1.23km from Willem Blaeu CollegeWe arrived in Alkmaar not really knowing what to expect other than it being a rather small picturesque city ,37km north of Amsterdam. I booked a 3 night stay in the Amrath Hotel as part of a package included on the Expedia site, and found that it was within walking distance (7minutes), from the Alkmaar station which was extremely convenient as we were carrying baggage and so didn’t need to hail for a taxi. On arrival we were met by an extremely helpful young lady at the reception desk who was able to advise us on some the highlights we could expect to find in the town as well as issuing me with pocket map that she circled in biro to show our proximity from some of the major sites. Our room was on the fourth floor which was easily accessible via the lift in the main hall next to reception. The room was terrific & very spacious, it included a jacuzzi bath, large outdoor area, as well as a big sofa and two enormous flat screen TVs plus the bed was lovely and comfortable. I think it must have been a fairly quiet period (cheese festival later on in March)-as didn’t notice many other guests, but I’m sure it gets busier towards the summer months. All in all I thought it was one of cleanest and friendliest hotels I’ve stayed in, with great access to the old town and train station. Would thoroughly recommend staying at the Amrath Hotel if you’re visiting Alkmaar for a few days.
