We have a very nice stay at Xaviera Hollander's Happy House. The chalet was a perfect place for our weekend in Amsterdam. Everything is close to the center (walkingtime 15 minutes) and the bus/tram only 2 minutes walk! Breakfast is ok and we have a very nice talk with Xaviera, she's lovely and very interested. Thanks for our pleasant stay... More

I was in Amsterdam for work. The proximity of the exhibit hall and the warm welcome of the B&B made the stay very pleasant. The convivial breakfast allowed me to meet other professionals. The B&B is in a quite neighborhood. Nights are quite. A good restaurant is nearby.

I always like real live experiences. Hence my stage theatre business I booked the Happy House and got what I was looking for. Philip and Xaviera were joyeus and down to earth people, whom made me feel comfortable as soon as I arrived. The place is alive and the room was clean and tidy. So thanks for a pleasant stay....

I booked two nights at this B&B mainly because tripadvisor tags it as free parking. Well- IT IS NOT !!! They charge 30 Euro per day ! More important- When I arrived they informed me that they accept only cash. I did not have any, and they instructed me to the nearest cash machine. Quote from their email following correspondence...

We stayed here as our original accommodation fell through. We stayed in the 4 bed loft apartment and this was fantastic!! True value for money. Although in the south of the Dam, taxis only cost 10 euros at night to get back, and there are regular trams during the day. Once out though you are out for the day so... More

Nice place, very quiet, with good possibilities to reach the city-centre anytime. Very good atmosphere and recommended to only French-speaking tourists because Xaviera fluently speaks French. German is also a good possible way of communication.
