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

This B&B is in a great location and very central to all the sight seeing areas. The owners are friendly and accommodating. The room was ideal for the over night stay. There is a fridge, hair-dryer, TV and tea and Coffee facilities. Breakfast was served in a picnic basket that was left outside your door, this included, bread, jam. spreads,... 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

If you want to live like a dutch, this is the place! A typical dutch house at the border of the red light district, 3 minutes walking distance from the Dam. The location is perfect. The room, well is a room, that's it. Simple, clean, minimal, design. Free wifi, free telephone calls to everywhere. Hairdryer, TV. No cupboard for the... More

We stayed for 4 nights, but wish it had been less(nothing to do with rooms, I just did not like Amsterdam). The room is very basic, clean, ensuite is adequate but small. Breakfast is alright, but its the same every morning, which gets boring quickly. Good price for Amsterdam, only met Eugenie, she was very friendly & helpful. Overall, alright... More

We stayed here for two nights prior to a cruise departing Amsterdam. We stayed in the Black and White room at the back of the property which was spacious and quiet. The main problem was the very steep spiral staircase to get the room made it difficult to get luggage up. They explained that due to heritage limitations with the... More

We booked this room after seeing reviews on Trip Advisor. The price was incredibly reasonable compared with everywhere else in Amsterdam. The location was perfect for having a taste of the red light district without having to be fully submerged. I imagine that the rooms can be a little noisy at night on the weekends, but it wasn't an issue... More

Delightful stay in the white room, joost was a great host and gave lots of good recommendations! Breakfast was good- no fresh coffee though. The room had a great view onto the canal! Only downside- very close to the wild red light district!

We only stayed a night and hope we had stayed another night so we can see more of Amsterdam. The B&B is very conveniently located, which makes walking around the city, and catching a train out of Amsterdam Central very easy. It's just at the cusp of the Redlight district, so for 2 female travelers that was an eyeopener, but... More
