Bernard and Martijne were wonderful hosts, very helpful and kind. My husband and I stayed in the Garden Room for 3 nights while visiting Amsterdam, and we were impressed by the decor. Every detail has been considered: floor heating, doors and blinds for darkening the room for morning time, breakfast in the conservatory, high-speed wireless internet, a nice big bathtub (complete with a selection of bubble baths), tea and coffee, mini-fridge, microwave, bags for bringing leftovers from the terrific breakfast with you.
The location is perfect, as far as we were concerned. The Parkzijde is located right on several tram lines (we used two of them: one straight to the Central Station, the other to Museumplein and the van Gogh museum). Because of its location outside of the center of the city it's very quiet. Oosterpark is a beautiful green space, and it's lovely in the morning walking to the tram listening to the birds in the park.
We very much enjoyed our time at the Parkzijde, and would definitely come back if we were in Amsterdam again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You find Parkzijde in front of the beautiful Oosterpark, just outside the busy city-center. The elegant house (1892) still remains conserved in its original style. 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
