Best Western Zaan Inn
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Zaandam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Clean comfortable room. Nothing spectacular but it is one of the nicer 3 star hotels I have stayed at. Staff was very friendly and helpful! The hotel has a bar downstairs and it has some vending machines if you get hungry/thirsty in the middle of the night. This hotel a little far from Amsterdam but it is only 2 train stops from the Central Station in Amsterdam so it was perfect. The train station is only 2-4 minute walk from the hotel and was 5.30 euro round trip to the Central Station. Parking was free which is always great. I did not try the breakfast which was 7.50 euro because right on the other side of the train station, there is a shopping center with great food. Make sure you check it out. Overall, the hotel was the perfect fit for our needs.

We enjoyed our stay so much we extended by another week after our first week. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and a great alternative to hostels at the time! The train station to Amsterdam is literally only a couple of minutes away too! The staff were amazingly hospitable! The smoking room near the bar was also a lovely addition, especially in February!!

Just back yesterday after spending four nights here. The staff were lovely and friendly, the rooms spacious and clean, plenty of towels/tea/coffee etc. The bar is great for a pint after a day spent in the city. The restaurant is top class - the food was lovely. The train station is about a three or four minute walk away and then centraal station and thus Amsterdam is about 15 mins by train at a cost of 4 euro return. By staying here you are saving mega bucks on a much more expensive hotel in the city centre. Zandaan town centre is at the other end of the train station and had lots of lovely cafes and shops - well worth spending an hour or tow there as well. I had a lovely stay - am very fussy but would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Recently stayed here with my 11 year old son. I was able to upgrade to a huge suite as the prices were so reasonable.
We loved it as it was so handy for Amsterdam on bikes or the train as well as the countryside in the opposite direction, great place.
I do agree that it looks like an office block from outside but it more than made up for it indoors.
I usually stay on the other side of the railway in the heart of Zaandam but I have to say that I prefer it here as it was very quiet so you get the best of both worlds.
I definitely would recommend it for value for money.

The hotel seemed to be a bit out of the way at first as I had hired a car and drove there from the airport. However once I realised its proximity to the train station and how easy it was to travel back and forth on the train system - the car stayed in the secure car park - after all it was free~!
My friend was a smoker and she enjoyed the downstairs smokers lounge greatly - since the rooms are all - thankfully - smoke free. The attached bar offered us quite easy refreshments, and delicious food. I would make the comment that there was no amenities like tea/coffee making in the room - nor a microwave - we felt that our overall stay of 5 nights was just superb.

We were told about this hotel by another person who had stayed there to go to Keukenhof. We decided to stay there when we found out there was free parking and it was right next to the train station which was only 2 stops to Centraal station - perfect! It was cheap even though we booked a week out. The room was small, but comfortable. There was a flat screen television and free wifi. The bathroom however was not exactly 'private' but as we are married, it was fine. We paid for the breakfast, which had a great selection (we loved the croissants!). We ended up travelling to Keukenhof after our 2 days of exploring Amsterdam, and that was only a 45 minute drive. We would definitely stay again if we chose to drive to Amsterdam again. Oh- one thing though - our heating wouldn't let us go above 20 centigrade, and we both had colds at the time it was a bit horrible!

It is a new, basic, clean, comfortable hotel, it has a flat screen TV and free WiFi shower room and air-con & the hotel food is good and reasonable price it is easy to get to and is only a few minutes from the station. To get into Zaandam you have to walk back through the station. Zaandam is a lovely town with a waterway down the main street with many shops leading to Damm square which has lots of lovely restaurants. Can recommend The Mail Company has excellent sandwiches and snacks, The Wok Chinese buffet restaurant with suchi, sashimi & top quality meats and fish to cook wok or teppanaki style and the Spanish Tapas restaurant opposite the back of Etam. A good trip is to Zaanse Schans to see the Windmills, wooden building and local heritage, takes about 7/8 minutes on the bus, well worth it.
We will definitely stay at the Zaan Inn Hotel again which is excellent value for money, we have stayed at Inntels before which is very good and more convenient to Zaandam but is twice the price.
