This incredible-looking hotel is twelve stories high and looks as if a giant has taken a number of the green-painted cottages typical of the Zaan region and mashed them together. One blue house stands out in the mix – it is a reference to Monet’s painting “The Blue House” completed in Zaandam in 1871. The inspiration behind the project was the concept that the hotel is your temporary home. Located in the newly-revamped Zaandam district in Amsterdam, when you stay here you will be only a short train ride from Amsterdam’s city center. The area is a well-known day trip for tourists and is famous for its windmills and quiet streets. The historic streets and waterways are being restored to bring back some of the old style living and the Inntel Hotel fits right into this plan. Your room is decorated in a modern way but with traditional accents and vintage photographs. Some have a rain shower and whirlpool tub, all have wifi.
