“Wonderful service. Huge bed. Sunken bath. Cute cat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2011

We booked this at extremely short notice (the night before!) and Rita could not have been more welcoming. It was our honeymoon and she attended to every detail down to roses on our arrival and even a wedding gift on departure! Breakfast was varied and filling and best of all, delivered to our door each morning.
We stayed in the 'Flower Room' and it was exactly as it appeared in the photos on the website; stylishly furnished with a very comfy bed. There is no TV in the room but there is free wireless internet access. The luxurious bathroom with sunken bath was perfect for a romantic soak.
If you like cats, then Koos, the extremely friendly ginger tom, is an added bonus.

I have been going to Holland since 1987. I have stayed in many bed and breakfasts as well as small hotels. Vondel View is now my absolute favorite and I will only stay there. The room and bathroom were well designed and very clean. The breakfast was excellent. I felt like I was in the home of family or friends. The bed was comfortable and linens considered and lush. The owner takes great pride in her business and pays strict attention to the details. She provides guidance if needed and support if there are any problems (I lost my cellphone and she assisted in tracking it down and arranging delivery). It is a fantastic location along side Vondel Park. I would recommend this place to anyone who values excellent lodging during travel.

Very much enjoyed my stay at this pleasant B&B. Well run, efficient, respectful of privacy, in a good location for getting around the city. I hope to return some day.

We really enjoyed our stay in the suite. The room was large with a separate living room. The owner, Rita is so helpful and sweet. She even served us breakfast in our rooms! The b&b is a close walk to the tram and the museum area, in a residential area, so it wa nice to have a place that was quiet to sleep while being closely to many attractions.

We were so happy to find this amazing B&B in Amsterdam. The room was amazing.... incredibly clean, beautifully furnished, lots of space (a rare commodity in Amsterdam) and incredibly cosy. The bed was super comfortable, and the lighting and accessories just perfect. The bathroom was also fantastic... big and light with lots of space and a bathtub! The breakfast was great - lots of selection and served in your room at an agreed time (or discreetly left outside your door, in the case of late new year's celebrations). The location, for us, was perfect - just outside the neon-lit tourist hell, but with a great tram service virtually outside the door, and lots to see and do nearby (great restaurants and shops). However, the main advantage of staying here is the owner, Rita - she is the example of what all B&B owners should be like - she was incredibly warm and welcoming, very easy to talk to, gave us some great advice on every subject from restaurants to Dutch films, always seemed to appear whenever we needed something but was otherwise completely unobtrusive. We loved this place, and will definitely be staying here when we come to Amsterdam again!!

This B&B is a good deal in pricey Amsterdam. Just be aware it is away from the main tourist areas, but is still a short tram ride away form where you need to be. Unfortunately, we came during some horrible winter weather and had to lug our suitcases across snow to fin the B&B. Rita was a friendly, smiling face after our train ride from Germany. She helped us with our heavy bags (we are typical American girls and pack too much) and gave us tips on what to do in the city. We liked the location; however if you have only a short time in the city, you might want to plan a detailed itinerary and not wander aimlessly like we did. Also, the bathroom is beautiful but there is a big window right where you shower which was a bit uncomfortable. Even with the screen/shade on it - it feels like people can see you. Other than that the hostess was gracious and breakfast was delicious,.
