TWOROOMS-AT-VONDELPARK (NO.1 OF 2)
From our bed and breakfast you can easily access the famous Museum Quarter with the Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and Rijksmuseum. The major museums make this area a unique travelers paradise. Moreover, you will find here many luxury boutiques, cafés and the majestic concert hall, the world famous Concertgebouw from 1888. Because of its highly regarded acoustics, this concert hall is considered one of the finest venues for classical music worldwide. Leidseplein is right at the other end of the Vondelpark. This place is synonymous for nightlife till dawn. At Leidseplein you find the Stadsschouwburg, which is the main theatre, several cinemas, many bars, clubs and restaurants, as well as the famous music temples Paradiso and Melkweg.
Our accommodation is positioned very convenient and a relaxed, half hour walk through Vondelpark will take you to the high-cultural cluster at Museumplein and / or to the very heart of the entertainment area at Leidseplein.
In the surrounding neighborhood you can find everything that makes your weekend break in Amsterdam comfortable and enjoyable. In walking distance there is a wide selection of cafés and delicious take-away. Restaurants range from Thai, Japanese, Indonesian food, to Brazil and Surinam kitchen, a Kosher restaurant and various Italian places. There is an outstanding wine bar next door and a cocktail bar at the corner. In summer one might prefer the beer garden at Vondelpark (at the park entrance across the street). Walking down the street, there are many convenience stores including a well-stocked supermarket (during the week open until 10pm, on Sundays until 7pm), a couple of small grocery stores, several bakeries, an eco-food-store, an exquisite small corner shop with the most delicious ice-cream, and very important — a late night shop that is open until 1am. Next door is a bicycle repair shop that is renting bikes. The rental fee is €10 per bicycle per day.
Our bed and breakfast offers 2 guest rooms for 2 persons each on the second floor of our private house. One room has the size of 25 m2 (No.1), the other 16 m2 (No.2). The rooms are offered separately, but can be requested together. This offer concerns the larger room of 25 m2. The room is modestly furnished with some 1970s / 1980s furniture. It has a French bed with a good matrass. The two rooms share the bathroom which is equipped with a bath tub, washing stand and a toilet. Wireless internet is available.
Generally we don’t do breakfast and it is not included in the room rates. There are however two very recommendable cafés in close proximity, which open early in the morning. Using our kitchen for making coffee or tea is always possible.
Our family and child friendly accommodation has been visited by the authors of the German DUMONT travel guides (Amsterdam. DUMONT Reise-Taschenbuch and Amsterdam. DUMONT direkt) and is recommended in the 2012 edition and the forthcoming 2014 edition.
Public transport and parking:
Our bed and breakfast is easily accessible with public and private transport. The tram lines no.1 and 2 have stops in close proximity to our house and connect straight to the Central Station at the IJ-embankment. The motorway exits S106-S107-S108 are close-by and the international Airport Schiphol is located in 12,5 km distance, easily accessible by train.
Street parking in our area costs €3 per hour or €21,60 per day (Mo-Sa; Su free parking). Alternatively, in close vicinity to our house, at the northern side of the 1928 Olympic Stadium is a municipal park and ride facility (P+R). Parking in the P+R facility after 10am during the week and during the weekend costs €1 per 24 hours. Parking during the week before 10am costs €8 for the first 24 hours and then €1 per 24 hours. You may leave your car up to 96 hours (4 days) in the garage. Since this is a park and ride facility and the low-priced parking is connected to the use of public transport, it is important that the last check-in with the public transport chip card has been in the center area. If this is not the case, the regular parking fee per hour is applied. The public transport ticket (OV chip card) must be purchased separately at the ticket machine available in the garage.

My name is Ken and I am offering a nice and affordable private room in my apartment on the 7th floor accessible with elevator which is shared with me (your host) in front of the Rembrandtpark.
Your private room has a 2-person bed and wireless internet. When you book for 3 and you'd like to stay in the same room I will set up my instant 1 person bed. You can use my shared-kitchen, shared-bathroom, shared-toilet, shared-living room, washer, balcony and fridge.
Smoking is allowed on my balcony only.
You will be staying very close to the metro, bus and tram stops which is less then 2 minutes of walking distance and with a short 10 minute travel distance to the Amsterdam city centre.
My apartment is 20 minutes from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport with the public transport. I also have 2 traditional Dutch bicycles available. Seeing Amsterdam by bike is highly recommended as you can get around faster and see more.
What my previous renters and I love the most about my neighbourhood is that it is a local neighbourhood with locals and not a mass-touristic location and whenever you want; within just minutes you can reach Amsterdam city centre with the tram, one of my traditional Dutch bicycles(FREE lending) OR just ask me to drop you off with my VIP micro-car for a small (micro)-price!
Getting around is very easy for anyone in my neighbourhood, nearly everyone understand english and there are lots of signs giving a clear overview and reminders..
Need more information?
I'm always open for dialogue, simply message me..
