My husband and I had a 3day, 2 night stop in Amsterdam. 1680 was central to everything. We walked our legs off in every direction. Our room was big, with a soaring ceiling, huge windows, making the room light and airy. Although we did not see our hosts the email correspondence prior to our stay was prompt, courteous and very...

My wife and I flew from Boston, Massachusetts to Amsterdam and stayed at Joost and Dennis' B&B 1680 from July 5-7, 2013. Even prior to our arrival, our correspondes with Jooost had been excellent. He is accurate, conscientious and very polite. As for the location, all I can say is that I don't think there can be a more central... More

The B & B 1680 is a pleasant place to stay in, but it has two big drawbacks (read on for those). Upon arrival the first thing we noticed was that the b&b was quite hard to find. If you are having trouble, look for the door beside the window with the wedding dress. The location of the b&b is... More

I think they are having an identity crisis. Don't expect a B and B unless the second B stands for basket - which I may add along with the phone number for the taxi that I needed to phone at 5 am wasn't delivered on our final morning. Really disappointing finish. The toilet seat in the black and white room... More

The B&B is in a very old house without elevator or a/c but with narrow winding wooden steps. It undoubtedly has character and atmosphere but not any more than that. You should not choose this b&b if you would like to see or talk to one of the staff or owners, if you like milk in your tea or coffee,... More

We stayed in the white room at the back, neat, clean and comfortable with great shower. Breakfast was not spectacular, however there are so many great pastry shops in the area. This location is central to everything which is great for sight seeing. If you are looking for somewhere where you are free to come and go, left alone and... More
