Had an amazing stay in what could quite possibly be the best b&b in Amsterdam. The room is beautiful and spacious and so is the bathroom, there’s any commodity you could ask for and the room service is just unheard of. I was supposed to go there with my girlfriend, but after a series of unfortunate events I ended up there with a friend of mine: I can honestly say that had I been in that room with garden view, breakfast served almost in bed every morning, a handful of suggested restaurants from all over the world nearby and an impressive collection of movies with my (now ex-) girlfriend, we’d have barely visited the city. You won’t want to leave your room: that’s just how good it is.
Thank you so much for this extremely nice review! We both were a bit confused by your compliments. It’s not our purpose to keep guests at home, missing Amsterdam! We do hope that our guests feel comfortable in our house, and obviously that was the case for you. So we are happy! Whenever you return to Amsterdam, be sure you’re always welcome here!

Parkzijde B&B suited our needs extremely well when staying in Amsterdam. Martijne and Bernard were very welcoming hosts. Our room was roomy and comfortable well appointed with lots of tourist information. Breakfast included special treats and was large enough to cater for lunch as well. The B&B had great access to public transport and many restaurants in the area. Oosted Park opposite was a delightful respite from the hustle and bustle of central Amsterdam. Highly recommended
Thank you for taking the time to write a review! And thank you for the useful information you provide.

Un hébergement qui a tenu ses promesses. Martijne et Bernard sont un couple très accueillant et Bernard n'est pas avare de conseils. Le B&B n'st guère plus cher que les chambres d'hôtel du centre... mais la chambre est quasiment un petit studio : spacieux, bien équipé (un petit frigo, un micro-onde, une bouilloire, une cafetière ..). Le déjeuner est très copieux ( mention particulière pour les pancakes aux myrtilles !).. de quoi tenir toute une journée de ballade dans Amsterdam !.. et qui plus est savouré dans la jolie véranda attenante à la chambre, avec vue sur le jardin. Le B&B est bien placé, en lisière du centre : pour notre part nous avons laissé notre voiture au P+R de l'Arena, puis avons tout fait à pied et en tramway (plusieurs lignes à quelques dizaines de mètres du B&B). Bref une très bonne adresse ...
Thank you for taking the time to write this this review! And very well that you loved our pancakes! You stayed in our Garden room (the Park room has a view on the Oosterpark).

Our second visit and again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the hosts are extremely helpful. There are a number of good restaurants in close walking distance and access to the tram system of Amsterdam makes getting about easy. We have no problem in recommending this B&B breakfast in the garden room is a delight. Alan and Liz Mckee.

We enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam at the Parkzijde! The room with breakfast area and view to the green sourrounding was amazing! The nice owners were really helpful in giving tips for eating, markets or museums! We definately can recommend this place and will be back some day!

We booked the room close to the garden : large enough for our whole family and very kind welcoming by our guests ! they gave us also good advice for restaurants in their neighbourhood. We'll come back !

My sister and I had little experience of Bed and Breakfast establishments so we were delighted to find one that exceeded our expectations. the Garden Room where we were staying was a very good size with all you could wish for in such a room and the breakfast area made all the difference, setting itself away from the general area. The thoughtfulness of providing 'sandwich' bags for food not eaten at breakfast was inspired and we found them most useful. We would always recommend this B & B to anyone visiting Amsterdam where the hosts would meet them with such helpfulness and thoughtfulness making a staya most enjoyable experience..

We stayed in the Garden Room for two nights. From our private breakfast table we had a view of a garden. The Parkzijde is across the street from a beautiful park with a lagoon and sculptures. There are trolley stops and restaurants within walking distance. Martijne and Bernard were extremely helpful in instructing us how and where to catch trolleys to tourist attractions.It's a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city of Amsterdam.

We stayed at the Parkzijde for three nights at the end of a cruise in May 2015. The location of the B&B was a perfect get-away from busy central Amsterdam. We used the tram to get to and from the B&B which was very quick and efficient. Bernard and Martijne were very helpful and gracious hosts! The Garden room was spacious with plenty of room to put belongings without feeling cramped. The room was also nice and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the Dutch breakfast that Bernard served each morning in our room. It was plentiful with a nice variety to start each day. We spent the evenings enjoying dinners near the B&B as it was a perfect way to end our busy days. Restaurants are all within walking distance of the B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return there again.

We had a great stay at Parkzijde. The Garden Room was lovely, with a private conservatory for breakfast. Martijne and Bernard were very helpful with any arrangements and recommendations that we needed. The location worked well for us, a short tram ride or pleasant walk to the museums and other attractions and a quieter area for dinner and a stroll in the evening.

Nous avions la chambre côté jardin et elle splendide. Les photos sont en dessous de la réalité .nos hôtes étaient adorables et très serviables (en plus matijne se débrouille en français bien mieux qu’elle ne le pense). La maison et a 2 minutes du tram et a 10 mn du dam, dans un quartier très coquet. Nous y reviendrons sans hésitation

Accueil charmant et chaleureux. De nombreux conseils. Chambre très agréable. Grande accessibilité. Tickets de transports vendus sur place (très pratique) C'est tout ce que nous recherchions!

We spent three nights in Parkzijde B&B in Amsterdam - our first trip abroad with our 22 month-old child, therefore quite challenging. The B&B is a little bit far from the city centre for those who don't like taking the public transport. We did it on foot with our pushchair and it is a pleasant walk. The structure itself is just lovely: we stayed in the Garden Room, an elegant one furnished with all you need for a relaxing holiday. There is a lot of space so we could accommodate our travelcot easily. The bathroom is a dream, with the largest bathtub I've ever seen on Earth. The best bit is the Conservatory, a large private space with big windows set in the rear garden and accessible from our room where we had breakfast; we were allowed even to bring our own food - which was a benefit with the little one. The service was lovely as well: the owners and our host, Marieke, were caring, helpful and proactive during the whole holiday, providing us with a lot of information and loads of food for breakfast, with special attention to our child. They also gave him a soft toy - a tiger cub that, he says, comes from 'Amstam'. Parkzijde B&B is a great deal in Amsterdam (I didn't mention the price - very convenient, all-inclusive, compared to the vast majority of B&Bs in the city) and we have already recommended it! Thank you, this experience made the difference to our holiday. Alessandra & family

Staying here was an all-around great experience. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, clean, charming place to stay in Amsterdam. It was next to a really nice park, and within walking distance of downtown and all the sights of Amsterdam. Room had all the amenities, along with many more that we didn't get anywhere else in our travels. Breakfast was always a delight, and the host was very pleasant and fun to talk to. This was the best place we stayed while in Europe, and I would recommend it to anyone.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights on our honeymoon in June. Our stay was better than we ever could have imagined! Martijne and Bernard were very kind and helpful. The room was very nice and clean. We loved having breakfast brought to us each morning. There was always enough food with the breakfast to have leftovers for lunch and a snack! We highly recommend staying at the Parkzijde and hope that we have the chance to return someday!

Martijne and Bernard were very friendly and helpful hosts. We stayed in the lower room for 2 days and particularly liked sitting in the conservatory - in the mornings to eat breakfast, and in the evenings to read, write and relax, with a pleasant view of a beautiful garden with a pond. The breakfasts were excellent and large enough to provide us with lunch too. The room was nice and quiet and access to the places we wanted to visit was easy on the Number 9 or 3 trams. The park opposite, Oosterpark, was very pleasant for quiet strolls and nice scenery. It was a good quiet location for us - highly recommended!

Had a great stay at the Parkzjide B&B. Much more interesting than staying in a hotel. All facilites first class and although not in the centre it is only a short tram ride. I would recommend to anyone.

I have looked for the quiet place for me and my friend to stay during the conference that took place in Amsterdam. We have stayed 5 nights in Park room. I may say that it was great experience: so tasty breakfast, so comfortable and clean room and many little things that made atmosphere warm and welcoming! Highly recommend this place.

We stayed in the Park room, which was clean, quiet and very nicely decorated, exactly as you can see on the pictures. It offered all the amenities of a 4-star-hotel plus a few extras such as a computer with internet connection, DVD-player/collection and microwave (which we didn't make use of). The en-suite bathroom seemed to be quite new. Our hosts were very kind. The room has got a ventilation system for fresh air and you cannot open the windows. I'm a fresh air junkie and missed that a lot. In view of this fact I also didn't really like to have breakfast in the bed-room. Breakfast was abundant and included eggs, fresh orange juice, yoghurt and different fruits every day. However, I would have prefered fresh rolls and bread instead of the semi-finished ones from the supermarket, which were crisped up.

Pasamos una fantástica semana en Parkzidje B&B, está un poco apartado del centro histórico de Amsterdam (15 minutos andando) pero en Amsterdam todo está cerca. Nosotros solamente necesitamos coger el autobús el último día, el resto de los días paseamos sin problemas desde el B&B hasta el centro. Aún así el tranvía y el bus paran a 20 metros del B&B y funcionan muy bién. Además al estar un poco alejado la zona es muy tranquila y agradable. En cuanto a la atención prestada por los anfitriones Martijne y Bernard, magnífica, solamente mencionar los magníficos desayunos que nos sirvieron en la habitación!!! el resto dejo que lo descubrais vosotros que merece la pena.

Warm welcome and useful tips from the very proactive and well organized houselords. Very nice breakfast! Nostalgic parkview (especially when it has snowed). Good bed and clean room + bathroom. Overall a heartwarming experience to be repeated.

This was Our 2nd stay at the Home of Martijne & Bernard Neuhaus...having stayed in both rooms... the Park Room & The Garden Room...We Sensed the Love & Caring projected from Our Hosts. Luxuriously High Standards...Excellent food...& an added bonus...a special request fulfilled by Martijne which now is proudly displayed in Our Kitchen & Dining Room. Martijne is an Artist & Her work is place upon porcelain allowing Us to have a hands-on connection through Her work. We highly recommend Parkzijde Bed & Breakfast for Anyone who wishes to be surrounded in Beauty!" Pat & Robert Timmermans...Mount Wolf, Pa.

All I can say about Parkzijde is wow!!!! My friend and I checked out a number of hotels and they all wanted between 1000 and 1500 euros for 8 days with no meal included. The price for Parkzijde was considerably less, and the accommodations and service were superb. Martijne and Bernard were friendly and outgoing and went out of their way to talk to us about anything and everything. The breakfast was excellent with fresh bread, meat, cheese, and coffee served right in our room at the time we specified without fail. We stayed in the Garden Room (Tuinkamer), and if you have the option I highly recommend it. The breakfast nook looking out into the garden creates a wonderful ambiance. The room was clean and had its own refrigerator, a laptop with internet access, and a wide array of movies to choose from if you just want to sit at home in the evening. Parkzijde is located just a short walk from the tram station for easy access to get around and directly across from the beautiful Oosterpark. If you are planning a trip then you could not ask for a better place to stay in all of Amsterdam. Kirby Cobb United States

My fiancé and I stayed in this wonderful B&B in May and couldn't have asked for a better place to lay our heads down at night. We stayed in the Park Room and each morning we were served breakfast, with enough food left over to eat for lunch while we explored the city. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating, even giving us a train ticket that had been left by a former guest when the volcano erupted. The location is perfect and within walking distance to 3 tram stops, which will take you into the city. Also, there are shops, two farmers markets, two bakeries and of course the park all within walking distance as well. When we return, we are definitely staying here again.

It was almost a bless to find this B&B on Internet accidentally. Thanks to Martijne and Bernard kindness our stay in Amsterdam has been even better than we expected. We have been so lucky to have stayed in both rooms and all we can say is that they are magical (each one in their own style). We only feel sorry for not having spent more time at the rooms but Amsterdam is wonderful too. We haven't found so many facilities in any other place we have been so far (four and five stars hotels included). But the biggest difference are Bernard and Martijne: they make you feel at home (or even better). We recommend to the following guests asking Martijne and Bernard anything they want to know about Amsterdam and following their suggestions. The rooms are full of details chosen carefully to enjoy them. Attention to the cups and plates of the breakfast wonderfully hand-painted by Martijne. And the situation is really good: quiet neighborhood (in front of a park) but easy to get to the downtown (tram, walking, cycling)

We stayed at Parkzijde for 3 nigths. It´s the best B&B we have gone to. The owners are the most kind persons and hostesses. The room is very nice and clean. The breakfast is perfect. I absolutly recomend this B&B, you will have a prerfect stay. Gladys Rangel. México.

Pasé una maravillosa semana en el Parkzidje B&B . El hotel está ubicado en una zona tranquila , frente al hermoso Oosterpark que crucé muchas veces para acercarme al centro de la ciudad...si bien hay variosTram y el metro cerca , en realidad es fácil ir caminando a todos lados y de esa forma se aprecia más la ciudad. Martijne y Bernard son realmente excelentes anfitriones y me brindaron más de lo que necesitaba .Nos pudimos comunicar muy bien en inglés ( que no domino perfectamente) .En la habitación no sólo encontré todo lo referido en su página sino también detalles que no esperaba ...desde café o té de varias clases ... azúcar en terrones ...hasta pilas o bolsas plásticas para poder guardar lo que seguramente les sobrará del desayuno.... Creo que esos detalles son los hacen la diferencia...

We stayed two night at Parkzijde B&B, and would like to thank our hosts Martijne and Bernard for a very memorable and relaxing time. They have thought of every convience for travelers and are so helpful in planning your time in Amsterdam. The breakfast was scrumptious and enough for lunch also. The little garden was full of charm and little surprises. They have thought of everything. Truly a gracious and comfortable place to stay. Thanks for the memories Martijne and Bernard! D & W from Washington state.

Martijne and Bernard were very friendly and helpful hosts. We stayed in the lower room for five days and particularly liked sitting in the conservatory - in the mornings to eat breakfast, and in the evenings to read, write and relax, with a pleasant view of the garden which looked more attractive than the website photo suggested. The breakfasts were excellent and large enough to provide us with lunch too. The room was nice and quiet and access to the places we wanted to visit was easy on the Number 9 or 3 trams. The park opposite, Oosterpark, was very pleasant for quiet strolls, except on Sunday when it was the venue of an international music festival which gave us easily accessible free enjoyment. It was a good quiet location for us and was about one hour twenty minutes via train and tram from the airport including waiting times.

Two middle age couples stayed at this lovely home in June 2009. The hosts were very helpful and served a most delicious breakfast which was enough for lunch also. the rooms were clean and included everything we could ever need, refrigerators, tvs, very soft towels and plenty of hot water. The house is very updated and decorated beautifully. The park across the street was such a bonus and very quiet. It is easy to catch the street car and get any where in the city. Plus a good choice of restaurants within walking distance. We would recommend this house to everyone. It was great.

This room far exceeded our expectations as the owners considered every convenience a traveler would need. We have stayed in many 3 star and 4 star hotels in Europe and this was the best! And Martijne and Bernard go out of their way to make one's stay comfortable. Location was great since it was out of the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam in a friendly local neighborhood but close to easy transportation. Robert & Shyrl Dougherty

We have been for 4 nights in this B&B. The breakfast is quite complete. The bed is wonderful! Very clean. Good transport comunication. Quiet place. The owners are very kind and help you in everything. So this place is very recommendable! Try it!

My husband and I stayed in the beautiful Gardenroom last Christmas (2008), it made us curious about this whole B&B 'thing', but so far we've found nothing that comes even close to matching this!

Hi, I stayed at Parkzijde on january 2009 for 4 nights. It was just lovely. The location is great if you want rest and tranquility, the room is more than confortable and the Osterpark is beautiful and silent and you are quite close to the center and the museums. The breakfast was very good and Martijne & Bernard are very nice and helpful. I rented a bycicle from them too, for a third of the price of the renting bycicle shops and it was excellent and didn't stand out as those orange ones you get in those shops. I totaly recommend this place, whenever I go back to Amsterdam I'll sure return to Parkzijde.

This beautiful B&B is situated right opposite Amsterdam’s Oosterpark, a short walk to the Tropen Museum and Artis (zoo), and a short bike ride from the centre of town. Hosts, Martijne and Bernard, are very friendly and helpful, even being able to suggest a few new places to visit which I’d never heard (having previously lived in Amsterdam for a few years), and providing us with maps and the latest tourist/going out info and even recommended some restaurants in the area. We were able to hire their bikes which completed the ‘Amsterdam experience’ for us. We stayed in the ‘Garden room’ which is just lovely. We’ve stayed in hotels and B&B’s around the world and this is by far the nicest. The room is spacious, with comfortable beds, a beautifully decorated and practical bathroom, great shower pressure, large flat-screen TV & DVD player (with a selection of DVD’s), a laptop with wireless internet, fridge with tea and coffee making facilities, etc... in short, everything you could possibly need! Breakfast, which Martijne served in the conservatory (heated floor), in the morning, was amazing. Fresh delicious bread rolls, a selection of dutch cheeses, fruit, coffee, etc. And at a very reasonable time – other B&B’s we’ve stayed in, have only served breakfast before 9am - Martijne asked what time suited us, which was great. I’d go back just for the breakfast! If you want a nice comfortable stay in Amsterdam, and be able to relax when you get back to your accommodation then this is the place for you! I only wish my own home was this lovely! I can’t wait to go back.

We read the other reviews before going and they were right. Had 3 great days at Parkzijde in July 08. Lots of special touches, and good email communication by the friendly and helpful hosts, wonderful room and beautiful breakfasts. Great being out of busy/noisy centre of Amsterdam and opposite Oosterpark. Within biking distance of countryside and fishing villages, yet easy access to town centre and museum district with efficient trams. Have already recommended it to friends.

A wonderful place to stay~close to the transit system and wonderful hospitality. The room was large with modern conveniences. We stuffed ourselves with breakfast food and packed a picnic lunch too!

My daughter and I were warmly welcomed and given restaurant and museum suggestions by our hosts. We enjoyed the huge breakfasts and were encouraged to make lunches with the leftovers! The location is away from the bustle of the central area but is within easy walking distance of many attractions. The trams are near by and are very user friendly. We loved being able to use a computer. We would stay here again and recommend this b&b.

We visit Amsterdam always in Spring since 4 years. This time we had a wonderful stay in the B&B Parkzijde. We hat de Gardenroom and it was wonderful. We took our breakfast in the wintergarden with a peaceful view. The room is very cozy and comfortable. The tram station is closed by the house. And a big park is right in front of the door. It was our best trip ever to Amsterdam. Thank you

A little slice of paradise. Friendly and helpful service. A cozy room with all the fixings, plus a view. A FULL spread for Breakfast to start your day. And to top it off, traditional Dutch 'Fiets' Bikes to ride around on. It doesn't take much to be impressed by this Dutch B&B!!!
4.6 on March 19, 2008
We stayed at Parkzijde for 5 nights in March 2008 and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Our hosts Martijne and Bernard were welcoming, the room was beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The bed was probably the most comfortable we have ever come across in a B&B and the location was brilliant (a couple of minutes walk to tram stops to take us directly to the city centre, the museum square or Leidseplein). Wonderful breakfast served in the room - all in all a fantasic stay.

We visited Parkzijde during Christmas 2007 and had an amazing time. Our hosts were knowledgeable, helpful and warm. The room was spacious and inviting, as well as being kept VERY clean! The breakfast was varied and delicious! Martijne is also an amazing porcelain painter, and I purchased a few of her pieces for family gifts! The B & B is also right down the street from the local post office which was VERY handy in mailing my gifts! I would recommend Parkzijde to any family or friend going to Amsterdam!

Spent the first four nights(Oct 14-18,2007) of a two week holiday at the Parkzijde. Room and bath were perfect. Breakfast was wonderful and served in the room. Loved having an internet connection in the room. Martijne and Bernard were delightful. Easy, five minute walk to the trams. Very decent restaurants/cafes within 10 minutes. Great place, great stay. Would highly recommend.

We spend 3 wunderful days at parkzijde bed&breakfast in june. The room was very cosy and the service was perfect. Delicious breakfast and helpful tips by Martijne and Bernhard. Located on the Oosterpark, you'll reach the citycenter by tram within 15 minutes. We will sure come back !
