We stayed at the hotel for 4D/4N and booked a comfort double room.
Location-wise the hotel was fabulous and one has to walk about 2 minutes to get to the Zaandam station. Regular trains connect Zaandam to the airport and Amsterdam Centraal and cost-wise it was almost 30% cheaper than similar hotels in Amsterdam, so this is a fair trade-off for the cost-conscious.
The rooms had simple but good furnishing. There was a gigantic bed and good air-conditioning. Even though it is very close to the trains (I could see the station from my windows if I drew the curtains), it was very quiet inside. Everyone I interacted with - the receptionists, hotel manager and the bartender were very polite and helpful and spoke fluent English, which really helps.
Overall, it is not a resort so dont expect frills. If you want to move around Netherlands and want easy access to Amsterdam and the airport, this hotel is a very good bet.
PS: I did not try the restaurant, so I can not comment on the food
