This is by far the best B&B we've ever stayed at. You can tell the owners are experienced travelers because they have made things so easy for their guests. Not only free internet access, but a lap top right in your room available anytime for those of us who don't want to travel with our own. Multi-day transit cards for sale a face value to save you the trip to Central Station. Variations in breakfast so you don't get bored of eating the same thing. Sandwich bags to pack leftovers from breakfast to take with you for lunch. It was incredible. And the Parkside room overlooking the park was beautiful, modern, and spacious. The hosts were very friendly and informative (knowing about the law that requires restaurants to let you use their bathrooms was very helpful). We liked the privacy of eating in our room, which had a small fridge. There was also access to a microwave and DVDs to watch in your room. The location was very convenient. Ten minutes by tram to either the museum district or the city center. A five minute drive (with easy to follow directions) to a Park & Ride with affordable parking, free roundtrip transportation tickets (note that you need to hold on to these to get the discounted parking rate), and a direct bus back to the B&B or direct tram to the center. Even facing the street, the room was very quiet. We never saw or heard of the frat boys mentioned in other reviews. The rate was very reasonable. We look forward to staying there again one day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You find Parkzijde in front of the beautiful Oosterpark, just outside the busy city-center. The elegant house (1892) still remains conserved in its original style. The “Goede Kamer” (“good room”), where former residents used to welcome their guests, has a high decorated ceiling and marble chimney. The room at ground floor has a view of the park. The Garden room is located at the rear of the house and has access to its own conservatory, overlooking our garden. ... more less
