“Nice B&B in a quiet neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2011

This was a 1 seperate bedroom place with a sleep sofa, extra sofa and rollaway in the main room located in a residential area of Amsterdam call the Plantage near the zoo. The seperate bedroom had aqueen bed and a seperate bath was a bit small but adequate, Like most residences in this area the steps are very narrow, curving and very difficult to get up with luggage. The refrigerator was well stocked with breakfast items and was restocked daily. The kitchen was fully equipped however the using more than one appliance blew the circuit breaker. We had hoped for more information on the neighborhood from the owner but it was not forthcoming. It is a 30-35 minute walk to the central train station area or museum district but it was worth the walk. Trams, subways and canal boats were all within a 5-10 walk from the residence.

Room Tip: Ask for the first floor suite (whcis the second floor in Europe)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2010

This b&B is located on a canal near the university district giving easy access to many of Amsterdam's best attractions by foot. The Van Gogh museum and Rijskmuseum were fifteen minutes by foot and the Centraal Station three short stops on the metro. The rooms are located on the second floor up a steep flight of steps. Our room was a good size, although the whole living area (bed, sitting area, kitchen, and eating space) was one with an attached bath. With the fold-out cot set up there wasn't a great deal of extra room. The beds were also not the most comfortable, especially the cot which was quite small, lumpy and bumpy. The room had two walls of large windows overlooking the street that provided lots of light, but also some noise from below. For breakfast, the host came each day to ensure that the kitchen was stocked with cereal, fresh bread, milk, yogourt, butter, meat, cheese, coffee, juice, fruit, and jam. Having the kitchen thus gave you great flexibility as to when you ate. It also provided you with the means to make your own other meals, if you so desired. Our host, Joyce was very friendly and extremely helpful. She provided some excellent restaurant recommendations nearby. I would definitely suggest staying in this b&b, as the price for such good accommodations was very reasonable.
