Location is very centrally located, was a little hard to find since there was no sign at the door. Staff was friendly and room was available upon arrival. The room was very basic though, only one window opens and there is no air conditioning due to the building not being allowed to have it, as we were explained. It lacked... More

Lovely B and B. we stayed in the white room for two nights-very pretty and cute, little but enough. Great location in the red light district next to the hash museum. No sign but B and B name stated on buzzer. Basic breakfast but alright with fresh fruit and breads with different spreads. Would visit again.

Location was great, just on the edge of Red Light District, it is quieter than we expected. We originally wanted the white room but it was taken, however when we arrived, it was vacant, so we were a little bummed. Black room was nice too though don't get me wrong, it has its characteristics. Bathroom was recently renovated. Breakfast wasn't... More

It was very difficult to find the place as the signeage was so small. It would help a great deal if the management gives a few landmarks like saying it's smack in the red light district and it is next to the Hash museum. The interior was a little gloomy and the breakfast was very basic. They were nice people... More

We stayed at B & B 1680 for 4 nights during out short break to Amsterdam. The location is wonderfully central for everything and we left each morning in a different direction to explore the city. Although right on the edge of the red light district, there are some great bars right on your doorstep. We loved the room, the... More

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
