Location - We were looking for a bed & breakfast close to main tram lines, able to accommodate 5 adults and we found it. The #1 tram is located right near the b&b making it a 15 minutes tram ride to the city center. The b&b is located on a quiet residential street which neighbors Vondelpark, it was perfect to retreat back our quiet room after spending the day in the hustle & bustle of the busy city center. A grocery store is located near buy.
B&B Room - The b&b only offers two rooms which we both booked. The are located on the 2nd floor. The "east" room is bright and spacious, It faces the residential street and offers a small balcony. 3 adults slept comfortably in this room. It also offers a kitchenette which we found useful. The "west" room is large with an incredibly comfortable bed. It faces a court yard type area in which you are able to see in everyone elses windows and no balcony. It also has a kitchenette. 2 adults fit comfortably in the 'west' room. The only thing is the owners son's live on the floor about and at times they were a bit loud. There is no safe in the rooms, but only the owner and her 2 sons reside in the building so I wasn't worried. Wireless internet is also available at no cost.
Food - Breakfast was brought to our door every morning at 8:30am, it included croissants, yogurt, granola, meat/cheese, strawberries, orange juice and milk. Perfect for us and is a great alternative if you aren't wanting to spend 15 euros/each to eat out every morning.
Staff - Els, the owner made us feel right at home, very friendly and accommodating. We were able to come and go as we please.
Overall - We stayed for 7 days and it met all our needs, seeing as we booked for 7 nights we only paid for 5. For 50 euros/person you can't go wrong, this is an excellent deal with great service. We'd stay here again without a doubt.
