“Frederik Park House - you made my (our) day(s)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2010

We stayed at Frederik Park House three nights during Palm Sunday weekend, and we can only confirm all the good reviews we read before we arrived. We were met by the extraordinary nice Martin, humoristic, knowledgeable, welcoming us, giving us a lot of information from the start, followed up every morning before we set out exploring this fantastic city, tips to small museums, nice areas, shops, pubs, cafés, restaurants etc., etc. Martin is a true professional, personal, but not private.
There are only four rooms in Frederik Park House. We had the smallest one I think, the Library, but it had all we could wish for. A good bed, bathroom and a separate wc. And some humoristic details. Go and see for yourselves!
Breakfast-tray outside the room every morning, full of good stuff - got us going for hours.
Small chocolate Easter eggs on Palm Sunday - things like that make the hotel something special. Got a glimpse of the other owner, Franz, bringing out the trays! Thank you, Franz.
The surrounding area, the old city with the small park Frederik Plein and the shopping- and restaurantstreet Utrechtstrasse, has so much to offer you don't have to leave the area!
The pub on the corner is what we would think a typical Dutch pub. The third time we got there for our daily (some days twice a day) genever, we were treated like patrons. Very nice. The coffee shop around the corner can also be recommened. Very good coffee and cakes, and a nice interior. On the second floor we found our favourite table, overlooking first floor and the street.
Don't miss the small French restaurant just to the right leaving the House, Bouchon du Centre. In one room, about 40m2, Hanneke (with a French grandmother) , runs the whole, setting up menys, cooking (delicious), serving, entertaining. I am sorry we only had one dinner there. The next day she was fully booked, then closed. Open only from Wednesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner. Eating there was an adventure. People coming in were locals we think, and, as we could see, very fond of Hanneke. We felt like we were participating in a feel-good-movie. See her homepage at www.bouchonducentreamsterdam.com
All in all, Amsterdam is a fabolous city, and Frederik Park House is the best place to stay.

Frederik Park House greatly exceeded our high expectations. Our room (#301) was spacious, immaculate, bright, comfortable, with a terrific bed and shower. Martin, the owner, is a phenomenal host. Every morning, he delivered the most perfect breakfasts to our door (eggs, meats, cheeses, assorted breads, yogurt, coffee with warm milk, among other things). He was extremely generous with local advice and excellent recommendations. The location of this hotel cannot be beat; super convenient, but feels authentic and local. Steps away from a beautiful canal and park scene. Could not recommend this bed and breakfast with more enthusiasm; no need to look further.

We have just returned from a fantastic stay in Amsterdam. Frederik Park House hotel is excellent for a short weekend break. They provide perfect service. We got really good advices for restaurants, places to see, boat trips to take and above all was the facilities of the hotel. If you are used to standard 5 star hotel service, this is not the place, but if you look for something authentic and special for the city, then this is the pace for you. The rooms are of good size and nicely decorated ( a combination of antique furniture and modern facilities ). Breakfast is brought in a tray to your room. The choice of food was excellent even for me- vegetarian.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone. It is worth every Eur you pay for your stay.

We (couple from London) stayed in Frederick Park House a long weekend and really recommend it.

Frederik Park House is in a good location, its not on a canal but just round the corner from the nicest ones. It's on a small park which has a tram stop and taxi rank. It is next to a street with great restaurants. It's only a 5 minute walk to the museums. It is a beautiful house, really nicely decorated, done with great taste and sophistication.

It is run by friendly helpful hosts who make the effort to talk to you each day to give you advice and ask how your day was. Frederick Park House had a really peaceful atmosphere because there are only 3 rooms it feels like being in your own house. Breakfast is included in the price and very generous. (and very delicious) It nice to have it delivered to your room each morning makes it feel really homely and not impersonal like staying in a hotel.

Don't hesitate - you will have a great time.

I just came back from a wonderful stay at Frederik Park House and I know that I will be coming back to this B&B!
The owners, Martin and Franz, are the perfect hosts and have the most helpful tips. The room was beautiful, comfortable and spacious. The breakfast, which was discreetly placed right outside our door every morning, was rich, tasty and exactly what you need to start the day.
I stayed at the B&B with my two sisters and I'm sure they'll agree with me: we had a marvelous time in Amsterdam and our choice of B&B was one of the main reasons. Absolutely perfect. Make your reservation now!

I spent 5 very pleasant nights at Frederik Park House, using it as a base to explore Holland. This is more of a bed and breakfast than a full service hotel. It's located in a large house in a quiet neighborhood that faces onto a park. The owners live on the ground and first floors and rent the rooms on the upper floors. Breakfast is served in your room each morning and was ample enough to keep me going the whole day. The location was perfect: outside the hustle, bustle, and filth of the city center, but close enough to be within easy walking distance of all the major attractions. But if you are too tired to walk, the number 4 tram stops right outside the hotel, where there is also a taxi stand. My room was clean and quiet and the owners were very nice and helped suggest places to visit during my stay. There are several excellent restaurants and pubs around the corner along Utrechtsestraat. Rembrandtplein is also within a 10-minute walk. Good, affordable accommodations are not easy to find in Amsterdam, and I would definitely stay here again. The hotel website is at http://www.frederikparkhouse.com/.

  • Liked — Excellent location, quiet.
  • Disliked — Poor water pressure in bathroom sink, spotty wi-fi access.

We have stayed in several types of Amsterdam accomodation in the past & have to say that the Frederik Park House has been by far the best.
As described in information, Frederik Park House is ideally located & in a quite area, but within easy access to very nice restaurants, cafes/bars, shops & attractions.The rooms/suites are tastefuIly decorated & furnished to a high standard.
The hosts are very welcoming & helpful, whilst also being very professional in the way that they run their business.
We would highly recommend the Frederik Park House & hope that we will enjoy it's comfort & hospitality again some time in the near future.
