Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We made the reservation on the saturday morning, well I thought that I had made the reservation for that same night but for some reason it was for 2 weeks away.
We travelled to the unique Dutch authentic island of Marken.
We were very well received by the owners despite that we didn't had any reservation for that day, upsy :)

The hotel is very cosy and clean.
Breakfast was high quality food and service.

A place to return that's for sure.

The Hof van Marken is a charming little inn in the picturesque town of Marken, a short drive outside Amsterdam. The young proprietiers of the inn and restaurant, Taco and Lonneke, were splendid hosts and served us delicious meals.
The rates are very reasonable and an afternoon stroll through this quiet fishing village last September - followed by a glass of wine in the pub - was a perfect antidote to the bustle of Amsterdam. This inn is definately worth a visit!

Be warned though, the staircase leading to the bedrooms is quite steep...

Yes we did enjoy our stay here at the Hof van Marken as the only hotel (and accomodation) I believe in Marken. If you are a tourist then you expect the place to be touristy and it is (blatantly). Overall we would have to give this hotel positive ratings but also share our experience. OK I come here because I work in the area but bring my wife along for company but still expect to be treated like real guests at a hotel. There are MANY bad hotels in the Amsterdam area (I've been to a few) and this is a GOOD hotel.
Quite charming and unique, we had the Suite which I believe is the best room in the hotel as it is the most expensive (no hotels are cheap in this area) - wonderful views in two directions as the room spreads around a corner. Also the bathroom is a good size with bath and shower combined. Very clean room. Described as a suite but really a reasonably sizeed double room with a two seater sofa. No additional facilities. Only on the second day where we offered a kettle for tea by the very lovely lady staff member. Not all staff (including owners) SEEMED too friendly or helpful, I emphasise SEEMED as this is the way they came across, if they meant to be friendly and helpful then that did not come across. (No offer of refreshment on arrival late evening when the bar and restaurant was closed (this is a hotel) or for an early breakfast before 8am).Actually this is also true for the whole resort, we met as many who were unfriendly as friendly - perhaps they are only human and get sick of English speaking tourists! Beware of the stairs - they are steep and narrow and if you have any form of disability then this is not the place for you.
The breakfast was OK, no choice offered and expensive at 15EUR compared to other hotels.
There are claims that this is the best place to eat in town, probably true but nothing special. We found our one evening meal nice but bland and again not cheap.
Overall a nice experience.

1. Not good food, when I did order schrimps I have got cooked in oil in microwave, no choice in the menu.
2. My boyfriend wanted to eat on silvester night a dinner, he did order this and it was no food for him.
3. When I went with my own glas of wine the owner lady was rude, when I said OK I am going out, I am leaving the room, she shaked my hand and and did spill wine over me, I had to change my clothes - no one said I am sorry.
4. Very steep stairs, no facilities for disabled people at all.
5. Very crocked floor in rooms.
6. Water flush in toilets not working properly.

We stayed at Hof Van Marken for a quiet three day break and were pleased with our choice. It's the only B&B in Marken, just up a side street from the harbour, about 35 minutes by the efficient half hourly 315 bus from Amsterdam Centraal. The hamlet is very pretty and peaceful, surrounded by farmland, and it takes just over 2 hours to walk the whole island by well-kept pathway. Our room (6) was small but adequate, with a window view over the roofs and lagoon; and the stairs to the rooms are steepish and not suitable for anyone with mobility problems although we managed OK (These factors were probably the same for most houses in Marken). The breakfasts at 10e were excellent value, although the hotel no longer offers evening meals presumably as most guests would want to eat on the harbourside (see my review of the excellent De Taanketel). The ferries to Volendam on the mainland are efficient, but Volendam itself couldn't be more of a contrast as it's tacky and unpleasantly touristy (avoid). Instead we passed through quickly, taking a bus to the lovely town of Edam which is worth a visit. Overall we had a very happy stay, and would thoroughly recommend this hotel and village for a short get away break that can easily be combined with daily trips to Amsterdam if need be. The hotel also has bikes for guests although we chose more leisurely walking.

The hotel is a bit of a walk (well sign posted) from the out of village parking area but once you step in - warmth and a super welcome from the owners. It is a pity we could only stay one night! Do check out the walks on the dikes: birds, water and views. A great alternative to an impersonal big city hotel.

We were made very welcome on our arrival by the owner Sarah, Although the room we had was a little tired around the edges it was all very clean .Downstairs there was a nice lounge / bar area where a lovely breakfast was served too you in the morning and by night it became a nice place to relax in and enjoy a few drinks .It was very clear to us that sarah takes pride in all that she does, She couldn’t do enough for us making it a pleasant stay .

Spent time in numerous spots in the Netherlands and then made our way to Marken. We only had the opportunity to book a single night at Hof van Marken and that's the only regret we have. The room was nice, the hosts were great, and the town is a nice quite place to visit. (Note that we went off-season in October.) We are planning to go back, this time for a longer stay. You won't be disappointed. Go for the breakfast served at the hotel. Very nice indeed and a great start to the day.

Hof van Marken is a true haven away from the busyness of Amsterdam. It has old world charm combined with modern amenities and is only a very short walk to the picturesque harbour and four restaurants.
Our wonderful host Sarah made our three day stay extra special by organising amazing
outings and transportation to nearby attractions where we got to enjoy the natural beauty of the Netherlands. She created a worry-free experience so that our days in Marken became a highlight of our European vacation and we enjoyed the delicious breakfasts too.

Marken island was the half-way point of a 2 week cycle around The Netherlands. It was also a high-point: a fascinating place. The Hof van Marken turned out to be a splendid choice to spend the night. Friendly: an intriguing blend of timber and brick. We were comfortable, right in the roof-room. We needed the patron to move our gear up there. The staircase was steep even by dutch standards.
He gave us good advice later: what to see; where to eat (my review of the De Taanketel).
But most memorable was the breakfast. Fresh squeezed orange juice, just picked fruit (raspberries, strawberries, blue-berries, melon and so on); freshly made bread and croissants, strong ducth coffee - all delivered with enthusiasm. Certainly the best breakfast we ate on the holiday.
The bikes sped down the island causeway that morning, and on to the Waterlands and Amsterdam. We only needed a shared piece of apple-cake all day until dinner at 8 p.m. many kilometres south.

"Americans you are compelled to travel with tons of luggage be sure to drive up and drop off, as parking is several beautiful scenic blocks away. Like in most boutique hotels you also have to carry your own bags to your room, up the stairs. I teach my nieces and nephews to travel with a carry on. They complain until the trip is over and from then on only travel with a single carry on. We usually are gone 2 - 3 weeks."
