“FANTASTIC PLACE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Double Dutch in September for 3 nights, and it was better than we ever expected.

It was our first trip to Amsterdam but definately wont be our last!

Double Dutch was just brilliant in every way, the location was PERFECT . It is in a lovely square which has some great places to eat and some great bars at night but isnt too busy so we didnt hear any noise.

We stayed in the top room of Double Dutch and it was beautiful.
The stairs were tight but we knew they would be and it wasnt a problem.
It was very clean and the towels were made into swans on the bed which was a lovely touch.
The bathroom was small but just what we needed and the shower was great.

When we arrived we were welcomed with open arms, we got a free map which the lovely host showed us the best restaurants/bars/shopping/sightseeing around which we thought was very nice of him.

Amsterdam is an amazing city and our stay was made even more special because of us staying at the Double Dutch.

We are going back to Amsterdam next year and we will be booking to stay here again!!

We spent months lookining for places to stay for our trip and I can honestly say there is nothing bad about this place.

We had an amazing time and we really hope you take this review into account and have as good a time as we did :-)

P.S- And to who ever complained about a cat living in the Double Dutch is just pathetic. The cat is lovely and doesnt bother you but greets you when you come in and was very friendly.

it was great. Typical small multiple flight of Ne stairs, otherwise GREAT. We had the loft unit. Loved it. The guest host who lives there was very nice and gratious. He said the other Barangay place was even better but we liked where we were. Central excellent location to AMS.

Both the room and the hosts were amazing. Exceptional service with a friendly and helpful staff that make you feel like you're home. We also loved the cat. :)
The Double Dutch (and Barangay B&B) is recommended to everyone planning a visit to Amsterdam.

My honey and I, and another couple stayed at the Double Dutch for four nights in April. Since there are only two en-suite bedrooms, besides the room for the person that maintains the place, we had the whole place to ourselves; definitely a plus. The Double Dutch is not a B&B since breakfast is not served; you either stock your own or go to one of the many cafes in the immediate area. From a location perspective, excellent, on a pretty canal, next to a lively square, in the heart of happening Amsterdam.

I am finding it a little difficult to write this review because among the four of us our feelings about the Double Dutch were split between the guys and the gals. The guys found the place interesting, quirky, comfortable, and convenient. The gals probably would have preferred a more "up-scale" place, though I am not sure that is the right word, sine they also liked the Double Dutch. There biggest issue for them was the next door fish market, associated smell (only outside; not in the apartment), and the accompanying garbage piled in front. Us boys overlooked or ignored that, for the most part, given the positives mentioned above. The immediate area of the square also tended to have accumulations of garbage because of the weekend market in the square; expected to some degree; and the market itself is a plus, so, good with the bad.

We all found the cat to be a nuisance; ensuring it did not run out of the place when we came or went; keeping it out of our rooms; or off our laps when sitting in the living room; scratching at our clothes and luggage; and cleaning up after it, the one time it pooped in the living room. But cat people will probably love the critter. (I am not sure if when I made the reservation I knew there would be a cat or not - though it is mentioned in some of the other reviews).

Lastly, my wife and I found our bed uncomfortable (room on top floor); the other couple were ok with theirs.

I think that my buddy and I would not have a problem staying here again; our wives would not stay again. I rated the Double Dutch as very good, but it is probably, for us, somewhere between average and very good given the differences of opinion.

My husband and I decided to take our first trip to Amsterdam. We book the Double Dutch before we left the US. We both feel like this B&B absolutely MADE our trip to Amsterdam. When we arrived we were greet by Wimo (the owner). Wimo is such a nice guy and he helped us with any questions we had about Amsterdam. He gave us the keys and we could come and go as we pleased. The location is PERFECT. Sooo close to everything. If you are thinking about booking. YOU SHOULD!

Our room was very spacious with a very small bathroom. The stairs and windy and steep but worth it.
Ed greeted us and was very friendly and had great tips about the city.
I would recommend this hotel and stay there again if in Amsterdam.
There was free wi-fi.

Double Dutch is in a great location, close to Centraal station. Although central the B&B is not in the crazily busy area of Amsterdam where all he tourists & stag parties congregate. Zeedijk is a street very nearby where there are lots of nice restaurants & bars (mentioned in Time Out Guidebook). We were greeted by Ed who was super friendly & gave us a map of the area & told us were the good restaurants were.
Our room was very spacious with fridge, tea & coffee making facilities & a small but very nice bathroom. Everything was very clean & decorated in a quirky & charming way. The rooms are at the back of the house so are peaceful. We made friends with the resident cat who is very sweet.
The kitchen downstairs was well equiped & a nice place to make your breakfast as none is provided. There are lots of lovely cafes nearby though.
I would definitely recommend this B&B.
