“Why stay in Amsterdam!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We spent five nights here and enjoyed every one of them. Check in and check out were a breeze, the rooms were clean, comfortable and quite roomy. As everyone else says the hotel is right beside the train station, yet you never hear the trains. Very easy to get to Amsterdam Centrall from here and a great place to return to after the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam, relax on the deck over the canal with a cold beer or glass of wine, heaven. My wife made full use of the indoor pool while I used the sauna/steam room – both complimentary.
We caught the train direct from Schipol, Zaandam was the third stop – direct trains run every 30 minutes.
Zaandam is a great little town, take your time and walk down the shopping mall to the far end (about 10 minutes) then turn right to the restaurants in the square – plenty of choice. Along the way are supermarkets and department stores plus a variety of smaller stores and coffee shops.
From Zaandam we also walked along the river to Zaanse Schans – about an hour away. Lots of working windmills and arts and crafts. You can catch a bus or train to and from here from Zaandam.

We’d highly recommend this hotel and look forward to returning.

Dear BazinBrisbane,

It’s very nice to read that you have noticed the positive location of our hotel. You can easily escape from the busy city of Amsterdam and enjoy the luxurious wellness and spa facilities our hotel offers.
The renewed city centre of Zaandam is indeed a great place for a shopping spree with lots of shops and restaurants.

We are truly delighted to read that you would recommend us and we’re looking forward to give you a warm welcome back in our hotel.

Kind regards,

Monique Dijkhuizen

We stayed 4 nights at Inntel Hotels Zaandam. This hotel's location is simply awesome! Our room package did not include breakfast as we had decided to opt out of it. Guests get to enjoy complimentary access to the wellness club, gym and indoor pool. But unfortunately we did not have the time to utilise it. The room is clean and spacious and there is complimentary WiFi in the room. Do take note that a tax of EUR2.20 is imposed by the city at per person per night.

The only glitch that we encountered was during checkout. The receptionist claimed that someone has used our room number to sign for breakfast and he wanted to charge us for that. We definitely did not do that. We had left the hotel very early on that day as we have pre-booked a day tour (Volendam, Marken and Windmills). We had our breakfast from Mcdonalds which was nearby the meeting point. In the end, the receptionist did not insist. I almost wanted to tell him to go check the video surveillance tapes for the culprits. From this incident, perhaps the hotel (and all other hotels) should look into stepping up controls? Other than this, our stay was fantastic.

Fantastically located especially if you chose to stay outside Amsterdam. Train station right next door giving easy access to all areas. Room clean, bed exceptionally comfortable also provides free internet service. Negative point only we found it expensive for drinks.

Love the exterior look of this hotel. Bright green and in style! Loved the stair case by the reception. Quite nice to just sit there, look at the water and chill.

The bathroom was awesome. You can watch TV while you enjoy the bath (there's glass on the side to look into the room.

Deadly quiet. Great sleep!

The breakfast is pretty standard continential & boulangerie type. Various cold cut and few cheeses was available. Tons of variety on the tea though - anything from fusion, to classic (at least 10 flavours)
Bonus points from me: They serve sparkling wine for breakfast.

**taxi from the airport, it will cost you around 70euro --> watch out which road the taxi will land on. Better to tell the driver to drop you off on the side near the train station, else you'll have to drag your luggage over the bridges by yourself (200m+). If you are dropped off at the right spot, you'll be at the front door of the hotel.

We booked this hotel for a short break, due to it being close to Zaandam railway station. Also from the pictures it seemed to be a very quirky in appearance. It had a very unique design which looks better in real life than in the photos. There was an excellent shopping centre right on the doorstep with some really good cafes.

We arrived early but the very the really helpful receptionist checked and found that as the room was ready, so we were able to go straight to the room. The room was huge (compared with anything of a similar price in the centre of Amsterdam), well equipped and spotless.

We only had breakfast one morning, but the selection was great and the dining room was well set out with plenty of room.

It is worth mentioning to first timers travelling to Amsterdam and using this hotel that the Netherlands Railways ticket machines (although they do translate into English) are possible the most awful we have ever come across. The take only coins (not notes) and only Maestro cards (not Visa, MasterCard or American Express). If you don't have enough coins, you have to buy the tickets at the ticket office where they surcharge you 0.5 Euros per ticket, which adds up over the holiday - especially if you are travelling as a group. They have been like this for years and they do not show any inclination to do anything about it - possibly enjoying the additional income that all these 0.5 Euros contribute.

Room Tip: All the rooms are unique. We had a standard Classic room with a view over the canal and down the sh...

We stayed five nights and did enjoy our stay at the hotel. The rooms were comfortable but somewhat sparsely furnished. The hotel has a very unique architectural design to make it look like a collage of Zaandam houses. The hotel was just across the street from the train station so getting to Amsterdam was quick and inexpensive; 10 minutes and 5 EUR return. The hotel is also at the end of a very large pedestrian shopping mall with a great selection of stores. For those who may want to see something other than the historic section of Amsterdam this hotel is a good choice. Lots to see in Zaandam as well.

Dear lescres,

Thank you every much for posting this positive review. It’s good to read that you had were happy with your choice to stay in our hotel and that you've appreciated the architecture of our building. The architects wanted to give our guests the idea of a temporarely home and so they decided to stack 70 Zaanse huisjes in 4 shades of green and 1 in blue. We’re very proud of this architecture as you can imagine.

We love to give you a warm welcome back if you ever choose to visit us again.

We stayed for a weekend as the hotels in central Amsterdam were heavily booked and very expensive. It's an unsual looking hotel, nice facilities including a small pool, gym and bar. It is also right next to the train station, which is just over 10 mins into Centraal station for €2.40, with a very regular service. Last train back is around 1am, taxis are then quite expensive and take about half an hour to get to the hotel. I would therefore recommend this location for families or people not expecting to be out too late - if you're going to miss the last train you need to factor in €35 cab fare into the price.
