An architectural mashup of traditional houses, the 160-room Inntel Zaandam in the Netherlands looks as though it comes straight out of a fairytale.
The iconic green wooden houses of the Zaan region were the fount of inspiration for the hotel’s designer, Wilfried van Winden (WAM architecten, Delft).
The newly opened Hotel Zaandam also includes a swimming pool, wellness center, Turkish baths and a restaurant-bar in the 11-storey structure.
The hotel is situated in Zaandam in North Holland, just outside of the Dutch capital Amsterdam.
