Seeing how highly recommended this was on Tripadvisor, I thought I had to try it out for myself. Bernard greeted me on my arrival taking great care to inform me about Parkzijde, and everything that was available during the stay. Nothing had been left out from the facilities in the room, to the book/dvd selection, use of the microwave/extra crockery & the use of the laptop wireless internet access too.
The room was spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated. Nice comfy bed and cozy ensuite bathroom. There was a small conservatory at the rear of the room, where Bernard brought my breakfast each morning. Plenty of selection too :)
The room is down a few steps into the basement/cellar area. This was ideal if you require privacy and a quiet night's sleep.
The B & B is roughly halfway along Oosterpark and situated opposite Oosterpark itself. I used the No 9 Tram to get from Central Station and get off closeby at the Wijttenbachstraat stop. Then a short walk to the B & B
Worth a stay.....recommended
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You find Parkzijde in front of the beautiful Oosterpark, just outside the busy city-center. The elegant house (1892) still remains conserved in its original style. The “Goede Kamer” (“good room”), where former residents used to welcome their guests, has a high decorated ceiling and marble chimney. The room at ground floor has a view of the park. The Garden room is located at the rear of the house and has access to its own conservatory, overlooking our garden. ... more less
