“If Old Dutch Authenticity is What You're Looking for...This is the Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Heerlijck Slaapen is NOT your ordinary B&B. It is a preserved structure in a historically preserved area, consequently the owners are only permitted to do so much with renovation...electricity, working bathroom, heat, etc. We stayed in room "Koopmanshuis d'Mol - De Walvis" and, by modern standards is "stark" but we loved it...though it is a little tricky to negotiate the stairs at night. The view of the Zaan from the bed chamber is unparalleled at night and during the day. Breakfasts are typical...meat, cheese, breads, croissants, granola, yoghurt, fruits, juices, coffee and tea. All very plentiful and good quality. Bakery items are fresh from the baker which Sharon picks up on her way to work in the morning. Sharon is a very happy, positive person and helps anyway she can to make your stay pleasant. Zaanse Schans can have a lot of tourists...bus loads...daily but once you enter your room you are sheltered from all of that. We enjoyed our stay very much

Room Tip: WE stayed in"Koopmanshuis d'Mol - De Walvis". It's a little pricey but remember wh...

You need to be flexible but then you have a great experience. This B&B has three different accomodations. We stayed in "Het Glop"which is an authentic - refurbished - old Zaans family house. With a downstairs lounge - where we enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast - and upstairs sitting room, bathroom and bedroom. About flexibility: as the average 17th century Dutch were about a foot (30 cm ) shorter than we, you need to stoop all the time or bump your head... But after getting used to that it is a great experience to have a 270 degrees view of all the traffic on the Zaan river from your bedroom.
Our host was very friendly and helpful, check in was a breeze, parking is available close by in a reserved space. And you are staying within the "Zaanse Schans" - open air museum of the historic Zaan area.
Next door is a very good restaurant: "De Hoop op de Zwarte Walvis" (One time Michelin star but still very good).

Room Tip: ""t Glop" is the most authentic but needs some stooping (or bump your head). Other ro...

The Heerlijck Slaapen is a bit expensive but well worth the price for comfort and a beautiful setting. The two bedrooms we had both had a view of the water and of the authentic Dutch houses across the river. In addition to the rooms we had a private kitchen and bath which was perfect for feeding a three and one-half year old after a long day in Amsterdam. The little village is has partially been created so is full of windmills, small shops and places to eat. A fun place to spend a weekend! The breakfast was good, not exceptional but satisfying. The location is very claose to the train station to Amsterdam.
