Stayed for 4 days and 3 nights and everything was perfect. Family of four with 2 teenagers. The apartment was plenty of room for the 4 of us and my Son and I are both 6 feet tall and slept comfortably on the pullout couch. Greet spent time with us to make sure all of our questions were answered including... More

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at the Amphora Bed and Breakfast in the Jordaan area of Amsterdam. We highly recommend this lovely ground floor studio apartment and the even lovelier hosts, Greet and Niels. They anticipate every little thing a guest might need or want, from a bottle of wine, snacks, and stroopwaffels to maps, guidebooks, and... More

This delightful bed and breakfast has all the comforts of home in a cozy little space. Greet and her husband Niels are wonderful hosts. Located in the heart of the Jordaan neighborhood right on one of the famous Amsterdam canals, and within walking distance to just about everything in the city of Amsterdam, you won't find another like it. There... More

Not only the appartment itself but the position of canal house is impressive. We have spent 7 days in Amsterdam and we were more and more appreciating the Jordan neighbourhood where house is located. Majority of monuments are in walking distance but you can also rent a bike from Niels&Greet to fulfill the experience of Amsterdam, as the "city of... More

We loved this apartment in the heart of Amsterdam. It was close to everything we wanted to do, was very well equipped, and the 'bread basket' that was left each morning always had a pleasant surprise in it. In our case it was donuts! Greet and Niels were very good hosts and helped to make our stay very enjoyable.

We stayed at the Amphora Bed and Breakfast over Valentine's Day weekend (February 2014). Our experience was outstanding! Even before we arrived, the communication with Greet and Niels was outstanding. Things only got better upon our arrival as their attention to detail was spot on. The bed and breakfast is really amazing inside and out. The mosaics in the bathroom... More

We stayed in february and it was wonderful right from the start. Greet met us early because we needed to store our baggage prior to official check-in. She gave amazing advice on where to go to get food and entertainment. The apartment was very comfortable and felt just like our home. The location is perfect for wondering all around Amsterdam....
