Good hotel. We booked this hotel because it offers free parking. Indeed, we were pleased that there were plenty of parking at the hotel. We booked a room and a kitchenette suite, but was disappointed that the kitchenette has a sink but no cooking facilities, apart than a kettle. We asked for some big bowls but was supplied with only small ones. The hotel is very close to the local Supermarket (I was surprised that their prices of many things here are lower than the prices of the same things in Australia) and the train station. It only costs 6.4 Euro for a return by train day trip to Amsterdam. We stayed here for 4 nights in January 2017. Spent one day in Zaanse Schans (very close to the hotel) and 2 days wandering around Amsterdam. We took the Watercolor Cruise (25 Euro each person) to see the Light Festival, but had to say it was so disappointing, compared with Sydney Vivid Color.

Nice Hotel, Potential to be Even Better

Very nice hotel, new and modern feel with great décor. Restaurant staff were very helpful. Room was very nice but could have been a little cleaner, and three light bulbs were out in the room. If the room was cleaned better with attention to things like light bulbs that are out, I would have rated it a 4.0 or 4.5. Convenient and free parking, with a large grocery store walking distance away. No gym or fitness center.

Pros: King sized bed is always a plus
Cons: Guests are not allowed to use the hotel's microwave
Location: location is good for travelling around...zaandam has a few places nearby to eat n drink, a few shops as well ie h&m, primark etc...grocery nearby also
Decent location...5 mins walk from the station tops...right around the corner from the station...was given wrong info about use of the microwave...ended up wasting money at the nearby grocery...the front desk manager Luigi made a feeble attempt to cater to us in this regard...his suggestion was simply to 'write to the General Manager'...breakfast wasnt bad otherwise

Pros: The friendly and helpful staff.
The hotel was very nice and clean. It is not located right in Amsterdam but the train station is about 10 mins. away and then the train ride is about a 12 min ride to Amsterdam. There are several nice eating places with about a 15 min walk as well great shopping places. All hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to help with answering any questions I had. Also the bar staff were great especially the night supervisor . It was a great place to stay and would go back again.
