“A great stay...”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

You need to be flexible but then you have a great experience. This B&B has three different accomodations. We stayed in "Het Glop"which is an authentic - refurbished - old Zaans family house. With a downstairs lounge - where we enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast - and upstairs sitting room, bathroom and bedroom. About flexibility: as the average 17th century Dutch were about a foot (30 cm ) shorter than we, you need to stoop all the time or bump your head... But after getting used to that it is a great experience to have a 270 degrees view of all the traffic on the Zaan river from your bedroom.
Our host was very friendly and helpful, check in was a breeze, parking is available close by in a reserved space. And you are staying within the "Zaanse Schans" - open air museum of the historic Zaan area.
Next door is a very good restaurant: "De Hoop op de Zwarte Walvis" (One time Michelin star but still very good).

Room Tip: ""t Glop" is the most authentic but needs some stooping (or bump your head). Other ro...

The Heerlijck Slaapen is a bit expensive but well worth the price for comfort and a beautiful setting. The two bedrooms we had both had a view of the water and of the authentic Dutch houses across the river. In addition to the rooms we had a private kitchen and bath which was perfect for feeding a three and one-half year old after a long day in Amsterdam. The little village is has partially been created so is full of windmills, small shops and places to eat. A fun place to spend a weekend! The breakfast was good, not exceptional but satisfying. The location is very claose to the train station to Amsterdam.
