As a couple who spent several sunny springs staying at the Neighbor's Magnolia when it was then called the Hotel Zandbergen, we are greatly pleased that the new owners have honored the tradition of hospitality, and expanded the comfort of the hotel at the same time. The recent remodel has brightened its character without removing the essence of the hotel. The inviting lobby design makes for gentle laughter and enjoyment whether lingering over the delicious breakfast with yet one more cup of coffee, or sharing a glass of wine and snacks after a glorious day in the city or nearby environs. If you knew Henk, you will appreciate the small framed photo unobtrusively resting on a side table, his smile surely showing contentment that his future vision of the hotel has come to fruition. Members of the previous staff continue at the Neighbor's Magnolia, their knowledge to include the ins and outs of Amsterdam, good places to eat, and the willingness to do an Internet search to answer any questions you might have. I think the hotel could have easily been named "The Friendly Magnolia," for its charming staff. Of course, for one who wondered to what I would to return to given the passing of Henk, previous owner, I have elaborated my delight upon finding my old standby to be as dependable as ever for an excellent stay in Amsterdam. As well, it is in a fantastic location to reach my favorite art museums, and any other Amsterdam sights that tickle your fancy. Of course, we will return to The Neighbor's Magnolia whenever we can. It is our go-to place in Amsterdam.
