“Charm and Character”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I completely agree with my friend’s (Judy's) assessment of our most excellent stay at Park Mansion, much more comfortable than any hotel. She summed up our experience perfectly and Charles was the perfect host. It felt like home and a wonderful respite from the frenetic pace of Amsterdam. Can’t wait to go back just to relax in this thoughtful setting with Charles’ impeccable attention to detail and exquisite taste. Thanks, Charles, for making our stay personable and memorable!

My friend and I recently completed our "zillion year" reunion of our Junior Year abroad in Amsterdam as students. As very experienced travelers we were looking for a place to stay that would be esthetically pleasing, unique to the culture in Amsterdam, filled with charm, great location, functional, and clean. We felt we didn't need to stay in an expensive hotel to accomplish our goals.
We found Park Mansion on the Internet. Everything that is written about it and all the reviews from other guests that have stayed here are absolutely true. Charles went out of his way to accommodate our needs and answer all of our questions.
Every morning he would deliver fresh baked goods, our refrigerator that was thoughtfully stocked with a variety of top quality foods and beverages. Our laundry was done with no extra charge.
We loved all of his antiques and the light that shined in throughout. After a busy day of walking and biking around town we looked forward to return to our comfortable “home” at night to unwind.
The day of our departure Charles made sure our car was arranged. Even though my flight was very early in the morning there was a nice note waiting for me and freshly baked bread by our front door.
I would highly recommend the Park Mansion. My friend and I look forward to returning soon and it won’t be in a “zillion years.”

There aren’t enough words to describe the amazing time we had at Charles apartment. From the moment we walked into the huge apartment filled with art, antiques and flowers to the glass of wine he offered me while he showed us around our ‘home away from home’ and the fridge that made my eyes pop out filled with fruit, cheeses, pates, cold meats, beer, salmon etc What I will miss most is Charles' postcards popped under the door wishing me good morning, is there anything else he can do for me and oh he’s popped a home made apple pie and warm croissants outside the door. I would recommend a stay at Charles for anyone who wants to be pampered. We will be back. Thanks Charles.

Doesn't get any better than this. Amsterdam is a great place to visit and this apartment will exceed all of your expectations. Charles the owner offers a service second to none. 10 out of10. Like all the reviews previous it all seems to good to be true, but it is. We will definetly return to Park Mansion next time we visit Amsterdam ...

Charles the host was more like a good friend to us during our stay and could not do enough for us he and his brother made us feel so welcome and kept our pantry stocked the whole time the shower facilities,beds,and all surrounds exceeded our expectations. We would recommend to anyone wanting value for money personal service and somewhere central to everything including the holland casino, vondelpark, various art and culture musiems and transport to spend some time with Charles at Park Mansion you will not be dissapointed

Room Tip: we stayed in two different apartments both great for different reasons but im sure they would all be...

We spent 5 nights at the Park Mansion Apartment in early June and can only second the comments made inprevious reviews.
It is a wonderful (superior) alternative to a hotel. It is a large, beautifully decorated apartment facing directly onto the Vondelspark, very near to the Museum district and the upscale shops on PC Hooftstraat. The location is very close to everything, yet quiet and a wonderful place to recharge and relax after a day spent exploring the city. Charles is a welcoming host, and really nothing seemed to be too much trouble. He appeared completely focussed on making on our stay as easy and enjoyable as possible, whether this was arranging for ironing or laundry on a daily basis (no charge), delivering fresh croissants every morning, offering advice about restaurants or activities, or arranging our train tickets. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Park Mansion to any visitor to Amsterdam.

We (Young Couple) stayed here in May 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Charles, the host, accomodated our every need. He was able to offer good advice on the best places to visit in Amsterdam, and the most interesting things to do, which is extremely helpful if you are am Amsterdam novice.

The food provided was very varied and provided an excellent "taste of Amsterdam". The Champagne was a nice touch. Various breads were provided every morning, as were cakes on other occasions throughout the day - the Cheesecake was very nice!!

The apartment is very large, particularly the living area, with a view over the Vondelpark - Leidesplen and PC Hooftstraat are also on the doorstep. Perfect base for exploring the city.

Would definitely stay here again in future.
