“Just like home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

As soon as we arrived, Astrid made us feel right at home, she gave us a map and pointed out the best places to see, restaurants to go to, and where to catch the trams. She also gave us bikes free of charge, to ride around the city and parks. The little cabin was set right at the back of Astrid's home in a peaceful garden with a beautiful green outlook. The cabin is a great size and the space has been used so creatively. There are no neighbours which is even better! The beds were extremely comfortable, it even came with a nespresso coffee machine (better coffee than most cafe's in Amsterdam!) The location couldn't have been better, far enough away from all of the noise in the city, yet close enough to enjoy a 5-10 minute bike ride through the park to get there. Plenty of cafe's and restaurants, supermarkets and even a bar that we discovered on the last night, unfortunately didn't get to go but apparently is one of the best in Amsterdam!
Thank you Astrid for making us feel right at home!

Flores & Puck is a cozy little cottage in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood just a 15 min bike ride away from the sites. With bathrobes, umbrellas, toiletries, coffees, teas, stroopwafels and more, the clean and tidy cottage had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Astrid was also the perfect host, lending us maps and two bikes to explore Amsterdam. She even surprised us with an additional tin of stroopwafels after discovering how much we enjoyed them. Even after we left, Astrid continued to go out of her way for us by mailing us the memory card we had left behind. Flores & Puck was absolutely perfect for our needs and was an amazing value for the price. It will be our first choice when we return to the wonderful city of Amsterdam in the future.

We were very well looked after by Astrid. The separate entrance means you can come and go as you want without disturbing anyone. The room was great with everything you could ask for. Breakfast was delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed four nights in May at this lovely B&B. We had our own little cottage in back of the owner's, Astrid, home. The room was spotless, and cleaned daily. We chose not to have the breakfast because we are not big eaters, but Astrid supplies the room with a lovely coffee maker, hot water kettle, and a wonderful selection of coffees and teas. Also provided is a refrigerator, eating utensils, wine glasses, bottle openers, and plates. There is a garden separating the cottage from the home and chairs and a table are in the garden by our cottage. Every evening before dinner my husband and I would sit outside with a glass of wine and cheese and crackers! The weather was great and this added addition was lovely. The B&B is not located in central Amsterdam but is close to public transportation and one can walk to the major museums in 20 minutes (the walk is through a lovely, big park). It was nice not being in the center of the city, which can be very crowded. In addition, the B&B is in a lovely neighborhood with wonderful restaurants nearby and many specialty shops. Astrid was wonderful. She was available to answer all of our questions. She offered to get tickets for us for the museums and she provided orange juice and cookies. She even did laundry for us! In addition, after we left and had walked to bus with our suitcases, she ran after us with a "gift" of wonderful cookies. How sweet!!! I highly recommend this B&B!!!

The hardest thing about Flores & Puck is leaving it..! From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and at ease. The cottage itself is beautiful, with every luxury and comfort you could possibly desire. The bed was so comfortable and so soft and the only thing pulling yourself out of it in the morning is the thought of missing a day out in the city center and Astrid's delicious breakfast waiting for you. Being tucked away at the bottom of the garden gives you your own privacy. Surrounded by pear trees gives it a little touch of magic and often you forget that you're at the bottom of somebodies garden and that you're a stones throw away from the bustling city of Amsterdam. As for our wonderful host herself, she is humble, friendly and compassionate. It would appear she dotes on all her guest as if they were her own friends and family, and this is further reflected in all of the comments in the guestbook that go back for years and years. We highly recommend it and have done to all who will hear about it. We couldn't have asked for a more enchanting trip and we patiently await the day that we are able to return to our never-never land in the Netherlands!

We spent four wonderful nights here. Agree with everything wriiten by previous reviewers. Astrid looked after us so well and my gluten free breakfasts (and lunches) were delicious. The cottage is immaculate, private and quiet - we were only woken once and that was a pear falling from the tree onto the roof! it really is a delightful little gem of a place and we cannot recommed it highly enough. a huge thank you to Astrid for making our stay so special.
