The Parkzijde Bed & Breakfast was an excellent find. We looked at all the reviews and booked the Garden Room over a year ago. We spent 3 fantastic nights in beautiful Amsterdam. Martijne and Bernard made our stay very enjoyable. We arrived very early in Amsterdam and our room was not ready yet. They allowed us to leave our luggage there and gave us suggestions on where to find a good cup of coffee and breakfast. Bernard suggested other sights and places to visit until our room was ready. The "Market" was a very nice place to visit.
Our room was in the Garden Room. The pictures of the Garden Room do not do it justice. The room is very spacious, very clean and the bed was comfortable. The conservatory where we ate breakfast every day was amazing. You can open the windows and sky lights and enjoy the cool morning air while you enjoy a huge breakfast.
Breakfast each morning was enough to feed us for lunch as well. It was great having the facilities to heat some food up that we had brought back with us.
Martijne had 72 hour GVB tickets available. GVB operates the metro, tram and most of the bus network in Amsterdam. This is great deal. You get unlimited access to all CVB transits. The tram stops is walking distance from the B&B which enabled us to get into the city easily.
We are planning another trip in Nov 2014 and will be certainly returning to this B & B and looking forward visiting with Martijne and Bernard again.

The “Goede Kamer” (“good room”), where former residents used to welcome their guests, has a high decorated ceiling and marble chimney. The room at ground floor has a view of the park. The Garden room is located at the rear of the house and has access to its own conservatory, overlooking our garden. ... more less
