      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel The Neighbour'S Magnolia Amsterdam

      So good we just have to go back!

      from

      Hotel Zandbergen is a lovely hotel a street away from the Vondel Park, Amsterdam's most beautiful park by far! Within walking distance of 3 museums and the Leidseplein you couldn't ask for more for a weekend getaway. The hotel is run by husband and wife Robert and Margaret Vonk who were very helpful in answering our questions about the city. The room was clean and overlooked a little garden at the rear. And the coffee was to die for! We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent in this lovely hotel and have already made reservartions to return in the Summer.

      A 'must stay there again' place to stay

      from

      Having read the review entitled "Stay At A Nice Bed & Breakfast Instead", I felt I really should put the record straight. We found Hotel Zanbergen to be a charming hotel only a short tram ride away from the city centre. Our room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The proprietors, a husband and wife team, spent time with us giving advice on where to eat, what to do and helping with tour bookings. The breakfasts, supplied in ample quantities, were great consisting of a selection of cereals, meat, cheese, eggs, bread and delicious coffee. Check in and check out were both handled quickly and professionally. Great value for money - I would definitely stay there again and would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to spend time in Amsterdam.

      Stay At A Nice Bed & Breakfast Instead

      from

      If you're looking for warm and fuzzy in Amsterdam, don't stay at the Hotel Zandbergen. The owners run a tight ship with army-like percision. That means it is very clean, neat and orderly, but it has no personality. Breakfast is sparse (cereal, a boiled egg, ham and cheese). One day they ran out of bread. I asked the owner to make a reservation for a tour for me. He told me I could use the phone in my room and do it myself. When I called the message was in Dutch and I missed the tour. Another caveat. Although the website for the hotel says "Cash Payment At Reception Desk 10% Off", the owners refused to honor this and would not give us a 10% discount when we asked to pay cash. With all the lovely bed and breakfasts in Amsterdam that are less expensive, I wouldn't stay here again. I think you pay too much for too little.

      I would like to refer to the comments made on Trip Advisor and specifically in relation to the following URL: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g188590-d237582-r2130957-Hotel_Zandbergen-Amsterdam_Noord_Holland.html.

      Stay At A Nice Bed & Breakfast Instead"

      First of all, it is a shame that some individuals do not have the decency, or maybe the courage, to come out in the open personally and directly so that complaints can be taken care of by the department or person responsible.

      My wife and I have been running Hotel Zandbergen for the last 18 years and it can be said that (unfortunately there are no exact figures available) over 90 percent of our guests are very satisfied with the services we offer. May I suggest to who ever wants to make enquiries about Hotel Zandbergen they visit our web site. Just feed in our Hotel name into any well known search engine and you will find us. Click on our guest book and you'll be surprised at the lovely comments. What you read is true!

      Thanks to all those honorable guests who we have taken the trouble and put their wonderful reviews on our site, and on Trip Advisor.com too!

      Further more, I would like to suggest that in choosing a service or product of any kind, via the internet, one can also refer to the web site of that particular service or product directly so as to obtain the latest updates on the information you are looking for. It is surprising as to how inaccurate some websites are who promote or advertise on behalf of others.

      Yours Sincerely,

      Very happy with the Zandbergen

      from

      We stayed at the Zandbergen from March 19-21, 2004. The rooms were very clean and the hosts very accommodating. The hotel is situated in a good location. You can take tram #2 from the train station and be at the Zandbergen in 10 minutes. You can also pick up the tram and be at the Rijks or the Van Gough museum in 5 minutes. The hotel is owned and operated by a husband and wife. They were very helpful in letting us check in early and paid attention to all our questions even making reservations at a restaurant that they suggested and that was very good. They also serve a very nice breakfast. I would recommend the Zandbergen to anyone wanting to stay in Amsterdam.

      Great Location and Breakfast

      from

      This hotel was only a 25 cab ride from the airport. It is also possible to take the train to the central station, then take tram #2 to Emmastraat. Either way, it is convenient as route #2 goes by the museums, the Hard Rock Cafe and a large area of various other restaurants, Dam Square and ends at the central station. The rooms were large enough, as were the bathrooms, and very clean. The stairs were very steep, but this is the case for every hotel in Amsterdam it seems. The breakfast was wonderful, with a variety of breads, meat, cheese and cereal. I would definitely stay here again.

      Charming Hotel Zanbergen

      from

      Hotel Zandbergen was very clean, convenient and lovely. The beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms surprisingly spacious and the service was top-notch. Breakfast was delicious, esp. the coffee. The proprietor's did everything to ensure we were pleased. I will definitely stay there on my next trip to Amsterdam.

      Hotel Zandbergen

      from

      Ideally situated in the mainly residential area. It is a 10 minute tram ride to the city centre and on the tram route of many of the major attractions. The hotel is clean and comfortable with friendly helpful staff. I would certainly recommend it to anyone wanting a moderately priced hotel.

      ... hotel to wait for sunset and a boat trip to see the Amsterdam Light Festival from the canals. Really busy - lots of people queuing to see this and go on the boats. Very pretty and the Amsterdam natives don't seem to care about people seeing into their houses so you got to see into a whole lot of living rooms. Dinner in the hotel again - it was good last night so we decided to try again, just as good second time ...

      ... to the Adrian Sea, where we hope to stay at least a day. The van is getting travel-tired I think because he slows down a LOT when going uphill. Even on straight roads we are lucky to go 80km/hr. Uphill I have to go back to often have to go back to 2nd gear! Mira has good idea to gain some speed. We do what racing cyclist do, staying just behind the one in front to catch as little wind as possible. So here we are tailing truck drivers, and it works!

The area offers unique dishes or crafts and we browsed the shops before sitting down at a nice "drug-free" cafe. Even though most people in Holland speak English, we still attempted to pick up a few kind words to help interact with people. So with a "dunk je wel" and a smile we left the waiter and ...

      ... We also visited the Sex Museum, which explores the depiction of sex through the ages. This is actually quite interesting and alongside the "what the butler saw machines" and early Edwardian pornographic images, there is actually some revealing (pun intended and unavoidable!) insight into sex through the ages. There are displays of erotic art from the ancient greeks, who of course are well known for being big fans of sex. some of the pictures on display, do make you ...

The Master's work is represented by his marvelous etchings-a treat for the eye. In addition we see his studio, the classroom, and elaborate and instructive exhibits on painters' canvases and pigments. The Museum has free workshops on engraving techniques and 'painting like Rembrandt'. I am disappointed that I can't stay and participate in ...
