This is a short 20 minute trip away from the airport (costing about 5 euros per person for a single ticket) and is the central hub of Amsterdam providing bus and tram routes all over the city as well as access to the metro system.

I caught the airport train to Centraal Station, just so convenient for Amsterdam. The shops at the station are also suitable for visitors, dare I say Starbucks was excellent.

Arrived at the airport and took the train to Centraal Station and back to the airport. This station is easy to navigate and perfect for tourists trying to find their way around.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Yes of course, they let you take but I would recommend a normal size suite case.
