“Nice spot to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

We came over for business in this area and there are not too many hotels near by. It took a train connection from the airport to the Amsterdam Centraal and then by bus to Purmerend. The hotel staff is friendly and the breakfast tasty, thou not included in the room price. Wi-fi is free, unlike their web site is informing. We had our room in the 2nd floor and the stairs were very steep. So, be careful, if you have problems with mobility. The room itself was nice and cosy. There is also a good parking lot, so the hotel is very handy in all respects.

Room Tip: The same floor as the reception

Stayed here for one night. Hotel is easily acessible from the main Purmerend Station, the taxi costs just 7 euros.

Room is very spacious, the bed is two single beds pushed together. Bathroom is very nice as well.

There is a flat screen TV with plenty of channels, thing about Dutch TV is that a lot of their programmes are English/American with Dutch subtitles, so there is plenty to watch.

I didn't have breakfast here, so can't comment, but the check out time is 12pm, so its good to know you don't have to rush around to check out early in the morning.

Brilliant hotel, would recommend to anyone.

Van der Valk is not widely known for their indulging resorts, neither do they have a bad reputation, it is mostly plain average. Van der Valk Purmerend is just the same like the others, an average hotel. The rooms are good, the beds are okay, there is tv and a bath and this hotel is situated near to Purmerend centre and a canal, so these are all good things. Besides I ate the best salmon in the restaurant that I ate in a long time so I can highly recommend eating in the restaurant. The breakfast is okay. So why is it average? You can't help but thinking that you are just one of the many visitors, the staff is not very personally involved with you, and from the 2 times I stayed there they forgot my wake-up call at least once and did not even want to admit it when I said something about it. You just can not escape the feeling that you would rather be at home then staying in this hotel, and that is not a positive point. Still compared to my other hotel in Purmerend, the Burggolf Hampshire Hotel, this one is definitally the better one, if you are not into playing golf. Since there are not a lot hotels in the Purmerend area, and if you can stand the staff neglecting you, then you can try this, but don't expect a romantic, warm and cosy hotel.

I have stayed in this hotel twice. It's part of the van der valk chain which usually has good value and good rooms. This is one of their smallest hotels. Staff is nice and helpfull, restaurant is good, but small. There is plenty of free parking. The rooms are comfortable. The first time I stayed there in 2005 I found the room somewhat small, but still ok. The second time I ordered a room with jaccuzi but
the reception gave me a room with a bubble bath which is ofcourse something very different. However they did take my complaint serious and gave me a small discount. All in all I prefer the larger van der valk hotels. The price is about 80 euro a night. Breakfast buffet is good with freshly squeezed orange juice. This hotel is about 25 kilometers from the center of Amsterdam.

  • Liked — fair prices, room is comfortable
  • Disliked — small place, no much to do

We stayed here for 2 nights for a friends wedding in April.
The hotel is actually really nice - the grounds are lovely as are the rooms.
For the €90 a night that we paid it was well worth the money.
Breakfast was good with lots of continental stuff to choose from.
The only down side was when we came back from the wedding at about 12.15am one of our parites room key wouldn't work.
We went down to reception to get them to re-code the key but there was no staff in the hotel.
We phoned the reception from our room (our key worked) a number of times in case someone was sleeping behind the desk but we got no response.
Eventually we were forced to call the police who had a number for the manager. When he arrived he said he only lived 1 minute away and that if we'd dialled reception from our room it would have diverted to his mobile. This didn't happen and the manager refused to apologise saying that Dutch law meant no staff had to be in the hotel at night. I find this very hard to believe.
We managed to get into the locked hotel room more than 2 hours after we arrived back at the hotel.
All in all, this hotel is very nice but don't rely on the staff to do anything for you or even be in the hotel at night to tend to an emergency!

  • Liked — The location
  • Disliked — The staff - particulary the management
