We recently got back from a lovely trip in Amsterdam with our family. My boyfriend, his Dad, my grandma and I all stayed at Hotel Zandbergen for nine nights. Originally we were planning to stay in Amsterdam for only four nights and the rest was going to be in Germany so we could enjoy the Christmas Markets. Well, on the second night we asked Hank if we could move to a lower floor because the steep stairs were very difficult for my grandma (no elevators). Hank gave us an offer we couldn't refuse. He showed us an apartment that was two stories and approximately 1600 sq. ft. This place was amazing! We loved the apartment so much that we extended our stay five more days. Instead of staying in Germany, Hank suggested we rent a car (gave us all of the information and prices) and take a drive to Germany for the day. That's just what we did. The rental car ended up being much less than train tickets and the drive was beautiful. Hank also suggested Brugge, Belgium so we visited there one day. Those two days were probably the best two days that we had the entire trip.
Additional Info: The breakfast consists of cold cuts, delicious fresh croissants and hard rolls, juice, cereal, fruit, coffee and tea. If is included with the price of the hotel. Whenever we were looking for something to do Hank was always offering terrific suggestions. He helped us with a car rental, with the parking, tram information, with where to visit in the city as well as outside of the city. Without Hank, we would have missed several wonderful places.
Overall we truly enjoyed our vacation thanks to Hank. The day we left he brought my grandma and I Holland shoe ornaments and even emailed us the next day and thanked us. If you enjoy exceptional service and a great location, choose Hotel Zandbergen.
Hope this helps!
