Working at Olympic Hotel Amsterdam

Olympic Hotel Amsterdam officially opened in April 2019. Every hotel opening is a massive challenge. It’s about creating a team of people in a new environment who work closely together to achieve goals.

The hotel is located next to the Olympic Stadium, surrounded by sports fields and the idyllic Stadiongracht featuring 309 rooms for athletes, business guests and leisure. Check in Cleaning is responsible for the housekeeping of this impressive hotel. Our team of 35 colleagues take great pride in keeping all rooms clean and tidy to offer the guests of Hotel Olympic Amsterdam an unforgettable experience.

Check in Cleaning uses an innovative housekeeping app called Go Tickin’. Everyone in the team get’s a device with a personal account where they can easily see which rooms to clean, the status of rooms and any specific tasks per room. There is also a convenient overview of empty rooms, the amount of rooms to be cleaned and a handy communication area to send messages to your colleagues.

A day of work at Olympic Hotel Amsterdam

The first Supervisors of team Check in Cleaning start at 7am. After a cup of coffee, they schedule all rooms for cleaning and start to divide tasks among all team members. Simultaneously the Houseman distributes all linen across all floors, with each floor having its own linen, towels and trolley. Around 8:00 all Room Attendants arrive in the canteen. Also they start the day with a lovely cup of coffee and continue to prepare all cleaning equipment required for the job.

At 8:30 the whole team has a quick meeting in which we discuss extra focus points. A quick pickup of all keys and devices. Everything clear and ready? Let’s start!

All the other Supervisors arrive around 10:00. After a short meeting they will start to check cleaned rooms based on the information from the Go Tikin’ app. This quality check is the last step before rooms are delivered to the hotel reception.

12:00 is break time! Join the team for lunch in our canteen. The canteen is equipped with a microwave, coffee machine and fridge.

After the break the team focusses on the last rooms. Every room must be cleaned before 14:00, because that’s our check in time and new guests will start to arrive.

Around 14:00 we start to clean the rooms of all stay overs. We believe that cleaning stay over rooms is an essential part of a great guest experience. After all rooms are clean, we double check the corridors, trolleys and canteens are well organized. The shift for Room Attendants end at 16:30 while some of the Supervisors finish at 18:00.
