“Perfect place to enjoy your stay in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2010


If you are looking for a quiet and cosy accomodation in Amsterdam, not very far from the city center, this is your place.

It is very well connected from the central train station. If you take bus number 43, you will arrive in 10 minutes.

Once you are in the B&B Borneo you will confirm that your choice was right, not only because of Milly and Nico's hospitality but because you will enjoy of a very comfortable room (private bathroom, access to you own terrace, fridge, microwave, TV, DVD, glasses, cups, plates, cutlery, coffee machine - Nespresso -> we loved it!).

They say it their website "YOUR HOME........AWAY FROM HOME........" and we can tell you this is not just an slogan, it is real. And, on the top of that, the breakfast they serve in you own room is amazing!!

Ellos dicen en su página web "TU HOGAR..... LEJOS DE TU HOGAR..." y nosotros te podemos asegurar que esto no es solo un slogan, es real. Y, además de todo esto, el desayuno que te sirven en tu propia habitación es increible!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2009

I always try to select private B&B`s when I travel, and this time I have booked a room at B&B BORNEO. How great it was! 9unfortunately, the first night was at a hotel, as B&B was not vacant, but the review of that skunky hotel will be another story...)

First: location. 12 minutes by bus from teh central station, in a very quiet residental area, fresh area, possibility to swim, if one wants to.

Second: the room. Separate room with ensuite bathroom and a big private open-aor terrace with armchairs and a table with chairs and lots of flowers - great way to have breakfast in the morning and to relax in the evening, which we did.

Third: the hosts - Milly and Nico. Where else would one find such amazing informal and kind attitude?? Milly and Nico are warm-hearted and very sociable, and it seemed that I have met them before.

4th: breakfast. This issue deserves a seperate review, I guess.... I bet if you try to find a better breakfast somewhere you`ll fail. yeah, I mean it. Delicious, various sorts of cheese, fruit (fresh pakistan papaya and strawberries.. mmmm.....)

If one ever decides to go to Amsterdam - do nt ohesitate to stay at borneo B&B, do not owaste your money for luxury hotels charging mainly for their trademark!
