Great place. Old high ,narrow Dutch apartment. Room was at top and well appointed. No tv nor radio nor wifi-wonderfull! Great en suite and friendly owners who gave great restaurant and attractions advice. Book now! Downside-you have to be able to climb stairs but as long as you can go up a flight -you can cope, and it's worth it.... More

This is a long overdue review as my husband and I stayed at Sunhead in May 2013! However my parents just asked for the name of the b&b and it reminded me I never left a review of this wonderful place! The b&b is in a perfect location on the canal near the centre, anne frank museum and lots of... More

Sunhead is a beautiful little place with an excellent location - close to lots of amenities but not too close to the red light district. The room was very cosy and individual with a real eye for detail. The owners were very welcoming and informative and always on hand to give information and recommendations. I particularly enjoyed meeting the owner's... More

My wife and I stayed here recently at very short notice for two nights. We had a very nice room (the Tulip Room) right at the top of this very narrow house, literally in the rafters, overlooking the canal. We had a very nice welcome from the a housesitter and the owners were lovely when they returned from a trip... More

if you, like us, paid a premium to have a lovely breakfast and meet the hosts and guests, forget it. We paid as if it were included, only to find on our arrival that it is no longer. No prior warning, no refund. If I'd known this was going to be the case, I would have changed my reservation to... More

Dear Guest, I am so sorry to hear you were not happy to stay with us. We feel we have made it very clear in all our correspondence and on all websites that we could reach and above all in our confirmation letter, that we do not serve breakfast in our place any longer. Fortunately we have a wonderful breakfast... More

Awesome location, great hosts, relaxing stay. My brother and I stayed in the top floor back room (no view of the canal) but it didn't matter. The room was very quiet, perfect for resting after a day out in city, Amsterdam marathon, electro/house music gigs, etc. Carlos and Rolf-Jan are expert hosts and do a great job of relating to...

Tasteful decoration in the rooms which are spotlessly clean and spacious. Beds are very comfortable and fixtures are mostly new. Nice modern plumbing. Canal view rooms are best but even the loft room in the back is nice (just no view). Hosts Carlos and Rolfe are top notch. More than friendly, they go out of their way to help with... More

My husband and I just spent 6 nights at Sunhead of 1617 and were most pleased with our stay. The location is the best, right on a quiet canal, in a very nice neighborhood, within walking distance of everything. If you don"t want to walk you can catch a tram or jump-on-jump-off bus a block away. Our hosts, Carlos and... More

Sunhead of 1617 is a genuinely wonderful location right in the centre of Amsterdam. The rooms are furnished with an expert eye for tasteful style and comfort. A special mention has to be made of the hosts Carlos and Rolf-Jan. Both are incredibly friendly, always helpful and a great source of local info. Also Carlos' exquisite breakfasts are not to...

We traveled with another couple and stayed in the two front rooms. Both rooms were extremely clean and comfortable and had awesome views of the canal. Carlos and Rolfe were exceptional hosts and very knowledgable about Restaurants and museums. The Sunhead is very close to the Anne Frank museum and also to the trolley. The only drawback for some people... More
