“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

This budget hotel is very good value for money. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms modern, clean and comfortable. There is no restaurant or bar but a buffet breakfast is available along with snacks from a vending machine. The bus to the city is just two minutes away and takes about 25 minutes. Zandam has a good bar/restaurant area and is reachable in 10 minutes by bus. The Connexxion bus company serves this area (GVB tickets not valid). It costs €5 one way but a 'Buzzer' day ticket costs €14 and gives unlimited travel on Connexxion for 2 adults and children.

The hotel is relatively new, clean and with a modern but cheap look to it. It could very well be compared to some new hostels, where function preceeds looks. Basic and small rooms with good beds to secure you a good nights sleep. At around €55 per night in weekdays and at €70 in weekends, the rate is probably as low as it gets with it's proximity to Amsterdam. There are good bus connections to Amsterdam Central Station with lines 391 and 392. The bus ride will take 30 minutes and costs €5 for a single ride ticket.

The place is good and cost effective option if you are travelling by car. Basic but comfortable room...the nearest bus stop is ~ 100 mts away .there is regular bus connections into the city..the tv has english..french and dutch channels...the staff is pleasant and speaks english..they have a breakfast buffet (fairly good ..however reach early by 8 am for the breakfast since they don't always replenish all stuff once its over..missed out on eggs on two days..bit of a damper for folks like me who don't eat meat)..the place has no restaurant (has a vending machine with snacks) hence if you are coming back at night please have your dinner at Amsterdam city.However noticed the hotel staff help some guest who checked in late to order some pizza.
Parking is free.

Hotel 3 min walk to the bus which takes you to Amsterdam central in 25mins or Zaandam centre in 10mins €14 for 2 adults for a 24 hour pass to use 392/391 bus as much as you like. Staff very helpful and friendly. Basic but done the job for us, couldn't provide a cot for our baby but gave is a disabled room so we could put up our travel cot. Hotel does not have a bar but plenty of nearby shops to buy your own.

This hotel is indeed a fair bit away from Amsterdam City Centre, but if you are driving, they have a deal with a car park in Amsterdam which makes it cheaper and more convenient than taking the bus into town. Rooms are like any other ibis budget: plain and simple and if you are travelling with friends, please be aware that one might struggle to take a shower without showing your attributes to your room mates. The highlight of the visit was the staff service which was beyond expectation. Sjaak, one of the staff even helped us order pizza to be delivered to the hotel and chilled our drinks. If you are into fancy hotels on the canals, this is not for you. If you don't mind staying a bit further away or if the period you are booking is too busy and the other hotels are charging an arm and a leg, this hotel should definitely do the trick.
