at Schiphol in a week and need a taxi to Hotel Pulitzer. I do not want to take the bus or train.

I have read the cost is about 40 Euros. Taxi2airport quoted 32 Euros but I have to meet them at the Sheraton. For you seasoned travelers out there can I just select a taxi from the queue? I'm not worried about a few Euros after 14 hours of flying.

Thanks!!

We have used this place twice without problem you just prebook then go to their office in the airport after baggage claim

Or you can just get one outside the airport if you do not want to pre book one

Indeed expect to pay around E. 40,- if you pick a cab at the airport. Be aware that in season you might have to queue.
The Sheraton is next to the airport, but easy to reach through a corridor going to the parkinggarage.

The taxi queue at Schiphol moves very quickly and the quality of the cars is top class. When I visit Amsterdam and only have a short journey to one of the business parks just alongside Schiphol, I get a pre booked taxi which collects me from the Sheraton hotel. Easy to find.
The Pulizter Hotel is a great pick! Love it! Especially the ramble to breakfast.
