The Zandbergen is in a great neighborhood just outside of the main tourist area with lots of good restaurants, bars and shopping close by. You can walk through Vondelpark and be at the Leidesplein in a few minutes. From there you can easily walk practically anywhere in Amsterdam. Our room had a balcony overlooking a small park. The breakfast was very good. Henk and his staff are very friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive.
