“lovely and comfortable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We stayed in The Vondelpark Suites (the east room) for 3 nights and it was really very pleasant! You can expect everything you see in the photos at its website. The room and the bathroom are clean, fully equipped kitchen and the breakfast is served directly in the room which is also super. Maybe if you are used to sleeping at a harder bed you will be suprised by soft mattress, but it is a small detail. It is a comfortable accommodation with friendly and family atmosphere in a calm street directly at the Vondelpark. Tram number 1 which goes through the centre of Amsterdam (about 5 stops/10minutes) is also very near (1-2 minutes). In a case you want to take a dinner outside few restaurants are also close. I would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Room Tip: The east room is very nice, spacious, with a nice view and with a small lovely balcony.

We stayed here for a long weekend. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped with en-suite bathroom. Generous breakfast and our host, Els, was friendly and very helpful. Central location with the vondel-park at the end of the street and tram stop at the other end of the street.

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.
