Stayed here for a week in Nov.2013. First visit to Netherlands. Nessie was extremely friendly, with perfect English. A wonderful hostess. Her apartment is up a rather steep flight of stairs, but the neighbourhood is quiet, in a peaceful setting on a canal. The room and bathroom (shared). were spotlessly clean, wiith a variety of shampoos, soaps, lotions, etc. provided. Breakfast is generous and excellent (although a bit more variety would have been nice). It is close to transportation: approx.10 min. walk to a local train station, with easy access to the airport; also, just 1 block's walk to a tram stop - approx. 20 mins. ride to the main train station, the Red Light District, etc. and even closer to the MuseumPlatz and Concertgebouw. Nessie provided me with a museum card which saved the cost of entry fees to the major museums, as well as advice as to where to go and how to get there. She also gave little welcoming and departing gifts and made me a picnic lunch for my journey back to Heathrow and beyond. Very thoughtful and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this B&B and will stay there again in the future.

We stayed here for four nights and could not have had a better place to stay for our first visit to Amsterdam. Garden View is in a lovely, quiet neighbourhood and so easy to get to from Schipol Airport as is the City. Nessie is so helpful and very considerate. We arrived on Christmas Eve and had presents waiting for us on Christmas Day. She even made us a Christmas dinner! Our room was cosy, comfortable and warm. The Museum cards she let us use came in very handy too. We'd have no hesitation staying there again. (It was like staying at the home of an old friend).

We have just returned to our trip, combining an exhibition visit and an Amsterdam exploring holiday. Nessie's b'n'b is in the neighborhood of RAI, the main exhibition grounds, and just comfortable trip from the city center too. The most useful however were the eating and seeing advises of our kind landlady.
The bed is comfortable, the area is quiet, the breakfast is plenty, there are all the necessities in the bathroom (we were travelling with carry on bagage only), the room is warm and clean, what else you would desire after a whole day on your feet?

We started off our three week honeymoon here and had a great stay! We didn't have much planned so Nessie's recommendations for things to see and places to eat came in quite handy. We also took full advantage of the museum cards. The place is very quiet and the breakfast is wonderful. Nessie also kindly gave us a little bottle of champagne to celebrate. Very kind!

We did stay there for a longer weekend. It is a really clean and cozy place to stay. It is advised to really follow the instructions because it is not obvious to find. Do not trust the map in the mobile version of tripadvisor!
The tram is around the corner and takes you straight to the city. Nessie gave us awesome instructions on food places. It is as described in the booking pages, bath rooms are shared but its no stress at all plus absolutely like at home. Breakfast is served in the room and it is as yummy as it looks. We would definetely go there again because it is quiet to sleep and its more living area than party center.

We were extremely pleased with our recent vacation in Amsterdam. The Garden View B&B is clean, very comfortable, cute, and quiet. Nessie, our host, has literally thought of everything. We loved the care and detail put into the place that enhanced our experience (ie. clean towels, an abundance of bathroom products to use, fantastic coffee, slippers!). As the other reviews indicate, breakfast is great and quite a bit of food. The location is ideal, as we were just a short tram-ride away from the action in the heart of the city, but just far enough away to have a quiet, peaceful sleep and a relaxing morning. Will definitely return to Amsterdam and will stay here! Great value.
