I have spent almost a week at this hotel - had no alternatives as there was a training organized in there. Must say that I had very low expectations as the hotel was located quite far away from Amsterdam (~10km).
Well, I was positively surprised in many ways - the hotel is indeed a bit far from the city but the bus connections are just perfect with buses commuting every 15 minutes - the price for a return trip to Amsterdam: 10 euros both ways. You can also enjoy a walk or biking through some really interesting places around, including trips to Volendam (~3km) and Edam (~4km).
The hotel is fairly nice although the interior design is about old fashioned (at least for my taste). Also, my room was kind of dark as the lights were not so bright - but, it was very clean and cozy.
The hotel staff (same as with ALL other Dutch people that I happened to interact with) were EXTREMELY NICE, KIND and helpful. They were there to try to assist me with every issue that I've raised.
The breakfast at the hotel is ok - not a lot of choice though, but everything that was served was fresh and somewhat tasty. Perhaps the hotel management should consider adding some creative arranging of the food as it seemed to be a bit monotonous...
There is an indoors swimming pool (free of charge) as well as fitness, sauna and massage. All these require payment of a reasonable fee.
All in all, I liked my stay at this hotel and would like to thank its staff for their courtesy and kindness and wish them all the best.
Ask for a room facing the small pound which is opposite the hotel's main entrance.
