1. Van der Valk Hotel Dordrecht
The first hotel in our list of family-friendly hotels in Dordrecht is the van der Valk Hotel Dordrecht. We personally are very fans of van der Valk hotels though, because the times we have slept there it is always good and we find the hotels very family-friendly. The hotel is located slightly outside the center of Dordrecht near the highway. You can park your car in front of the hotel for free.
This family hotel in Dordrecht has very nice and luxurious family rooms for families with kids. This family room is a whopping 65m2 and has four single beds, which are intended for the four family members. In addition, the room has a spacious and luxurious bathroom with a bathtub. We ourselves always find this a big perk of a room, but that’s because our daughter also loves to bathe.
Also located at the hotel is a spacious indoor pool with a sauna. Along the side of the pool are several beds where parents can read a book while the kids are playing in the pool. The hotel also has a restaurant, where you can go for snacks and drinks three times a day. In summer, you can sit outside on the sun terrace. We have now eaten at several van der Valk restaurants as well as breakfast and this is actually always very good.

2. Stayokay Hostel Dordrecht – National Park De Biesbosch
The second accommodation in our list of family-friendly hotels in Dordrecht is not a hotel, but a hostel. This is also where we spent the night with the family ourselves. This hostel is practically next to the climbing forest of Dordrecht where we climbed and from the hostel you can also explore nature reserve the Biesbosch.
We always do like the atmosphere of a hostel, and especially with kids, a loose atmosphere is ideal. Furthermore, there is plenty to do around the hostel and kids have the space to let off steam. For example, a playground can be found outside near the hostel. Another advantage is that you can park your car at the door for free.
The hostel also rents canoes that you can use to explore the nature reserve. Of course, we too rented a canoe from the company Drijf for a few hours and explored the area that way. In addition, there is plenty for kids to do in the area. For example, on Sunday mornings we walk in 15 minutes to Biesboschcentrum Dordrecht, where the Dordrecht climbing forest is also located. This is also definitely a fun forest to spend a few hours climbing with the family.
Also, near the hostel you have a beach and several playgrounds for the kids. Because of this, you can have a great time in the area around the hostel for an entire weekend without having to go out by car. In the afternoon, we also had drinks outside at the hostel while our daughter was playing in the playground.
In the morning we also took advantage of the breakfast served by the hostel. This breakfast was very extensive and definitely recommended if you are staying at this hostel with the family. You can rent excellent cottages here in the middle of nature with the family. For more information about the Stayokay Hostel Dordrecht, take a look here.
