“A wonderful hostess.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We stayed here for four nights and could not have had a better place to stay for our first visit to Amsterdam. Garden View is in a lovely, quiet neighbourhood and so easy to get to from Schipol Airport as is the City. Nessie is so helpful and very considerate. We arrived on Christmas Eve and had presents waiting for us on Christmas Day. She even made us a Christmas dinner! Our room was cosy, comfortable and warm. The Museum cards she let us use came in very handy too. We'd have no hesitation staying there again. (It was like staying at the home of an old friend).

We have just returned to our trip, combining an exhibition visit and an Amsterdam exploring holiday. Nessie's b'n'b is in the neighborhood of RAI, the main exhibition grounds, and just comfortable trip from the city center too. The most useful however were the eating and seeing advises of our kind landlady.
The bed is comfortable, the area is quiet, the breakfast is plenty, there are all the necessities in the bathroom (we were travelling with carry on bagage only), the room is warm and clean, what else you would desire after a whole day on your feet?

We started off our three week honeymoon here and had a great stay! We didn't have much planned so Nessie's recommendations for things to see and places to eat came in quite handy. We also took full advantage of the museum cards. The place is very quiet and the breakfast is wonderful. Nessie also kindly gave us a little bottle of champagne to celebrate. Very kind!

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!
