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

I booked my stay with the owner operator Sal over the Internet via email. He told me that we had a room for April 28 - May 1, 2013 and he would update his calendar with our booking. He quoted us 405$ for the 3 nights which I thought was reasonable. My husband and I were excited because we will... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights here at the beginning of our 4 weeks in Europe. We arrived on an early flight from Australia and were able to drop our bags off until we could check in- this was really appreciated as it allowed us to get our bearings and have a bit of a look around the area... More
