    Great hotel on the park

    Stayed for two days in July. Great little hotel right on Vondelpark. Clean rooms (we booked with private bathroom). Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast not included, but very fast and easy to use Wifi. We rented bikes from them (15 euro for 24 hrs, which is a bit pricier than the bike touring companies but then you'd have to pay 2,80 to ride the tram into town). Takes less than 10 minutes to bike into city centre.

    Miss something but extremely OK !!!

    from

    Me and my fiance spent there 4 days ,the location is very good just outside the centre close to the Vondelpark and with tram line 2 you will reach the sights in 10-15 minutes .

    I made the booking trought my travel agency Nordic Italian Travel and we have realy enjoyed our stay there ,room 11 is great and has helped me to strike my girlfriend ...........

    We missed all the breakfast because 9:00 was too early for us but that is our fault not their ,I met also the Owners realy nice people but I met only them because there is nobody else on the desk and sometimes we had to find the informations on the street or on a travel guide we bought in Italy .

    At the end ..........People go there !!!!!!!!!!!

    Nice cosy place, very good deal for the price

    from

    I think this is the best area of Amsterdam -near calm green Vondel park, all build in with 19th century villas and at the same time so near the center. The hotel itself is also a former villa, so i understood that all rooms are different. Mine spacious double had a great balcony overlooking the Vondel park. The owners (a charming couple) really care about the guests and create homely ambiance. Very clean! Great place indeed.

    If quiet is what you seek.....

    from

    If you are the type of traveller who prefers to stay in quiet area away from tourist center, I have a perfect little hotel for you. Situated near the end of VondelPark, the Villa Borgmann may not be the most covenient hotel for the short term visitor, but if you have a few days, and don't mind exploring by tram or walking through gorgeous neighborhoods and parks, it is a great choice.

    The neighborhood is wealthy and reminiscent of New Orleans' Garden District or London's Hampstead, with large houses, beautiful architecture and lovely gardens throughout the area. There are also a decent number of cafes and shops scattered around the neighborhood...Not right out the door...but pretty close. Due to that fact, we chose to eat breakfast out of the hotel, sampling a few of the local cafes...Also, the regular continental breakfast seemed a touch pricey to us at 10euro.

    There are a couple of tram stops a few blocks from the hotel...and a fairly dedicated walk to Leidseplein is about 10-15 minutes through the park...allow 30 minutes in reality. It is about the same to Museumplein...depending on one's window shopping time on Williamsparkweg and P.C.Hoofstraat...

    The hotel itself is very pleasant; sparkling clean and friendly...We had Room #11, a front room with a beautiful floor to ceiling bay window. The blond furniture and the bay windows made the room seem quite large...The breakfast room is lovely; overlooking a small canal and the park...and there is also a small sitting area in the garden in the rear of the hotel, which I found to be a great place for my evening smoke.

    All in all, an excellent experience...

    Great stay at Borgmann Villa

    from

    I just got back from Amsterdam and the first two nights were spent at the Borgmann Villa Hotel. We had a nice, spacious room with two gently firm beds. The stairs were steep, as they are all over Amsterdam, but they also have an elevator. the morning breakfast was very good for the 10 euro that they charge. I would defintiely book a room there again. It is not in the center of the city which was great for me. Instead it is on beautiful Vondelpark where I could jog in the morning and stroll in the early evening.

    Best night's sleep for years

    from

    I look for 3 things in a hotel - space, sleep and a good shower. We got all 3 at Villa Borgmann. Our double room on the second floor was about 6 by 4 metres, the bathroom 3 by 3, about twice the normal size. The area is quiet at night and the local restrictions mean little traffic during the day. Add this to the linked twin beds and I got the best nights sleep I have had in any hotel for a very long time.We arrived 90 minutes late because of flight delay but were given at 9 p.m. an excellent description of the key areas of Amsterdam which took us through the 3 days of our stay. The staff continued friendly and helpful throughout. Walking from the hotel through the Vondel Park to the Museum area takes about 25 minutes. Tram line 2 is about 5 minutes walk ( you could stay in a hotel on a tram track and be further from the stop than this ).To reach the hotel from Schiphol we could not find the bus to Hofpark Hotel so we took the train into town and a taxi out. After 3 days of riding on the trams we got adventurous so our return was a walk across the park, tram no 1 to Lelylaan station, and a train to Schiphol taking an hour in total and costing 5 euros each. There are up to 5 trains an hour on this route.Obviously all this is personal, as are the potential disadvantages. If we had stayed in the centre we could have returned to our room during the day, but we would have seen less. Our method for getting a rest during the day was to take a boat trip. Also, if you take a car, there is street parking on Koningslaan with a charge from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at 1,80 euros per hour.With a work colleague having had a bad experience with noise and poor facilities in an Amsterdam city centre 2 star hotel, we were very pleased with what we got at the Villa Borgmann.

    The Art of Beer

    ... excited about this attraction! And an experience it was! We were given the history, shown the process and then we were made into a beer - yes, you read that right! One of the experiences is in an interactive room where you are shown a video of the beer making process and you "ride along" with the bumps, water falling down on you, bubbles falling around you and the process of being "capped" - a bit of fun to make what would normally be an uneventful tour ...

    Welcome to the boring details of my first week in Amsterdam. The next entries will be much more interesting, I promise.

    My first week has been exhausting yet I think I'm going to like it here. Even in the summer it's my favorite type of weather, slight breeze and cool enough for a sweater or light jacket.

    My apartment is much nicer than I thought it would be, minus the salmon ...

I wish I had been allowed a sleep in on Monday mornings when working!!!! Could Australia learn a thing or two???

The first couple were really annoying, wanting us to put down 100euro cash each instead of credit card receipts, so after some careful google'ing we found a goody. What is even better than hiring bikes in Amsterdam? Finding out that they have peddle breaks!!! whooo hooo. For those of you who use to have a BMX you will know what I am on about. Skids!!!!!!! There wasn't much chance to do any when we ...

    ... we left the museum and walked around the city for a while. The area had several canals lined with house boats and several boat tours going through them. The buildings completely surrounded the canals and you never would have know it was built up the way it was unless you got a chance to walk through it. After walking around a little while, the weather started turning and it began raining. We tried staying inside of different shops to keep dry, especially when the hail started. ...
