“This unique B&B and the host provide a spectacular experience in Amsterdam.”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

The pictures on the website are a good depiction of the accommodations. The rooms, which are uniquely and artistically decorated, are spotless. Every comfort and luxury has been provided for the guest. Rita, your host, is warm, welcoming and goes to great length to meet your every need and wish. I loved the bed and pillows and slept better at Vondelview than I do at home.

I use Trip Advisor to plan my accommodations when I travel, therefore I try to give feedback for others to use. I had researched the best place to stay in Amsterdam and selected Vondelview. I am happy to report that this proved to be true. Convenient, comfortable, clean, spacious are all adjectives I would use. I can not think of a thing on which I could suggest improvement and I have not yet even mentioned the breakfast. If you think you have had a five star breakfast previously in your life, you will likely reconsider after a breakfast at the Vondelview. Five star does not adequately describe the food. Two mornings, two different sumptuous breakfasts. Our third morning was a very early morning flight, so Rita prepared us some food to go. Loved the stay and would stay again. Note: the second floor Flower room is very nice, but as stated on the site the spiral stairs are steep and narrow. We are in our mid 60's and had no problem, but we are very mobile. The downstairs room (in which our friends stayed) is easier access and also very nice.

If you want to experience the real Dutch culture yet still be independent and private, the Vondelview is the place for you. The moment I walked into the Flower Room I was charmed by its beautiful decor and homey feeling. As inexperienced travelers from a rural community we were unaccustomed to the crowds in Amsterdam and the amount of bikes! Vondelview is just far enough away from the city center as to be peaceful and quiet yet a mere 5 minute walk to the nearest tram. The B&B is on a street that dead ends into the park entrance. We arrived early, around 10 am and didn't expect our room to be ready. Our hostess, Rita greeted us and suggested we explore Vondelpark while our room was being readied. What a lovely way to relax and work out the stiffness of the 8 hour flight. We had lunch in an outdoor café in the park while enjoying a beautiful view of the film museum. Rita's breakfasts were superb surprising us with something new each day. In fact the setting is so lovely and the food so scrumptious we were tempted to linger too long before beginning our sightseeing. One day we were going to travel the Historic Triangle and planned to leave before breakfast. Rita packed a lunch for us instead and also included a few things for us to nibble on for breakfast. She was always so pleasant and helpful. Our last day was a Sunday and Rita made come calls to help us determine what church would be the best to attend and still make our train. Then she surprised me with a little gift for my birthday. Such thoughtfulness in all she did made this a unique and unforgettable experience.

Room Tip: Elderly travelers should not attempt to navigate the circular staircase. Stay instead on the first...

We stayed for 5 days in the Flower Room for our inaugural visit to Amsterdam - and what a pleasurable experience. The location is superb, with handy access to trams & buses, right next to the lovely Vondel Park, and an easy walk to the three major museums (Rijks, Van Gogh and Stedelik) in the Museum Quarter.
The Flower Room is spacious & tastefully decorated with a big and modern bathroom - it's such a treat. We would echo the sentiments of other reviewers that Rita is indeed a marvelous hostess. Besides providing generous and sumptuous breakfasts which were different everyday, Rita was most helpful in providing us with good tips for restaurants, and helped organized the transportation to and from the airport. Her thoughtfulness and effort made our stay in Amsterdam exceedingly comfortable, enjoyable and memorable. We would definitely stay at the Vondel View B&B again whenever we visit Amsterdam again.
Rita - thank you, and you're the best.

We loved staying at Vondel View B&B!
Rita is the perfect host and provided absolutely everything we needed to make our stay super comfortable. We had a very cozy, quiet, and spacious room with very nice views. However, the real surprise was breakfast.The first morning when we got up and opened the door to to our living room we were delighted to see a table which was tastefully set with a variety of delicious food, from warm bread, croissants, cheese, fruit; everything very colorful and delicious!
The B&B is also conveniently located, next to Vondel Park, close to museums, not far from the city centre, very nice restaurants nearby and an excellent bike rental a few minutes' walk.
We definitely recommend staying at Vondel View B&B as it is a much nicer experience than staying at a hotel.
Thanks for everything Rita! We would love to come back soon!

I can only reiterate all that has been said in previous reviews! Rita is the most marvellous hostess providing information when needed without being intrusive - just the right mix. Beautiful rooms and a fun bath with Jacuzzi ! Delightful breakfasts and a really useful fridge just added to this most enjoyable stay. It is so close to all amenities - tram literally around corner (2 minutes from BnB) to the central part of Amsterdam - tram takes 10 minutes max and is every five minutes- but this BnB is so close to Vondel park and great shops, restaurants you could spend you time here! We've already booked for next year! Splash out on the suite -It's just simply wonderful!
PS for some reason the rating system won't allow me to choose the options I want but make no mistake I'm giving this BnB 5 stars in all categories!

Room Tip: splash out on the suite

We spent two nights in April at Vondel View and loved it. Rita was so welcoming and provided the best breakfasts ever! Our room was spacious and very quiet and the B&B location was perfectly placed for a stroll in Vondel Park, a short walk to museums and not far from the city centre by tram two minutes away. We had a most enjoyable stay and can thoroughly recommend this B&B.

Prices are not really cheap, however money are real well spent here. It is a real pleasure to stay in this B&B. You immediately find yourself as at home. The place is strategically located near the Vondel Park and walking distance to the city centre. Very quiet. The Breakfast is gorgeous.
what more... thanks Rita!
