“not good quality/price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We got the small room for 95€ but you need to pay 9€ for the Marken Parking. You can't reach the hotel with the car because Marken is car-free. Breakfast is not included with the price and it's quite expensive (like many hotels...)

Beds are not very good and the room equipment is quite old, but the bathroom was new and good. The hotel is quite noisy although the area is very quiet.

Pretty nice, we booked the suite room which was at the very top of old part of bulding the stairs were a little diffcult to get up with the suitcase but hey thats like most old dutch buldings, great view across the rooftops of Maarken,

If you drive you need to park in the car park which is on the main road and about 10 mins walk which is a pain with the bags, dont try to drive into town the locals get most upset,

Maarken itself is very quiet and a lovely place to spend a day.

Cute and romantic hotel in the characteristic island of Marken, two minutes from the bus station and a few metres from the little port...with the bus in 40 minutes you arrive in Amsterdam or you can take a walk to the lighthouse in Marken seeing a lot of nature and animals.
Really recommended!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room - but beware if this sort of thing is a problem - the stairs are VERY steep

The Hof is on the lovely island of Marken, which becomes a lot lovelier in the evening when the coach parties disappear, but even during the day, there are great walks and cycle rides that quickly take you away from the crowds. We had a lovely room at the top of the main building with views to the lake on 3 sides. You need to be a bit nimble on your feet as the stairs are very steep. Dinners are not cheap (c€37 a head), but they are delicious. The Azul Spanish red wine is good value at €24. The staff are friendly and helpful. Only small downside, the breakfasts (at €15 a head) are always bread, croissant, cheese, ham, egg, fruit salad and tea or coffee (very good coffee). Bit of variety would be nice.

We drove through the area and decided to have dinner in Marken. We came in a little late, but kitchen was still open. We came into a full of ambiance filled dining room and were offered the 3-course dinner for 36 EUR. p.p. Very good and reasonable priced. Recommendable.

We just loved our stay in the Hof van Marken. The hotel is nicely located in this old Dutch town close to Amsterdam. We stayed in a cosy room (the suite) and we enjoyed great views of the lake / sea and the meadows. The owners did their best to make our stay feel like a holiday. We would highly recommend the restaurant as well. The chef is keen on using products from local fisherman and farmers. We did not know how he did it, but the combination between the food and the wines was excellent.

Room Tip: The suites have great views
