“Style, comfort, cosiness and friendliness: that is what Rita's B&B is about.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2011

We stayed at Vondel View for 3 nights, at the room on the first floor. Both the room and the bathroom are beautifully decorated, spacious, comfortable and have been recently renovated. They contain almost anything you can think of: hair-drier, tea and coffee facilities, safe, a fridge...There was also free wi-fi Internet connection but the signal was a bit low -at least on the first floor. The area is quiet but yet very close to Leidseplan and conveniently connected to the whole center with Tram 1-it goes directly to Central Station-, and is meters away from one of the entrances to the Vondel Park.

Breakfast was a real treat, kindly and discreetly brought up to our bedroom by Rita everyday at the time that suited us. Everything was taken care to detail, and included tea/coffee, juice, cheese, ham/salami, butter, marmalade, fresh fruit, warm bread, etc.

And, last but not least, Rita was a fantastic host. She took care of us but, at the same time, gave us loads of space and independence. We would strongly recommend this spot.

Ps: Just bare in mind the typical architecture of most of the houses in Amsterdam for, in order to get to the room we stayed at, one must go up a set of stairs. Having said that, Rita has also a suite-room at the ground level; Rita helped us carrying our luggage to the room anyway, so we also thank her for that.

We had a wonderful stay, the B&B is near the museum area , very close to the Vondel Park, wich we crossed at morning and night safely. The tram line is also very close and can take you anywhere you need. Our host Rita made us very special breakfasts, she was lovely and also very discreet, you feel the apartment is yours, nobody disturbs you. The room and the bathroom are tastefully decorated and very spacious. We really hope to come back !

I stayed in the suite on the ground floor, which included a living room with TV and computer, a bedroom, and a bathroom (complete with jacuzzi tub). The decor was beautiful, lots of space to put things away, and everything was very clean. Breakfast was served in the room - there was always more than I could eat and a nice variety of fresh fruit, warm bread, pastry, and cheese. The location was very nice - a short walk through Vondelpark to the Rijksmuseum and a tram was close by as well. Rita, the owner, was very friendly and helpful - she gave great directions and other tips. The walls are a bit thin, so be aware if you're a light sleeper. Highly recommended!

We booked this at extremely short notice (the night before!) and Rita could not have been more welcoming. It was our honeymoon and she attended to every detail down to roses on our arrival and even a wedding gift on departure! Breakfast was varied and filling and best of all, delivered to our door each morning.
We stayed in the 'Flower Room' and it was exactly as it appeared in the photos on the website; stylishly furnished with a very comfy bed. There is no TV in the room but there is free wireless internet access. The luxurious bathroom with sunken bath was perfect for a romantic soak.
If you like cats, then Koos, the extremely friendly ginger tom, is an added bonus.

I have been going to Holland since 1987. I have stayed in many bed and breakfasts as well as small hotels. Vondel View is now my absolute favorite and I will only stay there. The room and bathroom were well designed and very clean. The breakfast was excellent. I felt like I was in the home of family or friends. The bed was comfortable and linens considered and lush. The owner takes great pride in her business and pays strict attention to the details. She provides guidance if needed and support if there are any problems (I lost my cellphone and she assisted in tracking it down and arranging delivery). It is a fantastic location along side Vondel Park. I would recommend this place to anyone who values excellent lodging during travel.
