“Comfortable stay”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

The hotel is located in the countryside, about 20 minutes drive from Amsterdam. The town of Volendam is simply beautiful with little streets and tiny, cute houses. There are a bunch of great seafood restaurants just a short drive from the hotel.
Our room was spacious, had an air conditioning. There was also a balcony, but it is not very private. It has no dividers on the sides, so if your neighbours are on their balcony at the same time you feel like you are hanging out on the balcony together. Luckily, our neighbours did not use their balcony very often, so we go to enjoy ours.
There is a bar and restaurant in the hotel where you can enjoy late night drinks. The service in the bar is mediocre, I have to say. The servers are not overly friendly and it takes a while to get your order.

This hotel was very disappointing. The corridors were like a sauna, the rooms hot enough for chocolate to melt in (and it did!). A noisy table-top fan was provided, but it didn't help much. There was a patio, but it ran the full length of the hotel without dividers, so there was a lot of noise from other guests and little privacy. As for the staff, well, it took us two visits to reception and one phone call over two days to get some shower gel (which should have been there in the first place), and if you want a drink at the bar, be prepared for a long wait (really, every time!) while the barman has a chat with his colleagues, generally picks his nose or forgets about you completely (and don't expect an apology, let alone a smile - you should feel honoured to be in the same room!). The room was not particularly clean - dusty in the bathroom and the room itself, and a peanut on the floor when we arrived survived our entire stay of four nights. Dirty glasses in the room were just left where they were. The terrace of the hotel could be nice, but there were bird droppings on almost every chair. Breakfast is ok (although depending on your deal you probably have to pay for it), with a big plus of fresh orange juice. The location of the hotel is not good - about 2 km outside Volendam, so a long way to walk. There are buses to Amsterdam taking 20/30 minutes, depending on which one you catch. A cheaper option is the park and ride - but it may be full on a busy Saturday.

Room Tip: Don't, just don't!

We booked this hotel because we have been pleased with other Van Der Valk hotels before. This one was a disappointment. The room we got seemed ok but the air conditioning made very loud noises every couple of minutes so we eventually asked to move rooms. We were given an inferior room but took it to get away from the noise. Unfortunately, the noise continued in this room as well and we were beside the gym car park which also made it noisy. The room itself and the facilities were ok but I would not recommend this hotel based on our experience.

Room Tip: Not all rooms at this hotel have air conditioning. Unfortunately, the air conditioned rooms we got w...

Not sure how a 4 star hotel cannot have ac? Our so called superior room was dusty and the half dark wood paneling overbearing and dull. The only ventilation was by leaving the patio door open. The patio runs the full length of the hotel floor with nothing to stop another guest from entering our room. Smoking is also allowed on the patio so other peoples smoke just drifted in! Not to our liking and wouldn't stop here again. On the up side staff are helpful and the food reasonable. In my view the entire hotel needs modernisation.

Perhaps see this almost as a 2 centre break - All the attractions of Amsterdam not too far away - together with this hotel located within the delightful Dutch countryside near Volendam - where you can relax.
The bus from Amsterdam Central Station will drop you off just outside the hotel (takes about 30 mins) Bus service is efficient & the drivers are helpful. We had an early flight both arriving & departing & thought that we may have to schedule a taxi (expensive) However the bus service was absolutely fine - Reception will provide a time table if you ask
Hotel service is polite & efficient You need only ask if there is anything you are unsure of
The room we were allocated was smart & spacious with 2 comfortable single beds together A nice seating area & a balcony with chairs & coffee table outside Bathroom was also spacious & included bath & separate shower etc Plenty of toiletries are provided There are coffee & tea making facilities in the room - and a fridge too
Linger over breakfast and enjoy
We had bar meals on 3 evenings which were well priced & good
You can walk, cycle, or take a quick bus ride to Volderdam which has a small shopping centre, a pretty harbour & quaint little house lined streets
Edam is also well worth a visit

Room Tip: Can't compare to other rooms We were allocated a room on the second floor overlooking the back o...

We booked a luxury room for 5 nights as we were with our 18 month old son and wanted a relaxing holiday yet close to were we wanted to go. Volendam which is a lovely small fishing village is about a 5 min bus ride which you can catch exactly in front of the hotel but we walked it from hotel to Volendam 3 times which takes about an hour walk but believe me its worth the walk as you will see all the nature around this hotel with sheep and cows and all kind of birds and small lakes , wonderful. We also went 3 times to Amsterdam (30 min) as the buses are really user friendly and efficient and always on time. We travelled with the buggy and was really easy. Room we stayed in was spacious and clean and had a balcony overlokking the lake and fields which was wonderful. Breakfast was very good with a really good selection of hot and cold dishes and freshly baked pastries. We ate 3 times as well at the Hotel restaurant which serves really good food at reasonable prices. For us , which was the first time travelling with our baby , it was an excellent holiday as we were treated really well from all Hotel staff and other people around were we travelled. Will surely come back again one day. Highly reccomend this Hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 420 which had a perfect view

It was a nice stay for three nights. The first thing we loved about this hotel was the location, about 3-4 km from Volendam, a lovely village and 15 km from Amsterdam. We saw cows and ships from our room and we loved it. At first, we didn't like the room because of the smell but they changed it. They have different rooms depending on the price (big or smaller, close or far from reception etc). The breakfast was ok and we tried also the food from their menu and we were satisfied. I reccomand the hotel.
