Having visited Amsterdam many times before on numerous business trips, I’d never managed to be present around ‘Queensday’ which is celebrated each year at the end of April. My English friends kept telling me for years how I missed out on this event. Apparently there was so much to do and see, music and dance in the street as well... More

The photos of the B n B shown in advertising are completely misleading. We had booked for 8 nights, but left after one night. The house is completely disheveled, run down and untidy. There is no en suite, only a shared bathroom and the owner's clutter is everywhere throughout the house . There were used towels on the back of... More

After 2 hours she took us to a apartment of her boyfriend and made us stay in... More

We spend our time 3 nights in the chalet garden, it was a unbelievable romantic flare. All was perfect. Xaviera and Philip are the kindest people in Amsterdam, they´ll help you and they´ll give you great advises. Good location 15min to Amsterdam Centralstation via tram.

I stayed in this apartment in November (Van Gogh). We were 4 young girls from the Czech Republic. We came to Amsterdam for only 3 days; the reason of our visit was a concert of our favorite American musician, who did not come to our country, so we decided to travel to see him. We go on trips like this... More

We stayed in Amsterdam for a friend’s birthday party in the area, and found by coincidence Xaviera's B&B. Secretly reading the Happy Hooker book in my childhood, made us decide to book a night at the B&B with an opportunity to meet the Madame in person. We had not expected to get such a warm welcome from Xaviera and her... More

Seemed ok on arrival but soon descended into the night from hell! We had the chalet in the garden which seemed nice at first, arrived in evening so didnt get to see much of outside. We put our bags down in the room and had a cuppa before going out, when we arrived back in the middle of the night... More

We chose to stay at Xaviera's B&B because my partner had read some of her books and wanted to meet her. We stayed during the very cold snowy spell but were beautifully warm in 'Goliath'. The house is colourful and full of worldwide momentos and a landing full of scarves.... We had excellent continental breakfasts and were pleased to be... More

My newly wed wife and I stayed at Xaviera's and discovered an extremely disorganized utterly repulsive home. The filth of the home was an outcry to any persons standards. I walked to the bathroom in the morning and discovered dog feces on the way to the bathroom. She would not let us cancel our last two nights, so we booked... More
