Only 10 minutes by train from Amsterdam, located at the famous Zaanse Schans you will find our bed and breakfast Heerlijck Slaapen. Divided over three buildings (orginally from the 17th century) we offer several room for your stay. The "Noorderhuis" has two rooms called "Boven Zaan" and "Noorderhuis" with view over the river Zaan. In addition "het Noorderhuis" is suitable for 4 persons. Next door we have "koopmanshuis de Mol", which has two rooms. One room has a great view at the Zaan. Our suite is located in the last building "het Glop", which has a majestic view at the zaan and the windmills of the Zaanse Schans. All our rooms have their own bathroom, coffee/tea facility, minibar and free Wifi. In the morning, we serve the breakfast at "Noorderhuis". The Zaanse Schans itself is ofcourse a beautiful place for a pleasant day out. Furthermore, Amsterdam and Alkmaar are also nearby. Combine your stay with a wonderful diner at "de Hoop op de Swarte Walvis", which is located next to our bed and breakfast.

We were on a cycling holiday and stayed for a night. Had lovely ambiance and excellent location. The view over the Zaan in the garden is perfect for an afternoon cocktail before heading out for dinner.

Personally i would recommend a day trip rather than staying the night at this place. Its a bit of a task getting there. We took a train and then had to take an Uber to reach the hotel. It took more than 45 minutes to get an Uber cause they kept cancelling. When we got one finally he went to the wrong side of the station across the highway and it took a lot of convincing for him to come this side. The hotel itself is a bit underwhelming. The spectacular view outside is better than the inside. Its quite a task getting to the bedroom on the first floor. You need to climb a narrow staircase and with a biggish suitcase its rather difficult. Also, you need to be careful of not bumping your head . I stubbed my toe and hurt it very badly on the mini staircase, going to the bathroom at night. The breakfast is basic but tasty. However, i personally felt that the price isn't proportionate to the accommodation .

Ambiance and authenticity second to none. Step back in time for a while with perfect and "all you need" adjusted facilities.If you want luxury, spa, pool than check in to a 5 star hotel but a 5 star hotel will be jealous of what this B&B has : Atmosphere,location, history,heartwarming hospitality,top quality beds and tranquility just to name few.10 minutes walk to train station and perfect fast access to Amsterdam (12 min.by train). Greetings from Denmark.

We last stayed here in Dec '16 and decided to have another visit, as although the area of Zaanse Schans is quite touristic, it is beautiful and the houses that make up the B & B of Heerlijck Slappen are stunning. On arrival Sharon greeted us like welcoming a family member home and showed us to our rooms - this time we stayed in the ground floor apartment of Noordhaus. This apartment is stunning - although I couldnt imagine it would be possible to have a room here that is anything but stunning. I could never tire of the view over the zaan, nor of the windmills. The apartment consists of: on entry, a room with bunk beds and off this room is also the toilet and shower rooms - both separate, which is useful - toilet has a sink basin in too. Lovely amenities are left in the bedroom. The next room is the kitchen, with all you would expect, plus dining table; then the final room, overlooking the river is the main bedroom with another table and chairs at the window, and a huge double bed with such pretty linens - very good quality that made getting into bed when cold a pleasure. The tv is ultra modern, and the room is also served with wifi. BBC world news and euro news are in English. In the room(s) everything is there that should be and the attention to detail cannot be faulted. Breakfast is served in the front of the Noordhaus, and consists of an afternoon tea stand full of various breads, a buffet area consisting of various cold meats, cheeses, jams, cereals, biscuits and fruit plus freshly cooked eggs are also available. This is serve with a variety of teas or coffee. Nothing is too much trouble for Sharon or her assistant, and they are genuinely happy to help with anything. We were chatting about our plans one morning and mentioned that we were going to go for a trip on the zaan boat - so they gave us a leaflet for a few euros off the price, and on another occasion Sharon made a restaurant reservation for us. Getting to and from Amsterdam Centre is easy either on bus 391 from the stop at the front of the museum on site, or from the train station (10 mins walk over the river). The bus takes longer, but when you factor in the additional time walking to the station, there isnt much in it. The bus and train do not take cash any longer, so payment by chip and pin is needed - to the driver for a paper ticket that lasts 1.5 hours and can be transfered for journeying on by metro, or other buses (cost 6.50e) or at the machine at the station . We also took the train direct to/from the Arena stop to go and watch an Ajax game, although next time we may need to watch Alkmaar after finding out they train near ZS. Another lovely stay, despite the rainy weather, and we will definitely return in another couple of years; Cant recommend this place highly enough!
