“Friendly, Beautiful, Good Located”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

We enjoyed our stay in Vondel View. Rita gave as a warm welcome, the apartment is spacious and tastefully arranged. We also enjoyed a gourmet breakfast, the good neighborhood and nearby Vondel Park. Sometimes her friendly, orange he-cat gave us a visit, which really was a big extra-bonus. Christian & Ingrid & Patrick

What a treat! Rita the cheerful proprietor of the Vondel View Bed and Breakfast will lend you her limitless insights, advice on what to do during your visit and an umbrella too. The Vondel View B&B is immaculate and furnished in contemporary style furnishings blended perfectly with traditional touches of old world Dutch hospitality and grace. Rita will arrange your transportation to and from the airport and see you off with a smile every day. Her breakfasts are fabulously prepared and cheerfully delivered each morning (sometimes accompanied by Jongen her equally friendly cat) to your room. Vondel View B&B is located on a quiet side street within quick reach of the tram line, restaurants and shops on Overtoom in one direction and the grand Vondel Park the other. Either way you turn from 14 Gerard Brandstraat you are a short walk from Van Gogh, Rembrandt, and classic canal architecture of old Amsterdam. We must admit however, all of this would have been lost to us when searching in cyber space for accommodations in a distant country had it not been for Rita’s reassuring, kind, and thoughtful correspondence. It left us with no doubt, and now with the experience, that Vondel View B&B is the best B&B in the Netherlands period. Ray and Paula Reuter

For myself, wife, and a 7 year old son, this was the best accommodation that we had during our small Europe tour including London, Paris, and Brussels. My son said it the best that Ms. Rita's house was better than any of the other 5 stars hotels we stayed in and my wife and I agree with him. We were really imprest with how the house and the rooms are well maintained. Breakfast was excellent and most of all came with special personal care that Rita provided. The location couldn't be better where all attractions are within walking distance. I am highly recommending this wonderful establishment that beats any 5 stars hotel in my opinion. Somehow my son got me to promise him to bring him back to Amsterdam and to Ms. Rita' house next year. I really want to thank Rita for being a great host and looking forward to our next visit. We love her cat, Koos

We stayed in this wonderful B & B for our 4th Wedding Anniversary. The B & B is located in a very convenient spot a couple of minutes walk from the tram stop, which is 7 or 8 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam. It is on a side street close to Vondel Park (despite its name it does not have views of the park). It is very quiet.

The B & B has a suite downstairs where we stayed. It had a large lounge with computer, TV, comfy sofa and wardrobe. Next to the window is a breakfast table where we were served breakfast every day (more on this later). The bedroom is off the lounge through an arch and holds a large very comfortable bed and plenty of storage for all your things. All the furniture was very good quality. The bathroom had high quality tiling and a large Jacuzzi bath. Again, fittings were of a very high standard (no mouldy grout to be seen). Large fluffy towels and dressing gowns were available. The entire suite was spotlessly clean and nice and warm.

The best warmth came from our host Rita. She welcomed us with open arms when we arrived, gave us a little tour, and had lots of recommendations for where to eat locally. She is a very friendly person and speaks perfect English. Each morning she brought through an excellent spread for breakfast. We liked the fact we could have breakfast in our lounge and didn’t have to share a table with other people. Examples of what we had for breakfast are homemade raisin bread, omelettes, platter of fruit, ham and cheese, etc. The crockery, cutlery and linen napkins were of the quality you would expect to receive in a 5 star hotel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our romantic break in Amsterdam and the highlight of the trip was the fantastic B & B Vondelview. If you have high standards and are let down by the service in top end hotels, now is the time to start thinking of B & Bs and this is an excellent place to start.

Room Tip: The ground floor suite is outstanding

Vondelview is in a quiet pretty street with no tourists - Vondel Park is at one of the street and the busy Overtoom with the wonderful tram no 1 is at the other end. You can walk to the museums (Vincent Van Gogh, Rijk) through the park or tram 1 takes you everywhere we wanted to go ! We had the suite on the ground floor - little sitting room, huge bedroom and nice big bathroom with a full size spa - yeah !! Wonderful touches - umbrella, sewing kit, medical kit, safe, great storage and hanging space, mini frig, tea/coffee and some cutlery and plates if you want to eat a snack but after Rita's unbelievable breakfasts you wont want to eat until dinner time. - juice, fruit, croissants, rolls, eggs, ham, cheese and on one morning apple pie. AND your own PC plus free wi-fi. Wow !!! Good heating which was great as despite being mid spring it was cold in Amsterdam ! Rita is a wonderful host with good restaurant suggestions and she will book for you so you get a window seat !! Good restaurants to enjoy Sama Sebo (Inonesian try the risjtaffel - 17 small dishes) , New York Steak House (mixed grill 25 euros great value), Florentino for great Italian (pasta with fresh prawns 25 euros), Vitality great little cafe in the park to watch the dogs and the lycra mob ! One word of caution this is an old narrow canal house and there are 6 steep steps to the front door - however we are well into the senior age range and we managed perfectly - the stairs to the Flower room above us looked a bit daunting but all the guests who were there for the week we were, managed very well.
From Vondel view easy to get to Keukenhof Gardens from Leidesplain and bus 197 then change at Schipol airport for bus 58, easy to get to the Waterland villages - tram 1 to centraal station, go through the station to the canal side and follow the bus signs - get a Waterland pass (hop on and off at any village you want )from bus drivers who will also help with itinerary - look at buses 110,111, 112,16, 118 to get started. We loved Amsterdam.

Room Tip: The Suite on the ground floor was fabulous for a stay of 5 days.
