Corendon Village Hotel Amsterdam The Largest Hotel in the Benelux

We stayed at Corendon Village Hotel Amsterdam for a week last Summer in July. There was so much to do and we loved our stay so much that we returned for a week in August. Most restrictions were lifted, however a few were still in place in July and August. So the hotel was not in full practice, but we could try out most of the facilities.  

This is not a sponsored post, we stayed here at our own expense. So all opinions are, as always, our own.

During our stays we had the Apartment Twin with sofa bed in the Apartments building. Which is really a spacious apartment. We had plenty of room even with the sofa bed permanently pulled out. The hotel is in a business area, so the view was on business properties the first time, the second time on the Plaza building.
