The hotel is really sweet and nice. It is located directly beside the river. You can see a great old houses and windmills from your room's window. The room I stayed was really spacious, the sleeping area is upstairs and a living area downstairs. The room is decorated nicely very vintage feeling. My bed was really comfortable but so sad...

You've seen the pix of Zaanse Schans with the windmills? Well, what I never realized was that some of the green buildings, you can actually stay there overnight! They actually have 6 large rooms, all with King beds and luxury decor. You can check in, & then go visit several working windmills on foot (extra cost.) You are staying in... More

It was a very special stay for me, we realy wanted some privacy... We got the beautiful room at the back overlooking the river. There was a private kitchen as well...we almost didn't leave the hotel....it was still cold outside Beautifull breakfast. Super friendly people all in a historic building.

Sharon is such a very kind, obliging, and anticipating host. The sleeping room in the attic floor of the house Aan 't Gloop is the perfect honeymoon sweet. Quiet and with a amazing panoramic view on Zaanstad, the river Zaan, and the windmills of Zaanse Schans. But mind your head! The edge of the door is very low.

We arrived early in Amsterdam, then traveled by train to a stop close to the Zaanse Schans area. We walked about 10-15 minutes to the bed and breakfast through a nice little neighborhood. Once we arrived at Heerlijck Slaapen, we were warmly greeted by Sharon, the owner, who graciously invited us to have some breakfast with the other guests. That... More

A very special place to stay. Wonderful location overlooking the beautiful Zaan river and the windmills. Rooms and facilities were outstanding and exceeded our expectations. Sharon is a lovely host and took care of every little detail to make our stay more enjoyable and comfortable. Walking distance from the Koog Zaandig railway station. Bike rental facility and all the sight... More

I couldn't have asked for a more romantic or private setting. Sharon (your host) is a great lady and very friendly. The room t'Glop was overlooking Zaans river with views of the windmills the area is famous for. My boyfriend loved the place and its historic charm (watch your head at the doors). The breakfast had everything you could ask... More

A unique hotel. It comprises of three adjoining 17th century wooden houses that were apparently uprooted several years ago and transported by an engineering miracle to the opposite side of the river to become part of an historical area preserving Dutch heritage. Within walking distance are several working windmills, also on the riverbank and each with a different function: timber... More

We have had a fantastic holiday staying with SHaron at a wonderful apartment in this perfect bed and breakfast. It is hard to decide whether it was the exceptional hosting or the amazing place that was the most memorable . We stayed 5 days spending two days enjoying the local area including a truly lovely cycle to the next town... More

Heerlijck Slaapen lives up to it's name, "a good night's rest," and then some! It's difficult to know where to start, because everything about this B&B is beyond belief. Sharon, the owner, greets you with a smile and her wonderful outgoing personality. In no time at all you'll feel like she's your best friend in Holland. The hotel is quaint,... More
