Amsterdam was at the tail end of our 2 week vacation. We chose the Vondel View B&B, based on TripAdvisor reviews, and the reviews were right on the money. We spent 4 nights, in the main floor suite, in the middle of May. The suite was a bit of a splurge for us but it was worth every penny. The suite was spotless and spacious. You could tell that Rita has taken great care to ensure that the room is stocked with every amenity - from rain ponchos to a sewing kit.

A very generous breakfast was delivered daily at a prearranged time. To say that breakfast was scrumptious doesn't do it justice. We could tell that Rita takes great pride in preparing traditional breakfasts and she uses only the freshest ingredients.

The B&B is centrally located and is an easy walk to shops, museums, restaurants, the tram, and Vondel Park.

As we were packing to leave, we were already thinking of a return trip to Amsterdam and the Vondel View B&B.

We chose Vondelview B&B based on all the reviews here, and boy, did we make an excellent choice!. We stayed there for 5 nights. The location is about 1 minute away from the Vondelpark, which is a lovely place to jog, bike, or even stroll. Although it is close to the city center, it is off the beaten path enough that I felt like we were able to have an authentic Dutch experience; we were able to shop and to dine at places without a definite touristy feel, which made our stay in Amsterdam much more enjoyable.

We stayed in the Flower Room. It was absolutely gorgeous, as was our adjoining bathroom. (The bed is also comfy!) It was nice to have the whole floor to ourselves. However, if you do choose that room, make sure you are able to easily climb a steep set of stairs. The room at the ground level is lovely as well, and would be better suited for someone older or a family with children.

Rita and her niece were very accommodating. They helped us with anything we needed including printing some tickets for us. Also, a delicious and healthy breakfast was served to us each morning at the time we desired. It was nice being able to dine in our room rather than going to another location for breakfast.

Coming from the Schiphol airport, we took a taxi. However, it is also very easy to take the tram back to the airport or Central Station. A stop for Tram 2 is less than a 5 minute walk away, and it took us less than 15 minutes on the tram to make it to Central Station. The same tram also takes you to the Dam, the Spui, and other main sights.

We hope to make it back to Amsterdam soon, and we will definitely choose the Vondelview again!

We stayed at the Vondel View B & B for five nights and couldn't believe how lucky we were to be there. It left an indelible impression on us that will forever be part of our positive memories of Amsterdam. We loved staying there and hope to return soon.

The Vondel View B & B is so much nicer than yet another forgettable hotel. Rita and her husband (an architect) have transformed a Dutch house into an inviting B & B. We stayed upstairs in the gorgeous Flower Room with its large and unique adjoining bathroom. We had the entire upper floor to ourselves. Beautifully appointed and comfortable, it's filled with nighttime quiet and morning light.

Rita brought breakfast to our room each morning at the agreed upon time. It was always abundant, fresh and interesting. She happily accommodated our dietary requests. In fact, I'd have to say she was happy to accommodate any request we made. Whether it was for directions, museum hours or sightseeing ideas, she was cheerful and helpful. Rita is a charming hostess, warm and welcoming. She thinks of everything you could possibly need/desire and then provides it.

The B & B is located in a very nice residential area just a short tram ride from Central Station only half a block from Vondel View Park. At first I was concerned that we would be too far out of the action, but Amsterdam is a very small city. We walked everywhere from the B & B. only occasionally taking trams. Many of the main attractions and museums can be accessed by walking through the park. Such a lovely way to start and end the day! We were so happy to have the opportunity to live like locals for those five special nights.

If I could give the Vondel View B & B place six stars, I would happily do so. It's perfect in every way: an excellent accommodation in a fantastic location.

Room Tip: Both rooms are incredible. You can't go wrong with either one.

The best decision we did was looking for a great B&B instead of hotel and finding this place!
The stay at VondelView with wonderful Rita as our host was the best experience, making our weekend in Amsterdam perfect not only when walking in Amsterdam's street but also spending time at the beautiful room, taking a great bath, sleeping really good and having the best breakfast!
The Vondel park - 1 minute from the B&B is a wonderful place to walk and get to all the main attractions, there are many restaurants and shops near the B&B and everything is in walking distance, on the other side this is not the noisy center of Rembrant square - and it's for the best.
Rita, out host, is warm and welcoming, the place is designed beautifully and the breakfast was special with lots of details and thought - it was the best way to start the day.
Rita and her daughter helped us with our travel plans, taking care of all our needs.
I knew it's the best match for us when we found it in tripadvisor 2 months ago and my thoughts became true, I have nothing to say but best wishes to Rita and best reccomandation I can give!!!

Vondel View B & B is absolutely lovely. The Host Rita and her daughter Lisa are a pleasure to meet. The B & B is right on the doorstep to Vondelpark and Rita could not do enough for us. The breakfasts are a delight served in your room. Would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a quiet spot to stay. Number 1 tram at end of the street which takes you to Ledelsplein and Dam Square
