Reading the reviews here on Tripadvisor and needing a nice place to stay for a 2 day visit to Amsterdam and surroundings, we decided to make inquiries about prices and room availability.
My email was answered by the owner who just referred me to his website. Not very helpful!........
We drove to the place to have a look for ourselves and we were welcomed by a very friendly and helpful manager who showed us all the available rooms and so we were satisfied and booked room 104 (called captain A. Haddock) at the front on the first floor for two days the next week on our return trip. A nice, spacious and cosy room. Old, wooden furniture, totally in style of an 19 century sea master. The mattresses could have been a touch more firmer, but that's also a matter of personal taste.
We had a lovely dinner, a giant sea sole poached in butter. Delicious, expensive but worth it!
Breakfast was simple. Very tasty Dutch coffee, white and whole grain slices of bread, cold cuts, old and young Dutch cheese, some marmalade and Dutch chocolate chips (hagelslag). They don't have a breakfast cook, so no eggs.
Internet WiFi is free.
Although an old place, they use modern technology such as RFID room cards and light switches reacting on movement.
All in all, Holland as it should be and a place we can wholeheartedly recommend.
Possibilities: The tourist office of Durgerdam has a nice parkour prepared that you can walk or bike.
