“Legoland for grown-ups”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I saw this hotel on an architecture site and was thrilled to see it lived up to expectation. The service and room were excellent, and the location for transport could not be better. Given it was right by the railway station, it was remarkably quiet.

This hotel is an absolute gem of a find. Don't let the look of it out you off. it is about 12-15 minutes by train from Amsterdam main train station. We have stayed in the central area of Amsterdam before. When we arrived in Zaandam, you could see the hotel from the trainand it was about a 3 minute walk to the hotel. Great when you have baggage. We were upgraded to a "Factory Design" room. It was heaven. Quiet, large, great views, comfortable. The only downside was we did not have long enough for some extra nights. The staff are very accommodating which is a change to some of the other big hotels. The food in the restaurant was outstanding. This hotel was one nice surprise all round. If this is the standard if Inntel hotels, well done.

Really loved how close the hotel was to the train station, it was so convenient and easy to access. The exterior of the hotel is so unique and simply incredible! The room itself is quite spacious, beautifully presented, modern comfortable and clean.
I loved the personal touches by the housekeepers such as the signed welcome card with little lollies.
Customer service was lovely to. Nothing to complain about! Would highly recommend. Didn't want to leave!

The hotel tries hard to be Dutch. They managed with the very interesting design. The rooms are comfortable and very modern. Most rooms have good views over the city and surrounding country side. The lobby is efficient and the hotel is well placed next to the railway station. The service is typicall dutch, i.e. friendly but not very professional

I stayed in the Inntel hotel in Zaandam for 3 night in August and this hotel was excellent from start to finish.

This hotel stands out from the other buildings around it due to the strange shape and multi coloured wooden exterior, to the waterfall starting outside the dining room.

with regards to the inside, there was a very airt reception with helpful friendly staff, a bar and dining room
After checking in I was told my room was on floor 10 and shown to the lift. I did not know what to expect regarding the room as this was my first stay there but on opening the Door I was greeted with a room big enough to host a small party, it had the biggest double bed I have ever seen right down to a whirlpool bath and personnel sauna.
I decided to explore and on the second floor (I think) there was a gym, sauna, steam room, and pool which was a god send, nothing beats relaxing in the pool after work

Outside the hotel is right at the end on a new shopping street c/e take aways cinema clothes shops etc which was excellent, the train station was basically on the door step and you were about 5 mins from restaurants, bars, and a fun fair.

All in all I did not want to leave but upon check out the reception staff arranged my taxi and while I was waiting having breakfast ensured my luggage was safe and stored (for free) in their luggage room.

would love to go back and stay a bit longer

Room Tip: try and get room 1012

This hotel is amazing! So unique and modern I would recommend it to everyone.

I upgraded our room to a junior suite which had its own whirlpool bath and sauna and the biggest comfiest bed I've ever seen!! I would definitely recommend upgrading if you can as the suite was massive, modern and lovely decor.

We had dinner in the hotel one evening and it was lovely and the staff were polite and friendly.

We stayed 3 nights and had breakfast 2 of the mornings... Quite expensive at 16 euro per person but such a range of food (and Prosseco!!!) and the restaurant itself is lovely.

So close to the station and Amsterdam central, Zaandam itself is lovely too for when you don't want to go to the hustle and bustle of Dam square.

Would recommend this hotel to everyone and would love to visit again.... The one thing I would say is check your bill when you check out as we were overcharged by 32 euro and were told it would be refunded straight away but it's been 3 days and haven't got it - emailed yesterday so hopefully I'll get a positive response soon!

Dear Amystokes888,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience in our hotel on this website. How nice to read that you’ve appreciated the Founders Junior Suite and that you enjoyed the dishes we served in restaurant Puur Saen. Our kitchen staff are doing their utmost best to serve the best dishes with ingredients from our region. I have checked with our Front Desk and the correction was already processed last week so it should be in your account by now.

We’re looking forward to give you a warm welcome back in our hotel.

Very comfortable room. Excellent breakfast available for 16 Euros. Very modern and new hotel with exquisite exterior design. Shops nearby and a short walk to the village center with several restaurants. A simpler breakfast at a much lower cost is only a few steps along the walkway just outside the hotel. Two things would have helped our visit: an explanation that a room key needs to be inserted into a gismo in the room to activate the interior lights, a necessity for us after driving 10 hours from Copenhagen, arriving at 11 p.m.; and addition of electrical outlets on both sides of the headboard for people like us that require CPAP machines for sleep apnea. I had to make two trips down to the reception desk to address both of these issues. Extension cords were made available, so we stayed in the original room; however, I think that they missed the boat in omitting such a simple thing as sufficient wall outlets by the beds. Would I stay there again? Yes, but it is a bit pricey, and I prefer pensions to hotels.
The train station is a short walk; I presume that there are good connections to Amsterdam Zentrum. We had a car to use, so we didn't make use of the close train station.
