5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Staying at Lieve Nachten was like staying with friends, though we'd never met our hosts before! The house is a loved family home with treasures from around the globe, I literally couldn't stop looking and admiring the architecture, the decor and the furniture. We booked a large room with our two teenage daughters who slept up the step ladder on the mezzanine, it was cosy and fun. The decor was simple, cool and very clever. We loved having access to the library and the endless information available to us about the area.
Though initially I was concerned that staying slightly outside the city of Amsterdam may dampen the thrill of being there, I couldn't have been more wrong. It was great to find this new area, with it's fantastic modern architecture. After spending all day in the city it was a pleasure to arrive back on the tram to this great place and sit outside the local bar/restaurant (just down the road) and watch local children play in the street and swim in the lake.
Our hosts were delightful, breakfast was delicious, we loved the house and the area and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We were so happy to stumble upon Lieve Nachten B&B. The artistic b&b was the perfect place for us to relax after spending the day in city center. Beautiful rooms, comfortable beds, fantastic staff, and AMAZING food!

Oh, and a bath tub that I could have spent all day in.

Don't miss out on the organic breakfast, Kitty's cooking will blow your mind.

We were a group of 6, ranging in age from 16 to mid-50's. The stay at Lieve Nachten is like being invited into the owner's private space. The front door is open, the kitchen is open - and its true, breakfast is wonderful. We stayed for 5 days and breakfast was different every day - as was the music. Classical in nature, but ranging from opera to spiritual type chants.

The dining room features large chairs from Ghana with a wonderful electic collection of artefacts and cloths' throughout the house. The architecture of the house is wonderfully different and the bright orange bottom half and upper half finished in wood fits perfectly. The house is built in several levels and even has a large library with a good collection of books.

Bedrooms are individually furnished - again with interesting interiors. Beds are comfortable with quality linen. My bed was on the floor on solid portable bases (2x) with 2 x other single beds in the room. Bathrooms are basic, but what more do you need!

From the house its a short walk to a wonderful local restaurant with dishes not usually found on the average menu. A tram station - +/- 300m from the house, will take you into central Amsterdam. If you stay out late in the city, there's a bus that travels a similar route as the tram - the owners adivsed us on all types of sites, restaurants and places of interest.

This is a place for people that wish to stay in a homely environment away from the usual sterile hotel room. We wanted to make a picnic and asked whether they could bake us one of their delicious breads. At breakfast our special home baked picnic bread was waiting.

Thank you for a wonderful stay - from all of us

we live in the area of b&b lieve nachten and made reservations for 3 rooms for 1 night to accomodate a few guests for our wedding.
the booking was made early july, and was confirmed by the owners.
they congratulated us on the wedding...
today to our surprise we received a mail stating the bookings were all cancelled because they were blocking the international reservations that were made. we found out very easily these reservations were made yesterday night.

no appologies, no help to find different lodgings, nothing. plus all of a sudden they had a rule they never acoomodate for ONE night..... this is not mentioned on any of the websites they are liked to , but at least now you know.

so if you have made a reservation for one night or perhaps 2, don't be surprised if the confirmed booking will be cancelled without any reason.
there may be a guest staying longer, which in their eyes is more important.

conclusion: Lieve nachten bed and breakfast is not to be trusted with their reservations.

The B&B is situated on an artificial island, which is just a short ride from the Centraal Station by tram no. 26. You will find there the best examples of modern Dutch architecture, including houses built on water. There is a small grocery on the street. The B&B itself is a wooden house with a small garden. The rooms are big and comfortable (comfy beds) and mainly beautifully furnished! You just feel really good and relaxed. There is free wifi. Didn`t try the organic breakfast (10 euros). I think you can also borrow or hire bicycles. The couple who run the hotel is very pleasant. There is no problem in arranging individually your check-in and check-out.
