Amsterdam is such a unique city, and Bees B&B is the ideal location to enjoy that experience. With guidance from Brigitte and Hans we walked and cruised throughout the city, visiting museums, enjoying concerts at local venues,sampling the local restaurants. We even traveled to Rotterdam by train, viewing the countryside during the hour-long trip and the unique architecture of Europe's... More

Very friendly guest. Warm welcome. Very helpful. The studio is very quiet and comfortable. Perfect location nearby everything. The breakfast is very good. The pizza close to the B&B is excellent and the pub too.

Bees B&B is the perfect place for a calm and greatly located B&B inside Amsterdam. You are in the heart of Amsterdam, close to everything and in a very calm environment. The place is perfectly located closed to the Anna Franck's house and so calm that you will not believe to be in the center of Amsterdam. The room is... More

Bees B&B is a lovely place in a great location on the Leliegracht Canal. The best pizzaria in Amsterdam is two doors down, and the excellent Restaurant de Luwte is right next door. The location is convenient to public transportation, and just about anything you need is within walking distance. The surrounding area is beautiful and quite safe. Hans &... More

Amsterdam is a charming city and Bees B&B is in a particularly lovely location. Situated on a small side canal between the Herengracht and Keizersgracht, it is quiet, peaceful and picturesque whilst still being close to restaurants, cafes, bars and also many sights. We found being close to stops on all three of the canal bus routes very useful and... More

We have had a really great time here! Bees B&B is located in an old, beautiful house at the Leliegracht. It's very central, just a 10 Minute-walk to the Dam Square, but also quiet and relaxing. Many other places and monuments to see around and the tram stop is nearby, also a canal cruise stop is just a few minutes-walk... More

What a fantastic location for a short stay in Amsterdam. We loved the area around Bees B&B so much. It's a perfect mix of beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing; with great places to eat, drink and chill out on it's doorstep. A short walk from the railway station, and the tourist areas of Dam Square and red light district, but tucked... More

Although we would agree the location of the apartment was good and Hans and Bridgette were accommodating, this was not a bed and breakfast. Yes, we received breakfast on a tray every morning but it was ALWAYS exactly the same and after a couple of days our cheese was dried out. Room was never straightened or cleaned. We did ask... More

Brigitte L, Owner at Bees B&B, responded to this review

We were rather surprised to see your comments on TripAdvisor. In general, guests choose a B&B in order to ensure more privacy during their stay. Therefore, unlike hotel services, bedrooms are not straightened or cleaned daily, unless especially requested. A daily change of linen and towels is also particular to hotel services. For stays longer than three days, we do... More

We spent 3 lovely days in May at Bees B&B. Loved the small apartment and all of the amenities. Every morning waking up to fresh fruit, rolls and perfectly boiled eggs was a wonderful way to start the day. Rented bikes (City Bikes) to get around and found the location to be superb. Good pizza next door and appreciated all... More
