“Nice, cosy apartment in a lovely location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

We stayed at the Vondelpark Suites for 3 nights in April 2012, 2 adults and 1 child. There was plenty of room - the suite has very high ceilings with 2 twin beds pushed together and a futon couch that turns into a bed. Also there is a small TV, eating table with chairs, a kitchenette with everything including cooktop, microwave, mini-fridge and sink. Coffee maker and hot water pot are also provided. The bathroom has a nice shower, plenty of towels and hairdryer. This was a great location - VERY close to the tram stop and if you want to walk - the park is steps away and makes for a beautiful stroll into the city. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and yummy chocolate marshmallow treats.

A couple notes about the apartment - the stairs to the 2nd floor where the apartment is located are VERY steep and narrow, a bit shocking at first. (Els, the proprietor carried our massive suitcase up for us, I felt horrible for her lugging it up those stairs!) I would also suggest to bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper - there are tenants that live upstairs on the 3rd floor that can be heard and because the windows are so large, there is a lot of street noise that filters through.

There really is no parking, and the street is one way - to a dead end. There is only one way in, and you must reverse the car out of the street onto the main road to get out. Tricky.... We parked our car at a public lot about 10 minutes away. We opted to not have breakfast included - there is a nice bakery right across the street. 2 blocks away is the grocery store and there are numerous little eateries in the area. Els had a nice selection of English movies on DVD, which was great for our daughter - age 3 - she watched Ratatouille numerous times.

This was a great place for the price and I would highly recommend the suites to a couple, or a small family.

We've spent 5 days with two kids; Our host Els was helpful with tips from the very beggining (as we came from Eindhoven airport) so after taking tram 1 at Central station (needed approx. 15 min.) to get to this nice, petit, quiet street few steps from Vondel park. East room is comfortable, well equipped small kitchen, (fridge, coffee maker, etc.) clean bath ( plenty of towels for all of us) lots of maps & useful tourists books. Breakfast was definitely "worth buying" delivered tp your door, fresh orange juice+ fruits, musli, milk, hot croissants, cheese, butter, ham, salamy & each day just a little different. Half an hour walk passing through Vondel park gets you to the heart of the city. Our kids enjoyed too

We really enjoyed our stay at The Vondelpark Suites. We were there with a group of four friends so we had the place to our selves. Els is an amazing host, very helpful and informative. The en-suite rooms are very clean and comfortable. Large variety of food for breakfast is available. There are lots of books & maps for guests to use. Location is good with tram (number 1)stops outside and Vondelpark. There is also free Wi-Fi which worked very well.
Would definitely recommend this place.
If you are taking taxi from airport to get there, cost should be approx 35 Euros and make sure the meter is on. (We had been overcharged)

Located in a very quiet side street, right by the Vodel Park, and very good tram service to the centre (also walking distance to central Amsterdam - about 20 minutes walk).

The room was comfortable, good sized and decently furnished, with a small kitchen and very clean bathroom, well-appointed if a bit small.
The breakfast was good (very fresh rolls/croissants, yoghurts, fruit, cheese & ham) and our own espresso-style coffee machine in the kitchen so we could keep any left-over breakfast for a snack later with fresh coffee!
The only (slight) criticism is that the furniture is somewhat basic and the television could do with up-dating.

I highly recommend Vondelpark Suites. The location is perfect, not too far from the center of things but quiet and not in the midst of the hubbub. The tram number 1, half a block away, takes you in just a few minutes to the heart of the city. The park itself, half a block away, is lovely, with ponds and little lakes. The room was really nice, decorated with cool little touches and exotic objects, and it has kitchen facilities too. The owner is very friendly and hospitable.

Located on a quiet street at the entrance to Vondelpark. There are two rooms to choose from. I took both for my wife and myself and our two adult sons. Comfortable,completely equipped and twice the size of your average hotel room. Every morning Ms.Sprangers brings a complete breakfast of juice,yogurt,bread,cold meat,cheese and cereal. The park is 5 minutes away and well worth a stroll. At the corner of the street is the Number1 tram which gets you to Dam square in 15 minutes. AH market is just a short walk from the hotel
Stay here if you visit Amsterdam,you will be very pleased

We stayed in the Suites for 2 nights in May during the wonderful tulip festival. The location, the service from owner was wonderful. She accommodated my gluten free needs for breakfast (which was excellent) & helped us with directions and any information that was needed. If you have issues with stairs then this is not the place for you, but other then that the room was clean and well suited our needs. The Tram was very close and we walked to several museums with no issues. You can't beat the price on this B&B in this exciting city!
