“Fabulous!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Had a great stay at this b&b. Easy to get to the city on the tram which is close by. Hired bikes and rode around the city, which I highly recommend. Loved the breakfast. Was provided with lots of information about Amsterdam plus maps of the city. They even had DVDs for the guests to watch. Fabulous place. Thanks marieke!

We spent two nights at this B&B. Bernard was on holiday, so his sweet sister was our host. We arrived from the cruise port, via Tram 9 dropped off our luggage and set off to see the sites. When we returned mid-afternoon Marika (I hope I've spelled this correctly) met with us and ensured we could operate the cable TV system, pointed out a small guest kitchenette, gave us on overview on the neighborhood. Before dinner, we hopped across the street for a relaxing stroll through the park to increase our appetites.

The room itself was spacious, the bed comfortable, the shower HOT and hard. If I had complaints about the room it would be the low lighting level in the bathroom. Our room faced the front of the building, but we were not disturbed by traffic or street noise. After stays in various small hotels during our stay, I really appreciated that our room was virtually at street level, only a handful of steps to deal with. As others have commented the breakfast is over the top. We too made sandwiches for lunch from our leftovers. We also thought having juice available in the mini-frig was a nice touch. Because we had an early flight, Marika secured a taxi for us and prepared a breakfast for us the night before our departure...great service.

The location of the B&B is a mixed blessing. Although, one needs to take the tram or public transportation to access the sites, it is away from the noise, trash and congestion of the tourist areas. The neighborhood is residential, with mixture of ethnicities..

What a find! everything about this place is great. When we arrived we were greeted by Bernard & Martijne and after being shown to our room,they pointed out on the map the best place to park and gave us lots of information on the local trams, and even sold us tickets to use on the trams, which was very handy, the trams stopped at either end of their street. The location is convenient for local shops, bars and resturants, we took their recommendation on two evenings and both times the food was great. The breakfast is delicious and there was enough to take out for a midday snack. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The five minute tram ride was a small price to pay for being in a small oasis away from the noise and bustle on Amsterdam centre. We would stay again.

Excellent, can not fault! Fabulous service, excellent room & breakfast. Would almost certainly go back. The location is in the south, but this suited us. The transport system is great. We stayed in the garden room. This is ideal for two travellers. Spacious with en suite and a lovely conservatory room where breakfast is served. Lots of of information booklets, and toiletries available in the room... Even a laptop with wifi. Brilliant b&b and great service.

Despite the rain, we had a great time in Amsterdam thanks to this nice and cozy B&B. Their owners were very friendly and helpful as well. It's located in a quiet neighbourhood, opposite a beautiful park and well connected to the city center by tram. Our room was amazing and comfortable, not only the size but also the furniture. Finally, we could enjoy the garden and the rain while we were having breakfast. I strongly recommend this accommodation without a doubt. One of my favourites.

Host family Martijne and Bernard are very enthusiastic and helpful, who genuinely care about their guests. We stayed in the garden room and can sleep like a baby after touring for a day. The place is very spacious and comfortable if you choose to spend more time there. Breadfast is delicious and plentiful. If you have an average appetite, you can pack a picnic lunch with it, too. Frequent trams take to the dam area in 5-10 minutes. If you do not buy a travel pass, walking time about is about 20 minutes. Safe neighborhood even when late at night. Supermarket is only a couple of blocks away. You can buy salad and tasty pasta to be heated by either the oven or microwave. Good value for money.

We stayed at this great B&B, in the Garden Room, over a weekend in July. Martijne and Bernard were flexible on arrival times which was really helpful and took away from our stress of driving into Amsterdam. Once there, we were helped with directions to the P&R, which was just a 10 min bus ride down the road. Breakfast was wonderful and plentiful! Something different every day. The room itself was spacious and comfortable. Wifi worked really well and bathroom was fully equipped with all you need. Location was a good 15-20 minute walk out of the "center" area, but otherwise everything is pretty accessible via bus or tram. We enjoyed our stay and would return for another visit to Amsterdam!
