“Excellent hospitality and comfortable rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2011

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in Nov 2011. Our apartment was well equipped with an attached kitchen with all amenities, living space with sofa-set, center table, book-shelf with audio system, dining/working table, comfortable beds and a spacious bathroom with a bath-tub.

The strongest point of this hotel was their staff who were very friendly and helpful. On one occasion, when we were trying to book train tickets on-line and the website was not accepting non-European credit cards, one of the staff gladly booked the tickets for us using her own funds. (Of course we did reimburse her in cash).

As the hotel did not have elevators, all our heavy luggage was carried through the stairs by the hotel staff, which I think is not too common in Europe.

The location of the hotel is in a quiet and peaceful locality with tram stops within close vicinity and cabs available just round the corner.

The owner, Mr Henk and his wonderful staff do deserve a round of applause for their effort to keep their guests comfortable and happy. We would love to stay there again.

Room Tip: Apartments are simply wonderful.

This hotel is a little far out but the number 2 tram stops almost right outside of the door within 5 minutes of the Leidseplein. Friendly staff and free internet. I'd stay again.

Hotel Zandbergen is away from the busiest part of Amsterdam in a quiet and leafy part of town. The disadvantage of this is that either a tram ride or a 20-30 minute walk was required to get to the canals and many of the sites. The advantages were avoiding the crowds and a quiet nights sleep! Henk deserves a round of applause for the fantastic service he provides at Hotel Zandbergen. He went out of his way to ensure I was happy and comfortable and even presented me with a small gift on departure. The room was small but comfortable and clean. Two small gripes; the single bed linen didn't really fit the king single bed and the room was really quite warm overnight with no means to control the temperature apart from opening the window. The breakfast was generous and offered variety. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel for future stays.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back would be quieter.

We stayed 3 nights at this small hotel. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The location in a quiet residential area across from Vondelpark could not have been better. The number 2 tram
provided great access or connections to all areas we wanted to see as well as transport to and from the train station. We purchased Van Gogh Museum tickets from Henk, who was most charming and helpful. We skipped the tram and enjoyed a pleasant walk back to the Zandenberg after our museum visit. Breakfast was good each morning and served in a very pleasant and cheerful room. Our room, although small, was comfortable. Our stay in Amsterdam was greatly enhanced by such a pleasant experience at the Hotel Zandenberg.

I booked this hotel for a pre-river cruise stay. We stayed two nights. Two couples in two rooms and from the start the hotel staff was accommodating.
One couple appreciated a ground floor room and the hotel staff was quick to reserve the one room available for them. It was narrow but had all good space for a short stay. All rooms, and the hotel, were very clean and well stocked.
We, the other party had a room, down a steep flight of stairs. Tho' our room was basement level we had a walk out back door into the garden. The room was narrow but comfortable and the bathroom was not small and well equipped.
This hotel is well located within a short walk to a wonderful cheese shop (around the corner after you turn right out the door) and local coffee shops and restaurants. You feel you are in the locals Amsterdam and can easily walk to wonderful options. Trolley #2 is just outside and that takes you to all the major sites.
Lastly, the staff is WONDERFUL. They are so helpful in answering your every inquiry.
Highly recommend this hotel for a locally owned and quality stay.
