We spent two nights in Sunhead of 1617 at the beginning of april 2014. It's so close to central station and to everything you would like to see in Amsterdam; you can consider just walk everywhere. Sunhead it's friendly and Carlos it's a great host. Breakfast it's delicious; you have to ask nothing because Carlos cooks everything you would need... More

Carlos and Roelf-Jan are the nicest and most welcoming hosts imagineable, Carlos' breakfasts are great, and the rooms, especially the gable Tulip room where we slept, are very charming. Add to that a fantastic location on the Herengracht canal, and there's no wonder we'd reccommend Sunhead1617 to anybody!

Sunhead of 1617 is clean, the tulip room is spacious and relaxing, and the breakfast is delicious. Carlos and Rolf treated us as first-class guests. Once we booked our room, we received an email with links to fun places in Amsterdam which helped with planning a fantastic trip. We usually stay in hotels, but this place looked so nice and... More

We spent two nights in two different rooms and they were both just wonderful. The hostel is very close to the center, in the middle of the Grachten-Quarter. Its obvious that the two hosts have a lot of travel-experience, everything is just perfect!

Amazing! Fantastic position by Herengracht canal and easy to walk around central Amsterdam. A very lovely, comfortable, spotless ensuite room with a view over the canal. Carlos and Roelf are lovely and are seriously some of the best hosts we have come across! The most delicious breakfasts whilst socialising with the other guests and at the same time Carlos can...

We had two lovely nights at Sunhead. Carlos and Roelf were great hosts - friendly, interesting and helpful. The house is so interesting and in an excellent location. We had the Tulip room on the top floor, which was comfortable, with a good view of the canal and very clean. The delicious breakfast beats a hotel meal any day -... More

My husband and I stayed at this B&B for two nights, but we wish we could have stayed longer! Sunhead of 1617 surpassed all our expectations. The breakfast was beyond amazing, the location was perfect, and the hosts were lovely. We loved chatting with Carlos in the morning over breakfast! We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great time at this amazing bed & breakfast, certainly lived up to expectations and reviews. We stayed in the Tulip room, an experience of exposed beams, cosy furnishings and interesting decorations, with bonus views of the canal. Carlos and Rolf are excellent hosts and very accommodating, especially helpful with information prior to visit. Both mornings of our stay we looked... More

This B&B is everything you could wish for, clean, comfortable beds, and centrally located so you can access all the Amsterdam sites. When you read reviews from other travellers you just hope they are accurate. In the case of Sunhead they are more than accurate. I would recommend this B&B to all my friends who visit Amsterdam. Carlos and Roelf... More
