Hospitality And Whimsy At Its Best

Dutch hospitality, imagination and a sense of history are reflected in this newly opened hotel in Zaandam, The Netherlands. Minutes from Amsterdam and with a direct train connection from the international airport of Schiphol, this hotel is ideally located for any meeting or event.

Inntel Hotels, founded in 1982 has a handful of properties around Amsterdam and Rotterdam, each modern with friendly service and a unique sense of design. We were drawn to their property in Zaandam, just minutes away from Amsterdam. Built to look like a group of stacked Dutch row houses, the hotel is striking and perhaps a little puzzling to look at. It offers 160 guest rooms and meeting facilities for up to 350 attendees.  The 4-star property is located next to the Zaandam train station and offers its own Tourist Information Office.


The Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Zaandam offers flexible meeting space. It supports small meetings to conferences with 300, and receptions for up to 350 guests. Meeting spaces are modern, with an industrial style finish, honoring the area’s manufacturing past. All meeting spaces are air-conditioned, have 10 feet + ceilings, offer complimentary WI-FI, and dedicated staff.  

The hotel offers meeting specials that include everything you need to host a successful meeting. Packages start at a 4-hour deal and go all the way up to a 32-hour package. Called the Saen Special, the 4-hour package include meeting room space, note paper and pens, use of flip-chart or whiteboard with markers, LCD projector with projection screen, office supplies, and unlimited coffee, tea and ice water.  Longer packages include intercontinental breakfast buffets, lunch buffets, 3-course dinners and overnight stays in a Taste Deluxe Room.


The hotel features 160 air conditioned rooms, and all of them are unique.  Rooms are modern and spacious with plush bathrooms and beds. Some rooms offer Montis sitting areas, extra-large beds, a whirlpool bath and private sauna. We especially like the large mural depicting the region's proud history and people.


The onsite restaurant Puur Saen presents seasonal meals made from local ingredients. The menu is friendly for an international clientele with options ranging from local to Italian, American, Mediterranean and Asian inspired dishes at reasonable prices.  For groups, the hotel has a unique offering of interactive dinner games to entertain guests.

The hotel offers a well-equipped Wellness Club with indoor swimming pool, Finnish sauna, Turkish steam bath and a Life Fitness Gym.  Massages are offered also.
