Highly recommended to all kind of travellers especially if you on a tight ship. Everything you might need is near by supermarket and train. Also one station away to Zaanse Schans and also less than 10 mins to Amsterdam Centrum! Will mosdef coming here again!

Stayed here with my girlfriend for 3 nights. We were welcomed warmly by the staff and we're very helpful about where we could go for dinner as we arrived at night. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. The shower was so good after a long day of travel. Train station and supermarket very close by and ery easy to...

Started Badly with an overpriced room. How ever the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. Zaandam is a very nice town ideally located for Amsterdam, being only a ten minute train journey with trains running frequently. The restruant is very expensive and not value for money. I ordered a Ceaser Salad and ended up with a Sizzling Platter. The...

The whole reason for our trip was to explore Amsterdam, which we'd never visited before, and go to ASOT (A State of Trance) Festival in Utrecht. We wanted something out of the city, cheap, and easy to travel to and from. This hotel ticked all the boxes! The train station was 4 or 5 stops from the airport and took...

The hotel is located very near to train station, where there are direct connections with the aiport or Amsterdam Central station. More over is just one stop ahead from METRO station and threrefor you can easily combine travelling. It's a clean hotel with pleasant and welcome staff. The breakfast was very expensive 12,50 euros per person with no special reason....
