Good place to hang out. Close to Amsterdam. The Bird park is wonderful but you have to go there during the week, because of its popularity the locals rock up on the weekend, with their kids, and pack the place out. The river cruise was great too.

Went on a businesstrip to Alphen and stayed at Van der Valk - Avifauna for 2 nights. Didn't see the hotel when it was bright, but walked around in the park at night. Would love to come back with my family to take a better look at the birds and the park. Great service, cheap, good breakfast. Very friendly people... More

I lived here due to business travel, so only stayed one night. The room was very clean and comfortable. There is a bird park behind the hotel and a river in front of the hotel. If you are a tourist in a holiday, not in a business trip, it's worthy to stay here some days for the relax. By the... More

This is a pleasant hotel set in the lovely grounds of a bird park. We were visiting for a few days as part of a coach tour. The hotel was ok, very clean, rooms acceptable, nice comfortable bar etc. The eating arrangements were a bit off putting for us as we had to use two different restaurants both outside in... More

I like the birds - I took a lot of pictures of them. Very appropriate for families with children. I like also the green park in itself. The hotel is in a quiet place, even if close to a road, and there are also boats for short watertrips (during the summer). The hotel is located close to Schiphol, Amsterdam, in... More

Great Hotel with a few small things, no tea/coffee in third floor rooms. No air conditioning in the rooms, which means in summer it gets very hot. Great restaurant, Very clean rooms and bathroom. The Bar is a little small, especially when it is busy.

We chose this hotel as a base for our day trips. It is pretty centrally located. The bird park is nice and the birds didn't bother or sleep as others have said. The clean room is relatively large. The beds were OK, not more. Watch out in the summer, there is no A/C. Bathroom spacious with tub and shower stall.... More

This hotel is clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast buffet is great - it has a wide selection of choices. For dinner the restaurant is just ok, but I suppose acceptable for Netherland's standards.

Rooms very large, after check in you have to cross footpath to to room block, rooms nice, a bit dated overall but nice. No complaints, good nights sleep. Will be back again next time in the area. Staff very helpful and bar staff likewise. Likewise all drinks well made

This is by far the best hotel in town (although there are not much other hotels in Alphen). Good service and nice rooms. The only minor was that there is not an A/C in the rooms so it was a bit warm dutring the night. You can open a door to a balcony but everyone can enter that balcony, so... More
