I stayed for 5 nights at B&B Helmers and throughly enjoyed my stay. My room was very clean, the kitchenette was well stocked with cheese, eggs, tomatoes, yogurt, strawberries and more plus fresh croissants and bread every morning left outside the room door in a bread box. Odette is a wonderful host who recommended places to visit and restaurants and... More

B & B Helmers is a treasure to behold. I have always trusted Trip Advisor reviews for my travel and this exceeded my expectations. The location was perfectly tucked onto a quiet side street in an upscale neighborhood. You are close to the center of everything Amsterdam has to offer dand the tram literally stops right outside your door. The... More

Helmers B&B was the perfect Amsterdam experience!!! Yes it is on the TOP floor of an Amsterdam row house (about 70 steps with 2 landings to catch your breath) - but well worth the sunset views!! ( I am 70 and in pretty good shape, I just took my time:))! I was in the Vermeer Room- recently renovated with a... More

The hosting during our stay was spot on. Odette was incredibly friendly and helped us to find our way around, recommend attractions and was easily contactable. Cannot fault Odette, even carrying our luggage up to the room and being constantly smiley and friendly. We were put in the Vermeer room, which was very clean and though small, it definitely made...

I am sorry to hear your friend hurt his finger. If you would have informed me whilst you were here I could have fixed the problem for you. Indeed we provide breakfast set-up in the fridge for two days, which we do mention quite clearly upon check in. Most guests actually seem to have sufficient with what we set up,... More

My friend and I stayed three nights at the BNB Helmers and we could not be more pleased with our choice to stay here. Odette helped us with everything from booking to detailed instructions on how to get to her place. The tram was easy to take and dropped us off not even a block from the BNB. On arrival... More

We found this B&B perfect and with a lot of attractions within walking distance. The rooms are rather small and the stairs to the third floor are steep. But if you don’t mind this, you have found a perfect place for some days in wonderful Amsterdam. The host, Odette is very friendly, easy to communicate with and gives a nice... More

B&B Helmers is in the walking distance to the downtown, many museums and a nice park. Our apartment was very comfortable and clean. The kitchen was well equipped. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. They gave us many tips about the city and they were always available when needed. We had a great time staying there and we would... More

Not so well impressed on the welcome and the cordiality of the owners. Reading the review I expected a lot more. Not rude but nothing special... The owner asked us to tell her when we will be arrived so she can welcome us but she wasn't waiting for us although I told her our arrival time. The apartment was really... More

We have just returned from 3 fabulous nights at Helmers. We chose the B&B based upon Tripadvisor reviews and are just so glad that we did! Location is spot on - 5 minutes walk to the museum district and 10 minutes to the 9 streets area (Anne Frank House). Getting here was easy too - there are tram stops outside.... More
