My friend and I stayed in Bibies' two bedroom apartment, which is located directly across the street from Bibi's personal apartment. Bibi and Joop are the most accommodating and welcoming people to stay with, who really created a home away from home for us throughout our stay. When we asked for their recommendations or directions, they were willing and eager to help us. When we expressed interest in visiting some museums, they lent us their museum passes for free admission. When the hot water did not work, Bibi allowed us to shower in another unit that they own (that had hot water). When we inquired about an internet cafe, Bibi allowed us to visit the other unit (again) where we could use the internet (for free!).

The apartment that we stayed in consisted of a living room (with a table and chairs, a small television, and a futon bed). Attached to living room was a kitchen, which contained an oven/microwave, a refrigerator, a dishwasher, a sink, and a stove that had to be lit by a match. Joop was kind enough to fill our kitchen with the included breakfast, which consisted of bread, butter, jelly, ham, cheese, yogurt, orange juice, and fruit. The bedroom had two hostel-sized beds pushed together and a closet area. Attached to the bedroom was a bathroom that had a shower, sink, and mirror. Overall, the apartment was small but cozy.

The location of the room was excellent, as it was located on a quiet street adjacent to many sites and activities. The Heineken Brewery, a farmer's market, a canal cruise, a square filled with restaurants and bars, and the museum district are all within walking distance. Everything else is very accessible by tram.

I would highly recommend Bibies BB to anyone visiting Amsterdam. If I ever return to Amsterdam, I will be sure to stay with them again!

This B&B is a 2 bedroom apartment, with a good kitchen, living room and bathroom. Everything is very clean and well maintained. I stayed in the front room for 2 nights. The room is great, huge, the bed is very confortable and there is a good wardrobe. During the first night there was another couple in the other room, but we met them just 2 times. The other night we stayed alone in the apartment.
I loved the flexibility in Bibies. They left all the food for your breakfast and you can prepair it when you want and how you want. There were juice, milk, several jams, butter, breads, eggs, cheese, jam, fruits, cereals, tea and coffe. Perfect!
There is a laptop with free acces to internet and 2 guides about the city.
The location is very good, a beutifull and quiet street very close to Van Gogh Museum and Heineken. There are several restaurant nearby and 2 trams (16 and 24) to go to downtown.
My flight back home was late in the day and I could stay in the apartment until 6 pm!
I really enjoy my stay at Bibies and for sure would stay there again!

We've just returned from a few days' break in Amsterdam with two boys aged 10 and 13.
Stayed in BIbies B&B in the "Latin quarter" of Amsterdam. Must say that the apartment was absolutely brilliant for our needs: clean, spacious, comfortable with a kitchen which enabled us to cater for our family's culinary needs (mostly breakfast and supper one evening.) Bibi and Joop are absolutely lovely and are accommodating without being intrustive, and happy to give warm friendly tips on the best places to visit. It almost felt like staying at a friend's house, though both owners live down the street!
The location is fab - just round the corner from Van Gogh museum and Rijks museum, in a safe bohemian neighbourhood. Try Quinto's for a nice relaxing place for a drink or a bite to eat.
Overall, we have no hesitation in saying that if you are looking for a really nice apartment in a great spot, then Bibi's is well worth a visit.

We have stayed a period of time in Bibi's Bed and Breakfast. BiBi said every thing's just round the corner. Thats a fact. Round the corner from Rijks Museum, and Museum Plein with the Van Gough. Concert hall. A tram ride from De Dam. Walks to Holland Casino, Canal Boats of all kinds, day and night. Yes even Quinto Bar and Restaurant, below the 3Friends Restaurant. What ever you are looking for in Amsterdam, in the Pipe Ask Bibi, she has a wealth of information. Sharing in a set of two bedroom sharing kitchen shower toilet was no problems. We met German, English, Dutch, French, Italian, us New Zealanders were in our element, in comfort, and had a great time there. Age made no difference. I even got to paint Art. In a Holland of Galleries, just walk down the road and round the corner. Also the Heineken Horses, parade each Day with their Beer Cart. Wonderful to see in a city so full of life. From two Kiwi, to all humans who want the adventure of Just Around the Corner.

Amsterdam, Bibies B&B
29 th December 2008
We were so in despair because we had planned the trip to Amsterdam in october, bought the train tickets, and the B&B we'd choosen and made reservation with told us a week before Chrismas that the room was now rented to someone else. We phoned a lot of other B&Bs and were lucky to find Bibi had one of her two rooms free for the two nights we needed a place to stay. She immediately confirmed our reservation and was already waiting for us at the house when we said we would arrive. The room was very nice and had a double bed and an extra bed in it. The dining room divided the two bedrooms. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. The refrigerator was full, we could make our own coffee or select from the variety of teas. Bibi was very helpful with giving us an orientation where we could go. Since it was very cold at the time we were in Amsterdam we were happy we could come back at anytime to this lovely place and feel at home. Specially Bibi with her kind heart, who we knew we could contact anytime for help and her being right around the corner, and the sweet couple we shared the apartment with made us feel like visiting friends. We are sure to come back soon again.

Last summer we spend a few days in Amsterdam, in B&B's Bed and breakfast. It was our first time in B&B's and we didn't know what to expect, but we had a great time! The apartment is located in a very colorful neighborhood and in walking distance of all the interesting paces in Amsterdam.

The place was very comfortable. The sleeping and eating arrangements were wonderful. We had a great breakfast and our kids loved their personal cabinets (and folded their clothes for the first time in their lives).

We hope very much to have the opportunity to visit B&B's again, meet the friendly hostess, and enjoy her hospitality again!
