We stopped off here for one night on our way back to England from Sweden. It was near friends who live in Monnikendam - a delightful medieval "city" north of Amsterdam. Marken is an old farming/fishing village which was once an island in the Ijsselmeer but which is now joined to the mainland by a man-made isthmus. The older houses in the area are very close together and have wooden top floors with brick bases to withstand the frequent flooding when this was all part of the Zuiderzee. The hotel is more a restaurant and bar with rooms. But the few rooms they have are full of character and, as far as I know all en-suite. TV with international channels. Excellent views.
We dined with friends but breakfast here (charged extra) was served to order and was just perfect.
