Quiet 3 star hotel close to the Station, room and bed comfortable but a bit dark. The food in the restaurant was good, but make sure you book a table if you want to eat there Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, we didn't and couldn't get in, however the chef was happy to cook us a meal which we took...

Stayed here for one night and were very pleasantly surprised; the outside doesn't look like much (was a former office building apparently), but inside the room was really nice, clean and well laid out, with all the little bits that are missing more and more from hotels these days, a lovely bathroom with very good shower. Quite a nice atmosphere...

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...

Good hotel. Really good buffet breakfast. Far from Amsterdam central. You have to catch a train to go anywhere. The hotel is closer to the Wind mills. Not much to see in the area. But good price for a nice hotel with breakfast!

This hotel is in an excellent location - just around the corner from the train station, it's quick and easy to get to the airport, Amsterdam and Zaanse Schans and other locations. Smoking room off the bar is very handy for...

Visited Amsterdam between Christmas and new year stayed in this hotel and had a lovely stay. Train from airport to the hotel was approximately 10-15 mins and then just a walk around the corner with a local supermarket. The train into the central was only two stops and took approx 10 mins and ran very regularly. Staff were very friendly...

I made the Zaan Inn my home base for a weekend in Amsterdam. Overall, it was a very pleasant visit without any disappointments. For the asked price, the hotel delivered a very good overall performance. My main reason to choose it was the location. Just a two-minute walk from the station was perfect, for guest arriving by car there is...

For those who like to avoid the crowded Amsterdam city, this is the place. Nicely located near Zaandam station and the central. We stayed four nights in a family suite which is spacious and clean. There is a pantry area which equipped with a kettle and a microwave oven, some plates and cutleries. There were no bottles water provided. It...

We drove to Amsterdam the parking there was free. Easy access to the training station which takes max minutes to reach the centre. The hotel itself very modern, has all facilities in, specious, the staff are very friendly and free wifi (not that strong) All in all, this will definitely be my choice when I go back to Amsterdam.
