Art hotel Spaander Volendam Reviews
great location and the hotel is a sight itself May 12, 2015
This former Best Western Hotel is located in the touristic centre of the typical Dutch village Volendam. It's just a minute walk to the harbour, the bars and restaurants.
Interior bar and restaurant
When you enter the hotel by the restaurant you may think that you walked into a museum. The place is loaded with paintings of Volendam scenes and traditional clothed people, this continues in the corridors, the lobby and in the rooms. The breakfastroom has a great grandeur although my friends thought it was old-fashioned
Drinks and food
The bar is located in a very big lobby with sofa's and isn't a cozy place to have a drink.
The food is good and of course they have a big choice of fresh fish.
We had a great big room with a nice balcony and view at the Marker-lake.
this review is based on my stay in january 2014
At this time there is an tv program on the Dutch television about this hotel (the reason that i thought of writing a review of this hotel)
The tv program is called "Herrie in Hotel Spaander" translated it's something like "fuss in Hotel Spaander".
You can compare it with Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen only in this case it's about a good hotel that would like to raise to a higher level. The hotel get's help from a famous dutch television chef and a succesfull hotel entrepreneur. In the program they showed that some of the older and smaller rooms are improved and the the kitchenstaff learned a lot from the masterchef.
So after i saw a few episodes i'm thinking of visiting Volendam and this hotel again.
It would recommend it anyway but after seeing the show i would do it for sure.
