We stayed here right after they had opened, and weren't even able to stay the first night of our reservation due to a late flight in. When we showed up the next morning, the staff were more than apologetic, upgraded our room, and we ate and drank for free at the Toon restaurant next door for the rest of our... More

The location is on the corner of Herengracht, one of the nicest canals, and Utrechtstraat, so it is close to restaurants and cafes in Rembrandtplein, and a short walk from the Rijksmuseum or Dam Square, and about 20 mins walk from Central Station. B&B 1657 consists of five floors with an office on the first floor and then a room... More

My husband and I spent 4 nites here. Prior to leaving home - we exchanged several emails with the B&B and they were very helpful with directions (tram and to walk), where to park etc... We also received an email from them a day before our stay that Hotel Toon, where we were to have breakfast was under renovation, but... More

Sal and Els have the formula just right. Good communication and directions prior to arrival. Friendly welcome. Nicely done room and bathroom with ever-changing scene from the window. Great cafe (Toon) also owned by them for breakfast - have what you like. Free minibar, nuts, sweets, coffee-table books. Very good location for access throughout Amsterdam. Would definitely come here again.

When my husband and I first arrived to the B&B, we were in love with its decor - a bit rustic yet modern and cozy. The breakfast was good in the mornings and was prepared for us no matter what time we would come to eat. From other reviews, we were prepared that our bathroom would be on the other... More

Besides a little confusion upon arrival, as it is not clearly marked as a B&B, it was a wonderful stay. The team here really had a nice presentation and made everything comfortable during my two nights in Amsterdam! Great morning breakfast, tasteful and modern bathroom and bedroom furnishing, with views of Herengracht canal. Starbucks is around the corner, and easy... More

Really enjoyed our stay at BB1657. Customer service was excellent, we were contacted via email just after booking to explain check in, on arrival in Amsterdam we contacted the owner with our arrival time and was met at the house. Its not obvious that the house is a B&B but as we were met there it wasn't a problem. The... More

This B&B is a traditional canal house, made into a charming B&B. I was taken with the effort made in modernizing the bathrooms and the simplicity yet comfort of the room furnishings. The breakfast was excellent; fresh orange juice, pastries, eggs, and yoghurt. The stairs are very steep, but Else helped us get our more than ordinary amount of luggage... More
