“Wrong location and felt we were part of someone else's profit”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2011

The park nearby was wonderful but the facilities are not all they are cracked up to be. We were hoping for a romantic get away, this was far from it. Breakfast was also a rip off but we didn't have high expectations for that either.

Unfortunately someone else also calles him or herself Vondelpark Suites. Seeing that I do not recognize your name I fear you stayed in the other B&B. If you visit Amsterdam again I can assure you that with us you will find you get great value for money. To other travellers: We are not listed on bookings or Venere, try Avvie or the officila website. Sorry that you had a bad experience....

I was a member of a small group of friends that went to Amsterdam on the first week of our easter vacations (26 March to 2 April). After a long journey in planes and airports we just wanted to have "the place" where we could rest. Well the rooms are just great! Better than much hotels nearby, all the 6 of us were very happy and we just couldn´t wait to get the most out of the trip. One little detail is related to the beds, just AWSOME! It feels like you are laying on a fluffy cloud, specially after the cold felt outside. The host, Mrs Sprangers is very nice and gentle. She does the most delicious breakfasts, and she was very kind when she offered a cake for the birthday of one of us.
We all would, without any doubts, stay there again.

A lovely and spacious studio room with en suite shower room + lots of towels. We stayed with my young daughter. We had two double beds and there was plenty of space. DVDs, guidebooks, colouring books were available for our use. The room (garden side) was well laid out and furnished - mostly IKEA furnishings. Breakfasts were good. Although do ask for extra milk if you like milky coffee. There is a coffee machine in the kitchenette.

The curtains do not have black out lining but it did not affect our sleep too much.

I would definitely stay here again. Very close to Vondelpark and there is a tram into the centre which takes about 10 -15 mins.

Bike hire is about 2 tram stops away and is highly recommended. There is a supermarket and neighbourhood restaurants are close by.

This would make a very good base out of the general madness of Central Amsterdam. The park is literally seconds away.

The owner is very helpful and lives above and below the rooms with her teenage family.

We very much enjoyed our stay - much better value than a poky hotel room.

Stayed at Vondelpark Suites in mid-April on the last leg of a trip with my parents. Owned by Els Spranger, her directions were perfect and this was the easiest of our three hotels to find. She showed us to our room, up the steep flight of small stairs that Amsterdam is known for, and it was a wonderful surprise. The room was spacious with 2 double beds, table, kitchenette and large bathroom. It was like living in an IKEA display room, and as someone who is very fond of the store, I loved it. The bonus of having the kitchenette also helped us save money on our meals. Els brings you breakfast in the morning and it was a feast! Wonderful start to our day. At the end of the street is an opening to the park and its about a 15 minute walk to the museum district. I will definitely stay there again. Very affordable.
