Garden View Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #67 of 338 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We stayed in a beautiful room, overlooking the private garden, and got to sleep in a canopy bed

After taking off our shoes the Garden View in Amsterdam was convenient to the trams, a truly pleasant, quiet, place to stay for our 49th wedding Anniversary. The other positives were breakfast in the room, hot fresh bread with each breakfast, and a couple of very useful museum passes that went with the room.

The one negative was that the bath was across the hall, but that was no problem for us, although it might be for some who travel.

We can't say enough nice things about Nessie, our hostess. She was a real plus.

All in all, our stay was wonderful

Room Tip: No Fitness Center or Swimming Pool, but truly WORTH A STAY.

A light cheery room, good nights sleep, comfortable easy chairs, nice breakfasts, and a fantastic and helpful hostess. We were in Amsterdam for a rowing regatta with some sightseeing and chose Garden View for it's location between the Bosbaan and the center of town. It turned out to have very convenient tram connections to both; a very easy run to the museums.The neighborhood is nice with several restaurants that we tried and enjoyed on Nessie's recommendation. She also had plenty of advice on other things to do and loaned us museum passes that saved us time and money. Garden View is in a quiet residential neighborhood, so if the Amsterdam night life is what you are after, it might not be the place for you. But if you are looking for a place to get away from that (we were), it's a perfect location. The breakfasts were outstanding with a variations on meat, cheese, an egg, fruit and always fresh warm bread. Served in the room with everything beautifully laid out and delicious. There was plenty to eat and have enough to put together a sandwich for later. A little fridge in the hallway with beer, soda and cold water was a welcome touch in the evening. Garden View has my wholehearted recommendation. Thanks Nessie. We hope to be back.

The rooms are bright, clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable if you like them firm, which we do. Sleeping was no problem. The rooms are well-appointed with comfortable chairs and a table. There are only two rooms since adding a room pushes the B&B into the hotel category with extra regulations. The bathroom and toilet are shared.

The breakfast is eaten in the room and was of European style, bread and jam, with the addition of a boiled egg. There is even some left over for lunch. Soft drinks are in the fridge. The B&B is slightly outside the central area, but is well served by rail to Schipol and trams to the museums and centretown. It is in a good residential area, so is pleasant and quiet. We found the B&B to be very convenient, as the trams are very frequent. Dutch public transport is a joy.

Nessie the proprietor provides a museum card which saves consideable time at line-ups and money. The museums are amazing, but breaks are necessary. So the card is a great benefit since it allows multiple shorter visits. She knows the city well and can provide lots of advice.

We would certainly stay at the Gardenview again if we were in Amsterdam.

We stayed here for 3 nights in April. Excellent location in quiet affluent residential area with good transport links and nice neighborhood restaurants. Very simple and quick to take the tram into the centre of town. The proprietor, Nessie, is an interesting and delightful lady who was extremely helpful and knowledgable on all aspects of Amsterdam. She gave us free museum passes which allowed us to be fast tracked into the newly opened Rijksmuseum and meant we saved over €60 on entrance costs here and at other museums we visited. Breakfast was good and plentiful; the room was lovely and very comfortable, and the whole place was spotlessly clean. We would certainly recommend the Garden B&B and plan to re-visit at some point in the future.

This June my wife and I landed at Schiphol to spend six days in the Netherlands before cruising the Rhine and Danube Rivers. We chose to stay at Nessie's and were winners. Nessie is a remarkable woman who loves to assist. Her facility is close to the rail line and one block from tram 24 - an all important travel mode. Nessi's place is impeccably clean, her breakfasts -delivered on a tray to the privacy of your room -are something to behold. Every morsel laid out with tender love and care - and so healthy.
. But the wonders do not stop there - Nessie loans you a museum entry card which cuts down on your costs and enables you to go to the front of the line. Nessie knows Amsterdam and the area like the back of her hand and is so willing to help you get to your choices. She even put beer in the fridge for me. Would we stay again with Nessie - absolutely and we will recommend her to our friends. Thanks Nessie for being you. Jim and Cheryl, Canada

Nessie's place was wonderful.

Easy to get to from the airport, just take the train to Amsterdam Suid (10 minutes) and walk for 10 minutes and you are there. Also, very convenient for the marathon we were in Amsterdam to run - just 1 km from the Olympic Stadium where the run starts and ends.

As mentioned in previous reviews, very tidy and nice - that's why Nessie is quite strict with the tidiness rules (and a good thing that is too!). Word of warning for the 'mericuns: you are expected to not walk in your dirty shoes inside, so take them off at the porch.

Excellent breakfast. Some people have complained about not having enough this or that in the breakfast - surprisingly enough, were we lacking something, asking more helped quite well.

A nice touch was Nessie putting our sparkling into the fridge when we forgot, and had champagne glasses waiting for us - after all, for three of us, this was our first marathon ever.

Room Tip: Both rooms are nice, one is somewhat bigger than the other.

We had a pleasant experience! The accommodation was very clean and well taken care off. The public transport was nearby and 10 minutes from the center. We had immediately a good impression. The housekeeper was delightful. She gave us lots of useful information and a map that we used the whole trip. The breakfast was lovely. We recommend this b&b to everyone.

Lots of greetings,
