“Well looked after!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Thank you Martijne and Bernard for excellent service and delicious Dutch breakfasts. We stayed in the Park Room for 3 nights. The room was tastefully decorated and it was lovely to have breakfast served at our own table in the bedroom. We were a little disappointed that the windows couldn't be opened - Bernard explained that due to the room being on the ground flood and adjacent to the road, the windows had to be sealed for safety/security. The location was great; outside of the city centre but convenient for the tram and next to a beautiful park. Martijne and Bernard catered for all of our needs including early check-in and storing our luggage after we checked out on the last day.

Room Tip: Park room is lovely, large and clean, and it's cheaper than the Garden Room. See previous commen...

The Parkzijde Bed & Breakfast was an excellent find. We looked at all the reviews and booked the Garden Room over a year ago. We spent 3 fantastic nights in beautiful Amsterdam. Martijne and Bernard made our stay very enjoyable. We arrived very early in Amsterdam and our room was not ready yet. They allowed us to leave our luggage there and gave us suggestions on where to find a good cup of coffee and breakfast. Bernard suggested other sights and places to visit until our room was ready. The "Market" was a very nice place to visit.

Our room was in the Garden Room. The pictures of the Garden Room do not do it justice. The room is very spacious, very clean and the bed was comfortable. The conservatory where we ate breakfast every day was amazing. You can open the windows and sky lights and enjoy the cool morning air while you enjoy a huge breakfast.

Breakfast each morning was enough to feed us for lunch as well. It was great having the facilities to heat some food up that we had brought back with us.

Martijne had 72 hour GVB tickets available. GVB operates the metro, tram and most of the bus network in Amsterdam. This is great deal. You get unlimited access to all CVB transits. The tram stops is walking distance from the B&B which enabled us to get into the city easily.

We are planning another trip in Nov 2014 and will be certainly returning to this B & B and looking forward visiting with Martijne and Bernard again.

I stayed in the Garden Room, just for 2 nights, although I wish I could have stayed longer. The room was wonderful (It was big, had everything I needed and more, and was super cozy/comfortable/gezellig), the owners were wonderful , the breakfast was wonderful, and the location was wonderful. It was all very relaxing, and I could walk all around the park or to some nice restaurants, etc. all within a few minutes, and it's just beautiful. It's also quiet in this area, so I slept very well with the windows open. (The modern air conditioning and heating options were great, but I didn't need them.)
I will definitely be staying here on every future trip to Amsterdam.

My husband picked this for our honeymoon and I couldn't have picked a better place. It was so amazing that years later, I still get heartsick thinking how much I want to go back. (It was actually late March/early April 2008.) We stayed in the Garden Room and it was just lovely. From the daily breakfasts, to the amazing room, the outside graden accessible from our room, the owners, and the location... I wouldn't have changed a thing except a longer stay than our seven nights. I will always remember it and yearn to go back, ASAP!

A great home from home b&b, we was treated like royalty, everything done for us, nothing was to much for the owners, easy access to all routes, food places near by very good, they have a tip book on where to go to eat/visit that other guests have put quotes in a great help, Bernard waited for us as our plane was delayed and informed us on everything about the Parkzijde and even got us something to eat, you can use the no 9 tram into Amsterdam central or the 3 or 7 to different parts you want to go, we got a bus ticket 21.00 euro and it did 4 days and well worth it, if we didn't we would of paid about 80.00 euro on tram and buss fares, Highly Highly recommended and thank you both of you very much xxxx

Room Tip: All in this accommodation are great value and service

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

What a wonderful place this is.We were so pleased with our room.It was modern yet totally unique in style and decor.It was light and spacious,with a sofa,chair and storage space.It was very clean and the bedding was immaculate.The breakfast was plentiful with a lot of choice.There was a fridge,kettle and coffee machine with free tea,coffee and fruit juice.The bathroom was fantastic,with a strong shower and a very deep bath, strong hairdryer and plenty of storage space there, too.The owners were so nice and chatty,very nice artistic people.
We purchased a peice of Martijne's art work to take home.
There were plenty of guide books in different languages and a Tv if you were really bored.
The conservatory and garden with a pond were relaxing calming areas.We had a very chilled stay and would return.
It was all positive.The park opposite is nice for a stroll or a jog round.The tram stops minutes away from the Bed and Breakfast and is very frequent.
The house is located in what we would describe as a suburb,but with easy travel to most of the tourist places.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Garden room for peace and tranquility,and the use of a small beautiful garden.
