Five of us stayed in the 5 beds-room for three nights. This b&b is easy to find and the living environment is generally good. Xaviera & Philip are very nice hosts and we had a warm stay in their house.

One of the highlights of our recent trip to Amsterdam was staying at the "Happy Sleeper" and the evening dinner and conversation with the Xaviera Hollander and her husband Philip. The accommodations were superb! We stayed in the newly renovated "Luxury Loft" on the second floor. This is an old, grand house, so the stairs were kind of steep going... More

It was a very spontaneous business trip to Amsterdam and I'm finally very happy about the choice to stay at "Xaviera Hollander's Happy House". Generally I love unconventional traveling and thats exactly what it was! after a short warm chat with the owners in the evening, everything was on track. I had a door key and I felt like home....

We had a great time with Madame Hollander and her husband Phillip. Art served us a great breakfast each morning and they all were great to talk to and for gathering advice on visiting Amsterdam in a fun and efficient way. Couldn't ask for more.

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
