This is an excellently located B&B in the Jordaan district. It's by the canal and two very short blocks from the tram stop that takes you directly to Centraal Station.
Chris & Clarita are very nice and hospitable. Take their suggestions for places to eat; Clarita knows her stuff. Chris is great fun to talk to and is sincerely interested in sharing his views, and hearing yours, rather than just being a good host.
The location is perfect - a short walk to the Anne Frank house and 20mins (on foot at a brisk pace) to everything else you want to see - the Van Gogh and Rijks museums, a canal boat tour, the shopping district, the Damrak, etc. They are also very close to a nice breakfast (Friends) & light lunch (Foodism) place as well as Pharmacy/store is you require one.
There are some very nice brown cafes in this area. My favourite was Cafe 't Smalle. It's cozy, quiet and they serve THE BEST apple cake/pie ever. It's a shame I couldn't bring it back with me.
I absolutely intend to go stay at Bloembed again as I intend to visit The Netherlands again. I felt very welcomed and was very comfortable staying here. Highly recommended.
