We stayed at this hotel for a week. It was an Excellent experience. The rooms are very good and spacious with clean and decently sized bathrooms. The front desk staff was always cheerful and helped us when we needed. We went to Paris for two days so they helped us with keeping our luggage in their luggage room too. The... More

I decided to stay in this hotel after i searched for lot of favorable hotels in Amsterdam which have free parking. It was really hard to find them. But i think i has made a right decision choose this hotel, though Zaandam is located only 20 km far from Amsterdam. This hotel has relatively big free parking outside. It made... More

Wifi - if you need good internet stay on level 1 or 3 they have two modem points and the wireless will get confused and you'll have lots of dropouts. Not clean - on the surface it looks ok but I think they run a tight ship timewise with cleaning, we moved the dining table and there was a thick... More

This hotel is adjacent to the Zaandam train station. There is a large grocery store between the station and the hotel, which we found to be so convenient. We were a family of four (two small children). A baby cot/crib was already placed in our room. The beds were comfortable. The air conditioning worked great, although not really needed as... More

My husband and I stayed here on the last leg of a European vacation. We love the convenience and shopping options in Zaandam. The online photos made the hotel seem a bit shabby, but it was our only option in the area. We were pleasantly surprised at how modern and nice the hotel was. Check in was a breeze and... More

This review is based on our needs, I am aware that not everyone is looking for the same requirements in Amsterdam! The location is in Zaandam which is essentially a town on the outskirts of Amsterdam. You cannot wander out the front door and be in the city centre. Having said that, it is a two minute walk from the... More

We spend one night at this hotel during May 2015. Check-in was quick and efficient with the reception staff being very friendly and helpful. Our room was a decent size and very clean. It had a kettle, safe, desk, chair and a bar fridge. Some coffee/tea supplies were also provided. The bed was huge and very comfortable. Toiletries were provided... More

Booked 2 rooms for our family of 6. A double for my parents and a family room for my family of 4. The family room was a nice size complete with separate master's bedroom and a small kitchenette and dining table. The hotel will gladly provide plates and cutlery if you need it. There is a grocery store right between... More

This hotel had the some of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in. And after a day walking around Amsterdam a good nights sleep was important. The hotel is clean. The rooms are clean, very modern & comfortable and if you need somewhere to stay in Amsterdam I'd recommend it. It would get a 5 rating except to... More
