“Basic, clean and fulfilled my expectations (3.5 really)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

I'm probably not a typical resident at this hotel. I was sent to Amsterdam for work at short notice. The hotels in Amsterdam seemed to fall into one of three categories: 1 - Ludicrously expensive, 2 - 'dodgy looking hostels, still expensive, 3 - Sold out.
So I decided to stay in Zandvoort and picked the Doppenberg as it was at a reasonable price and topped the list.
Good points: Friendly welcome, clean accommodation, quiet location, BBC1 on the TV (good for the English), refrigerator in the room
Not so good points: my room had a separate entrance on the ground floor at the back, so no charming view, there is free wifi, apparently, but it didn't seem to penetrate into my room.

Within easy walking distance, there are numerous restaurants and the train station. Trains to Amsterdam Centraal run every 30 mins. and are very punctual.
The Dutch are quite idiosyncratic (imho). E.g., the ticket machine at the station doesn't accept non-Dutch debit/credit cards.
I would certainly stay again in similar circumstances. The hotel would make a clean and comfortable "no-frills" base for those taking a break by the sea.

We only stayed one night at this adorable place, but it was totally worth it! We had a 3 bed room, because our daughter joined us. The accommodations were such that she had her own sleeping quarters, away from us. Were were just off the reception area, but it was still quiet. While we weren't there long enough, it was nice to know there was a fridge and kettle in our room.

Amsterdam is only a short train ride away, and the Zandvoort centrum is only a short walk away.
Next time we stay at the sea, we will definitely return!

We stayed here with another couple so they did upgrade us to rooms on the first floor which were very large. The deluxe room was very well appointed....very large room and shower and a large patio overlooking the street. We had a 2nd very large room, a little more spartan but very nice. Unfortunately there is spotty desk service and our friend's request for more than one bath towel was not responded to, and before we went out for dinner, I left a request for an extra pillow, and the note was still on the desk on our return a couple of hours later.
Parking is 3/4 of a block down the street but affordable at €7.50 for 24 hours.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for a week and it was just great. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms were tidy and nicely decorated. The hotel is located just a couple of meters away from the city centre and beaches so everything is within walking distance.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and I will return.

Pros: The hotel is in a good location to reach the town center and the beach, and the girl at the front desk was so nice and helpful, even helping us order our tickets to Keukenhof and figure out train schedules.
Cons: Breakfast is not included, and is offered at a different location in the town center. The room needed some renovations (although based on other reviews, I think maybe other rooms are better than ours was. There was mold in the shower and on the ceiling, the window didn't shut right, there was a broken pipe coming out of the bathroom floor with a towel stuffed in it, and it made the room smell really bad, and worst of all was the toilet! Google GPST toilet to see what I mean. The internet was terrible too, although it was free.
Overall, I hate not giving them a good rating, because the service was so friendly, but they need to do some basic renovations before renting it out to more people. We had the room on the back side of the top floor.
