“Best place to stay in Amsterdam!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We stayed at the Vondel View B&B for four nights in June; a middle-aged couple with our 20-year old daughter. We booked the suite which is very large and exceptionally decorated and has more amenities that one could find in hotels or other B&Bs. Rita was so nice and welcoming! She gave us many tips and her breakfasts were fabulous. The B&B is in one of the beautiful townhouses right of the Vondel Park, very quiet and convenient; in my opinion the best area to stay in Amsterdam. It was our first stay at Vondel View but we were all three very, very happy we picked it based on the other reviews on Tripadvisor. We would definitely love to go back!

My husband and I stayed at the Vondel View B&B for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon. We loved it! Rita is a wonderful hostess. We stayed in the B&B Suite, which was spacious and clean. There was a safe, a mini-fridge, a hairdryer, and an iron/ironing board located in the room, all of which were very convenient to have. Rita served delicious breakfasts each morning - there was so much food! She also gave great restaurant recommendations and was so helpful during our stay.

The B&B is located right off of Vondel Park, which is a beautiful park. It is an easy walk from the B&B to the museums or to the Jordaan, but it is also conveniently located near a tram stop so you can easily get to the train station. When we go back to Amsterdam, we definitely plan to stay here!

Room Tip: The B&B Suite is on the first floor and you do not have to climb stairs to reach it. The sittin...

We were two persons staying at this Bed and breakfast. The owner, Rita made our visit in Amsterdam very comfortable. She gave us valuable tips and was a lovely woman.

The room (flower room) was amazing, especially the bathroom. Breakfast was great, we stayed their for 5 nights and every breakfast was different. She even made pancakes and poffertjes specielly for me because she knew that I loved them. Rita gave everything to give us a memorable visit.

Vondelviews location is tight next to Vondelpark and also have a great location to tram number 1. It's around a 15 minutes walk to the absolute center of the city and close to Museumplein as well.

We would recommend everyone to make a resevertion at this place.

We had a wonderfull time in B&B Vondelview. Rita is so generous and kind, she is a perfect host! We booked the flowerroom. Both the room and bathroom were very clean and beautiful. The B&B is located in a very good neighbourhood (close to the musea and the vondelpark is just around the corner). The accessibility by public transport to all major tourist attractions and the train station is very good. We couldn't have had a better place to stay!

We're a mature couple who enjoyed five days in Amsterdam thanks to this excellent B&b. It's steps from both the beautiful Vondelpark and the main tram line to the museum and canal districts. We also enjoyed some great dining, bars and shopping in the neighborhood. And delicious, private, breakfasts too! In summary, Vondelview is convenient to the Amsterdam's sights and delights, as well as an elegant and quiet oasis in a busy city.

The Vondel View B&B is my first choice when I'm looking for a place to stay in Amsterdam. I have just returned for the third time, and was very happy I did. Rita is an excellent host who delights in having visitors from all over the world. She is efficient in answering any questions you might have before your stay, and very supportive with practical information when you arrive. Her breakfasts are generous and beautifully presented, and the rooms (I have stayed in both) are spotless and comfortable. The museum district location is perfect - the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk are within an easy 10 minute walk (less if you cut through the lovely Vondelpark at the end of the street). There are many eating places to choose from along Overtoom - Texmex, Indian, Dutch, and Indonesian - and of course cafes and bars too. The trams are very close by and take you into the city centre in about 7 minutes. The location puts you in easy reach of all places of interest in Amsterdam itself by linking with other tramlines at several points, and day trips beyond Amsterdam starting from Centraal Station are comfortably achievable. It's a very straightforward tram journey from Centraal Station to the B&B if you don't want to take a taxi from the airport when you arrive. Once you have the route figured out on the tram, walking into the city centre is an enjoyable alternative. And after a busy day walking, sightseeing, and checking out Amsterdam's wonderful museums, it is a real pleasure to return to the peace and quiet of this tranquil B&B.

Room Tip: If you have mobility issues, choose the downstairs suite.

Very good breakfasts and extremely comfortable and clean room in a handsome town house set back from the busy street; with lots of light in the afternoon. Right next to the park and near museums. And very helpful and pleasant service - I liked the proprietrix - no trouble ordering us a taxi to the airport. I would only say that our room had a rather steep stairway and if you are not sure-footed ask for the ground floor room.

Room Tip: Careful if you find steep stairs a problem.
