This great hotel from the Inntel group is well positioned adjacent to the Zaandam Railway Station, easy access by train to Amsterdam Central ( just 12 minutes!). There is also a shopping centre at the rear of the hotel and great secure parking next door.
The hotel is themed around the old biscuit factory, the ceiling of the bar is a giant Marie biscuit. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Free, rapid wifi is a bonus. The extra large, luxurious bathrooms are great for washing away fatigue. Very pleasant, hotel-supplied toiletries were a welcome touch.
Breakfast is extensive and offers options to tempt even the most fussy, with champagne offered along with fresh juices as a great start to a day's touring. Other meals on the restaurant menu were interesting and well prepared.
The multilingual staff are very helpful and are able to offer great advice on transport to tourist activities. The waiter suggested that we pre- book for the Van Gogh Museum which proved to be wise advice. It is these touches which make for great customer satisfaction.
We would definitely recommend this venue to other travellers.
