HEM Hotel 't Tolhuus
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Warder
Reviewed September 16, 2013

The hotel is no doubt budget friendly. But it is very far from the main city of Amsterdam. If you are not taking your car, please avoid. I booked this hotel, considering that it is near to beach. I was not aware of the fact that you have to change buses and to walk a lot. Actually, it was my mistake. Actually, the hotel itself has stated on its site that it is far from Amsterdam. It was my fault that I couldn't read in between the lines. Every morning and night we had to take a bus and walk a lot to/from the hotel. (During those months, there is no bus to the hotel. The walk can be horrifying too during the night.

The rooms were average and bathrooms were also the same. Food at the hotel was good indeed. The hotel is strictly "NO SMOKING". The hotel has ample parking space and a good view of sea from your room.

I would recommend the hotel, if you have the car.

Stayed here for the winter of November 2010 and the price was affordable. The food was simply amazing. The surrounding views are the best. First, the lowest point of Holland with sea water waves roaring nearby and the night moonlight and stars was the best. The local people were fabulous.
The hotel is located in a small village called Warder and the nearest bus stop is 45 minutes walk to the hotel. We were lucky on our first night because we met a friendly farmer at the bus stop who gave us a lift with his car to the hotel. The following day as we walked to the bus stop, a woman gave us a lift in her car. Well, you need Taxi contacts to get to this hotel, apart from transport issue, the rest was perfect.

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!!!

Room Tip: Smoking ground floor only

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!
