“Cozy place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We did stay there for a longer weekend. It is a really clean and cozy place to stay. It is advised to really follow the instructions because it is not obvious to find. Do not trust the map in the mobile version of tripadvisor!
The tram is around the corner and takes you straight to the city. Nessie gave us awesome instructions on food places. It is as described in the booking pages, bath rooms are shared but its no stress at all plus absolutely like at home. Breakfast is served in the room and it is as yummy as it looks. We would definetely go there again because it is quiet to sleep and its more living area than party center.

We were extremely pleased with our recent vacation in Amsterdam. The Garden View B&B is clean, very comfortable, cute, and quiet. Nessie, our host, has literally thought of everything. We loved the care and detail put into the place that enhanced our experience (ie. clean towels, an abundance of bathroom products to use, fantastic coffee, slippers!). As the other reviews indicate, breakfast is great and quite a bit of food. The location is ideal, as we were just a short tram-ride away from the action in the heart of the city, but just far enough away to have a quiet, peaceful sleep and a relaxing morning. Will definitely return to Amsterdam and will stay here! Great value.

Beautifully clean, comfortable beds, quiet and peaceful yet close to transport in and out of the centre of the city, warm and a warm welcome from an justifiably house-proud hostess ["shoes off as you come in please"!], lovely breakfast with great coffee, it was an ideal base for a weekend in Amsterdam. I've really nothing to add to earlier postings, except to endorse most of what has been written.
I was there to meet up with my daughter who's studying in Amsterdam and to celebrate my mother-in-law's 94th birthday; the accommodation met with total approval from both ends of the age spectrum. It's close enough to the centre to enjoy the bustle and the night-life whilst being secluded and tranquil for sleep and lazy mornings.

Room Tip: Both very quiet and well appointed.

The location was ideal for a weekend away, being close to a Tram Stop. The room was spacious, and comfortable,and the breakfasts were very filling, and beautifully laid out on a tray. We even had a sandwich bag provided so we could make a sandwich for lunch. Nessie was welcoming and helpful, providing a map, and suggestions for cafes & restaurants, as well as ideas for days out. We liked the instructions she emailed so that we could find the apartment very easily, and we enjoyed the walk from the Station. We were even lucky with the weather!

We could not have been more pleased with the comfort of Garden View and the thoughtful, helpful approach of Nessie, our host. The room was delightful and clean and we enjoyed the enclosed garden courtyard below our balcony. The breakfasts were substantial and delicious right up to the take-away breakfast provided for our early-morning departure. On our first evening we walked to the Van Gogh Museum and in subsequent days used the nearby trams to explore further away in town. Nessie provided a great map and marked suggested restaurants and sites -- and the free museum pass was a super benefit! We'd definitely return to Garden View B 'n B on any future trip to Amsterdam.

My roommate and I decided to leave early for our study abroad in Kenya and vacation together in Amsterdam for four days. We stayed here and absolutely LOVED it! Nessie, the hostess, is a wonderful lady who can cook like no other! Breakfast is sprawling and delicious and the amenities are plenty, clean, and work well. The location could not be more perfect. Garden View is just outside the hustle and bustle of the heart of the city and is right near a tram stop. We adored our stay and Nessie was very helpful in planning our excursions and discussing our needs/likes/wants concerning our stay in Amsterdam. And to top it off - she even made us a travel breakfast and called a cab for us when we had an early flight and had to be out at 4:45 am!! I would highly highly recommend staying here - it was so affordable for the high quality experience that we got and I would definitely come here again, should I decide to come back to Amsterdam!

We stayed at Garden View B&B for one week in April. This is a small private place with two rooms and shared facilities. It's located on the South of the City, close to the Amsterdam-Zuid station, Vrije University and a large business area from one side and in walking distance to the Museum Quarter from another.
We never felt so much like at home in other places before. Ms. Nessie manages her property in a thoroughly neat way. Everything is perfectly clean. The idea is, that every guest is invited to participate actively in keeping common facilities clean and organized.
There was a good breakfast with freshly baked bread, prepared every morning for us. The only thing we were missing was an access to the kitchen to cook our own lunches and dinners.
For us the main highlight of the B&B were museum cards, which Ms. Nessie provided for the time of the stay. These cards gave free access to all State museums and allowed us to save enormous sum of money, as we were visiting Amsterdam mostly for sightseeing.
We would definitely recommend Garden View B&B for those, who comes to Amsterdam not only because of coffee-shops and red-lights.

Room Tip: Both rooms are with balconies to the garden. One room (to the left from the kitchen) is a bit bigger...
