“Well-run and comfortable.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This is a lovely small inn with easy driving access and free parking (look for the Hotel de Magneet parking sign across the street and just before the hotel, then park behind other buildings). We had a room off the beautiful patio. Everything is spotless, the bathroom is very up-to-date, the young couple running the inn are helpful and charming and the breakfast was very good and was served in a pretty dining room. The location is great - just out of the hub-bub of the city center but within a few minutes walking to the old harbor and the center. This is not a large or luxurious hotel but a well-run and very comfortable inn that is a very good value. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I don't know what the rooms are like inside the main building, but we really enjoyed walking thr...

There's little to add to the other reviews in that this place is great value for money, it's in a good location (quiet but near the harbour and the centre), has its own car park just over the road, is really clean and the owners are always around and are helpful. Hoorn is a beautiful town and with the station only ten minutes walk away, Amsterdam is an easy day trip. We stayed for five nights and would certainly stay again.

Our little room, #10, was spotlessly clean and overlooked the quiet courtyard and pond. The full-sized bathtub with shower, rather than a shower only, was an unexpected bonus that we appreciated.

The included breakfast was set out beautifully in the dining room - I liked the variety and little extras ... service was warm and cheerful and the dining room well appointed.

The hotel is located near the four harbours and easypeasy walking distance of the old town centre - for sight-seeing and shopping. We were there for the old time Cheese Markt re-enactment done on Thursdays during the high season, and enjoyed it.

We stayed for three nights and can recommend it highly if you will be in the area.

Hotel De Magneet is very clean but lacking in hotel facilities as it closes each evening at 10pm and closes all day on Sundays after breakfast until breakfast Monday. The only access we had during those times was to the bedrooms and garden like a hostel. It was very disappointing for us as there was a group of 6 people, two people aged 90 and 84, and it would have been nice to sit and chat in the hotel. I only saw one room which was used for breakfast and evening meal, there didn't seem to be any foyer or lounge. It was very clean and the person who looked after us was very friendly and helpful but not helpful enough to stay open for an extra hour the night we arrived at 10pm.

Hoorn is a beautiful place and De Magneet is a beautiful surprise! We found everything we were looking for. Staff very helpful, room very clean and we liked the mini apartment (12) we did stay. Position is absolutely perfect.
Very recommended.
We did prefer (good choice) to stay in Hoorn instead of staying in Amsterdam and having a day trip to Hoorn (30 min journey).

Room Tip: We only stayed in room 12 (mini-apartment) and was quite, clean.

We arrived here with 16 in our party and a baby. The hotel is very pleasant and the staff are very helpful. The Hotel is about 10 minutes from the Centre of Hoorn and is based down near the Harbour. Its location is ideal to explore lots of little streets and old parts of the harbour on the way to the centre.

Rooms? The rooms are very clean, great shower and comfortable. We stayed in room 16 with a small baby and it was a tight squeeze, looking back we could have asked for a bigger room (some of our family had some) but we didnt bother. In fact the rooms outside the main building are actually small chalets.

The breakfast was the usual continental bread and cheeses, eggs, etc, and set us up nicely for the day.

All in all, very little complaints from this lovely hotel on the south east part of Horrn and as said already a super location to explore the town of Hoorn.

Room Tip: If you have a baby request a room like room 11. Huge space!

Great hotel with lovely little 'apartment' rooms around a littel courtyard. I've stayed in Hoorn a few times and this is by far the best hotel for relaxing and enjoying the town. A wee bit of walking requried to get in to town but not too much for it to be a bother and the town is so lovely it is perfect for strolling around in.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are great.
