“Excellent B&B,only 17 minutes from Amsterdam cs.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

An excellent B&B within 17 minutes by train from the centre of Amsterdam in a village with a beautiful view over a broad canal and active windmills. The house is almost next to the historical Zaanse Schans with old typical dutch houses and several active windmills (sawmill, musterdmill, pigmentmill). Plan to visit this attraction when it is quiet; So, early and before the busses full of tourist arrive. The hosts Margreet and Robert are generous. They know all about Amsterdam and are helpfull in giving you advise. After a busy day of site seeing and wondering through musea you will be happy to return to their lovely home and hospitality.

The rooms are perfect (they really are) and the photos shown here are 100% true - it really is such a beautiful place and the scenery is breathtaking!

The B&B is very close to the attraction Zaanse Schans and is definitely in ~10-15 min walking distance (asian girls speed). The location itself may not be the most convenient if you plan to spend most of your time in the Amsterdam city (to get to the city it's ~ 15 min walking from the Zaandijk station to the B&B but once you get on the train it's quick. oh by the way- Margreet goes to the city quite often and she would offer you a free journey if timings match!. But I'd very much recommend if you go to this area you must meet this beautiful place - i have even thought of buying a house and just staying here after I retire! (haha. despite the language barrier with other people here; n.b. Margreet is a proficient english-speaker!)!

Margreet and Robert are incredibly helpful, nice and generous hosts and the breakfast they made is just great.

The other thing we enjoyed most is that Margreet and Robert are also art-lovers who can really talk with you about van gogh, vermeer and picasso. If going to rijkmuseum and van gogh museum was one of the very reasons that you go to amsterdam - you'll love them.

Overall it was a perfect stay for us - we mean it!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
SPECIAL DEAL: STAY 3 NIGHTS, GET 10% DISCOUNT, STAY 4 NIGHTS, GET 15% DISCOUNT. B&B River Garden with sensational views on 'Zaanse Schans' is very close to Amsterdam Center (17 min. by train), famous 'Keukenhof' and Schiphol Airport. In a beautiful old building from 1896, on the banks of the river 'Zaan', you will find on the topfloor two very comfortable, spacious rooms. All original details are restoured in the house. In both guestrooms a historic atmosphere is matched with modern comfort. Because of its rich history, the 'Zaanstreek' is very interesting. B&B River Garden is situated in the middle of that history, opposite historic 'Zaanse Schans' with views on 7 working windmills. In the close vicinity are several small but interesting musea. There are restaurants and cafe's within walking distance. Further away some gastronomic delights can be found. We will gladly inform you about them. We can also provide you with many inside tips about things to do and places to go in Amsterdam as we used to live there ourselves. The spacious 'Zaan' room (25 square meters) with double bed, has a great view on the Zaanse Schans, the river 'Zaan' and the grasslands. The 'Dijk' room (15 square meters) with two single beds, overlooks the village. Between the two rooms is a spacious landing were you can sit and work. Here you will also find a cupboard, pantry and the bathroom. Both rooms are on the 2nd floor. ... more   less
