“OK for an overnight stay - as it's cheap”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

OK for an overnight stay as the main thing going for this hotel is that it is cheap without being too seedy and it is reasonably close to Amsterdam though probably not close enough to be a base for a trip there. The family room we had was passable the breakfast was woeful - nothing replenished so if you want to eat get up early! The location was remote and prettty standing right next to the polder. Staff were a bit surly. and unhelpful. But I didn't expect much.

It is just enough out of Amsterdam that it is quiet and located in beautiful surroundings. Also very priceworthy. Recommended.

Well to start off with this hotel is nowhere near amsterdam, (40 minutes to edam by bus, then a 10 minute drive to hotel all of which cost extra). It is located in a very beautiful area but it is in a very isolated part of the countryside with no direct bus routes. Because of this a car is essential!
While at our stay in the Hotel Tolhuus we found some of the reception staff to be quite unfriendly in nature and unhelpfull to answer any queeries.
The rooms were clean but very basic, with no tea making facilities or even glasses to drink from. There was a vending machine located at the entrance to the hotel. However, this was empty for the duration of our 4 day stay. This led us to buy soft drinks from the hotel bar; which were ridiculously overpriced, as was the food in the restaurant.
Finally, 100 euro's was taken from our room. The rooms were not equiped with any safe facilities for valuables. We were only told about the extra costs of the hotel shuttle bus (which we had been frequently using) on the night prior to our departure. We also booked this bus for 7am the next morning to drive us directly from our hotel to Schiphol airport. This cost us 30euro-even though the bus was an hour and 15 minutes late, with no offer of refund or apology! As a result of this (and reception being closed until 7.45am the morning we were leaving)we missed our flights and had to pay an extra 120euro to get the next available flights home. We emailed the hotel on return to discuss these matters, and our disapointment at the service we recieved, and as of yet have still had no correspondance.
We were very dissapointed with our stay in this hotel, on what would have been an otherwise lovely holiday.

Bus Travellers get the 114 from the back of centraal station ( up the stairs outside the back entrance) to edam the bus runs every hour and is 6 euro for a single 9 for a return you can avail of a shuttle bus from the hotel to and from edam which cost 5 euro per person per trip but is very unreliable especially if you have a flight the next morning!!!

Cosy and nice place, but I must to warn about the road which takes you to the hotel.. can be hard to find. Housing conditions are worth their price. Don't book that if you're travelling without a car!

We stayed in this hotel for 10 days and have no real negative things to say about the stay. we knew beforehand that it was and is in the middle of nowhere (literally)....and being without a car we were aware of the limitations of transport through previous reviews in tripadvisor. For us it did not matter as we were out after a place where we could stay in quiet surroundings.
The room was average standard, the staff friendly and rooms were kept clean. The closest shop/supermarket is 3 km with bike from hotel 10 - 15 minutes (they rent bikes in the hotel).
Getting to anywhere with bus is difficult...even taxi is difficult to arrange even from close towns like edam, volendam or purmerend. If you need a taxi arrange this one day before you need it. (the ride cost about 25 Euros to Edam)
If traveling by car this is a super deal though, the price friendliest :-) Not too far from Edam, Volendam and Amsterdam and a beautiful countryside!

Two important points......1) DO NOT GO TO THIS HOTEL IF YOU ARE WANTING A WEEKEND IN AMSTERDAM!! 2) YOU NEED A CAR.

If you want a hotel in the countryside, but would like to go to Amsterdam for the day then it is perfect. We had no trouble locating the hotel, it is clearly marked on Google Maps. The location of the hotel is idyllic, just outside the tiny village of Warder. There is one pub in Warder and no shops but Edam is only a few miles away.

The room itself looked like it hadn't been decorated for 25 years. It was fairly spacious though, as was the bathroom. Our room had a jacuzzi bath which was amazing, 2nd best bath I've ever had after Caesar's Palace in Vegas so that was a big plus point! The sheets were quite itchy and I did worry there were bed bugs but on the second night they had softened and were fine. No bed bug bites to report!!

The restaurant looked a bit rubbish so we didn't bother eating there. There was a 3 course set menu for 25 euro but didn't look so great. Breakfast was 10 euro but seemed to be just croissants/bread/cheese etc so we just took our own breakfast supplies.

If you want to go to Amsterdam for the day, I would recommend driving to a Park and Ride. We went to one called Wormerland Park and Ride. It is located on the N515 just off the A7. It is signposted: Zaandijk, Zaanse Schans, Wormerland P&R . You park next to a Burger King, and then the bus stop is on the main road. The 91 bus takes you to Amsterdam Central Station for €2.50. The car park is free.
