“Perfect for a touristy holiday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Myself and a friend stayed at this hotel for 4 nights during our trip to amsterdam.
We availed of the free shuttle from the airport, so handy and 20mins later we were in the hotel and ready to start the holiday!

Throughout our stay, we felt that the hotel was extra personal and the staff were kind.room was clean and bright, only downside was the no smoking but thats to be expected! Gijs helped us with directions around amsterdam centraal which is a short train ride away.

Plenty of amenities in the area if youre not up to going into centraal.

Planning our next trip and we will definitely be returning to this hotel!

Even though i booked this hotel for 3 nights, i checked out after one sleepless night.
The rooms shown in the pictures have got nothing to do with the old shoebox i stayed in.
I preferred to drive for 3 extra hours every day, then to stay in this so called hotel.
The room was tiny, noisy and very cold. As i arrived after midnight, there was no one to talk to and or help.
You could hear every sound from any other room in the hotel so do not expect a quiet stay here.
The shower had holes in the wall and after showering for 5 minutes,the steam activated the smoke detector and the alarm went off. Very unpleasant stay, i recommend this hotel to : NO ONE !
Avoid if you know what's good for you.

Pros: friendly & helpful driver.
Safe environment as it is mainly residential.

Cons: no elevator (those with big or heavy luggage beware), location is rather far from the nearest train station which is halfweg-zwanenburg

Note to bring your own toothbrush, toothpaste as these are not provided.

We arrived on Friday morning to the airport, called the hotel and we were picked up. That was all fine. Arrived to the hotel, and... shock! Nothing like the photos suggest. By the photos, we were expecting a modern hotel, semi new.... It's not, it's an old house with refurbished rooms only. So we went upstairs to the room... which was not done! Fair enough, we are humans and make mistakes, and the rest of the 3 days we stayed in there, the room was made everyday and towels were changed daily... but as a second impression of the hotel, it wasn't great.

On the following day, I wanted to use the 'spa bath' as it says when you choose the 'Deluxe Room'.... well, it's only a bath as the 'jacuzzi' does not work. Apparently the plumb was coming on Monday (day we left) - how unfortunate.

As nice as the room was, little details would have helped us liking it more. A kettle and some tea/coffee/milk/sugar as you get in any other hotel would have been a lovely gesture, as breakfast is not included in the rate, and 8€ per person for breakfast is very exaggerated.

Location is OK. The town is small, and it's got a maximum of 5 food service places (a Chinese, Italian, kebab, another restaurant and a sandwich shop), which are not cheap at all for where they are. Train station is 15 min away from the hotel, and they run very frequently, so that was good.

It's little things we've seen and learnt from other places we've been to that made us think this one was not good enough, and definitely not worth the money we paid. Would not recommend or come back.

Spent 3 night at the hotel recently. The hotel has a great plus which is the shuttle bus to/from the airport. Then it's very clean and it has a computer with printer which can be used in the nice hall. The staff is friendly and they give you useful information about how to get to Amsterdam. There is a cheap and very fast train to the Central Station but if you're not a walker don't stay there as the walk to Zwanenburg station is about 30 minutes, which is a total of an hour each day. It's pleasant but if you've already spent the day walking in Amsterdam can be tiring.
The rooms are small but provided with everything you'd need: the heater can get very warm and the tv has a big flat screen. The shower is powerful and nice but it can get some time to get warm. We didn't take advantage of the breakfast as they previous reviews were not great about it. There is a convenient baker wich serves coffees on the way to the station + a supermarket where you can buy food and drinks.
I would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: We stayed in the courtyard room. Maybe the room in the main building are bigger
