“A Hidden Gem with nice extras”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2008

Our weekend stay at the Garden View was more than we could have asked for. It is located a short train ride from Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam South and has great tram and bus connections to all of the must-see sites in Amsterdam and beyond. Upon booking our stay, Nessie the owner gave perfect directions to the Garden view. The first time we took a taxi (we had big luggage), but upon checkout we took the wonderful stroll over the water and through a lovely neighborhood.

Nessie had everything prepared for us and immediately gave suggestions about what museums and sights to visit on our short trip. Whether it is a fabulous Indonesian restaurant or the Van Gogh Museum, she has the knowledge of living in the area for many years to steer you in the right direction.

The Garden View itself looks like any apartment building in Amsterdam on the outside, but once you step into your room it is anything but ordinary. If you want to feel at home then this is the place. And although I am not a big fan of shared bathrooms, we hardly ever saw our fellow guests, a nice German couple. The shower area is nice and large and she gives big towels with washcloths that I am used to in the states. If you forget any toiletries then she has them.

Our breakfast was a nice continental one, with warm bread, boiled eggs, yogurt, ham and cheese, juice, and coffee or tea. Even though it was winter and we were not able to see the garden area in bloom, we were definitely warmed by Nessie's hospitality and the comfort of our accommodations that felt a lot like home.

  • Liked — The comfort of the room and the location (not to far from the attractions while still having privacy)
  • Disliked — not much
  • Stayed February 2008, traveled as a couple

My first trip to Europe started in Amsterdam and was a wonderful experience, thanks to Nessie. She helped us with "things to do" and "places to go". Her hospitality was warm and inviting and the daily breakfast was a delightful experience itself. I truly hope that someday we will be back to visit Nessie and wonderful Holland.

Stayed August 2007
