We rented both rooms here (one for my mother, the other for my husband & me) and it was an excellent arrangement for our week in Amsterdam!
Owners Chris & Clarita are the perfect hosts, from accommodating our early arrival, to stocking the kitchen with a variety of delicious breakfast foods, and even arranging for a taxi to take us to the airport on our last day (we didn't bring a cell phone). Their recommendations for meals in the neighborhood were spot-on (we loved Foodism, Burgers Patio, and Long Pura).
The location is an excellent home base for exploring the city. Just 1-2 blocks' walk and you can catch a tram or taxi from Rozengracht or Marnixstraat. Bloemgracht itself is a picturesque canal with lovely homes and businesses lining each side. The neighborhood feels very friendly and safe.
The 2 bedrooms in Bloembed B&B are comfortably appointed, each with its own en suite bathroom with shower. There was always plenty of hot water, with excellent water pressure. The kitchen (shared between the 2 bedroom suites) includes an under-counter refrigerator, a Senseo coffee maker (we loved the coffee!!), an egg cooker (which Chris kindly taught us to use), and a sink. And of course dishes and food! :-)
The entire B&B was spotlessly clean (I have severe allergies and did not have the slightest problem here). In addition to a number of helpful maps, brochures, and travel books, the owners provided a netbook with wifi, which was such a nice touch.
We had such a nice time in Amsterdam, and so much of that had to do with our peaceful home base at Bloembed B&B. Thanks, Chris and Clarita, for being such fabulous hosts!
