“Great value for Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

For 110€/night I would not call this cheap in another city, but in Amsterdam it sure is a great value. The location is perfect, just five minutes walk from the West-Church (so 10-15 from Dam Square). The place has three rooms, all very pretty. The ones on the top floor are somewhat more "typical" and cozy, but the stairs to get there are reeeeeally steep. The room on the second floor is very nice as well, and easier to access, with a somewhat bigger bathroom.
Alright, as many other reviewers said, the biggest plus of this B&B is probably the breakfast. Every morning Vicky would lovely prepare you eggs, bacon, waffles or some other sweet, toast, fruit and yogurt, all generously served with Nespresso coffee.
If I am back in Amsterdam and still want to be in a B&B I would surely go back to Bayan!

I have just returned from Vicky's guest house.I was with my partner for 2 nights.Beforehand Vicky sent me an accurate description of how to get there from the airport.The train from the airport then tram number from the airport.The tram is only 3 stops and to be honest a 10 minute walk which we did back today.The guesthouse is easy to find and Vicky was welcoming when we arrived .We were on the 3rd floor which yes is steep but si is all of the places in Amsterdam.The room was on the main steet but not noisey and spacious with authentic decor,comfy bed,couch,table and chairs and lovely bathroom.Vicky gave us a map of Amsterdam and Holland passes.It was raining and cold and Vicky offered me her warm jacket which believe me was well appreciated.Breakfast was amazing,bacon,eggs,juice,fruit,yogurt and cake!the location was fantastic with everything on your doorstop.The canal cruise a 2 minute walk,Anne Frank House on the corner and much more within minutes.The lovely Jordaan district just round the corner was a gem with quaint Dutch shops and cafes with trendy shops.Vicky was a great host,most accommodating and genuine.I would highly recommend this place and it is good value.My partner and I walked everywhere as it was so central but you can rent bikes a couple doors down.Thanks Vicky,you made a wet and cold week end much better.

Great BnB in the heart of Amsterdam, located 3 tram stops from Centraal station. Anne Frank House is a 5-min walk away. Our host Vicky was courteous and of great assistance with information/tips about Amsterdam's attractions. She and her husband helped carry our luggage up the narrow winding staircase. A tasty hot breakfast was served each morning downstairs in the dining room. Vicky also brought up a cold breakfast the night before our early morning departure. We stayed in the rooms on the topmost floor, both well furnished. One room had windows facing the back of the property; it was quiet and comfortable. The ensuite bathroom was well equipped with towels and amenities. The other room faced the main road and was noisy, the bed was not as comfortable and wifi signal was slightly weaker. Other minor points of observation - There was no exhaust fan in this ensuite bathroom, whose toilet roll holder was broken & the doorknob was falling off. Cash-only payment meant we had to carry more cash on hand than desired. Overall, a very good stay.

We stayed with Vicky and her family for 6 nights and were extremely satisfied with everything about Banyan. Location is great, breakfast huge, varied and tasty, room large and clean and you would be hard pressed to find a more friendly relaxed host family. Certainly recommend it for your Amsterdam stay.

Room Tip: We were in the back room which was extremely quiet and looked out onto a well of gardens from neighb...

It's with pleasure to let future guests know that my wife and I had a wonderful stay because of the cleanliness and general facilities. The proprietor also had a wonderful super service attitude.
She couldn't have been more gracious and helpful. Also served the best breakfast we've encountered in our travels.

Arrived the same day I booked the room. Their smallest room is still spacious. Overall, I enjoyed my stay there!

The guest house is owned by a nice filipino family. They're very friendly and they offered tips about the city.

Bayan is accessible via the tram, just have to walk around 200 m to get to the station.
