We stayed here for three nights and although the room was reasonably clean and cheap, overall, I found this place unacceptable. Dave a.k.a. Sasha himself lives on the top floor of the house. When we arrived, he greeted us and charged another 5% "taxes" on our booking. According to the website where we had booked the room, however, taxes were... More

Booked via hostel bookers, but had direct contact with 'Sasha' before arriving to confirm arrival dates and times - at this point all seemed OK. When we arrived things rapidly went down hill. They wanted more money for the room than we had been quoted and became very pushy about us handing it over. They also did not have the... More

Sasha's B & B was brilliant. We only stayed the one night my girlfriend and i in a lovely spacious room that had an en suite shower and a huge spacious bed. The room is very good for those people on a budget, in the whole of central Amsterdam to have a double room with a private bathroom from my... More

Stayed here for one night. It was a bit difficult to find the entrance and there was no one there when we arrived. Had to call a number then the man came to let us in. The room was clean, lovely bed,, flatscreen tv. Curtains let in a bit of light and the traffic from the street could be heard... More

We booked this B&B because it was centrally located and was on a par price-wise with most good hostels in the centre of Amsterdam. Location wise it was excellent for a short break as it was 20 mins walk from Dam Square and 10 mins walk from Rembrant Square with a tram stop right outside the front door. However, we... More

Nice clean place in a good location of the city, walking distance to many places including rembrandt square. However it was very small, like many other places in Amsterdam but the house keeper was professional and our place was clean with no disturbance. It is on a main street so noise from outside if you don't mind. Winding staircase. The... More

Words can not describe how bad this hotel was. Before arrival, we were contacted by the hotel and asked to meet at a set time in light of the fact that hotel has no front desk. Unfortunately in spite of us being their on time, no one from the hotel turned up to meet us and thus were left in... More

It's easy to miss this B&B (or should I say "B") as it is not really signed at all! There is only a Large wooden door as you walk down the street! This started me off with the giggles, then the never ending staircase made me completely hysterical! It seemed to wind up and up never stop! Dont pack heavy... More

December 2009. Got the room on the top floor with own bathroom. It is clean, pretty large for Amsterdam standards, sufficient light. Slept very well for two days and heard no noise from other people or the outside. TV, fridge, lights, shower, heating, all worked fine. The staircase is still being worked on(no carpet in the upper part), but who... More

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
