This was a nice hotel with a nice view. The breakfast buffet was extensive and items changed each day. Only issue I had was with internet access. The Wi-Fi is free, but terribly slow and almost non existent in the rooms. They have a computer in the lobby that I assumed was free to use, but the computer (running windows... More

The hotel was clean and the staff friendly, however if the term balcony ever meant anything to you it was certainly not as we expected or the view from it, the balcony was 2ft x 2ft and overlooking the door or the kitchen where understandably the staff go to relax cannot see where to attach picture. The other thing is... More

Right in the heart of the tourist center of Volendam. Really cute little hotel. Lots of charm and character. Breakfast is great, although a tad expensive. Rooms are a bit dated, but relatively comfortable and the balcony we had was cool, had a nice cup of tea before bed. Very relaxing. Walls are a bit thin though, heard a crying... More

The Spaander in Volendam is a lovely hotel. There are nice views across the Markermeer, towards Marken if you request a room at the right side. The rooms are fine, but I would have expected some tea & coffee making facilities (maybe I am comparing to typical UK hotels where this is the 'norm' these days). The hotel has a... More

Definitely it is not the place for just a single night. You have to spend more nights and days at Spaander to fully enjoy the charm of it. It is Holland spirit and soul, welcoming and cosy venue full of color and character. If you plan an overnight break do not choose this hotel, you will be disappointed as you... More

I expect this hotel would rate as good in another setting but it cannot transcend its situation. Volendam is a slightly odd - a loud, brash seafront of 10 or so bars and restaurants, populated by masses of aggressive young drunks. I guess a stag do would work here but not the best place for a family to visit. The... More

We were a last minute check in and ended up getting a great rate. This is an old building that has a lot of character and is fun to be in and look around. The only down side was that there were a lot of stairs to climb because there was no elevator. They also included a breakfast with our... More

Disappointed that for a 5star rated hitek the bedroom floor is not heated! Its freezing cold n no bedrm slippers supplied. For supposedly €100 a nite it is a big disappointment. However luckily the reception girl is very friendly n polite n very informative. The room is small with a unique bathtub. - a sitting tub. Not too bad if... More

Hotel right in the middle of a very touristy parade of shops....weird, to say the least! Bit like going to Southend, but without the amusements, just a never-ending parade of tacky souvenirs and photos taken in Dutch costume. Once inside the uninspiring building, we had to negotiate round tables with diners to the reception area, which was to the rear... More

We stayed here for two nights in July. We were in a triple room, three separate beds with no option to push them together since they were in wooden boxes and they were all very uncomfortable. We were in room number three, which I do not recommend. It was very stuffy and hot with only one small fan. The hotel... More
