We had stormy weather in Amsterdam and it was always a pleasure to come back to this cosy place. It is an appartment with everything that you need. Grete is a very host that thinks about all the little things that make you feel home. Centrally located in Jordaan with many good restaurants nearby.

Prior to our stay we had communicated with Greet and Niels and had already received helpful suggestions about our visit to Amsterdam. This helpful information continued during our stay. The apartment is spotless and quiet and equipped so many thoughtful "extras". They have excellent bikes to rent but the apartment is an easy walk to restaurants, tourist areas or buses.... More

I have reviewed Amphora previously and endorse all the comments but must just add something else. We arrived in Amsterdam after a gruelling 10 hour journey from the French Alps only to find due to a technical glitch on my part our hotel was over booked. With 3 teenage children in tow we found ourselves on Easter Saturday with no... More

We enjoy staying in B&Bs when we travel and this was a great one. It is a very comfortable studio on the ground floor so no problem with those charming Amsterdam stairs. The location is ideal. It is walking distance to every thing you'll want to see but in a quiet beautiful residential neighborhood away from the busy tourist areas.... More

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.
