Me and My wife we spent five days in Amphora B&B. I considered this B&B a good place to stay as they have only one room, so you will not find any other tourists in the house, just you and the local neighbors. The B&B is very well located within walking distance to the main attractions and the tram station.... More

We stayed in this beautiful little apartment for four nights with our daughter (15). It was perfectly located, well equipped, and cleverly designed, so that it never felt cramped or compromised. The thoughtful details that other reviews have mentioned made for a perfect balance of hospitality and independence, which we all enjoyed very much. I would certainly stay again, and... More

This B&B is fantastic, the hosts are incredibly welcoming and go out of their way to ensure a pleasant stay. The room is extremely comfortable, very well stocked and the location impeccable - the main parts of Amsterdam are all in walking distance. Will surely return to the Amphora next time I am in Amsterdam.

The location was great, as it was walking distance to the center and the major museums. But if you don't like walking, the tram stop was only one street over. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and it was a super-quiet area when we were there in the first part of January 2015. The owners are sweet and provide many things... More

Visited for my wife's 50th birthday, having found this beautiful flat quite by accident (and I have been coming to Amsterdam for years). Easily in the top 2 B&Bs I have ever stayed in (the other is in Yorkshire), and we do a lot of travelling. Located on a canal in the Jordaan area, this B&B (or rather ground-floor flat)... More

Perfect oasis for our family in between all the sightseeing. Right in the centre of a lovely Jordan area. Beautifully cared for. Very helpful and friendly owners who really care about your stay. All the other reviews were spot on.

An oasis in the hectic city of Amsterdam. Loved it! Very trendy apartment. Warm welcome with a real kerststol and a bottle of wine and nuts. Appreciate it. Lots of room, perfect location, close to tram and within walking distance of the major attractions. This place makes you feel a local. Both Greet and Niels are very helpful with any... More

Another visit to this wonderful city, and naturally - again - stayed at Amphora B&B. Great hospitality, beautiful appartment, well equipped, clean, cozy and pleasant. The appartment is suitable for vacation or a buisness trip, the location is central and the neighborhood is charming- lot's of caffe's and resturants, beautiful streets and canals, and it is close to public transport....

After reading all the great reviews and feedback about the Amphora B&B the choice was very easy to us. You cannot go wrong with this B&B, everything is perfect and well designed. There is nothing short or missing – maps and literature about Amsterdam, towels and toiletries, umbrellas and raincoats (believe me you'll need them..) and of course the wonderful... More

We can't say enough about what a wonderful experience it was to stay at Amphora and to have the chance to meet Greet and Nils, the owners. I can't think of anything they could have done to make the visit better. The info they provided with the entry code meant that we were able to show up at a convenient... More
