My husband and I arrived in Amsterdam on an overnight train trip from Budapest (via Munich) at 9:00 a.m. on a Sunday . We arrived at Hotel Zandbergen a little before 10:00 a.m. fully expecting not to be able to check in because of the early hour. Henk and his staff made us welcome instantly by offering coffee, a map, and suggesting things to do nearby while we waited for our room to be ready. They were very busy with guests checking out but managed to get us into our clean room by 11:00 a.m.! We stayed in "Evert's Room," a lovely "apartment" in the building next door to the hotel. We had a kitchen, sitting area bedroom and bath plus a charming balcony that overlooks a lovely garden. We were enjoying our complimentary glass of wine with lunch on our balcony when my husband accidentally closed the balcony sliding door, stranding us on the balcony! Thanks to a friendly neighbor hearing our pleas for help, Henk was summoned and we were rescued. This is just one example of many throughout our stay where the service was outstanding. The beautiful Vondel Park was only a few blocks away. We exercised in the park everyday and used it as a shortcut to the city center. The hotel is also only a few blocks from the Museum Quartier but in a quiet neighborhood so we slept very peacefully. Henk, the owner, and his staff worked tirelessly to make our stay pleasurable, giving sightseeing advice and making sure we were comfortable. We truly felt as if we were staying with friends.
