“Good option near Amsterdam but cheaper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

The staff was very friendly, the bed was very comfortable and the heater worked great. The neighborhood was very quiet as it is in a small town. The design is a little bit old but matches with the town. It was also very clean and tidy.

The only bad thing I could say about it is that the breakfast was too expensive for what they offered.

We stayed here for one night as we were attending a concert at P3 which is about a 15 minute walk away. I made the reservation for this hotel as I had stayed here before, but I felt that the room we had was a bit on the shabby side, with paintwork needing attention and the bathroom was a little outdated.

However, we had a comfortable stay, the room was clean and bright, but the sun does shine directly into the room, so when we arrived, it was like a sauna.

We didn't have breakfast here, so can't comment on that.

A good nights stay for a very good price.

Nine of us stayed at this Hotel as we had a party in Purmerend. A delightful hotel; nice and clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful indeed. We didn't eat in the hotel at all, merely having drinks, but the Restaurant looked lovely. A short walk into Purmerend so very well positioned. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: None of us had a problem with any of the rooms that we had - no problem with noise element at all.

Excellent breakfast, comfy and clean rooms, helpful staff and excellent value for money. An easy walk into town and very pleasant spot. Didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening, but it seemed popular.

The hotel was old and not idyllic... some places in the world are charming because of their age... NOT this hotel. The rooms were too small ( I stayed in at least 5 different Vander Valks and this was the absolute worst. The staff was uninterested, not capable, not to be found when needed and actually rude.
The breakfast was ok, the scrambled eggs though absolute uneatable. Hard, burned and the staff didnt want to change it either, because "its still enough present".
The surroundings were ok, although you had to walk a while to find it...
Actually NOT to recommend ever...

Our very drab room was right off the dining room with windows towards the main entrance - for privacy, the brown curtains had to be closed. Lighting was poor and the decor (carpet, bedspread, etc appeared very worn and ugly. The bathroom needed a complete overhaul. The plastic towel rack was loose and came off repeatedly, so that the towels were in constant danger of falling into the toilet bowl underneath. One had to be careful washing one's face in the tiny sink as to not bump into the mirror board right above. Maintenance seemed to be missing.
On the positive side, the restaurant was comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: May be we got the worst room in the hotel since there were just a couple off the dining room and we...

We are a Australian couple travelling Europe for 6 months, this hotel appears very nice but the staff are not happy or welcoming...we arrived 9.30am for breakfast one morning and it was very basic, I requested cold meat and was told abruptly breakfast is nearly finished?? Not good morning or hello etc, the room was very basic with the most awful bed spread on the bed, if they just took the bed spread off it would be a better appearance...the bathroom was tiny and water would not regulate was either cold or hot (room 28)...We do not recommend this hotel for tourists. Purmarent locals support this hotel and are made welcome.
