I recently stayed over night at this very funky hotel whilst working on my friends boat which is moored at Zaandam marina. It was too cold to sleep on the boat so we decided to book a nights stay at this modern but slightly quirky hotel. The architecture is very "lego" based but looks fantastic, situated at the top end of the very modern shopping high-street. The staff were very helpful and once again, like most Dutch folk, their English was excellent. The room was on the 9th floor overlooking the canal and high street and had all the facilities that you would expect from a new modern hotel. We didn't eat in the hotel but the restaurant area in the evening and at breakfast was nearly full, which is a good pointer to the standard and choice of food. I have to return to Zaadam later this year and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for either one night or longer if you wish to explore Zaandam or near by Amsterdam which is reached via the near-by local railway station.
A very good modern, clean hotel: Good choice.
