First of all, Van der Valk Hotel Volendam isn’t in Volendam. It’s actually located in the middle of beautiful countryside. Village(s) of Edam-Volendam is half an hour walk away so be warned. This hotel can be a good base to explore Northern Holland though.
I would recommend getting there by car, parking is free and parking lot is big enough. If you are limited to public transport, bus from Amsterdam Central Station will get you here in 30 minutes. Buses use dedicated lane and stick to timetable even in rush hour. There’s a bus stop right near the hotel.
We (party of 4) have stayed for a week attending exhibition in Amsterdam. Had absolutely no trouble with anything. Staff was very helpful. We chose this hotel for room prices that were lower than similar hotels in Amsterdam itself.
Hotel has modern look and feels clean and professionally run. Standard room is large enough. Bathroom very clean, spacious and seemed designed with much care. Beds are comfortable; the hotel itself is located off the main road so it is very quiet.
Breakfast was good; my only complain being no choice of fresh vegetables. For some reason only tomatoes were served for breakfast though hotel’s restaurant offered wide range of salads for lunch and dinner.
Wi-Fi in the room is free, unlimited and excellent though you have to login via KPN hotspot first. Skype worked well.
Pool in the Health Center is quite small and can be overcrowded. But hey, it’s free!
