Having stayed in the busy craziness of Amsterdam previously, I was looking for something quieter and uniquely Dutch. Loved staying at Hotel De Fortuna and eating there for four nights. Our room, location, food and service were splendid. The included breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Mr Dekker, the manager, provides a wonderful experience.

For us, Edam was a great way to enjoy a tranquil, idyllic setting, conveniently in the middle of the north Amsterdam area.

EBS bus line sells a 24 hour pass for about 12 euros which let us zip out to Alkmarr for the cheese rituals, Zaanse Schans for the windmills, Horn, Marken, etc. and even the 30-40 minutes down to Amsterdam Centraal Train Station whenever we felt like sightseeing without having to pay the high price to sleep in a cubbyhole.

I'll stay here again next time!

We stayed for a week and loved it. We were able to rent bikes in Edam and spent the week biking around the area. The breakfasts were plentiful. We ate one night at the hotel's restaurant - the food was amazing. For dinner reservations are needed, but you then have the table for the evening and can have a leisurely meal. As others have said, the rooms aren't big, but that is because they are rooms that were built as part of a home- not as a purpose-build hotel. The room was clean, had everything we needed, had a lovely view of the canal that borders two sides of the hotel. We were able to have the window open to let in the fresh breeze, but the room looked like it would be warm and cozy during cold weather. The staff and owners were warm, friendly, and very gracious. We didn't have a car, but took the local bus from Amsterdam's Central train Station to Edam's bus station which is a few short blocks from the hotel. If you bring a car, there are a few nearby parking options. We saw other travelers with kids and/or pets.

Wonderful!
My mom and I stayed here for 8 nights in end of June/early July while in Edam to do a sewing workshop with the Dressmakers Academy and it was the perfect location. The room was lovely, as was the included breakfast each morning with great options. In the room we had two beds which were singles, the room was a great size for the two of us for 8 nights, and there were windows which opened to the restaurant courtyard (we were on the second floor), and it was lovely to let in fresh air. One of the nights we also ate in the restaurant which was wonderful as well! This was a lovely hotel (and restaurant) and I highly recommend staying here.

In a word I would describe Hotel De Fortuna in Edam as idyllic! My wife and I spent 3 nights at Hotel De Fortuna in early October. Even at that point in the fall season we were able to spend time basking in sun on the canal lined hotel patio. Our room looked out over that tree lined canal. It seemed every tour group that passed over the canal bridge stopped to take a photo of the hotel. Yes, Hotel De Fortuna is that picturesque! The dining area used for a very good continental breakfast and evening dining was very pleasant. We ate one dinner in the hotel dining room, and the meal was excellent.
Nicholas our host was extremely friendly and helpful in his travel suggestions for the area. The hotel provided a free parking pass at a nearby public lot. Edam proved an excellent base for day trips to the area sites of Marken, Volendam, and Hoorn. Edam itself was a lovely town to visit on foot. With it’s cobblestone streets and tree lined canals Edam was a stroller’s paradise. Hotel De Fortuna will stay long in our memory as very special.

We enjoyed our stay in this charming hotel in picturesque Edam. The rooms are quite small but clean and cosy. The only downside is that the walls are thin so you might hear your neighbours. Luckily our neighbours weren't party people so it didn't bother us. The restaurant served good food and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The local rooster greeted each morning with a serenade and the ducks in the canal loved to be treated with seeds and some bread. It was all very idyllic and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

We chose to stay in Edam because it was central to all of the towns we wanted to visit in the Netherlands. We wanted somewhere charming, quiet, and less overwhelming than Amsterdam. This hotel gave us exactly what we wanted. Edam has a very peaceful vibe and so does this hotel. We stayed in a Junior Suite on the ground floor that was right on the canal. It felt very private and had a great view. The room was clean and decorated very uniquely with lots of colors. I really appreciated this! The free breakfast was in their lovely dining room. The croissants were especially good! We told them we needed parking in advance of our stay, and we were given a parking pass for a nearby parking lot. Which was free for us and worked out perfectly. This hotel is also very close to the bus station. It was a very easy 5-10 minute walk there so we could take a bus to Amsterdam for the day. We highly recommend this hotel and town!

Stopped by for lunch at this quaint spot along the canal with a friend. We were ignored for 10 minutes until I flagged down a server. I asked if we could see a menu and she said she would bring some. 10 minutes later, she brought them and we ordered a coffee and iced tea. The drinks were brought fairly quickly, but she left without taking our order. 15 minutes later, we were able to flag down another server and order our food. In all this time other tables were seated, ordered and served food. Our lackluster Triple Grilled Edam and ham sandwiches arrived. They were far from the best toastie I've had. The service is awful and what hoped to be a fun lunch in Edam turned out to be a frustratingly poor experience.

Dear Susan! We have taken note of your review with interest. Indeed, mistakes may have been made. It was probably busy on the terrace that day. We do a lot to guide our young employees in the best possible way. Most of them are doing excellently. There are a lot of talented ladies and gentlemen among them. We offer our sincerest apologies for the misery suffered and sincerely hope that you will give us another chance in the future.

We just returned from a wonderful trip to the Netherlands, including a delightful stay at the De Fortuna. We had stayed here 15 years ago, and it is the same but more up-to-date furnishings, and a lot more rooms have been added. The room was a nice size, the bathroom more than adequate, although small, and the setting lovely. Just sit on the patio beside the restaurant and the canal, and all kinds of interesting things happen! You can also order your favorite drinks and snacks, or have a lovely dinner inside the restaurant in the evening. Breakfast is included with the room.

The town of Edam is small, and very peaceful and quaint. It makes you wish you were lucky enough to live there! At least you always know you can visit, and be treated like a special guest!

My wife and I booked into this hotel/restaurant, through booking.com, for 3 days as we were visiting family in nearby Purmerend. Before we booked I read the reviews for the hotel on TA and they were largely very positive. The salient points were the idyllic location the good food and the friendliness of the staff in what is a family run establishment. Great stuff!

We arrived on probably the hottest day in northern Europe for donkey's years. We left home near London at 6.30am and arrived about 12 hours later having been delayed at Brussels Midi station for over two hours (all those who think that railways on the continent run perfectly take note). We had taken a bus from Amsterdam Central Station to Edam Bus Station and then took the short walk along the canal to the hotel. Naturally we arrived soaked with perspiration and fairly tired as we are spring chickens no longer.

We were "greeted" by Karen who I gather is part of the owning family. Trying to be objective, perhaps it was the heat or it was busy (it didn't look it) or there were staff problems, whatever. Karen was not in the slightest bit interested in the fact that we had just travelled for half a day in oppressive heat and was dismissive, offhand and unfriendly making it quite clear that she wanted to get us into a room as quickly as possible. Firstly she showed us a small room with a double bed against the wall which we rejected. The only other alternative was a slightly bigger first floor room (previous reviews do reflect room sizes) which was stinking hot with the windows firmly shut. She agreed to provide a fan.

We were tempted after our reception to eat elsewhere but as it was just gone 7pm and we were very tired we decided to eat there. Obviously we wanted a bit of time to sort ourselves out and suggested 8pm for a table to Karen who clearly wanted us to eat earlier. "OK 7.30-8" she said (clearly more concerned about staff's rather than guests' needs). We managed to get to a table just before 8 in their lovely spot right alongside the canal with little or no help from the staff who waved disparagingly towards an unoccupied table. Then service had to be acquired rather than offered to us unlike a Dutch couple on an adjoining table who were attended to briskly, pleasantly and efficiently.

Needless to say none of this augured well for a three night stay. However things bucked up in the shape of the cuisine which I have to say was excellent and a young very pleasant male member of staff (barman I believe) produced a bottle of perfectly chilled white wine and a well stocked ice bucket. Naturally things took on a rosier complexion although we were not looking forward to a night in the very hot room.

Sure enough we did have a pretty sleeplessness night during which I was quite sick (I don't blame the hotel or the food for that). Come the morning and I felt I could eat a small breakfast. The buffet was adequate and the inside restaurant area is very atmospheric and typically Dutch. Again though the young female member of staff was offhand and irritable. The good news was that a battalion of portable air con units had appeared overnight and Karen was slightly more affable. Unfortunately though we'd also been saddled with a bed dumped in the small hallway right outside our room.

That evening we had intended to eat elsewhere but the alternatives were limited and unappealing so we again ate at De Fortuna. The food was, as the previous evening, superb as was the wine (different barman - minimal ice). On both nights the restaurant was very popular and is clearly and unsurprisingly a favourite with the locals. We again went to our room with trepidation as the air con unit had steadfastly refused to be set at a low temperature and kept returning to 31 degrees which is no good to man or beast. Thus we were stuck with another fan, graciously supplied by Karen, which could have been the reason for another night with stomach pains, nevertheless it was virtually sleepless.

The next morning, after breakfast, I approached Karen's brother-in-law and explained the difficulty and the fact that we would not be staying for the third night. He was very understanding, pleasant and helpful and showed us a larger room in a small house in the grounds but we had decided that enough was enough particularly as there was no guarantee it would be any cooler. Initially he said that he would still have to charge for the third night as we had booked through booking.com and they would charge him (lesson for the future) but later he very graciously said that he would only charge half for the third night which we agreed upon.

This is one of the most difficult reviews I have done and I have couched it in very careful terms and as accurately as possible because I have some sympathy with the owners who have gone for years without the sort of heat we experienced (1976 was the last I think). The staff problems are more difficult to explain as some of them were fine but others clearly disgruntled. Whilst we were there there was a furious lengthy staff row within our earshot which left the male owner looking understandably quite sheepish. Thus I have rated the hotel as VG because in the right circumstances and temperature I am sure it would be a perfect play to stay especially given it's lovely convenient location.

The individual ratings reflect our personal experience but I would not for one moment dissuade anyone from staying at De Fortuna provided temperatures are normal, including the staff's!
