Staying in Xaviera and Phillip's was very pleasant. I felt very welcomed and looked after while staying there. In contrast to the busy streets of Amsterdam center, this place is located at Amsterdam south and it's very quiet and it's only a short walk to the Museumplein. I highly recommend Xaviera and Phillip's B&B.

I had a very comfortable couple of days at Xaviera and Phillip's. I felt very well looked after and welcomed into their home, and enjoyed the sociable and relaxed atmosphere. The B&B is quite a long way south of the station, but it is only a short walk from some premier attractions such as Museumplein. Although not cheap accommodation -... More

Staying in Amsterstam at any other place would not be the same. Phillip & Xaviera have provided a home away from home and make you feel very welcome and comfortable from the moment you walk in the door. My room had been very recently renovated which was great to experience the new bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette. Breakfasts are tasty and... More

Xaviera and her husband are very welcominig! They ensure that you feel at ease and at home. The room is comfortable, the bed is excellent! They helped us out with travelling trough the city (which was very easy!) They live very close near the citycenter of Amsterdam, but on a very quiet street.

We very much liked our stay at the B&B at the garden house of Xaviera Hollander. It was cosy and everything you need was there, like a water cooker, fridge, TV and a very good bathroom. The beds are fine. Amsterdam was super. There is so much to see that we will be back some day. I can recommend this... More

Xaviera and Philip are very friendly and helpfull. A warm welcome in their cosy home. The B&B is very close to the city centre (less than 5 minute tram ride). Comfortable room and excellent bed. Breakfast was delicious. If you are looking for a cosy stay with friendly easygoing people choose Xaviera Hollander's Happy House instead of a hotel. They... More

Very friendly welcome, extremely helpful people, excellent position wonderfully connected to the city centre and to Schiphol Airport. And if you are in Amsterdam on business at the Rai, it's the perfect choice for your stay. One of the rooms of the apartment we stayed in is very small, but if you have children they will love it!!!

Xaviera and Philip were wonderful hosts. This is their home so the eclectic mix of furniture and books they have collected, or written, made it homely and very cosy. Breaky was on a large round communal dining table which we shared with Xaviera and Philip plus two other guests. They bent over backwards to offer a sumptuous and hearty start... More

We spent 3 nights here at Xaviera Happy House in late July 2013. The house itself has a lot of character and is a great introduction when arriving in Amsterdam. The breakfasts were very nice and relaxed out in the courtyard area, and the cooks were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, in a very nice part of... More
