According to website pictures - this hotel should have been in the top line of boutique hotels and its ambiance. This is the hotel and restaurant. Breakfest was very very nice, we didn't have dinner only because we wanted to spend less but judging by breakfest and the dinner menu - dinner would have been awesome.
I think most of their profit comes from the restaurant, and rooms are overlooked by the management. I am guessing when hotel was opened - the rooms were great and up to class. We stayed in Sistserman's suite and Admiral room. 1st impression when you enter hotel is that nobody swipps the floors- the entrance between the entrance doors was filled with leaves and whatnot. In addition, what detracted from the expirience of the rooms are scratches on the walls from suitcases and wierd spots on the walls all over in both rooms. Since there are candles in the rooms - i am assuming it is the spots from the candle wax but when you see it - it looks more than inpleasant. One can say that these are minor details and they would be right. But it detracts from the expirience of the boutique feel and otherwise calling this hotel a little gem and creates a worn out feeling, needing a face lift. Also, it is misleading - there is a very little view of the harbour form admiral suite, but you can see it a little bit. The hotel is not on the harbour. There is a church nearby- bells ring every so often. Monnikendam is pleasant and quite little town.
