I came across B&B Alexander on the Amsterdam B&B Association website. The location is excellent. Het Concertgebouw is right in the backyard and all the action (queues of patrons, orchestra movers, etc.) happening around there daily was very exciting for a performing arts fan like me. And there's Museumplein right across the road, where the van Gogh museum, Rijksmuseum and... More

This B&B was a wonderful find. Perfectly located for many of the city's museums, especially the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum. Janneke was a wonderful hostess, very helpful and pleasant. The room we had (the red room) was vast. The bathroom was not en suite but this was not a problem at all. The shared kitchen was very handy... More

Good place very near Consertgebouw and Museumplein. Janneke is a very good host, everithing was perfect! Ofcourse there are the for Amsterdam well-known steep stairs. But we 62 and 63 managed this without problems. The breakfast was great! Bus 197 from Schiphol Airport is stopping in front of Concertgebouw at the De Lairessestraat.

Janneke's lovely home is perfectly located for easy walking around Amsterdam. We had a spacious room on top floor, up 2 very steep staircases. We had use of a convenient kitchen area on that floor, with refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, hot water kettle, and service wear. Breakfast was an elegant and tasty experience in Janneke's lovely dining room overlooking her... More

We really enjoyed this b and b. Janneke is a delight. We loved the location near the museums and the concert hall. Great restaurants nearby as well. Wonderful Dutch breakfast. The room was large, bright. Terrific classical music on the TV was an added plus. Would highly recommend this beautiful Amsterdam house.

What a wonderful place and gracious hostess! Janneke was friendly and helpful, and breakfast included her excellent home-made jam. Her home is beautiful, a block away from Amsterdam's excellent public transportation, and five minutes on foot from the Van Gogh museum. The room was very clean and big enough to host a party in, and a kitchenette was also available.... More

Friendly hostess. Excellent breakfast in a beautiful room. Good location near van Gogh-, Rijks- & Stedelijk Museum and public transportation. Direct bus from and to the airport (197) The private bathroom of our room is not in, but next to the room. So you have to be a little bit dressed if you have to go to the loo. The... More

We stayed at this B&B for two nights and it was a nice stay. The location is great for walking to the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum and it is an easy tram or bus ride into the more central part of town. The room we stayed in was spacious and had an ensuite bathroom. The bed was not... More

What a wonderful place to stay! Fabulous and convenient location, luxury comforts including cozy robes, use of a little kitchen area - fridge, microwave, etc., and extensive delicious breakfasts!
