I spent 5 nights at this B&B. I stayed in the large room and was thrilled with the space (certainly worth the extra money). Fresh fruit, breads with meat and cheese were brought every evening. It is a little removed from all the action in Amsterdam but I found that to be a bonus. It is only a short walk from central station and all the attractions. I only have a couple of concerns that could have made my stay better and would be easy to correct. The towels are hard and only 1 small bar of soap was supplied, so bring your own toiletries. There is no name on the entrance or mailbox so it is very hard to find the first time. Make sure to get ALL the contact information including their home address so you can buzz them when you arrive so you can get a key. If they correct these things, they would certainly receive an excellent rating for service also. Even with these few small complaints, the owners a very nice and the stay was great.
