The Inntel Hotel Amsterdam Zaandam is a rare architectural gem

Is that a doll house? This is the Inntel Hotel Amsterdam Zaandam, one of the most unique luxury hotels in Holland. Located near the Zaanse Schans, this visual marvel boasts a façade that’s hard to miss – it has been designed by stacking about 70 traditional houses on top of each other.

A hotel that gives a revered nod to its neighborhood of north Zaandam, it offers modern hospitality amidst a picturesque traditional setting. The interiors of the rooms reflect the rich history of the Zaan area, its traditional products and the pioneers of local craft industries.

A stone’s throw are destinations worth visiting, from a canoe trip to visiting mills such as De Kat, which is the only paint mill in the world.
