Rita is the owner of this wonderful B&B. We emailed each other back and forth working out the details of arrival times, transportation and nearby restaurants. I knew from the photos and the treatment I received from the email that this would be first class. When we arrived we heard the noise of construction equipment and my heart sank. Then strangely the man operating the backhoe stopped and asked if I was the American from Italy. Yes, I said and with that the crew began to put away their tools for the rest of the weekend. I have no idea what Rita said to this crew of workers but she was obviously very convincing. The rest of the stay was 100% peaceful. The inside of the B&B is absolutely magnificent...a true home. When Rita explains how she will quietly enter the suite at an agreed to hour to setup breakfast, I thought that this was heaven...breakfast (and really a 5star meal) setup in the privacy of my suite...fantastic. With the door to the bedroom closed, Rita quietly setup the breakfast and when we heard her leave we hopped out of bed to find fresh fruits, yogurt, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee in a thermos and much more. Whether you are a family or couple, you would enjoy this experience...within 50 meters in one direction is Vondel Park perfect for a jog or letting the kids run around. 50 meters in the other direction is a street lined with restaurants and shops. Plus the number 1 tram is also only a 50 meter walk which will take you to the center or the train station. If you have special needs, do not hesitate to ask. I think Rita likes to make her guests very happy. I will definitely be going back.
