Very friendly staff, they offer a solution before you can even ask the question. If you're not looking for the stanard 'posh' hotel approach, bt for a genuine customer oriented approach - this is the place to be!

We had a great experience. Our room was very clean. Beds were comfortable. I was very pleased with the location for our 12-day stay. It was a short walk to the train station and conveniently located near a grocery, shops, and restaurants. So glad we stayed a bit out from Amsterdam...so peaceful.

We recently stayed here for two weekend during a biking trip. We found the hotel tidy and clean with great service. The patio was handy for a couple of afternoon drinks. Great location next to a grocery store and about 1km from a nice dam with lots of cool places for dinner and drinks.

The Zaan Inn is ideally located within easy reach of Amsterdam (20 minutes by train), but out of the noise of the city centre. Zaandam itself is an attractive place with a good mix of modern and historical areas. Plenty of good places to eat and drink in town or in the hotel itself. The hotel staff were all friendly...

Nice Best Western with all the usual mod cons. We had the suite with a kitchen and it was a comfortable and spacious place. One concern was the bathroom. It had a glass door which didn't leave much to the imagination of someone was on the loo or in the shower. Not all people sharing want to be so familiar!... More
