We stayed at the bed and breakfast for three nights.
Willemien was helpful and kind.
The room was clean and nicely furnished, with lots of light, overlooking quiet gardens. There was a ceiling fan as well, which was useful given the summer temperatures.
There was no breakfast available, but in the room we had a boiler we could use, and a tea selection. Also, the supermarket was at a two minute walk from the bed and breakfast.
It is in a very good position, a five minute walk from the Amstel and very close to the De Pijp district. It also allows easy access to trams and buses, and a ten minute voyage to all areas of the town (in the period we were staying, the underground stations were closed).
We had a very pleasant stay, and hope to repeat it again in the future!!
Just beware of the very steep steps at the entrance, they are tricky if you are carrying very heavy luggage.
