Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Helga gave good directions that enabled me to walk straight to Pura Vida from the train station. The house is perfectly located for a stay in Dordrecht and the trains in NL give you access to everywhere else. The house is in a fantastic location overlooking the water and very close to the centre of town but in a quiet spot.
    The house has everything I needed and was spotlessly clean.
    I have already recommended it to a work colleague who usually stays in Rotterdam in hotels whilst over on business. It is so much better than being in a hotel.
    Helga is great and her house is super.

  • Prachtig appartement op een top locatie!
    Liefdevol bereid ontbijtje, geserveerd in een mand, was als een kers op de taart.

  • Absolutely gorgeous flat with a breathtaking view of the docks. The layout of the flat is very open, making it feel larger than it actually is. The open garden/patio area in the back is very detailed and beautiful. The bed and sofa are very comfortable, and there is enough seating to accommodate a few friends if you happen to know people who live in the area or meet people to hang out with.

    Dordrecht is an old city with old architecture, but has been immaculately maintained. One of my favorite things to do was just walk around the docks and walk through the city to see the local sights and visit local shops. A few blocks behind the flat you'll find a very large food court with a variety of shops and restaurants. It's a great place to socialize and find good food.

    The bottom line is - if you're visiting Dordrecht and plan to relax and enjoy the local sights, rent this flat! Helga is very helpful, very nice, and recommended several local sights and activities.

  • Helga is one of the most organized and thoughtful hosts we met in almost a month of travel. We were arriving by car to an area we didn't know. Helga waited for us by the window, and spotted a couple of tourists looking lost - us!

    We arrived late in the evening, so she prepared some things for pur breakfast, knowing we would not have time to shop before the next morning.

    She had an excellent selection of guide and tourist inflation available in the apartment.

    And the apartment itself was extremely comfortable and fully equipped. I hope we have the opportunity to stay with her again.

  • The flat was really nice, and located so perfectly in the old city of Dordrecht, with a lovely view of one of the small harbours out front. Helga and Jan were very friendly and supplied all of our needs. There were lots of supplies, including coffee and towels etc. The parking space was just right.

  • We had a wonderful time here and only wished we could have stayed longer. The apartment is beautifully finished, immaculately clean, full of daylight and with all the mod cons you could wish for. Jan and Helga were very warm, friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was also delicious! We'll hope to go back!

  • Sehr gepflegtes und gemütliches Appartement mit tollem Blick auf den kleinen Hafen mitten in der Altstadt. Wir waren mit Baby dort und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Helga ist sehr zuvorkommend!

  • The Van Dongen B&B is located in what must be the best location in the old city of Dordrecht: It is a totally renovated warehouse that the Dutch used in their Golden Age for commerce from the Indies, with an unbelievable view of an inner harbor in front, and to the side an unforgettable view of the city’s Big Church. The living space for the guests is on the ground floor, while Helga and Jan live upstairs in the adjacent but connected separate house. To perfect the location, the house is only one little street walk from the lively shopping center of the city. We wouldn’t know how to give better praise for our four day stay with them. The guest rooms: room-with-the view, bedroom, kitchen, and bath/laundry room, are equipped with all amenities, and the attention and help from Helga and Jan surpassed all expectations. They richly deserve the highest survey values.
