It is funny how our holiday, the time of the year where we hope to find some peace of mind, can be quite stressful when it comes to actually planning it. Where to go? Which hotel to book? Where to find the local hotspots? The same goes for a business trip mixed with pleasure. “With easyHotel we offer a helping hand to make every part of our guests’ business trip or vacation as easy and enjoyable as it should be,” Lucas Drewes, hotel CEO explains.
Sleeping at high altitude and able to see the whole city when you open your curtains. The youngest establishment of easyHotel realised this for all her guests, both leisure guests and business guests. Today opens easyHotel Amsterdam Zaandam, which is located in the city centre of Zaandam. The train station is within walking distance and the hotel is close to the popular tourist attractions of Amsterdam. With only 12 minutes of travel time it is easy to get to Amsterdam Centraal station. DanZep Hotels, the franchisor of easyHotel Benelux, started past year with the realisation of hotel rooms in the Zaanse Saentower. Together, easyHotel Benelux has six hotels with a total of 630 hotel rooms.
The new establishment of the popular hotel label is located in the Saentower. The Saentower is the former head office of Ahold. EasyHotel has chosen this location due to the great diversity of businesses in the area and the “hotelstop” in the city centre of Amsterdam. Besides that, the number of tourists in the Zaanstreek continues to grow considerably. The hotel, built at 30 meters altitude, offers a great view at the whole city. The travel time to the city centre of Amsterdam is less than 15 minutes and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is only 8 minutes away. During rush hour the train runs up to 8 times an hour and in the evenings about 4 times an hour.
DanZep is convinced of the success of easyHotel Amsterdam Zaandam. The hotel is located in a historic city with the Zaanse Schans en the Zaans museum close by. Recreational park “Het Twiske” is during summer a perfect spot to relax and there are festivals on a regular base. Beside that Zaandam is real close to Amsterdam: the #1 of “”most visited cities in the Netherlands.”
All rooms are situated on the 9th, 10th and 11th floor of the Saentower and have their own en-suite bathroom. Free WiFi is available. The superior rooms have a safe for a laptop, cable internet and extra space. EasyHotel is an expert in the case of optimal use of spaces and surprises her guests with modern storage options and the layout of rooms. The hotel has several agreements with cafés and restaurants in the area. EasyHotel finds it important that guests have a total city experience. Rooms are available from €49,- a room.
