We had the opportunity to stay in De Fortuna hotel in January 2014. It was the highlight of our trip to Holland. The dinner was ( is there something better then 5 star) exceptional and mouth watering. From the ambiance to the wonderful staff in front and behind the scenes made this a must go to again and again.

The hotel is in the heart of Edam surrounded by canals and a small street. The rooms are small but quaint. Don't expect large US style rooms. I had the sink in my room, but so what. The restaurant was very nice and breakfast was fine. Free parking very close at a city lot.

Spent one night at the Fortuna on a bike trek around the Netherlands. Excellent service and best meal of my entire trip at the hotel restaurant. Perfect way to experience the Netherlands away from the busy city scene.

We spent two nights here and it was perfect for a stay in this area. Great setting on a canal and very comfortable. The meals were also great so, although there are other options in the town, we couldn't do any better than eating in. The owners were very friendly and engaging, and all the staff friendly and helpful.

Hotel is the most romantic small pictureus place you can imagine. By the canal and in the small quite streets of great Edam. Room was vey nice, clean and has all features. Breakfast is relativel poor but again the location and the rooms are more than average in Holland

We stayed here in May, weather wasn't at it's best but Edam was delightful and this family run hotel was very welcoming. Would advise that you have to navigate the one way system to find it and there is parking nearby over a small bridge. Once found you couldn't get a more picturesque setting by the canal and the flowers... More

We stayed here as part of a cycling trip arranged by Tulip Cycling. We were tired after a long day's cycling and the hotel was more than suitable. Old style in keeping with the rest of Gouda. Great breakfast in the charming restaurant. On the downside the rooms were a little cramped for an overnight stay and we found ourselves... More

My wife and I booked into this hotel/restaurant, through booking.com, for 3 days as we were visiting family in nearby Purmerend. Before we booked I read the reviews for the hotel on TA and they were largely very positive. The salient points were the idyllic location the good food and the friendliness of the staff in what is a family... More

The Dutch Optical Illusion, Hotel / Restaurant De Fortuna is just that. A small country exploits every square meter with taste, love, fun, respect ; hotel looks modest and cozy, but it’s an oasis of everything unique to the Netherlands, water, boats, birds, flowers, unpretentious homely interiors, an array of art of all kinds, a maritime presence( beautifully varnished tables...
