We had a 4 night stay at the Zaan Inn Hotel. It's perfectly situated just a few minutes walk from the ZaanDam train station about 10 minute ride to Amsterdam Centraal, the main train station in Amsterdam. The hotel is also near shopping and several choices for eating just on the other side of the train station.
Even though the hotel is in view from the train station, the hotel is surprisingly quiet. Our room was on the side closest to the station and you can barely hear the trains coming and going. The rooms were spacious, modern and very clean. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating!
The complimentary breakfast is of good size but not much variety. It was the same each morning. But for what you get, it's of very good value. Coffee, orange juice, eggs, fruit, sliced meats and cheeses, breads and croissants, yogurts and grains.
We had a single large bed and it was huge! So big, my wife and I moved to the center so it could feel more like our queen bed. It was very comfortable! Each room has it's own climate control as well and the bathrooms are very spacious!
If I had one criticism (or advice rather), it would be that if you plan on going into Amsterdam eash day, plan wisely. The last train to ZaanDam gets in shy of midnight. If you miss it, you're stuch having to use a cab (which can be costly). Other than that, the public transit system is very efficient!
If you're looking for a greta place to stay outside of Amsterdam, The Zaan Inn Hotel is a great choice!
