The hotel staff was friendly. The air conditioning and also the heating are very noisy. I hardly could sleep.
great room. goodclub house with good choice of beer including superb ones from Belgium. bar prices the same as a pub in four star suurroundings - very unlike the uk. Very nice English speaking staff. Fantasic low rate for a hotel of this standard at 95 euros for two room without breakfast.
The location near a public transport, nice room. Located near Edam and Volendam.
Relax ambient Rooms not too clean and with big mosquitos in September.At the reception desk they charged the room in my credit card twice.
This hotel is great value for money. The rooms are big and the bathrooms are also adequate. The staff are helpful. The location is great away from the noisy nightlife and still not too far if this is where you which to head for when in possession of a car. Great for golfers ( which I am not ). lots of green surroundings. The breakfast was also great value for money €14.50. Overall I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again but with a car. This hotel is excellent when in possession of a car. I was unfortunately without one on my 2nd stay. The weather was bad, windy, rainy and cold. So needed to use the taxi service offered by my family who live in Purmered. There is apparently a bus stop about 5 minutes walk away from the hotel. I have not been able to locate it. It is also pitch black and deserted for a lone person to make use of this late at night. This due to the lack of street lighting. When in a group of friends it should be manageable. In my room one of the lights was not working. I am sure when called for an engineer it would have been fixed. I was only there for one night.
Our room was on ground floor and had a sliding door to a large grassed area where the children could run around in some nice sunshine. Free parking. Quite a long walk from room to hotel reception.
Nice location Very slow and lazy staff at the evening restaurant, waited 30 min. to be served and another 25 min. for the food.
high value for money nothing
I liked the proximity to the Zaanstreek, A''dam, Enkhuizen, Hoorn, Northsea etc.
good environment, large room, kind staffs. bed too soft, mat too humide. My friend has to keep in sit position while he was sleeping. A long way to go from reception to the rooms.
this is our 2nd visit in this year and we r convinced that we want to keep going there again. best value for money. excellent staff, swimming pool, for weekend breaks, kids friendly. simply superb!
ease of access from the main road and breakfast distance from lobby to hotel room no plug on sink in bathroom (room 152)
Good breakfast to mach chlorine into swimming pool
Clean and comfortable rooms Lack of help to find the rooms
The pool is real size. The internet speed and coverage is very good. Tha staff is friendly. When you make a reservation specify the exact kind of the room double or twin!
Good central location for our purpose and good connection with Amsterdam by public transporttation The only thing we objected to was the the odor of stale smoke in the hall ways . They should prohibit smoking in hotels and restaurants . Otherwise , we had no complaints. The meal service was excellent
We were upgraded to an executive room - very comfortable. Being a low-rise hotel, our room was at a considerable distance from the foyer/restaurant/ bars. I have never used the car to get to breakfast in a hotel before!
They could handle more than two to a room and price was competitive. No ice machines. I realize this is par for the course in Europe, but this is a more modern hotel than most..
We liked the helpful staff, Breakfast was good . we enjoyed our stay. The way to the room was confusing
we were well looked after by the staff and the food was good none
cleansiness of the room and bathroom, location it was freezing cold in the room, even after having switched the heating on for several hours. The reception informed me that this is because all of their hotel guests like their rooms freezing cold...
Breakfast and bar in the evening
Size of room, and location
Everything was perfect.
It is a very clean, comfortable hotel with a friendly and efficient staff.
Friendly staff, very close to citycentre, nice breakfast. Room was very hot, even at night.
Staffs are professional, friendly and helpful. Tall ceiling of the hotel room - I like it.
It was a close distance from the station and to the town, a perfect location, although it was on a main road, but this was not a problem as i was at the back of the hotel
Excellent value for the money, good for business. Huge corner room, real soap, many room comforts. a defect mentioned is lack of restaurant - but a wide, wide selection of excellent ones available starting 200m away at the historic city center. Free wireless only in the lobby, in rooms very expensive.
Good location, can walk to downtown Alkmaar, parking on site, very freindly staff.
LOcation of hotel was wonderful, close to everything. We walked and rented bikes to go places and the train was very close too. The hotel was actually on the wonderful city walking tour. Yes, our room faced the street....terrible sleeping, we were there from Thurs to Monday and the only night we really got any sleep was Sunday night. The street is narrow and all the bar/street noise travelled right up to our room. It was too hot to close the window so ... it was bad. I would ask for an off-street room next time, if I had known.
Location, ease of parking, un-intrusive staff......
Very friendly and helpful staff, lovely rooms, excellent location. We loved the fact the (very good) breakfast was served at the table - it makes a real difference these days. We wíll definitely go back.
Spacious room with extended bathroom facilities no hotel parking but reasonable public parking close to hotel
Rooms well equipped with plenty of room. Lots of attention to decor - if a little camp. Considering they have spent good money on the decor etc, the towels were a bit mean.
Excellent location, very quiet. Room very nicely furnished, with modern shower room. No hooks or shelves in the shower room to hang towels or store items.
attention to detail none
The Hotels location; 10 minute walk from railway station and 2 minutes from centre of town
Breakfast far below average, room to small for price, bath room only soap etc for one person, bad organisation (wrong room number, room not clean on arrival)
friendly service. Nice room parking space
free wifi, nice bar and restaurant on main floor, close to everything, free breakfast not really - great value for money. If anything my room was on the street and a bit noisy
The rooms were comfortable and of good size, and the staff were good. The choice of food for breakfast was very good and well presented. The Hotel was at a good location being just off the motorway and within reasonable walking distance of the town. Parking was ample and free.
General no problem There was no possibility to make some tea at the room, nor there was a fridge
Proximity to Cheese market and City center
the hotel was very clean we took tripel room and it was very big and comfortable the staff was very nice. the only thing that was problematic is the hot-there is no aircondision.
The service at the chinese restaurant.
i was happy to find an iron+board in my room as well as a cofeemachine. the staff at the restaurant was kind. i thought the dinner menu rather poor, i reserved for the dinner offer together with my room reservation.
Very convenienty for az football stadium No swimming pool
We had a room for tree persons,the room was very convenient and roomy.Breakfast was excellent with a large assortment. none
Friendly staff. Good location
location poor breakfast
We now the city of Alkmaar, Holland and this hotel is just accross the railroad station and all busses with connections to many parts of the north of Holland. Also Alkmaar is an old city and easy to walk about and of course their famous Friday cheesemarket during summertime is interesting to visitors. No, we liked it. People have to realize this "hotel" is actually a number of small homes transformed into rooms for visitors. Good breakfast and also dinners.
friendly service, supportive, cosy atmosphere 3-Bed room with toilet/shower open to the room, no bathroom-door. More style for a youth hostel.
Staff friendly, helpful. Good breakfast. Room clean with large with comfy chairs.
Parking is a problem, overnight parking has to be in the station car park. The room we stayed was accessed from reception (which is the bar area) via the street, the room although clean was very basic
The friendliness of the staff. The quality and good value of the food. Lack of on-site car parking. Room facilities a bit basic.
very close to train station and near to the city center, breakfast was very good, staff was nice and helpful, bathroom was large and useable
Very good location, only a few meters away from the bus stops/railway station. Good breakfast, included in the price.
Bed was made of memory foam and amazingly comfy. Cereal and dark bread very nice at breakfast. Room very sparsely furnished and basic. Paying in advance made me feel that I was not trusted. Pqrking axkward. Price quite expensive for standard of room, but Holland is dear generally.
Easy to find, vast parking, large room, large bed, free WiFi at the restaurant & lobby. Poor TV channel offer, Charges on WiFI from the room.
Quiet location, vast parking, large room, free WiFi at the reception and bar, large bed, good rate sometimes, easy to find, excellent restaurant (good value 3-course dinner). WiFi in room with charges, but cheap (€5 for 24h), location noisy at the last stay, due to construction works on the back of the hotel, street on the back noisy in the morning (garbage trucks backuping).
Friendly staff and comfortable rooms in a great setting with countryside views within easy reach of Amsterdam as well as seaside resorts such as Zandvoort and Egmond-en-Zee. There were only a couple of English speaking TV channels, but I didn't go there to watch TV, so it wasn't that important.
Room confort Breakfast is not very varied, food is provided in very small quantities and is missing rapidly. Some efforts are recommended to improve breakfast quality.
staff were very friendly and helpfull the taxi service we used doubled from the day we arrived which was not the hotels fault
Friendly and helpful staff Bedroom carpet required cleaning, possibly stained by coffee/juice otherwise the room was well cleaned every day.
Friendly personnel. Nice Bar & Restaurant. Ample parking Dinner service slightly slow
Very good location and friendly staff. Very convenient to have bicycles for rent on premises. Restaurant was quite good for evening meals. Would have appreciated brewed coffee instead of from a machine for Breakfast. Breakfast offerings were depleted by large tour groups on one morning. And too many items prepackaged in plastic. Gave a less personal feeling. Was charged 12.50 euro for a lunch packet which simply had the same items offered for breakfast.
good place for travel by car in this zone
Very convenient for the beaches and town of Alkmaar. Pleasant surroundings The breakfast buffet looked disappointing for the price so we chose not to have it
car park is "public" and our car was broken into at 1.30 a.am. Hotel security almost caught thief who made off on bicycle! Later help was 1st class good facilities and comfortable rooms
good size room no
the room was very clean the breakfast was poor and not very good; the restaurant is to small and there is no place where you can sit and have a drink. we did'nt know it is a " Zorghotel ".
Fantastic reclining bed's with large clean room's. It is a very quiet hotel with most guests being 50+ years of age. Location is slightly out of centre.
Absolutely Everything Perhaps some relaxing comfy chairs in the lounge bar area.
The location of the hotel is excellent as it is right in the centre of town and very close to all the shops and nightlife. The rooms were very big, clean and comfortable.
The area was very clean with towels, dishes, TV, movies. A great place to stay with everything you need.
The Hotel isin a very suprizing location, the room is very comfortable and clean, 5 minuts from the center and we loved it. The only remark is that you shuold mantion in the web site that during the day to come to the adress of the book store.
location to the shops seagulls and church bells keeping me awake.
Use of kitchen was great. Nice spacious rooms, good location, fair price. Friendly owners. The bathroom is shared, and the door to access it is in the dining area. You have little privacy using the bathroom if people are eating. It is a bit of a poor layout. Noisey rooms - church bells, thin walls, noisey soda machine in hall.
We liked the large space, especially for two families with small children we had fun. The interior is modern and luxury decorated. We could make use of the kitchen. The third appartment was not occupied so we had the whole place for ourselves. The owner is very helpful. The views from the hotel are on the roof in between the shops in the walking area. The breakfast was very basic, but there is a good bakery next to the hotel.
It was great to be able to cook for ourselves after 2 weeks of dining out and do some much needed laundry. The location was great and the appartment is huge and very well appointed. I wish we had known that we had to go through the shop on the other side of the building to check-in or call the person. Since we couldn't read the sign that was probably saying to do so, and the booking didn't mention anything about it, we saw a phone number and my husband had to track a pay phone all over town to be able to check-in. I would suggest that booking.com mention that point in their hotel description or the booking voucher.
Very friendly staff and clean rooms.
Very nice and large room, nice staff. The bathroom was in common with the other two appartments.
I would go back to Alkmaar just to stay at this family hotel again. It was so nice and comfortable, that we did not want to leave to do sight seeing. It is in the middle of the shopping district and very close to the cheese market, so you can easily pop back to use your own bathroom facilities rather than public ones.
Pleasant hotel convenient for Purmerend and Amsterdam. Staff very helpful Two beds pushed together are not a double bed!! Sleeping was unconfortable because there were two single mattresses not a proper double one. The booking is misleading on this.
Wonderfully comfortable room and quite location.
The food was excelent as usual, My complements to your chef, Room was Noisy, dirty, your mantanace of room 23 as your receptionist agreed was appalling
Friendly an adequate. Our two rooms were too far away from each other, so we needed our handies.
quite area, nice staff, good parking place, easy to travel to most interesting places in Holland
Nothing, i will never go again there. The room was not cleaned for at least a month, dust everywhere, pillows had a very strong body/ old sweat smell. We asked to chance them, what they did. Bathroom was very, very small. Impossible to brush your teeth, because of very small sink, less than 30 cm. No heating troughout the room and bathroom. Beds are very used e.g. springs where broken. I had the idea that this was an spare room, altough we booked 4 weeks in advance. Maybe its only the room we had, number 29 but we will never go again there. This hotel is part of a chain, but we never had such a bad room before in other hotels of the same chain. This is below there standards.
The hotel is near the center of Purmerend, but in a very quiet corner surrounded by a canal with geese and trees. It has a wide parking area that is free and rents very good bicycles at low price. The room was wide and comfortable. Breakfast and internet connexion are expensive. Most rooms are in the first floor and the hotel has not elevator.
Great parking, good breakfast, comfortable room and great bathroom and shower. Easy access to town by foot. Te and coffee should be standard in all rooms as in the UK
Nice personnel; close to downtown; good breakfast; excellent room rate.
Quiet, friendly, nice place for relaxe, for couples,
The owner of the hotel was incredibly helpful and friendly. The room was spotless when we arrived and the facilities available were excellent. The free wifi was also great. Location was outside of Amsterdam and required a train to go back and forth but even with the location this hotel was worth staying at.
friendly service. personal touch. perfect soft boiled eggs for breakfast.
The kindness of the staff Yes, I did not notice the opening hours of the hotel. At weekends it only opens at 4pm. I arrived in Amsterdam at 1PM. Fortunately I was saved by a shop attendant close to the hotel who phoned them and asked them to open the door for me.
convenient location near train station - trains run until after midnight
near to amsterdam,good breakfast for little money,nice staff and rooms.and very good restaurant niets
Very nice, small hotel outside of Amsterdam. Very close to the train station.
